mod_bt 0.0.7 has been released. You can download it here:


I believe (knock on wood) this version fixes the last of the serious bugs
in the tracker and that it is now suitable not just for
experimentation, but
also actual use. Future versions will concentrate on improving
and adding new features.

mod_bt is a BitTorrent tracker for the Apache webserver. It is written
in C
and runs as an Apache 2.x module. If you use Perl to write your dynamic
webpages, you can interface directly with the tracker, with either a
CGI or
mod_perl setup. If you use PHP instead, you can also interface with the
tracker (so long as PHP is running as an Apache module and not a CGI). The
tracker is fully configured from within Apache's own configuration file.  

mod_bt is alpha software. Bugs are being fixed, and features are being
added, all the time. The eventual goal of mod_bt is to seamlessly
Bram Cohen's BitTorrent protocol with Apache so that any webmaster who
serves up large files can shift the burden of bandwidth onto it's clients
with as little hassle as possible.
