Notepad++ Cloudflare protected. Download still possible?

I downloaded Notepad++ from https://notepad-plus-plus.org/ for a while now but they changed to a Cloudflare protection some days ago. I'm now no more able to load the page in Ketarin and I can't download anymore. Is there any possibility using a different referrer or any other method to usw Cloudflare protected sites?

I can't find any useful other sites to download the file. Filehippo only has older versions.

Thanks for the help!

With Cloudflare you're pretty well stuck unless you can find a consistent pattern for the download files since the downloads themselves are rarely behind Cloudflare. In this case there is a pattern so you're good. 

You can get the current version number from this using this pattern:


You can then construct the download URL by inserting the version numbers in these patterns:


The download URL does not support HTTPS, but will download once you've injected the version numbers (and major version number in the first field).

Here's a working template for the x86 version (the only one that reliably supports TextFX):


<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
  <ApplicationJob xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" Guid="071dc699-15b5-4a76-8296-d1d9b91d2449">
