peer_id and announce-list

BitLet has been updated!
The new version now supports the announce-list extension, and follows the specification that can be found here.

The applet generates also a new peer_id using the Azureus convention, so the new applet peer_id starts with "-WT-0001"

Note that the previous version of BitLet used the prefix "BitLet01", but since it is an applet (and therefore the update is, somehow, granted) you should not see the old peer_id anymore.

I write a bittorrent client and would like to parse this id. Should it be "BitLet 0.0.0.1", "BitLet 0.01", "BitLet 0.1", "BitLet 1", just "BitLet", or something else?

Hello livings124,
I think the version of bitlet is not as important as in other clients, because of the nature of the applet that should be always the latest version.
So I think just "BitLet" would be fine.
