This is the second time that version 1.71 of DV is included in the updates, the first time on Oct 4, the second time on Oct 10, 2011. Have there been any changes in between?

Still works great (using 10.5.8). Love watching the ongoing process - Log (wget). Plenty enough configuration/usage options too. Excellent piece of software.

I meant the old icon of version 1.4. Seems to be that there's a new icon (again). This one looks much better...:)

I don't know if you are going to advertise WebDevil here or what. (problem with sales?) I have seen your posts (copied/pasted) all over many sites were DeepVacuum appears. All of them made over last night. You could use at least same nick name everywhere. It may have happened that there was some problem with DV but I always provide users with as good support as possible. In example: stability = 3. Did it ever crash on you? DeepVacuum is rock stable as it is build on wget. wget is a very, very mature program with almost no crash related bugs. Ease of use 1/5? I just got 4/5 from you with exactly the same comment on another site. How come? So please at least test something you are going to write about.

I had trouble doing a simple thing-- just wanted the web page and all web pages linked to it. I found the preference selections to be very confusing and had to figure out what the settings should be by trial and error. In contrast, SiteSucker and Web Devil had much clearer preference selections and instructions.

... $7????? although it has some pretty good features and its pretty easy to use, i would never pay even $7 for it. the interface is messed up. for example, the tabs on the top are a little too high. even after I installed wget, it returns a library link error. a note to the developer(s): this app has a lot of potential, but its just not good enough yet. one more thing: make sure you test it on all the machines you can before you release it as final.

no handling of cookie-controled pages, contrary to SiteSucker for instance (with SS just log in to your favorite page with Safari then leave it on and run SS) -this is a showstopper for me

ok, I can see from the comments that the problem comes from me, but I can't download anything but the index.html, the robots.txt and .cc file from any site - nothing else gets downloaded :( I tried increasing # of retries in prefs as the author suggests somewhere to no avail... Any tip?

I ran Memory Usage Getter while downloading an mp4 file w/ Deep Vacuum. was using about 7 MB of RAM, and about 36% of the processor at the highest point. I'm not sure about it eating up virtual memory, but it seems fine to me. I am a Speed Download fan, but this is a useful app, and it's free.

I have to say that this has to be one of the best site-suckers out there! I have managed to snag hundreds of wallpapers from one website in a matter of minutes with this program. The options, however, were a bit confusing but after a bit of experimenting and a fat internet connection, I was off sucking off sites in seconds. Although, as website admin, a program like this could pose a problem, bandwidth-wise, so depending on certain webservers, you might want to proceed with caution. Especially in some webhosts, using a website harvester can be illegal. But for what does this program does, it does a really good job in sucking them in.

Does anyone know if "minor bug fixes" includes fixing the MAJOR bug by which this program could eat up all of your Virtual Memory?

Great app, though a bit confusing because of its options. Of course, that's a good thing once you figure out how to use them. Most valuable feature for me is that it will install wget so that you can use it from the Terminal. That's a big plus for those of us who don't want to use Fink's wget.

This is the ultimate download utility, it saved me from downloading huge amounts of data again after interruptions. To me works like a charm and makes a better job than other download utilities that you have to pay.

I still get the memory error with v .9 - but as the developer suggested, it works when Safari cookies are turned off. Otherwise it is an amazing program, the most useful GUI for wget I've seen, one that actually makes it easier to use the GUI than the command line.

Lets solve it together. I haven't got such a bug, and cannot reproduce it. You may try to switch of Safari cookies and see if it helps. I encourage everybody to send me any feedback. This is still preliminary version < 1.0.

This is the nicest interface I've seen for wget so far, with selectable presets for easy downloading, but at the same time, advanced users can create more presets to suit their needs.

If y'all wanna check out a similar tool which might work better for you, and "./configure, make, make install" doesn't scare you away, I highly recommend pavuk, which many people (myself included) find less glitchy than "wget". It also has a GUI (via X11). http://www.idata.sk/~ondrej/pavuk/
