Automation Workshop v4.5 released

We heard your feedback and we’re taking action! We have added your long awaited subscription plans. Now you can split payments to smaller ones: monthly or quarterly.

The new subscriptions come with great benefits. Once subscribed, you will have free minor and major updates available without any additional fees. You can upgrade and downgrade anytime you want. Everything just works!

We also have deprecated OpenSSL libraries. From now Automation Workshop uses Windows built-in TLS/SSL solution, that guarantees that all security and feature updates are automatically included in the Windows Updates.

Security of communication channels are important for businesses, and we have introduced a setting to control the version of TLS/SSL used. You can now opt-in to use insecure and outdated SSLv3 for legacy systems, or to use industry standard TLS 1.2 to connect to modern systems in the most secure way possible.

Automation Workshop v4.0 introduces FTP & Cloud actions

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.

Triggers
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.

Actions
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.

Desktop shortcut
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.

New Website
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!

icon-hash-and-crc

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).
