Thursday September 7th 2017 - qBittorrent v3.3.16 and 3.4.0beta2_20170709_cbfbae14090 release

Since it was a month since the last stable and v3.4.0 seems to be delayed just a bit, it was a good time to backport critical fixes and do another v3.3.x release.

Saturday February 13th 2016 - The forum is restored

As mentioned earlier, there were reports that the forums from a bunch of bittorrent related sites were hacked. As a result we switched off our forum to investigate. To the best of our knowledge we weren't hacked. We didn't discover any evidence of unauthorized entry. We highly suspect that the self-proclaimed "hacker" was a fraud instead. Just so you know the passwords are saved hashed and salted in the database. It is very difficult to reverse this and obtain the real password. In any case, we reset all the passwords and switched on the forum. You already should have received an email about your new password.

Tuesday December 22nd 2015 - Forum compromise

It has come to our attention that the forum database containing user info might have been compromised by a third unauthorized party. We aren't able to tell if this is true from our logs. And we aren't sure if the hack was real. See more info in this article. If the database was indeed compromised it was probably through a bug of the forum software. We had installed version 2.0.11 of SMF, which is the latest stable. As a precaution we have taken down the forums. The passwords weren't saved as plaintext, but as salted hashes. It will make it very difficult for the hackers to recover the real passwords. However, we strongly recommend you to change your password to any other site on which you used the same password. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Saturday October 10th 2015 - qBittorrent v3.2.4 release

qBittorrent v3.2.4 was released. This release finally fixes an obscure "hit-and-run" bug with trackers. It is actually a libtorrent bug which is fixed in their source.

This version should be the last in the v3.2.x series. The upcoming v3.3.x is pretty stable and we'll focus to streamline it for release.

Thursday November 27th 2014 - Ubuntu PPAs

As you may have noticed already our Ubuntu PPAs were broken for quite some time now. Chris Dumez, who maintained them, was unable to fix them. Today I managed to create new and working PPAs. Head over to the download page and find the new PPAs. You should remove the old ones to avoid conflicts.

Wednesday October 22nd 2014 - qBittorrent v3.1.11 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 committed 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.

Another recent news was that Mininova engine disabled access to over a million torrent files when it partly shut down its website due to legal issues.

As a result, we are currently publishing new plugins on 4 new plugins are available at the time I'm writing this news while qBittorrent already supported 3 engines listed in the Top 10. This means that only 3 more plugins are missing to support the whole Top 10.
