The next set of core features can be tracked here. This feature set requires large structural changes and therefore requires a complete rewrite for best results. This rewrite is in progress in the
0.9 branch though it will take quite some time.
In summary, the core features will be:
It's looking like
0.9will be more of a general purpose cloud transfer engine. It will be capable of transfering files from and source file-system to any destination file-system. A torrent can be viewed a folder with files, just like your local disk, and Dropbox. As long as it has a concept of files and folders, it could potentially be a cloud-torrent file-system backend. Track this issue https://github.com/jpillora/cloud-torrent/issues/24 for the list of proposed backends.
During a file tranfer, one could apply different transforms against the byte stream for various effect. For example, supported transforms might include: video transcoding (using ffmpeg), encryption and decryption, media sorting (file renaming), and writing multiple files as a single zip file.
Automatic updates Binary will upgrade itself, adding new features as they get released.
RSS Automatically add torrents, with smart episode filter.
Once completed, cloud-torrent will no longer be a simple torrent client and most likely project be renamed.
