Download Monitor is a plugin for uploading and managing downloads, tracking downloads, and displaying links.
Version 1.0.0 is a fresh start/complete rewrite of the legacy 3.0 version using modern best-practices such as custom post types and endpoints.

Since this upgrade process isn't straightforward nor automated I've reverted the version to 1.0.0 to prevent automatic updates.
Legacy versions can still be found here.
The rewrite has trimmed the fat and only kept the best, most useful features. If something is missing, you can always code it yourself - the new system is very flexible and its easy to query files using get_posts.
