- The scanner now logs in with user-specified credentials used in a scan when exploring a shared folder.
- User interface enhancements: Improved the status display, showing a number of visible/total computesr, and a number of threads separately.
- Columns made draggable allowing the user to arrange them in a convenient way.
- Ping ICMP requests are now sent with a 32-byte payload. Previously they were sent without any payload, which some routers handled incorrectly.

- Fixed an issue in which computers being scanned have been wrongly hidden if a filter was applied.
- Fixed a tiny problem with icon showing scan progress.
- Added enhanced paste IP address feature.
- Tab now allows to switch between two IP address input fields.
- Added a 'Rescan all computers' command that lets you re-scan all the computers shown in the list (filtered or not).
