Former Vuze Developers Launch BiglyBT, a ‘New’ Open Source Torrent Client

Two long-time developers of the Vuze BitTorrent client, formerly known as Azureus, have launched a new client. BiglyBT emerges at a time when Vuze development has stalled. The developers promise to take the project forward while removing all advertising and other annoyances.

Back in the summer of 2003 a group of developers debuted a new torrent client, which they called Azureus.

BitTorrent itself was still a relatively new technology at the time and users were eager to find new tools to transfer their files. The feature-rich Azureus client, which later rebranded to Vuze, delivered just that.

In recent years, however, things have gone relatively quiet, up to a point where Vuze development appears to have stalled completely. Perhaps not surprising, as two of the core developers, parg and TuxPaper, have left the project and moved on to something new.





nice to hear about new software development.
