password protected boss-key feature not working perfectly

When i press boss-key it only minimize to the tray and doesn't hide

The boss key feature has some bugs that haven't been fixed yet, I believe.

Is there a reason why the bugfix about DLL exploit is missing? (fixed in 2.2 & 2.0.4)

It was fixed, just wasn't mentioned in the changelog. :P

- Feature: show file dialog when loading magnet links

I'm not a beta tester but to people testing 3.0, can you tell me if there is a special icon (like a clock e.g) when µT is downloading the metadata? (General & Pieces tabs are empty during this step)

Is there any chance of fixing window size bug? :)

And the flashing infinite ETA for the active torrent over the seeding ratio? :P

OK, another odd one, a torrent finished downloading, but instead of moving the file to the 'Downloads' folder, uTorrent then renamed the file in the files section to the name of the downloads folder, so instead of being 'TV Show 2x19.mkv', the file composition of the torrent simply contained 'Downloads', as a folder. Because the file name of the show it had just finished downloading was not 'Downloads', but 'TV Show 2x19.mkv' it promptly broke and asked for a recheck. This proved to be impossible however, as it now only looked for folders and not files. Manually relocating the download to the fully downloaded file worked, and the file checked through OK, but when asked to start again in order to upload, the file changed name again to 'Downloads' and promptly broke again.

Manually moving the file to the 'Downloads' folder and starting again from there instead seemed to do the trick, and the expected file stayed correct, so the problem probably lies once again in the file move on completion process.

@Firon: I think acmodeu is referring to the bug where uTorrent doesn't remember the Window Size upon start-up.

Like if you have it full-screen, and exit.

When you start it up again, it is resized to a smaller window size.

Been this way for the past not too sure how many Alpha Releases already, and another user continues to bring it up upon each release.

Is this expected behavior?

jumbledtextgeneral.th.jpg

jumbledtextspeed.th.jpg

Jumbled text on General and Speed tabs, can anyone replicate this behavior?

Also the speed guide test only seems to work for Paris server for me, rest all seem to give that "Data send error:bla bla bla, (10053)

Even when it works on Paris server it gives low speed results almost 75% lower, it is a prob at my end? or just that that test servers are messed up themselves, 'coz my torrent speeds are normal.

Also when minimized CPU usage is 0% when active on screen display its about 3% most of the time,

But Another thing i noticed was how "Loud" the UI is turnign out at some places, most of all i absolutely hate the current "Pause (||)" yellow or whatever color they are, anywhere i look at the corner of my eye i see a vertical chain of | |

not pleasing on the eye, its like those eye hurting yellow websites.

Yes, that's expected behavior. A fix isn't simple, and you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who actually runs µTorrent that way.

The test servers are notoriously bad. Use the DSLReports speed tests if you're having trouble (users in the US can also use SpeedTest.net).

You're free to change the skin.

Edit: Constant CPU usage on idle seems to be related to the Windows theme. Using Windows 7 and Windows 7 Basic, you'll notice this behavior (slightly lower CPU usage with the basic version), but with Windows Classic, the problem goes away. I do agree that it should be looked into.

3.0 seems to have high CPU usage in general. We do need to fix the problem. It is specific to trunk; 2.2 does not have this problem.

I upgraded from 2.2 (latest) to 3.0 (latest) today. It's swinging back and forth between 23% and 72% CPU

Tested 3.0.0.21734 alpha. Initial observations:

* Bug: As mentioned above, very high CPU usage.

* Bug: Minify/'maxify' interface buttons sometimes move the window's titlebar off-screen.

* Bug: Very slow scrolling in the Add New Torrent dialog

* Bug: Root element and * key functionality still missing from the Add New Torrent dialog

I can confirm parts one and two of this. However the CPU usage issue seems to be intermittent.

I have been having a lot of fun recovering uTorrent from off my screen.

@Ultima - He deserves Kudos for trying :P

EDIT:: 1000th post in thread /flex

Regarding the titlebar moving off-screen, I'd complained pretty extensively to Firon about the minify button somewhere last month...

[00:08:58] <&Ultima> oh, and uh, that toolbar button for minifying the UI? yeah... having µTorrent center around it is an interesting idea, but in practice, it makes it rather easy to lose the titlebar off the top of the screen

[00:10:10] <&Ultima> there's hardly any reason to have the entire UI reposition itself so that the mouse remains on that button

[00:10:25] <&Ultima> I mean, it's not like people will be toggling between mini and full UI that often/quickly

[00:10:34] <&Ultima> or is that seriously a use-case scenario?

[00:16:05] <&Ultima> just to note, losing the titlebar isn't really a problem with centering around the mouse in and of itself -- it's a problem with the fact that µTorrent doesn't actually match the button position exactly after the UI mode is toggled

[00:22:10] <&Ultima> if you don't want to lose the titlebar, but want to keep the recentering, then at least do it properly :\ if the user clicks position (X,Y) relative to the top-left corner of the button, then when you recenter the UI after click, make sure the button's top-left corner is (-X,-Y) away from the mouse position. currently, it seems to recenter by centering the button at some position (-A,-B) from the mouse, where A and B are fixed (so it keeps sliding around every time you click anywhere but point (A,B) on the button)

[00:22:15] <&Ultima> if there's some technical limitation preventing it, just don't do the half-way "solution" at all D;

[00:23:15] <&Ultima> er, centering isn't the right word, but you get it

[01:10:27] <&Ultima> I'm pretty sure it's been a problem ever since the recentering thing was first implemented, but I never bothered to test it seriously

[01:13:24] <&Ultima> even given my proposed "fix" above, there's no perfect way to prevent the window from going off screen because of the differences between minified and full UI (namely, the menubar being present in full mode, but not in minified mode)

[01:14:20] <&Ultima> you can prevent it by just clamping, but then the window is no longer centered properly with the button around the mouse

[01:15:53] <&Ultima> and this is exactly why I think centering the UI around the button when it's clicked is a bad idea (aside from the fact that, as mentioned above, this seems to have an extremely unlikely use-case scenario to begin with)

[01:17:14] <&Ultima> I'm betting the button was placed to the right of the search bar in order to minimize the differences between the full and minified UI so that the recentering doesn't look as jarring

[01:17:58] <&Ultima> which is a very silly compensation for a pointless feature. I've never seen the search bar be to the left of any other button in any application that implements a similar search bar

[01:20:01] * &Ultima pokes Firon

[01:20:16] <&Ultima> I'm hoping you don't tl;dr this stuff :P

[01:20:45] <schnurlos> about the centering of windows: I'm no programmer, but isn't the window size and position known and checkable? If utorrent checks it before it's drawn, why not move it to be inside the screen?

[01:21:35] <&Ultima> it is easily possible, but as I've mentioned, if it has to clamp the position, then the window/button would no longer be centered around the mouse, which would defeat the whole purpose of centering

I do believe someone else reported this problem not too long after recentering was first introduced too. I say it should just be removed, because honestly, I can't imagine anyone needing a way to quickly toggle between the mini and full UIs. Not that Windows Media Player is some kind of model application, but when you toggle between its player and library view, for example, it doesn't bother recentering the UI around the mouse either. It just lets the mouse fall outside the window bounds on switch, which feels perfectly fine to me, so I don't see why it shouldn't be fine for µTorrent too.

Edit: Yep, icleolion got to the report first.
