MT0200 If you are not already familiar with what a torrent is, you should go visit http://bitconjurer.org, home of the plain-old-original BitTorrent client.
(But I am pretty sure more than 90% of people who wind up here do not do so by accident.)
*** Latest Featured Build ***
>>> MoonlightTorrent-0.2.0.0-Demo-06a (311KB) <<<
When will the first non-demo build be available? It depends on rainy days, mood and overall spare time.
Latest Stable Build: 0.1.0.1-alpha3-r1 (2004-05-01)
Current "Build du Jour" (WIP): 0.2.0.0-Demo-06a (2005-12-30)

Where do things core-wise stand right now, after the very loooong time since the last update?
Forum Status: I decided to trash IPB since 1.x.x has issues with Apache2/PHP5/MySQL a few weeks ago and started fresh with a new FOSS board.
- A new demo build should be available soon from the WIP page:
- Core: ~95% overall
- Only major things left to do:
- Stop / Pause / etc.
- Uploading - probably the main reason why my test builds are not posted yet... I am not exactly interested in MT being branded a leech client :)
- Add code to gracefully (at least to some extent) handle file errors like sharing violations and out-of-disk-space... they are either going to crash the program or make you wish it did
- Bandwidth management
- GUI Hooks (anybody interested in real-time updates?)
- GUI: 85%
- Torrents summary page (95%)
- Torrent Detail Tab and Sub-Tabs (95%)
- Stats and Info Tab (95%)
- Files Tab
- Peers Tab
- Pieces Tab
- Piece availability histogram tab (new in 05c)
- Config page (15%)
Since it is unlikely that I will have any time to do any serious work on MT with the few New Year parties I have on my list, I have decided to go ahead and post my current internal build. I hope some people will find it useful.
I managed to merge large chunks of code to simplify and optimize some structures without encountering any significant complications, if everything continues this smoothly for the remaining tweaks I wish to implement in the next demo build, it may be ready late this week. Since I am near my ISP's monthly bandwidth quota for the current billing month, I will not be able to do much real-world testing but preliminary results of my last private build seemed promising. There are only two or three more tweaks I wish to implement before posting a new build.
Wow, seven months since the last time I added bits of news to this page, I certainly was not planning to let 0200 to drag on for so long. I will not make any more promises that I am very unlikely to keep but I can at least tell the few people who still visit this page hoping for news that MoonlightTorrent is not dead yet. Over the last few months, I had many obligations and hardware/software problems that ate the lions' share of whatever spare time end energy I would have preferred to put elsewhere... and I do have a job lined up for this winter (Perl/C/C++ programmer again - though Perl is a new addition - and a ~1.5h commute again as well) so I am unlikely to have much spare time beyond January 9th. It is unlikely that I will be able to implement uploads during that time but I should be able to cross a few overdue items from my todo list until then.
The oldest older news is almost a year old so it is history.
...when I have time for it and feel like it.
