In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.

New and improved in GOG Galaxy BETA 1.1


Sometimes game updates break things. The Rollback feature is here, allowing you to restore your game to any earlier version just a single click. Game updates are now not just optional, but also reversible.

New installation options

Control the installation process. You can now view required disk space, select your language, modify the installation path, and more.

Streamlined navigation

Use the Back and Forward buttons across the entire app to easily navigate between your installed games, the store, and the library.

Friend search

Find other users easily using their email address or username, then add them to your friends with just one click.

Better performance

The new update decreases RAM and CPU usage across the board. The app will now launch faster and take advantage of GPU acceleration on Windows, and App Nap support on Mac OS X.

HiDPI support

Enjoy proper HiDPI scaling and a retina-ready UI for exceptionally high-resolution displays.

Pause and resume

You can now pause the download and installation process at any time, without ever losing your progress.

Compact sidebar

See more of your library and the store with a new, compact sidebar. If you prefer the old look, you can always go back.

And more...

Double click to launch a game instantly from the sidebar, view available languages and space requirements, accept new invites directly from the friends list, and so much more...
