After over 500 Revisions, we are finally proud to present the latest JDownloader BETA.
JDownloader 0.5 runs on Java 1.5 and Java 1.6. We stringly advise to use 1.6 on where possible.
The BETA is compatible to the old config. So it is possible to just extract it to your old JDownloader directory. Please make sure to create a backup of your config folder before.
As long as this version is beta, the webupdater is disabled. As soon as it is stable, and distributed by our updatesystem, this beta will automaticly update to the latest stable version.
IF you want to know more about the changes, see our changelog
From day tod ay, we will publish new Screenshots, tipps and tricks here,
JDownloader now uses a collapsible sidebar layout. The sidebar provides all importat interactions and informations for the current screen. In Downloadmode, the sidebar may be collapsed.
Good to know
Enable or disable Premiumusage globally in the bottom left. Rightclick on this icon to access premium quick config.
Use a STOP sign on a certain link. JDownloader will stop downloading after this link. The stop sign replaces the old “Stop downloads after this link”
The linkgrabber provides packaging by drag&drop, filtering filetypes, online and statuschecks,hoster selection, and much more. The Linkgrabber's configuration allows to disable the filecheck or to edit a static filterlist. Using this list, you can filter special filetypes, hoster, etc. The filter is based on regular expressions wich match on the url or the filename.
You may miss the “move-buttons” in the toolbar to give some links a higher or lower priority by moving them up er down the downloadlist. We removed these buttons, because you still can sort your downloadlist using drag&drop. To priorize some links very quickly, we advise to use the new “Priority System”. Assign a priority from 0 (normal) to 3 (very high) to each link. Priorized links will always start before others, even though they are at the end of the list.
