Version 4.0.1-pre1 41.9 kB Works with Firefox 14.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.11 and later

Version 4.0.0.1-signed 42.0 kB Works with Firefox 14.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.11 and later

  • I removed support for Gecko versions prior than 14.0. As OpenDownload² has been "feature-complete" for a while now, older versions won't need any further updates just to use the "Run" button anyway. (Given that Firefox 14.0 shouldn't be widely spread anymore; even most Linux distributions should already have a newer version.) This change allowed me to finally drop a lot of old, badly implemented code which I subsequently did. Yay!
  • Under certain circumstances the cleanup routine could throw exceptions where it didn't necessarily have to. Fixed.
  • Wrapped the language variables into objects.
  • Support for recent SeaMonkey versions adequately fixed (thanks, mike).
  • OpenDownload² had the habit to download everything twice. Accidentally fixed it while tracking down a Pale Moon issue.
  • Added locale(s): ru-RU (thanks, Iain Roberts!).

Version 3.5.1.1-signed 44.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later

* I missed quite some things on Gecko 26+. Fixed, sorry. This is what 3.5.0 already should have been. (Thanks, Tobi.)
* added locale: zh-TW by Chris Chan
* using osfile.jsm for guessing the temporary directory now

Version 3.5.0.1-signed 42.7 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later

Fixed Gecko 26+ compatibility (using the new download manager interface).

Random note: I had to rewrite large code parts again just to restore compatibility with the new API which completely dropped the "old" download queue just for the sake of it. This could or could not have broken compatibility with different platforms than MS Windows. Please report any occurring issues on mozillaZine. Thank you!

Version 3.4.3.1-signed 42.2 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later

Hopefully fixed missing "Run" buttons on weird occasions (partially reverted some v3.4.2 changes, sorry for the inconveniences).

Version 3.4.2.1-signed 42.3 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later

  1. OpenDownload² is now licensed under the 2-clause BSD license.
  2. the "Run" button is not added if the file is a ZIP file or a similar "pseudo-executable" file (there's the "Open with default application" radio button instead)
  3. OpenDownload² has an icon now. Please worship it.

Version 3.4.1.1-signed 32.5 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later

* v3.4.0 code changes broke error handling; fixed by replacing "alert()" by logging to the console (thanks to roman200).
* partially reverted code changes in 3.4.0 (broke the actual launching of files on *ix systems)

Version 3.4.0.1-signed 32.2 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later

* fixed quite a bunch of compatibility warnings (rewrote large code parts for that - mostly internal changes)
* removed "old" fallback launching code (declared insecure)

Version 3.3.1.1-signed 31.4 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later

* removed some MIME type workaround; will less likely show the Run button now if the file is not actually runnable
* OD² will check the validity of the downloadPath config entry when it is found
* removed maximum of 20 copies of a file, added logging instead
* slashes will only be added if they are missing (avoids "//" and "\\" before the actual file name)

Version 3.3.0.1-signed 31.0 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later

* Added the long-awaited feature to change the download path! Use the extensions.openDownload2.downloadPath prefs entry to change the target folder (default: non-existing).
