µTorrent 1.4 released.

Recommended Posts

I's impossible to download when upload capped over 3k with 256/64 ADSL.

64kbps * 0.8 = 51.2kbps (subtracting 20% for overhead and line noise)

51.2kbps / 8 = 6.4kBps (eight bits in a byte)

Twenty percent is quite generous for overhead. Sixty two point five percent is being a leeching jackass. I got better than 3kBps upload on dialup. If you have enough line noise that you lose half of your signal to line noise then you need to go outside and get to running new lines or bitching daily to your telco if it's on their line.

And the download cap is being raised to 6*, so it shouldn't be that much of a problem for most of you slow ADSL users.

It's pretty enough (I expected 5*), I'm very pleased to hear that. Thank you very much.

Sorry if this is answered already, but i'm a little confused.

Could anyone tell me (like to a stupid :)) what is this download limit everyone talking about, when/why is it triggered, and do i get some feedback somewhere in µTorrent , that it is on/triggered.

Thanks in advance.

if your UL limit is set <= 5 you DL will be UL*3 (will change to *6 later).

You can see a warning on the bottom status bar

Well this thread turned into a bit of a bitch fest. Roll on the new release so the "Access Denied" bug is gone xD

why doesn't anyone announce about the realeased betas?

I believe non-official betas (that are not in the DL page) are not being announced. They ARE listed in the welcome heading on the IRC channel. But just for you - here is the latest:

http://utorrent.com/download/beta/utorrent-1.4.1-beta-build-404.exe

Change-log:

http://utorrent.com/download/beta/utorrent-1.4.1-beta-build-404.txt

+ Enhanced Favorite tab-logic in the RSS dialog

Have fun!

Both your Upload and Download stop. Are you on a Router? If so maybe you have too many open connections and your router is crashing.

Awwwwww! I though Firon said they had addressed the "Error: Access Denied" bug. I am still getting it, so it isn't fixed. That should be priority. Please fix it so i can start using RSS :(

To be honest i don't give two shits about this capping business anymore. I use private trackers. I ain't bumming non of this public shite, so.. In an ideal world everyone would share. But you raving on isn't going to change anything. I don't know what you hope to achieve by your dossiers. uT has caps some people don't care some do. But those who don't will change. So we havn't really solved anything. If we want a large userbase this isn't the way forward.

I'm sticking, this capping doesn't effect me. But I do agree with some points here.
