I just pushed out BitTorrent 2.2, the protocols are now frozen.

This release includes supporting multiple publishers who have the same
file, and separate downloader query and announcement, so it can report
what port it's listening on and downloaders which don't start downloading
aren't included in lists of peers.

Smaller new features include compilation under BSD, changing the mimetype
to all low caps, and proper quoting in urls, to support characters like
space and equals in filenames.
