qBittorrent is a cross-platform BitTorrent client that comes with an integrated search engine, web interface, sequential download support, bandwidth scheduler, RSS support and other useful features.
qBittorrent 3.0.0 was released yesterday, bringing improved performance and various optimizations along with some UI changes and new features:
- a new torrent addition dialog
- WebUI: support for adding multiple local torrents at once
- improved style for the left panel
- ability to choose the save path when using magnet links
|The new "add torrent" dialog|
Also, with the release of version 3.0, qBittorrent no longer supports libtorrent 0.14.x and Qt 4.5.
Install qBittorrent 3.0 in Ubuntu
To install the latest stable qBittorrent in Ubuntu 11.10 or 12.04, use the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hydr0g3n/qbittorrent-stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install qbittorrent
The above PPA provides qBittorrent for older Ubuntu releases too, but not the latest qBittorrent 3.0.
