    DFSee version 16.2 has been released, with some new functionality and fixes.

    MINOR release, meaning you get it for FREE if you have a 16.x key already.

    It adds a few refinements to the UI, the BROWSER and the menu.

    Then it has support for creating newer versions of the DFSPUPPY USB-stick that are based on the latest 'BionicPuppy' PUPPY Linux, in turn based on Ubuntu 18.04
    (The DFSPUP64.IMZ variant of that is already available for download)

    Of course, as usual, there are also smaller improvements and bug fixes.

    There will be a version 16.3 rather soon, that adds the 32-bit variant for
    the DFSPUPPY USB stick, and cleans up the menu items and scripts for them.

    DFSee is a very powerful disk-utility with disk partitioning,
    filesystem and disk analysis, file recovery/UNDELETE and
    smart imaging or cloning of partitions or complete disks.

    It will require an upgrade if you currently have a registration for an older ver
