The latest Uget 2.2.0 is now in our main repository.
New Notable Features:

Support for downloading from YouTube*
Support for downloading from MEGA
Batch Downloading up to 3 Wildcard Ranges
Better support for Wayland
New Browser Extension* (thanks to new team member, Gobinath) -> Get Extension

YouTube Note: uGet respects the YouTube Policies so depending on the individual settings of a video it may not be possible to download video from YouTube. The vast majority of videos will be available for use in uGet. The reason this was done instead of using something youtube-dl is because this method allows uGet for Android to also download YouTube videos as well as not have to worry about the ever changing APIs of YouTube that consistently break alternative methods of downloading.

Browser Extension: the new extension is compatible with Firefox, Chromium, Google Chrome, Opera, and Vivaldi. It is possible other browsers may be supported in the future. The extension was originally created as a 3rd Party Extension for Chrome so it has the project name "uGet Chrome Wrapper". Now that Gobinath, the developer of the extension, has joined the team and made it compatible with other browsers, the extension will be renamed in the near future to better reflect the functionality.
I have tested manually adding a MEGA link URL into the new version, and it worked as advertised. Next up is testing Youtube and the browser extension.
