Here is the full list of changes in version 0.5.859 Final:
There now are various options to boost JDownloader's GUI speed. Disable advanced effects in the interface configuration, disable window decoration or switch to the low-performance-style (first style in list)
Most of the premiumusers know: “To use a premiumaccount, you have to activate premium globally”. This has NOT changed. But the Global premium switch no provides more features… Click it with the left mousebutton, and you enable/disable premium globally. A right click invokes the premiumquickmenu. Open your favourite hoster's configuration as fast as possible.
The quick-Premium button is located at the bottom-left corner.
JDownloader now uses Hoster's logo instead of text.
If you like to use custom hoster icons, just createan icon with the hoster's domain in
The icons have to be in png format, and should be 16×16 Pixel.
The new Stop-Sign Feature allows you to mark a download or package, after which the download should stop. Right click on any Downloadlink or Filepackage to set it's stop sign and no further downloads will start after the selected one.
You are used to the fact, that JDownloaders handles links from top to bottom. This is still true, except you set priority on some links or packages. A priorized link will always start before others. If you like to download a certain link NOW, you do not longer have to move it to the list's head. Just click right → an give it a priority form -1 to 3. You even can assign priority in the linkgrabber.
The linkgrabber has been improved a lot. It comes totally rewritten and provides packaging by drag&drop, filtering file types, 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 file types, hoster, etc. The filter is based on regular expressions which match on the url or the filename. Double click on packages or links to open its file(package) information. Click right on various packages to set the destination for all together.
Balloons which pop up at the bottom right inform you about important events. Of course, this feature can be disabled. Moreover, JD shows you more detailed infos about what it is doing. A filterable log helps you to find your information.
Most options now have a header. Clicking this header usually leads you to the concerned knowledge base site. If you need detailed help for a certain feature, try to press ctrl+shift and move our mouse over any component.
Double click on a download link and you will get detailed info about it's download destination and source, or about it's chunks if you load with parallel connections.
Double click on a package and you will get detailed package information. You even are able to change download destination, package name, archive password or the package comment.
