Bittorrent clients that support IPv6

Wikipedia shows a list of bittorrent clients that support IPv6: µTorrent, Bitflu, BitTornado, BitTorrent 6, Bits on Wheels, Deluge, KTorrent, Opera, qBittorrent, TorrentFlux, Tribler, Vuze (formerly Azureus), TorrentVolve and BitTyrant.

That's quite an impressive list. More elaborate than the Sixxs bittorrent client list here.

IPv6 torrent content is here.
I believe Vuze (formerly Azureus) will discover and use IPv6 peers even if the tracker only does IPv4. I guess Vuze uses it's fantastic DHT to discover the IPv6 peers.

The nice thing about bittorrent over IPv6: no more problems with NAT and (the lack of) port forwarding.
