In case anyone missed this in the news outlets, here is an abbreviated version of the official DFSee 16.0 release announcement:
DFSee version 16.0 has been released, with significant new functionality and fixes.
It is a MAJOR release, introducing TWO new filesystems with full support including file browsing and recovery, bringing the total number of supported filesystems to around 10!
The new filesystems are:
ISO ? The ISO9660 filesystem as used on CDROM’s and DVD media, and perhaps more importantly in .ISO imagefiles representing them.
You can now use DFSee to copy files from a CD/DVD or ISO image.
The Rock-Ridge (Unix/Linux) and Jolliet (Windows long names) extensions are supported as well, selectable where needed.
APFS ? The new Apple filesystem, used in iOS and newer macOS versions (High Sierra, Mojave) that moves up a lot of the filesystem limits from the older HFS+ and is optimized for SSD storage.
APFS supports multiple independent volumes in one partition, all sharing the same pool of storage blocks (container), and it is organized using B-trees for almost everything, making access to information really fast.
The APFS support has all the familiar DFSee analysis functions and also supports browsing and file-recovery for normal files. (XATTR and Resource-fork support will be coming soon).
There have also been some improvements in the menu-system like attached submenus to select a partition for PTEdit or LVM, to select an APFS volume from a container or to select between Standard, Jolliet or El-Torito areas within an ISO.
Of course, as usual, there are also many smaller improvements and bug fixes.
This being a major release, it will require an upgrade if you currently have a registration for an older version, so visit the DFSee product page in the ArcaOS store to purchase an upgrade at a great price.
Note: Keys sold on or after January 1, 2019 are valid for version 16.x, with no additional upgrade required.
