4.3.0 is now out.

The biggest changes since the 4.2 release include:
- Reintroduction of a tabbed torrent list widget, though a bit different then the old tab widget from the 4.1 days.
- Improved support for magnet links
- Support for removable storage
- A whole bunch of bugfixes and smaller improvements over ktorrent 4.2

For a full list of changes, take a look at the ChangeLog files included with the tar balls.

Folks,

May I request a minor fix and some info please?

The fix would be to the magnetview.cpp, can you please add a line with code
Code: Select all
      setSelectionMode(QAbstractItemView::ExtendedSelection);

after line 39 please? I guess the intent was to allow multiple selection of magnets, but it was missed. This fixes lack of multiple selection. The routine will look like this:
Code: Select all
   MagnetView::MagnetView(MagnetModel* magnet_model,QWidget* parent): QTreeView(parent),magnet_model(magnet_model)
   {
      setAllColumnsShowFocus(true);
      setRootIsDecorated(false);
      setContextMenuPolicy(Qt::CustomContextMenu);
      setModel(magnet_model);
      setSelectionMode(QAbstractItemView::ExtendedSelection); // allow multiple selection
      connect(this,SIGNAL(customContextMenuRequested(QPoint)),this,SLOT(showContextMenu(QPoint)));
      
      menu = new KMenu(this);
      start = menu->addAction(KIcon("kt-start"),i18n("Start Magnet"),this,SLOT(startMagnetDownload()));
      stop = menu->addAction(KIcon("kt-stop"),i18n("Stop Magnet"),this,SLOT(stopMagnetDownload()));
      menu->addSeparator();
      remove = menu->addAction(KIcon("kt-remove"),i18n("Remove Magnet"),this,SLOT(removeMagnetDownload()));
   }

Also I would like to fix and test dropping of magnet URLs dragged from a browser onto the main window, but being totally new to Qt having difficulty finding where it's handled. If you can point me in the right direction, I'd greatly appreciate that and post the fix here.

Although my issue with drag'n'drop might not be as simple. Trying to drop magnet links from Tor browser (which is patched Firefox), I do not get a new magnet. But it works fine from regular Firefox.
