µTorrent 1.8 released

Recommended Posts

so this is what i did just a few minutes ago:

one torrent is finished and downloaded to hdd. added second torrent hashcecked etc... the two torrent file has different filename but their names are the same (i think it comes from their main directory name) hash on the general tab is different. while checking, the torrent file was visible in appdata directory after the check is done the file is moved to the finished directory (Move .torrents for finished jobs to: option is enabled) overriding the previous torrent (both has the same file name in the finished directory). before the second torrent is added and after it is finished i checked the resume.dat and found only one entry to the torrent pointing to the torrent file in the finished directory both times.

well, maybe a disable/enable option for the whole RSS pane-display - might be good for some people. It WAS actually hidden in 1.7.7 ...

good idea - 1.7.7 category list view

My µTorrent 1.7 had the following line only in ipfilter.dat

91.189.104.1 91.189.111.254

(note there is one space between the two range limits) and it worked.

I cannot remember where I found this syntax, I believe I read it in FAQ.

Installed µTorrent 1.8 and suddenly those ip are not blocked anymore.

Re-read the FAQ to discover that the official syntax is

91.189.104.1-91.189.111.254

With this line µTorrent 1.8 blocking works again.

Does IPfilter.dat (when enabled) block only incoming connections or does it prevent an outgoing connection as well? - and syntax is supposed to be ...

91.189.104.1 - 91.189.111.254

91.189.143.1 - 91.189.143.254

.. is it not?

Sorry if I am a tad off topic, but this is relavent to the past couple of posts.

Thanks Ultima, I was wondering about that since I noticed outgoing blocks are not logged though, probably since the request was not made and there is nothing to block, makes sense. Also I was wondering if both "-" AND " - " were valid hyphen separators.

That Update Tracker bullshit is not an improvement at all. You should be able to click it whenever the fuck you want. Specially if you are only seeding and want to update the peers and watch how is it going on the tracker site at any time.

Stop "improving" what already works. Going back to 1.7 or finding another one.

... You weren't held enough as a child.

If the site wants to specify how often you SHOULD CONTACT IT, you have no right whatsoever to do it more often, especially since the methods/response is standardized and documented. That it can be done on any client is a result of internal/external team decisions. This team decided to respect tracker owner wishes.

longest sentence I've seen... it can help to understand you if you can put some punctuation marks when you put it in the other thread ... (u know, ., etc...) ;)
