QDL, cuteTube and cuteRadio get updates, make sure you stay current

Big changes are afoot at long time Symbian stalwart developer Marxoft, with a brand new release of his Qt-based DownLoad manager (QDL), plus corresponding new versions of cuteTube and cuteRadio, see all the quotes and links below. Note that these new versions are newer than those in the AppList Store (which seems to have gone quiet).

From Stuart, regarding QDL:

QDL has now been updated to version 2.1.0, with an initial release for the Symbian platform. This is a major update with an entirely new codebase and improved plugin APIs, including support for plugins written in JavaScript aswell as Qt/C++ (I will hopefully document these soon). New features include global and download-specific custom commands (executed when the download is completed), and support for dynamic settings requests (such as an option to choose a video format or provide login credentials) from plugins when making download requests.

But what you really want to see are the new versions of his YouTube client and his Internet Radio app. So....

With regarding cuteTube:

cuteTube2 for Symbian has now been updated to version 0.2.8. This update fixes playback and download of some videos that had previously stopped working. However, due to a lack of support for SSL in the Symbian multimedia backend, videos that require SSL will remain unplayable unless downloaded first.

In addition to the playback/download fix, the update includes a small UI change to use the status bar for page titles, resulting in some extra space for content.

You can update to 0.2.8 by getting the SIS package from here.

And regarding cuteRadio:

cuteRadio for Symbian has now been updated to version 0.4.2. This is a minor update that includes a small UI change to use the status bar for page titles, resulting in some extra space for content.

You can update to 0.4.2 by choosing 'Update' within the application, or by getting the SIS package from here.

Great work from Stuart, they both seem to work perfectly - yes, even in 2016 - on Symbian Belle (Delight) here on my Nokia 808. Comments welcome regarding compatibility below!

I've been trying to establish why these updates don't appear in AppList, to no avail. Anyone know?
