I made this because that plugin had bugs piling up and it wasn't being maintained. I originally made this for SMAC early in the year, but decided to release it as a separate plugin so that anyone could use it in other projects, including my own.

I incorporated this quick list of ideas to start:

  • The auto-updating plugin should update itself, so that other plugins can always rely on the latest features/fixes.
In addition, XML wasn't very pawn friendly, and there was a bug that scattered files if the URL or local path was too long. This plugin also lets the user to choose which extension they want to use (some had crashing issues with Sockets).
