watchDirectory 4.2 beta
Feb 23rd, 2007 at 6:03pm
Version 4.2 is now released


We have a new WD beta available. This beta also includes the German translations.

The following new functionality is included:

New: This version is Windows Vista Compatible.
New: When using the Fast monitoring method, previous versions would not trigger your task if the plugin didn't support "renamed files". This new version can optionally "translate" the FILEREN event to a FILEDEL and FILENEW event. FILENEW (new file) is supported by most plugins. See the Events window for more information.
New: Several new environment variables are available for the Automatically Run a .bat File plugin:
     WD_FILE_DATE_CR and WD_FILE_TIME_CR contain the creation date and time of the file,
     WD_FILE_DATE_LM and WD_FILE_TIME_LM contain the last modified date and time of the file.
New: The Automatically Upload Files plugin has an option to upload files with a ".partial" file extension. When the upload is complete, the file is renamed to the real name.
New: The Audit Files (who did it) plugin now has a new window (Assistant) to help enter the correct setting for "Path Prefix". This setting was previously named "local directory on the server". This new version is also compatible with (most) RAID setups. This version of the plugin also fixes a problem reported by some Win2003 customers ("Buffer too Small" errors).
New: The Automatic Delete files plugin can remove directories when the last file is deleted from it.

For Vista compatibility, there will be another release soon to make it work even better. Currently, on Vista, the beta above will prompt everytime to ask your permission to run. We will implement something so it will only prompt you if it needs to perform something that requires administrative privileges (installing, starting or stopping a service for example).

Hope you enjoy this new version.
