qBittorrent v4.3.0.1 was released.

This is a minor release to address crashes on Windows related to torrents with URL seeds (HTTP Sources in the qbittorrent window). These crashes were exposed due to boost 1.74. Boost 1.73 doesn't have this problem. However, libtorrent also fixed the issue on their end so the Windows installers use the newer libtorrent code.
The rest of the release is almost the same as v4.3.0 (see changelog). Since other platforms weren't affected only Windows builds will be made available for this version.

v4.3.0.1 changelog:
  • WINDOWS: NSIS: Update Italian translation (bovirus)

qBittorrent 4.4.0 release notes:
WINDOWS:
  • Users of Windows 10+ can also use the Qt6 version of the installer. Qt6 offers better HiDPI compatibility. Known issue: The text on the progress bar may have wrong color or not appear at all. You may switch to the regular version(Qt5 based) until it is resolved. The Qt6 version isn't tested much. The v4.4.x series will probably be the last one that supports Qt5 and therefore Windows 7 and 8. It will see releases at least until the summer of 2022.
LINUX:
  • An AppImage is now offered. It uses the latest versions of Qt6, libtorrent, boost, openssl. It is created on Ubuntu 20.04 and it should work on any other similarly aged distro. It isn't well tested. Also Ubuntu 20.04 is dropped from the PPAs because it doesn't have the minimum required Qt5 version (5.15.2). The AppImage should cover any users left on that version.
MACOS:
  • Builds will be uploaded in the next days. This entry will be updated to contain relevant info, so check back here too.
