==============

        * Translations updated and added new ones.

        Thanks to Robert Millan	<zeratul2@wanadoo.es> for the patch.

        <mark@heily.com> for this patch.

        * GTM now works with wget 1.8.1. Thanks to Philip Langdale
        <philipl@mail.utexas.edu> for the patch. Many thanks to many others
        who took the time to come up with a patch to fix this.

        * The applet now opens GTM if the network is on. This is by default
        off but you can change it on the applet properties.

==============

        * Updated translations

        * Updated English manual and translated it to Portuguese

        * Fixed bugs:
                - When checking if the user could write to a certain
                directory all the groups the user was in where not
                checked so it was possible to write while the application
                said otherwise.

                Leblanc <gleblanc@linuxweasel.com>

        * OAF instead of gnorba, thanks to Christophe Fergeau

        * Added support for HTTPS protocol since wget supports it but you
        need to upgrade wget to 1.7

        * Proxy settings are better looking now

        * Timeout value for wget is configurable now

        * Added new pref to run a shell command when all downloads
        completed (in other words, when gtm has done all it can do without
        user intervention).

        * Fixed bugs:
                - Crash when the config file was corrupted thanks to
                Jo�o Alves Marques Carneiro <ee96090@fe.up.pt>
                - Check that target dir exists and is writable
                - Do not overwrite an existing file without asking the
                user if he wants a override or a resume
                - Fixed some problems in the spec file, thanks to Alex 
                Converse

        * Added man pages of the gtm and gtm_applet thanks to Christian
        Marillat <marillat@wanadoo.fr>.

            - The buttons on the download info page where not disable on
            startup
            - Wrong error message if the file already existed in the download
            dir when the new download was added. Replace the file to solve it
            - Correct wrong English strings (thanks #i18n people)
            - Wrong call to gtk_rc_get_style instead of gtk_widget_get_style

        * Added new log text box to the application and removed all the
        poping windows for download log events

        * Added the ability to auto hide the download info page, controled

        * Added a toolbar button to toggle the download info page (removed
        the show download info page from the preferences dialog box)

        application restart

        * Fixed UI problems on the preferences dialog box

        * Compacted the download info page

            - Update the check interface time without a restart
            - BUG 8

            - When loading a file not downloaded gave an error of
              already existing file
            - If the auto download was unset because an error occurred
              and the user had the option to stop download on a error this
              auto download change was not saved on the configuration file
            - Changing the auto download from the dialog properties
              stopped the download
            - If you do a restart the percentage on the list doesn't get
              updated right away
            - If the file size is unspecified the downloaded size and the
              total and session time doesn't grow
            - Hide the progress bar on the download info if it doesn't make
              sense
            - If the download is complete show the downloaded file size
              instead of unspecified in the case downloads of unknown size

        * Sharpen the application icon


version 0.4.7
=============

        * New default settings for application first use.

        * Totally redesign the applet properties box and also changed
        the way download dir works in the applet add and new dialog boxes. 
        Now it's more consistent.

	* Lots of BUG fixes (2, 4, 7, 9, 10, 11)

        * New application and applet icons


version 0.4.6
=============

        * New dialog box to add a list of files to be downloaded differing 
        only in a sequence number (code contributed by Matthew Tuck
        <matty@chariot.net.au>).

        * Fixed lot of error messages showing when network was down (thanks
        to Gianluca Montecchi <gianluca@pluto.linux.it> for the patch)

        * Scroll the file list to make the file just started visible
        (automatically or manually started)

        * Applet properly resizes to different panel sizes

        * Fixed incorrect CORBA communication error messages reported to the
        user

        * Applet transparency problems solved. Now the applet properly
        sets its background with different GTK themes and panel backgrounds

        * GTM and GTM applet now set their icons (looks cool when iconized)

        * Fixed wget timeout bad argument

        * Added ability to drag files from GTM, also the new file dialogs
        now accept drag data.


version 0.4.5
=============

        * New dialog box with list statistics thanks to Ross Arnold

        * The application doesn't crash while starting up because the
        CORBA bug was causing this

        * Fixed a CORBA bug making the applet crash when a URL was dropped
        or added from the dialog box. Or crash with option -g

        * List order is now saved thanks thanks to Ross Arnold for the fix

        * Better networking detection and also works on NetBSD. Thanks to
        Ian Campbell <ijc25@cam.ac.uk> and Mario Kemper 
        <magick@bundy.lip.owl.de> (the last one made it work on NetBSD)

        * The gtm_applet saves a default properties to be used when it
        doesn't have session properties to use.

