qBittorrent is a cross-platform client for the BitTorrent protocol that is released under the GNU GPL, version 2. qBittorrent aims to be a free and open-source software alternative to popular clients such as μTorrent.
qBittorrent is written in C++, and thus is a native application. It uses Boost, Qt toolkit (version 4 or 5), and libtorrent-rasterbar library (for the torrent back-end). Its optional search engine is written in Python, so systems without a Python implementation installed cannot use that.
