Changes and new features
- Experimental: Added a new option to simplify the sitemap treeview. When this option is set, folder containers are no longer displayed if the folder only has a single page
- Experimental: Modifying a rule now reapplies rules to the sitemap, allowing easier sitemap manipulation without having to rescan the site. Note this feature only works on the current contents of the link map, if the linkmap is incomplete due to existing rules a rescan will be required regardless.
- Sorting of the sitemap now uses natural sorting, so names appear in a logical order, e.g.
- The Rule and Forms lists now default to sorted

- When building a sitemap, folders are no longer generated for URI's that match except for differing query strings
- New API to allow plugin authors to add additional functionality to application windows when they are created

http://demo.cyotek.com/staticwebsite/blog/page1.html, the text used by the rule engine will be
- The Differences tab now lists all URI's which are new to the last scan, in addition to existing checks of modification dates. Due to the introduction of this setting, all URI's will be marked as new for existing projects, until that project is rescanned and saved.

- Double clicking (or pressing enter) on a file node in the sitemap tree view now displays the appropriate properties dialog
- The Print and Print Preview options are now correctly enabled in the Image Viewer.
- Simplified the User Agent editor

- Fixed a problem where commands linked to URI's that contained spaces in their respective query strings caused the command to fail with an Invalid URI message.
- Fixed rare a problem where it was possible Sitemap Creator would place the same URI twice in the processing queue, and immediately cancel the copy as soon as the second occurrence was hit.
- Fixed a problem where Sitemap Creator did not check the internal document version to ensure it was supported
- Fixed an issue where toolbars were initialized before the window was resized to whatever the user had defined, meaning some toolbars were unnecessarily placed on new rows

- The Headers tab in the Link Properties dialog now displays request headers
- Added new options for setting the Accept and Accept-Language request headers.
- Removed status code 406 (not acceptable) from the list of supported codes for automated error reporting during a crawl
- Experimental: Added the basis of a "quick scan" feature. This scans the top level of the website for unique absolute URI's (removing bookmarks and query strings) and is useful for getting a quick overview of the top level structure of the website, making it easier to detect and exclude pages that have no benefit to copy (such as new thread / reply thread pages in a forum). As with other experimental features, this will be expanded over future updates.
- By default, new projects will now remap local file extensions based on their file type if no existing extension is present
- Status bar now shows pending crawl requests.

- Fixed a problem where some users experienced a startup crash when initializing fonts
- Fixed a build problem that meant some exception reports were missing information
- Fixed a problem where buffers were incorrectly being processed when downloading which could lead to a potential crash or corrupt file if the response header didn't include a content length, and otherwise just did extra repeated work if a length was available
- Fixed a crash that could occur when crawling websites that had many nested branches of links
- Temporary files generated during the analysis of a website are now deleted as soon as they are no longer required, rather than only once the crawl has completed
- The "is missing" check was ignoring HTTP status codes and only going from the scan index

- Filter options in the Website Links dialog are now correctly available no match which tag is active
- Fixed a massive performance issue when populating lists under certain conditions
Changes and new features
- A new Test URI feature is available. This allows you to test a given URL, choose verbs, post information, or experiment with different user agents. Any returned output is viewable, allowing you to easily check if user agents have an impact on returned content, and methods such as HEAD are supported for crawling.
- Fixed a crash when trying to open or copy the URI of an invalid tree view node
- When entering a URL without a schema, a default schema of http:// will be applied
- Old version notices are no longer displayed after opening a project in the old XML format and then creating a new project
Changes and new features
- Sitemap Creator projects are now saved as binary files, and it is no longer possible to save in the old XML format (however you can continue to open them). As a consequence of this change, project files are now smaller and are quicker to load and save. When saving a XML based project, a one time backup will be created of the original XML before the new binary file is written. Note that versions of Sitemap Creator prior to 188.8.131.52 cannot open these binary files.

- Default documents editor now displays the predefined default documents used if the field is left blank
- UI access to "hide" URI's in the link map has been disabled. This functionality will be removed in a future update
- The last downloaded attribute of URI's are no longer updated if the download was the result of an analyse operation rather than a full copy
- Crawl exceptions can now be reported to help improve Sitemap Creator
- Replaced 3rd party PDF library, this should allow for better compatibility with different types of PDF documents

- Content types prefixed with x- automatically fall back to the non-prefixed version where the prefixed version cannot be found
- If the crawl of a given page fails, for example with a 500 error, Sitemap Creator now attempts to get any response data which can then be viewed from the new Content tab of the Link Properties dialog. This response data is not saved with the project and is only available for the duration of the session from which it was populated.
- The Test URL dialog has been updated to support the same "raw/WYSIWYG" content preview as the Link Properties dialog.
