Should I upgrade from 1.3?

File Juggler 2.0 will not import your rules from version 1.3.x, so you will need to recreate rules manually. File Juggler 2.0 will install and run seperately from 1.3, so you will not lose any data when upgrading and you can switch back easily.

If you don't need any of the new features in 2.0, there's no problem in staying with 1.3.

You can run 1.3 and 2.0 at the same time, if you make sure they don't work in the same directory. This will of course use additional system resources.

A File Juggler license is valid for both versions, and you can use the same registration key.

Changes from 2.04 to 2.05

Bugfixes

  • A few minor fixes

Other changes

  • Case sensitivity is optional in Regular Expression variables
