Hey all,

Hot on the heels of our release of Beta 1 comes vBDownloads v1.4.0 Beta 2 for vBulletin 4.x. This release is available immediately to Pro customers running vBulletin 4.x, and aims to address the initial batch of issues found by you guys.

As with Beta 1: Please note that vBDownloads v1.4 is currently a beta - as this is a complete re-write rather than a simple feature update please be aware there may be slightly more bugs than usual. You should however find all of the existing bugs are now gone and that the product is quicker and more feature packed now, as well as allowing us to more easily add new features and fix bugs as reported by you guys.

If you're not a Beta tester, then you should stick to v1.3.8 until v1.4.0 goes Gold
A sincere Thank You to all our brave testers for your help in making this product bug-free! I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your diligence (and patience with me while I fix it ).

If you like the product you can show your support by nominating it for mod of the month here: vBDownloads v1 (vB4) - vBulletin.org Forum or here: vBDownloads v1 (vB3) - vBulletin.org Forum, and also please rate it to help cancel out the users who 1 star our mods.

Complete Change Log

Feature: Deactivating vBDownloads in the AdminCP vBulletin Options now allows you to set a Closed Reason message
Change: 18 permissions checking error messages that legitimate, non-exploiting users will never see now have more descriptive error messages
Fix: The Edit / Delete links for comments would not show up for comments that did not belong to the viewing user, even if the viewing user was a Downloads Manager
Fix: The screenshots display can now line wrap, fixing glitches with narrow skins that have more than a couple of screenshots
Fix: The upload script is now more tolerant to aborted and resumed upgrades from v1.3.8.
Fix: The Branding was accidentally made global, it's only intended to display in vBDownloads itself


Thank you for your continued support
