Wednesday October 22nd 2014 - qBittorrent v3.1.10 release

qBittorrent v3.1.11 was released. I know I said that v3.1.10 would be the last of the v3.1.x series. However there were 2-3 regressions that warranted a new release. In the meantime, more bugfixes and features were commited by others. So v3.1.11 should be the last unless we find some serious issues with it.

Also some Windows 7 users experienced freezing of the GUI. We tracked it down to a specific commit in boost 1.56. So until boost fixes it, I am going to use boost 1.55 for Windows releases.
