This is a minor but important update – all Windows users must switch to this version if they want to be able to transfer files. This introduces a lot of bugfixes and some changes to match recent modifications to the protocol (nothing major, just reducing some overhead). Apparently it’s also much better on Windows 7.
Windows users should click here to download the latest version! Linux users should pull from the git repository (more info on the Downloads page).
I’ve created two test atorrents for you to experiment with. The first is Patent Absurdity, a new documentary about software patents (CC-BY-SA). It features interviews with Tim Lee, who I met at the Free Culture X conference in DC. He is the man, you should listen to what he has to say!
If you download either of the atorrents, please seed them for as long as you can! I’m seeding them, but I don’t have very much bandwidth (1 DSL shared by twelve machines..) The network around our tracker is getting dangerously small, which is why transfers aren’t starting for some people. Also, please make sure that you forward your ports to your machine so that other people can connect to you! By default, Anomos uses 5061, but you can change this in the settings if you want to use the BitTorrent default of 6881.
