When playing content (eg an album of audio files) from a window with a list of torrents (when you press Play), played only the first file. That is, played only a single media file, while more logical to play the entire file list. (Sorry for bad english).

So it should be or is this a bug?

Thank goodness for the 2.04 .btskin! Checking or unchecking Use fine grained file priorities while downloading files seems to temporarily hang. Logger confirms.

.. I can't believe I had to set up my columns again btw .. I would have thought you worked a way around this by now .. like having variable names within the settings file so it's still parsable by future versions for example, off the top of my head.

Otherwise, everything's looking great (now that I disabled all that btapp stuff and hid it ;))

Looks smooth to me and I have all global rate limit options unchecked, for what that's worth. Not seeing that spiking whatsoever with my usual slow-poke torrents, so I grabbed the slackware and oo test torrents and now i'm just seeing disk overloaded issues, soooooo that's just great.

Edit: Seems to have cleared up after a couple of hangs.. Gotta say, the number of hangs I'm seeing in the Logger is a bit excessive for something purported to be a release candidate.

Guys, utorrent is a good app. But i have just intalled the RC and I was surprised to see this ugly icon in my taskbar (program and taskbar icons only). Are you really keeping this icon ? I think you can do better than that, it is even not a true icon. Also in Windows 7 explorer, change the view setting... :( Please get us a nice icon. Design in also important!

Does anyone here cares at all that the Path MTU discovery will work reasonably correct on this version ?


For it to work properly, you should:

- set the starting / largest packet size to ~1500 as was before

- change the size to find & fit the exact path MTU and not in +-300 bytes steps

- set the DF flag as intended and/or at lease NOT split packets any more AFTER finding the path MTU

- find the local MTU (PC, gateway-router) and take it into consideration

Just reproduce my test for that !

How hard can that be ?!
