    3. Windows Explorer built-in zip support
    4. Installers recognition
    5. Updated application security levels
    6. Keyloggers prevention fix
    7. Windows Vista compatibility fixes
    8. Updated Application Database (confidential \Device\PhysicalMemory,
    no_create %systemroot%\system32, and others)

    I have yet to install it, will do it soon. Anyone wants to try, PM me.

    woohoo! IMHO the most important new features have to be 1) the isolated files browser and 2) the built in zip support in windows.

    this is gonna rock :D

    Sweet, the final release seems close. I'm very happy with 2.6 so I'll wait for the final build.
    Thanks aigle :)

    I just installed it. Some isolated application freeze/ delay on its initial launch that was encountered off and on with 2.7 beta 1 is gone. Working OK! It was the main bug i found in last beta. This RC version must be stable and usable by anyone I think. Will know in a few days.

    Hi aigle,

    Do you have any information on the featureset of the free version?

    GeSWall struck me as a very formidable sandbox indeed, though usability issues prevented me from adopting it. Looking forward to the new version.

    Well, yes, but I meant for the new version.

    Specifically, I'm interested in knowing whether the free version has the ability to scan for untrusted files.

    Free version features must remain identical. Atleast they did not mention any change. About untrusted file scan, I am not sure as it seems to be a trial of pro version but I will ask later and inform u.

    Hi,

    Just found a bug (already report it at GS support) : if i move a file labelled as untrusted from one partition to another, GW loses its untrusted state (the file is no more untrusted)

    Regards,

    MaB

    GeSWall with those features arguably overcomes the main disadvantage to SandboxIE.
    Good development!

    I would just add a thing or two, heh, it's an obsession.

    It's not a bug, see http://www.gentlesecurity.com/docs/labels.html
    Only when renaming a file or when moving a file to another folder in the same partition, the untrusted label will stay. When moving a file to another partition the untrusted label will be removed.

    I noted that f I copy an isolated file to other partition via explorer.exe( explorer.exe is always trsuted), isolated file looses its label and becomes trsuted.

    But if I copy an isolated file to another partition via isolated browser( say IE), file reamins untrusted.

    Are there any useful custom rules I can add to the base set?
