S.A.F.E. recently released version 4.4 of CodeSuite and version 1.1 of CodeSuite-LT. The most important new feature of this version is that these programs now recognizes many different text encoding formats including ASCII, UTF-8, UTF-16, and UTF-32. Characters in alphabets other than the Latin alphabet used for English are now supported. For example, code with comments or strings in Japanese, Korean, Chinese, or Russian can be compared correctly.
The most significant change is to BitMatch. When examining binary object code to find text strings, you can now specify the encoding format of the file. If you're not sure about the encoding, you can choose multiple formats.
As demand for our products increase outside the United States, we realized a need to support languages in those countries also.
