Great stuff. That's a big list and obviously a lot of work. Thanks nikkho.
Reenabled ECT on APNG files (fhanau).
Nice to see the APNG optimizations. I've put a lot of energy into that format and I'm glad to see it just keep gaining ground.

A very nice review, which makes FileOptimizer even more well-know. Hope more and more users get into it.
It is even unofficially translated to japanesse! http://www.vector.co.jp/magazine/softne ... 06131.html

Nikkho:

Just a note that I had some problems with Word file compression, with FileOptimizer making embedded images turn to white boxes with those small "X" symbols. Unfortunately the file this occurred on had some proprietary data on it so I can't post it here for you to look at. I'll try to get you a sanitized version if I can manage it. Just something to watch out for.

Yes. Just have a report about it: https://sourceforge.net/p/nikkhokkho/di ... /22104b78/
We are currently investigating if the problem is in ECT.
Any additional detail is welcomed.

Ah great news. I was feeling foolish that I couldn't come up with a proper bug report.

Donations are very low in relation to the number of users for almost all freeware programs. I definitely acknowledge that issue.
Okay, I got some surplus together and made a donation. I hope that helps.
