Among the new features:

* There is now a dedicated menu command for securely deleting unused clusters on a logical drive: Tools | Disk Tools | Initialize Free Space

* Editing and initializing free space will also work with more than 4 GB free on FAT32 drives.

* When irreversibly deleting (=wiping) files or initializing free space, you can now choose between overwriting with zero bytes, with any hex value pattern or with random data.

* You can also have WinHex write the same new bytes more than once, for maximum security.

* You can now select one or more lines as the current block by moving and clicking the mouse between the offset colum and the left vertical line. The mouse cursor will change its direction in this area, as known from common text editor and word processing software.

A beta version is available from http://www.winhex.com/winhex984.zip.

A new beta version is available from http://www.winhex.com/winhex986.zip .

Additional enhancements include:

* WinHex now supports a dedicated Java date & time type in the Data Interpreter and in templates ("JavaDateTime"). It is always treated as big endian data. You can have WinHex translate it from GMT to any time zone.

* The file recovery function has a new option that makes WinHex ignore read errors. You will not have to dismiss any messages boxes. Useful for recovering from physically damaged disks.

* If a read error occurs when reading from a disk in any situation, WinHex will now tell the exact sector number in the error message.

* You can now select one or more lines as the current block by moving and clicking the mouse between the offset column and the left vertical line. The mouse cursor will change its direction in this area, as known from common text editors and word processing software.
