    Hi,

    IrfanView 4.30 (standard installation) is now in the repository. I changed the xml format (repository description), removed the log tab and put the log messages on the main screen!

    New 0.9.2.53 can be downloaded here

    Hi Nils,

    I'm going to re- structure the whole repository

    Maybe it's working again the next days/ weekend - I'll write it here when you can use it properly

    I just tried to update, but I get the following error:
    09:56:16 Error: File rep.xml could not be downloaded! No response from http://stable.irfanview-forum.de/rep.xml

    Are your currently updating your repository?

    Best regards

    Update on that:

    0.9.1.52 does now support proxy credentials! Just enter your proxy address (ip + port), username and password and you can download files via a proxy server

    Download it here.

    A small "workaround" for calling the downloader directly in IrfanView.

    It uses the "Multimedia plugin" instead:

    Zip file contains a modified version for the english language dll and the irfanview downloader (just renamed to iv_player.exe).

    So you will be able to call the programm in IrfanView - "check homepage for updates" is then deprecated.

    EDIT: 0.9.1.50 implements a new about page + url checking

    Hi,

    0.9.1.45: here

    You don´t need admin privileges to calculate the checksum for your local IrfanView files! Diff files is very fast

    Update on that:

    It´s now possible to diff the repository files with your local IrfanView files:

    (It´s really fast)

    You need admin privileges (> Windows Vista), because you´re accessing the Program Files directory.

    I will build a new version soon!

    Hi Nils,

    thanks for your feedback!

    I just implemented a few things:

    [ADD] a "(de)select all" check box
    [ADD] jumping to the Log- tab to see the current download process
    [FIX] vertical scrollbar for the log textbox

    Checking your local files is not implemented yet - but I´m going to start it this night

    You could add some buttons to the repository tab:
    (Select all) (Unselect all) (Select new)

    But, how can I check my files against the repository? I just copied the v4.28 into the download directory, but I can't see that they are old. Ok, for text files it is not possible to check the version but it might be nice to check the downloaded files again to the SHA1 code.

    Regards
    Nils

    Hi guys,

    here´s the first testing release for my IrfanView Downloader - you can download multiple files from the repository.

    Click image for larger version

Name:	latest.png
Views:	1
Size:	45.7 KB
ID:	80546

    The IrfanView repository contains following release branches:

    STABLE - The current IrfanView version + all files

    TESTING - Updated files after the current IrfanView version. There you can find updated versions of plugins - like you can find in some threads here (languaged, plugins...).

    Notice: At the moment stable = testing - I´m going to add updated version this week!

    A short description how to download files with my IrfanView Downloader:

    Download the file here.

    You don´t have to extract/install anything - it contains the program only.

    Click on the tab "Settings", choose your download folder + download the latest repository file. Click on "Download latest repository file".

    After a few seconds you can go to the "IrfanView repository" tab + click on "Scan Repository".

    Now you can hopefully see some repository entries. Now you´ll be able to download some files

    Feedback, bug reports, wishes are highly welcome!

    Stefan

    EDIT: Things to be added in the next minor- version:

    - deselect files after downloading
    - select all/none files from the repository list

    Repository data is stored in an xml file - I´m using a sha-1 checksum for comparing files

    Hi Nils,

    I'm going to obtain all rights for distributing these kind of dlls (Or should I better say: I'm trying it )

    Your dependency suggestion lead my to another idea: I can easily do that with a kind of "filter" layer.

    -> So you can click on "canon- dlls" or "Media dlls", "format dlls","effects dlls" or "misc dll" and so on (like Irfan did separated them on his website) and the several entries on the repository list will be checked and you can download them with just one mouseclick

    Good idea by the way

    Latest development step: It is possible to download files + the IrfanView folder structure will be the same in your specified download path. That means if you download the German language dll of course a folder "Languages" will be created and the language will be stored in it.

    Future plans: I going to implement a kind of file version checker in order do check if you're using the latest files in your IrfanView directory.

    I will do that with comparing md5 checksums

    Stefan
