So, what’s going on you might ask. First of all, I have released a new version TUGZip (3.5). It fixes some of the annoying bugs that users have reported in the forums and by mail. You can grab it from the downloads section.
As you can see, the website has been updated, unfortunately not to indicate a new era of development on TUGZip but rather the opposite. Unfortunately I am no longer able to support and work on TUGZip as much as I want, I am sure most of you already realized.
I hope to be able to continue developing TUGZip 4 at some time, but for now the development is suspended.
I want to thank everyone for their support all this time, especially everyone providing help in the forums. I also want to apologize for not being able to answer all e-mails, I am receiving more than I can handle. I will try to read through the e-mails I get, but I can’t promise that I’ll answer. I hope you understand this.
I will do my best keeping the website, downloads and forums online.
April 9, 2007
I have updated TUGZip to fix the problem with Windows Update KB925902. You may download the new installation package or just the updated TUGZip.exe.
Unfortunately the future of TUGZip does not look very bright at the moment. I need to figure out what to do. Also sorry for the lack of e-mail support lateley, I am to busy to answer all e-mails, please try to search the forum for help instead.

This day started bad, when i started my computer this morning I heard a strange sound. My primary harddrive sounded very bad and my mainboard couldn’t find it. I tried the harddrive in my server but the same problem appeared on that machine. I realized that the harddrive was broken so I went to by a new one, luckily I make backups regularly so I didn’t lose TUGZip.
