QuickBox Pro v2.3.3

Originally published at: https://quickbox.io/changelogs/quickbox-pro-v2-3-3/

This release is scheduled for Tuesday, July 7, 2020.

This version is considered a maintenance/enhancement release. We’ve been hunting down some leftover bugs and making sure to get them squashed with this release, but that’s not all! With this release comes support for Ubuntu 20.04 [focal] along with some additional enhancements that we’re pretty happy with. One of the biggest changes has been on the core level (once again). This adjustment comes in the form of the System Response widget that users see when installing an application. Previous iterations have been implementing the same table for all users, this has led to some overlapping of info. An example would be when the system admin updates quickbox, other users then see the “QuickBox update completed” message. We’ve now built and assigned a table to individual users so now users will only see response messages pertaining to their own use. How great!

We’ve also been working hard to update the technologies that applications such as qBittorrent and Deluge use. As you may know, Deluge is now in full support of python3 as well as libtorrent1.2 libraries. With this release we now have them built as such. Since python2 is on it’s way out, it’s important that we update these things accordingly. As a side note, any applications not yet supporting python3 within the next couple of releases will be seeing a sunset within QuickBox until the developers finalize their own conversions, but we’ll worry about that when the time comes 😉

Not only are we updating libtorrent and python on builds for various applications, we are working to restructure the base directory of the torrent clients. This is a means to keep users home directories a bit tidier and without loose directories sitting outside of the specific clients ~/torrents directories. You can review those adjustments below. Just for those wondering about current structures in place, these are not going to be adjusted in any way for existing users as we don’t want to touch pre-existing directories for users files, this will only apply to newly created users.

For more on this release, check the changelog below. Remember, if you find anything out of the ordinary just drop us a ticket or let us know on Discord. We thrive on users reports and work to make adjustments as quickly as possible… it’s the QuickBox way and keeps us all involved and an ever growing solution to make our lives just a bit easier!

Most importantly: Stay Human! 💓
