Halite is an open source and lightweight BitTorrent client with small memory footprint. Halite is based on Rasterbar’s Libtorrent library. It is one of the best BitTorrent client to bypass traffic shaping, espacially by TMNet. Recently, the developer of Halite released the development version Halite 0.3.1.6 revision 638. The latest version of Halite will be based on libtorrent 0.14 and came with new features!
Some noteable new features in Halite 0.3.1.6 revision 638:
- ‘Managed’ torrent queue system.
- Disk cache.
- Port randomization.
- Compatible with Windows Vista’s User Account Control.
Since it is still in testing phase, some bugs and not-so-developed features are present in this release:
- ‘Queue View’ mode is not supported on Windows 2000.
- Sorting in ‘Queue View’ mode is currently not functional under XP.
- CPU usage spikes if the file tab is left open for a torrent with a large number of separate files.
- Translations are not included in this release.
- No proxy support.
- No scraping trackers yet.
- Partfile system is still very confusing.
So far, the latest Halite build is quite stable even it is still in development version, but sometimes the preferences seems to be resetted to default if Halite crashed or not properly terminated (at least for me). The .torrent files are now stored in the torrent folder without the .xml file like the previous version. Some screenshots of latest Halite:

Without any doubt, Halite is currently my favorite torrent client. Halite is a powerful and simple (in fact, too simple) torrent client, based on libtorrent library. The best thing is, Halite can bypass TMNet traffic shaping.
Below are my Halite configuration. These settings helps me to achieve maximum download speed (well, it also depends on the torrent itself, seeder and peer count)
