    µTorrent WebUI

    No. WebUI uses basic HTTP authentication, which is in the browser's control. If your browser is asking you to login every time you restart, then that's a browser issue.

    µTorrent WebUI

    Yes, drag-and-drop of URLs, and it certainly still works for me in Chrome and Firefox. Easily testable by dragging and dropping a link into the WebUI window and noting that a torrent job is added to the list.

    Not from this UI, no, not currently.

    µTorrent MiniUI

    No, it actually wasn't ever released under an open-source license. Really nothing's technically stopping anyone from de-minimizing the code, but in an ideal world, I would actually open-source the thing. Maybe one day, when I've found a bit of time to clean stuff up. Still I'd imagine someone out there could probably whip up a better interface than I did, and in a shorter amount of time given the availability of quality JS frameworks available...

    WebUI simply passes the variable along to the backend. If you refresh WebUI and still see the %K there, and yet it's not working, then it's a a backend issue (i.e. a problem with utserver).

    What is "the utorrent folder" you're referring to? The .exe directory, or the settings.dat directory?

    BEncode Editor

    Please read the posts immediately following the one you quoted. If you're still having problems with numbers, then you're suffering from a separate problem than was described in that instance. You're going to have to provide more information than "I see the same problem" (i.e. tell me how to replicate the problem).

    Nope, no way to prevent subfolder creation -- at least as far as I know. Which leads to my response to your first query... "as far as I know" is why the docs have languished. When I wrote up the original documentation, I essentially had to "reverse engineer" the entire thing by looking at WebUI's requests to the backend because no canonical/official documentation was ever provided by µTorrent developers. That hasn't since changed (still no official documentation coming from devs); what has changed is the amount of time/energy I am personally able to spend on coaxing information out of the devs. What specifically are you looking for in terms of updates? New fields in list=1?

    No worries, didn't take your post as a complaint. My primary reason for citing that old post was for the last part of it actually The behavior is perfectly consistent and predictable that way. The rest of the quote was included for color, in case anyone cared to know why it's broken. Quite disappointed that nothing's changed on that front in nearly 3 years now, but I guess that's because there's no one constantly prodding the devs about the design flaw. I'm still not convinced this is something that should be fixed UI-side given that any changes backend-side (assuming the API design is otherwise left as-is) would again break any UI-side fix I do implement.

    Yep, that RSS funkiness was documented on the release post:

    BEncode Editor

    http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?pid=289826#p289826 Please don't stop reading a discussion mid-way without first checking on the resolution. Especially when the resolution came only a few posts after the very post you quoted. BEncode Editor is to BEncoded files what Notepad is to text files. Just because Notepad can edit .html files doesn't mean it should have to understand web browsers' interpretations the files. Similarly, just because BEncode Editor can edit resume.dat doesn't mean it should have to understand µTorrent's interpretation of the file. µTorrent failing the file because it failed the hash check doesn't necessarily mean the file was invalidly BEncoded. It just means there are extra validations that µTorrent applies on the data that BEncode Editor doesn't care to do (because it's outside the narrower scope of BEncoding). [h]Final Warning[/h] This utility is for advanced users. Read the warnings in the USES section, and read them again until you understand well what you're getting yourself into by using this editor. Its relatively intuitive UI can beguile most uninitiated/beginning users, as it has an inherent ability to invalidate many files through wrong and incorrect edits. BEncode Editor has facilities to allow you to regenerate the .fileguard hash correctly, but it won't hand-hold you through it. If you would rather not just remove the item, then you can hash the top-level dictionary after removing the .fileguard hash from the file using the Item menu, then re-add the .fileguard hash wherever it once was, but set the value to the hash that BEncode Editor calculated.

    Fixed some low-hanging fruits. It's been over a year, but that's all I've got right now (busy with Real Life™). Anyway... First post, as usual!

  15. http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?pid=586888#p586888 Broken API design, broken UI. I can't imagine it being more than a trivial bug to fix on the backend (API) side. If someone would bother to fix the backend by having it use simple bit twiddling, this would be work just fine without any work on the UI side, and it would continue to work even as new options get exposed.
