Does Sourceforge still bundle the installer with malware?

Sourceforge was bundling the installer versions of software packages with malware. This malware was really a pain to remove. Does it still do this? If it does, then maybe a read me on how to avoid this will be helpful.

SourceForge doesn't force authors to bundle adware, nor does it bundle anything surreptitiously.
Each author makes that choice himself/herself.
We choose not to bundle any adware.
