  • Option to make images auto-open
  • The status window has a contextual menu for quickly changing common preferences
  • You can optionally set the names of the image file and volume, instead of having them based on the name of the folder
  • Documentation is now included in Apple Help (HTML) format as well as PDF
  • Contains a menu command for clearing the log
  • No longer fails when copying files for which the user only has read privileges
  • The radio buttons for selecting where the image will be saved are no longer linked to the image destination text field
