  • [+] Cloud Sync: New feature to synchronize a bookmark database via the Cloud or a local/network drive. For example if you use WebSite-Watcher on your PC and on your notebook, you can easily synchronize your bookmark database via the Cloud. All data stored in the Cloud is encrypted with AES-256.

  • [+] Bookmark properties + Test server (drop down menu on the right side of the URL field): Ping and Trace Route commands to test the availability of a server
  • [+] LinkedIn pages automatically use the check technology "Internet Explorer/Browser"

  • Plugins: The built-in function "Bookmark_SetProperty" can write the additional 3 info fields of a bookmark
  • Database Repair Tool (dbtool.exe) that can be used to repair a database. Can be used if it's no longer possible to start WebSite-Watcher or to open a database due to database corruptions and crashes.
  • Scrolling with the mouse wheel works when the cursor is over the control (folder tree, bookmark list, web browser), it's no longer required to click the control before
  • Image configuration: WebSite-Watcher can now optionally show embedded flash videos if absolute image addresses or image downloading is enabled (in previous versions, embedded flash videos were always displayed but this could slow down opening certain bookmarks).
  • Newsgroups: Get parent postings (which can be much faster than the function "Reconstruct Thread" when you're only interested in (very) old parent postings)
  • Script IDE: Code completion via Ctrl+Space added
  • Script IDE has now a sensitive help. When the cursor is placed on a command, then F1 jumps directly to the related help topic of that command.
  • Follow-Links runs more smoothly and no longer blocks the main application
  • New Tweak: "CreateHighlightedChangesInBackground=1": By default, WebSite-Watcher calculates and generates the file with highlighted changes as soon as you open a bookmark. If this option is enabled, then WebSite-Watcher creates the files with highlighted changes immediately while bookmarks are checked. This will speed up opening changed bookmarks, but the check run will consume more memory and resources. It's not recommended to use this tweak if you often re-check changed/unread bookmarks without opening them after each check.
  • New Tweak "SavePageWhenNoKeywordsFound=1": By default, WebSite-Watcher doesn't save a page to your hard disk when keywords are entered in Update-on-keywords but no keyword is found within new/changed content. With that tweak, a page is also saved to your hard disk when none of the entered keywords is found.
  • New Tweak "UseStaticTrayIconHint=1": Shows the static text "WebSite-Watcher" as trayicon tooltip instead of dynamically generated information about check/update status.
  • Report/Export: New field {wsw_url_date_created}
  • The old-looking floating InfoWin has been re-designed and shows more information now. It has also been renamed to "Update-Ticker".
  • Internet Explorer browser integration improved (certain pages could not be added via the context menu due to an IE problem)
  • Checking Excel files: Performance highly improved
  • Pdf/Word/Excel files could not be checked via Check-Macros containing logouts
  • Tons of smaller improvements and optimizations
