  • bugfix: DlgItemTemplateEx has 32-bit ID and not only 16-bit
  • bugfix: non-extended menus can have popup flags separated without comma
  • bugfix: committing version resource multiple times would corrupt version resource

  • bugfix: on save, cleanly remove an authenticate signature instead of rendering it defunct
  • new command line parameter:
    -extract <resource> <file> [extract a resource to file]

  • Improved command line parameters, specify as many operations at once.
  • added new command line parameter: -extract
