Known Issues (@Build 27568) :

Fixed/To be fixed:

(-1 To be fixed Later: crash when running "setup-guide"->speed-test twice [96,will be fixed in the next stable release])

(-7 To be fixed Later: The Upload limiter breaks down when set to *include* overhead, and the download-induced-overhead exceeds the set limit [116, will be fixed in the next stable release] )

Not fixed:

-- 2012-07-04: Version 3.2 Release (build 27568)

-4 Not Fixed: auto-downloading tracker-less magnets from RSS will not auto-enable DHT, and will never download [114]

-6 Not Fixed: uTP delay graph is broken (in the negative territory, and huge delay value on the Y axis ... ) [92]

-8 Not Fixed: Issues with "Add magnet" dialog:

--b"Add to top of queue" checkbox - not working (seems always set to #1 in the q) [131/133]

--d Sometimes a queue # is being displayed after a very long time.

--e For a multiple file torrent it does not use the subfolder "name" at all , thus - the result is a wrong target root-subfolder name. [134, confirmed only in 3.2.1]

-9 Not Fixed: A status of a seeding torrent - is not being updated when "Initial seeding" is being checked/unchecked during seeding time [124]

-15 Not Fixed: Labels edited/changed via the RSS downloader dialog - are being lost in the system and are not visible in the main view->labels column. Also, editing an existing label is not being globally modified. Plus, if only one file is labeled - "x" , removing (unchecking) that label from this file render it - lost forever... [127]

-16 Not Fixed: Poor PartFile processing causes performance issues (Disk IO, Speed) at high speeds. [118]

-18 Not Fixed: Waiting magnets are not being noticed as active in "exit or standby after DL complete". [135]

-20 Not Fixed: For magnets - a newly added "always stop" behavior after metadata arrives makes it impossible to auto-download magnets manually or from RSS w/o "babysitting" them and pressing start when they are done with the metadata... http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?pid=671634#p671634 [114]

-21 When running utorrent.exe (w/o a local copy of settings.dat) from a path that is not on drive c: - utorrent always activate the installer dialogs even if the settings files are already installed (located) in %appdata%\utorrent [136]

What was the reason to split "Save in" field in "Add new torrent" dialog to "Save in" and "Name"? I thought at first that "Name" means "Name of torrent"...

It's really annoying that you change the order of fields in dialogs. In v2, to get to "Label" field you had to press Tab 4 times. In 3.1 - Shift-Tab 2 times. Now - Tab 6 times. Remember that some users prefer to use keyboard, not mouse!

Major "Save In" folder/path bug.


say I download a torrent named "nameone".

utorrent will suggest I download it to folder "C:\Users\Admin\Downloads\torrents\"

say I download a torrent named "nametwo", shortly AFTER I decided to download the first one.

This time utorrent will suggest I download it to folder "C:\Users\Admin\Downloads\torrents\nameone"

and it gets progressively worse.

next torrent will be downloaded into:

"C:\Users\Admin\Downloads\torrents\nameone\nametwo"... etc

Let's assume that we have completed torrent named "Torrent1" in C:\Torrent1. We stop it (status changes to Finished), then rename C:\Torrent1 to C:\Torrent2, then rename torrent from "Torrent1" to "Torrent3", then try to start it again. Its status changes to "Moving..." and that's all.

Question: Is Share getting folded back into the main releases for 3.2, or will that be later/Plus only?

This bug still - I get the following on each program start (note I added the [%AppData%] myself to shorten the lines):

[2012-03-10 10:27:41] File not found during integrity check: [%AppData%]\uTorrent\resume.dat

[2012-03-10 10:27:41] File not found during integrity check: [%AppData%]\uTorrent\resume.dat.new

[2012-03-10 10:27:41] File not found during integrity check: [%AppData%]\uTorrent\resume.dat.old

This happens even though resume.enable_resume_dir = *true, and more importantly resume.dir_only = *true.

Also, the "V8 Bundle" messages are back? Hadn't received them for awhile since 3.1 beta...

And how is "Name" a welcome addition to the Add Torrent dialog? If someone can't figure out that the filename goes at the end of the filepath, then honestly...

Sorry my bug report wasn't precise. Status changes to "Moving..." after we change download location to C:\Torrent2 (download location hasn't been actually changed at that - on Info tab we're seeing old location). After pressing Start status changes to "Invalid".

I should add that then I have tried to stop the torrent, renamed torrent to "Torrent2" and changed its location to C:\Torrent2. Its status remained "Moving..." - I was forced to restart uT to change it. After I did that I discovered that torrent's content was finally moved to C:\Torrents3. But anyway, why its status was "Moving..." for so long? The old and new folders are both on the same logical drive.

nobody? plz if there's anything to fix this then tell me.

Yes, there is. Start downloading and the files will show up in a few seconds. Then select what you like.

I guess the devs are trying to improve on that ...

Yay , it worked :D . but if the torrent started i can't select a specific thing , it will download the whole torrent

or is there a way to select things while you're already downloading?
