WinHex 9.8 will be another major update.

* It will feature full FAT12 support. When opening a logical drive with the disk editor, you will be able to use the menu commands "List File Clusters", "List Directory Clusters", and "Scan Cluster Chains Again". You can also see for each sector which file it is allocated to.

* Cluster listings will be shown in correct logical order even on FAT drives, not sorted by cluster number any more.

* Floppy drives will be present in the Disk Editor as logical drives under Windows 2000, too.

* The big endian setting will affect the UNIX/C Date & Time format ("UNIXDateTime" or "time_t" in templates). At big endian, this format is compatible with the 64-bit Java date format. Since UNIX/C Date & Time consists of only 4 bytes, the 4 most significant bytes of a Java date must be ignored (which should be zero anyway).

* Double-spaced printing provides for more room for hand-written comments on the paper in between the lines. This is a new option in the Print dialog.

* The File Analysis window can be printed from the system menu of that window.

* Pressing Alt+G in templates closes the template and moves the cursor in the edit window to the template's last position.

* More to come

A preliminary version can be downloaded already from http://www.winhex.com/winhex98.zip.

* When editing logical drives or physical disks, there is now a shortcut button for quick access to important disk positions: partition start sector, record, boot sector, FAT, root directory, unused surplus sectors, and more.

* The Master Boot Record template was improved. This became possible because of a new template data type that allows to compose an integer from arbitrary bits within a 32-bit range.

Beta version available from http://www.winhex.com/winhex98.zip.
