.NET Mass Downloader 1.1 Released

The feedback and downloads for .Net Mass Downloader have been quite pleasing! Kerem and I just went through and fixed all the reported bugs so the 1.1 release is better than ever. The big fixes were that we now properly handle paths with spaces in them (see what happens when you have two old DOS guys doing a project!), and if you had trouble behind a proxy server, you shouldn't any more. As always, let us know if you find any problems or have feature requests.

Just as a reminder, to download all the parts of the .NET Reference Source Code that Microsoft has released thus far, use the following command line (one line) on 32-bit:

NetMassDownloader.exe -d "C:\Windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v2.0.50727"
-d "C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.5"

The following command line is for 64-bit:

NetMassDownloader.exe -d "C:\Windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v2.0.50727"
-d "C:\Windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework64\v2.0.50727"
-d "C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.5"
-d "C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.5"

In the 64-bit example, Net Mass Downloader will do the right thing and only download the PDB files once if the same binaries are in different directories.

Of course, with both command lines, if you want to use the source with Visual Studio 2005 or even CodeGear's RAD Studio for you Delphi .NET fans, specify the –output option for the output directory. Follow the directions in the announcement post.

Just so you're not surprised, because we bumped up the version number of Net Mass Downloader, you will see the EULA prompt again.
