Tuesday, 04 March 2014 19:05 | Written by Michael Tunnell

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the latest version of uGet, 1.10.4. We have been able to update uGet in various Repos throughout the Linux community so you should be able to just install or upgrade from your preferred Ditros' supported repository. A few distros are not currently up to date but you can check the status of your preferred distribution by going to the uGet Downloads page and selecting your distro from there for more details.


Before I get to the "What's New" portion of this blog post I wanted to first explain the "bit of Celebration" part of the title. This year marks the 11th Year of uGet, that's right, uGet has been available to the Linux community for over 11 years now and we are not slowing down, we are excited for the future of uGet! If you're excited too then please consider donating to the project. :) (blog post about the donation drive)


Updated on March 5th, 2014:

Earlier today someone asked if we had any screenshots of older versions of uGet and I thought "well that actually might be cool to upload all of the screenshots to the could have I not of thought of that before?" So I did just that, I have uploaded screenshots of multiple versions and when I have time I would like to do more but for now there are screenshots for versions 1.10.4, 1.10.3, 1.7.6, 1.6.0, 1.5.0, 0.8, and 0.5.


Now for the What's New + some info about uGet's future...
