* Several new commands for use with XMLRPC. See the SVN log for a 
complete list.

* Fixed the wrong tracker requests being sent when finishing a torrent.

* Added Peer Exchange support, enable with the "peer_exchange=yes" 
option. Patch by Josef Drexler.

* Don't skip the last line in rc files missing the final newline. Patch 
by Jussi Judin.

* The torrent is no longer closed on finished for on_finished commands 
as it did last release. Instead d.set_directory causes the download to 
call close_directly to allow moving of finished torrents.

* Added "close_on_ratio".

* Allow commands to be appended to "{stop,close}_on_ratio", so you can 
e.g. erase a torrent that has finished.

* Set "encryption=allow_incoming,prefer_plaintext,enable_retry" by default.


The peer exchange causes high CPU usage on my machine while it connects 
to a large number of peers. This is not intended and I'll be looking to 
fix this, so if anyone else experience the same problem I'll be 
interested in some information.
