Changelog (93170):
  • This is a small fix of the previous release (93068).
  • Fixed a filename encodign bug.
  • Added fallback for missing {Original Name} in file naming pattern.
Changelog (93068):
  • Added a Stop button and Escape Key as way to stop downloads.
  • Swapped the BackgroundWorkers for .NET 4.0 Tasks.
  • Properly unescape UrlEncoded filenames.
  • Updated assemblies.
  • Added a ClickOnce installer link to the download section.

Known issues:
  • Please note that the replacement patterns under the setup are tricky to translate automatically. You might have to re-enter them after you translated the pattern items.
  • If the application is minimized during download it fails to restore. In the task manager right click the application and choose 'Bring To Front'.

Note if upgrading:
  • Due to the change in translation ("Orginal Name" changed to "Original Name") the naming pattern might fail if it was stored in the ini file (or was translated). If this happens when the filenames all become equal to the pattern itself ({Orginal Name}) and only a single misnamed file will show up after a download. To fix this, either correct the pattern in the setup dialog or delete "Pattern=" line in the ini file located at "%appdata%\PicasaDownloader\PicasaDownloader.ini".
  • When the Escape key is pressed the download of the current image is finished.

Please make sure the correct DotNet Framework is installed, so do not add issues/messages on Framework problems.
