      Important Security Advisory   06/07/2016

      On June 6th, 2016, BitTorrent was made aware of a security issue involving the vendor which powers our forums.
      The vulnerability appears to have been through one of the vendor’s other clients, however it allowed attackers to access some information on other accounts. As a result, attackers were able to download a list of our forum users. We are investigating further to learn if any other information was accessed.Our vendor has made backend changes so that the hashes in the file do not appear to be a usable attack vector. As a precaution, we are advising our users to change their passwords. While the passwords may not be used as a vector on the forums, those hashed passwords should be considered compromised. Anyone using the same password for forums as well as other places is strongly advised to update their passwords and/or practice good personal security practices.

Torrents aren't that simple. You MUST get connections to peers and have pieces coming down in order to be able to even pretend to estimate a download time on them.

I'm talking about estimated time. 

Cars have trip computers that give you range. You know the consuption and your fuel and you can do the math, but the trip computer does that for you

 

If that's good enough for you ..... An estimate that varies from minutes to years isn't good for me.

I've asked for far more useful things and never seen them implemented. This isn't happening.. ever.

The uTorrent team (if you can even call it that, I swear there's a single programmer) is so uninterested or under capitalized that it has no interest in offering even the most modest of usability improvements. This client has been at a stand still for years and this trend will continue for the foreseeable future. Please DreadWingKnight, prove me wrong.

What have you asked for? And are they available in other clients?

I doubt anything will be implemented just because a single *someone* asked for it - I want the Pause button back, but that'll never happen.

The point is I think we all could think of useful features that could be added that will not be. Not because they wouldn't be agreed upon as being beneficial to all users but simply because they do not wish to spend resources to improve the client when it performs acceptably in it's current state. Please, just look at the rate of development in ANY other active client for comparison. I'm aware of the simplest option of simply switching clients as is everyone else.
