First Beta

The first Beta release of Tornado

Introducing Tornado beta version 0.1.0!

This is the first official beta release of the Tornado BitTorrent client, and the first public release in general. You can view us on GitLab here.

Tornado is a modern web-first BitTorrent client designed with usability in mind. Based on the fantastic Transmission BitTorrent Client Tornado is fast and lightweight.

We would like to thank the larger Rust and VueJS communities for creating some truly awesome tools for developers which have allowed us to make Tornado.

And we would like to thank the Rensselaer Center for Open Source for promoting Free and Open Source software projects such as ours.
