KTorrent 2.2.6

KTorrent version 2.2.6 has been released. This is most likely the last release we do for KDE3. It contains all the bugfixes which have happened since 2.2.5. Seeing that it is no problem to run KDE4 applications under KDE3, we have decided to end the 2.2 series as of this moment. No more bugfixes will be made to it, unless somebody finds a really grave bug or a security hole.

The source code can be found here : ktorrent-2.2.6.tar.bz2

3.0.1 is out

The first bugfix release for the 3.0 branch has been released. This release contains a pretty long list of minor and less minor bugfixes (several uncommon crashes). See the ChangeLog for more details on the bugs fixed. Click here to download the source code.

KTorrent 3.0.2

The second bugfix release for the 3.0 version is out. This release contains several bugfixes. Including one which will prevent ktorrent from crashing when unloading plugins on Qt 4.4. So if you are using Qt 4.4, you really want to upgrade. Several nasty bugs have also been squashed in the IP filter plugin.

The code can be found here : ktorrent-3.0.2.tar.bz2

3.1.1 has been released

The first bugfix release for the 3.1 series is out. It fixes a crash when double clicking on directories on the fileview, and avoids a nasty Qt bug which caused hidden torrents to be shown when clicking on the header of a view. Next to these two, several other minor fixes have been made.

Changes in 3.1.1 :
- Fix wrong icon name in PeerView for encrypted peers
- If speed is very low, don't show speed in PeerView
- Fix crash when double clicking on directories in fileview (164434)
- Added GroupFilterModel to filter out torrents, this avoids a bug in Qt which
caused hidden torrents to be shown when a view was sorted by a column.
(164113)
- Make sure port is 80 if it is not specified in device url in upnp library
- Fix Preview in right click menu of View (164503)
- Fix bug in network preferences causing the chosen network interface not to
be selected
- Fix border chunk priority being set wrongly in some rare cases (165587)
- Don't stop connecting with webseed after 3 failed attempts but keep going on
with a longer interval (2 minutes)
Source code can be found here.

How to compile

Compiling KTorrent for KDE4 is slightly different :
tar -xvjf ktorrent-3.X.Y.tar.bz2
cd ktorrent-3.X.Y
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/path/to/prefix/of/kde4/installation ..
make
sudo make install

You will need to install cmake and all the necessary development packages (Qt,KDE,libgmp,QCA2), to get it compiled properly.

I have a question about ktorrent in K/Ubuntu.

I just installed jaunty using the Pearson package (AMD64) with KDE3. I have been using hardy the past year or two. ktorrent was running when I did the new install and I am trying to figure out what files to scavenge from the hardy install to get ktorrent to resume its downloads in jaunty.

I copied over the ktorrentrc file, the /tmp files and the log files from ~/share/ktorrent before starting ktorrent. But when ktorrent starts, it balls up the existing log as a .gz file and fails to resume the incomplete downloads. :?

Any insight into this knarly problem would be greatly appreciated!
