If you haven't used it in a while, you would notice that the site has been redesigned completely. And the downloader has been redesigned too!
It has been redesigned into a more streamlined UI and they made the configuration is easier to use.
One of the biggest changes noted is the addition of a mac version and dropping the support for Windows XP and Windows Vista.
Since the addition of a Mac version, I wondered, why not an Ubuntu version? So I e-mailed the contact e-mail, and this is the response they gave me:
I will be following them closely for you!We'll inform all our users. Please keep up with the news on our blog.Hello!Thank you for your feedback.
Our team is planning to release FDM5 for Linux OS, still, not in the nearest future though.
That means that FDM is one step away from being truly cross platform after being stuck in the Windows ecosystem for years!
Those are fantastic news! The new version is so awesome, Mac addition is lovely, and I can't wait to see how does it look on Ubuntu, Will it make it in time for Ubuntu 16.04?
I'm afraid it's going to take a little longer than I thought it would!
You can find the comment source in here.Update 3:
FDM has published a poll for future features, Linux is one of them! So vote Linux!!
Until this wait is over, be more than welcome to use uGet, it's that good!
