Since I can't trust Firon anymore to relay these to the other devs, here are a few issues that need to be addressed:

1. If you bring up the torrent deletion confirmation dialog box while a torrent is being renamed (how I did this I don't know), confirming the delete will render the Escape key unusable. You can no longer hide uTorrent or close dialog forms with it until you initiate a torrent rename.

2. My default gateway showed up in the peers list several times in several torrents. Could be related to the tracker returning a peer with an IP of 127.0.0.1.

3. Torrent selection order is wrong. Ever since 3.1(?) if you delete the currently selected torrent, the selection moves to the torrent previous torrent alphabetically, even if you don't have the torrent list sorted by name.

4. I guess a side-effect of bug #3 is that the after that happens, the Detailed Info pane shows info for the wrong torrent (it's not showing info for the highlighted torrent).

5. If uTorrent is minimized to the system tray, clicking on the uTorrent shortcut that is pinned to the task bar restores uTorrent to a minimized state.

6. If uTorrent is minimized to the system tray and you open a .torrent file (to bring up the Add New Torrent dialog), clicking on uTorrent pinned to the task bar to minimize it to the system tray doesn't work. You have to click twice. I guess this is because the Add New Torrent dialog is focused instead of the main form.

7. The uTorrent installation wizard still appears every time you update uTorrent.

8. The Add New Torrent dialog has at least two issues. One I circled, one I didn't (hint: it's the terrible layout/wasted space): http://stfcc.org/pics/i/a31a0c1b20fc93bde124f3bd52676a50.png

9. Setting speed limits cause actual transfer speeds to drop far below the limit.

What's the change between 28500 and 28502?

The new 3.2.2 release is having issues with a few private trackers, the following error message is displayed and downloads are not starting:

"Tracker sending invalid data: <NULL>."

The previous stable 3.2.1 release works without issue.

Hmmm bugger!!! I was hoping that this particular forum app didn't lock search IDs to cookie/session IDs.

But hey-ho

So for Skates the instructions are:

Open http://forum.utorrent.com/search.php

Type in or paste "Tracker sending invalid data: <NULL>." (including the quote marks) into the search box, click Search (or press <Enter> and the information you need will magically appear.

Unfortunately that is not the right answer, this is particular to 3.2.2 only as I have tried it on multiple computers without any success. Downgrading to 3.2.1 solves the problem!

Well as the instructions were for how to use the forum search I believe that it was the right answer.

And what else is common across those machines?

Internet security software?

Standard Windows 8 installs with Windows Defender and Windows Firewall. No other firewall and/or security software. Both are on different networks...

You know what would be good? Fixing up some of these issues without changing the version number.

That is impossible! Collaberative software versioning systems do NOT allow that to happen.

Great to see a stable version after the many betas / RC's, thanks!

An important tiny 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 from this stable build at the moment...

Implement fix, change build number, release as same version number, they've done this a number times, check out 3.1's changelog where 26591, 26593, 26595, 26616, 26650 and 26671 are all "stable" 3.1. Collaberative software versioning systems indeed :rolleyes:

The reason why it's nice to have fixes without having the version number change is because there's no delay in installing these versions and running them on private trackers which require validation of new versions. I'd like to propose that smaller bug fixes are done in this manner rather than waiting sometimes months for a new .1 version to release. Do you really want to wait until 3.3 is out before these bugs are fixed? That could be some months away.

Doing it this way is a much better solution, just focus on the bugs.

The last number represents 'builds', which is where the source files are compliled into the executable versions, .exe, .dll etc. Each build number MAY or MAY NOT indicate that a change was made to the source, simply that a compile was done and the resultant installation was released and distributed as the current version for alpha or beta testing, or as a RC or stable release.

There are garbled lines in the add dialog, e.g. the "Comment" line overlaps the "Size" line making it unreadable. It shows shortly up when clicking in the list field only to disappear again.

I'm still the one relaying it anyway... :) These are all added to the backlog.

For #7, can you clarify how you're updating the client? Are you autoupdating (like, help -> check for updates) and seeing the installer?

Or are you just running the installer? You should see the installer if you're doing the latter, since the build # changed. It's expected behavior.

"Tracker sending invalid data: <NULL>."

The previous stable 3.2.1 release works without issue.

The tracker is sending invalid data, though we could be more helpful and actually show a snipper of what they sent. That was the intent of the error, but at some point it stopped showing that and only shows null/

Tracker responses should always be valid bencoded data. This error means it's not.

Wireshark it and complain to the tracker, basically.

and for the tracker admins that are reading... 3.2.2 sends the Accept-Language header with the user's system language. Seems like some of you are doing HTTP fingerprinting, so in the interest of making it work again, we'll just remove the header. Probably the next build.

Help | Download Translation STILL does not seem to work....

Confirmed. I'll take a look and see what happened here. I don't think this is a client-side issue.
