Issue re-opend(new status: feedback) because of again a case in which sourceforge is using adware.1 3
Sourceforge offers worldwide lots of mirrors and thus good download speed worldwide for opensource projects. But they promise not to bundle their adware installer with our software2.

The question is: can we trust sourceforge not to bundle NoteFly with adware?
Now sourceforge again bundling adware with Nmap.1
NoteFly decided to stop using the download link to sourceforge on the download page for now.
NoteFly now also mirrors it's sourcecode repository on github.
The sourcecode is now also on:
