Software update: µTorrent 2.1 build 19280 alpha

Last week a new version from the 2.1 development branch of µTorrent was released. New in version 2.1 is support for trackers and web seeds via magnet links, and for RSS feeds in the WebUI. That same WebUI now also uses encryption and would no longer require port forwarding. However, the intention is to add even more new functionality. Below is what has changed since build 18936:

Changes in version 2.1 (build 19280)

  • Change: bypass Windows system cache while reading to avoid excessive memory uage
  • Fix: invalid header response on WebUI when an expired token or invalid request was sent
  • Change: flush files periodically to prevent write cache build-ups
  • Change: right align interface toggle buttons
  • Change: prioritize downloading torrents even more than seeds when making new connections

Changes in version 2.1 (build 19225)

  • Change: flush files periodically to prevent write cache build-ups
  • Change: right align interface toggle buttons
  • Change: prioritize downloading torrents even more than seeds when making new connections

Changes in version 2.1 (build 18959)

  • Fix: IP resolving crash on peers tab
  • Change: drop uTP compatibility with uT <=1.8.1
