We are proud to release the forth preview of the upcoming next major version of DownThemAll!.
More than 1 year of development passed since the last major version. This was mostly due to time constraints, as DownThemAll! is still developed by a small team of three as a hobbyist project.
Lots of new features and refinements went into the preview releases, such as speed limits, mirror management, fine-grained connection control, text-link recognition and many more. As of now the 2.0 series can be considered feature-complete. Beta 4 may still contain bugs, but should be ready for daily use in general. However, right now only English translations are shipped.
Beta 4 is furthermore the first release to be digitally signed (by Nils Maier). If you have any problems due to this, please refer to the Adblock Plus signing related installation troubles page.
We’re currently focused on putting new website infrastructure in place and getting 2.0 ready to be translated.
A heads up to fellow developers and Nightly Builds users: I just created a 2.0.x branch, while the “trunk” will continue as “2.1alpha”. If you’d like to follow 2.0.x, you should grab the 2.0.x Nightly instead of the trunk one.
Please report any issues you find back to our bug tracker.
Thanks for testing!
Update (2010/10/14): The initially released version had the wrong extension id, leading to Firefox thinking this was another extension hence resulting in having both an old dTa! and the new beta4 installed simultaneously. I just released a corrected beta4 (same location).
If you installed beta4 yesterday or today, please uninstall that version and reinstall the new release.
