uGet stable v2.2.0 released, dated 2018-01-06 (changelog and download at sourceforge.net /projects/urlget/files/uget (stable)/2.2.0/).

Apparently, the previous homepage changelog address (http://ugetdm.com/changelog) has been deprecated, as it stopped with v2.0.8 back in 2016.

FYI, portable uGet custom 'Command line arguments template' for the Flashgot FF extension is as follows:

Code: Select all

[--input-file=UFILE] [--http-referer=REFERER] [--http-cookie-file=CFILE] [--http-post-data=POST] [--filename=FNAME]

How to obtain Portable version:

3. unzip of the file 'uget-2.2.1-win32-locale.7z' the folder 'locale' inside 'share' folder
--> this folder contains all localization files in format .mo (binary files) obtained with Poedit program

5. done

Question
I have'n found the entry of this program in 'Categories' -> Download Managers: why not ?

According to the uGet website, 2.2.1 is the official stable release as of today. The download links on the uGet website point to the 2.2.1 downloads. So, I don't think 2.2.3-2 is released yet even though it's on SourceForge.

uGet Portable by PortableApps
uGet Portable is based on build 2.2.1 - official release
uGet Portable by PortableApps is Multilanguage, but inside program there are no link for change default language (english).

Here is a trick suggested by John T. Haller in this post https://portableapps.com/node/64013
Here are the instructions inserted in the file 'uGetPortable.ini'

[Environment]
Language=it
For other languages:
1. see inside folder 'C:\PortableApps\uGetPortable\App\uGet\share\locale' if Your language is available
2. change the value after '=' to 'de' (for example) for switch to german language.

File uGetPortable.ini modified

Code: Select all

[Launch]
ProgramExecutable=uGet\bin\uget.exe
;CommandLineArguments=-settings=%PAL:DataDir%\
;WorkingDirectory=%PAL:AppDir%\AppName
DirectoryMoveOK=yes
SupportsUNC=yes

[Environment]
Language=it

[DirectoriesMove]
config=%PAL:AppDir%\uGet\config

[FileWrite1]
Type=Replace
File=%PAL:DataDir%\config\uGet\category\*.json
Find="folder": "%PAL:LastDrive%%PAL:LastPackagePartialDir:DoubleBackslash%
Replace="folder": "%PAL:Drive%%PAL:PackagePartialDir:DoubleBackslash%

[FileWrite2]
Type=Replace
File=%PAL:DataDir%\config\uGet\category\*.json
Find="folder": "%PAL:LastDrive%%PAL:LastPortableAppsBaseDir:DoubleBackslash%
Replace="folder": "%PAL:Drive%%PAL:PortableAppsBaseDir:DoubleBackslash%

[FileWrite3]
Type=Replace
File=%PAL:DataDir%\config\uGet\category\*.json
Find="folder": "%PAL:LastDrive%
Replace="folder": "%PAL:Drive%

[FileWrite4]
Type=Replace
File=%PAL:DataDir%\config\uGet\category\*.json
Find="folder": "DEFAULTDOWNLOADDIRECTORY
Replace="folder": "%CustomPortableApps.comDownloads:DoubleBackslash%

[FileWrite5]
Type=Replace
File=%PAL:DataDir%\config\uGet\category\*.json
Find="path": "%PAL:LastDrive%%PAL:LastPackagePartialDir:DoubleBackslash%
Replace="path": "%PAL:Drive%%PAL:PackagePartialDir:DoubleBackslash%

[FileWrite6]
Type=Replace
File=%PAL:DataDir%\config\uGet\category\*.json
Find="path": "%PAL:LastDrive%%PAL:LastPortableAppsBaseDir:DoubleBackslash%
Replace="path": "%PAL:Drive%%PAL:PortableAppsBaseDir:DoubleBackslash%

[FileWrite7]

Find="path": "%PAL:LastDrive%
Replace="path": "%PAL:Drive%

No software update here, but I got a chance to test this out today to run a simple backup for one of my machines -- worked perfectly. Definitely putting this on the list of stuff to add to the DB. I forgot how much I missed the old Free Download Manager.

Resources: Low CPU usage, 13 megs RAM, 36 megs uncompressed.

uGet Portable by PortableApps release 2.2.3-2 has been released at September 13, 2021
uGet Portable is based on build 2.2.3-2 - official release
• uGet Portable page: https://portableapps.com/news/2021-09-1 ... 2-released
• Sourceforge.net page of uGet Portable: https://sourceforge.net/projects/portab ... 0Portable/
• Sourceforge.net uGet Portable direct download: https://sourceforge.net/projects/portab ... e/download

uGet Portable do not automatically assume system language, so You must edit the file 'uGetPortable.ini' inside path 'C:\PortableApps\uGetPortable\App\AppInfo\Launcher' by adding a new line in [Environment] section:

Code: Select all

[Environment]
Language=%PAL:LanguageCustom%
Language=it
the row is 'Language=it' if You use italian language.
If you omit the Language row, uGet will launch with english language (default language). But You can also put the row 'Language=en'
Save and restart uGet Portable: program show your selected language.

B.T.W.
for change interface in other language You must check the exact value of ISO 3166 country codes:
1. look inside uGet program and check if your language is supported. See inside path 'C:\PortableApps\uGetPortable\App\uGet\share\locale'
2. look on internet for 'ISO 3166 country codes' https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_I ... ntry_codes
3. put the two letter code in lowercase after the sign '='
4. done
