New version of gtm (0.4.5)

Hi everybody, it's a long time since the last time I posted to this
list. Anyway here it goes the release 0.4.5 of GTM.

For those of you who don't know gtm (GNOME Transfer Manager), gtm is
capable of downloading files from the network using FTP and HTTP

The program is also capable of continuing the downloads and accepts drag
and drop of URL from netscape. You can dnd to the program or to the
applet (applet dnd is very usefull if you have a small monitor).

You can even dnd from gmc and gftp (need at least gftp version
2.0.5a). This means more than one URL at a time.

And now there is galeon ( which uses GTM to
do the transfers. It's the first client I saw (beside the gtm_applet in
gtm distribution) to communicate with GTM throught CORBA.

If you want to know more visit gtm page

You can download the source code, RPM (RedHat 6.x) or SRPM.

Changes since version last version (0.4.4):

        * New dialog box with list statistics thanks to Ross Arnold

        * The application doesn't crash while starting up because the
        CORBA bug was causing this

        * Fixed a CORBA bug making the applet crash when a URL was dropped
        or added from the dialog box. Or crash with option -g

        * List order is now saved thanks thanks to Ross Arnold for the fix

        * Better networking detection and also works on NetBSD. Thanks to
        Ian Campbell <> and Mario Kemper 
        <> (the last one made it work on NetBSD)

        * The gtm_applet saves a default properties to be used when it
        doesn't have session properties to use.

        * Now it is possible to disable the selection of the download dir
        on the applet dialog boxes. Using this the gtm regexp or the default
        are used instead.

        * Fixed the problem making the total size reducing everytime a
        download was continued (The stats went crazy because of this).

        * Now it's possible to change the button click event of the
        applet (thanks to Ross Arnold (<>).

        * Ross Arnold (<>) added regular
        expressions based on the download URL to select the download dir.

        * Applet correctly transparent now (thanks to Ross Arnold

        * Changed the confirm remove to confirm remove for incomplete files
        and confirm remove complete files (thanks to Ross Arnold

        * The proxy options can be set even if the global proxy is not used.
        This is needed because the user might activate the proxy later and
        wants to be sure the proxy options are correct.

        * From the toolbar you can toggle the disable auto download option
        for selected files.

        * From the download info page it is possible to enable/disable auto
        download or proxy usage.

        * Nailed the bug making the progress stop working for files dropped
        on the applet.

        * With the new translation setup Kenneth Christiansen
        (<>) help me to put up GTM will be translated before a
        new release

It's all for now.
