Open source fork of vuze (the development of which has slowed significantly recently) by two of the original azureus/vuze developers.The project aims to continue to develop enhancements while returning to the basics by removing ads and bloated features.

does the net-p2p/vuze ebuild work for biglybt too?

AUR ships biglybt

Digging... I like Vuze, Azureus, generally torrenting on Java. 

As Azureus project seems to be dying, no commits in 2 years[1] from now, latest release in late 2017. BiglyBT is very actively developed and enhanced version of Vuze/Azureus project with some bugfixes.

Old software may have security issues. Looks live a lot of developers has moved from Vuze to BigltBT[2].

Adding current net-p2p/vuze maintainer in CC.

Please consider switching to this new upstream, net-p2p/vuze is blocking swt:3.8 cleanup.
