FoxTorrent 1.0!

Oh, sheesh, Tom is far too modest. This latest release represents far more than just another platform, or just a few more features. This release represents a complete, functional, usable 1.0 product and marks our official entry into the BitTorrent world.

I think congratulations are in order to Ivan for the great work porting everything over to Mac and Linux, to Tyler for making vast improvements to the underlying web UI, and of course to Tom, for doing the heavy lifting on the client code and for having “the vision” in the first place. Way to go guys!

Anyway, please give it a shot, kick the tires, and let us know what you think– this is the last chance before the masses come!

    Sorry for being noobish but how do I get this to work? When I download a “torrent” file it just downloads as normal, then what? I noted this in the tools menu – http://127.0.0.1:9421/rsui/0/inbrowser.html – but it fails to load any page.
