There are a good number of bugs logged against it in launchpad (some
of them are dups, I'll se if I can clean some up today) but it's not
unmaintained or old. A new version was released last Sunday and the
version in Edgy was released in July.
So what's the real reason it was removed? Something to do with the
Bittorrent 4/5 license issues? Space on the CD?
It seems inconsistent with the "please us the .torrent if possible"
message to remove the nice GUI client.
I'm not opposed to a new client, but there should be a client.
