The second 2.7.2 beta has dropped. Here are the highlights:
The Milestones send out a notification when it triggers, but you can know scroll through the trigger history and see when each Milestone was triggered in the past.
Support for network offloading
A lot of new computers can do network offloading in the network interface, which means the network traffic handles differently in the OS. The client used to ignore that in certain hardware configurations, making the network counter inaccurate. This version should fix that, but testing and feedback is very welcome!
Version number confusion
Previously, we versioned the beta versions like ‘2.7.1-1431’ which translated into ‘2.7.2b2’ for internal reasons (the updater). Those reasons were nullified, so we could actually use ‘2.7.2b2’ inside the client. This makes it a lot easier for you to know which beta version you’re on.
This also fixes the continuous “there’s an update!” message that was in 2.7.2b1.
There’s a bit more in 2.7.2b2, have a look at the Changes below to get a full list.
You can also use the updater if you have the “check for betas” option enabled.
Download seems very accurate, upload looks like a bit to good. WhatPulse shows 6.5MB/s and up to 7MB/s, while actual usage is around 5.5MB/s (checked with uTorrent, NetWorx, and my router (no other PCs, phones, … connected) speed counter
Aaah, damn it. Sorry… Just read “Beta 2”. Maybe consider using the build ID instead of “Beta X”?
Besides, how to report a bug? I’ve unticked “Open main window on start”, yet WP always opens upon any Windows reboot…
