New Windows apps
A new official tool by GoPro to copy media from digital cameras to Windows PCs. The tool preloads media thumbnails quickly and includes options to select media to import.
It has an easy to use interface and uses the native Windows API to import the files.
RegExp, short for Registry Explorer, is a new open source Registry editor for Windows. The program is available as a beta right now.
RegExp may replace the built-in Registry editor on Windows devices. It supports features that the built-in tool does not support, including a "find all" search function, improved copy/paste operations, list view sorting by all columns, last write time and number of key/values for keys, improved hex editor, and undo/redo functionality.
Rufus 3.15 Beta, a program to create bootable media, introduces support for the vtsi format.
