Last version, 5 years+, Will ImgBurn ever be updated to address bugs or add features?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This software is one of the best for burning optical media. I've always liked it. But I have to ask the question. The last official version was released almost 5 years ago. Will it ever be updated to address bugs or add features?

 

A feature request I would like to see is something along the lines of statistics. Like showing how many of the last burns were successful and without issue. And the media brand used could be added as well.

 

"21 of the last 25 burns were successful. Media used: 8x - RiData, 15x - Verbatim, 2x - Optical Quantumm". 

 

"4 of the last failed burned were for the following reasons: 2x - Program Memory Area Update Failure, 2x - Whatever and Whatever".

 

EDIT: Now that I think about it though, if ImgBurn doesn't flush the log output window data to text log files on a failure this won't work.

 

I can figure out all this myself so it's not a big deal but I just thought I would throw it out there.

 

Over the lifetime of my BD-R burns (probably around 100 now) the majority have been pretty successful. I hate it when one fails!

This question has never been answered. I'm still curious about it. This is a great software application. I have a theory about why there hasn't been an update released in 5+ years. I can share it if anybody wants to hear it? Oh, and it's definitely not because the software is bug-free.

Oooooh go on then, please share your theory!

The changelog for the next release currently contains 7 'fixed' items. None of which are important.

I'll give a shot.

My theory is that because this is such a great freeware burning solution that someone (I don't know who, ;)) is soliciting or waiting for offers and releasing a newer version of the software would impact the value of those offers. I know I wouldn't pay for a software package that was 2 days newer than the last free version versus a software package that was updated 5+ years ago.

That's my theory. I could be wrong. :)

Yup, you're wrong. :lol:

"How long do you want me to fry. 5 years? 10 years? You want to play 'kick the dog' for the rest of your life?" I give up. Please do tell. :)
