Getdown v1.8.1 Release Notes

Release Date: 2018-11-26 // about 3 years ago
    • If both an appbase and appdir are provided via some means (bootstrap properties file, system property, etc.) and the app dir does not yet exist, Getdown will create it.

    • Added max_concurrent_downloads setting to getdown.txt. Controls what you would expect. Defaults to two.

    • bootstrap.properties can now contain system properties which will be set prior to running Getdown. They must be prefixed by sys.: for example sys.silent = true will set the silent system property to true.

    • 💻 If Getdown is run in a headless JVM, it will avoid showing a UI but will attempt to install and launch the application anyhow. Note that passing -Dsilent will override this behavior (because in silent mode the default is only to install the app, not also launch it).

    • 🛠 Fixed issue with appid not being properly used when specified via command line arg.

    • 🛠 Fixed issue with running Getdown on single CPU systems (or virtual systems). It was attempting to create a thread pool of size zero, which failed.

    • 🛠 Fixed issue with backslashes (or other regular expression escape characters) in environment variables being substituted into app arguments.
