Tribler release 7.12.1-RC4 is out

  • This release fixes an error on Tribler startup when Tribler has a large number of active torrents;
  • The startup speed should be much faster in case of a large number of torrents;
  • The token balance is hidden until the balance algorithm is updated;
  • Some other errors were fixed.

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 this release should fix startup issues for many users and allow other users to report the actual reason for startup issues they encountered.
