The new BT client, BTSlave, is available for download at:


Currently, it's only new and cool feature vs. other BitTorrent clients
is it's repeater mode.

In repeater mode, BTSlave downloads only a tiny fraction of what it
uploads.  The effect is similar to running as a seed, in that it helps
everyone else in the torrent download faster.  However, BTSlave lets you
donate your upload bandwidth without first having to download the
torrent's files.

The current release has only been tested on Fedora Core 3, and is only
available in source form.  It has a simple command-line interface, and
is suitable for running in the background.  The code is in C, and runs
fairly efficiently.

Alpha testers welcome.
