Can someone post a download link to the new one as all my ISP's companies IP addresses are banned from the uTorrent forums?

After many months of RC releases, seems we are finally closing in to a final release...

This build will be the stable (not RC) in about 12 hours, so feel free to test it before then.

Changelog:

- Fix: work around Windows bug with network drives and sparse files

- Fix: crash with Torrent and RSS items selected when setting labels

- Fix: write MIME associations to a user-writable location in the registry, for limited user accounts

- Fix: check the 'complete' folder for items downloaded from RSS, same as adding manually

No more changes, no more trivial fixes. The only possible changes we'll make are crash fixes and critical showstopping bugs.

Download Link: uTorrent 1.8 build 11730

That's not the whole changelog. That's just what's changed since the last RC. I've created a new topic here for the release instead of the RTM on the 12th page of a alpha build posting.
