Major Changes in 6.0
# Added support for BitTorrent downloads.
# Added Podcast Downloader to automate downloading files in a RSS feed.
# Added ability to pick a playlist (from iTunes or Windows Media Player) so when a download is completed, it's automatically added to the playlist. This is part of the Podcast Downloader too, so it can automatically put files from a podcast source into the playlist you choose.
# Totally redone graphics and logos.

# Added support for MD5 and SHA1 checksums to verify files.
# Added a Language configuration item, to make it easy to use translations.
# Added File Compare to the download status history mode, so can compare the size/date for a file you downloaded to the current file on the server.
# Lots and lots of changes, fixes, and improvements.

GetRight 6.0a and GetRight Pro 6.0a have been Released.

* Fix (nasty) problem when resuming a >2GB file when it was past the 2GB point. (See below for why...an alert for other programmers...)
* Added so Podcasts will use the Title as the description for an item.
* Fixed installer so uses the right icon for in-progress downloads.
* The newer graphic when downloading as a tray icon with XP didn't work with some custom XP themes (custom ones only?). Did a different way, won't match as exactly (grays with very subtly faded GetRight logo), but is prettier than the older style!
* Fixed so Edit/Delete from right clicking on an server in the report at the bottom of the download window itself works and doesn't crash.
* Refresh the main tray icon if you turn off the animation for it.
* A few little text fixes, found by Italian translator M.Leuzzi
* Didn't handle Content-MD5: header right (so just didn't get the MD5 from it at all--the Windows Vista beta was the first file I'd seen use the header!)
* Fix so updated translations shouldn't get duplicate items on the Languages page.
* Added a new script command for whendone scripts: if filename xxx.xyz
* Fix so config pages with sub-tabs (Proxy, Browser) enable the Apply button right.
* Fix so config messages about restarting your browsers will only happen once, even if Apply is clicked several times.
* Fix for the "Prompt in Web Browser..." option on the Types & Options; so the prompt uses the new logo icon.
* Should have done it before...Signed EXEs for the Installer and GetRight.exe

* Fix to handle those few servers that don't like a "Range:0"; (resuming from the beginning.)
* Fix to handle an odd case with Content-Disposition:
* And while not visible to anybody yet...started working on DHT (Distributed Hash Table) support for BitTorrent smile.gif Finally got some documentation about it! (www.bittorrent.org)

GetRight 6.0c and GetRight Pro 6.0c have been Released.

August 10, 6.0b+01

* Changed some things to try and fix the 469 error that a few people get.
* Change some default directory things, for new installs and if still the C:\Downloads default.
So Picture types will default to MyPictures, music to MyMusic, etc.
* Added so GetRight Browser gets a default folder if opened for a Server Synchronizer or Podcast item.
* Had mixed up height & width one place for remembering the window sizes.
* Fix downloading an updated translation file.
* Fix so the ShowDLSonReRun registry item should work now.
* And by FAR the biggest, turned on the DHT Network support for BitTorrent!
There are more debugging things than usual for this. There will be a window opened (minimized) when the DHT starts that shows a lot of status and things. Don't close it, it's the one doing the work too! (It won't be there in the final builds...but I would like some way to get some stats and info if there are problems.)

What does it all mean?
Statistics Tab, this has a bunch of information about the requests and responses (and incoming queries) it's getting. Mostly nice to look at, if there's odd things, I might have you copy and email/post that for me.
Visualize Tab, this is a graphic representation of the Tree it's storing. Even nicer to look at. It is NOT bad if everything is red, it just means GetRight doesn't know the status...it will always be red when first starting. Things should change to black as GetRight knows it is OK, but then gradually change to black to red as the time since the last connection increases.

August 11, 6.0b+02

* More things to fix the 469 error.

August 21, 6.0b+03

* Added so %MON% sorts of variables will work for any of the Save To config items.
So could use one default folder of C:\Downloads\%MONTH%-%YYYY%\ to get ...\August-2006\
* Fixed so SaveAs will cleanup temp files better, and not connect as much for looking for redirects.
* Added a message if CyberPatrol seems to be causing problems (blocking all access!)
* Disabled the gzip encoding...seems to cause some files to be corrupted sad.gif
* Fixed a few more Torrent things. Another cause of slowly losing peers...

