Wow! You guys really need to get your sh*t together...Releasing and immediately pulling your fixes is becoming the norm lately.

It's probably a good time to put a "Devs for Hire" ad in your local papers classified section.

Why is there a need to rush these fixes!...Slow down and release proper builds!

No matter how much resilience testing is done with debug builds, developers cannot cover every possible environment, and 'bug fixes' often have 'unfortunate' effects that cannot be anticipated.

Take Windows 'Me' and Vista as examples, many fundamental 'issues' in both of those were not found until people had PAID to be 'mass RC' testers (although Microsoft prefer to call them customers).

And it might be wise to leave the disaster called "Windows 8" out of the discussion.

I just question the Devs ability to understand various facets of the many operating systems and their coding into utorrent to harmonize with each!

Making the same mistakes over and over is somewhat a sign of insanity!

Maybe it's their rush mentality that they think they have to release fixes just to make the swarms of people think they are actively updating the software...I really hope that is not the case.

In any event all applications are now being accepted at Bittorrent incs. main office in San Fran.

Yeah.. I don't know what other software besides uTorrent your testing but this is not my experience AT ALL with beta and alpha software, I'm about ready to give up following this.

Maybe things might get interesting when they release a paid version, how many years away is anybody's guess, maybe that'll kickstart some actual delevopment.

3.4 should be out next year sometime, might check back then -yawn-

I have said a couple of time that I don't see what the frenetic pace of 'development' is about, but it is certtainly not about quality control.

uTorrent is the only software (from people I don't know personally) that I do any alpha or beta testing on these days.

Don't have the space for rack mount 'lab rat' machines, or the inclination to have multiple VMs set up.

I pulled 29930 as it was crashing too much. Sorry for that. On Monday will work on it and get another build out as quick as we can.

I guess changing that in the main download page - couldn't have heart...

There is no tray icon AGAIN with 3.3.2.29944.

Please fix this irritating bug. It was bad enough in the last few 3.3.1 builds, now it's crept over into 3.3.2 :mad:

(Going back to 3.3.2.29806 and hey presto, tray icon is back. Windows XP SP3).

Well lets be fair, XP is a TWELVE YEAR OLD operating system for which service pack support has ended and will reach "End of Life" in a little under eight months, UNLESS you want to pay M$ for the privilege.

So it's not that surprising that there are problems and why should developers support what is essentialy a dead operating system.

Like I said, with the previous 3.3.2.29806 beta, tray icon IS THERE.

It's a bug, and has nothing to do with XP being X amount of years old.

(To clarify, the tray icon is INVISBLE and occupying a space. Hovering cursor over it shows uTorrents details).

No, it's caused by using newer image formats that are NOT supported by an ancient operating system!

The empty space is the equivalent of the "red 'x'" for missing or unsupported images in web browsers.

Would that be the (ancient :lol:) .ico format?

Are you seriously suggesting the "image format" is being changed between certain 3.3.1 betas/stable and 3.3.2 betas, so that some display the icon and some do not?? :lol:

Even the current alpha shows an icon (edit: latest one doesn't. It must have been a previous alpha I was trying but removed when I noticed that the pause button had gone).

The current 3.3.1 does not, but the vast majority of previous versions do (since the introduction of the updated icon back in February).

yes... @build 29163 :P

I know that a new uTorrent icon was introduced:

http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?pid=712690#p712690

I've had no problems with the new icon on the vast majority of releases since it's introduction. It's works without problem.

That doesn't explain why the tray icon is invisible on only certain releases.

Let's hope they'll fix this regression in one of the next builds.

+1.

It's not the end of the world that's it "broke" in this latest beta version :/

I'm just alerting a developer (hopefully) about it.

Has been already alerted in that thread... :)

Thanks.

I completely missed that thread :cool:

(The tray.ico fix worked for me, although I created my own icon).

Actually .ico is not strictly a 'format', but is a container for images in other formats and it is some of the content images that is the issue.

Moving from 3.3.1 29812 to 3.3.2 - resulted in loosing my search engines/links list :( For you too?

(backup your 3.3.1 settings.dat!)

So what I'm reading is there is absolutely no reason whatsoever to update from my 3.3.1 (29812) version. The only problem I have with 29812 (the non-deletion of .torrent files) isn't fixed in this build, and a whole host of potential new problems are introduced? Pass.

"Remove and delete .torrent" will fail to delete torrent file.

I guess it was fixed in 3.4. Let's hope they'll back-port it to 3.3.x .

It's fixed in the 3.4 Alpha, I finally tested it, but there are SO MANY other issues with that Alpha that I'd rather just deal with the non-deletion.

abnormal RAM consumtion is closed

Maybe there is no such issue? Maybe it is all related to how much RAM-cache you've allowed to use in your advanced-cache->settings? You are welcome to my setting with ~150M RAM max total, ~40M typical...
