Software Update: qBittorrent 3.1.12

A new version of qBittorrent has been released. This open source torrent client has versions for Windows, Linux, OS X and FreeBSD, and shows no ads.

Today it is maintained by the community. The release notes for version 3.1.12 look like this:

qBittorrent v3.1.12 release

This is merely an excuse for a new and correct build for OSX users. The previous versions didn’t work on older hardware. In the meantime I backported some important fixes for Windows which resulted in crashes too.

  • OSX: Fix build to work with older machines.
  • WINDOWS: Fix automatic Python download.
  • WINDOWS: Fix crashes due to memory corruption and improve Python registry searching.
