This new release adds Drag-and-Drop support, which means you can now drag and drop a video file into the GUI or software executable and it will be used as the input automatically. No need to browse for the input video file again! That is, of course, if you use the new drag and drop feature.

Hi everyone,

I started this year being productive and have coded for the past couple of days, hence my absence of posts in this site.

Hence, I took that software and rewrote it from scratch to provide a better user experience. I also updated the software to support the latest PAQ versions, including the latest PAQ8PX and PAQ8PXd releases.
