Alan McGovern the developer of the BitSharp libraries (Bittorrent APIs for the CLI) started blogging.
Alan has continued his work from the Summer of Code, here are a few updates from him:
- On some challenges he is facing.
- Performance improvements: downloads went from 30k/s to 4.5MB/s and memory consumption is under 10 MB.
- GUI for BitSharp.
From his blog:
So it looks like i well achieved my aim of creating a cross platform client that uses less than 1/3 the ram that Azureus uses.
Here are a few screenshots of the updated GUI (Piotr did the GUI originally, and it has now been updated to the latest BitSharp API changes):
GUI running on Windows (This is Gtk# on Windows).
Alan keeps a To-Do list here, which should make it simple for people to help in the effort.
