vijayk7670, I've updated the link to the one that's on the developer's Web site, but the downloaded application is identified as 1.12, with no release information appended. Hope this will help!

And thanks for pointing out that our link was broken!

cawthorne had trouble on 13 Jan 2013
Hi! I would really like to use this. I have followed the tutorial here: http://www.supermind.org/blog/844/resume-cancelledcrashed-downloads-in-google-chrome-on-ubuntuosx

But I am running into problems. The source which I want to download requires you to be logged into the website. I can do this and download the file in a web browser (like google chrome), but in terminal it errors (presumably, because terminal isn't using any cached login details/cookies/session keys ect.).

As a result of this when I enter the download link that I can use in my web browser, it doesn't work with wget in terminal and just downloads an index.html files, which I would get in my browser if I weren't logged in. :/

Any suggestions?
