- Changed online results DB to be compressed. A smaller file size = faster download.
- Online results DB now only downloads if the current DB is >24 hours old. Previously a new one would download every time the program was opened.

Please submit your game and program results from within CompactGUI. Because of a bug in Windows, many larger games have vastly overestimated savings and the current Wiki is therefore inaccurate. I need new submissions to build up the database again so that the old one can be removed.
- Major Backend Rework
- Individually calls compact.exe per file
- Removed dependency on compact.exe MUI tables for parsing. (Significantly slower, but allows the next point to exist)
- Implemented workaround for the Windows bug that results in inflated savings for files >4GB.
- Added a check to make sure files outside of the working directory cannot be compressed.
- Skip Files that are Poorly Compressed - Implemented ability to skip poorly-compressable files (configurable from menu) - Mitigates the effects of the above changes
- Added Wiki Submission Form - Simplifies the submission of results to Google Forms.
- Many UI tweaks and changes
- Multiple backend usability and performance changes.
- Made output console always visible, tweaked refresh timings to negate performance impact.
This release removes all the MUI parsing which was previously required for users of many other languages. If you have any issues, please post an issue with details.

- Fixed being unable to disable the experimental file/folder browser when it is unchecked from the options menu. #157
- Added a flyout notification when compression is finished
- CompactGUI can now be minimised to the system tray
Infopopup to be an
Optionswindow to accommodate more features.
- Redesigned the
Online Resultsflyout for compression estimates
- Implemented experimental custom file + folder browser (which can be enabled under
Experimentalin the Options menu) but it currently does not support file selection. You can choose the files, but nothing will actually happen.
- Animated the percentage arc on the results page.
- Multiple other minor UI tweaks (mainly just realignments and color changes)
- Added a buffer to compact.exe's output. This outputs to the console at maximum 20 times per second, which fixes the massive slowdowns that occurred if you tried compressing while the
Console Outputis visible and compact.exe was processing hundreds of files per second.
- This release only has a few new features, but behind the scenes there has been a lot of cleanups and optimizations. This will inevitably lead to bugs, so please report those in the Issues so that they can be fixed.
- Actually fixed it this time: Startup error for users who don't use "." as a decimal separator - Occurs when parsing online for a new version. Ironically people affected by this issue won't get a banner telling them a new version is available. Thanks @mkarpusiewicz

Didn't actually fix much. See new release
