Threads a little long and with no thread search options (not that I could see) it makes it hard to tell whether its been asked before..

Can anyone expand on

"Note to tracker staff: update your build checks! 1.8 is different from 1.7.7. The reserved bit is no longer set."

What do you mean reserved bit and where would it be located.?

TIA

L: is a local peer (or more than 1, read the manual for details)

Reserved bit is in the protocol, yea? http://bittorrent.org/beps/bep_0000.html I guess it's to alert them that spoofing clients won't update their peerid definitions (immediately)

The only reserved bits I'm aware of are in the peer handshake however it is my understanding that when a client talks to a tracker no such peer exchange occurs. All it is is a simple GET <> followed by a tracker response consisting of a bencoded reply.

If I'm incorrect and a peer handshake occurs between the tracker and client then I really want to know since I'm currently working on a project for work and the sooner the better. I didn't factor that into a prelim design I have. At least I haven't seen anything in the specs nor on the wire indicating a handshake with the tracker so that is where my confiusion is arising. I uderstand that some trackers may want to filter on peerID to stop malicious clients or broken ones but there aren't any reserved bits so to speak of in a peerID.

Oh I have no idea about that... I think it's how uTorrent internally detects fakes and many tracker(s software) includes some way of denying tracker access to certain peerid masks. DWK should be along shortly if it's that big a deal... ;)

Uhm, L: identifies it as a local peer, it doesn't limit you to a specific speed. Th(at/ose) peers are only giving you the speed... do you see the peer(s) marked "L" in the Flags column in the Peers tab? That's what you should be looking at.

Resource-wise, the only thing that changed was the icon. The old icon was created by Dekaritae, and can still be found on the skins page.

Maybe it's the column on the left which now goes all the way down? That can simply be changed to the old style in the Advanced settings by setting gui.tall_category_list to false. :P

You can relocate a file in this version. You can do a has recheck and when its done if you do a force start it will do a hash recheck AGAIN. Since its already just done it, why would you need to do a check yet again on it?

I'm surprised this thread is so peaceful. I upgraded to µT 1.8, I was like "WTF?" and switched to BitTyrant.

It was misbehaving rather heavily and still is. It managed to screw up both IE7 and Firefox when running (both had a chance on each page load to cancel with an error, not even waiting for a timeout)

Also, seeding torrents often just fails! I just switched back to µT (due to a totally different, nontheless weird bug in Tyrant) and saw it not uploading ANYTHING on torrents that obviously still can use some bandwith. Problem is, µT doesn't connect to the peers in the first place! The amount of client connections in µT has always been bad though.

So currently, I'm actually using µT to download and Tyrant to seed interchangingly. I would call this absurd, but I really don't know what I'm doing wrong.

Using WinXP Pro, port mapping works fine. No active antivirus or firewall apart from a D-Link Router with packet priority features (those shouldn't be the cause, as the problems also appear on low connection load). There are various programs using networking, including an SVN server, an IRC server etc. that all work perfectly and don't seem to cause trouble for one another.

Yep in addition instead of using Azureus and BitTyrant with horrible Java machine, try simple client Deluge during you try to fix uT.

Because chances are most of us didn't upgrade to 1.8 and never will voluntarily. ;).

From time to time my Utorrent ignores the max upload speed and goes to max speed allowed by my internet connection. If i put again the max speed (the same number or other) on the menu and apply it returns to the "limit".

uTorrent 1.8 build 11813

Windows Vista SP1 (x64)

In the image you can see (in spanish language) the limit put in 18KB/s and the upload (one 100% completed file) in 78.8KBs

This seems to happen when uTorrent is running some time not when i started it.
