  • Completely new UI!
  • Added ability to show only titles with updated files available.
  • Fixed several bugs related to file hash matching.
  • Now files for a given title are put into that title’s own subdirectory, to prevent file collisions (e.g. when multiple titles from a same publisher include a file with the same name).
  • Reminder: after initial download, you can move your files around anywhere within the app’s download folder, and the app will keep track of where you’ve moved them.
