After a beta testing phase, the guys in charge of Free Download Manager released a new version of their well-known software, including new and surprising features, as well as a nice touch towards clearing the reputation of their software.

Quote
What’s new:
  • Flash video download
  • Audio / video files converter
  • Bittorent support
  • Easy file sharing
  • Remote control
  • Portable mode
  • Metalink support
  • General Public License
  • Multilanguage support (desired language may be chosen during installation)

It seems the guys want you to use their software for all your downloading needs Grin. The most important part is the use of the "General Public License", or the GPL, which means the source code for the software is available, and hosted on SourceForge. So now everyone can take a peek at the code to see if something suspicious is lurking there (the software, or more precisely, the page was flagged as harmful by SiteAdvisor in the past).

Just for clarification, the site is flagged as harmful because of the content hosted at its download section. Apparently, the guys wanted to develop a Download.com-like site, but without taking any measurements in the software included. So avoid that particular section like the plague.
