Last year, I posted about the v2.0 of the Download Proxy.
At the time, the main event was the change of the technological stack and a restricted set of transformations.
Today, I happily publish a version 2.1.
Here are the main changes.
As a developer, I’ve had my share of side projects but, being the lone wolf I am, I always worked alone on those.
This year, the creative community I’m part of decided on achieving something that would require some work.
I thought I had a quite clear vision and decided to manage this project.
Here’s what I take away from it.
A few years back, I had problems downloading files I needed in order to work.
It’s not uncommon for developers to have higher access rights on their machine, but this almost never applies to the firewall.
So, you may have the right to install all software you need and yet still be unable to download it without a two-day-long exchange with a security service located in another city.
And that’s when I came up with the Download Proxy.
