Issue #1425 resolved

cannot download file having a plus sign in its name

created an issue

Steve Borho made a new release for TortoiseHg 0.8.2 but nobody can download it:

http://cdn.bitbucket.org/tortoisehg/stable/downloads/TortoiseHg-0.8.2-hg-1.3.1+1444a42f6052.exe

Further testing reveals that this is caused by the plus sign ('+') in the filename.

If bb can't serve such files, then it should probably reject them on upload.

BTW, thanks a lot for providing this cool site. Well done!

    A quick workaround is to replace the plus sign with its equivalent %2B

    The URL is now:

    http://bitbucket.org/tortoisehg/stable/downloads/TortoiseHg-0.8.2-hg-1.3.1%2B1444a42f6052.exe

    The "quick workaround" mentioned above should probably be the permanent fix. If BitBucket URLencodes the filename in the link everything should work fine.
