Lemkesoft has updated its one-stop image conversion shop GraphicConverter to version 7.1. New this time around is an option to scale images to iTunes Cover size, support for importing .srw files, a digital lightroom mode, and a 100-percent preview mode in the browser. Also introduced is a variety of options for manipulating slideshows. Additionally, the new version adds support for PDF exporting with alpha channel and updates the raw image converter. Localizations for German, Danish, Japanese, and Portuguese are all updated, too. Nearly a dozen bug fixes round out the update; full release notes are available at Lemkesoft’s site. ($39.95 new, $25.95 upgrade, free update, 100 MB)
Trust Local Addresses in VirusBarrier X6's Antivandal
VirusBarrier X6's Antivandal feature stops all kinds of network attacks, including port scans, ping floods and more. However, you may have some devices on your network that send out pings or other requests that may be interpreted as attacks. To prevent this, add them to the Trusted Addresses list so they won't be blocked. You can even add a range of addresses with wildcards, such as 192.168.1.*.

We try hard to distinguish between upgrades, which are not free and are associated with major version changes, and updates, which are usually free, and come within a major version.
The problem is that upgrades stick around forever - you can almost always upgrade from an ancient version of a program to the latest - but after some point in time, there's no reason to list that out since everyone who's paying attention will already have the last major version and will be interested only in the update. In this case, GraphicConverter 7 is recent enough that it's worth keeping the upgrade details in there.
