New in build 1.9.5.157

New Signature Algorithm

An important change in this version is that it uses an improved, and more reliable, algorithm for calculating file signatures. File signatures are calculated and stored in the database when you use the Folder Verification feature. Because of the new algorithm, all old signature in your database will be invalidated.
By running the Folder Verification again it will calculate and store all the signatures with the new algorithm.

This change makes the Folder Mechanism feature more reliable in detecting changes in files that were made outside the application. Thank you for understanding.
