The qBittorrent project was created in March 2006 with the idea of developping a new Bittorrent client for Linux (and possibly other systems) that would be easy to use, good looking, featureful but lightweight.

qBittorrent is an attempt to provide a µtorrent equivalent on Linux. It is a Free Software released under the GNU GPLlicense. qBittorrent is based on Arvid Norberg's libtorrent-rasterbar.

The author is Christophe Dumez, a French Ph.D candidate in SeT research lab, attached to UTBM engineering school.
