• [VOICENWS] SW: DFSee 15.1 released, full HFS+ support

    From feedback@os2voice.org@1:3634/1000 to All on Fri Jun 8 11:17:26 2018

    ++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

    From: jvwDESPAM@DESPAMdfsee.com

    DFSee version 15.1 has been released.

    MINOR release, meaning you get it for FREE if you have a 15.x key already.

    It has nearly full support for the HFS+ filesystem now, including file recovery functions and Browse (but no complete resource-fork/hard-link handling yet).

    It also supplies more OS-related information in the ABOUT dialog like more exact version and naming, 32/64 bit indicators and user/machine details.

    As usual there are also several minor problem fixes and enhancements, see below.

    Note: Version 14.8 (or later) users can update directly using the menu:

    Program Updates / Downloads ->
    Get latest STABLE update

    (Works with the OS/2, Windows, Linux and macOS versions, if WGET is there)

    DFSee is a very powerful disk-utility with disk partitioning,
    smart imaging or cloning of partitions or complete disks,
    filesystem and disk analysis, directory/file browsing with
    edit/view/copy capabilities including limited UNDELETE.
