You could build it yourself :)

It wasn't published because there's a delay in getting code signing certificate. As soon as we get it the build will be there on transmissionbt.com. Unfortunately there's no ETA on this.

Releasing non-signed package is an option as well, but I'd rather not, or at least not on transmissionbt.com.

Is it due to lack of funding for payment or something like that?

Is it going to be a beta or a stable build?

Will you put up a Windows subforum on this board as soon as it's up?

No, it's not related to money in any way.

While we wait for the certificate we initially planned to use for signing, the build will most likely be signed with my personal certificate and be released along with 2.91 in a few days. It'll be a beta release, no changes there, mostly because it's the first official release ever and even though it's based on Qt client and lots of existing code there's still lots of newly written code which wasn't tested in the wild.

As for subforum(s), I guess we'll see how it goes...

The windows 2.91 (14710) x64 beta build just crashes on launch for me on Windows 10 x64.

The x86 build appears to work fine though.

edit: Just created a fresh Win7 x64 vm, installed vs2015 x64 redist and the Transmission 2.91 x64 beta, crashes on it as well.

Damn, you're fast :) Yeah, it's an issue in QtDBus module; I've fixed it in x86 build but not yet in x64. Working on this now.

You shouldn't have to install redist youself though, part of needed files is included in the installer, another part is in Windows KB2999226.

The Windows builds have been posted here but not on the homepage. Why not? Because of the OSX malware issue?

Yea I just installed the redist on the VM to quickly get the UCRT without going through windows update.

No crashes for me with that build on the exact same OS.

No, OS X issue is unrelated. The links will be posted shortly, all in its time ;)

Can we get a Windows subforum on this board when the links get posted? The new Windows port is big news and many people are going to want to come and discuss it.

related messages are:

Code: Select all

Could not connect to tracker (C:\Repositories\trunk\libtransmission\announcer.c:996)
Scrape error: Could not connect to tracker (C:\Repositories\trunk\libtransmission\announcer.c:1279)
BTW, because the private tracker supports both http and https, after I modified the tracker from https to http, it worked.
But this isn't an issue on cygwin build and that 3rd party transmission-qt from sourceforge.

I can confirm this. HTTPS trackers are unreachable with the current 2.92 Windows build.
