You must be crazy.  Or we beta members are under a mass delusion that we've been beta testing 2.5.8.1 Beta, aka 2.5.9.0 when it's finally released, for the past 2 years.  It fixes at least 2 bugs I know of: the USB 3.0 detected as USB 2.0 is now resolved and Windows 10 being detected as Windows 8.

Once again I don't mean to sound ignorant or rude in any way, but it sounds like bunch of empty words that have been just made up. 7 years....7 very very long years and just now you come up with this 2.5.8.1 beta and 2.5.9.0. by the time is in stable version! ..nahh

On a personal level I think ImgBurn was and still might be the best CD/DVD/BD burning tool, even among high priced shareware that I own, but at this point and you can’t blame anyone for thinking that, nothing will convince any either prior or current ImgBurn user that this once great tool is now pretty much dead and the "supposedly beta" you showing its nothing...I would love to be proven wrong..heck..I would gladly pay again ($20, $50, $100) to see new ImgBurn comeback from grave yard after almost a decade

Anyways I don't want to keep on badgering anyone, so I'm done.

Thanks

@awkj the creator (lightning UK) hasn't come up with this beta just now, that's the whole point of these past few points. It's that random member that came up with that 'release', hell 2 can play that game. This isn't directed at you

I can knock up 2.6.0.0 on about 5 seconds of I wanted too. Fire up 2.5.8.0, copy the first few lines from the log generated, paste them here in the reply box and change the version number and windows info. Done, a magical non-existing 2.6.0.0 just appeared out of thin air.

While 8 years is indeed a very long time, as long as there's support, a product isn't dead. Now if support were to end too, that would change things a bit, but even then as long as it would still work I wouldn't be looking for replacement software.

I told myself I won’t respond to any more comments as I still stand by want I said ImgBurn is dead......this is my last post.

What you saying its noting new and I believe you've said that in earlier respond to someone else (sorry If that wasn't you).

You talking about support on here and that indicate that ImgBurn is not dead? You are kidding right. If you read my first post I said, this forum seem fake, not like it used to be several years ago, almost as if it’s not run by LIGHTNING UK!, 

Support on 7year old software that has bugs and they are  simple  bugs and  he can't fix them? well....that is a good sign of dead....end of story

What bugs are you referring to?

I’m pretty sure I’d have fixed anything that was actually a bug at the time it was reported. Of course, me fixing them is very different to me fixing them AND releasing a version that includes those fixes.

The version that I’ve very occasionally worked on over the last 7 years will eventually be released, of course it will, I just have a very bad habit of sitting on things.

I honestly do keep thinking I need to get back to it and get it done. In all honesty, I think I went a year without even having the development environment on my machine. I probably installed it all again and got it to the stage where I can actually compile the code again about a month ago. That’s some serious progress right there! I have a no point said to myself that I’m done with ImgBurn. If I had, this forum wouldn’t be here.

Hey maybe with the corona quarantine you can polish the code a little and release it. Say, in a week? Would sure sir these guys up with 'this thing is dead', and it would sure make us non-whiners happy

I said in my post above that I wouldn't comment again..although I didn't expect your response and I hope I'm not wrong by saying this…You almost sound like there is still hope for ImgBurn, but once again, thus far all that is, is just a bunch  of words.

I was going to give you a lengthily reason why LIGHTNING UK should keep ImgBurn alive, but I rather say just a few humble words.

Among several multimedia software I own, ImgBurn have always been the burning tool of my chose, there was something very special about this truly swiftly tool that unfortunately I have abandoned few years ago due to lack of updates.

Even things like I posted above when on several of my BenQ4 K monitor, ImgBurn  log is separated from main window, unless I change the resolution which is cheap fix that could have been fixed long time ago, believe it or not, but those things  do matter.

Anyhow, even thou I have been using PowerISO, If ImgBurn reincarnated from death I would not hesitate to switch back and I’m not a cheap person by any stretch of imagination I will be more than happy to donate 100Euro as a token of appreciation, that's how much I still would like ImgBurn to be alive and I'm sure, I'm not the only one who feels that way. 

Anyways, I’m truly done dragging this subject.

Thanks for now and let’s see what changes, if anything.

Ha! well, you learn something new every day.

I don't even really remember seeing any mention of a log window snapping issue before. It would have been more useful to put that bug report in the bug reports forum (please excuse me if you'd also done that). I don't run mine snapped and so have never noticed it myself. It worked fine at the time of implementation, but I was probably running XP back then.

I don't have a 4K monitor to do any testing of that issue on, but it just so happens it also occurs on mine. Maybe it's a Windows 10 thing? ImgBurn 2.5.8.0 predates Windows 10, so any abnormalities it caused obviously wouldn't have been resolved.

I'm going to fire up good old C++ Builder 2007 now and see what's going on with it.

EDIT: Update, it's due to the shadow around the windows being classed as part of the window. It won't snap nicely to the left/right/bottom of the screen either.

Does this have anything to do with my recent post about how my log window doesn't remember its location when I change it?  It always defaults back to a default location when I start ImgBurn again.

There is no way org. LIGHTNIG UK would let go this far, no freaking way. Even simple bugs as mismatch of windows ID in the log, let alone log and main ImgBurn window separation and he, LIGHTNING UK whomever that is, has no idea how to fix it or giving excuse of leaving thing on the back burner to sit?, you really had me going for a while and made me believe you were actually for real:)

Phhh... You can say all you want, I still stand by my theory, this is fake website with someone else running it and I'm sure I'm not the only one who knows why people will do such thing.

I really want it to donate big chunk of either $ or Euro and I mean 200-300 because I do care, but why, I’m still asking myself.

Man, I’m DDD for even coming back here.
