Initial implementation of this idea to extend the torrent creation wizard to allow torrents to be created from arbitrary files/directories.
*note the interface may change somewhat, this is an initial release to get some testing and feedback*

You can then drag+drop the files and directories you want in the torrent onto the wizard:
If there is more than one thing in the torrent you need to specify the name of the container that the items will logically be put into.
Currently there is no way to remove a file, you need to hit the ‘back’ button and restart. Also it isn’t possible to rename the items added, although again this can be added if people want the option.
You will want to seed this torrent (not much point in creating it otherwise) - either select the ‘seed’ option in the wizard
or if you add it to Vuze manually later make sure you add it for seeding.
