AEP v5.94 - improved file encryption process. Improved file encryption process: already encrypted (.aep) files are skipped automatically..

April 10, 2014

We are happy to announce AEP v5.94

In this version we solved the problem - AEP encrypted .aep files in the selected folder again and again.

Now AEP skips .aep encrypted files automatically when encrypting whole folder.

AEP v5.93 - improved gui. The windows task bar is not freezed when encrypting files. Improved gui of the encryption window: the password confirmation becomes red when it does not match the first password. Improved gui of the file error window. Improved compatibility with previous format of the encrypted file. .

We are happy to announce AEP v5.93 featuring new, completely redesigned Encryption Password window and other parts.

In this version we solved the problem - Windows TaskBar and other windows were freezed sometime when AEP encrypted files.

Additionally, we redesigned the Encryption Password Window. Now it has second password field:

Also, we added new behaviour for the second password field. It becomes Red when it does not match the first password:

password confirmation becomes red when the second password does not match the first password

Moreover, we solved the File Error Window resizing problem for too long file paths:

and now it works fine

We significally rewritten the module of encryption/decryption of files(s) when file is dragged-and-dropped from one location to another using right mouse button:

Now this operation supports unicode file names.

Moreover, we fixed strange bug: when Wipe operation was clicked in the shell context menu, AEP asked confirmation for the operation, but it deleted selected files even when user cliecked the No button :-)

At last, we improved compatibility with old encryption files. Improved handling of special characters in password in unicode password mode.

AEP 2014 v5.92 - Replaced Click-Open-Encrypt operation. Improved "Wipe" & "Double click / edit / encrypt again" operations..

February 11, 2014

We are happy to announce AEP v5.92 featuring new, completely redesigned, Wipe and Double Click / Open / Encrypt operations

In this build we completely rewriten the Double Click / Open / Encrypt operation. Now it works faster and better. It provides possibility, for example, to double click the encrypted Excel document (on the Desktop), enter password and edit it in Excel. Then, when Excel is closed, AEP detects it and reencrypt the changed document again using the same password.

Additionally, in this build, we completely rewritten the Wipe feature, called from shell context menu. Now it works 10-20x faster and has different interface.

Future of AEP

With this minor version, we finished to integrate new developed CryptoPlatform into modules, called from the shell context menu. 

In next versions of AEP, we have plans to add completely new feature: the passwords database available to all modules of AEP. 

After that the main AEP's application will be removed from the project and, possibly, replaced by new application with brand-new interface.

Stay Tuned!

AEP 2014 v5.91 - New Encryption / Encryption to SFX Password window. Improved file encryption procedure when encryption files from shell context menu..

January 17, 2014

We are happy to announce AEP v5.91 featuring new, completely redesigned, file encryption / file sfx encryption feature.

Since march 2013 we have been developing new encrytion engine for aep. Currently, 90% of the internal engine has been rewritten, it will be faster and provide additional features and, possibliy, it will allow to port aep to another platforms, for example Android OS.

This minor version is our next step to move AEP to the new developed crypto platform.

In this minor version we worked hard to replace old encryption file dialog to thw new, modern one.

With new password window you see necessary data only. 

It is possibly to change the destiny of source files by clicking the Change hyperlink.

To change additional settings, it is possible to expand the window by clicking the More button.

It is possible to quickly change the used encryption algorithm by clicking the algorithm's hyperlink:

Additionally, this new design of the password window is used when encrypting files to self-decrypting variants:

encrypt files to self decrypting files

Moreover, in this version we update the logic of displaying the progress of wiping files after encryption. Now it is much more clear:

encyrpt and wipe file progress

Additionally, we added support for UTF8/Unicode registration user names. 

Moreover, since this version, the aep is fully unicode filenames compatible when encrypting and decrypting files. It gives possibility to encrypt files/folders with native characters in the filename. Unfortunatelly, this feature is available when encrypting/decrypting from shell context menu only, not from main application yet.

And last, wow the program has an improved Sfx Module which in earlier versions, under certain circumstances, displayed the "Application Compatibility Assistant" when closing the window on vista os and later.

AEP 2014 5.90 - improved decryption from context menu. Improved decryption from context menu..

December 16, 2013

Version 5.90 (December 16, 2013) 

Since march 2013 we have been developing new encrytion engine for aep. Currently, 90% of the internal engine has been rewritten, it will be faster and provide additional features.

In this minor version we replaced old file decryption module (called from windows explorer context menu) by new one (based on the new engine). Now it is much faster than previous one (20 megabytes per second and faster) and provides new features.

For example, when next file cannot be decrypted using current password, AEP asks for the concrete file's password, remembers it and uses remembered passwords to decrypt next files. Previously, it asked passwor only once and displayed "wrong password" message in the log for every file with another password. Additionally, now it is possible to skip file with unknown password.

Additionally, changed error handling during decryption: when any error occured (for example not enough free space on target drive), AEP does not break whole operation as previously, bot tries to recoever and offers possibility to repeat operaiton, sip file or abort decryption.

decryption error dialog

Additionally, the decryption operation now supports unicode in file names (in next minor version we will add the unicode support to other operations).

And last, we removed the product from "Advanced Encryption Package 2013 Professional" to more shorten variant "Advanced Encryption Package 2014", because we have no "AEP 2013 Standard" anymore.

And we removed the USB support since this minor version. Future AEP versions will have abosulety another model of handling database of passwords.
