Steadyflow 0.1.7 is Released - How To Install it in Ubuntu 11.04?

Well if I'm not mistaken, this is my third post within a month concerning a single (pretty useful as well) application called, Steadyflow. Today, because of the growing demand for the application, the developer has announced availability of the latest version 0.1.7. Although it is a pretty simple app by default and until the 0.1.6 version, it did not show the remaining time while downloading a file (oh for those of you who haven't about it.. it's a download manager for your GNU/Linux PC/Laptop).

For your Chrome/Chromium web browsers... it has a separate extension but by default it integrates with Firefox4/3.6+ nonetheless. Here are few of its main features that you'll get with this latest release.

*. Since we all know that Unity and many other major desktops are "obsessed" (not a judgment :) ) with application indicators, Steadyflow 0.1.7 now includes a better indicator menu through which we can control the downloading files with ease (pause/resume/pause-all, etc) 

*. Newly added "copy URL", for adding a URL/download link easily.

*. Now it has an icon of its own for the Unity's application launcher (drag-n-drop files for star downloading).

*. Start/Pause or Delete multiple file downloading at once.

New "indicator menu"...

*. Added support for password authentications for HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and SMB, etc... are among the main features according to the developer.

You can install Steadyflow 0.1.7 in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal by using the below command in your Terminal window.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sikon/steadyflow

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install steadyflow
