FileCarver 1.5.0

Fizzysoft has released version 1.5.0 of FileCarver, a powerful developer tool for editing binary files. This program allows the user to specify the format of an arbitrary binary file, and from this it will generate a fully-functional GUI to edit files in the format. Using this program for creating editors for game-specific binary files is a huge productivity boost, as creating a fully-fledged file editor is as easy as making a short XML definition of a file format.

What's new:

Smaller memory footprint and better performance
Numerous user interface refinements
New hex editor control sporting many improvements
Added an "Open Recent" menu listing recent documents
Added display="text-area-monospaced" for string fields
Ability to include XML from external files

Support for a global script on the format definition
Support for specifying custom input and output filters
UTF-16 encoding removed in favor of UTF-16LE or UTF-16BE
Various improvements to the javascript support
Improved platform-specific integration
Miscellaneous bug fixes and other improvements
