> Changes / New:
- Huge changes to the GUI to keep up with current and newer OS.
- Added very powerful search functionality immediately accessible via the main window.
- Added pre-defined search queries. For instance search for pictures, video etc.
- Detect whether drives are added or removed from the system and automatically update the drive selection combobox without affecting the currently selected drive or image file.
- Automatic drive add or removal detection can be enabled / disabled in Options (On by default).
- Ability to show graphical represenation of good vs bad blocks on all objects, files, partitions, tracks etc via the Properties dialog.
- Good vs bad blocks are also shown in the Managed Image File Manager [Professional license]. Here it is possible to select a block or zoom into the block and auto-fill the Address and Blocks' fields to easily define what blocks need to be re-read etc.
- Added easy history browsing via the breadcrumbs control.
> Improvements:
- Improved opening image files while another process (Refreshing) is ongoing.
- Improved checking if a file is already opened, no matter what method is used to open the file.
- A managed clone will detect when its target drive is connected to the system.
- Avoid trying to read PathTable found ISO9660/Joliet folders without a size again and again in case of read errors.
- Huge changes in the underlying GUI code/engine to be able to keep up with modern OS and prepare for the future.
- Improved the search engine dramatically to be extremely powerful. Easily find fragmented files, extents, streams, etc. etc.
- Improved message boxes.
- Improved breadcrumbs control so that is behaves similar than modern OS.
- Improved image file (ISO, IMG, VDI, IBP/IBQ, ...) access and reading, for most type images files, so that it is a lot faster now.
- Show Media in the breadcrumb bar when selecting a drive (or when starting up with a drive).
- Show NTFS File System Root properties.
- Better filtering of illegal characters from devices names.
- Chosing large fonts also auto-selects the use of larger icons.
- Double clicking a Partition, Track or Session in ListView now also shows its children in ListView (except for Audio CDs).
- File systems are listed in ListView as well, when the track or partition in selected in the TreeView.
- Easy way via ListView to start a scan for missing files and folders, when a partition without file systems is selected.
- Ability to right mouse click and show a file's resource fork.
- Updated file system icons.
- Avoid excessive IBP updating, mainly when completing on demand.
- Lots of improvements, changes and re-writes in the core code / engine, as this is a living project and to deal with the ever growing new functionality.
- Various other, not listed, GUI improvements.
> Fixes:
- Do not allow to select a new device via the back and forward (history) buttons when critical GUI List/Tree Item processes are ongoing.
- Fix it so that a check to see if a file contains video keeps returning consistent data after for instance Extract2Mpg has been chosen.
- Fixed rare stack overflow when exploring NTFS, in case of many small nested folders.
- Fix and return consistent data after an NTFS search for deleted files/folders when sorting is turned off entirely.
