Clicking on the download link ws blocked by ublock origin. Weird.



After the last Sourceforge malware-bundling debacle (Can't even remember who it was at this point--someone who said Sourceforge seized their repo from them and then repackaged it with malware), gorhill added Sourceforge to the uBlock blacklists.

Good riddance, I say.


It was the GIMP guys, btw.


uBlock Origin indeed blocks the sourceforge URLs. Not a bad idea, I would say. Makes you think twice.
