Something whacky happened with the upload, it went haywire. So if anyone downloaded BRU in the last 12 hours I suggest you re-download it.

Version 2.6.0.0 is released
Posted by Jim Willsher on Saturday, 28th July 2007 at 7:03PM

Revision History
!=Bug, +=new feature / enhancement / change


+ EXIF tag support now extended to include TIFF, .CR2, .NEF files

Background

Bulk Rename Utility is easy to use and has a small memory “footprint” so can be left running all the time without consuming all your memory. It started life as a Visual Basic application, but as its popularity has grown it has been completely rewritten in C++ (MFC) to be robust and lightweight - and very, very fast! It can easily handle folders/discs containing well over 100,000 entries, and it can rename 1,000s of entries in seconds.

The software gets downloaded frequently and has a large base of regular users. Most of the features have originated from other users' suggestions. As such, it is continually being enhanced and improved.

As well as being "Recommended" by a number of websites, it has also appeared on 7 magazine cover-discs, from Brazil to Sweden.

However, whilst the software is stable, it will never be "finished". If you have a suggestion for a new feature, or think something can be done better, then get in touch and it could appear in the future release
