Some updates for the next release:

_ HDClone (4.3.2, ATM) (and its pdf)
_ Diskcheck (4.3.0, ATM). It needs the ISO image variant now, instead of the 2 floppy images that this new version requires.

*****
deltree.com goes in fdubcd -> level1 -> freedos.cab.

DELTREE 1.02g
http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/micro/pc-stuff/freedos/files/dos/deltree/
BEWARE not to confuse the default deltree.com with the other similar programs in the archive, as each variant has its own behavior.

Note: I have not tested it; I am just reproducing here the announcement from FreeDOS news.

I'm not sure if this is worth updating in FDUBCD, but I checked the software list in the FreeDOS website and found that 2 programs have new versions.

http://www.freedos.org/software/?prog=deltree
v1.02f -> v1.02g

http://www.freedos.org/software/?prog=jemm386
v5.75 -> v5.78

I don't know if these updates breaks anything or not.

Beside the FreeDOS software list, I would also update CWSDPMI.EXE in various packages in FDUBCD, if it is I that customize UBCD.

v5 -> v7

AFAIK, cwsdpmi r7 only helps when a program can take advantage of 512MB or more RAM.

Is there any specific program in FDUBCD that would benefit from cwsdpmi r7?

_ hdshredder (4.0.0, ATM). It needs the ISO image variant now, instead of the 2 floppy images that this new version requires.

_ ASTRA for DOS 6.04

I would only upgrade if we can identify some specific benefit to a particular program with r7.
