µTorrent 1.3.2-beta build 401

Recommended Posts

µTorrent 1.3.2-beta build 401 is out, please download and test it.

RSS is the biggest addition, test it out!

New speed configuration wizard!

Your ulrate and dlrate menus may get reset when you upgrade to 390+ and restart the client afterwards, it's not a bug

Multi-scrape automatically detects if a tracker does not support it and will fall back to single scrape mode for that tracker, so there's no need to turn it off.

You no longer have to manually set a diskio.write_queue_size, it will work perfectly in automatic mode (-1), even at 100mbit speeds.

Partfile bugs should be fixed now. Pre-allocate finally works with selective file downloading (with the partfile of course).

V 1.3.1 Beta:

Bug #1: RSS "new filter" seems not to be editable on Win98... and stays always as "new filter" text . Critical bug...

Q #1 : were can you set the update delay time ? we need this for testing, so at least - put it in the advanced setup

Q #2 : shouldn't "update" button be available also for the history tab ? may be just put it at the bottom - near the timer ?

Q #3 : should it be logging the results in the log tab as well ?

(post it here...)

ssjkakaroto: it doesn't report it, upload it somewhere and link to it here, with information about your settings, software, and so on.

rafi:

You sure you're doing it right? Select it, and SINGLE click. Or when you hit add, it should show up as editable already... could be a bug, though.

1) nowhere, it's hardcoded to 30 minutes until cache control is implemented. (default fallback will probably still be 30)

2) Why? Update is to manually update the feeds, there's no reason to have it on History, just Releases, the only one it matters for.

3) Nope, just check the history to see if it successfully got the torrent. :P perhaps it should show more details somewhere though.

I've been playing with the RSS feed for a while now. The basic functionality is working fine. I've been able to add public trackers and use the criterion in my favorites to download what i want so no bugs for me with that basic setup.

I do have some comments though. I've been using TVTAD for the past few weeks and in comparison, there are two features that I think should be added:

(1) Ability to use private trackers - TVTAD allows you to do this using the :COOKIE: field along with uid and pass info

(2) Ability to enable/disable individual feeds - I saw you can check/uncheck certain favorites but adding a check box to the feeds would be very helpful too.

All in all, I'm really happy this feature is included now.

Um, there's a checkbox next to each feed. And a drop down box in Releases to select what feed you wanna see releases of.

A couple of things I have seen with the boss key:

1- If you have uTorrent minimised to the system try and press your boss key, it brings it up (maximises) instead of removing it from the tray.

2- If you have the options menu open when you try the boss key, the main window and the tray icon dissapears but the options menu remains.

edit: Did everyone get the Merry Christmas message? lol

Anyone managed to download something from BitMeTV's RSS?

I double click a file and nothing happens, I see it in the History, but no download starts.

[Win98]

Edit feeds/filter name bug:

You sure you're doing it right? Select it, and SINGLE click. Or when you hit add, it should show up as editable already... could be a bug, though.

I probably should have explained better, but I thought is was obvious and common to all platforms..

1- I click once on the text

2- I change it inside the line

3- I press enter

4- the previous text "returns" like nothing was done

Notes:

- Same thing happens in feeds tab

- When you move a torrent from favorites - it IS being moved with the correct text (still can't change it...)

- In feeds tab - I CAN put any text using the "add" dialog

I guess it is a Win98 related bug, so - if there is any other WIN98 user around - please try it and let us know!

...

1) nowhere, it's hardcoded to 30 minutes until cache control is implemented. (default fallback will probably still be 30)

2) Why? Update is to manually update the feeds, there's no reason to have it on History, just Releases, the only one it matters for.

3) Nope, just check the history to see if it successfully got the torrent. :P perhaps it should show more details somewhere though.

to (1) - I see. Still - I suggest to be able to change it in a later version, and limit it to a minimum of, ~ 5 min. so not to hammer the trackers

to (2,3) - well, I was thinking of "history" as "log/status" that should display (optionally, per user selection) info like:

- Errors (e.e. feed's URL related - wrong URL address, off-line/timeout)

- status per-update (total #nn torrents found on all feeds)

- more status per feed (feed's name, #nn torrents retrieved)

- actual download (like now)

This way the user has more feedback to what his problem is. SO if the user whats to see the log - he will not have to move between tabs - if you just put the update button near the timer/close.

OK, now that I hope this is clear, my notes on some other things [F- feature, B - bug]:

1. feed name - allow spaces between the name and the URL (e.e. "name | http://...") so the list will look nicer in the tab [F]

2. when using multi-select in favorites - delete all the selected items not just the first one [b/F]

3. allow multi-select in feeds tab for delete [F]

4. change releases->right-click 'open' to 'download' [F]

5. mark the right-bottom RSS dialog with those strips (like uT dialog) to show that it is resize-able [F]

6. save RSS dialog's last size & position for next activation

7. user option: to notify when a new episode was found during RSS scans - by either a pop up dialog, or - like TVTAD - a balloon pop-up near the tool-tip [F]

8. user option: select the action desired - notify , download or both [F]

9. add to the releases list a status flag (again, see TVTAD, TVCR) to show DLed items, new items (say - from last scan, or last XX hours) [F]

10. user option: since the RSS required interactive user action/viewing let him chose between model and non-modal RSS dialog [F]

11. full logging, history/errors/DLs (see above)

12. multi select in history - with cut&paste, so logs could be copied to the forum [F]

13. in Favorites->save-in always show a path starting with the default torrent location/path [F]

14. reposition update button (see above) [F]

15. make the first RSS scan - when uT is started, and not (like it seems to me ) 30 min. after startup...

Non RSS related:

100. !ut extension - since I was alway for it - thanks! I just suggest to follow BC example and make it - "ut!" :P

or better yet - user definable... so that uT can easily continue/finish other clients' downloads

Thanks for listening... :)

thanks. Do it also for the RSS feeds' strings.

BTW - shouldn't you "warn" users who upgrade to this beta - that they might "loose" all on-going downloads and should rename them to .ut! ?

Uh, you won't lose any on-going downloads. And !ut is off by default. Even if it was turned on now, it just renames all the incomplete files with a !ut extension, even for stopped torrents. Nothing gets lost.

Rather than user definable, how about just detecting other clients' extensions and renaming them? (For maximum compatibility they should probably be renamed to have no extension...)

Well, users like first to try out a new client, so I don't like this idea. But - you CAN probably give an option to do so, that will default to disabled.

If you have "put new downloads in [default is to ask]" checked in folder options, then you wont see the bitcomet style dialog (which I think is wrong, but I got shot down in IRC).

So disable that in folder options and the dialog should pop up.

About the RSS reader: You should add "HR-HDTV" as a quality, it shows up on a lot of torrent sites.

Also, adding cookie support, so private feeds will work, will also be welcome.
