The qBittorrent project aims to provide a free software alternative to µtorrent. qBittorrent is an advanced, cross-platform BitTorrent client with a nice user interface as well as a web UI for remote control and a built-in search engine. qBittorrent aims to meet the needs of most users while using as little CPU and memory as possible. qBittorrent is a true Open Source project, and as such anyone can and should contribute.

qBittorrent Features:

  • Polite µTorrent-like user interface
  • Well integrated and extendable search engine
  • Simultaneous search in the most famous BitTorrent search sites
  • Category-specific search queries (e.g. books, music, movies)
  • All Bittorrent Extensions
  • DHT, Peer Exchange, Full Encryption, Magnet/BitComet URI, …
  • Remote control via web user interface
  • Almost identical to the standard UI, all in Ajax
  • Advanced control of trackers, peers and torrents
  • Torrent queuing and prioritization
  • Selection and prioritization of torrent content
  • Support UPnP / NAT-PMP port forwarding
  • Available in ~25 languages ​​(Unicode support)
  • Torrent creation tool
  • Advanced RSS support with upload filters (including regex)
  • Bandwidth Planner
  • IP filtering (eMule and PeerGuardian compatible)
  • IPv6 Compliant
  • Available on most platforms: Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, OS/2, FreeBSD

qBittorrent 4.4.1 Release Notes:


  • Windows 10+ users can also use the Qt6 version of the installer. Qt6 offers better HiDPI compatibility. Known issue: Progress bar text may have the wrong color or not appear at all. You can upgrade to the standard version (based on Qt5) until it is resolved. The Qt6 version is not much tested. The v4.4.x series will likely be the last to support Qt5 and therefore Windows 7 and 8. It will see releases until at least summer 2022.


  • An AppImage is now available. It uses the latest versions of Qt6, libtorrent, boost, openssl. It is created on Ubuntu 20.04 and should work on any other distro of similar age. It is not well tested. Also, Ubuntu 20.04 is removed from the PPAs because it lacks the minimum required version of Qt5 (5.15.2). The AppImage should cover all remaining users on that version.


  • The builds will take a few days to download.