September 8, 6.0b+04

* Fix so drag-drop files to GR Browser to upload will start them if you click Now.
* Added so ServerSync items in the Download Status tree have a GetRight Browser menu to open them in the browser.
* Fix so \\server\share\path sorts of folders are remembered correctly.
* I know there's more, just didn't write down as well (been rebuilding my laptop after the hard drive died.) This likely will be 6.0c pretty soon smile.gif

Sep 12. 6.0b+05

* Changed the graph's look, can right click to select from several colors.
* Added some checks to make sure the save-to folder wasn't too long for Windows.
* Fixed a couple script commands (automatic and set speed limit).
* Little toolbar change, a different Config button.


6.0c is out:

* Added Podcast config page, to easily allow setting the Title of the podcast as the filename.
* And fixed so the Advanced--Saving item to add the comment works with podcasts too.
* Changed the Tip window that appears, so that if a new one should show, the old is updated.
* Will help with clicking many links quickly!
* DHT not included in the releases yet.

GetRight 6.1 has been Released!

October 9 (AM); 6.0c+01

* Fix a torrent crash.
* Fix how it handles .torrent files as a mirror with a regular download.
* Fix so torrent/http/ftp hybrid ones use the regular Acceleration settings properly for the numbers of http/ftp connections.
* Slight color adjustment on the graph to make the contrast a bit more.
* Fix so a command line one works correctly: /URL:"x" /FILE:"y" /W
* Fix very occasional incorrect message when renaming a file.

October 9 (PM); 6.0c+02

* Mainly did the +02 today because of this one: I added a tray icon Balloon tooltip when a file is finished (if it's not set to run already.) Lets you see the name, time, speed, and Run/Open the file by clicking the balloon. I think it's very nice--hopefully you all do too!
IPB Image
* Fix setting the file to the server's date even if the option was off.

October 15; 6.0c+03

* Even better Downloaded a file tip window. (Better icon, move it, open the folder, right click for more options!)
* Added TipWindow option, and the Window state to the Options menu from right clicking the tray icon.

October 23; 6.0c+04
All for the new "finished a download" tip window:

* Added option (Advanced--When Done config page) to enter any number of seconds. Removed a few built-in choices since you can now do anything you want.
* Added a button & menu to open the History with Today's downloads selected. A nice shortcut in case a bunch have finished. (Peter's Idea.)
* Added tooltips for the buttons.
* Fix so it moves itself if part of the window is off screen (since the width can vary if the filename is long); also limit the file name displayed to about 60 characters.

IPB Image

November 28; 6.0c+05

* More tip window improvements (bigger click area, some button colors, etc.)
* Works, but some of the websites aren't yet there for the Subscription Channels.
We haven't gotten into any file recommending before...we're trying it.
But ONLY will be things we use on our computers (or games we play).
* Fix some causes of crashes.
* I know I've been fixing things...but some stuff going on and I haven't
kept track well. More is fixed than is listed here smile.gif


December 5; 6.1--

* Assuming I'm not missing something, this should be released as 6.1 within a day or so. Really a "sanity check" build smile.gif
* A couple Vista tweaks.
* Fix shared memory XML formatting.
* A few more things...again haven't been tracking them well these weeks.

Getright and Getright Pro 6.2 (on website) and 6.2+01 (on forum) has been Released!


December 17; 6.1+01

* Fixed double run of virus scanners.
* Added so "Downloaded a file" tip window, if semi-transparent, changes to opaque if you mouse over it.
* Got Rapidshare Free working smile.gif Rapidshare links do expire very quickly--within a couple minutes. So you can not wait to download them later...but it will work if you start downloading as you click.

January 9; 6.1+02

* Speed and stability improvements when uploading or downloading many small files, especially from FTP servers.
* Added so the "Downloaded a File" Tip window, if semi-transparent, will fade in to opaque when you mouse over.
* Fading was so cool, I added to the regular download windows. Semi-Transparent option is in the menu icon in the upper left corner of the window.
* Rapidshare changed something...fixed again. You'll need to run the RUN_ME.EXE to update a DLL.

February 9; 6.1+03

* A variety of fixes, I haven't tracked too well (with being sick and a family funeral, I am behind on a number of things--including replying to some posts here--sorry!)
* But this build has one of the coolest new features in a LONG time...I added a small Play a Game button on the download window. That lets you play a game directly in the download window itself! It resizes, the progress information is still there at the top, the bottom lets you choose and play games. This is all in conjunction with the new www.GetRightArcade.com smile.gif

February 10; 6.1+04

* I believe I fixed that segmenting crash...finally was able to get it to happen to me with the debugger running.
* Fixed the location for the GRGame.ini file.

