Since version 3 is AnyBurn as well ISO editor and unarchiver :)

DzejPy on 2016-03-06 12:29

Sorry, the correct version number AnyBurn with the ISO editor is 3.1
Works well. And it's the only free ISO editor (that i know).

Thanks DzejPy. The interface seems clunky, but if it allows modifying bootable ISOs, it could be a winner! I've been looking for a suitable replacement for ImgBurn ever since they added OpenCandy bundleware. This might be it!

FileOptimizer v11.20 Updated

billon on 12 Oct 2017
  • 194MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 Oct 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

FileOptimizer is a broad format file compression tool used to reduce file size without changing the quality, known as "lossless." This is done via wide variety of optimization and recompression tools and techniques. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. A long list of supported formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, M4A), image (GIF, JPEG, PNG), office formats (DOCX, XLSX, ODT, PDF) and system files (DLL, EXE).

Supports drag-and-drop of files into the window or onto the program icon. Note that by default the program removes metadata for many file types. This information reduces overall file size and protects privacy but is important to some users (e.g. photographers) and file search tools.

A 64-bit version is available within the folder, the author reports the program is functional in WINE, and can be used on the command line.

@smaragdus: You will note that the SourceForge page is now listed as being owned by 'sf-editor1'. That is one of the SourceForge staff accounts. What that means for CDex is detailed here in this Ars article:
http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2015/05/sourceforge-grabs-gimp-for-windows-account-wraps-installer-in-bundle-pushing-adware/

tl;dr: SourceForge decided that the project page was abandoned, took it over and bundled the installer with ads, as they have done for a number of other well known projects.

AndTheWolf on 2016-06-18 16:26

The link on this page still points to CDExPortable_1.7.8.paf.exe, not to version 1.8.1. PortableApps.com has the updated link.

Balabolka v2.11.0.638 Updated

billon on 30 Sep 2017
  • 15MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 30 Sep 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

Balabolka is a feature-rich program to read text aloud from a variety of file types including DOC, RTF, PDF, ODT, FB2 and HTML. The program uses Microsoft's own Speech API 4 and 5, but lets you fine tune various voice parameters, including rate and pitch and a substitution list can also be applied to improve the quality of the voice's articulation. The program supports customized font and background color, skins, control reading from the system tray or by the global hotkeys.

Balabolka can also save the synchronized text to external LRC files or in MP3 tags inside the audio files. When the audio file is played with players on a computer or on modern digital audio players, the text will be displayed synchronously (in the same way as lyrics for songs).

Also includes batch conversion tools from of a wide variety of document formats to audio or plain text and a file compare tool, file splitter and screen magnification window.
