With various (in theory) safeguards in place, and concious that sometimes there is quite a delay between official releases, we've decided to have the latest CI build for supported products automatically uploaded to cyotek.com each day, allowing adventurous end users to get access to fixes sooner than normal releases.
Products Blog Articles and information on Cyotek's products
The Cyotek Blog has moved - please find it at https://blog.cyotek.com.
Although these pages remain accessible, some content may not display correctly in future as the new blog evolves.
Every so often, we'll receive a Google alert which has a link to HerdProtect or TotalVirus with a page merrily listing one of Cyotek's executable files are being a virus. I'll duly check these pages only to discover that while it might be one of our files (or a file with the same version information), it has been modified, renamed and then dumped in one of the Windows system folders attempting to masquerade as another component.
This sort of thing isn't really great advertising for Cyotek, so I thought I would write this post reminding users to take caution when downloading files and to use common sense, along with outlining how you can check if the files are valid.
A new beta version of WebCopy has been released, containing a range of both new features and bug fixes. Notable new features include support for the srcset attribute, the ability to easily include custom attributes in HTML scans and support for the 300 status code.
It's now been more than a month since my slightly glum post about the state of WebCopy (and other product) updates, so I thought I'd post a brief update.
A brief insight into why updates to our products are taking longer than usual, and some of the steps we are taking to try and resolve this.
This article describes end of support for WebCopy on Windows XP, notice on changing .NET Framework versions to something newer, and how we aim to provide more reliable and timely updates in future.
One of the biggest sources of support requests for WebCopy are to do with posting forms, and WebCopy's ongoing inability to handle dynamic values. Thankfully, with WebCopy 18.104.22.168 this issue has finally been resolved as we have introduced a variety of improvements with forms, including value merging and a new tool to capture form data.
If you use Cyotek's Color Palette Editor to create palettes that are displayed on community sites such as forums, then it can be handy to display a preview of the palette.
A new feature in the Palette Editor can now produce these images for you as this post briefly describes.
At some point in the last few days, COMODO have revoked the certificate we use, for reasons I'm still trying to ascertain from their support department. The net result of this is every Cyotek product released in the past 10 months is now unusable, as when you try and start any executable, it will immediately crash due to the revoked certificate.
