It's a pleasure to announce the release of IsoBuster 3.3. This new version packs a lot of new and old but improved functionality again. For instance "Extract but filter only MPEG" to extract and convert *.VOB files to clean pure *.MPG files. If you have an older 3.x version installed, you really need an update to this version. It's free afterall. If you have an older 1.x or 2.x version installed, consider upgrading to the 3.x range.

Today we released an Alpha version of what should become IsoBuster 2.6. An Alpha version because we feel that this version may need a bit more testing, as we ported the project to a newer compiler, to finally be able to make use of IsoBuster's internal unicode workings via the GUI as well. So with this new version you can set IsoBuster to work in Chinese, for instance, on an English system, working on a DVD that has Greek file-names and so on. But read the full article to understand better and how we plan to release another beta and full version before we promote this alpha version to a beta version and finally a final version.

As you will notice, a new website was created, and released today. Not only is the "caped crusader" back, this site now also features a multi-language interface. Easily switch to Spanish or Italian or... Mind you, translations are still very much ongoing. A never ending job.

French magazine "PCUPDATE" tested IsoBuster and compared it to its competitors. After the test IsoBuster was elected "Best CD and DVD Data recovery software" and it got the editor's choice award.

The Spanish translation is now final, both dll and help file have been finalized. The Italian dll has been updated as well.

IsoBuster, the caped crusader and hopefully soon mascot of the software IsoBuster, is well known for its CD and DVD Data recovery capabilities, but he is rarely seen. We're proud to be able to show you a secretly taken snapshot while he was thinking about a new strategy.

For some time now all major players in the optical industry have been working on the successor of DVD. Indeed, a new disc type with more capacity, about 25 GB per layer as opposed to the 4.5 GB per layer for DVDs. Similarly as with DVD there are again two camps and unfortunately two competing disc formats.

The Norwegian dll has been updated to the latest version, downloadable from the language dll update page. The Italian help file has been updated as well and more sections have been translated.

After the last big translation action a couple of languages stayed unfinished. To renew interest other than after a new version release we would like to ask people if they are willing to complete a couple of the translations.

A new section has been added to the website. Tips and Tricks. In this section certain aspects of IsoBuster will be explained in more detail from time to time in "How To" style.

As of today it is possible to subscribe to an RSS feed instead of the Email newsletter. The Newsletter will still be sent, so you're welcome to subscribe to that as well, but because of the growing risk of emails getting lost in cyberspace, due to spam filters etc., it may be interesting to monitor the RSS feed as well.
