Request for MD5 Checksum

I would like to see Trimbal put the MD5 checksum for the downloads on the DL page along with a short explanation on how to use it. This might help to prevent some of the weird installation and program issues.

MD5 has been cracked. It is very much possible to create a malware with the same MD5 hash as the actual installer. Also I think the EULA prohibits third parties from redistributing the installer, so I don’t see what a public hash of the official installer would be good for. Just stick to downloading from sketchup.com and you know you get the right file.
