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.
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.
Febooti Hash & CRC v3.5 is available for download now. Febooti fileTweak Hash & CRC is freeware cryptographic hash value calculator that allows computing MD5, SHA-1, CRC32 and other popular hash checksums of files.
When Microsoft releases a new version of Windows, everyone expects that all his/her software continue to work. Microsoft spends plenty of resources to ensure that upgrade to newer OS does not break anything.
We at Febooti Software also are paying much attentions to compatibility. A couple days ago Microsoft released the Windows 8 Developer Preview version with a new Metro interface. It is nothing near the final version and many things will change along the road of Windows 8 (Beta 1, Beta 2, Release candidate 1, RC2, etc.).
Currently all of or software are compatible with upcoming Windows 8 64-bit and 32-bit versions. Our discontinued software product – Febooti ieZoom toolbar is compatible with Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10.
Below are some screenshots where our programs are running under Windows 8.
