About qBittorrent

Aug 27, 2020. Our pick: BitTorrent. One of the longest-running torrent clients still seeing active development today.

The qBittorrent project aims to provide an open-source software alternative to µTorrent.

  • PicoTorrent is a tiny, hackable BitTorrent client. ℹ️ Full release notes in the blog - Behind the release - v0.20. In a nutshell 🐿. Rasterbar-libtorrent has been updated to 2.0. This adds real v2 and v1+v2 hybrid torrent.
  • The following is a general comparison of BitTorrent clients, which are computer programs designed for peer-to-peer file sharing using the BitTorrent protocol. The BitTorrent protocol coordinates segmented file transfer among peers connected in a swarm.A BitTorrent client enables a user to exchange data as a peer in one or more swarms.

Additionally, qBittorrent runs and provides the same features on all major platforms (FreeBSD, Linux, macOS, OS/2, Windows).


qBittorrent is based on the Qt toolkit and libtorrent-rasterbar library.
