    Using Tags instead of Categories, this is now possible by configuring a per-tag Initial Save Location, which will be applied when that Tag is assigned to a torrent.

    Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? I'm calling false on that claim.

    Plenty of people — PLENTY of people — are running GTK apps under KDE on a regular basis with no problems. Where there are reports of issues, it usually comes down to not having the proper theme or configuration elements installed from their distro's package management system.

    See, for example, the following two threads from people reporting problems with their GTK applications running under KDE:
    http://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/493869-Gtk-Gnome-apps-are-unstable-with-Opensuse-13-1-kde
    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=843086

    You'll notice that the outcome of both was "SOLVED", and the reporters were able to get their GTK applications working properly under KDE. (And I only just noticed that both happen to involve OpenSUSE, which makes me think the real issue is that their package dependency requirements are lacking.)

    You have to understand that Vuze isn't just "GTK based", it provides a cross-platform native GUI (which, under Linux, means GTK+) via the SWT toolkit because it's WRITTEN IN JAVA. While there _exist_ Java Qt bindings ( http://qt-jambi.org/ ), since Qt changed hands from Trolltech to Nokia they're no longer officially supported and exist only as a community open-source project. I honestly don't know much about Jambi or how well it works, but "write a Qt interface" is exactly the opposite of a trivial suggestion when you're talking about a non-C++ codebase.

    More importantly, it's not required "for Linux", or even for KDE. It is absolutely possible to run Vuze under current KDE, though it may require the installation of some extra packages or configurations to ensure the necessary level of GTK+ support.

    How would that work, exactly? I mean, if the files aren't all in the same directory, it can't really pull them all together into one window. And if they're all in the same place already, then any one of those windows will already contain what you're asking for. So, I suppose Vuze COULD "notice" and suppress the other nine duplicate windows — but why not just click "Show in explorer" on only one of them? After all, you are sort of getting exactly what you asked for, the way it works now.
