Version 7.0.1 Version 7.0.0
  • Release Date: Jan 26, 2018
Version 6.5.2 Version 6.5.1 Version 6.5.0
  • Release Date: Feb 16, 2016
  • Download(s):
    • Support for recent versions of Windows
    • Support for recent versions of OSX
    • Support for non ASCII user names on Windows (OSX and Linux where already supported)
    • More miscellaneous fixes for unicode named torrents, files and paths.
    • Fixes for the builtin player initialization when leftover files from old versions of VLC where left on Windows.
    • Improved tunnel community usability (for people that just don't read popup windows and blindly click on "accept") Not the exit node feature can only be toggled from the settings panel, so people don't get in trouble as easily.
    • Some performance improvements and bug fixes on the anontunnel community, tunneled downloads should be more stable now.
    • Tunneled downloads will use both end to end encrypted and exit node terminated circuits when downloading concurrently instead of trying a pure end to end encrypted download and then falling back to tunneled download after a couple of minutes.
    • There's a "safe seeding" mode now which will seed your downloaded torrents through the tunnel community only. This can be enabled even for plain downloads.
    • The automatically added tunneled download test torrent has been disabled.
    • Collected torrents are now stored in a levelDB database, which should help a lot with disk usage, IO performance and filesystem fragmentation.
    • Fixed several download state switching issues.
    • Download bandwidth settings are now applied to all download modes (tunneled, and plain) but accounted for separately.
    • Bundled libtorrent and libvlc got upgraded (Windows and OSX, on Linux it uses the system's version).
    • Fixed adding torrent urls via the search bar.
    • All releases are cryptographically signed now.
    • Bittorrent opportunistic encryption for plain downloads is enabled now.
    • A bunch of minor usability improvements and fixes.

Version 6.4.1
  • Release Date: Dec 30, 2014
  • Download(s):
  • This release contains critical security updates. PLEASE UPDATE from V6.4.0 to V6.4.1.
    • The anonymity in V6.4.0 did not function properly.
    • Users are advised to only enable anonymous downloading in V6.4.1 it if they understand the implications stated within the on-screen advisory.
    • Our experimental hidden seeding feature did not perform adequately. You are likely to function as a exit node for the traffic of other users. We are deeply sorry for this. We're working hard on fixing this issue, but that will take significant amount of work. We will make Tribler exit nodes explicit in the future and reward them (issue #23 in Github).
    • We want to get this right. We are very grateful for the help that security expert "Yawning Angel" is giving us. All critical issues raised by him/her are either fixed or are being working on. Especially the advise to replace our simplistic AES-ECB with AES-GCM saved us quite some development time. You can track our progress at: https://github.com/Tribler/tribler/issues/1066
Version 6.4.0

  • Download(s):
    • Experimental anonymous downloading feature enabled
    • Major stability improvements
    • Dedicated anontunnel dispersy community
    • Experimental hidden seeding services now should work
    • Torrent database cleanup when upgrading database (it may take a while if your megacache is big)
    • Dropped Swift dependency
    • Thumbnails temporarily disabled
    • Torrent files are now transfered trough a TFTP-like protocol instead of Swift
    • If the database/megacache migration fails for some reason, it will be moved aside and Tribler will start from scratch instead of just crashing
    • Dispersy DB cleanup
    • During DB migration, any found leftover torrent file will be automatically imported into Tribler and the corrupt/duplicate ones will be dropped
    • Make bootstrap a bit more aggressive so Tribler gets to a working state a bit faster

Version 6.1.0
  • Release Date: Apr 19, 2013

  • Throttling (Bandwidth limitation) is working again.
  • The LibSwift engine has been updated too.
  • The "Save as" dialog has been modified to improve usability when downloading from magnet links.
  • Thumbnails for downloaded media: Now when a new video file gets downloaded, Tribler will automatically create a thumbnail and make it available to the rest of peers to be shown on the search results for all the media you download from your favourite open channels.
  • Fixed freezing at startup on some machines.
  • Fixed race conditions and lockups in synchronizations.
  • Various bug fixes and minor improvements.
