I. Introduction[Bearbeiten]

The software Robert is a BitTorrent client, designed to work with I2P. Robert source code is based on the (defunct) software I2PRufus. Development on Robert started in year 2009, and latest release is 2013.

Robert has several translations because it is translatable from the Transifex.com web site (in the I2P's account).

Robert does support magnet links, and a DHT based torrent distribution.
