  • Added support for MD5 and SHA1 checksums to verify files.
  • Added a Language configuration item, to make it easy to use translations.

  • Detailed Changes in GetRight Pro 6.0x

    GetRight Pro 6.0a:
  • Fix problem when resuming a >2GB file when it was past the 2GB point.
  • 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 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:

    GetRight Pro 6.0:
  • Bought one of the trouble-some routers which helped find and fix some Port Forwarding crashes.
  • Fixed click monitoring for Windows Vista Beta #2.
  • Changed how the "download as tray icon" tray icon looks when using Windows XP, so will match the XP style much better.
  • Added so when Syncing, for some errors it will write a log file in the GetRight folder to help debugging.
  • And a few more things too.

    GetRight 6.0 beta 7:
  • New GetRight Logo and Graphics.
  • Added a Language config page, to make it easy to download and use a translation (more languages will be available when the 6.0 release is done.)
  • Fixed a number for torrent bugs and issues.
  • Fixed some resource leaks.
  • Fixed so click monitoring works for Windows Vista (beta 2 at least.)
  • Fixed so if the GetRight folder isn't writeable, it uses some other locations for its files.
  • Fixed some speed issues with HTTPS downloads.
  • Fixed so Download Status will accept drag-and-drop files properly.
  • Added "Go All" button to the Daily Downloads.
  • Added keyboard shortcuts for the Podcast Downloader.
  • Fixed so the Apply button on the config works better (enables when something changed.)
  • Fixed issues if uploading a 0 byte file.
  • Fixed so deleting multiple files in the GetRight Browser works right.
  • Fixes and improvements to MD5 checkusm checks, with some automatic ways to get them if the website supports it: http://serv.com/file.exe#!md5!abcde... Plus in the GRX import/export files.
  • Added /BROWSE (URL) command line item to open the GetRight Browser for a URL.

    GetRight 6.0 beta 6:
  • Fix the problem where completed downloads would reappear in the list or the percent done would be too small.
  • Improved the right-click menus in Internet Explorer, will better pass cookies and the source webpage which will help many sites that use logins.
  • Fix some torrent timeout things.
  • Added Priority to Podcast download options.
  • Fixed so setting the comment for a history item was saved right.
  • Fixed some display things if History is turned off.

    GetRight Pro 6.0 beta 5:
  • Fixed a couple things that could have been causing all the crashes with segmented and automatic mode.
  • Added a prompt to hide any toolbar buttons you haven't used. (Will take about 3 weeks for the prompt to appear as it sees which ones have been touched.)
  • Changed so the default toolbar has far fewer buttons turned on. (For a brand new install.)
  • Fix a Torrent bug if some timeouts were triggered, it didn't try again right.
  • Fixed so if the target file for the torrent exists (either with or without the .GetRight suffix) and is the right size, it will us it and compare the checksums to find any previously finished pieces.
  • Improved Torrent messages and timer if no peers.
  • Fixed a bug loading skins (makes sure to use the DLL from the GetRight folder so no DLL version problems)
  • PRO: Working to add Web Access. Allows you to view and control GetRight on your computer from anywhere.
  • Added a torrent config item so you can set the maximum number of uploads and downloads per file.
  • Added a torrent config so can either be the default .torrent handler, or just do any .torrent files it downloads.
  • Fix to allow clearing of existing MD5 values.
  • Speed limit and Acceleration had some odd conflicts in the past, I've improved some things, so trying again to enable them to work together.
  • 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.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause finished/deleted items to reappear if a second copy of GetRight was run.
  • Little improvement for grabbing the right form for the Log Into Web Site if the page has several forms.
  • PRO: Fix bug in GetRight Proxy so form POST data now passes correctly.
  • Fix some crashes when first adding some torrents; a timing thing where it was trying to do some status before it was really setup, and torrents using announce-list would crash too.
  • Fix crash in automatic mode if disk where GetRight was saving a file is removed.
  • Fix so some click monitoring messages "you need to log out of Windows..." are just skipped when GetRight starts if no Internet Explorer windows are open--since in that case you shouldn't need to log out.
  • Added so file verifying can use SHA1 in addition to MD5.
  • Added so the main tray icon can be animated (option on the Interface--Icons config page.) Off by default.
  • Found an odd lock/timing problem that I think caused at least some of the problems renaming files to remove the .GetRight. The problem also added an extra unneeded delay for some automatic mode things, so should be a bit faster if doing many small files.
  • Fixed the Torrent things so that turning Off on the config works right and restored the previous values.
    Changed/Fixed in 6.0 beta 4:
  • Added support for BitTorrent protocols! (GetRight & BitTorrent notes and info...worth reading.)

  • Added so GetRight Browser can process RSS feeds and other XML data.
  • 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.
