Last night I tried to use the import menu, where you should be able to search and download sounds directly from Freesound.org.
However, it didn't seem to work.
It is a nice feature if it works, but maybe it should be removed if it has been decided that resources are better spent on other things.
Downloading the sound flies in the usual manner is no big deal - and I for my part would like to support the freesound project by uploading sound files once i get the proper equipment.
it is a good thing not to have to worry about licensing and copyright issues.
