We've fixed a huge number of bugs reported by users worldwide, we've made the application consume 84% less cpu/battery, we've improved our search algorithms, and we've added an amazing new source of free and legal content: archive.org, which indexes millions of public domain and creative commons works and which gives results back in the form of HTTP downloadables and .torrent downloadables.

we only have about 6 different Android devices to test so we need your support
on finding and reporting any last minute bugs before the release
