Transmission bittorrent client successful with IPv6

Cool: as of December 15 2008, the bittorrent client "Transmission" has IPv6 implemented in the development version. I think it will become public with transmission version 1.5.

I couldn't wait for that, so I activated the "nightly build" on my Ubuntu by add the following lines to /etc/apt/sources.list:

I then installed and started Transmission. Version is 1.42+, FWIW.

Result:Transmission works with IPv6. It's connected to other IPv6 peers (using torrent "FreeBSD 7.0-Release i386 CD1" from sixxs IPV6 tracker), both BitTornado and utorrent. And ... over my teredo / miredo connection.
