qBittorrent 4.3.4 Drops Support for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, Supports Sub-Sorting in Transfer List

Filed under

qBittorrent 4.3.4 introduces a few interesting new capabilities to the open-source torrent downloader, including sthe ability to prioritize selected items by shown file order and to allow tab to escape the text box in the “Edit trackers” dialog, sub-sorting support in the Transfer List, as well as the ability to expose ToS setting from the libtorrent library.

On Linux, this release drops support for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver), improves support for systemd system by implementing a new mechanism to wait for the local filesystems to be mounted first. Furthermore, qBittorrent 4.3.4 improves the handling of tracker entries, and adds support for Qt 5.12 LTS and libtorrent 1.2.12 as minimum requirements for building/installing the app.

QBittorrent 4.3.4 Is Released

  • QBittorrent 4.3.4 Is Released

    Configurable ToS settings, support for sub-sorting the file transfer list and 23 bug-fixes are the highlights in the latest version 4.3.4 of the popular qBittorrent download tool for quickly acquiring ISO files for GNU/Linux and other large files. Version 2.0 of the Bittorrent protocol is not supported, nor are other features only found in the qBittorrent "alpha" branch.


    The new Type Of Service setting is not overly impressive. Type Of Service is a IP packet field used by some routers, firewalls and Internet Service Providers to decide what IP packages should be sent first (typically VOIP) and what packages aren't all that important (typically Linus ISOs sent over the Bittorrent protoocl). qBittorrent 4.3.4, and 4.4.0alpha1, lets you set a single decimal number. You can look those up in our Type of Service (ToS) and DSCP Values table and find out that the default value of 32 means "Low-Priority Data". It would be a bit more user-friendly if the new ToS configuration option had a drop-down selection box where users could choose between understandable names like "Standard", "Lower-Effort" and "Low-Priority Data".

    qBittorrent 4.3.4 has 23 bug-fixes. Most are very minor but there are a few that stand out as being particularly interesting. "Validate HTTPS Tracker Certificate by default" is one. Prior versions just didn't care if a HTTPS certificate used by a tracker had the right domain in it, who signed or what period it was issued for. "Properly stop torrent creation if aborted" is another; if you try to create a huge torrent in prior versions and you abort it then you'll have threads left open working on that torrent until you quit qBittorrent.

qBittorrent 4.3.4 Released! New Sorting Logic, Drop Ubuntu 18.0

  • qBittorrent 4.3.4 Released! New Sorting Logic, Drop Ubuntu 18.04 Support

    The free and open-source BitTorrent client qBittorrent 4.3.4 was released. Here’s how to install it in Ubuntu 20.04, Ubuntu 20.10 via PPA.

    qBittorrent 4.3.4 reworked the sorting logic. To get the old sorting order for the “queue number” column, first sort on the “Completed On” column and then sort on the “#”(queue number) column.

    The new release now requires Qt >= 5.12. Ubuntu 18.04 is no longer supported via the official PPA due to outdated system libraries.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
