    Here is a summary of the updates.
    • Automatic Upgrade - igLoader will check current version and notify user if upgrade is available and will redirect the user to upgrade page. You are no longer required to build a version checking script into your webpage. All updates are now centralised, all plugin install files originate from the igloader.com domain and are digitally signed.
    • Window > Fullscreen > Window compatiblilty (**)
    • igLoader <-> application communication
    • (**)Re-Embed Window : Required when switching from FullScreen back to Windowed Mode.
    • Request File : Instruct igLoader to download a file from Network/internet. Async download, igLoader will notify application when download is complete and location of cached file. (http, ftp, mailto)
    • Get URL : Instruct igLoader to open a URL, user specified browser window target. (http, ftp, mailto)
    • Post URL : Instruct igLoader to post to a URL, utilising the POST method. It is possible to post contents of a buffer or a complete file. (http, ftp, mailto)
    KNOWN ISSUES : Opera does not release plugins when you navigate away from the browser page, the thread remains open and is not terminated. This appears to be an issue with the Opera browser and not igLoader. We have raised this issue with Opera and are awaiting a response.

    **IMPORTANT UPDATE**

    Software Maintenance and Subscription (support and minor version upgrades) are now included in the license fee, the license is perpetual.

    New Major versions will have an upgrade path for existing customers. Major version upgrades are designed to further enhance the capabilities of igLoader and provide more functionality to your applications. They will not be compulsory purchases for existing license holders, and will not restrict the usage of existing applications.

    Hi, I like what you are doing but it's not in my price span (around zero) right now. Do you plan any discounts for freeware games?

    regards,
    Janko M.
