A new release of BitTorrent is out, get it here -

http://bitconjurer.org/BitTorrent/

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
            under UNIX!
        * 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
            restarts
        * oodles of other small improvements
