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.

Good job, I've been looking forward to a kf5-based KTorrent.

Thanks for your great work! Nice to finally have a KF5 port of KTorrent... :)

One question: Has the speed graph from KDE4 version been removed, or is it just me that can't find it?

Why can qBittorrent download to NTFS with no problem then?

Nick Shaforostoff комментирует...

yes, apparently qBittorrent doesn't use memory mapping (mmap and munmap), just plain QFile

Nick Shaforostoff комментирует...

actually, can someone confirm that commenting 'if (!OpenFileAllowed())' line (making the next 'return 0;' being executed unconditionaly) in cachefile.cpp makes ntfs download work fine?

Can you please consider making the newer libktorrent parallel-installable with the older kde4-based libktorrent? Latest version of kget included in kde-applications 16.04 still uses the older one. I'll file a bug about it with details.

Nick Shaforostoff комментирует...

i think it is easier to port kget to kf5 and new libktorrent (the api itself hasn't changed much)

Thanks for your work!

Is the following bug finally fixed, by the way?

I can't check the latest version of Ktorrent now, but when I checked this 2 weeks ago, the then up-to-date Archlinux Ktorrent still had this bug.
