It's up to the developer to update...

Cnet does not actively monitor for, or acquire, program updates. Rather, it is up to the individual developers to upload their latest versions to Cnet Downloads if they want them to be available through that channel. Unfortunately, the developers of AdBlockPlus have chosen not to submit the latest updates for inclusion on download.com, though you are free to encourage the developer to keep the listing updated.

Regards,
John

yeah, about that...

Actually, Cnet makes it rather hard to update software listings, and it will regularly subscribe you to various crap newsletters without your permission (me logging in a few minutes ago was apparently interpreted as a permission again). It might make sense to put up with all this if download.com is your main distribution channel but it certainly isn't for me. At some point I decided that this is really not worth my time - I sincerely recommend downloading Adblock Plus from https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/1865. Unfortunately, removing Adblock Plus from download.com isn't trivial either, the "Request Product Removal" link is a dummy.

Welcome, Mr. Palant,

The default preference is to send you newsletter updates via email regarding software you have downloaded from Cnet in the past, as well as a few generic newsletters. However, you can opt-out of all of them through your Cnet member profile, utilizing the preferences under both Newsletters (for most newsletters) and My Lists (for download-related notifications).

As to upload.com, I agree it is not a trivial process, even after the most recent site redesign. Such is especially true with software such as AdBlock Plus, which is regularly updated. Thankfully, though, Mozilla offers both a secure site for finding Firefox extensions and a built-in extension updater. As someone with over 100 installed extensions (largely developer- and penetration-related), I find them far more convenient than using Cnet's repositories.
