This version also fix several bugs:

  • Added confirmation when downloading hostnames and the box is already filled by other hostname.
  • Fixed bug. When the checking for new version and new version dialog is displayed, the checking IP process is suspended until the dialog is closed.
  • Fixed bug when force update is required and a non fatal error is resulted. Previously, Kana Dynamic IP Updater will not be able to do the update, but keep trying. This results in continuous beeping.
  • Fixed bug when doing offline update. In previous version, the offline IP address was not recorded so the information displayed on updated IP is not valid.
  • Fixed various cosmetic bugs when running on Vista

Although Windows Vista is not officially supported in this version, several tests indicated it works with only minor problems.

If you are using this version, please report the problem, especially if you are running Windows Vista.
