Release Notes

An updated version of jv16 PowerTools has been released. The latest version number is 5.0.0.845.

Change Log Since Build 798

Feature Improvements:

  1. Major speed improvements to Software Uninstaller and Software Updater scans.

  2. Minor improvements to the accuracy of Software Uninstaller.

  3. Minor performance improvements to Find All and the Finder tool.

Bug Fixes

  1. Maximizing or unmaximizing the main window by double clicking the top window bar does not work properly.
  2. If you maximize the main window, then minimize it, clicking the jv16 PowerTools in Windows task bar does not restore its window and the program can remain invisible.
  3. The Please restart jv16 PowerTools message box can be shown with the wrong message box icon.
  4. Software Uninstaller and Software Updater can show wrong version number for some software, for example Speccy.
  5. Uninstalling many software at the same time can cause the progress screen to display incorrect paths. For example, if you are uninstalling Winzip and Winrar, during the uninstallation of Winrar, the progress screen could say it is processing C:\Program Files\Winzip\. This is a purely cosmetic problem relating to the user interface. No incorrect data is removed, or data of other software.
  6. Uninstalling certain software can cause the system to reboot incorrectly. This is caused by Software Uninstaller not detecting a certain type of reboot now or later selector in the app’s uninstaller.
  7. The scan progress screen of Find All and Finder tool can display incorrectly large number of results found. This is purely a cosmetic issue, the user interface simply counted the data wrong and that is why the number of items found shown on screen does not always match the final number of found items.

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.

How to update:

If you are using any recent jv16 PowerTools (5.0.0.x) – simply download and install the new version over the old version. No uninstallation is required or recommended.

If you are using an older version, please uninstall it before installing the new version, or install the new version to another directory.

Notice about build 832:

The originally released build 832 contained a bug which, under some circumstances could damage Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird programs. We received two bug reports of this issue, and decided to issue this build 845 as a quick fix to this issue. If the problem occurred in your system, simply reinstalling the damaged program, such as Firefox, fixes the issue and there is no data loss or other damage to the system. That being said, this should have never had happened and we apologize! We will improve our quality control systems to ensure this can never happen again!
