BitTorrent 7.8: Performance and streamlining headline list of improvements
BitTorrent 7.8 gets a dramatic rewrite to its disk i/o, which means noticeable performance gains in multi-tasking. For example, you can delete files from a torrent or move torrents to a new location, but without the usual slow-down in torrent downloading. Or, download torrents to two different drives, but with the speed of downloading to a single drive. You'll notice gains at both low and high speeds, and whether you're writing to local disk, a RAID or a network drive. You'll also experience improvements to the disk subsystem and rate limiter.

Next, we streamlined BitTorrent features by eliminating underused and non-core features, including Apps and Find Content, the dual list view and the "getting started" tab.

Finally, we made a few bug fixes including a fix that noticeably speeds up the rendering of magnet links.

Having a tracker list as large as the one you have decided to put in is a MASSIVE waste of resources.

Clean it up a LOT (and by a lot I mean remove all trackers that weren't in the torrent when you got it)

We don't push new versions to the automatic update system at 100% penetration immediately, we usually wait a bit.

Hi I don't understand but BitTorrent will only download one torrent at a time, and to begin another download I have to exit the program and restart it. All other downloads sit at "0.0% Checked" status and will not download unless I restart program.

Torrents also don't download in order of queue. What is wrong?

Same problem as ftwilight - only one torrent downloads at a time with others at status of "Checked 0.0%". Any suggestions?

I can't install latest version 7.8 build 29463 because can't press "Next" button at first screen (step 1/4) after launch "BitTorrent.exe" and also can't close this window by pressing "x" button, only task manager can help me. My last version was 7.7.3 and I can't update it to last stable with "Check for updates" so, I delete my old version w/o deleting settings and torrents and download new, but I can't install it. Also checking to install my old version, and it install correctly, but in new one I can't accept licence agreement by pressing "Next" button.
Spoiler

Checked 0.0% is still a problem with 7.6 build # 29545. How about a 7.9?
