i like it... the 1.8 7041 alpha is stable for me, so i dont mind hearing about updates....though they cold probably stay in BPN and not make it to the main page...will be updating to this one to see how it performs.

Nice...they mproved hash-checking speeds, and a host of other features since the last alpha was released.


Change Log since 7041:

--- 2007-12-17: Version 1.8 alpha (build 7237)

- Feature: skip hashchecking sparse sections of sparse files (greatly improves check speed)

- Change: "#" sorts by "completed on" for seeding torrents
- Change: "eta" sorts by "completed on" for seeding torrents (and "completed on" sorts by "eta" for download torrents)
- Change: Layout of "Save in:" column in RSS filter tab to match others with "..." buttons
- Fix: crash bug with relevance column and metadata mode
- Fix: directories left behind by Delete + Data to trash
- Fix: prio_first_last_piece would overlap adjacent files more than needed
- Fix: ETA miscalc with bottlenecked torrents

I don't think we need alpha builds reported on Neowin as these builds are released so often. Beta, yes, Alpha, no.
