DL leads to. . . 3.4(B28762) Alpha version not 3.3.1

{Well the Installer is labeled as 3.3, but after installing you get 3.4}

If you have an alpha build installed (3.4), please uninstall first.

Thanks!

Hmm I had 3.3 installed... but will try again.

Interesting after uninstalling 3.3, and I launch the installer it instantly pulls up 3.4 {As if using a Portable version.}

EdIT:

Guess I'll stick to STable for now at least.

I have the latest stable version installed (3.3) and I have checked update to beta versions on the preferences panel... When I click on check for updates it won't update to 3.3.1... It says I have the latest version... is this feature working? Or do I have to download the beta myself?

utorrent 3.4 already focus on silent autoupdate. what the purpose of utorrent 3.3.1 version. uTorrent 3.4 and 3.3.1 version focus on silent autoupdate (which is same thing).I dont understand actually????

you have to download this beta from website.utorrent 3.3 stable autoupdate to beta does not work.even you tick the check box.

I hope disk caching and flushing is fixed in this 3.3 beta, maybe someone tried it already? I'm willing to stick with 3.2 until the whole new disk i/o is bug free.

Check the free torrent on TPB "TPB AFK".

It's the first time I started getting disk overload errors. 3.3 stable and 3.3.1 beta, likewise. I've never seen again the infamous error that everyone is talking about. It happens at the beginning 3-4 times consistently. Meanwhile, my connection isn't something fast. I can only download with 2MB/s on a Sata 3 WD Black HDD. The seeders are too many and as a result, at the beginning I get fullspeed extremely fast... Don't know if this has something to do with the problem... Maybe it needs a little more tweaking?

Also, yea... 3.3.1 didn't ask where to install... I now have 2 versions. One on my SSD ( 3.3.1 ) and one on my HDD ( 3.3 ) with all the shortcuts and who knows what else.

By the way, I've enabled, "notify me before installing updates" and I'm waiting to get one to see whether it works or not. I'll report back.

Not quite fixed yet... but it's better, and getting there...

- Some complete pieces are still accumulating in cache and not being flushed (more after pausing/stopping ...)

- After start+stop - average file-write size - is less then the piece size.

Forgot to say, I just discovered why the rendering of magnet links is extremely slow if I have at least one more active torrent... It's because I've set upload/download limits. If I turn both to "0" ( unlimited ) no matter how many torrents are active, the rendering is extremely fast...

Unless there's a glitch in 3.3 which has been fixed in 3.3.1 beta, but none mentioned anything about. Or... these "flushing" fixes helped somehow...

Can this build be runned as a portable app... executed on a higher drive letter, eg a large flash drive and NOT write ANY crap & junk onto the C: drive...???

Put the exe + settings.dat (there is one below...) file on it and let us know what happens... I vote: yes...

I've been doing the exe an empty settings.dat method ever since 2.2.1 with no problems whatsoever.

BTW...3.3.1 looks very promising...Stay on this path devs.

Can't get this new beta to install.

It launches and then closes on its own in 1-2 seconds.

No window no nothing, just looking at the Task manager.

Dirty shutdown problem with 3.3.1.29105.

Used file -> Exit to close down for a reboot after Windows 7 updates.

Invalid download state on restart which re-checked [several times] to a CRC error and 56G of a 83G download had to be dumped and the job reloaded.

I don't get it - you've read about it, why not take precautions?... :P

Well! That WAS the plan with shutting the client down "cleanly" with "File -> Exit" then waiting until the processes complete and close.

The client was shut down BEFORE I started the update process and fourteen updates takes quite a while to complete before the machine was rebooted.

Any problems that I have encountered previously with such occurrences have been due to a 'dirty' shutdown ie: the client being 'forced' to yield to a Windows halt instruction or a 'hard' reset being required, so fifteen minutes plus should have been sufficient for cache flushing and/or unloading.

Can someone else test this.

If you right click and delete torrent + date, only the torrent is deleted and not the data. NOt sure if this occurred in 3.4
