It doesn't make sense to add support for dc++ for be able to detect every single type of unfinished download from other programs, people should just be smart enough to not share that kind of thing. Is there anything particularly obvious about the name of a non finished torrent file?

Re: tabs windows and OS

Even though windows has it's window tabs in the bottom, i just felt that it would be more natural to have the window tabs at the top. Because you are in fact jumping between the top window pane. The bottom upload/download status field is more or less static. Therefore it is unnatural to have these ...
