We went from jlibtorrent onto because we weren’t happy with how stable 1.2.4, 1.2.5 and 1.2.6 were, however the libtorrent 1.2.7 engine starts the downloads almost immediatly for decently seeded torrents and we’ve seen speeds above 7Mb/s on our testing environment.

Below the list of fixes, most coming from the libtorrent project.
