Does this have any advantage to the Update plugin?

@john doe: thanks for the link! was looking for this one.

@jonib: i didn't know about the plugin (hard to find something here if you're not speaking russian), but then again farnightly.zip is a cheap standalone downloader. it does not touch your existing far installations in any way.

I kinda guessed it.

Unfortunately I know the feeling, but my best friend Google translation tools is helping me out :wink:

The download section on farmanager.com was cleaned up, much more accessible now, plugins and far nightly builds are now combined. This renders the nightly downloader obsolete and useless.

I've removed the download link.

New download URLs, see first post.
