It is that time of year when we have to endure cold, miserable and relentless snowy conditions.

Or, if you live in California, you have to endure your out-of-state friends posting pictures of their cold, miserable and relentless snowy living conditions.

Either way, it is the perfect season for bundling up, grabbing a mug of spiked/hot cider, putting on some slow jams and…

Squashing bugs!

  • Fixed crash in Advanced settings (sometimes triggered when saving)
  • Fixed crash in the Devices page (sometimes triggered when adding a conversion device)
  • Fixed crash in the Devices page (sometimes triggered when setting up devices page but no conversion devices are configured
  • Fixed client hang (when uTorrent was left open for 2-3 hours, sometimes Internet Explorer would trigger a client hang)

Just in time for the holidays. This release of uTorrent pairs very well with eggnog, cheese logs, red coffee cups, and the N-Sync christmas album. This particular release is also very special because the version number is sequential. A uTorrent stable version number that is sequential is rare and doesn’t happen very often. It is meant to be treasured. It is basically the software equivalent of a blood moon, or Halley’s comet, or a Half Life game.

Moving on.

In this release, we focused on: bug fixes and stability updates. Seriously. We squashed a lot of bugs and stabilized all sorts of things.
