Emphetamine is a GNOME-based download manager. Using the GNOME VFS
libraries, it can download over any protocol supported by the existing moniker
plug-ins available. It also makes it easy for new protocols to be supported.
Just write a gnome-vfs plug-in, and the protocol can be used in any
number of places. It also uses libelysium and libelysiumui for some utility
functions, and widgets, like the VFS-enabled file selector.
You can download Emphetamine
and the Elysium Project libraries,
