DistribuStream is a fully open peercasting system, allowing on-demand or live streaming media to be delivered at a fraction of the normal cost. Content is distributed using segmented downloading similar to BitTorrent, but provided in-order so it can be displayed on-the-fly as it is being downloaded.

Release Notes: This release adds support for daemonization, allowing the dstream executable to be run in the background automatically. You can now elect to run dstream in the foreground by adding the -f command line option or by setting "daemonize: false" in the configuration file. This release also brings major improvements to the traffic routing algorithm. A new scoring method is used to determine which peer should be used for a given download, incorporating the trust model, bandwidth modeling, and prefix information.
