uGet 1.10 Stable - Released! & a Project Update PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 02 September 2012 09:33 | Written by Michael Tunnell

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the latest version of uGet, which is 1.10

 

We are still in the process of updating the website for the latest download files but if you are using the PPA then you will already receive update notifications for the latest version!

 

If you are a .DEB or .RPM user of uGet, thank you for your patience while we update the site.

 

---------------------------------------

 

Also I'd like to announce that we are now working on some Tutorials for uGet and adding a Support Forum to the site. I was reading some reviews on the Ubuntu Software Centre today and noticed that there were a few people not quite sure how to use the program and a few people who were angry about not being able to contact us for support.

 

There are a lot of features that uGet has which a few of those are not the easiest to find on your own. Also I admit my mistake in not noticing the error with the existing support page before now but I will get that taken care of THIS WEEKEND...(good thing it is a holiday, :-) )

 

Have a nice day and happy downloading!

Changelog - 1.10 Entry

* 2012-09-04 updated
  I replace all files by new uget-1.10-2 release.
 
Windows packages:
uget.exe
  This file is uGet 1.10-2 main program only for Windows.
  You can replace old uget.exe by this one.
 
uget-1.10-2-win32.zip
 Compiled binary without GTK3. You need install GTK3 binary and setup PATH to run uget.
 
uget-1.10-2-win32+gtk3.zip
 Compiled binary with GTK3 with some translations.
 You can run uget directly without install. run uget.exe in "bin" directory.
 
uget-1.10-2-win32+gtk3+lang.zip
 This package contains all files in uget-1.10-2-win32-bin+gtk3.zip and more
 GTK3 translation files in share\locale\.

01. Apply a patch to avoid crash in Fedora 17
 
uGet 1.10 (stable)
01. This version need GTK 3.4+ and GLib 2.32+.
02. Add global speed limits for aria2.
03. Add new option "Retrieve timestamp" in Download dialog.
04. Add new option "User Agent" in Download dialog.

11. curl plug-in can keep user specified filename.

14. Fix minor bugs.
 
---------------------------------------
Usage change:
If user does specify filename, plug-ins will use this filename.
otherwise plug-ins will decide filename from remote data.
 
-------------------
aria2 (v1.5) some arguments that can't pass by XML-RPC, you must add below
arguments in Plug-in settings by yourself.
 
"--disable-ipv6=true"   Disable IPv6. (Fedora user may need this)
"--load-cookies=<FILE>" Load cookies from FILE (Firefox3/Chrome/SQLite3 format)
"--check-certificate=false" Disable verify the peer using certificates.
 
-------------------
If you have trouble when you use uget with aria2 (Fedora...etc), I suggest that
user run aria2c in terminal with argument "--enable-rpc=true" first. If you got
"failed to bind port 6800", try to add "--disable-ipv6=true" and run aria2c again.
If it works, add "--disable-ipv6=true" to Arguments entry in Plug-in setting.
 
-------------------
Other useful arguments:
"--save-cookies=<FILE>" Save Cookies to FILE (Mozilla/Firefox(1.x/2.x)/Netscape format).
 
-------------------
aria2 plug-in in uGet v1.10 use below 2 arguments by default:
 
"--continue=true"       continue downloading a partially downloaded file.
"--remote-time=true"    retrieve timestamp of the remote file.
 
---------------------------------------
Some users want to use uGet with FlashGot quietly. In the old nGet you
must add uGet as new download manager and set commandline arguments in
FlashGot. Now the new Commandline Settings is a easy way to do this.
 
uGet apply download settings from category by default but some users
want to use recently download settings when creating new download.
The new option 'Apply recently download settings' is for this case.
Note: The recently download settings will be discard when you quit uGet.
 
How to disable uGet AppIndicator support:
Search <AppIndicator value='1'/> in $HOME/.config/uGet/Setting.xml
and set value='0' to disable AppIndicator. This is function is for
Ubuntu GNOME users who want to use original tray icon logic.
