- Feature: re-use data from previously downloaded torrents

Could you elaborate on this?

Will it be possible to have several torrents of the same file working together?

Deleting '.torrent + data' of torrents that have not downloaded anything yet (just added to the list) - crashes the utorrent completely

//torrent was automatically added by rss downloader, but not started

At least 'data' gets deleted, but .torrent file itself, and entry in the utorrent still stays in the list after a crash-restart.

I can manually right click and select 'remove' an entry in the list, but if I select two at the same time or if remove only one and then try remove another - only the first entry gets removed and then utorrent crashes on the second entry or second attempt to remove another entry.

UI BUG

"Completed On" column shows tracker name, instead of date

"Uploaded" shows seeds/peers

"Seeds/Peers" shows total uploaded data per torrent

Thanks for peers' state flags return;)

But what does amount of peers in respective column like 1.333 or 0.222 stands for?

And there's good ole error - "Windows Firewall: access denied" - that's corrected with single launching uTorrent with elevated privileges.

Build 28462 still has the known issue with the ffmpeg text (same as 3.3 series have, fixed in 3.2.X already):

*******List of strings not found in the language file:*******ffmpeg Process aborted with error %d. Unknown error\nMore information may be found in the transcript log at %%appdata%%\%S\media

Just another bug in 3.3 and 3.4 which I confirmed here

http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=126746

It messes up tracker urls, specifically from nyaa.eu and old tpb ones adding * before the url, making them invalid. In case of nyaa.eu it's important I guess (old tpb trackers are dead, let them be dead), since I can download more easily with 3.2.1 than 3.3. And sometimes torrent is private, in that case you can't download it, because url is invalid and it has no dht. Well..only if you know how to enable it for every torrent..ahem.

Hope someday this bug will be fixed.

This Critical Bug occures only when there are more (about) than 10 torrents in the list...

Deleting '.torrent + data' of torrents that have not downloaded anything yet (just added to the list) - crashes the utorrent completely

//torrent was automatically added by rss downloader, but not started

At least 'data' gets deleted, but .torrent file itself, and entry in the utorrent still stays in the list after a crash-restart.

I can manually right click and select 'remove' an entry in the list, but if I select two at the same time or if remove only one and then try remove another - only the first entry gets removed and then utorrent crashes on the second entry or second attempt to remove another entry.

Had roll back to 3.3

3.4 in its first build is beyond unusable, since such a trivial thing as deleting torrents crashing it...

Nice, thanks for the improvements / new features! :)

An important feature request (regarding "Add New Torrent" dialog): could you please make the "Create Subfolder" checkbox remember its last state (checked / unchecked)? It would be awesome - that's the only feature i really miss at the moment...

Just performed a clean install of this utorrent 3.4 first build.

...God forbid you decide to change the default playback player from uTorrent player to anything else - Settings window will not let you close it until you assign computer name and password, even though you have utorrent remote access disabled by default and it is greyed out!

I just performed clean install, we'll see. How it goes.

Just crashed again.

Crash dump:

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/61108/28462-utorrent.c265.dmp

If I use the "delete" button; it WILL crash on the 4th torrent to be deleted. The first 3 will be removed from the list, the 4th one will crash. Be it one-by-one or 3 or 4 at once.

The column index error is from [App][Peers] onwards.
