Interface changes

New Console

  • Improved New Console performance by anywhere from 6x to infinity depending on number of torrents, reducing cpu and ram usage and improving responsibility, especially for larger amount of torrents
  • Redid searching in New Console - search by typing and scroll through results with up/down keys, PgUp, PgDown, Home and End. You can directly enter detail view or action menu. Close with '/' or removing all text and pressing left arrow
  • Don't reset cursor position when returning from detail view
  • Improved sorting in New Console - sort by queue/name by default rather than just by queue, leaving other torrents ordered randomly
  • Added scrolling with PgUp/PgDown/Home/End to torrent detail view
  • Added scrolling with j/k to detail view to match behavior of all torrents view
  • Redid selecting folders in detail view to select files inside a folder and highlight the directory (in different color if not everything inside is selected)
  • Redid torrent info display in detail view to show more information in less space. Also, color coded it and made only take up as much space as needed (and never less)
  • Added formatting to some popups
  • Added colors to status bar
  • Added scrolling to event log
  • Got rid of three dots symbol as well as infinity symbol (it's replaced with '-')
  • Changed which columns are displayed by default and their sizes so it's more optimized for smaller terminals
  • Updated help strings, added some formatting
  • Added scrolling to different popup types, changed slider to red # symbol for visibility. Fixed misc problems with it
  • Added colors to priority popup in detail view
  • Mapped delete key to remove torrent dialog
  • Made selection move along with selected torrents upon changing queue (optional)
  • Added new control types to input popups, misc. in-code changes


  • Added colors and other formatting to most commands
  • Added colors to help
  • Redid info command to be more concise and readable by default. Old behavior can be invoked with -v
  • Changed peer/file listing in info command (now under -d switch)
  • Made file completion in add command only show torrent files and sort by file modification date
  • Improved completion - it now only lists a limited number of torrents per tab press (configurable, optional)
  • Made completion properly escape spaces in torrent names and paths
  • Made torrent name completion partially case-insensitive
  • Added coloring to tab completion
  • Duplicate commands are not saved multiple times (optional)
  • Added remove word option via Alt+Backspace
  • Added moving cursor through text with Ctrl+Left/Right


  • Made events always output to both legacy and event log

  • Fixed flickering when switching modes
  • Fixed 'command -h' crapping out in Legacy
  • Fixed Shift+Q not shutting down the daemon properly
  • Fixed torrents not disappearing after being removed
  • Fixed some problems related to events that caused backtraces to be printed to the screen, crapping display out
