BitTorrent plugin for Canola - GSoC 2009 Project

Project summary

The purpose of this project is to develop a BitTorrent plugin for Canola. So far I can have list of RSS feeds and list of torrents for each. RSS feeds allow quick access to fresh torrents on several websites. The backend will be based on Transmission. Most used BitTorrent client for Maemo is Transmission, it exposes JSON based RPC interface which is easy to use from plugin. After completion of this feature I will also add libtransmission support so running Transmission separately is not required.
