Elysium Download 0.5.8

Elysium Download 0.5.8 is now available for the masses. It includes several bug fixes and enhancements of which are listed here today.

  • Status Dock icon no longer changes back to idle when multiple downloads exist and one finishes before the others
  • Queueing system is now more extensible (more features will come)
  • Download Cancellation is now possible
  • The Status Bar in the main window is now gone, it is useless

You can get it at the following labelled addresses. Be aware that it also requires gnome-vfs, gnome-core, gnome-libs, etc... which are available in ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/stable/


And you will also need libelysium, available here:


I might also recommend installing gnome-vfs extras if you want support for the smb protocol. It is available somewhere in ftp ftp.gnome.org under the /pub/GNOME/ directory as gnome-vfs-extras-0.2.0.tar.gz/.
