New in this Version:
- Added: ‘Explorer’ style file manager pane to the top of the Disc Layout Editor window (can be disabled via a button on the existing toolbar).
- Added: New 7.95GB, 23.3GB and 46.6GB file splitting options so the individual image file parts can be archived on DVD+R DL, BD-R or BD-R DL media.
- Added: An option so the user can control whether or not the program will not halt logging after ‘too many’ (1000) messages.
- Added: Option in the settings to automatically make the Disc Layout Editor window ‘stay on top’ (joins the existing one for the Write Queue window).
- Added: The user can now decide if ‘Reparse Point’ (A.K.A ‘Junction’) files/folders are included when scanning for files/folder to add to the compilation.
- Added: Option to prevent the program from blocking AutoPlay when it receives the ‘QueryCancelAutoPlay’ message from the OS (probably only when it’s in the foreground).

- Added: Automatic change booktype support for the LiteOn drives using the NEC chipset (‘iHASxxx Y’ rather than ‘iHASxxx A’)
- Added: Added additional bits of information to the disc information panel on the right.
- Added: Support for a couple of other locations for the isolinux.bin file when trying to determine if it should automatically patch the boot-info-table.

- Added: Debug code for the functions that deal with the Taskbar’s progress bar type feature under Windows 7.
- Added: ‘Reset DMA’ feature to the ‘Tools’ menu. It’s just an internal version of the ‘ResetDMA.vbs’ script found on the Internet.
