UltraCompare v9 is just days away from beta with a release planned for February. The new version includes a more powerful text conversion engine which greatly improves PDF handling in text compare. Users will enjoy a tremendous performance gain with remote folder compare, as the need to download files before comparison has been eliminated with basic folder compares keying off of the remote directory listing! Also planned for v9 are file type filter additions, user interface improvements, and a handful of functionality and usability tweaks. And like UltraEdit v19, UltraCompare v9 will feature the same robust integration for the all-new UltraSentry and UltraFinder.
