We are excited to announce the immediate availability of the latest version of uGet, version 2.0.10. We've also have a new release on the development branch, beta version 2.1.6. I've been working on a new website for uGet that is coming very soon as well as a brand new support system that will be launched concurrently. If you're curious what all we've done in these releases check out the rest of this blog post and the changelog attached.

"It's really Awesome and 11 Years of any Open Source application is Extremely Respectable..."


We'd like to thank Chris Fisher & Matt Hartley of the Linux Action Show from Jupiter Broadcasting for featuring uGet as their Desktop App Pick for season 31 episode 03 that aired on March 9th, 2014. The segment was a 4 minutes and 20 seconds long demo of uGet for a lot of the great features. There were a few features that I wish were mentioned (multi-connection, theme chameleoning,  multi-mirror, etc) but nothing to complain about. :)


Anyway, it was great to have uGet featured on the largest Linux Podcast and it just gets us more excited for the future of uGet! Click read more below for an embedded video of the demo.

You may or may not...well probably not aware that the uGet project has been around for over 11 years! uGet started in January 2003 and has been constantly and consistently improving the app and landscape of Linux Download Managers. Throughout the 11 Years, we have never had a donation drive before and I thought it might be about that time to have one...

A Lot Updates to PDF Print E-mail

We are making a lot of progress with the project recently which includes many things like releasing another version with some new features, updating uGet in various Repositories across the Linux World (that was a lot more effort than I expected) and because of this progress I thought it would be a good idea to do some updates to the website.


Updated on March 12th, 2014:

So far today, I have updated the About page a bit, updated the FAQs to reorganize them and add not FAQs, and finally the next thing on the agenda is the Documentation section. :)


Updated on March 10th, 2014:

I have just finished creating the new "Contribute Translations" page that will explain to translators or future translators how to participate in the translation / localization of uGet via Transifex.


Updated on March 9th, 2014:

I just finished the new Contributions section / menu for contributing various things to the uGet project...though there are some more pages to add to this section. I'm extra happy about this because I finished this just in time for uGet to be featured on the Linux Action Show. :)


Updated on March 7th, 2014:

I have just added a new Changelog page to the uGet website, I am also working on some more new features to the site today.


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.

uGet User Survey PDF Print E-mail

We are releasing 1.10.4 officially later today so I am posting this to let all the uGetters know that the uGet Project is running a User Survey to find out more about our users. The information gathered in the survey will help us with the future of uGet as well as potentionally new ideas and features to improve uGet overall. Just for clarification, there may be some questions that do not apply to everyone so if a question doesn't apply to you then just skip the question.


If you think of a question that we should add feel free to let us know in the comments below and we'll consider adding it. We are just trying to learn a bit about our community in the hope of making it even better and making uGet even better.
