7.12.0-RC3 is out!

Dear Tribler Community,

Today we’re releasing the Tribler 7.12.0-RC3 version.

This release candidate fixes several problems with Tribler startup and shutdown:

  • clicking on a torrent file should launch Tribler and start download;
  • Tribler should no longer freeze and demonstrate “Force shutdown” button

The full list of bugfixes is awailable here.

The main feature of this release is the auto-generation of torrent tags from torrent titles that work in the background. Also, the release contains numerous bug fixes. We’d like to ask you to upgrade and test the version. If you encounter any issues, please let us know. We hope you’ll enjoy the release.

The binaries are available below, or you can download them from the official release page at the GitHub repository:

Note: Some antivirus software falsely flags the Windows 32-bit version of Tribler. When investigating the issue, we found that the Python builder we use (PyInstaller) is being flagged even for a simple hello world program. So, your antivirus might flag Tribler as malware if you’re using the 32-bit version. Therefore, we suggest you use the 64-bit version if you can.

If you encounter any problems using this release, you can create an issue ticket on GitHub or post it here in this forum.

For developers willing to contribute to Tribler with bug fixes or new features, please check out the Tribler contributing page, which provides the basic guidelines.

And as always, you can find the Tribler source code on our Github repository or download it directly.

We hope you’ll enjoy using this version.
