Explorer++ version now available

Post by David Erceg »

I'm pleased to announce today that version of Explorer++ is now available. New additions in this version (as compared to the RC) include several minor new features (such as the ability to have new items inserted in their sorted positions, and the ability to browse to the default folder using the keyboard shortcut Alt+Home), as well as a relatively large set of bug fixes and tweaks, most centered around copy and paste/drag and drop. My aim both with this release and the next few releases is to consolidate all current features and ensure everything works correctly.

Over the last few weeks, I've also been working on creating an installer for Explorer++ (using the open source tool WiX), and I've continued working on the help file. I had wanted both of these done in time for this release, but they still need some more work, and will appear in the not too distant future.

Finally, thanks to everyone who gave me feedback on 1.0 RC!
