KTorrent 2.2.5 and 3.0rc1 are out
The release of KTorrent 3.0 is coming closer and closer, 3.0rc1 will probably be the last release before 3.0. It contains many bugfixes and some new feature additions. It is a big improvement over the beta, and should be stable and ready enough for day to day usage.

Alternative flat list mode to display the files of a torrent

Isn't that still bloated client not worthy of attention just like the rest of KDE4 pack for the matter of...?

While I was always fan of lightweight desktop environments (xfce, or even just some customized WM is enough) I think torrent client as a part of it is completely unnecessarily as well. Torrent client should be not dependable on specific DE binaries. Especially not on a bloated one as KDE.

Well some KDe users enjoy that bloated torrent client even though it's kinda good for nothing.Vuze is bloated but at least we have extreme mod.

A modded KTorrent will be wonderful ,

It could be an useful second option instead of Transmission

Don't forget the windows support which transmission doesn't have atm.:wink2:

That's true but with KTorrent you have to install the KDE environment for windows. Alot like java/.net thing with bloat like shadowww said. It's not exactly native... or not that I'm aware of.

Incorrect. KDE is not a runtime the way Java or .Net are: it is a set of libraries, and programs that use those libraries, written in C++. Also, it uses the native theme if it is installed on Windows or OSX, making it look like a normal platform-specific app for those OSes. You don't need to install all of KDE to use KTorrent; you just need the core libraries, the multimedia libraries (if you want the mediaplayer plugin), and the PIM libraries (if you want feed support).

You don't even need to install them separately; the installer handles the dependencies for you.

(Sorry for the double post, but since I'm unregistered I can't edit my post)

I forgot: On linux, KDE (and all Qt4 apps in fact) can also be set to use whatever the current GTK theme is.
