XD 0.1.0-pre4 released, almost there.

XD 0.1.0-pre4 is out on github

Magnets should work entirely now, further testing desired. Please open an issue with any problems you find.

XD 0.1.0-pre3.5 released

XD 0.1.0-pre3.5 is out on github

The previous pre-released turn out to be non functional, I didn't properly test it. ;~;

If you downloaded the previous pre-release please consider testing this one instead.

XD 0.1.0-pre3 released, stable release sooooooon ™

XD 0.1.0-pre3 is out on github

Once all the bugs are flattened I will be releasing 0.1.0, this should be by April (probably).

You'll notice the memory use is much MUCH lower, this is because XD no longer caches pieces in memory while downloading (I don't know why I thought that was a good route in the first place...)

XD 0.1.0-pre2 released, testers wanted.

I have been writing an i2pd compatable bittorrent client called XD in golang. It has reached an almost end user ready state. 0.1.0 will be the first "official" release of it. Before that happens I need some beta testers.

If you want to help test it you can do the following

install i2pd from git

There are some bugfixes that are applicable to XD that are not in 2.17 yet.

If you don't know how to build from source the documentation is here

download and run XD

On Unix systems you can do something like this:

$ mkdir ~/XD/
$ cd ~/XD/
$ cp /path/to/downloaded/XD .

then make a symlink for XD-cli

$ ln -s XD XD-cli

on windows you can copy XD.exe …

i2pbote in go coming soon and i2p.rocks irc reverse proxy

I have started working on an i2pbote implementation in go on github. Currently it is non functional but in the coming months I'll be blogging about the development process as things get done.

If you know go and want to help expedite the development, get onto irc2p and join #i2p-chat channel.

In additioon, i2p.rocks now has experimental irc reverse proxy at *.i2p.rocks port 6697 using TLS, i.e. to access irc.dg.i2p you can connect irc.dg.i2p.rocks on port 6697 using ssl. Right now I don't have a wildcard certificate so you'll have to manually trust the connection. Source code for the reverse proxy is on github.

A super simple link for the irc channel using the i2p.rocks reverse rpoxy is ircs://irc.dg.i2p.rocks/i2p-chat.

Please do not send private info like login credentials over this service as tls is only used …
