<http://groups.google.com/group/btpd-users/msg/d953117e3f863e20>, Richard Nyberg has moved on.
Lose the only patch, since upstream fixed the "test ==" bashisms. Use curl to fetch distfile from https site From the CHANGES file: btpd 0.16: ---------- Misc: - Added "start all" (start -a) command. - Allow adding multiple torrents at once. - Custom list formatting options. - Man pages for btpd, btcli, and btinfo. Bug fixes: - Handle .torrent files larger than 2MB. - http parsing and addrinfo freeing fixes.
in the previous revision. Pointed out by Onno van der Linden.
btpd 0.15: ---------- Bug fixes: - The event loop could busy loop for up to a millisecond sometimes. - On some platforms btpd couldn't initiate connections to other peers. - The timer code was broken on MacOS X. btpd 0.14: ---------- Misc: - IPv6 support. - Bans peers with bad data. - Better tracker compatability and more reliable tracker communication. - Show tracker counts in btcli stat. - Compiles on Solaris 10. - Btpd will now signal startup failures via the process exit value and print the failure reason to stdout. - Better shutdown and torrent stop behaviour. - Needs pthreads again. - Removed libevent in favour of own event loop code. Bug fixes: - An integer array was misaligned, which could cause crashes on systems with alignment requirements. E.g., on XScale arm. - An error in the torrent parsing code could cause crashes. - The '--topdir' option to btcli add didn't work properly for single file torrents. - The system name lookup scheme is now used. In btpd 0.13 only dns lookups were performed. btpd 0.13: ---------- Misc: - cURL is no longer required. btpd now uses its own http client. - btpd doesn't use threads anymore, so pthreads are not required. - Needed parts of libevent are now included in btpd. - I/O errors for torrents no longer make btpd shut down. Instead the problematic torrent is stopped. - Added the option '--ip' to specify the ip address btpd will report to trackers. - Resume file format changed. Already added torrents will be retested once. - The torrent info (ratio etc.) are now saved regularly. - Reduced the amount of outgoing data kept in memory.
on packages that are affected by the switch from the openssl 0.9.7 branch to the 0.9.8 branch. ok jlam@
I've also included pthread.buildlink3.mk to define PTHREAD_CFLAGS et. al. for configure and USE_FEATURES.openssl=threads. Changes: btpd 0.12: ---------- Misc: - btpd now starts with the same set of active torrents as it had when it was last shut down. The new '--empty-start' option disables this feature. - btpd now supports the key tracker extension. - btpd now supports the multi tracker extension. - btcli list and stat print headers for the presented data. Both commands displays more data than before. - Torrent management has changed, with changes to the add and del commands and two new commands, start and stop, as a result. Operation on torrents can now be done by number as well as torrent file. - A small delay has been added for contacting the same announce URL. - btpd sends keepalive messages. - The number of have messages sent has been reduced by not sending them to peers that already have the piece. - The structure of the torrents directory in the btpd directory has changed. It is best to remove it before running btpd 0.12. Bug fixes: - Zero sized files in a torrent were not always created.
increase its BUILDLINK_ABI_DEPENDS, and bump PKGREVISIONs of dependencies. Sorry for not finding this earlier.
btpd 0.11: ---------- Bug fixes: - A file descriptor was closed too early, which could cause btpd to exit with an error message on systems using epoll. btpd 0.10: ---------- Misc: - The protection mode of the ipc socket can now be specified via the new "--ipcprot" option for btpd. Bug fixes: - The pid file is now written correctly. - btpd's "-d" option now works for relative paths too. - Add a time out for handshake completion. Prevously btpd could slowly fill with unused incoming connections. btpd 0.9: --------- Misc: - Small changes to 'btcli stat' output. Bug fixes: - Use correct value for '--prealloc' default. - Stopped torrents now show correct rates (0kB/s). - The test of content that has been modified between runs was broken.
RECOMMENDED is removed. It becomes ABI_DEPENDS. BUILDLINK_RECOMMENDED.foo becomes BUILDLINK_ABI_DEPENDS.foo. BUILDLINK_DEPENDS.foo becomes BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.foo. BUILDLINK_DEPENDS does not change. IGNORE_RECOMMENDED (which defaulted to "no") becomes USE_ABI_DEPENDS which defaults to "yes". Added to obsolete.mk checking for IGNORE_RECOMMENDED. I did not manually go through and fix any aesthetic tab/spacing issues. I have tested the above patch on DragonFly building and packaging subversion and pkglint and their many dependencies. I have also tested USE_ABI_DEPENDS=no on my NetBSD workstation (where I have used IGNORE_RECOMMENDED for a long time). I have been an active user of IGNORE_RECOMMENDED since it was available. As suggested, I removed the documentation sentences suggesting bumping for "security" issues. As discussed on tech-pkg. I will commit to revbump, pkglint, pkg_install, createbuildlink separately. Note that if you use wip, it will fail! I will commit to pkgsrc-wip later (within day).
so depend on at least that version. Some cleanups while here.
btpd is a bittorrent client consisting of a daemon and client commands, which can be used to read and/or manipulate the daemon state. The daemon is capable of running several torrents simultaneously and only uses one tcp port. It's fairly low on resource usage and should be perfect for a torrent distribution site. Efficient downloads and ease of use makes this client a good choice for the casual user as well. Packaged by Richard Nyberg.
