Very nice, uses all of my 4mbit connection on a Quake Wars demo download. But here is no custom download folders for specific filetypes. But that will surely come (I hope). Can't find a way to open it other than starting a new download. Annoying.

:shock: Oh no, another new version of AB with another new fancy feature, but wasn't be better to concentrate on elimination of old and annoying bugs?

I must admit I am extremely disappointed with the new release. How many more people would Anderson have pleased by implementing the long asked for changes INSTEAD of the download manager. I can't even remember an overwhelming request for a download manager at all.
I am getting bored with this now and am going to keep quiet from now on (probably!) about it but I have come to the conclusion there must be some overriding unforthcoming reason why Avant is being developed like this. A great shame.

I just hope system buttons and tabs width are fixed.
I did not download this beta, so I don't know.
And.. yes, I know I'm dreaming but I would really like to see "Groups" back where they were.

No change in System Buttons, and you are not alone in dreaming.

Well... If it's not going to be fixed in the first release, I think I won't be the only one to leave Avant for good, too.

Leaving Avant just because the buttons are on the bottom instead of the top? :roll:

I realize its a wanted feature. But its no reason to stop using it.

Well, I think it is instead. If you add the group fetaure and the tab width. But, most of all, is the felling of being unhearded.

Too bad that there aren't any bugfixes in the new beta.
Thanks Anderson for checking out my AB 11.0 feature request list,
now it's time to go on with 11.8:

Since I'm hearing, so far, that there isn't really anything better about the new release, I think I'm going to stick with 11.5 until the 11.6 final is released.

Yes for right now. He just took 11.5 and added the download manager to it and named it 11.6.
