We are proud to release the final DownThemAll! 1.0.
Over a year went by since we last released a major version, and a lot has changed in between:
- Nils joined the team.
- A lot of effort was taken to consolidate the code and make it more stable, even if this meant a rewrite/redesign of large chunks of it.
- We tried to increase performance where possible and worked towards supporting larger chunks.
- The user interface got a visual refresh.
- Some new features got implemented as well.
- And a lot of testers helped us find and fix lots bugs. Thank you!
- A lot of people from BabelZilla located all alround the world again translated DownThemAll!. Thank you!
Enough words for now… Here is the release. Enjoy 😀
