Simon 4.2

Dejal Systems has released Simon 4.2 with a number of improvements to the server-monitoring tool, including an Exclude Block filter (which outputs the text outside the block, instead of inside like the normal Block filter) and difference analysis filters (including Extract List, Extract Changes to List, and Rich Text Representation of Changes filters). The update also brings several email and preview improvements, fixes an issue with uploading reports to remote FTP servers, resolves a crash that occurred when adding a new report with the Preview pane selected, updates the Sparkle updater framework, and adds new filter variables (including support for referring to prior filters). ($99 new, free
update for version 4 licenses, $49 upgrade from version 3, 16 MB, release notes)
