We’re proud to introduce our new GOG.com Downloader. We’re releasing it in two versions: the current stable release 3.0 (http://www.gog.com/downloader), and a beta
version 3.1, which sports one of many new features to come - the "universal queue". This and many new coming features will be revealed and tested through beta releases.
This new feature allows you to add games and bonus content to the queue from any device connected to the Internet thanks to Push technology, as long as the beta release of the Downloader is running on, for example, your home PC with Windows XP or higher.

There are three steps you have to take in order to try out our beta versions of the "My account" section and the Downloader:
1) Go to http://www.gog.com/account/beta and enable the beta version of the "My account" section ,
2) Download the beta release of our new Downloader from our forum here: http://static.gog.com/download/d3/beta/Setup_Downloader_3.1.2b.exe,
3) Now, from any device that has a browser and Internet connection, go to your "My games" section (http://www.gog.com/account), click on the desired game on your shelf, switch the GOG.com Downloader mode to ‘ON’ (without it, the content will be downloaded through your browser, instead of the Downloader).
Now you can initiate the download of the game, as well as the bonus content, through the GOG.com Cloud, just by clicking on the buttons below.

The above steps are one time only and give you access to future Beta releases.

We encourage everyone to test-drive (but be aware there can be bugs, problems etc.).

This is just the beginning of the new things coming to the Downloader and "My Account" section of GOG.com, so stay tuned for further news and updates.

Any feedback, suggestions and bug reports are more than welcome.

In case you encounter any issues you can always downgrade to the stable release of the Downloader.
Here are the necessary steps you need to take:
1) Open the Control Panel and go to "Add/Remove Programs" (on Windows XP) or "Programs and Features" (on Vista or 7),
2) Find the GOG.com Downloader on the list and uninstall it - this should completely remove the beta release. Be sure to close the Downloader before trying to uninstall.
4) Go to http://www.gog.com/downloader , download the current version and install it,
5) Go to http://www.gog.com/account/beta , switch the slider to the "OFF" position.

I installed the stable version, but when I try to login another login screen appears, and goes on in an infinite loop.

I also stuck in neverending loop of login screens. Cool! :-D

EDIT: Somehow, it is solved now.

The login issues have been fixed server side. Try to log in again. Thank you.
So, there's no way to access the installer from the Downloader itself, only by opening the containing folder and doing it manually. Is this the way it was intended?

There's a magnifying glass icon besides each download, if you click it, it will take you to the folder you're downloading to. Is that the answer you're looking for?
I understand that. I guess what I mean is will there be an Install button or double-click function to run the installer straight from the Downloader?

In settings there's an option to automatically launch the installers upon finished download. For other means of running the installer, we can think about adding an option to the context menu. What do you think? :)

I guess the INSTALL button in the old version was ok. A context menu addition would make sense, but the double-click function seems the most intuitive... I guess for the bonus content that function would just open the containing folder? I have to say I'm loving the site and Downloader, keep it up!

No, in case of a bonus (mostly zip files) it won't open anything.
Thanks for a suggestion.
I'd like to make two recommendations. The first is an often heard one, which would allow you to exit the GOG Downloader, without having the need to minimise it first and then close it from the tray.

Second, it there any chance of picking up the system used by the JGOG downloader, which puts additional content into a separate folder. I know it may not bother everyone and can be done manually, but it would be a nice touch when there's a large number of extras that get mixed with setup files (especially when there are several).
I'd like to add the ability to save the download list within the Downloader, right now the list clears after restarting the app. This goes with my original request to manage/install the downloads from the program itself.
On the stable version, even when 'minimized to system tray' the downloader is still in the alt-tab list. And it really should have an option in the settings with 'Minimize to system tray on close', that's pretty much an industry standard these days.
