the complete version on server 1 is still the 1.80.2 :( i'll try the other servers.

by the way, and going a bit off topic, could u add the version to the setup filenames, so that we can check weather they are, or not, updated?
something like:
xnview_win_1.80.3_cmp.exe
xnview_win_1.80.3_std.exe
xnview_win_1.80.3_min.exe

thanks ;)

EDit: server 2 has the 1.80.3 ;)

I support this suggestion.

:) Hello !

• I support too ! And please enhance that for the names of the ZIP packages …
- If you forget to rename each ZIP package in the download-dir., the previous archive is overwritten…

Think there's little that can be done about this: The filenames of the download files are listed in many download portals. If these would be changed, all the download links were broken.

the portals should link to the downloadsite, not direct to the files.
and yes, the versionnumber in the filename is a good idea.

That's the whole point! ;)

If they point to a 404 file in one of the download folders it could be automatically redirected to the download page :)

The download portals should host their own copies of the files or link to the download page.

And if the download portal was too lazy to update the file version the user would notice he was downloading a more recent version then the one shown in the portal.
