Differences Between V2.3.7 and V2.3.8
New Features:
  • New RSA encryption types added: SARSAHIGH (3) and SARSALOW (4).
Issues Addressed:
  • Two Fish encryption/decryption failure on files larger than 1K.

New Features:
  • To ease portability for those familiar with this object, we have implemented virtually all of the same methods and properties of the Microsoft Scripting.FileSystemObject, while adding many additional features:
    • Modifying Access Control Lists (ACL).
    • Import and Export to Database Blob (independent of upload or download).
    • Showing and modifying file ownership.
    • Logon User / Revert To Self.
    • Registering a DLL.
    • All at significantly enhanced performance, especially for directory traversal.
Differences Between V1.1 and V1.2
New Features:
  • Binary file access is significantly faster. According to our benchmarks, SA-FileManager can read binary files up to 100 times faster than Visual Basic's native binary file input.
  • Easy iterations over Access Control Entries.
  • A new sample showing early binding with Visual Basic is included.
Differences Between V1.0 and V1.1
New Features:
  • Enhanced compatibility with the Microsoft Scripting.FileSystemObject.
  • Binary file manipulation. You can now read the content of any uploaded file, even if it is an image.
