- Change: User-Agent for web usage is now "BTWebClient/" plus uT version
- Change: Added a tracker and transfers tab to help spread out the information a bit
- Change: uTorrent now fetches paths using shfolder.dll so that it can get the correct APPDATA path for Windows 95. If you are on a similar system you will need to download shfolder.dll from Microsoft if you do not have a later version of Internet Explorer installed.
- Change: Change addtorrent dialog treeview into a listview so it can be sorted + have a selection rectangle et al.
- Change: uTorrent now uses the user's download folder on Vista by default, rather than the custom %HOMEPATH%\Downloads

- Change: RSS feeds listed in category view, items in main window
- Change: Removed now-redundant feeds and releases tabs from RSS Downloader window
- Change: RSS button on toolbar now brings up Add Feed dialog
- Change: rss.filters_use_default_dir determines if default download folder is used for filter matches when filter or settings do not specify a download path
- Change: do not use adapter subnets to detect local peers. seems to result in many false-positives
- Change: Add torrent uses .torrent storage path as default search path
- Change: allow a manual reannounce every max(60 seconds, min_interval) where min_interval is from the tracker
- Change: remove non-US supporting site from search list
- Change: queue RSS feed updates
- Change: ";" no longer separates skip files in Create Torrent since it is a valid filename character in Windows
- Change: no more blank white screen when the WebUI is not installed, instead an informative message and a link (also 404s for other resource requests)
- Fix: Implement ability to change trackers for a torrent from webui
- Fix: When creating a .torrent file, all files are now sorted regardless of file system
- Fix: Logic error where it would not copy the .torrent to the storage path if only part of the path was matched
- Fix: Bug where BT backend didn't take into account alt .torrent storage path
- Fix: "&" characters in label names within the main download list context menu no longer become accelerators and display normally
- Fix: Last line of ipfilter.dat is loaded if it does not end with a carriage return
- Fix: Close file handles during hashchecking, instead of all at the end

Developer Note:
And yes, it says BETA in the program, and will even report to trackers as a BETA, but it is really an ALPHA (we really do need some kind of facility for alphas, but until that happens....).
