Finally it is here! :) This is the last test build before the version 4 official release (ETA March 26th.)

The only change in it is the new time limited trial functionality and we ask you to test this new behavior. Please note that the test trial duration is 3 days and if you will use a promo code “11111-11111-11111-11111-11111” then you’ll get 5 days of evaluation.

New build 551

By Andrey Zarudnev | March 5th, 2010 |

Build 551 one of the latest Beta builds features the totally new functionality for eBoostr. Cache files located on removable devices can now be optionally encrypted. Thus if you lost your flash drive it will be hard to read the cache contents on another computer.

In addition this build now correctly handles the Intel Atom specific issue with unmanaged RAM check (no more freezes :) ).

Currently we are finalizing the new standard time limited trial mode behavior of the product, so the next build will probably be the RC and will be released in a couple of days. Thanks.

Troubleshooting: Get cache file header

By Andrey Zarudnev | February 17th, 2010 |

This article describes the procedure of getting cache file header information to be sent to developers if you were asked to do so.

  1. Download the following tool:
    http://beta.eboostr.com/files/getheader1.exe
  2. Please do not run it, use “Save as…” option
  3. Open the folder you have saved this tool in Windows Explorer
  4. Open another explorer window and browse to your cache device (flash drive or system disk in case of RAM)
  5. Browse to “EBOOSTR” folder (please note this folder has system and hidden attributes)
  6. Drag the file located in this folder and drop it on the “getheader.exe” tool located in another explorer window
  7. This tool should create a file in the same folder that will contain the needed information
  8. Please archive this file and send us by email to beta@eboostr.com (if it is less than 10MB in size), please use the http://drop.io/eboostr/ service if it is larger than 10MB in size.

If you are familiar with the command prompt you can run this tool from the command prompt and give the full pathname to the cache file as a parameter. Optional second parameter is a file name to store the header information.

Build 547

By Andrey Zarudnev | February 9th, 2010 |

More than a month of hard development brings us a new build 547 that should eliminate all of the issues with hidden system memory use. If you had any issues with unmanaged memory in previous versions, please re-test this latest build. Some major changes were made in the product to prepare encryption functionality that also made it more stable.

If there will be no stability issues found in this build then we will release an RC version with encryption included for the last round of testing. Thank you.

Build 545

By Andrey Zarudnev | December 24th, 2009 |

Here goes the last build of this coming to a close 2009 year. Build 545 contains several small fixes and one major change–an instant cache file creation (no more boring “Allocating cache…” progress dialog boxes.)

As we near the end of the year, we wanted to take a moment to thank you for the time, energy, commitment, and trust you’ve shared with us in 2009.

We’re looking forward to working with you to build lasting success in 2010.

Happy Holidays! ;)

Version 4 release date postponed to January

By Andrey Zarudnev | December 1st, 2009 |

The eBoostr version 4 release date, which was originally December 1st, 2009, is now estimated in late January, 2010.

We have decided to postpone the release of version 4 to ensure that it is free of bugs and stable with unmanaged memory operations. Current Beta version sometimes has issues with unmanaged memory detection and its use that may lead to system freezes and crashes.

Adding another month of Beta test will hit the middle of the holiday season, so we postpone the release to late January in order to have enough time to gather your feedback and reports as much as possible, as well as to better prepare for a global release on all local and partner websites.

New Extended Beta license

Build 543 : Automatic Configuration fixes

By Andrey Zarudnev | November 12th, 2009 |

First introduction of the auto configuration wizard spotted many issues and strange results in it. Thank you for all your reports–most of the errors are now fixed in the new build 543. In addition this new build does not require Administrative privileges on Windows Vista and 7 anymore.

  • Finally 64 bit native version is here

    Installation file contains both 32 and 64 bit binaries and installs the needed one during the installation process.

  • Special fail-safe mode

    If your computer was not restarted normally using “Restart” or “Shutdown” Windows option (for example in case of BSOD or system freeze) the next time Windows loads eBoostr does not activate caches. They will remain inactive until you click “Restart caching”. This feature was added to prevent infinite reboots in case of a problem with unmanaged RAM.

Please note! There are no any changes in the unmanaged memory handling code in this build, thus if you had issues before–this build won’t help yet.
