Following a long period of network downtime, decentralized BitTorrent client eXeem has returned with an updated beta release. Its developers say they have listened to criticism and removed the built-in adware from third-party firms Cydoor and LookSmart, which marred the software’s initial reception.
eXeem was first launched earlier this year and is backed by the creators of SuprNova – once the largest BitTorrent hub. The software took a different approach from previous clients by building a “tracker” into the peer-to-peer network and eliminating the need for centralized servers. Recent network kinks essentially rendered eXeem inoperable, but version 0.25 claims to have fixed the problems.
