Dear Tribler Community,
Today we’re releasing Tribler 7.9.0 stable version. This version updates the upgrade process where you can clean older version data and free some storage. We’d like you to try out the version and let us know if you encounter any issues. We hope you’ll like it.
Note: Win32 bit version is falsely flagged by some antivirus software. When investigated the issue, we found that the Python builder we use (PyInstaller) is being flagged even for a simple hello world program. So, it is possible that your antivirus might flag Tribler as malware if you’re using the 32-bit version. Therefore, we suggest you to use 64 bit version if you can.
If you encounter any problems using this release, you can either create an issue ticket in Github (link here) or simply post it here in this forum.
For developers willing to contribute to Tribler with bug fixes or new features please check out this page which provides the basic pointers to get started.
We hope you’ll enjoy using this version.
