    Hi

    New version of Sandboxie is out.

    Released on 30 June 2008.

    These are the changes to Sandboxie since version 3.26.

    * New translations:
    o Translation to Finnish, contributed by pokpok
    o Translation to German, contributed by Brummelchen
    o Translation to Portugese (Brasil), contributed by anonymous
    o Translation to Turkish, contributed by Volkan Gezer

    * Resolution for long-time problems and annoyances:
    o SBIE1116 errors on Windows XP which prevented Sandboxie from starting.
    o Sandboxed Outlook using incorrect account password.
    o Sandboxed programs and Sandboxie Control immediately recognize new drive letters that appear (for example as a result of mounting a USB drive).

    * Firefox 3:
    o Added default exclusion for the Firefox database of phishing sites, urlclassifier*.sqlite files, to improve start-up time of sandboxed Firefox, and reduce the time needed to recreate this database when the sandbox is deleted.

    * Usability improvements in Sandboxie Control:
    o Real paths are displayed instead of the %placeholder% notation.
    o Hiding SBIE messages through Sandboxie Control hides the message only for the detail specified in the message.
    o Desktop icons do not flicker when Sandboxie Control window is visible.
    o For Windows Vista, added more requests for UAC elevation where necessary.

    * Further improvements to the following issues:
    o Improved support for network shares exposed by Windows computers (including Quick and Immediate Recovery, and Direct and Full Access)
    o There remain some difficulties in accessing network shares exposed by some NAS devices
    o Full support for programs installing and using WinSxS assemblies on both Windows XP and Windows Vista

    * Collection of smaller changes:

    * Default Copy Limit Kb increased to 48MB from 32MB.
    * Fewer temporary files are kept in the sandbox.
    * Fixed PATH environment variable in sandboxed programs.

    * Partially resolved conflict with Rising Antivirus 2008.

    What is the recommended method of upgrading from version 3.26 to 3.28?

    1. Uninstall3.26/RestartPC/Install3.28
    2. Install 3.28 on top of 3.26.

    Thank you.

    I always install any software on top, unless it's clearly specified by the developper, that I have to uninstall the old version first before installing the new version.
    Of course I have a rollback system, if something goes wrong and not every user has that possibility. I like to have an easy life without doubts on my computer.
    Once you leave a problem unsolved, you create other problems, it causes a chain reaction of other problems. :)

    If it's not too big an upgrade, I'll go over the top. I was using 3.26.19 beta which isn't too much of a differance. So far no problems. FF sandboxed is loading in 7 seconds. 3.26 was loading in around 26 seconds. :D

    I am having a hard time seeing the value of Sandboxie.
    The programs I run constantly need to upgrade the hard drive and this program would defeat that.

    Enlighten me please.

    Hi

    What programs do you use that constantly upgrade the hard drive?

    Well Sandboxie is a great security app especially against zero-day threats. Since when you run an application sandboxed, everything that application does is done under a virtual environment.

    Unless using other programs in a sandbox, the only thing I can see that SandboxIE interferes with is Firefox add-on updating, good example being AdBlockPlus.

    If you install Firefox inside Sandboxie the addons are updated too but not the addons outside Sandboxie :). Other way is to start Firefox unsandboxed - Update it - start Firefox sandboxed.
