Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Not so long ago, qBittorrent 2.0 was released and yesterday, the application very similar to uTorrent releases another version with lots of new features and improvements.

New features include categorizing/labeling to better organize big torrent lists (uTorrent style), headless running for people who want to run qBittorrent on a server without X server and control it remotely, new search engine plugins, better proxy support, a more secure and complete Web UI.

For a lot of people, the labels and headless running features are great news. I for one will install it on my headless Debian server in the following days to give it a try.

Another new feature which I really like and is very important for private torrent trackers is that qBittorrent can identify itself as uTorrent, Vuze or KTorrent (any stable version):

qbittorrent 2.1.0

You can find the complete list of changes, HERE.

qBittorrent installation instructions can be found on our original post on qBittorrent.
