    Release Notes for the latest version:

    I wasn't happy to see this either. I know it's tough for developers of free software to live from donations but still... :(

    Seems like I remember last month Mr. Seleborg said he would offer non Open Candy installers on a one by one basis if requested by email. But I no longer see that offer. Although, in the couple or so emails I have exchanged with him, he seemed decent enough and would probably still do so if asked.

    In my opinion, there's no nicer guy in the security development world than Svante Seleborg. He's accessible, too. I would simply contact him with your concerns.

    isn't AxCrypt OpenSource? If so just compile from scratch. Pretty easy too!

    What I'm curious about is that when I installed it, no ads where presented during installation. Does it have to do with blocking the installer connections through a firewall? I'm using Windows Firewall 2-way.

    OpenCandy requires a web connection. The "offerings" vary and no one offering is packaged with an OpenCandy installer (at least I have never seen any. And not that I have much experience having only seen 1 or 2.)

    Bottom line is if you blocked it, you likely wouldn't see anything...
