What's New in This Release:
  • This release allows you to filter the torrent list by tracker. Click on the tracker name to set the filter, and 'Show All' to clear it.
  • This release fixes issues with XML-RPC, inability to display Unicode characters, the license, random 0.2.6 nitpicks, status of "leeching" when it should have been "seeding", setting file priorities not working, the negative numbers problem for the seeded column, failure of AJAX refresh, torrent uploading and starting, and wordwrap() not being multibyte friendly.
  • json.php keeps the error console clear.
