BitSlug is a BitTorrent client for Mac OS X

BitSlug is a BitTorrent client for Mac OS X, aiming at low CPU usage and tight integration into the desktop. Since there are already some native implementations of the BitTorrent protocol available, I decided not to implement one of my own, but instead use one that's suitable for a GUI application.
First, I wanted to use libbt, because it's written in C and doesn't require external libraries. Unfortunately, libbt has a very strange design, and is by all means not a good solution for an object-oriented GUI application.
Now, there are two C++ libraries. libtorrent and libtorrent. Yes, they've both got the same name. One uses sigc++ and targets mainly Linux (it works on OS X though), the other is extremely portable thanks to the C++ class library boost. I chose the latter, and I think it saved me a lot of effort. Thus, basically, thanks go to Rasterbar Software for their good implementation.

Please note this is my first Cocoa application. I just wanted something useful for me and others, so I chose a BitTorrent client.

If you'd like a feature to be implemented or a bug fixed, don't hesitate to contact me. I hope I can handle the traffic. If you like, you can also directly go to the SourceForge project page and file your complaints in the bug tracking system.
