A new release of BitTorrent is out, get it here -
Since there hasn't been one in a while (over a month!) there's a ton of
new stuff, including -
* rewritten UI - now all graphical and works in mozilla/netscape
* clean shutdown
* monothreading - this produced a *huge* performance increase
* several big bugs fixed - we're down to no known bugs!
* the publisher now stores metadata in files, so it doesn't have
to re-scan files every time it restarts
* the tracker now stores publisher and downloader information
persistently, so downloads start working again as soon as it
* oodles of other small improvements
