    µTorrent 3.4 RC

    No. Clicking them was also removing them' date=' and this was removed in the latest builds.[/quote'] That's not good. I don't see the point in having them. Add it to the help menu please or add a option in advance options to remove it. I always accidentally click on them when resizing my window. I'm downgrading back to 3.3... They need to be always visible as it's part of their money-making scheme. It's the cost of a "free" client.

    µTorrent 3.4 RC

    Somebody noted earlier hat there hasn't truly been a single stable version in the v3-branch, and I tend to agree with that sentiment.

    µTorrent 3.4 RC

    Thanks - I just accepted a patch for that a few hours ago. That fix will be out today. Still doesn't work in build 30444 [del]Looks okay on my end.[/del] Scratch that. Still fubar. Going back to a stable beta.

    µTorrent 3.4 RC

    You have to agree it may be okay not to stay with the latest beta, when said beta is in far worse shape than the previous ones. That¨s the case with this RC.

    µTorrent 3.4 RC

    That may well be, however releasing something as RC2 in the state it was, should grant some leeway. Whoever ran that build and didn't test it themselves clearly had to be under the influence of something.

    µTorrent 3.4 RC

    I can confirm this. I went from 3.4.30345 to .30429 figuring that a RC should be more stable than what I was running. Hah!The displayed entries seems to fluctuate regardless of the view chosen, even the top-level view which should include all torrents and all states changes every second or so, hiding or displaying entries at random. Where can I re-download the latest beta that works? Somebody stick it on dropbox or some such, please.
  8. No torrent info is shown in the files' date=' info, peers, trackers, etc. tabs!!![/quote'] +1 +1 No detailed info, or, the wrong info shown, the latter being few and far between.
  9. With Pref->advanced->bt.graceful_shutdown=false I get ~15 sec for uT to fully exit (3 seeding jobs/1 download job' date=' ~300 connections). How long is it for you ? The only issue I can see here is somewhat "heavy"/frozen behavior of the GUI for a few seconds after an exit command.[/quote'] Hi cfw, We know that it sometimes shuts down very slowly, and we're still looking into this. Does it seem to happen more often if you delete a torrent soon before shutting down? Thanks for your patience. Hi Adam, Well, no, I usually add several magnets (all in the stopped state, since that has proven to be better in cases where things freeze up) and start them all and let them run a good while before I attempt a shutdown. The only changes that have occurred with the queue is where some transfers has completed and changed to seeding. I'm a tad curious what if any changes you have made to the shutdown routines between 3.3 and 3.3.1, or maybe I'm just confused and 3.3 doesn't use a graceful exit and that's why it is lightning fast by comparison. Thanks for taking the time to respond.
  10. With Pref->advanced->bt.graceful_shutdown=false I get ~15 sec for uT to fully exit (3 seeding jobs/1 download job' date=' ~300 connections). How long is it for you ? The only issue I can see here is somewhat "heavy"/frozen behavior of the GUI for a few seconds after an exit command.[/quote'] On my system an ungraceful shutdown takes 35 secs (28 downloads, 3 seeds, 48 added but stopped, ~300 connections). So that worked, but still, with 3.3 a graceful shutdown takes ~3 secs, so there's something going on here. The graceful shutdown in the current 3.3.1 builds kill the GUI rather smooth, but the process itself is stuck in the shutdown loop. Just now as I was testing this I left it trying to shutdown and didn't kill it til 5 hours had passed.
  11. Has the issue with exiting the application been addressed in this new build?
  12. Is this really in the RC? I can't seem to find either of these?!
  13. Using v3.3 beta build 28582 I've noticed something odd while adding several downloads and displaying the add new torrent dialog box for each. I usually queue like 20 in quick succession, then hit OK as I check the content of each. µtoorrent will start to download 4, maybe 5, the rest will have stopped at what I believe is the stage where the meta-data is accessed;Their status will say "Checked". I have attempted to force start them, but nothing helps. What works is to restart µtorrent. Those that were listed as checked will have stopped, and then it is a simple matter of restarting them. Other than this it seems to run really well.
