Released a beta version of build 126.96.36.199. There is still some coding that needs to be completed for build 188.8.131.52
and it will probably take another week to finish the coding and testing the application before the final version
of build 184.108.40.206 is released.

Windows 95 / 98 / 98 SE users please read this post. With all reported bugs/problems
out of the way I'll add a few requested features in the next build (220.127.116.11). Changes coming in the next version:
User interface enhancements (thanks to Nologic for improving the user interface).
An option to use either binary compare or CRC-32 (current) when checking for content based duplicate files as requested by Ed.
More file details (such as owner, creation date, etc) for duplicate files found (with option to hide unwanted details).
Right click option in search results to "Mark All Files in This Folder and Sub-Folders" as suggested by Rogrey in this thread.
An option to remove empty folders or "near empty folders" after deleting duplicate files as suggested by Anno & Nologic in this thread.
New folder treeview with "My Documents", "Network Neighborhood", etc visible as suggested by Nologic & DrPizza in this thread.
Option to mark/unmark files that apply to only one extension group as suggested by Anno in this thread.
Option to sort columns in search results as suggested by LangtonBen in this thread.
There are still a few remaining requests which will come in a future build (build 18.104.22.168).

Made some changes to the DFF web site and the forum. Also made sure that the e-mail addresses entered during user
registration are secure and not visible to anyone to protect everyone's privacy. Also, working on couple of
bugs that are reported
with DFF. After those bugs are fixed there will be some user interface enhancements (thanks to Nologic for designing
the new UI). More details will be posted about it next week.

After several requests I have added the requested features and fixed the reported bugs. Please
see my post on the message board regarding this. I appreciate everyone's responses except for
all the spammers (referring to the old forums). There is a new forum for Duplicate File Finder.
Only registered members can post in the new forum (this has been done to avoid spam). Anyone
can view the forum but only registered members are allowed to post or reply to existing posts.
In addition, only registered members are allowed create new threads.
Upon requests from many users of duplicate file finder the next version will have "fuzzy"
search and also to locate possible duplicate MP3 files. This version should be available for
download at the end of February. Fuzzy search will just match file names that are "close" to
each other. You will be given an option on what percentage to match etc. MP3 comparison is done
by fuzzy matching on artist and song title (read from ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags). If the ID3 tag
information is not found then the file name is used. More on this later.
Please post any suggestions / comments in the Duplicate File Finder Forum. Thank you.
