As long as those a gone we are fine...

Ok, perhaps you would care to explain why you feel it is such a 'big deal' about them being on the status bar, temporarily or permanently, they are fairly insignificant even when visible.

Simple. Because there was a commitment to be able to disable *all* of the offer/ad-related GUI. This is one, and the click - is the disable control

Not sure how social Twitter and FaceBook relate to advertising, and there are a thousand and one applications that are purchased not ad or user supported that have far more prominent "Social Media" icons and connections.

It just seems that it is one more very minor point where some people can metaphorically "bite the hand that feeds you". BitTorrent/uTorrent do not owe you, as a user anything.

Are you planning to fix the labeling system?

Now labeling system just useless.

Why not just report the issues you have and suggest how you like it to behave ?

Wow, quick answer, thanks, but report is not necessary, problem is known and written on pages ago. I like that system is looks like but a assume that lower label must compare label and place and when in download window select the label then it must change automatically the place, and because of that i made conclusion that labeling system still doesn't work :)

I have problem with the speed. It shows half of what in reality I'm downloading with. I was downloading a 3.3 gb file speed shown in utorrent is 1.6mb/s, but it is 3.2mbs measures with 2 other programs. Utorrent 3.3.2 report it normally.

speed shown in utorrent is 1.6mb/s

uTorrent shows speeds in MBps NOT Mbps

Yea I know but I was to lazy to verify. Even so you got my point. To much nitpicking.

Is it a new feature, that the beta version now starts not as utorrent.exe, but as a file from updates directory? Tried using the "stable" release and it seems to work as expected, but as soon as I update to the beta release - utorent hides itself :D

Not 'nitpicking'' date=' B means bytes whereas b =means bits therefore there are EIGHT [b']b in every B which is an important distinction when comparing speeds.

The "Auto Label and Directory Rules" feature only works if the 'Show options to change the name and location of the torrent data' checkbox is enabled.

If this option is not enabled, the torrent being added to uTorrent is not given a label.

To reproduce:

1. Uncheck 'Show options to change the name and location of the torrent data' checkbox.

2. Add torrent to uTorrent.

3. Notice the Label column in the main window; the torrent is not given a label.

This behaviour happens is uTorrent v3.4 (build 30272).

Confirmed. Maybe this is the design? should it be applied also to torrents from RSS?

Well IMHO it either needs to be made clear that this feature doesn't work if the 'Show options to change the name and location of the torrent data' option is checked, or, it needs fixing. Preferably the latter, as I think the auto labelling of torrents is a really useful feature. Because I add maybe 5-6 torrents a day, I don't want to have the 'Show options...' box appear every time I load a torrent just to have the auto-labelling feature work.

The problem is that as it is now, the filter ("that includes) is too "week" thus, IMHO is not very useful . Should be at least as powerful as the RSS filter is.

µTorrent beta 3.4 build 30304 is now available for download...No changelog.

Took me 3 tries to get that version. I really wish they'd get their download system fixed. It's just stupid the way it is.

Interesting. Since my down speed has been showing less than half what it should, I tried going back to v2.2.1 (just copying over the resume.dat file), and now everything that I had added in the newer version has to go through a hash check.

That's a royal pain. Anyone know why this would be?

build 30272:

gui.show_status_icon_in_dl_list doesn't work :(

This issue is back in Build 30304 :(

And when I switched to ANY other version, (ex 30255), it re-hashes everything that was added in the later version.
