- Bug fixed: If you try to reboot the computer without closing Soft Organizer, a message was shown that latter does not allow to end the session.
- Bug fixed: High CPU resources consumption during the work of the standard uninstaller when removing an application.
- When removing the application traces now the backup is created in the Undoing Change Center. This makes it easy to recover the deleted application traces in case of necessary, for example, if you removed the program's traces, whereupon decided that you wish to continue using it.
- Uninstalling applications is faster due to the fact that the system restore point is not created now before the application's traces removal. (The quickly working Undoing changes center is now used instead to provide the ability to rollback the traces removal).
- If the installer execution tracking agent is enabled, it gets loaded with a 1 minute delay after logging in to the system. (Previously this used to occur immediately after logging in.) This was done to boost the system's moving into the fully working condition by reducing the number of processes executed simultaneously just after the system has loaded.
- The application icons in the tabled view became larger and rendered better (under Windows Vista or higher).
- Increased accuracy of the application installing with tracing function. In some cases the superfluous registry might have been added to the applications traces.
- The search for the installed applications updates function now works faster (significantly faster on some systems).
- When pressing the Download Update button for one of the applications for which the update was found, the new version information page is opened right away now, without the intermediate page. For applications with the verified update only.
- The Installer Execution Tracking Agent has been updated to eliminate incorrect recognition of some launched processes as installers.
- Bug fixed: In some cases the superfluous folders were added to the applications traces.
- Bug fixed: In some cases the superfluous registry entries had been added to the applications traces.
- For each installed application, Soft Organizer now shows the percentage of users who removed the application shortly after installation. This helps to identify the unnecessary applications.
- A change to the installed applications updating function. If an update is detected for some application and Soft Organizer can provide a verified download link for the update, the application will be highlighted in the list with a checkmark.
- Interface improvement: The Notation Conventions window's height was increased which removes the vertical scroll bar.

- When uninstalling applications that may change the browser settings, like various browser toolbars, Soft Organizer shows information about how to return your browser's settings to the initial state.
- Soft Organizer is now able to determine the name of the application installed with tracing even if it does not register itself in the registry (in the uninstall keys). For example, such situation may take place for portable applications. Earlier, by default such applications were assigned the "Installed Application" name.
- The Installer Execution Tracking Agent has been improved.
- Fixed bugs:
- When running under the 64-bit system, when running the application's tracing using the Explorer context menu the program to be traced have not been launched automatically if located in the C:\Windows\System32 folder.
- Hanging-up when showing the main window under Windows XP.
- Entries filtering is accelerated on slow systems when entering the search string in the top right part of the window.

- Now is it easy to remove multiple applications at once. To activate this function select a program and click at the arrow on the Uninstall Application button.
- The rarely used items have been removed from the applications list. Currently, a larger number of system and service components will not be shown in the applications list by default, but it is easy to enable the displaying of them, if necessary, by using the button on the status bar at the bottom of the window.
- Now Soft Organizer checks for updates for more of programs.
- A right click on every tree-like list in the program now results in selecting the item (not only summoning its context menu).
- A button was added beside the program names allowing you to view what a program is meant for. (Available only for a limited number of programs yet. The database is continually filling up.)
- The Applications list menu now features a command to export the list of installed programs to an HTML file.
- If an application for which installation was traced is removed without Soft Organizer participation (for instance, using its own uninstall tool) the traces data is not erased. You can use it later to clean the system from the uninstalled application leftovers.
- Added Polish language support.
- Fixed bug: If the installed programs updates feature has been disabled through the Soft Organizer settings, the ability to group the programs by the new version existence was still available in the menu.
