New features

Ketarin 1.5 introduces a number of new features to make your life easier (or more geeky if you prefer):

  • Setup functionality: Allows you to batch install or update existing applications on any computer with a couple of clicks. It does all what [[1]] can do, just in a more flexible way.
  • Dual scripting engine: You can now add custom behaviours to your applications with both Batch and C# scripts. Also new: Snippets allow you to re-use often used scripts.
  • Custom user agents for downloading applications (some websites may require certain user agents in order to download).
  • Ketarin now internally also stores relative paths to files, so that changes of drive letters (USB sticks) will not cause Ketarin to forget where the files are located.
