BitAnarch project suspended until Q2 2004

Sat, 06 Sep 2003 11:12:35 -0000

Due to the fact that there was absolutely no other developers supporting this project, and that I'm going to face the A-level examination next year. I can no longer work on this project and all the progress on this project will stop from now on.

BitAnarch 1.0.5 Final is here, NOW!!

Sun, 10 Aug 2003 06:40:45 -0000

THE Bittorrent client you've been waiting for! :-)

Bugfix: crashes at program termination/when the machine is very busy
Bugfix: Error message does not appear in non-English language settings
Silent allocation for NTFS
Stability greatly increased
CPU usage greatly decreased when minimized
System newsreader is now used to view nntp messages
The "Stay on top" setting now effects immediately, restart is no longer needed
Download rate limit
A spiced up user interface

BitAnarch 1.0.5 Final will be out in next week

Fri, 08 Aug 2003 07:05:04 -0000

This version will include fixes for the occasional crashes, MUCH decreased CPU usage, and a polished GUI interface.

Also you'll be able to set the download speed limit in the final version.

BitAnarch 1.0.5-beta2 is available

Wed, 06 Aug 2003 09:29:43 -0000

This version mainly fixes the date format bug in beta1, which makes it hang when it's scanning news servers when the day of month is <10.

Other additions include minor GUI bugfixes, and some speedups.

Bugfix: newsgroup scanner hangs
Bugfix: network status doesn't resize correctly
Bugfix: recorded seeds are not counted after download is finished
Bugfix: automation panel in preferences is now initialized correctly
Bugfix: main window does not pop up when BA is opening file thru IPC
The date and time parser for newsgroup headers adheres to RFC 2822 now
Changed the priority setting from "idle" to "below normal" when BA is minimized
* Please report if this reduces BA's crashes or not

Improved the network status refresh algorithm a bit to increase its efficiency

BitAnarch 1.0.5 has reached beta status!

Wed, 30 Jul 2003 06:04:16 -0000

Beta1 is out now! It should have solved most major bugs present in the alpha versions.

Improvements in this beta version include
1. A new option to let BitAnarch start with Windows. BA can now reside on the Windows taskbar peacefully and whenever you double click on a .torrent file, the resident BA instance will be called up to download it.
2. A much faster newsgroup scanning algorithm has been implemented. If you have a good broardband connection, scanning medium sized BitTorrent newsgroups is just a matter of a blink of the eye! You'll notice significant speed up in the scanner even if you have a slower connection.

BitAnarch 1.0.5 delayed

Sun, 13 Jul 2003 16:26:30 -0000

BA 1.0.5 will be delayed for a few days, because I'm busy at my schoolworks and university courses recently.

Sorry for any inconvenience

You can find some preliminary screenshots in news:// for the new UI and i18n support, though they're already pretty old.

Stay tuned for any updates :)
