It is very difficult to reverse this and obtain the real password. We had installed version 2.0.11 of SMF, which is the latest stable. The passwords weren't saved as plaintext, but as salted hashes. This version should be the last in the v3.2.x series. Windows user with many torrents don't need to manually exit the application before system shutdown anymore. The previous versions didn't work on older hardware. Provided by user Dom T4 (github) As you may have noticed already our Ubuntu PPAs were broken for quite some time now. I know I said that v3.1.10 would be the last of the v3.1.x series.
So until boost fixes it, I am going to use boost 1.55 for Windows releases. Now you can send money in Bitcoins and Litecoins too. I'm glad to announce that I uploaded today the first release candidate for q Bittorrent v3.0.0, the next major release of q Bittorrent.
Pay Pal donations will continue, but Bitcoins are preferred. I am really busy for the last few months in real life. If you take a look at the git repo you will see what the new commits fix. Some work has been done for the 3.2.x series, but serious development will begin after 3.1.10 has been released. We encourage people to start testing this release candidate and help us iron out the issues so that we can make a final release as soon as possible.
Finally, the future stable version will be v4.0.0 not v3.4.0 v3.3.16 changelog: Windows packages for v3.4.0beta_20170807_0320f9d5b5e are released. CAVEAT: The 32bit build doesn't work on Windows XP.
Those who understand Italian can read the full guide here: La Grande Guida a Bit Torrent. This will be the last release in the v3.3.x series.
You already should have received an email about your new password. However, we strongly recommend you to change your password to any other site on which you used the same password. PS: Ubuntu and OS X builds will be available in a few hours. We had a minor issue with our Paypal account, which has now been resolved. This does not mean that Paypal is preferred, the other methods work just fine too. In the meantime, more bugfixes and features were commited by others.
(you may need to force refresh the main page to make your browser discard the old cached one) Again, I would like to thank everyone for the continued support and donations. So v3.1.11 should be the last unless we find some serious issues with it. It is marked as 188.8.131.52 so the auto-update mechanism can work. Don't download it from q Bittorrent v3.1.1 was released.
We highly suspect that the self-proclaimed "hacker" was a fraud instead. This series have switched to Qt5 but Qt4 is still supported. It is actually a libtorrent bug which is fixed in their source.
Just so you know the passwords are saved hashed and salted in the database. If the database was indeed compromised it was probably through a bug of the forum software. But for fixing builds that will use older versions of libtorrent (eg on Linux) I made a change in the v3.2.4 code that will circumvent the bug anyway. This is merely an excuse for a new and correct build for OSX users. Now it doesn't crash during launch due to incorrect dynamic library linking.
We are hoping this will facilitate code contributions through merge requests and GIT patches.
We need more people contributing code, the development team is way too small at the moment.
It fixes a few bugs (including one potentially important) and improves performance.
