how to install newest Qbittorrent v. 4.3.9?

how to install newest version 4.3.9 of qBittorrent on dietpi?
i know that I can copmlie it but it is 40 minutes on Rpi 4.
I can use Docker but I don’t want to use it.

I don’t see other options as to compile it yourself or to use docker if you like qBittorrent 4.3.9. We install the package from Debian repository and there is no other version
how to install from Sid branch?

theoretically you could add it as additional source list but there you would need to know what you are doing. As this would require as well correct package pinning for Qbittorrent. Otherwise you are running the risk that your system is going to try to update all your packages from sid repository.

Some googling and i found this.

Could somebody check my tutorial.
