Summary     : BitTorrent library with a focus on high performance & good code
Description :
LibTorrent is a BitTorrent library written in C++ for *nix, with a focus
on high performance and good code. The library differentiates itself
from other implementations by transfering directly from file pages to
the network stack. On high-bandwidth connections it is able to seed at
3 times the speed of the official client.

Update Information:

* Updated to 0.13.1, 0.9.1
* Moved hash checking to a separate thread.
* Removed obsolete 'system.hash.read_ahead', 'system.hash.interval' and 'system.hash.max_tries'.
* Filter out unwanted peers using the IPv4 filter list
* Improved logging of file and hashing events, specifically to improve user feedback when something goes wrong during hashing.
* Improved logging using the new logging facilities.
* Disown tracker requests when closing or deleting a torrent so that they complete.
* Added stricter checking of negative and '-0' integers for the non-stream-based parsers,.
* Added 'd.chunks_seen', which is limited to 'Download::peers_accounted()' number of peers for optimization reasons.
* Added 'system.api_version', which will be incremented every time the API changes. (sans brainfarts)
* Use kqueue by default on mac os x since >10.5.5 fixed the bugs with stdin.
* Bumped default max file size to 128Gb.
* Fixed magnet links.
* Fixes for C++11 compatibility.
