Complete Version history / Release notes / Changelog / What's New for URL Snooper

2.41.01 - Mar 24, 2017

[MajorFeature] First High-dpi compatible version beta.
[Bugfix] Minor UI bugfixes.
[Improvement] Better mouseover hints for General Options.
[MinorFeature] New option to not clean/truncate displayed urls.

2.39.01 - Nov 6, 2015

2.38.01 - Apr 28, 2015

[Feature] New option to start sniffing immediately when program is started, even in advanced mode.
[BugFix/Feature] New option to better handle the "Also Find" text. In previous versions a url would be excluded if it did not match url filter type (multimedia vs all), even if it contained an Also Find keyword. You now have an option (enabled by default) to always include results that match the Also Find keyword, even if it does not match the url filter type. This is most useful when restricting search for multimedia urls but also anything containing the keyword. Tip: Use ; character to separate multiple keywords.

* New option to discard filtered-out urls that aren't display; normally the program stores all urls found even if its currently set to filter out all but multimedia urls, so that you can change the view filter to show all urls after the fact.The new option will discard them during filtering, which is a good solution for people who were ending up storing huge numbers of urls while searching for multimedia urls.
