The uGet team has been rather mysterious for quite a long time to a point that most people who have heard of uGet are not aware of the size of the team or lack thereof much less the individuals working on the project. This mystery was essentially an accident because we didn't think it was very important for people to know who was working on uGet but that all they needed to know that someone was. I realized that was a bit misguided because people like to know who develops the software they use and some may even want to express their gratitude for such software. Not to mention, there may be some developers out there that may see there is room for them to join the team.


We have decided to pull back the curtain and tell people who we are and what we do for the project. Also we are using this opportunity to credit and thank the people who make contributions to the project, such as language translators.


Everyone who contributes to the project is greatly appreciated whether that be from developers to translators, from donators to bug reporters and everyone else...but there are some people who go beyond and contribute a significant amount of time and effort to the project and the following page also features them as well as the official team.

Ambiance Tray Icons


Radiance Tray Icons


First of all, I would just like to apologize again for missing this before the release of 1.10.3 but unfortunately we didn't so until we can address this and release a permanent fix, I decided to package up the icons separately for those who would like to use them as soon as possible. This download is just a quick fix and will require root to overwrite the existing icons. You'll find the download and the How To after the break...

uGet Feature List Updated, a lot bigger than I thought PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 19 January 2013 08:12 | Written by Michael Tunnell

I'm going to admit something to you all here...I can be kind of lazy sometimes. I know...shocking, right? Anyway, when I was creating the new website I noticed that the homepage wouldn't support all the features of uGet so I just listed about 10 and lazily ended it wtih "many more". When it came to adding all the features to the Features page, I took the lazy route and just copy and pasted the homepage text on that page. (I know, what is the point of the page then)


Yesterday I was hanging out on Twitter and noticed a lot of people posting about all the different features provided by various Linux download managers as if there a ton of features being provided and I couldn't help but think "well that is only a third of what uGet has"...then it dawned on me, "I never freaking added the features list to the Features page". Of course, I started to get a bit mad at myself but instead I decided to just get it done so everyone can see the VAST list of features available in uGet.


So if you go to the Features page now you will see an exhaustive list but still not complete list. Honestly, there are a couple features in uGet that I am not 100% sure of what they do so once I figure those out I'll add those too.


For our loyal uGet advocates who try to share the app with their friends and family but get the response of "there aren't many feature" to you I would like to say "Sorry about that, maybe now you can blow their minds."


Do you have a comment or feedback about this blog post? Want to yell at me for procrastinating on this for so long?
