Blogging isn't really my strong suit, but I'll give it a shot this once :)

I'm currently working in the wxWidgets rewrite which will be the main feature before releasing the next version of PicoTorrent. The plan is to release at least one 0.x version before letting 1.0 hit the interwebs. This is to catch any obvious bugs which might have slipped through the cracks.

As you may have noticed on the landing page, the primary link now points to the regular download page and a donate button has appeared. The donation model will replace the $5 fee I've charged in the Windows Store. So the next version of PicoTorrent will be 100% free, even in the Windows Store. I'm very thankful for the people that have bought the app so far! Many coffees have been bought :)

So, the re-cap,

  • The next version is in the works!
  • The Windows Store release will bee free as of the next version!
  • Donating Bitcoins is a good way of supporting development!
