Via onze meuk-submit vernomen wij dat Jouni Vuorio zijn jv16 PowerTools voorzien heeft van de versie 1.4 release candidate 1. Dit programma is onmisbaar bij het onderhouden van het Windows besturingssysteem; de ingebouwde command line, de file-tools en de registry-cleaner laten je installatie een stuk sneller en schoner lopen. De volgende release notes zijn aanwezig:
New key features include:
- New main GUI - all the tools are now in the main window, right on your finger tips.
- Registry Monitor - allows you to monitor what's really going on in your registry.
- Registry find and replace - allows you to find and replace data directly from the registry
- File cleaner - find all the unneeded files from your computer with a one click.
- Start menu cleaner - find all the broken shortcuts from your start menu.
- Directory tool - allows you to do some maintenance tasks to your dirs.
- Script wizard - allows you to create scripts very easily, jv16 PT's scripts allows you to do many great things.
- Custom restore - allows you to see the contents of a registry backup and restore only the parts from it you want.
- Option to ignore MRU list entries in the registry cleaner - MRU lists can be safely removed but there's really no point in that, the lists will be created again when the software is next time run.
- Improved registry cleaner - it finds even more but is still totally safe to use.
- Improved performance - major optimisations in all sections of the program makes it even faster, beta testers have seen up to 200% gains in the program's performance.
- New automation features - the script engine has been almost totally rewritten, there are now over 280 script commands which can automate virtually anything you do with your computer.
- CD-ROM mode - the program automatically detects if it's being run from a CD-ROM, in such case it understands not to attempt to write anything to its setting files.
- This version does not contain any graphics. The new gfx are currently under work and they will be ready for the final version.
- This version contains the old documentation, new docs will be ready for the final version.
- This version is time limited, you can only use it for 30 days. After that it's not possible to use the RC1 even if you uninstall it first. The program doesn't, however, leave any hidden registry entries or files behind nor does it modify the contents of your files without your permission.
- Do not start to translate this version yet, there still will be some changes to the language interface.
- Please understand that this is still beta stage software and it's only meant for testing purposes.
