If this is not stealth, what are the changes made? And this information along with whether stealth are not in the application description. Also the uncompressed size is around 19MB now.

I tested qBittorrent Portable. It's stealth, as expected from a PortableApps.com app. I edited the entry accordingly.

Size updated.

Just a note that qBittorrent has also come a long way and now looks really sharp on Mac and PC. Think I might switch from my long time favorite client Transmission for Mac, which hasn't been updated in over a year and tends to crash on exit.

@webfork
It seems that an official Windows version of Transmission is coming soon:

While an official portable version of qBittorrent is not likely to be released soon despite many users have requested it:

I've been testing this on two platforms and so far very please. A major missing piece over the previous downloader is the ability to download some files inside an archive but not others. Right now only has "download sequentially" or "download first and last piece first".

Great news. Mainly I'm just happy to see some activity: the Mac version needs help.

I agree that would be ideal but so far the unofficial version is working well.

This is something I stumbled upon today; no idea of the implications:

Thanks for the article, Deluge web-site and both Deluge and qBittorrent forums now off-line.

To be clear, it was just the forums of both sites that got hacked and not necessarily the programs themselves. Regardless this is a real blow for both programs as alternatives to standard BitTorrent, uTorrent, and Vuse. Even the smell of a hack tends to push people way from a program/project.

Until there is internet there will be hacks- such things happens almost daily as hacking has become an industry (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hacking_Team). I can't see a logical reason why a product should be avoided if its support forum has been hacked (as far as I know this happened even to Kaspersky Lab).

In testing, I'm so far happy with qBitTorrent but it's inability to let you select items inside a torrent to download or not download means that it won't replace Transmission. That's a feature I can't live without.

Do you mean this?

Since I'm not an english native speaker that is confusing. I see "its" or "it's" used indistinctly where I believe you should use "its". Or "its" is more formal?

"It's" means "it is". Webfork should have written "its inability".
