Bittorrent updating nodes

It is unknown how long I am going to still support it. Thanks to Let's Encrypt and to shiki (forum admin).

Also the mainsite is available as a git repo now for (almost) anyone to hack, fix bugs and maybe redesign. q Bittorrent v3.3.10 was released containing hotfixes.

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.

Arch Linux users will be happy to know that this version finally supports Python 3.x, making the search engine available to them too.

Changelog: We have decided to move q Bittorrent source code to Gitorious and to use GIT instead of SVN.

However, you might experience increased memory usage due to this. It is a known problem but Qt 5.6 brings fixes that justify using it despite the graphic glitch.

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.

NOTICE TO PACKAGERS: Read 3.3.8 news and changelog too. NOTICE TO PACKAGERS: Libtorrent 1.1.x series isn't officially supported yet. It also fixes crashes on launch for some Windows setups. On Windows it uses libtorrent 1.0.9 git f716aef5 with commit 45cff5837f7b4af reverted as this one is causing the crashes. As mentioned earlier, there were reports that the forums from a bunch of bittorrent related sites were hacked.

This q Bittorent release uses API of 1.1.x that hasn't been released yet. Wait for 1.1.2 release, or build from RC_1_1 branch, or build against the 1.0.x series. As a result we switched off our forum to investigate. We didn't discover any evidence of unauthorized entry. And as you may have noticed from the v3.2.x series, we now have a healthy amount of devs contributing to it. This release finally fixes an obscure "hit-and-run" bug with trackers.

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 committed by others.
