Standard Scan Pack - What’s New

8.0.0.31 (2014-05-22)

  • Some files were incorrectly reported as "Cancelled by User" when in fact they were aborted because they froze.
  • New "Failed" tab to give you a quick look at failed files.
  • Improved the detection and handling of files that get hung during OCR.
  • PDF page extraction and OCR now run in separate, concurrent processes, speeding up PDF > searchable PDF conversions by up to 20%.

8.0.0.30 (2014-03-27)

  • Improved the way we monitor the conversion threads so they all get cleaned up properly.
  • Jobs with files in their queue now get highlighted tabs so they’ll stand out.

7.1.0.72 (2012-09-05)

  • Redesigned interface: the Queue tab has been integrated into the Jobs tab. You can now see the queue on a job-per-job basis and also see the queue and history side-by-side.
  • New queue handling: the queue is stored in text files instead of the database to eliminate database bloat.

7.1.0.63 (2012-03-29)

  • Small bug fixes.

7.1.0.60 (2012-03-07)

  • Fixed an issue where the memory wasn’t flushed when extracting images from PDFs. Should improve performance on large documents.
  • We now copy all files to the temp folder and do the conversions from there. This should address some rare cases where network files failed to convert successfully.

7.1.0.59 (2012-02-17)

  • Refined the interface under the "Jobs" tab to make creating and running jobs more intuitive.
  • Auto-rotate is now available for all OCR engines.
  • Fixed an issue where we sometimes got false positives when we checked if a file was in use.

7.1.0.54 (2012-01-09)

  • Fixed an issue where we sometimes got duplicate output files.
  • Fixed an issue where we sometimes got false positive failures.
  • Fixed an error when deleting a job.

7.1.0.51 (2011-12-07)

  • File searches now run in their own process for better stability and performance.
  • Updated help.

7.1.0.42 (2011-10-17)

  • Fixed an issue that could cause multi-threaded conversions to hang.

7.1.0.42 (2011-10-07)

  • FileConvert can now handle files with no extension. It will intelligently figure out what kind of file it is.
  • Fixed a problem that was keeping FileConvertAgent from launching.
  • We won’t overwrite a file unless we are sure the conversion worked (but we always back up a file regardless).

7.0.0.18 (2011-03-15)

  • Fixed an issue introduced in the last build that would keep the queue from loading.

7.0.0.17 (2011-03-10)

  • We force a close on Word, Excel and PowerPoint before conversions in case they didn’t shut down properly.
  • Fixed an issue that was, on rare occasion, causing Office files to fail.
  • For jobs that are set to split up files every N pages, on rare occasion the source file didn’t get removed from the output folder after the split. If we detect that the delete failed, we’ll now retry a few times, in case there was a lock.
  • "Input File Limit Per Run" has been replaced by a "Queue Limit for Scheduled Jobs." This sets the maximum number of files that can be in the queue at a time. When a scheduled job runs, it will stop scanning for files once the queue limit is reached. The queue limit does not apply to manual jobs.
  • New setting: "Remove Log Items" purges old log information after N days to keep the log file from growing too big.
  • The job option "Output Date Stamp" wasn’t sticking.

7.0.0.16 (2011-03-04)

  • Modified the way we’re generating PDF/A files.

7.0.0.15 (2011-02-24)

  • Office files are now restricted to a single thread (it as always true that Office files would only work in a single thread; now it’s enforced).
  • Fine-tuned the conversion threads to eliminate a 5-minute pause that would sporadically happen.

7.0.0.14 (2011-02-17)

  • New OCR option: Remove Blank Pages. Drops blank pages from the file.
  • Improved stub-file detection.

7.0.0.9 (2010-01-19)

  • Original file date/time wasn’t being preserved with in-place conversions.

7.0.0.8 (2010-01-18)

  • Source files can now be deleted in in-place conversion jobs (when applicable).
  • Optimized database lookups during a conversion.
  • Fixed an issue where multiple destinations in separators could cause an error.
  • Original file date/time wasn’t being preserved with in-place conversions.

7.0.0.5 (2010-12-23)

  • Initial release of FileConvert 7.
  • Completely updated UI.
  • New ribbon-style toolbar provides easier access to features.
  • PDF/A-1b support for creating archival-quality PDFs.

6.6.0.2468 (2010-07-12)

  • New internal PDF engine for converting documents to PDF.

6.5.0.2409 (2010-06-17)

  • Fixed a flicker issue with the status bars when converting multiple threads.
  • We weren’t checking the active file when filtering for files to add to the queue, with the result that the current file could get added to the queue again.
  • We were only adding files to the queue if they had a file size > gt; 0, which could keep files from being added if the user didn’t have sufficient rights to the file. Now they’re added if they exist.

6.5.0.2106 (2010-03-17)

  • Can now run as a service. See Settings > General > Run as a Service. Look in the documentation for limitations when running it as a service.
