Saturday October 10th 2015 – qBittorrent v3.2.4 release

qBittorrent v3.2.3 is released. This release finally fixes an obscure “hit-and-run” bug with trackers. It is actually a libtorrent bug which is fixed in their source. But for fixing builds that will use older versions of libtorrent (eg on Linux) I made a change in the v3.2.4 code that will circumvent the bug anyway. This version should be the last in the v3.2.x series. The upcoming v3.3.x is pretty stable and we’ll focus to streamline it for release.
PS: Ubuntu and OS X builds will be available in a few hours.