February 11; 6.2

* Only changes from 6.1+04 were to fix that the "Open" from history would do the folder too.

Feb 26; 6.2+01

* Improved some appearance things for Vista...better toolbars, and a "Vista" color set for the graph.
* Fixed filefront downloads that all were named X6
* Fix how small files could show the byte size in the percent spot.
* Fixed some games button problems with XP in classic Windows look--could have been no icon.
* Added %TITLE% and %ITEMTITLE% as variable options for Podcast downloader default folders.

GetRight 6.3:
# Alpha channels for many graphics...8 bits prettier!
# Added "Find Files" button to link to categories of software on FileMirrors
# Fixed issues with Vista/XP/2003 and DEP (Data Execution Protections.)
# Improvements that will help the IE integration with Vista.
# Added a message if privileges (from a Vista limited account) are preventing GetRight from deleting the Startup shortcut.
# Added a button on the Save As "Options" button window--to change the default folders--just is a shortcut to the right config page. (Had a couple people email they couldn't find where to change it...hopefully that's the sort of place they were looking.)
# Fixed how the port got cropped to por on the FTP Proxy tab.
# Fixed the .getright file type icon (fix is in the installers, so can't see in these test builds.)
# Fixed some images on the download window buttons when using the "classic" XP look or older versions of Windows.
# Fixed several BitTorrent things.
# Fixed download status menu/toolbar items not being grayed out correctly when opening.
# Fixed uninstalling old Opera plugins.
# Increased daily download registered user limit to 500
# Improved some podcast processing speeds and problems, especially for very large ones.
# Fixed HTTP proxy for FTP downloads.
# Fixed restoring window locations, X and Width was mixed up in one spot.
# Added so internal DNS cache is cleared every hour (to help with dynamic sites.)
# Fixed podcast downloader to handle some podcasts better (if new items are added at the bottom vs added at the top.)
# Changed the "shutdown when done" so the options (shutdown/hibernate/etc) are in the menus and toolbar button instead of on the Advanced tab.
# Adjusted the Schedule Start and Stop options to match the new Shutdown (so choices there too.)
# Fixed alignment on Import window.
# Added so Pro's Web Access can accept a list of URLs to add multiple downloads at once.
# Fixed some "classic" graphic items (didn't have them for Podcasts or Scripts).
# Fixed some XML processing for large XML files (Podcasts, Metalink, etc.)

GetRight 6.3a and GetRight Pro 6.3a Released!

July 25; 6.3+01

* Fixed GetRight Browser so HTTPS browsing is done right.
* Fixed some RapidShare downloading things (you must run the RUN_ME.EXE file to change the file).
* Some Linux and newer file types that should have sent URLs to FindFiles/FileMirrors weren't (.rpm .7z)
* Fixed : colon character in podcast filenames causing problems.
* Some FileMirrors->FindFiles text changes.
* Real DEP fix; hopefully with no side effects this time.

August 22; 6.3+02

* Added registry setting to hide the tray icon button.
* Changed how some toolbar graphics are done to see if that affects memory use.
* Added "wife request", a prompt the first time to ask about skipping the Save As window.
* Added caching for tray Icons; sounds like that might have been where the resource leak was--caching will be faster and avoid leaks.
* Fix so "add sequence of URLs" doesn't crash if Start equals Finish.
* Fix a redirect thing that hopefully will help Rapidshare, and improve how the Save As can update the name for redirects too.

Sept 11; 6.3+03

* Switching to InnoSetup. Doesn't appear to be a good fix for the "UNINSTALL.LOG not found" error that the previous installer had for some people. Plus 400K or so smaller! The usual gr6.zip and gr6pro.zip have the new installer.
* Fix crash when using ServerSync.
* Added WhenAllDone.GRM script option; to be run when Automatic mode has finished everything.

October 2; 6.3+04

* Fixed crash if tried to run a file from the History that had been deleted.
* Fix some text highlighting for FindFiles menus.
* Fix URLs added by scripts not refreshing the Download Status
* Added so R-click on header lets you choose Download Status columns
* Fixed several things with the InnoSetup installer. Uninstalling, right icons, digital signing.
Plus several improvements from Ricardo's custom GetRight installer smile.gif

October 16; 6.3a

* A couple final fixes for InnoSetup and uninstalling.
* Fixed to cache all tray icons, not just some (should fix the leaks!)
* Fixed not opening URLs in the web browser right.
