FYI: SourceForge slow: ~1 hour download 150mb windows test

It used to only take a few minutes to download the file from sourceforge, and then it was often taking 10-15 min, but today I'm about half way through and its been half an hour.

Have you tried downloading from a different mirror?

A different mirror brought it back down to around 10 min. They sure hide that option well!
