Just for your info, see release history of Altap v3:

02/27/2015 - Altap Salamander 3.06
12/29/2014 - Altap Salamander 3.05
10/31/2014 - Altap Salamander 3.04
08/29/2014 - Altap Salamander 3.03
05/30/2014 - Altap Salamander 3.02
04/29/2014 - Altap Salamander 3.01
04/01/2014 - Altap Salamander 3.0
11/29/2013 - Altap Salamander 3.0 beta 4
08/29/2013 - Altap Salamander 3.0 beta 3
03/29/2013 - Altap Salamander 3.0 beta 2
11/30/2012 - Altap Salamander 3.0 beta 1

From release 3.06 situation looks like that the Altap development completely stopped. This forum is full of promising statements like:
- we are working on ...
- new release will there during few days ...
- in next release will be these new capabilities ...
- we are working hardly, but do not ask for exact date of next release ...
- etc
- etc

On the other hand you can see here a lot of requests to fix many bugs and a lot of requests to add some new functionalities (rights elevation, unicode support, etc, etc.). The developers always responds in the same way: "We are working hardly on that, next release is coming."

BUT, during last 10 months was not released any new version!!! This is commercial project, ALTAP users pay for this application. So, do not ask me to stop disturbing developers, please!!!

I understand your frustration, it is frustrating for us too. We wanted to release AS 3.07 long ago, but we decided to postpone it because it will be better release with patches we are doing. Several interesting ideas and problems were discussed in this forum recently, it all takes some time.

I'm waiting too.
I hope it will be better product than for example Win10 so I think it's a better option to wait longer than to obtain beta version instead of real release.
I use the Product since 2000 or sth - I bought 4 licenses - 2 for me and 2 for my bosses.
Regards!

We are still working on 3.07 release - fixing PictView x64 scanning problem (implementing support for WIA drivers).

After a month of additional waiting I have only one simple question: Hey, ALTAP guys, are you doing anything useful for us, your clients ??!! I am afraid, you do not. Just tell us frankly, that you have no time to work on new ALTAP developments, because your statements here are unreliable and awkward.

Is unicode support totally not getting in AS 3.07 release?

FYI, `Find in files` direly needs UCS-2/UTF-8 support on searched files. The strange thing is that `File comparator` works fine with unicode even in AS 3.06.

Frankly, I don't care about unicode filenames in direcotry panes or files in deep directory heirarchy (above MAX_PATH symbols) so unicode in directory panes is "nice to have" on my "dire, direr, direst" scale.

cheers,

File Comparator plugin does support UTF-8, UTF-16, and UTF-32.

You seem to be in hurry in life. Slow down. The developers want to fix as many bugs as possible for probably the last version compatible for win2000 and winXP so take it easy and chill out.
