3 Today I have [released][10] the next version of [DebTorrent][20].
4 This is the first release to be available in a binary package
5 (.deb) form, and most of the changes are related to the packaging
6
7 I still consider the program to be alpha quality, though all the
8 functionality for a beta release is there, it just needs to be
9 tested (so tell your friends). I run the program daily and use it
10 for my apt-based updating, so I'm pretty sure it works, but there
11 are definitely bugs. If you do find one *please* submit it to the
12 [DebTorrent mailing list][30].
13
14 The installable binary can be found on the [Alioth project][10], or
15 in my [personal repository][40] which can be added to your
16 sources.list like so:
17
18 deb http://debian.camrdale.org/ unstable main contrib non-free
19
20 Once installed, it will start running automatically, and will
21 restart on bootup, so all that is needed is to modify your
22 sources.list files to point them at DebTorrent by prepending
23 localhost:9988 to the mirror name. For example, the entry above for
24 my personal repository would become:
25
26 deb http://localhost:9988/debian.camrdale.org/ unstable main contrib non-free
27
