    Default v4.0.0.17036 released

    v4.0.0.17036 released - November 26, 2013

    This release fixes our beta timeout behavior and pushes the drop dead date out to January. The previous releases will stop working on Monday, December 2nd. If you haven't updated by then BC will immediately quit without showing anything and you'll need to download the new release manually. We're sorry for the short notice and inconvenience.

    • Fixed beta expiration so it shows the Check for Updates dialog instead of silently closing or crashing.
    • Added 'Reveal in Finder' command to Open With menus.
    • Windows only: Updated unrar support to handle RAR5.
    • Fixed Hex Compare crash.
    • Fixed Check for Updates crash when there isn't an Internet connection available.

    Default v4.0.0.17432 released

    v4.0.0.17432 released - December 20, 2013

    This release is what we intend to release next week as the first public beta. We're especially interested in any crashes or serious issues that crop up, along with any feedback on the new FTP profile support.

    • Added support WebDAV servers, Subversion remote repositories, and Dropbox's cloud storage.
    • Added ability to name and organize FTP profiles and load them based on the name instead of matching user@host.
    • Copying files now copies extended attributes and the resource fork.
    • Added support for importing Beyond Compare 3 settings.
    • Removed buggy built-in PDF-to-text support on OS X and Linux and switched back to Xpdf's pdftotext on Windows.
    • Fixed crash on startup on OS X 10.9
    • Windows: Fixed size of various graphics on high DPI (retina) displays.
    • Linux: Fixed .deb's libbz2 dependency.
    • Other tweaks and fixes (see download page).

    Default v4.0.0.17440 released - Public Beta!

    v4.0.0.17440 released - December 23, 2013

    We've just released build 17440 as the official public release. The beta website is now at http://www.scootersoftware.com/beta and it and the beta forums are open to everyone.

    Feature-wise, what's there is largely what we intend to launch, but we're still planning plenty of fixes and polish in the next few months, so keep your feedback coming.

    • Fixed text comparisons taking significantly longer than BC3.
    • Fixed toolbar buttons so clicking on them and then dragging off before releasing the mouse doesn't trigger them.
    • Fixed slow startup on OS X 10.9.
    • Fixed crash when copying between two Dropbox folders.
    • Changed beta drop dead date to February 28th, 2014.

    Now that we've released a public beta we will be making new version announcements in the top-level News & Announcements forum instead of this thread. You can subscribe to the forum instead of a specific thread to get email notifications, and RSS feeds are now available on a forum by forum basis.
