Developer: Eóin O'Callaghan Halite (named after the mineral) is a BitTorrent client based on Arvid Norberg's excellent libtorrent library from Rasterbar Software. The program also relies on the Boost libraries.
Features: While still at an early state of development Halite is a functional BitTorrent client. So far its list of features is pretty standard but that is because I want to ensure it does the basic stuff well.
That said, it supports:
File selection and/or file priority specifications. 'Managed torrent' queue system. Disk cache support. Trackerless torrents (using the Mainline kademlia DHT protocol). Magnet URIs. Super-seeding. uTorrent style multi-tracker announcement. IP filtering with eMule style ipfilter.dat import. Protocol Encryption support. Translations of the UI into a number of languages through the help of volunteers. (if you wish to help with a translation then please do) Minimise to tray with transfer rate summary. Full Unicode support through UTF-8 and native Windows wide-char strings. Login support where tracker requires it. Ability to edit trackers specified in the torrent. Transfer rate and connection limits both global and per-torrent. Torrent file creation. Port randomisation and forwarding (UnPlug and Play or NAT-PMP) Compatible with UAC. Shutdown scheduler.
