Update: first bugfix release for 4.3 is out

New stable release for ktorrent and libktorrent.

The biggest changes since the 4.2 release include:
- Reintroduction of a tabbed torrent list widget, though a bit different then the old tab widget from the 4.1 days.
- Improved support for magnet links
- Support for removable storage
- A whole bunch of bugfixes and smaller improvements over ktorrent 4.2


For a full overview of all changes, take a look in the ChangeLog files included with the source code.

I was going to compile a package of this new version and upload it to the repo,but when I saw that there isnt the Seacrh function anymore,I decided to stick with the older version.

Are you going to remove the search tab for the final release?
Please,put it back there,it was one of the greatest highlights of this app!Do you know how hard it is to find such function for linux?

I liked all settings options in the search ability,but you could add the option to open search results with Opera or Firefox If you decide to put it right back for the next release.

Seriously,I stuck using your app only because of this function and you are removing it?

EDIT:
Sry,I just compiled it and saw that its still there lol.I made a package.

Good job.
Anyway,you can make it open the search results in a sepparate opera or firefox browser in the next version.Its a good idea.

Are those screenshots still up to date? I have installed it, the about box gives me 1.2-rc1 as version number, but it has no search tab, and in the configure dialog there is a "Plugins" page instead of a "Search" page, with no plugins listed. Is this correct? And is there a search plugin that I can download somewhere? I really liked that functionality.

You should have search plugin listed in "Plugins" dialog along with couple of other plugins. Did you 'make install' if you installed from source? Or maybe you used some precompiled package?

It is not working on my Slackware Current :(
I got the .tgz package from your official site and even burned it on a blank CD with some other nice stuff.
Well is requires some libstdc++.so.6
And I have ...so.5
I tried to create a symbolic link and to cheat it this way, but... no success :(

I tried to compile the new version 1.2. Everyhing worked fine on my kubuntu 5.10. But after make install there is no link in /usr/bin or somewhere else. How can I start ktorrent?

It would be nice if KTorrent support torrent file editing. I cloud change annouce for torrent file. That would be nice :)

When you are downloading a torrent with multiple files, every file, that is complete should be moved to the destination folder.
In the listview, where you can select, which file should be downloaded, there should be a column, where you can see whether the file is complete/actual progress.
And finally I had problems with files with umlauts. I don't know, which encoding was used (konqueror couldn't display it correct, but in the listview ktorrent could). And I don't know what you can do there, but I wanted you to let know.

I really like bittorrent and how it works. Only reason why i dont like to use it is we didnt have KDE bittorrent software, until now :-D

Things what i really like to see is to get priority for files what you are downloading, like if i download folder where is 2 small video, i would like to download video1 before video2 so i can start watching that and continue to video2 when it is ready.

And what that UDP search means?

does it has something to do with that screenshot of slackware search?

Very promising app. Unfortunately the speed capping doesn't seem to work. I restricted it to 12 kb/sec but it still uploads with full speed. So I can't surf the net while downloading. :(

But on the whole, a very promising app! Hope I can deinstall Azureus soon. :)

Something that I think wouldn't go a miss. Intergrating it with KDE Notifications. That way we can play a sound and/or use kpassive-popup for letting us know when a download is complete or for some other event

Would it be possible to have a the dock icon to show the actual download state,
the same way the amarok icon shows the state of the current song ?

I'm happy for you. Doesn't make it more usable for me though.

I like it but it's yet a tad to unstable. It crashed four times in the ten minutes I used it, always at the "select files to download" screen.

This is a great project. Azureus killer.
