XnView 1.82 Beta 1

Post by xnview »


the first Beta version of XnView 1.82 is available. First we had Alpha, now Beta version. And Release Candidates (RC) will follow later. In Wikipedia you'll find a good description of the various development stages. This Beta version is likely to be buggy and a bit unstable.

Important Notes:
+ Normal users should use the current Final version of XnView, which is version 1.80.3. Please see topic XnView 1.80.3 for details.
+ Download portals and websites must link to final versions of XnView only, and in no case link to this Beta version.

Download & Feedback
XnView 1.82 Beta 1 is available here.

At this stage I'd like get feedback for bugs (large and minor), or other comments regarding the added features. Thanks to report bugs, GPFs, or other problems found in the Beta.
