Just a quick update this morning. DisplayFusion v2.2 is progressing along very nicely now that I have more "free time". The translation into different languages is a very time consuming task and is taking a bit longer than expected, but it's nearly complete now. Also, just a reminder that next Monday, September 1st, the price for DisplayFusion Pro will be changed to $15. If you haven't already purchased a Pro license and are thinking about it I would suggest you purchase one in the next week to save a few bucks.
That's all for now, but if anyone has any questions or comments please let me know.
FileSeek v1.5.1 has just been released into the wild. This release is a quick maintenance release aimed at fixing a few minor issues. Here is a quick rundown on the changes:
If you have auto-update notification enabled in FileSeek you will be prompted to download the new version, or you can just head over to the FileSeek page to download it.
I'm very happy to announce the release of FileSeek v1.5 today. This release includes some important fixes, and a couple of new features. Most notably, the exclusion pattern is now applied to folders as well as files. For the complete list of changes I invite you to check out the change log.
I encourage everyone who is running an older version to update today. If you have auto-update checking enabled in FileSeek you will be prompted to update next time you use it.
I would like to send out a big thanks to about a dozen people that found DisplayFusion included in the July 2008 issue of Maximum PC. As a result, they all received shiny new DisplayFusion Pro licenses.

I would like to send a big thanks out to Rolf Beev from Norway. He discovered DisplayFusion in the May 2008 issue of PC World Norge. He was able to send me scans of the cover and article, and in exchange I sent him a shiny new DisplayFusion Pro license.

I would like to send a big shout out to Ian for finding DisplayFusion in the May 2008 issue of PC Pro in the UK. It's always exciting to see my software being published, especially outside of North America. Ian was able to send me scans of the cover and article and for his effort I was more than happy to send a DisplayFusion Pro license his way.

Update: An observant reader (Keith) pointed out that this is the same article that appeared in the PC Authority magazine. I'm guessing that David has his column published in more than magazine. But, that's cool with me as it was published in the UK and Australia, both places I have never been published in.
Do you love hashes? I do! Well, they're helpful when it comes to checking the integrity of a file. That's the reason I created HashTools back in January of 2007, over 1 year ago. This latest release clears up some long-standing issues and adds some much needed features. The new feature I find most useful is the ability to drag and drop files into the HashTools interface. Another new feature that I find myself using quite frequently is the ability for HashTools to automatically load and compare a hash when checking a file. For example, if you are generating an MD5 hash for a file called "MyFile.iso", HashTools will check for a file called "MyFile.md5". If this file exists, it will be loaded and HashTools will compare the hash contained in this file against the generated hash. Maybe this is a feature that only I will find useful, but I hope at least one other person will too.
Check out HashTools today!
Two savvy DisplayFusion users have informed me that they discovered DisplayFusion while reading the June 2008 issue of PC Authority in Australia. Both were able to send me copies of the article and both received free DisplayFusion Pro licenses. I'd like to send out a big thanks to Ian Neale and Tim Burns for making this discovery, and I hope both are enjoying their complimentary licenses.

It brings me great joy to announce that for the second month in a row iTunes Sync has been bundled with a major print magazine. This month, iTunes Sync has found it's way into the June 2008 issue of PC Praxis!

I'm happy to announce that FileSeek v1.3 was released this week. This new version adds sortable columns, the ability to copy selected results from the grid via the right-click menu and the number of characters displayed in the preview pane is now configurable in the options menu. Also, a number of bugs have been fixed as well, like the right-click "Open" command not working sometimes. This version of FileSeek and it's installer are also fully signed for full Vista compatibility.
I urge everyone who is running an older version of FileSeek to download the new version today, and if you haven't tried FileSeek why not give it a try. You can either download an installer or an archive with only the .exe if you want to take it for a test drive before installing. Happy searching!
