Sourceforge download doesn't work

tried to download from (the deeply hated) Sourceforge site. The download page redirects to the project files directory, instaed of starting the download. I tried different browsers, no blockers, JS enabled. 3 days ago it worked, now it does not.

I tried also other (older) versions, but with all files the same issue.

Sad to see, that such a brilliant project is hosted on the most untrustworthy and buggy repository on the planet.

Has anyone similar problems, or am I the only one?

    I don't know what to tell you, but the downloads seem to work fine from here. I don't have a suggestion for you.
