KTorrent 4.1 adds super-seeding support
Version 4.1 of the KTorrent BitTorrent client for the KDE desktop is now available to download, a major release that adds several new features. The user interface has been redesigned to make better use of KDE's KParts technologies and support for super-seeding has been added.
Super-seeding works to minimise the amount of data that needs to be uploaded by the original seed until the first completion of a downloading peer – it is primarily intended to be used when there is only a single seed. Other changes include support for KIO magnet and video streaming, which enables users to start watching a movie while it's still downloading. A number of bugs found in the previous version have also been fixed.
