  2. I have been using 3.x.x for quite awhile. I have tried both beta and stable builds. I have not had any problems with crashing in the 3.2.x stable series or the current 3.3.x stable series. There were many bugs and crashes with the 3.0.x and 3.1.x builds but the quality has improved a whole lot since then. I have also encountered bugs and crashes with beta builds (enough so that I haven't even tried alpha builds). However, the 3.2.x and 3.3.x stable series are both rock-solid and don't crash or have many bugs, at least not in my personal experience. I have run them on several different computers and used them with a bunch of different torrents, and I think the latest stable builds of uTorrent are quite good. Also, as someone else already mentioned, qBittorrent DOES have that import torrent functionality. And I'm pretty sure both the uTorrent bugs you mentioned (crashing on large downloads and the disk overload problem) have been fixed, at least in the 3.3.x stable series. So basically, pretty much everything you said in that post is wrong and based on outdated info, it would have been correct if you posted it back when version 3.0.x or 3.1.x was the latest, but your info is way out of date now, sorry.
  3. I'd just like to know, what is the deal with trackers that demand you use an older version of uTorrent and reject people using the latest version of uTorrent? I think users should be able to use whatever torrent client they want, and whatever version of it they want, and not be discriminated against by trackers. Some of these private trackers have very long and bizarre lists of rules, with their lists of supported clients (they use whitelists, not blacklists) not making much logical sense at all. And each one has a different list of supported clients. So if you want a bittorrent client that works with all of the private trackers out there, too bad, there isn't ANY client that is on all of their whitelists. This also discriminates against users of less-well-known torrent clients, such as the many open-source torrent clients out there, many of which are not well-known enough or too new to be added to the whitelists (for instance Tixati is on hardly any whitelists yet, although most of them do include Deluge, qBittorrent, and Transmission, along with older versions of uTorrent and a couple other clients). I don't see any legitimate reason people should have to use an older, outdated version of a program, especially since older versions might have unpatched security flaws. I guess the newer versions of uTorrent have so many features allowing users to manage their upload and download speeds, maybe the private trackers don't want anyone with those features because they are worried someone might set their upload speed to something slow. But this is not a legitimate reason to block newer versions of uTorrent, those trackers have many other ways they can prevent leeching and monitor people's upload:download ratio. If people want to use an older version out of personal preference, this is OK, but it should not be forced on people by bittorrent trackers.
  4. It's very easy to decline the offers in the installer. Then none of them get installed, only uTorrent gets installed. Lots of freeware programs (even many open-source GNU GPL ones) have other stuff "bundled" as "offers" that you have to turn down in the installers, I am VERY much used to it, uTorrent is just one of MANY programs that does this. Unfortunately, people who don't know what they're doing (like my parents in their 60s) tend to accept all the offers in installers out of a bad habit of just clicking "Yes" on everything without reading it. So, don't be like my parents, don't click "Yes" on everything without reading it, actually read the things in the installer before you decide what to click on, then you'll be fine.

    Flags|US|US ________________________________________________________________________|PK Also a bug: if the hostname is exactly equal to one of the domain names in the list, without any subdomain, it shows a ? flag instead of the correct flag. I have this happen in version 3.3.2 build 30180, with one of the .com addresses in the list.

    Thank you! :cool: This is what I've found since your last update:|CA|JO ________________________________________________________________________|US Also, just in case you ever allow .org addresses, here's a .org one for an ISP in Utah (in case nobody else has requested this feature already, I'd like to feature-request that uTorrent treats .org addresses the same as .com and .net when it come to flags, so that we can put .org addresses such as the one below in flags.conf):|US

    Please put more information into the first post of this thread about flags.test.conf and its accompanying .bmp file options (flags.test.bmp and flags.test.famfamfam.bmp). Right now the first post tells people to use the old flags.conf and flags.bmp from several months ago that have not been updated. (I realize the Readme file linked to in the first post contains this information, but the first post itself doesn't contain this information.) Also, the following flags need to be updated: Belarus (.BY) - changed its flag a little bit on February 10, 2012 to make it look prettier Libya (.LY) - changed its flag on August 3, 2011 when Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown Burma/Myanmar (.MM) - changed its flag on October 21, 2010 as part of gradual transition from military junta to democracy Additionally, three new countries need to be added to the ccTLD list with their flags: Curaçao (.CW) - gained independence from the Netherlands on October 10, 2010 South Sudan (.SS) - gained independence from Sudan on July 9, 2011 Sint Maarten (.SX) - gained independence from the Netherlands on October 10, 2010 Possible error in your list: is listed twice, once for Canada and once for US. This ISP actually serves customers in both countries, but they have more US customers than Canadian customers, so it would probably be best to list them as US and not Canadian (since it can only show one flag after all). Now for my contributions to the list:|BD|CA|NL|CA ________________________________________________________________________|US|US|US
