Software Update: BitTorrent 4.3.0 beta

The BitTorrent protocol, it will be known to everyone by now, was developed by Bram Cohen and is intended to be able to distribute large and popular files easily, without the original provider having to have a very large pipe to the Internet. Everyone who downloads immediately helps with the further distribution of the files. A new beta version of the original program BitTorrent has been released for the Linux and Windows platform with 4.3.0 as the version number. The list of changes looks like this:

Version 4.3.0:

  • UPnP support (experimental)
  • System tray icon on Windows (experimental)
  • Start at startup on Windows
  • start minimised
  • internationalized installer

  • Auto-update won’t migrate across different minor version numbers
  • Improved file list (disabled)
  • New internal state file format, failure save_as in torrent_config
  • Many string changes and internationalization additions
  • Fix for obscure –bind command line bug
