CN Download Component

::What It Does::

This component is a file manager repository for the developer in mind. I wanted something that I would use everyday, and i think I have done just that, take a look at all the features below:

- File manger (in unlimited categories)
- Comments, ratings, and social buttons enabled for each download page
- Keeps track of downloads and views seperately.
- Release History available (only shows if it is filled in)
- License Agreement (force user to check the agreement box to download, or just have the license there for them to see in a sleek lightbox)
- Tag your files for related search by tag pages.
- New, Hot, and Updated notice tags show when over or under the limit set in the configuration.
- So many options in the configuration, everything is available to be turned off, if you just want the bare minimum features on the download page.

::Code::
MVC (Model, View, Controller), this is the industry standard, and makes it a lot easier to template the views of this component in your own template. (coded with this in mind)
