Seconding Special's praise for HxD 2.0

HxD was remarkably useful yet in its former v1.1.7 incarnation.
Ten years on, the v2.0 release, resurrected from limbo, Phoenix-like,
offers an amazing list of new features and enhancements, such as:

• New Data Inspector
• New Unicode support
• Enhanced Search window
• …

v2.0.0.0 is now out in stable, after almost 10 long years, and it's still the best Hex editor!

^ Opened up a 4 GB file. Editing/saving changes was possible; albeit saving was little slow the first time - after that saving is instantaneous. I am even able fill parts with random data, thus manually destroying the file. I haven't found anything else that could do such a thing. Notepad++, and others choke on such a huge file. I know there's other hex editors but this one satisfies.

No better editor for viewing and editing large hex files.

XVI32 has scripts and XVIscript editor, but HxD has not (yet) these features. Please look inside HxD forum http://forum.mh-nexus.de/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=196

Looks really good. Time for XVI32 to retire ?
