qBittorrent 4.3.0 release notes:

  • Theming support has been enhanced but previous theme bundles will not work properly with this release. Please contact the theme provider for a fix. The new format is described here.
  • If you want faster tracker announce rate or are having a slower client exit(compared to 4.2.x) then you may try increasing the Max concurrent HTTP announce limit from advanced settings.
  • The latest version of libtorrent used contains many important fixes compared to the last one, including memory leaks and speed issues due to wrong caching logic on Windows.
  • Qt 5.15.1 is used which offers far better HiDPI support. However, the torrent context menu will close after each tag selection.
  • Brave users can download experimental builds from "Actions CI" on github.

Changes in qBittorrent 4.3.0.1:

This is a minor release to address crashes on Windows related to torrents with URL seeds (HTTP Sources in the qbittorrent window). These crashes were exposed due to boost 1.74. Boost 1.73 doesn't have this problem. However, libtorrent also fixed the issue on their end so the Windows installers use the newer libtorrent code. The rest of the release is almost the same as v4.3.0. Since other platforms weren't affected only Windows builds will be made available for this version.

v4.3.0.1 changelog:

  • WINDOWS: NSIS: Update Dutch translation (bovirus)
