BitTorrent 4.0.1

Thanks Hani for the heads up on this update.

BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer protocol designed to transfer files. Users connect directly to send and receive portions of a file, while a central tracker coordinates the action of all peers and manages connections without knowledge of the contents of the files being distributed.

What's New?

  • Possible workaround for the "TCP stack flaking out" bug as a preference.

  • Preference option for the text color over the progress bar.

  • Fixed problem picking config file and save locations on Win98/ME.

  • Switched to GTK file save widgets to fix the problem of resuming multi-file torrents.

  • Bulk traffic flag was only being set on incoming connections.

  • Some tweaks to the interface and more informative error messages.

  • Fixes to installer, including location fixes for non-English users.

  • Fix for interface lockups after being minimized.

  • Fixed a couple tracebacks.

  • A few small tracker bugs fixed.
An item which belonged in the previous notes:

Improvments to seed behaviour which addresses the problem for which super-seeding was created, but without the problems of super-seeding.
