    DFSee version 15.6 has been released.

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

    It has more robust download scripts for updating the DFSee program and
    for getting the DFSPUPPY/DFSPUP64 imagefiles, that also allow selecting
    an alternative download directory/drive.

    The ABOUT info now also recognizes OS/2 systems with the OS/4 kernel,
    and the IMAGE dialog automatiscally selects between single and multi
    file images for Linux (based on the filesystem and mount-points).

    For details, 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, HEX/binary disk or file editing, filesystem and disk analysis, directory/file browsing with edit/view/copy capabilities and much more ...
