To report bugs requires registration. Annoying update problem presently experienced, but I'd rather go back to utorrent than have to register then sign in every time & hope another update/other clears this up. I was only trying out qBittorrent, & it's roughly equal to utorrent, if not slightly inferior.
Why would I not recommend this project, let me address the following from the FAQ: Q: What Operating systems are currently supported by qBittorrent? A: qBittorrent code compiles on Unix-like systems (Linux, BSD, MacOSX...) and Windows. However, Windows is not officially supported yet due to the lack of Windows users in the project. If there was a Windows version already compiled and made available and was announced properly, then you'd have Windows users. Heck, I want to try qBitTorrent but cannot because there is no Windows binary.
Awesome BT client. It's just works fine on both Fedora 17 and Windows 7 and I like it very much. Really best cross-platform alternative for uTorrent. Nice job, guys. Keep it up!