        * Now it is possible to disable the selection of the download dir
        on the applet dialog boxes. Using this the gtm regexp or the default
        are used instead.

        * Fixed the problem making the total size reducing everytime a
        download was continued (The stats went crazy because of this).

        * Now it's possible to change the button click event of the
        applet (thanks to Ross Arnold (<ronz@users.sourceforge.net>).

        * Ross Arnold (<ronz@users.sourceforge.net>) added regular
        expressions based on the download URL to select the download dir.

        * Applet correctly transparent now (thanks to Ross Arnold
        <ronz@users.sourceforge.net>).

        * Changed the confirm remove to confirm remove for incomplete files
        and confirm remove complete files (thanks to Ross Arnold
        <ronz@users.sourceforge.net>).

        * The proxy options can be set even if the global proxy is not used.
        This is needed because the user might activate the proxy later and
        wants to be sure the proxy options are correct.

        * From the toolbar you can toggle the disable auto download option
        for selected files.

        * From the download info page it is possible to enable/disable auto
        download or proxy usage.

        * Nailed the bug making the progress stop working for files dropped
        on the applet.

        * With the new translation setup Kenneth Christiansen
        (<kenneth@gnu.org>) help me to put up GTM will be translated before a
        new release


version 0.4.4
=============

        * The file list is saved to disk not on the end but during program
        usage. Now if program shutsdown (due to power failure on the machine)
        you will not loose the large list you have to transfer.

        * Added sound for events add to the list, transfer started and
        transfer complete. A beep is possible instead of sound

        * Moved the proxy configuration from the regular configuration to the
        private configuration

        * Fixed a proxy bug that was almost invisible (thanks to
        Damian Bickhoff <q9405096@brampton.cqu.edu.au>).

        JeongHee <Keizi@mecom.net>).


version 0.4.3
=============

        * Applet stuff:

                * Replaced the button for the newURL with a pixmap of a
                empty tray that becomes full when you drop something on
                the tray. You can click on the pixmap like you clicked on
                the button.

                * Moved button that starts GTM to a menu item

                * The applet properties is saved when the panel requires it

                * Properties dialog box to set the default download dir
                (for the applet), disable/enable change of download dir on
                the dialog add or new and disable/enable confirmation of
                dropped URL

                * CORBA interface no longer opens dialog boxes so they
                must be added to the applet.

        * Option to enable/disable confirmation of dropped URL

        * Persistent of preferences is not delayed to program
        finish but is done right after the preferences change

        * Option to show/hide the download info page

        * Saving of geometry includes height now. Loading of
        geometry takes in account that the saved geometry could
        be incorrect for the current gtk theme font

        * An empty download dir appeared the first time stuff was
        dragged to gtm_applet

        * Added a command line option to make gtm send an URL
        download request to him self (thanks to Ken Lierman
        <klierman@bigfoot.com> for the patch)

        * Prevented the user from adding duplicate URL

        * Option to disable auto download when the user stops a
        download

        * Changed the order of the pages on dialog properties

        * French translation (thanks to Christian Marillat
        <marillat@alpes-net.fr>)

        * Correct resize of the toolbar after changing style

        * start label renamed to start/resume

        * Danish translation of the program (thanks to Kenneth Christiansen
        <kenneth@ripen.dk>).

=============

        * New accelarators for the application

        * Total redesign the preferences dialog box

        * Total redesign the properties dialog box

        * New dialog to add URL to download. With this you can drag more than
        one URL at a time from gmc and gftp.

        * New menu edit with:
                - Select all
                - Unselect all
                - Properties (Moved from donwload menu)

        * Changed the gtm CORBA interface:
                - Open a dialog box to enter a new URL to download
                - Open a dialog box with a list of URL to be added to the list

        * Drag and drop from gftp (you need at least gftp-2.0.5a because the
        author fixed some bugs on dnd) and gmc (I tested only this two but I
        think it works with more programs I just didn't test it).

        * New program preferences:

                  dialog box new

        * Portuguese translation updated.

