qBittorrent 4.2.1 release notes:

  • qBittorrent v4.2.1 was released. Due to libtorrent fixes, UDP through proxies should work again. In some cases it also caused crashes. ATTENTION: There's a slight change in the way network interfaces are configured. If you have a specific network interface/local address set in the Advanced Settings, go and make sure that your settings have stayed the same. The extra setting for Listen on IPv6 address has been removed.
