by Anton Tomov on Jun 04

Wizcode Virtual Explorer v1.40 changelogJune 4th, 2008 - Wizcode LLC (http://www.wizcode.com) announces another major update of Virtual Explorer. As you can see from the list of changes we worked very hard to improve the previous v1.30 release.


Besides the numerous improvements and bug fixes you will find interesting new functionality such as the new multi-selection logic, the drag selection gesture and the improved search functionality. The new release is very robust and stable and many previously unresolved issues have now been fixed.


We are continuing work on improving Virtual Explorer, our short-term focus will be adding support recycle bin support for registry keys and values, performance improvements and new crypto and compression providers.
