#7754 closed defect (fixed)

plugin management: unable to activate plugin after aborted download

Windows XP; Ubuntu 11.10

When clicking "cancel" while downloading a plugin (e.g. ImageImportPlugin which is larger and therefore taking longer than most others), the partially downloaded file remains in the plugin directory. Due to this, the plugin cannot neither be used (as it is incomplete) nor be downloaded again (as it is existing) from within JOSM without manually deleting the file in the plugin directory.

If possible, shouldn't cancelling the download remove the partially downloaded file from the plugin directory?

Better download only to a temp file and check the file before deleting the old one which is often still functional.
