            Re-post:

            I would like to see:

            1. multi-tracker support as in BitTornado.

            2. ability to selectively download files in the whole torrent. as in BitComet.

            BTW, the response is a bit slow after inserting a job.

            If it had DHT, it would be perfect!

            I think that rtorrent is quite, quite nice, especially given the fact that it is written in a language that is compiled and is much lower on resources than other, similar clients (for instance, Azureus or the Python-based clients like Bittornado).


            I'm working with machines with limited resources and I prefer to only use Free Software (and Sun's JVM isn't Free).


            If rtorrent had something like Azureus DHT, then I think that this would make it a superb client.


            Oh, of course, the user interface, being based in curses, could be slightly improved, but that's a cosmetic part, of course.

            Thanks.
