Some observations for those considering using bt this time...

Vuze under OpenJDK7 works fine. You need to grab swt-devel,
log4j, junit, commons-cli. If you're using the ancient Vuze port,
just replace the Vuze jar from that with the current one from
sourceforge. Until swt is updated, you probably want the classic
or console display.

Dtorrent trunk works fine.

QBitTorrent looks interesting.

As do a couple other native FreeBSD clients.

cdrtools works fine. (thanks joerg)

As soon at the 8.2 torrent file is posted to the tracker, a number
of folks I know will be seeding on the FreeBSD tracker and maybe
on into openbittorrent.

If you normally get the iso's via ftp, give bt a try, works great :)
