A note to those who test kde apps building them from sources

if you encounter a problem with unfindable plugins like the one described here, the answer is simple: move fresh plugins to 'qt5' subfolder, e.g. /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins instead of /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/plugins

Update: or pass -DKDE_INSTALL_USE_QT_SYS_PATHS=ON to cmake command (thanks to csslayer for pointing that out)

KTorrent KF5 release

KTorrent for KF5 is available officially, please spread the news.

One known issue that struck many people is downloading to ntfs partition being slow even on ssd (!) and causing ui unresponsiveness (the root cause is inside ntfs driver). In the next release i will introduce an autodetection of ntfs and suggestion to download to a non-ntfs partition with moving files to ntfs after download finishes.

Update: i have found a proper fix for the ntfs problem (i just disabled mmaping codepath for ntfs* and fuseblk filesystems). i'll create a 2.0.1 release of libktorrent tomorrow.
