I've tried to download the latest manuals and while gitlab is loading and waiting for rendering the document, the download button is active under Firefox for me and I was able to download the two manuals without having to wait for the rendering to be completed.

Not ideal but much faster than just waiting for the rendering to be done.
... It definitely was NOT available to me until the render was complete (using 100% of available system RAM, slowing the system to a crawl, freezing the mouse cursor for 20-30 secs at a time, close to a full lock-up). I even rebooted and started the full procedure from scratch, same result. As noted, after starting the render, FF noticed the process was taking "a long time" so it offered to either let it continue or abort; if I choose abort, I can then click on download and it works OK.

Are you using FF on Windows? Win-10? I'm still using Win-7 on that machine, but I would not expect this to make a difference.
Know that, been there with FF on my 10-year-old Win7 machine. :roll: Lead to me uploading late at night with an interesting magazine at hand. Now, I've got a new Win10 laptop for a few months and things have changed. I won't claim it's realtime now but FF works significantly faster (not only) in this matter. I'm not affiliated to MS etc. ... 8-)

Here's another approach that works for me. I go into the Draft Documentation folder and there's a little download icon, just to the left of the Clone button. Clicking this gives me the option to download the directory contents as a zip file.
I could delete the old v0.9 documents from this directory so things should go twice as fast.

I can't see how to download individual files this way, but this is possibly better than having to preview each file first.

UPDATE:

First, thanks to Nigel for the hint, I had not noticed that before, and now that the older revs are gone, this will be my preferred action (though even with older copies there, this method was still much faster). I was tempted for a moment to say that option wasn't there before, but, well, you know....

However, I tried the 'normal' method again today, per Didier's suggestion, and it now works fine (same PC, same browser, etc.). Were I paranoid, I might suggest something was deliberately changed on gitlab's side as a result of the problems yesterday, but I suppose it's far more likely that there was simply something wrong on the github site over the weekend and it is now resolved.

So, it's a good ending all around; problem solved and even better, problem avoided.

@Walter - I've no idea if any of these situations change the circumstance for uploading, but thanks anyhow for trimming the older copies.

Again, my thanks to all the folks that replied, tested, commented, etc.

I also have a hard time updating the repository due to the large files on a slow internet connection.

Progress is a racing snail: Martin has implemented NEXTP and PRIME? so you can look for really great primes now and check integer numbers for being prime or not. I'm afraid we could claim now
OUR PRIMES ARE THE GREATEST
(but we don't live in that country so we claim it gently only and leave the marketing to those who can do this better).

A new wp43s.exe is available for you to do all the checks you ever wanted to do. :D

Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

One of the greatest primes that can be entirely displayed on the 43S is this:

I found it using NEXTP, checked with PRIME?, and verified with Wolfram Alpha. You can find even greater primes using the 43S (e.g. 2^3217-1 featuring 969 digits) but it will become difficult to display them entirely.

Modified the center part of our 43S due to the possibility to dump screenshots in a file (SCR.DMP):
