What's New in version 2.0.9
  • Application:
  • The option Use preferred text encoding if no acceptable codec is detected does the opposite to what it should (uses the preferred codec on binary files, but not on text files).
  • The preferred codec, used by default when detecting the encoding of a file for which no acceptable codec was found, is not anymore cached. Thus, running a detection with a new preferred codec, updates the default codec used on such a file.
