I’m pleased to announce that Xtorrent Public Beta 2 is now available for testing. Xtorrent is an advanced torrent client that aims to bring a friendly interface and powerful features to the world of BitTorrent.
The largest change in Beta 2 is an under-the-hood overhaul of the downloads pane. The only visible manifestation of this right now is that the folder structure of downloading torrents can now be browsed, much like in the search pane. This rearchitecting work was done to lay a foundation for future advanced features and facilitate future integration work between the search pane, downloads pane, and (as of yet unreleased) RSS module.
More visibly, the swarm column in the search view has been redesigned, and can now be expanded to reveal a breakdown of seeds and leeches information instead of a single aggregate swarm size value. Finally, the Xtorrent window will now accept drag and dropped .torrents, and even provides a slick informational overlay view.
