bac7eb9 @rmn64k Changes for 0.13.

61 btpd 0.12:
62 ----------
63
64 Misc:
65 - btpd now starts with the same set of active torrents as it had when it was
66 last shut down. The new '--empty-start' option disables this feature.
67 - btpd now supports the key tracker extension.
68 - btpd now supports the multi tracker extension.
69 - btcli list and stat print headers for the presented data. Both commands
70 displays more data than before.
71 - Torrent management has changed, with changes to the add and del commands
72 and two new commands, start and stop, as a result. Operation on torrents
73 can now be done by number as well as torrent file.
74 - A small delay has been added for contacting the same announce URL.
75 - btpd sends keepalive messages.
76 - The number of have messages sent has been reduced by not sending them to
77 peers that already have the piece.
78 - The structure of the torrents directory in the btpd directory has changed.
79 It is best to remove it before running btpd 0.12.
80
81 Bug fixes:
82 - Zero sized files in a torrent were not always created.

89 with an error message on systems using epoll.

97
98 Bug fixes:
99 - The pid file is now written correctly.
100 - btpd's "-d" option now works for relative paths too.
101 - Add a time out for handshake completion. Prevously btpd could slowly
102 fill with unused incoming connections.

109
110 Bug fixes:
111 - Use correct value for '--prealloc' default.
112 - Stopped torrents now show correct rates (0kB/s).

115 btpd 0.8:
116 ---------
117
118 Misc:
119 - btpd now requires pthreads.
120 - btpd keeps its logs and other information it needs in its own directory.
121 $HOME/.btpd is the default location.
122 - Various changes in btpd options ant btcli use. See '--help'.
123 - The user chooses where to place content for each torrent.
124 - Better disk IO performance.
125 - Configureable disk preallocation to reduce file fragmentation.
126 - The unchoke algorithm is global instead of per torrent. The number
127 of peers to upload to is configurable.
128 - Tracker errors are displayed in 'btcli stat' and most importantly don't
129 make torrents unload on startup.
130 - The rates displayed by btcli are now computed in btpd and are averaged
131 over the last 20 seconds.
132 - btpd now compares size and mtime of content to see if the resume file is
133 valid.
134
135 Bug fixes:
136 - Double uninterest messages could be sent to some peers in endgame mode.
137 - A function was called prematurely which could trigger an assert in rare
138 cases.

150 Misc:

171 Bug fixes:
172 - A calculation error made btpd buggy with small torrents.
173 This caused strange crashes and many reports on bad hashes in the log.
174 - The bitfield was sent too early. A peer could miss pieces btpd got
175 while the peer was in handshake.
176 - Some situations in end game or with bad hashes could cause a crash.

186 to compile with warnings off.
187

190 choked or was lost, causing a piece download to wait until end game.
191 - The peer wanted level could get too high during end game.
192

197 - A new way to do rate limiting.
198 - Compact mode is now used when talking to the tracker.
199
200 Bug fixes:
201 - A buffer was too small by four bytes, causing a buffer overflow
202 on the heap in certain conditions.
203 - An iteration over a list was unsafe and could cause a crash.
204 - Unloading a torrent didn't kill peers in handshake for that torrent,
205 and a crash was possible when the handshake finished.
206 - The counter for uploaded data was updated too early.
207 - Fixed illegal operator for test(1) in configure.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
