BitRocket Editor's ReviewBitRocket is an Open Source BitTorrent client with a pretty good implementation of the BT protocol.
This application has all the required features for a decent BT client. You can use the Port Forwarding via UPnP or NAT-PMP. By using these features you won't have to manually configure the NAT in your router if you have one and if it has the support for these protocols.
This client comes with RSS support too. You can download your favorite torrents without visiting the tracker if you configure the filters in the right way.
BitRocket has an integrated search engine. You can search the torrents on your favorite trackers without visiting the tracker from the Web interface.
The torrent generator has a very simple and easy to use interface. You can create your own torrents just with a few mouse clicks. The private flag is supported in order to host your torrents on private trackers. The private flag is used in order to switch off the peer exchange and the DHT.
If you don't want to use private trackers then the support for DHT is implemented in order to decentralize the torrent and use the DHT networks. The producers didn't publish the list with the DHT compatibility, but I guess this client is compatible with most of the DHT implementations.
Another important feature is the IP filter, but it works without any user support. You don't have any access to the IP filtering functionality. The program decides which IP should be banned for sending bad data.
Pluses: a pretty good BT client with all the required features. It uses less resources than Azureus.
Drawbacks / flaws: the interface could be a little flexible. I didn't like the fact that I couldn't sort the peer list and the statistics are poor. It has crashed once during the testing.
In conclusion: it is a decent BT client and won't use lots of resources. The fact that it comes under Open Source license makes it a real BT client. This new version, 0.1(25), is still a beta version but it comes with some bugfixes.
version reviewed: 0.1(25)
