UPnP goes open source

A few weeks have passed since we announced the UPnP console, which is based on the same code that is used by the download applet to configure port mappings on your router.

Although UPnP should be a standard protocol, the code we wrote should be tested against as much hardware as possible, and not just our home routers. ;)

As some of you may know, we've been long considering open sourcing parts of BitLet.
We thought the UPnP library we developed for bitlet would be an ideal candidate to start with. It is quite small and synthetic, it solves a widely diffused need and it would benefit from further testing.

We called the library weupnp, and we published it under a LGPL licence. Feel free to adopt it if it suits your needs or to contribute to it.

Where is the project hosted? As a fan of BitLet, open source, and BitTorrent, this is great to see. Let's hope it goes well and leads to more of the code being released =)

The project is hosted here:

The link is already in the article but probabily it'd deserve more visibility.
