HashTab 2.0.8 Windows Shell Extension

HashTab is a Windows shell extension which adds a tab called "File Hashes" to the Windows Explorer file properties. The tab contains the MD5, SHA1 and CRC-32 file hashes. These are common hashes that are used to verify the integrity and authenticity of files. Many download sites list the MD5 hash along with the download link. The HashTab makes it very simple for Windows users to check these hashes on any file on the system without using external tools. The screenshot shows an example.

[12/21/2007] 2.0.8 hotfix released
A hotfix for the 2.0 release is available.
This hotfix contains the following changes since 2.0.0:
Fixed hash settings listbox layout
Fixed spelling error on the main dialog
Fixed a problem when canceling and resuming hashing on large files
Added Greek, Italian, Russian, Thai, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan and Japanese UI translations
Fixed a bug when trying to hash an external file for comparison
Fixed the reset button in the hash settings dialog
Fixed a potential deadlock when closing the dialog during a hash operation
Fixed a problem where the hashes were being recalculated if you press enter in the compare text box
Fixed a problem with the installer on 64-bit windows where the Add/Remove programs entry was not being removed correctly
Added an option to produce the hash in lowercase (set this in the settings dialog)
New icons! :)

[11/15/2007] HashTab version 2.0 is released! Several new features have been added to make HashTab more useful and useable. This is the first change to the user interface since version 1.0. More hash algorithms are supported (right click the list to configure which ones are computed).

New features in 2.0:
10 supported hash algorithms
Hash algorithms are configurable, only calculate the ones you care about.
Easier to copy hash data out of HashTab
Easier to compare hash text
Better status indicators when loading and hashing files for comparison
