I certainly don't want to discourage development at all, but might it be possible to slow down the release rate, perhaps holding on to improvements and bundling them?

There were eight new releases last year, from 1.18 through 1.25, nine the year before that, and it looks like we're starting on that same path again this year.

Some tracker sites want to approve each individual version and release before allowing it. They aren't allowing current versions of Vuze yet either. But this situation where they barely get one approved before there's another one, won't fly.

I think there should be some standards about what's enough of a change to warrant a new release number, and that bugfixes and minor updates don't warrant their own numbers.

In any case, could we try to keep it to two new version releases per year and roll everything into those?

How you said "some tracker sites want to approve each individual version and release before allowing it" is it worth updating to v1.26 yet or should i wait a while till its has been approved by the tracker sites, if the tracker sites have not approved v1.26 yet will the trackers reject it meaning no peer list witch in turn means no down/upload.

It depends on the particular mix of sites that are your personal favorites. If you spend a lot of your download time there, then you will want to stay with a version that they approve.

I should add that the majority of trackers which allow BitComet at all, allow all versions without checking. However, some have had bad experiences with versions of utorrent, reporting-errors that weren't corrected for a very long time and multiple releases (like the entire 1.9x series), so they understandably want to test everything first.

If you do regularly visit such a tracker, and it won't bother you much not to download from that tracker for a while (until your version is approved) then go ahead and upgrade, but you can't continuously keep up with the very latest, or you'll be in perpetual unapproval. You will have to uninstall/reinstall a lot -- the situation I find myself in, testing new versions.This is the very thing I'm hoping to stop.

Not without more info. Start a new topic in the BitComet General area and make sure that you provide all the info required in the "Read This Before Posting" topic.

Then try to explain what you mean by "connect to the Internet", i.e. what type of Internet connection you have and why isn't it on all the time, on what type of disk reside your downloads, and what are the steps you follow before this happens.

Anyone can help me out, i guess from 1.25 and on, my client does not limit download speed any more. I set the speed at 150K, it constantly goes up to more than 200. From my experience, I would like to have that control because of hard disk protection and also avoidance of attention from my administrator. If the team could check the bug, that would be great.
