Yup, this is 3.2.2

I'm also happy that the uTorrent team is coming out with constant bug fixes for new builds instead of adding useless new features (bloat) that nobody needs or uses. Shows that they are willing to listen to users feedback. :)

yeah' date=' but they don't remove already added bloat.[/quote']

Why do you care ? As long as you can disable or just not use whatever you don't like! Is there any specific "bloat" that you *must* use?

Yeah! Defend utorrent no matter how useless feautures start bloating the binary up!

I better have 200 more KB of binary that does nothing, than spend weeks trying to remove bugs introduced while removing those features... ;)

Is 3.2.2 still Ad-infected like 3.2.1? Did they remove all those useless ads that often gets d/l by accident? Should we stay at v3.2?

thanx

I'm somewhAT baffled by this fuss over ads, I've been running 3.x.x since it was released, currently on 3.2.2.28110 and have yet to see an advert appear anywhere, nearest I've got to an advert is a "take a survey" (which was about BitTorrent) link that appeared in the main window header.

added:

Even before I set sponsored_torrent_offer_enabled to false they weren't appearing.

after updating to 3.2.2 Beta 1 (build 28110), my utorrent crashes a few secs after launching

this is the crash dump file on mediafire

http://www.mediafire.com/?xtwe7o7lmbp8m7w

Same here, it doesn't corrupt my torrent list and download state fortunately, so downgrading to 3.2.1 was successful. I allowed windows to send the crash dump, hopefully it made it.

For those that have had crashes on startup, we've addressed those with the beta we just posted. Thanks for the patience and the dumps. Please let us know if you still see this issue.

Thanks for the patience

what, none of those promised fixes yet ?... We are not *that* patient... ;) --->

Hi Everyone,

Here are the issues we are moving to later versions of utorrent.

I need to speak with the other developers to see which fixes will go in which versions.

A lot of these are from Rafi's list:

ADD TORRENT DIALOG ISSUES

-- Change Add Torrent dialog layout to be more like Virtual_ManPL's suggestion http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?pid=684522#p684522

-- Expand the edit-lines,

-- be able to *not* use a sub-folder,

-- select if to use the "name" as a sub-folder or not etc.

MAGNET LINK ISSUES

-- "File not found during integrity check" messages

-- Add torrent Stopped / Started should apply to magnets

---b Added magnets are deleting existing files instead of re-checking them [#149]

---e "Copy Magnet URI" does not include the full trackers list in it

---a Auto-downloading tracker-less magnets from RSS will not auto-enable DHT, and will never download [#114]

---c Metadata retrieval time is long - ~2 min for new torrents (minimal seeds, but with uDP trackers) [#145]

---d Not able to skip files when added-stopped [#146]

Ability to skip 2nd AV dialog http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?pid=683830#p683830

-- Win 8 problem reported by yukycg http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?pid=681418#p681418

-2 Crash when running "setup-guide"->speed-test twice (Win 7) [* 96])

Layout problem with "add new torrent" dialog [beasly]

-5 Still issues with running utorrent.exe (w/o a local copy of settings.dat) from a path that is not on drive c: - utorrent activates the installer dialogs even if the settings files are already installed (located) in %appdata%\utorrent [* 136]

-8 No tooltips in the main view (for partially showing items, like in 2.2.1). It has gone missing . Long torrent/file names are requiring constant rearranging the columns' width!

-9 Change: Randomized Peer ID might not suit some private sites. An option is needed to enable/disable it

-10 The RSS downloader feature sucks.

The following two fixes are key!

-- be able to *not* use a sub-folder,

-- select if to use the "name" as a sub-folder or not etc.
