File Buddy 11 Mailing List

I am testing out a mailing list service to provide email updates for interested users. Please sign up if you’d like to know immediately when a new alpha release is available. This is not a marketing list and I will never be sending any emails but updates and announcements related to File Buddy 11 alpha.


If the mailing list goes well for this update, I may add future mailing lists around topics like “Tips and Tricks”.

If you don’t want to sign up for email alerts, you can also follow @SkytagSoftare on Twitter.

I’ve meant to post an update multiple times since the last one, but it was never an option when I thought of it and when it was an option, I didn’t think of it. [Read More]

Fixes for Crash Reports

Download Quick Update This is a small update to address the crash reports. I’ve been focusing on new features and I’ve forgotten to check on the crash reports.

Rename Action in List Windows

Download What’s new in alpha-7 The big feature of alpha-7 is the Rename action. It is available on both Info and List windows and supports replacement of strings and characters, deleting of strings and characters, and regular expressions. There is a disabled checkbox for Check names because that part hasn’t been implemented. A small update on the Find window adds support for Add to front list. What’s next I’m continuing to work on renaming stuff, since there is still sequential and date-based renaming options. [Read More]
