DownThemAll: Latest News

Recommended Firefox extension! November 26, 2019

Thanks to Scott DeVaney, who first reached out to me, and “zephyr” from the mozilla Add-ons Editors team and maybe others, who reviewed the extension, DownThemAll! is now listed as a Recommended Firefox extension.

The old DownThemAll! (up to version 3.0) was a long term recommended add-on, too, and I am happy that the WebExtension now is as well.

Recommended means that the mozilla team did a thorough review of DownThemAll!, both in code and basic functionality, and found no issues that would put users at risk, and that the extension does not contain any nasty surprises like undisclosed user tracking either (DownThemAll! does not include any tracking, of course, but now you got it confirmed by mozilla).

It also means that future updates will be thoroughly reviewed by mozilla as well before they get published.

Existing users do not have to do anything, as updates are automatic. New users on Firefox will now see the Recommended badge on the Add-on listing page.

And every user gets to see this when opening the Add-ons page in their Firefox:
Recommended!

DownThemAll! 4.1 September 21, 2019

I am happy to announce the release of DownThemAll! 4.1, which is available for Firefox and Chrome in their corrsponding add-on websites/stores (there is an issue with updating the Opera package).

This new versions introduces a “subfolder” field that allows you to easily toggle download subfolders. Subfolders were possible before using the renaming mask feature, but it was somewhat non-obvious to discover, so based on user feedback, I added the new drop-down.

Additionally, you now have more options to configure the browser button, there is an import and export facility, and other minor new features.

Thanks again to all the volunteer translators, too, who made it possible to bring DownThemAll! to you in your native language.

If your language isn’t available yet, check out the translation guide and consider if you’d be able to help out.

DownThemAll! for Chrome September 10, 2019

Alright, the first official public release for Chrome is live!

Chrome users can get it here! or by clicking the Chrome Store button on our homepage.

Please be aware that if you configured Chrome to “Ask for every download” where to save files, then it will do exactly that, even for DownThemAll! downloads, and will not let us override that, it seems.

Now available for Opera September 8, 2019

Version 4.0.10 is the first version published on the Opera add-ons site.

Get it here

Opera support is in the early stages, and while it seems to work reasonably well, there might be issues I am not aware of yet. Please report any issues you find.

Also, we could still use some more translations. In particular for the Japanese language, as DownThemAll! has many many users the Firefox Add-on stats provided by mozilla indicate. But of course every translation is welcome!
Please see the translation guide in helping out.

PS: A version for Chrome should be available soon, too. It is currently pending review from Google.

DownThemAll! 4 – The WebExtension September 1, 2019

We’re back!

The first version of DownThemAll! 4 was just added to mozilla’s add-on site.

Get it here!

Thanks to all the beta testers, translators and people who helped in other functions. Much appreciated.

Now I hope you’ll give this new DownThemAll! a spin.

We’re still looking for people to translate the extension to their native language. If you’re willing to help and your language isn’t yet available, have a look at our translation guide.

If you find bugs or have suggestions on how to improve things for you, please tell us about it. But please make sure other users did not already report the same issue.

Merry downloading!

PS: Beta testers might have two DownThemAll! icons after installing the version from the mozilla add-ons site. This is expected as the beta and the official version are technically different extensions. Just disable the “DownThemAll! beta” add-on in the add-on manager.

Forth Beta – Now with some translations August 29, 2019

Here is the forth beta of The DownThemAll! WebExtension.

It’s likely the last beta release before I unleash a final full release Version onto the masses in a few days.

Among the important changes and bugfixes are:

  • Fix a bug where upon sorting items in the Selection window the selections would get out of sync
  • New Translations: French (fr), Spanish (es), Polish (pl) and German (de). Thanks to our translators!

If you’d like to help by translating DownThemAll! to your language, we have a preliminary Translation Guide.

Thanks to everybody who reported a bug or suggested a feature!

To install, click downthemall-4.0.4b4.xpi

It is signed by mozilla, so the browser will check if the file is valid, but NOT reviewed other than their automatic reviews.

Please do report bugs and feature requests. But please refer to the TODO list before submitting any feature requests to avoid duplicates.

There are admittedly a lot of features missing that the original DownThemAll! had. Some will come back, others will not as the WebExtension system mozilla forced on the world does not allow for a lot of the advanced stuff.

Please note: I did not add a way for it to update itself. So there are future beta versions, you will have to check back here and update yourself. Also note that once I release a final DownThemAll! 4 it will install alongside the beta.

Beta The Third August 27, 2019

Update: Forth Beta

Here is the third beta version of DownThemAll! 4, the WebExtension.

Among the important changes and bugfixes are:

  • Fix OneClick behavior
  • The button is now a popup menu, but can be configured to be OneClick instead
  • All Tabs actions
  • Support for custom translations and live reloading of translations. This will not help most people but will enable people wanting to translate DTA
  • Other minor cleanups and improvements

Thanks to everybody who reported a bug or suggested a feature!

To install, click downthemall-4.0.3b3.xpi

It is signed by mozilla, so the browser will check if the file is valid, but NOT reviewed other than their automatic reviews.

The final release will happen shortly. Probably in a week, depending on the feedback and bugs you report. This is a rather short beta period, but I want to avoid putting off the release for too long (not years again ;-))

2nd WebExtension Beta August 22, 2019

Update: Forth Beta

Users of the first Beta reported an important bug, where DownThemAll! would fail on some websites or worse almost always when having certain third party extensions installed. Thanks to the reporters for their help also in verifying the fix!

DownThemAll! 4.0.1 Beta 1 – The WebExtensioning August 21, 2019

Update: Forth Beta

Alright, to those who waited a long long time, let me say sorry. Real life did not allow me to go faster.

But here it is, finally: The first public beta version of DownThemAll! 4, and the first DownThemAll! WebExtension at that, so it will install in current Firefox releases (Chrome is not yet supported).

WebExtension source code August 20, 2019

I’ve just made available the source code to the WebExtension at https://github.com/downthemall/downthemall for those curious and maybe even tech savvy enough to run it straight from the code repository. The code repository also has a Readme and a TODO file detailing what to expect.
It is generally working and functional, but I still need to do some additional testing, especially on Windows and Linux and finish up some rough edges and squash some minor bugs (like the “Invalid Date” in the tooltip in the screenshot below).
So it should be a day or two until I will publish a beta version…
I know the wait feels a bit like Duke Nukem Forever by now…. Sorry for that.
