A new version of the popular BitTorrent client Bitcomet was just released. The new release doesn’t ignore the “private flag” like version 0.60 did.
This caused quite some controversy and led to a Bitcomet ban by several private trackers. By ignoring the “private flag” of torrents, so called private torrents became available to non-registered members through the DHT layer. DHT layers are “peer-to-peer” trackers (I like to keep things simple), and these don’t require an ip bound passkey in order to share.
So ScT Torrent, Midnight Torrents, UkNova and TorrentIt.com can embrace Bitcomet users once again.
