Linux News Today: qBittorrent 3.3.5 Open-Source BitTorrent Client Adds Torrent Management Mode
Today, June 20, 2016, the free, cross-platform, and open-source qBittorrent BitTorrent client has been updated to version 3.3.5 for all supported operating systems, including GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows.
qBittorrent 3.3.5 has been in development for the past three months, during which the project’s development team managed to include some very exciting new features, such as a Torrent Management Mode (TMM), a brand new dialog for managing cookies, as well as support for using unique temporary directories.
Another feature that probably many of you out there have waited for so long is the ability for qBittorrent to display notifications when torrents are added. Starting with qBittorrent 3.3.5 users will be able to sort labels using a natural sort algorithm, which has been implemented in the right-click context menu.
Furthermore, there’s now a new option that users can enable in the setting for qBittorrent to automatically remove .torrent files once a new torrent was added, and another option for advanced users to be able to bind directly to an IP address instead of a network interface.
Users can write shell scripts now
qBittorrent 3.3.5 is the first release of the open-source and cross-platform torrent and magnet downloader that introduces major improvements to the “Run External Program” feature, which finally lets users write their own shell scripts. However, please note that the shell scripts can only work on the platform they’re created.
Lastly, it is now possible to specify a filter when choosing an IP filter file, the drawing of the speed graph has received multiple optimizations, the WebUI now includes a command to fetch the logs, the built-in search functionality has been greatly enhanced, and there are many cosmetic changes and lots of bug fixes.
