Re-post:

I would like to see:

1. multi-tracker support as in BitTornado.

2. ability to selectively download files in the whole torrent. as in BitComet.

BTW, the response is a bit slow after inserting a job.

If it had DHT, it would be perfect!

I think that rtorrent is quite, quite nice, especially given the fact that it is written in a language that is compiled and is much lower on resources than other, similar clients (for instance, Azureus or the Python-based clients like Bittornado).


I'm working with machines with limited resources and I prefer to only use Free Software (and Sun's JVM isn't Free).


If rtorrent had something like Azureus DHT, then I think that this would make it a superb client.


Oh, of course, the user interface, being based in curses, could be slightly improved, but that's a cosmetic part, of course.

Thanks.
