This fork is another set of UI patches on top of the original, it also includes a set of fixes and enhancements for rtorrent. It was originally created to use with rtorrent-ps-ch_setup project but it doesn't depend on it in any way.
UI changes on the fully customizable extended canvas:
- column/color lengths are shortened by 1 in column definition
- extra dynamic color schemes:
- sacrificial columns by default: Item state (☢), Number of connected peers (℞)
- modified columns: Message (❢), Uprate (∆⋮ ⟲), Uploaded data size (Σ⇈)
- added column: Throttle name (⊘)
- the order and colorization of some columns are changed
It adds couple of new keyboard shortcuts:
- list method type fix
- min_peers* settings fix
- inotify fix
- input history
- throttle status bar mod
- basic arithmetic operators
- partially done downloads fix
- choke groups fix
- temp filter
- partial system.file.allocate.set=1 fix
- CPU optimized build
- relative rpath linking
- git version support
- vanilla build of rtorrent is completely separated
- no docker support (due to CPU optimized build)
It also adds the following extra attributes, commands:
d.selected_size_bytes(partially done downloads and choke groups fix)
- math.* command group
ui.throttle.global.step.large.set(global throttle steps)
- d.parent_dir command and d.tracker_scrape.* command group
- d.eta.* command group
git build script parameter:
- if commits point to the release version of
libtorrentin build script then there shouldn't be a difference between release and git builds
- client versions (
libtorrent) are still untouched, that means client still report the latest release version (e.g.
0.9.7) to trackers, only title bar and directory names are changed to display the increased version number (e.g.

pyrocore utilities up and running in
tmux in 20 minutes.
Note: published binaries are NOT CPU optimized builds (for obvious reasons) hence Installing from Source is still the preferred way. If you still want to use them then see Debian Install From Tarballs, Packages.

Extended rTorrent distribution with UI enhancements, colorization, some added features, and a comprehensive standard configuration.
rTorrent-PS is a rTorrent distribution (not a fork of it),
in form of a set of patches that improve the user experience and stability
See the changelog for a timeline of applied changes,
especially those since the last official release.
rTorrent-PS is not the same as the
PyroScope command line
doesn't depend on them; the same is true the other way 'round. It's just
that both unsurprisingly have synergies if used together, and some
features do only work when both are present.
