    ++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

    From: jvwDESPAM@DESPAMdfsee.com

    DFSee version 14.8 has been released.

    MINOR release, meaning you get it for FREE if you have a 14.x key already. However, there are some nice new features and some bug fixes in there!

    - HEX editor update for a fixed 16x32 size (activate/toggle with Alt-T/Ctrl-F2)

    - More control over color usage, with new 'set palet' command / menu-items

    - More color tuning and key-definitions for various Linux terminal programs

    The Linux bootable USB stick DFSee-PUPPY has been updated to 14.8 too
    See the screenshots and additional info at:


    Note: existing users of the PUPPY stick can update directly using the menu:

    Program Updates / Downloads ->
    Get latest STABLE update

    (May work with the regular OS/2, Linux and macOS versions too, if WGET is there)

    DFSee is a very powerful disk-utility with disk partitioning,
    smart imaging or cloning of partitions or complete disks,
    filesystem and disk analysis, directory/file browsing with
    edit/view/copy capabilities including limited UNDELETE.
