qBittorrent Question
« on: March 09, 2017, 12:53:24 am »
Hello all! Answers from Veterans (or even Staff) would be super helpful on this topic, so here goes:

First off, I've been a long-time user of BakaBT, not so much on the forums, but I do have a good idea of where to read for stuff before making a post like this.

  • I've been seeding for a while, and for the longest time I've used uTorrent. (Client v2.2.1)
  • I recently built a new system, and I want a new client that doesn't hog ALL of my Memory cache or has Ads everywhere.
  • As a result, I'm looking into qBittorrent.
  • Current Whitelist version is v3.3.7
  • Current RELEASE is v3.3.11
  • A post about the recent change has been posted HERE
  • I know that it will take time for Duki and the other staff to look into things and eventually add a later (or current) version to the Whitelist, and as a result, this is NOT a "Please release this version now" post

My QUESTION is this:

If I download and use v3.3.11, will I be banned for using a client that isn't currently on the Whitelist? If the possibility of that happening is high, will someone kindly point me to a TRUSTED site to download v3.3.7? I don't want to take any chances with my new computer.

Thank you for any help!

You won't be banned. However, you won't be able to use BakaBT either until the client is whitelisted.

Thanks! Can I trust SourceForge for the 3.3.7 download then? (I can't find a "Previous Versions" page on qBittorrent's site)

EDIT: Nevermind. Did some more digging on their site and found they promote using SF for their earlier versions.

Thanks again!

IIRC the latest whitelist qbittorrent version is 3.3.10 (the sorting is kinda messed up on the whitelist page)
