I tried this out a few days ago. What I was really looking for was a way to get stuff from mainstream sites (i.e. The Pirate Bay) without having an intellectual pooperty owner getting my IP address and making my ISP send angry letters. Maybe I'm just not doing something right, but I'm not sure what features it offers that the built-in client does not. I suppose if you are using the C++ i2p implementation, it would compliment that.

Edit: It also operates a local webserver on port 1488, which is funny if coincidental.

It won't work with that, you must get the i2p torrents from places like http://tracker2.postman.i2p

No java is already a good selling point :)

Yeah, I prefer c++ in general, but i2pd doesn't have graphical configuration options. I just wanted to get right into torrenting.
