Beyond Compare
Beyond Compare can be used to compare and synchronise files and folders

It is very common to store copies of the same file in more than one location - this may be for backup purposes, when working in more than one location or when designing a web site. Over time it can become difficult to manage files stored in multiple locations, particularly keeping track of which location contains the most recent version of files.

Beyond Compare is an advanced file and folder comparison tool that can be used to compare files stored in different folders, on different drives, or even online, before merging the changes you want to keep, synchronising files and generating detailed reports.

Byte by byte comparison is thorough yet fast and integrated support for FTP and Zip files means that the tool is ideal for working with the files involved in creating a web site. The program window can be used to preview files during comparison, and there is also the option of specifying external viewers to open particular type of file.

With a hugely flexible scripting language and scheduling support, there are countless uses for Beyond Compare, but it is ideal for creating backups of your important files.

The Pro version of Beyond Compare includes a number of additional features including three way merging which makes it possible to create a new merged content file after comparing files. There is also support for SFTP, text replacement and the ability to customise comparison views based on file type.

For version 4.2.3 changes, see full changelog.

Cloud Services

Fixed WebDAV showing invalid subfolders with the same name as the parent folder.

Command Line

Linux: Fixed excessive CPU usage when launching a second comparison from the command line.

FTP

Unix: Fixed crash when loading an FTP profile with the timezone set to Rome.

Misc

View tab bar no longer shows "Select Tab" and "Close Other Tabs" commands if there is only one tab.
Updated various icons.

MP3 Compare

Improved handling of AENC, GEOB, and APIC tags.

Options

Added "Minimum clip length" to clipboard manager to avoid saving passwords or other short text (defaults to 32).

Reports

Fixed display of custom display filter names (e.g. "[Differences]" instead of "Differences" when orphans not included).
Fixed UTF-8 reports not including a byte order mark, causing problems when importing them into Excel or viewing them in some web browsers.

Sessions

Session Settings dialog's "Swap sides" button now also affects "Disable editing" checkboxes.

Text Views

Unix: Fixed accented characters being entered as '?' when typed.

Crashes

macOS: Fixed startup crash on macOS 10.13 High Sierra beta.
Unix: Fixed Folder Compare crash when opening Options dialog from the Log panel.

Verdict:

An immensely powerful tool which automates the process of comparing file and folder contents

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.51

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.51

• When typing text in a chat, you can tap and hold to select the text and easily bold, strikethroughor italacize it.
