Java SI-GUI -> Downloading works


Just a small update: Downloading works now –> PASTEBIN (Do not worry, this is not the final UI ;) )

I am still thinking whether to code the UI in JavaFX or Swing. Anyway, I am thinking of a tabbed UI

  • “Download” –> Downloading
  • “Install” –> Installation
  • “Manage” –> Create shortcuts & delete installations (on Windows a “Try to fix problems” (which installs the MS C++ redistributables shipped with the current version). I think IN VERY FUTURE VERSIONS Jay’s cleanup script would be nice to implement
  • “Settings” –> Obvious I guess ;)

This should simplify everything a bit :)

Survey – Help improve SI-GUI


Today some polls. Keep in mind you can choose every download from the archive, every Thinderbox and stable/testing/pre-release builds. So not totally the current situation, but close to ;)

As someone said, that SI-GUI has too much options,  please answer which of those you want to have included.

I put a description in the brackets, which is an automatic behavior most of the time or something gets explained in more detail


Thanks for giving me some insight :)

SI GUI Java – Archive Downloads


So this time all the available daily and archive dowloads (on page 2, there are 707!)

First step towards a better download detection


As you can see, Java SI-GUI will be able to detect all active thinderboxes automatically.

*active -> Having a downloadable file in the “current” folder. Just a small step, but progress ;) [Detection needs under 1 second]

I am not inactive ;) — SI GUI v5


Today I released v5 of SI-GUI. It adds support for 64-bit Windows builds (watch out, they are extreamly rare ;) )

BTW: SI-GUI won’t get new features any more. I keep it to bugfixing as… well… It basically was my first program and it looks like that ;). If I had time I would really like to look into a Java version of SI-GUI…. But apparently no time…. Or not enough ;)

If it is really wanted I could invest some time in late Septemebr / October.

Anyone interested on a redesigned SI-GUI or are you ok with this one?

SI GUI is ready for the Bugzilla migration


So, version is ready for our bugzilla migration. Now this project uses – The url shortener of the TDF for all URLs, so I am going to change the URL leading to bugzilla on the day, or no later then one day after the migration.

BTW: The URL is

Thanks for using SI-GUI :)
