What's new

v2.9 [10 Aug 2012]
- Ready for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion
- Digitally signed for Gatekeeper on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion
- Optimized for Firefox v14 and Chrome v22 browsers
- Added new functionality in the iGetter Extension for Firefox, which allows transfer of download URLs through a new option named "iGetter" available on the Firefox Save Download dialog. This solves the problem with "Content-Disposition" downloads not sent otherwise to iGetter

- Specified application category type for better integration with OS X 10.7 Lion and OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion

- Added support for the new versions of Safari, Firefox, Chrome/Chromium and Opera in iGetter Scriptable Plugin

- Updated SQLite to improve compatibility with cookie file of the latest Firefox versions
- Some fixes and additions to the Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Italian, Polish and Turkish localizations
- Fixed a possible memory leak with the contextual menu usage in DataBrowser
- Fixed the non-functioning "Move Up" and "Move Down" buttons in the "Download Rules" dialog
- Fixed an incompatibility with Safari v5+, that could crash iGetter when launched through the contextual menu integration in Safari
- Fixed a bug that prevented iGetter Extension from loading in Chrome/Chromium v17+
- Fixed an incompatibility with Chrome/Chromium v22+, that caused "Could not load iGetter Plugin" error message in 32bit mode
- Fixed an incompatibility that could crash iGetter Plugin with Safari v1.x browser
- Fixed a bug that caused incorrect cookies to be sent on redirected URLs, in some rare cases
- The History Info panel now always shows the file location, regardless of the file availability on the local file system
