This release fixes several startup issues when Tribler GUI freezes during the load screen or shows a “cannot connect to the Tribler Core” error. Some errors are fixed, and for other errors, the feedback dialog should display the reason for a problem so the user can report it to developers.
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.
We hope this release should fix startup issues for many users and allow other users to report the actual reason for startup issues they encountered.