        * Bug fixes:
                - Fixed the incorrect sizing of the application. Now the
                  download info page never gets clipped
                - Some strings were untranslated and forgot to start the
                  translation system on the applet
                - Some people using LC_ALL environment variable had problems
                  because wget messages got translated and gtm couldn't talk
                  with wget
                - DND was not working on the file list and it is the only
                  place you can drag stuff (dropping URL to download on menus
                  and toolbar was stupid)
                - Removed the predefined location of wget which was causing
                  problems to people installing gtm with rpm and used a
                  diferent location of wget
                - Removed stupid information showing up when the file was
                  completely downloaded
                - The total and session speeds were all round down
                - Disable auto download of a file when the user manually stops
                  the transfer


version 0.4.1
=============

        * Bug fixes. The user important ones:
                - When an error ocurred the download stopped but auto
                  download system started again showing the same error
                  message. Now after an error auto download is disabled for
                  the file with the error.
                - Apply preferences signal for property boxs was ignoring
                  page_num.
                - When the URL had encoded characters they were	not decoded
                  and the statistics stuff was dead but the file was 
                  correctly downloaded.

        * Possibility to change the location of the file on the network using
        properties dialog box.

        * Portuguese translation updated.


version 0.4.0
=============

        * Lots of bug fixes. The user important ones:
                - Drag and drop from netscape to applet was broken
                - Incorrect statistical information
                - Not using LANG=en_US and wget output was not correctly
                  processed and would make like the program didn't work for
                  people with other LANG then en_US. (thanks to Yuri Valentini
                  <yuri@mo.nettuno.it>
                  for pointing this out)
                - Using setenv to set environment variables prevented the
                  program from working on Solaris
                - Using libtool and it was not needed

        * New and more useful interface. Also fixed some inconsistent stuff.

        * Spec files are now compatible with rpms distributed with RedHat 6.0.

        * Auto download. With this you can choose the number of simultaneous
        downloads and when you connect to the network the program automatically
        starts downloading the files. (thanks to Gianluca Montecchi 
        <gianluca@pluto.linux.it> for his help)

        * Program icon for panel entries (thanks to Kevin Fox
        <bob@thestuff.net> for the icon)

        * Brazilian translation of the program (thanks to Marcus Brito
        <pazu@linuxbr.com.br>).

        * Update Portuguese translation


version 0.3.1
=============

	* Changed the applet to be more compact.

	* Drag and drop changed. You can drag URL from netscape if you want to.

	* Wget log processing now works fine and catches most common errors.
	But doesn't yet support multiple file downloads with one URL. This
	also make work the download information stuff.

	* Spanish translation of desktop files thanks to 
	Ra�l Alexis Betancort Santana <a2363@correo.dis.ulpgc.es>.

	* Fixed some CORBA related stuff.

	* Fixed a stupid bug that blocked the program when the connection was
	staled or slow

	* Spanish translation of the program thanks to 
	Ra�l Alexis Betancort Santana <a2363@correo.dis.ulpgc.es>.

	* Configure option to disable applet building.

	* Italian translation of desktop files and help files thanks to	
	Gianluca Montecchi <gianluca@pluto.linux.it>.


version 0.3.0
=============

	* Changed a little bit the help files but they are still not very
	useful.

	* Added new popup menu to the list of downloaded files.

	* More buttons on the toolbar. If it is too ugly or useful please
	tell me.

	* Added a new properties dialog box to configure the files being 
	downloaded. This way it's possible to change options after using
	the dialog box new.

	* Added buttons and menus to give the user the chance to restart the
	download.

	* Added new option to disable proxy when the user adds a new URL
	to download

	* Added the Italian translation of the program (thanks to Gianluca 
	Montecchi <gianluca@pluto.linux.it>). 

	* Added a new panel applet to the package that interfaces with the 
	application using CORBA. This applet can be a good point to start 
	for other developers that want to use GTM to handle transfers 
	(for now only downloads but I think I can implement more). The 
	applet is capable of launching GTM, ask to open a new download URL 
	on GTM and accept links (using drag and drop) from netscape and 
	give them to GTM. 

	* Changed the method to make sure that only one GTM was running 
	using CORBA server instead of the pid. 

	* Added CORBA support but I don't know if I have implemented 
	correctly because I don't know well the technology. But it's working.

	* Fixed some typos
