I've clean installed 10.13 on my macbook pro and went to download S3, but no matter what I do I can only download Scrivener 2.6 from the website...

I've tried a browser download from the website and directly through using: wget http://scrivener.s3.amazonaws.com/Scrivener.dmg in terminal, but it always downloads the old version?

Bridey sent me the installer privately so I'm now ok (thanks!) :D

wget will not use a browser cache or cookies and is still downloading the old DMG, note in the log below when we get to the final Amazon server it returns a HTTP/1.1 200 OK response showing it is downloading a fresh copy (and 77M is V2.6 installer):

This is an amazonaws problem, probably specific for my particular GeoIP (China...)

I figured (hoped) L&L would be okay with that as the DMG would only give a trial period or need licence info. Didn't make anything public. Just a private link for nontroppo.
