Software update: MultiPar

MultiPar is an open source program with which files and associated parchive files can be checked for corruption. If necessary, it can reconstruct the data. This is used, among other things, for exchanging files via Usenet, since these are divided into different parts and not all parts are available on all Usenet servers. MultiPar was released a few days ago with the following list of changes:
