Software Update: Total Commander 7.55

Christian Ghisler released the final release of version 7.55 of Total Commander on Thursday after three betas and as many release candidates. This program can be used as a replacement for Windows Explorer. Splitting the image in half makes it easy to copy files, but the program can do much more. There are various ways to modify files, there is a built-in ftp client and a multi-rename tool and there is support for a large number of compression formats. Furthermore, the functionality with plugins be expanded.

New in version 7.55 is, among other things, the possibility to specify options before the copying process starts. Furthermore, files can be exchanged between two computers via a special USB cable and various improvements have been made to the FTP part. Also, many more processes can now run in the background. This leaves the main program available for other things and archive files can now also be opened in virtual directories. Below is an overview of the main improvements in version 7.55:
