RogueKiller V9 beta


Hello :)

I'm very pleased to announce that version 9 of RogueKiller is finally in public beta stage! Yay!  8)
It took about 2 months+ to redo everything from scratch. From your point of view, it will not change a lot because we tried to redo the same software with (under the hood) a very strong and reliable architecture, easier to maintain and more powerful against malware.

So the UI is pretty much the same, we just did a few cosmetic changes to differentiate from the version 8.
Here's the logbook of the devs, which explains what exactly has changed:

Please, download it, test it, but keep in mind it's still in beta. Though most of the bugs were fixed during the alpha stage, some may remain.
We are waiting for your feedback, tell us what's good, what's wrong, and provide as much information as possible (if you encounter a crash, please provide a full dump).

Please provide feedback on that thread, or if you won't register to the forum, use the contact form.

Known issues (to be completed):

* Command line not implemented yet
