Partial Change log:

2009/11/02 – FileScout release of 1.4.1.0

  • What’s fixed?
    • The new Simple TextViewer/Editor Option: Select how files will be saved. Either in ‘UNIX Format (CR)’ (default) or in’Windows Format (CRLF)’ is now visible in the Simple TextViewer/Editor Option

2009/10/31 – FileScout release of 1.4.0.0

Even if the changelog for v1.4.0.0 does not list plenty of new features – “under the hood” there have been a lot of changes in order to make FileScout even more stable and memory efficient.

  • What’s new?
    • New Simple TextViewer/Editor Option: Select how files will be saved. Either in ‘UNIX Format (CR)’ (default) or in’Windows Format (CRLF)’. By default BlackBerry is storing files in the UNIX Format – which makes editing afterwards e.g. with Windows Notepad a bit difficult.
    • Additional small tweaks for OS5.x Users
    • Storm 2 (9520/9550) will be treated as the Storm 9500/9530 devices (but still no touch screen support yet)
    • Added a MenuItem for the “Go to Directory” [SHIFT]+[G] function
    • Various performance and memory issue improvements
  • What’s fixed?
    • Sometimes FileScout was instantly started again after it was closed by the user (e.g. when during the FileScout session some media files had been opened) – this issue should be solved with this build.
