qBittorrent 3.1.9 Update 1 Released

This is a quick tutorial on how to install qBittorrent 3.1.9 on Ubuntu 14.04. qBittorrent is an open source project that provides users with a capable BitTorrent client that comes loaded with all the modern functionality necessary for daily torrenting which includes an integrated search engine, web interface, sequential download support, bandwidth scheduler, RSS support and other useful features.

qBittorrent was released yesterday (28/04/2014) and according to the developer, this was released as an excuse to produce new builds with an OpenSSL version that isn’t affected by the heartbleed bug for Windows and Mac. This bug should only affect the WebUI and only if HTTPS/SSL authentication was enabled.
