It was planned that a next version should have been out in mid December. But that didn't happen. Not even a beta is out and it is now mid January.
But a beta will come out soon, The new plan is a Beta before the end of the week
This delay is because I been very busy with other things so I have not had so much time to spend on MultiCommander that I thought. I have not had time to add any new major. But a couple of minor new features have been added and a bunch fixes. I have been doing lots of the ground work for some major features for the future so adding them should be faster. But that is nothing that you as a user are noticing in the program.
However, a while back when working on another project I created some text tools. And with just a little extra work I was able to move this tools into MultiCommander. It is not something that was really planed and not something that most people need. But they are two really useful text tool for some people and makes a good addition. So if we count them. Then two major feature was added.
