- Small update regarding bots: now it is possible to perform a quick test to be sure that the email sender works fine, directly by the builder, using the “Test email” button. An email will be sent to your address, and a text file will be created and will contain the list of receiver email addresses of the real delivery. In the test, the message is sent to noone except your email.
- Added swedish language to MSN multilanguage bo.
- Recodings to avoid latest idiotic AV false positives; now builder uses a C++ dll I wrote, to write data into stub. User interface is the same, there are no visible differences, all operations with the dll are carried out automatically; as always the user just needs to click “build” button and Octopus does all the rest!
