PDF Download 0.9 is out!

Hi guys, wonderful news for you: PDF Download 0.9 has been published and it contains a great improvement for Mac users. Now, even if you are a Mac user, you will be able to select your custom PDF viewer in the PDF Download options.
Prior to 0.9 this was not possible and such users were getting the alert "This is not an executable file"; this was caused by the fact that Mac makes use of what they call "bundle" applications, that is, a special directory (where you cannot enter using the "Open file" dialog) containing all the resources needed by an application (and hence also the executable file to be launched).
Thanks to Davide Ficano, we've solved this issue and now all Mac users will be happy!

Another feature we've added in PDF Download 0.9 is the ability to intercept local PDF files that are linked from a web page (imagine an ebook with an index in HTML and the chapters in PDF). For the moment, when the local files are intercepted you do't have the chance to view them as HTML, but we are thinking to introduce the possibility to upload a local file to our mirrors to give the possibility to the user to view it as HTML.
What do you think about that?

That's a great idea. But as far as I can see, even when type in an URL which points to a PDF, this will not be intercepted. Do you think this is easy to fix?

Is it possible to get a copy of the previous release of PDF Download? I have a MacBook Pro so I have to run Firefox under Rosetta to use the PDF Browser plugin. Everything worked before I installed the latest version of PDF Download. It is no use telling me that my problem is with the plugin. That may be the case, but there is no other plugin for my machine and it used to work just fine.

Hi Peter,

to intercept the pdf url that you write directly in the URL field, you can join the beta tester team and try the new beta version. You need to register yourself to the PDF Download forum (www.pdfdownload.org/forum) and then send me a private message asking to be added as member of the beta tester team.
