I always come here when I want a laugh about how bad the newest version is. There hasn't been anything of use to me recently so I'm still using 1.8.3. I think utorrent has overdeveloped: it has outgrown its micro ways and should now be called MacroTorrent, or soon maybe even MegaTorrent or GigaTorent. Way too full of excess complication. All these bugs are just a symptom of a systemic, systematic problem. The problem is too much - of everything: RSS gee-gaws & doo-dads, fancy UDP tracking & data-transfer (lots o' bugs in dat one, for sure), etc. There's even names for it: Featuritis and Code Bloat come to mind in particular. For its size, utorrent is probably buggier and more corrupt than any M$ software, which is a sad statement in and of itself. Of course, utorrent is not alone: modern software is more bloated and corrupt than ever before, outdoing the disasters of yesteryear with yet more extravagant displays of failure, generating endless queues of data-loss victims, not to mention paged-pool overflows spilling into kernel space. My recommendation is to permanently halt all development and excise the infected branches off the code tree, starting with the cancerous 1.8.4 edition. A little bit o' digital Bonsai so to speak. Progress is a myth and regress of baseline function is the reality after excess development.
