Description :
Library providing torrent downloading code.

Update Information:

KTorrent 4.0.2    This release add some rather interesting features like magnet
support and the µTP protocol (bittorrent over UDP).    * Authentication can now
be disabled in the webinterface (use with care obviously)  * A new plugin to
generate magnet URI's from torrents was added  * Events like hibernating and the
network going down for some time, are now handled in a better way.  * Individual
torrents can now be paused (downloading and uploading is stopped, but
connections are kept alive), this has resulted in the pausing of the queue to be
renamed to suspend.  * A disk getting full is now handled in a much better way
* UDP tracker scraping was added  * The usability of the queue manager widget
has been improved by adding search functionality, indicating whether a torrent
is a seed or a download, and making it possible to move multiple torrents at the
same time.   * You can now add multiple trackers at the same time  * The
bandwidth scheduler can now be disabled temporarily  * The IP filter dialog now
supports IP ranges.  * KTorrent has now split into the application ktorrent and
the library libktorrent. Libktorrent contains all the torrent downloading code,
and ktorrent contains all application code and plugins.    More details about
KTorrent 4.0.0 here: http://ktorrent.org/?q=node/42    Several KTorrent 4.0.0
crashes have been fixed, as well as a problem which caused a lot of disk
activity when downloading at high speed on certain filesystems.    More details
about KTorrent 4.0.1 here: http://ktorrent.org/?q=node/43    A couple of crashes
fixed in KTorrent 4.0.2. The performance and stability of the µTP implementation
has also been improved.    More details about KTorrent 4.0.1 here:
