I also got banned on a significant tracker for asking why 1.7 was banned.

Now is the hour for all men of sound and virtuous character to foreswear ever again creating a torrent without DHT enabled, or patronizing the "middlemen" of narcissistic, misanthropic hosting sites. (Bittorrent is a technology to foster file-sharing; which is why it's just mind-boggling how some contort themselves to not share their torrents.)

Just changed back to 1.7.1 from 1.6.1. Previously had 1.7.1.

Logging message reports something like "integrity check failed changing back from v1.6.1" when re-starting the torrent with v1.7.1.

Another logging message says that this error/warning can be ignored.

Any comment ?

Also here in the Netherlands 1.7.1 is banned at several private trackers.

"New story now is that Utorrent has been solled to Bram Cohen (ex p2p guy) who is now working for MPAA. MPAA is working together with Dutch 'Brein'. There are also rootkits and spyware etc included in the new version".

What's the truth about the above story?

It has been answered various times already. The tracker admins have not done their research, and are sheepishly following other tracker administrators in banning for no reason. µTorrent does not spy on its users, period.

Direct the administrators to these 2 posts:

The biggest changes were full Vista support and the removal of the 65,536 piece limit for torrents.

I know absolutely nothing about how you guys went about building this amazing client, but the number 65,536 is also the maximum amount of rows in Excel (not including Office 2007 which carries 1 million). Does that number have any bearing?

And loving the new version by the way. Thank you.

@Dutchman:

"New story now is that Utorrent has been solled to Bram Cohen (ex p2p guy) who is now working for MPAA. MPAA is working together with Dutch 'Brein'. There are also rootkits and spyware etc included in the new version".

Anyone else not bringing up that 'solled' is incorrectly spelled? 'Sold' so if it is 'real' don't you think it would at least be spellchecked?

Anyway... On my 3 private trackers uTorrent hasn't been banned...
