jdownloader 0.7 (7.569)

JDownloader, the open source, platform independent Rapidshare, Megaupload (and others) download application, has been updated to version 0.7 (7.569).

JDownloader simplifies downloading files from One-Click-Hosters like Rapidshare.com or Megaupload.com - not only for users with a premium account but also for users who don't pay. It offers downloading in multiple paralell streams, captcha recognition, automatical file extraction and much more. Of course, JDownloader is absolutely free of charge. Additionally, many "link encryption" sites are supported - so you just paste the "encrypted" links and JD does the rest.

The most important, noticeable change is that JDownloader 0.7 (7.569) is a lot faster than the previous versions. Another interesting change is that now it supports anti-captcha for more than 60 websites. Read on to see a list of other important changes.

What's New in 0.7

  • After lots of complains about performance we redesigned the gui to be much faster.
  • Better Browser integration - The famous Firefox Extension Flashgot now supports JDownloader and is bundled together with it.
  • New, and most important, faster themes. Install Substance Themepack to get more Style and Themes.
  • Updated JDChat, Scheduler, LanguageFileEditor.
  • You can now continue downloading while updating.
  • The new External Interface provides an API for Websites to interact with JDownloader.
  • More supported Hosters and Decrypter than ever before.
