With version 0.6.0, the project reached a very important milestone. Whereas branch 0.5 introduced API hooking as a spying solution, the new branch 0.6 improves this by using kernel mode hooking.

This new 0.6.3 release introduce a new efficient antivirus scanner cache.
In previous versions (<=0.6.2) the cache was in user-space, which requires many communication between kernel module and user-space application. The new scanner cache is in kernel space, so this reduce exchanges between driver and application and thus increase the whole system speed.
This new release also improves the support of Windows Vista.

Warning: this version is not available for 64-bits Windows editions.
