qBittorrent 3.3.9 Open-Source BitTorrent Client Adds New DHT Bootstrap Node

After being in development for the last three months, qBittorrent 3.3.8 is here as the latest and most advanced stable version of the popular torrent and magnet downloader, implementing initial support for newer libtorrent APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) from the upcoming 1.1.x branch, which is currently in development. While qBittorrent 3.3.8 looks like a bugfix release, there’s also a new feature added, namely a brand-new Distributed Hash Table (DHT) bootstrap node implementation, which is maintained by the creator of the open-source libtorrent library. Also, qBittorrent now lets users disable the download of tracker’s favicon.
