Automation Workshop 4th version is another major milestone that brings a completely redesigned user interface along with new cloud actions and triggers. As Windows 7 EOL is approaching rapidly, we have aligned the user experience to the new UI paradigm that matches Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016/2019 user experience. While the new interface looks very modern and gorgeous, it does not add significant overhead to the very small memory footprint Automation Workshop has. We have even improved some code, so the newest version require event less memory while running complex tasks.
We have crafted four new triggers that can monitor Amazon S3 file service or any FTP server, be it Linux or Windows based, with the latest security standards right out the box.
With our new FTP & Cloud action you can manipulate remote files in easy and secure manner. These actions are solid addition to Automation Workshop’s already existing comprehensive set of file and folder manipulation actions.
We have heard your feedback! It is now possible to create a shortcut to the task on your desktop. Launch a task with a simple click on your desktop, without opening Automation Workshop every time you need to run a task.
As the Windows versions rapidly move on, we have also dropped support for .NET 2.0 and .NET 3.0 frameworks. Official support for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 R2 are also ended.
As you may already noticed, the febooti.com website has also been fully redesigned, it has more pleasant typeface and it is fully compatible with the latest mobile browsing standards.
Stay with us, the year of 2020 will bring many more new features!
We have just released Automation Workshop v3.0.0 which introduces 18 new actions in three categories – addition to the File / Folder category, as well as brand new – Loops and Text categories. Long requested actions for text string manipulations and loops are finally there. Now it is possible to use custom named variables and tokens from Split text action. This release also focuses on many improvements and a few bug-fixes. Read detailed information in Release notes for v3.0.0.
Here is a screenshot from Split text action, that is very handy when extracting data from CSV (comma-separated values) files, or when need to get values embedded into filenames.

We have just released two compatibility releases — one for Hex Editor and one for Hash / check-sum calculator. Now both are compatible with Microsoft newest operating system — Windows 10. And we have fixed one nasty bug in Hex Editor 64-bit version. It seems that Microsoft has begun using a new memory randomization algorithm, and Hex Editor crashed a lot on Windows 10 64-bit due to incorrect casting bug (truncated pointer).
COM Surrogate has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.
This version adds two new Wait actions. Wait for file and Wait for time. See the screenshots below. Also, improvements for the PowerShell scripts – it is not necessary to change Execution Policy to run PowerShell scripts from the Automation Workshop, Execute Script action.
Automation Workshop v2.2.0 features three new Folder actions – Duplicate, Move and Clear folder. Also, some improvements and new features here and there. View gallery below with screenshots of new actions.
Today (Aug 13, 2014) we are proud to announce the release of free edition of our flagship software product – Automation Workshop. We believe that our step will attract much more attention, and to not confuse commercial and freeware communities, we have created dedicated website for it. AutomationWorkshop.org is a new official home for Automation Workshop Free Edition.
When you visit AutomationWorkshop.org, the first thing you notice is the counter, besides that it is very beautiful site with very pleasant typography. The counter does not show zero as you have expected for the software that has just been released. It shows a little more than 300,000 downloads.
The count comes from all Automation Workshop downloads, not just these of Freeware kind. We celebrated 100,000 downloads a little more than two years ago. Also, the version number is not v1.0, but the same as for commercial version – v2.1.0. File is signed with cryptographic certificate and some popular cryptographic hash check-sums are provided. The official download page is here.
Automation Workshop update to version 2.1.0 adds new Split file path Action. Improved Task Finder and Variable Wizard now provide better user experience. View release notes for more information. Download latest version from our website.
