Theres a legal use for it ;)
I know that's a joke, but many don't. Many good technologies get bad raps because some people tend to use them for illegal things. I use bit torrent legally all the time.

Good release; too bad they used metal windows (looks a LOT better with regular windows and the table view pushed up a few pixels ;)).

I'm sorry but I have never managed to get the program to work. It just seems to be a collection of misc files which confuses me like linux would do. Not giving an indication of what to do next even the readme file is unhelpful, it assumes you know what the user is doing.

It sucks otherwise.

Hmmm, how did you make it look that way?
Instructions please... ;)

I've sent the dev feedback about the brushed metal, hopefully if others do the same he'll change it to aqua.

icon problems

I'm having icon problems.
The icon doesn't work in the Dock -- I get the generic application icon.
When I browse through the Applications folder I find anything that had the generic icon now has the new round BitTorrent icon.
Any ideas? Is it just me?

I've had that occasionally, with various apps. I repair permissions, run the periodic scripts*, and reboot. That always fixes it, although I'm not sure which of those steps actually fixes the problem.

* "sudo periodic daily weekly monthly" in Terminal.

You can open the app with xcode and remove the brushed interface, run an app like Metallifizer, or just use a theme that doesn't have a brushed variation.

Sure!

Download the attachment of this post, and unzip it. Then, copy the file "TorrentWindow.nib" (you'll be pasting it later).

Now, control-click the BitTorrent application and select "Show Package Contents." Then, go into Contents/Resources/English.lproj and paste the TorrentWindow.nib file :). This will also fix the log drawer, so it will be centered correctly.

Edit- uploaded a newer version of the .nib that also fixes a bug with the Log drawer where the contents could be edited (they shouldn't be able to).

BitTorrent has always been a perfectly friendly OS X app for me. And I like the metal :)

The use for it in my case is downloading big files like (free, legal) game add-ons over modem in multiple sessions.

As a big uploader/seeder I'm still sticking with Azureus, though it does have some annoying quirks (like shutting down when clicking on the red box).
