What's new in this version:
- The Synchronize command has been updated: it now offers more options, including the ability to include or exclude files and/folders by masks, an option to restore the older versions of files, as well as an option to synchronize files that have the same last modification time but different sizes.
- A new option that simplifies the use of the Delete command: if AB Commander determines that a file can be deleted by moving it into Recycle Bin, it does that without asking for a confirmation of the operation. (And if you have deleted the file by accident, you can restore it from the Recycle Bin, or by using the Undo command of AB Commander.)
- A new tool, Resize Images, has been added to the Tools menu, that you can use to automate some frequently requested operations on a large number of images, such as to produce a smaller size versions of the images and/or to re-encode the images according to their Exif rotation tags.
- The internal Viewer has been updated to display the large images faster. It now also offers a command to save the rotated images in place, and an option to display the images rotated according to their Exif orientation tags.
- An option has been added that you can use to switch between the "new" flat buttons on the toolbars and their "old" non-flat versions.
- The user interface of AB Commander is updated to better adjust to the non-standard DPI display settings.
- A problem has been corrected that caused the columns of the file panels to grow very wide in some situations.
- A problem has been corrected that caused the Quick Finder not to return the correct results if the "Find text" box included the "less than" character.
- A problem has been corrected that sometimes caused a crash after adding certain folders to the Favorites list.
- A problem has been corrected that sometimes caused the single selection mode to be enabled within AB Commander by Windows after using an application that used the common Open/Save As dialogs in the single-selection mode.
- Several other minor improvements and corrections have been made.
As usual, the trial version of AB Commander comes with a free license for 30 days of full use. If you have not tried it yet, please feel free to download it and give it a try.
And, of course, if you have purchased your AB Commander within the last 12 months, you can upgrade to this version free of charge (for the earlier purchasers the 50% upgrade discount is also available.)
