    Eraser 5.8.7-beta 4 Standard and Portable

    I have 5.8.6 on my work computer. I haven't put Eraser on my laptop yet because I thought I would wait for the final release of 5.8.7. You are now at 5.8.7 beta 4. What is your approximate prediction on when the final release for 5.8.7 will be available? I am not in any hurry, just trying to...

    Can I install v.5.8.7-beta4 over v.5.86.1 or should I uninstall the old version first? Do I need to install the Certificate for betas first? Note: the Certificate link on the Installing Betas webpage does not work.

    Eraser 5.8.7-beta 4 Standard and Portable

    Thanks for the information. So it sounds like v. 5 will still work ok, but won't have all the great features that v. 6 can offer. I don't know enough about .NET Framework to know if it would be a good investment of space on my computer and whether it would be used by other apps in the...

    Eraser 5.8.7-beta 4 Standard and Portable

    Will v. 5 be maintained in the future? I have a limited amount of hard drive space on my computer so I don't want to use approx. 500mb for .NET Framework so that I can use Eraser 6. I am wondering if v. 5 will be maintained going into the future?

    Eraser 6-rc3

    Thanks for the information. I don't have much space on my hard drive so this is why I am concerned. So, v.5.87 does not require .NET, right.
