BTQueue 0.1.0 is available!

I’m very exciting to announce the release of BTQueue 0.1.0. After very so long waiting for a year, I have finished BTQueue 0.1.0 and hopefully it works well without the classical bugs, e.g., 100% utilization and freezing.

This version is kind of beta release. You can leave comments and report bugs to help me fix them all. My purpose is to develop BitTorrent client for production run in data center and co-location.

This is the new beginning of BTQueue. By upgrading to 0.1.0, you are able to:

  • Utilize DHT network compatible to Bram Cohen’s client and BitComet
  • Query IP location from updated database plus AS number (see ip2cc)
  • Change client identifier to Azureus, Bram Cohen’s client, or BitComet

Most of all, lots of bugs should be fixed during the update of the core. Can’t wait? Let’s go to the download section right now. Any bug reports or comments are welcome at http://www.howforge.com/forum.

Another referal from unknown language

Well, there is another referal at http://users.i.com.ua/~alexbes/a/btqueue.html I don't know what the language is but it should be Ukraine. Another one is http://robaco.mhx.com.br/blog/?q=node/92 in Brazil. Thanks LiveBlogStat.com to let me know these referals.

Referred by Slyck

I have just found that BTQueue had been referred by Slyck at Slyck"s Guide to BitTorrent.

Reengineering of btqueue.sourceforge.net

If you have ever noticed the changing of http://btqueue.sourceforge.net/, this is the first sign of BTQueue"s next generation. Actually, BTQueue 0.0.19 has been internally used by alpha testers for a year suddenly after 0.0.18 had been released. Unfortunately, frozen problem could not be permanently solved yet. I still don"t know what part caused the problem.

So, I decided to migrate core code, integrated to BitTornado, to original BitTorrent by Bram Cohen. I don’t mean BitTornado causes frozen problem. In fact, it would be the core code bridging BTQueue and BitTornado itself. Rewrite this code could lead to unstable but it must be worth to try. Nobody knows, the new code may be perfect for all of us.

This is still the main blog for BTQueue. The homepage at sourceforge will keep the documentation of BTQueue in blog format for easily publishing and editing online.

Sorry all of you for so long waiting. Actually, I don"t have machine to run BTQueue anymore. That"s why development goes very slow. Furthermore, I was switched to do so boring work about Java.

Fortunately, I have backed to Python right now. I am looking for a machine to test BTQueue. The development should continue shortly.

BitTornado doesn"t support proxy

I received a message in forum that requests for help about proxy setting in BTQueue. Unfortunately, BitTornado doesn"t use urllib2, instead it uses httplib for directly connecting to tracker. I am investigating to move to BitTorrent 4.2.1.

Sorry for long waiting...

I apologize everyone waiting for the next version of BTQueue. I miss the plan to release it last two month ago oops. By the way, I will release it some day. Actually, I am finishing my thesis so this is a hard time in my life to write my own paper to publish in a journal. The development is slowly moving on but not freeze!

Plan to switch back to original BitTorrent

I have tried to fix frozen problem in BTQueue since last two month but fail. It would be better to switch back to original BitTorrent by Bram. He has just released version 4.0.0.

I have found a project namely phpbtque at sourceforge. It is a Web interface to control BTQueue BitTorrent client. Written in PHP. Requires web server which understands PHP, and BTQueue BitTorrent client.
