Halite (named after the mineral) is a C++ BitTorrent client based on the excellent libtorrent library from Rasterbar Software. The program also relies heavily on the Boost libraries.

This release really doesn't add any new features, instead it is hopefully a fix for people who reported stability issues with the previous release. The 'hopefully' part is because I could not reproduce the crashes which were being reported even working with someone who could tell me their exact setup. But after some work it seems the error is being caught. One thing people will notice is no logging build. Frankly the verbose logging is great for tracking down protocol issues not UI ones so those massive logs just weren't helpful. Instead now a much broader class of errors are logged at runtime. So anyone seeing 'Critical' errors can report them to help catch bugs.

As for new features, well Halite 0.3.2 will be based on 0.14 libtorrent code which is still in progress. That said it has recently reached a stable enough state that I feel confident that a new snapshot could be released based on it. If I can get my act together that will be next week.
