Release Notes

An updated version of jv16 PowerTools has been released. The latest version number is 5.0.0.798.

Change Log Since Build 786

Feature Improvements:

  1. New tool: Finder allows you to search for file system and registry data with an advanced set of options.
  2. New tool: Duplicate Finder allows you to search for duplicate files with many settings.
  3. Major accuracy improvements to the Software Updater.
  4. Minor improvements to the accuracy of the Software Uninstaller.
  5. The installation of jv16 PowerTools now automatically clears the cache and debug data of possibly existing old jv16 PowerTools directories.
  6. If there is not enough horizontal space to draw the tool’s action buttons and the filter panel, the close button will now be shrunk to a small X button. Previously, the Filter panel would be hidden, and this was confusing and was reported as a bug.
  7. Added a placeholder text for the result list filtering feature to make it easier to see you can filter the result list by entering search words to the search area.
  8. The tip message boxes now show a different icon compared to the normal message boxes.
  9. The main window UI can now better handle long tool names in non English versions of the program.

Bug Fixes

  1. Support page can have too much empty space between the texts.
  2. Maximizing the program window on a system with multiple displays may not work correctly, the window size can be set incorrectly too large or too small.
  3. The program’s main window can show with a default size and position in a way it is behind the Windows task bar. This is rare and would only happen with specific screen size and scree resolution settings.
  4. Pressing Ctrl + A while a text box is active does not select all the text within that text box.
  5. If file deletion fails in Find All, there can be a flood of error messages about each failure. The number of these error messages is now limited.
  6. The tip message about being able to use filtering with the results is shown before the actual results are on screen.
  7. It’s not possible to translate the default text of the home screen’s Find All text input box.
  8. The splash screen texts can overlap when using non English version of the program.
  9. Using the Filter panel in Software Updater can cause the result list to become empty and not update again unless the tool is restarted.

Known Issues:

  1. Support for 4K displays is not yet perfect, however, it is already quite usable.
  2. System Cleaner’s browser cleaning module does not support the new Chromium based Microsoft Edge.
  3. System Cleaner and Software Uninstaller Right-Click menus do not yet have the Add To Ignore List feature.
  4. Duplicate Finder will list at most 2000 duplicate files.
