Main good news are:
# Movable FlashGot Media button replaces status bar icon on Firefox 4 and above.
# Improved oron.com preprocessing for batch direct link downloads (similar FlashGot-supported preprocessed file sharing services are depositfiles.com, fileserve.com, filesonic.com, hotfile.com, megaupload.com, netload.in, rapidshare.com, uploading.com, uploaded.to, ul.to, zshare.com).
# Better accuracy of the Middle mouse button + drag down gesture, which triggers either FlashGot Link or FlashGot Selection, depending on the context (can be disabled by setting the flashgot.gesture about:config preference to false).
# Several performance optimizations, reducing startup time impact by a factor of 5.
# Restored Seamonkey compatibility
# Work-around for Roboform bug breaking "open link in new window" on Firefox 4 when FlashGot was installed.
# Batch download support for linksafe.me (other already supported link protection/redirection services are chooselinks.com, re-links.com, protectlinks.com, rapidsafe.net, relink.us, rsmonkey.com, hideurl.biz, ftp2share.net, rapidbolt.com, linkbank.eu, linkbucks.com, rsprotect.com
# Updated and enhanced batch download support for relink.us (other already supported link protection/redirection services are chooselinks.com, re-links.com, protectlinks.com, rapidsafe.net, rsmonkey.com, hideurl.biz, ftp2share.net, rapidbolt.com, linkbank.eu, linkbucks.com, rsprotect.com (WARNING: Feb 15 2009, the rsprotect.com web site is infected, don't open without NoScript enabled), link-protector.com, stealth.to and lix.in, urlcash.net).
# Updated Japanese translation (thanks k2jp).
# Rapidshare authorization token is "remembered" persistently by FlashGot after the first login from Firefox, in order to work around recent changes in the service forcing users to login very often.
# Many updated localizations.
# International characters in command line arguments are now supported on Firefox 4 (thanks gfdic).
# Enhanced HTTP and FTP authentication support (thanks basinilya).
# "FlashGot Tabs" hotkey relocated to Ctrl-Shift-F3 to prevent accidental reloads.
# Improved FlashGot Options|FlashGot Media panel, to choose a distinct download manager for streaming media capture. Firefox's built-in download manager is recommended because it uses browser's cache whenever possible and supports name guessing, and it's set as the default for FlashGot Media on new installatios.
