Bitcomet follows Azureus and uTorrent

Bitcomet, one of the most popular BitTorrent clients decided to follow Azureus and uTorrent by implementing PE/MSE encryption in its latest release. Bitcomet was the first BitTorrent client that supported protocol header encryption, the switch to the new encryption method means that the three biggest torrent clients out there are using compatible encryption methods, good news.

Encrypting protocol headers is needed to fight ISP’s that are using bit-shaping applications to throttle the traffic that is generated by BitTorrent.

It should only ne a matter of time before other clients are going to implement this “new standard”. It is doubtful if the official clients is going to support it since Bram Cohen was not really enthusiast about these developments.
