Hey Alex,
I just upgraded to ubuntu 20.04, and now the previously installed version of zrythm doesn’t start, and the installer (0.8.298) won’t run, because it’s an unknown version of linux.

I assume that the 0.8.333 version has a similar problem, but I can’t download it, because I waited too long (4 days?). Since the downloads are only being sent out every week or 3, do you reckon you could extend the time limit on them for a bit longer? A week would guarantee that everyone gets some weekend time to download them.

@naught101 welcome!

I’ve just removed the time limit and it should now allow up to 5 download attempts with unlimited time. If it still doesn’t work please let me know.
