    Great product, but hardly new, the last version is 4 years old.

      Sorry was going through some old drafts, this was from 2010 – it was new then :)

    “new application”? Serisously. The Dude is dead for like 4 years already. No more development for a long time, many bugs and a huge problem with large databases. This tool might be helpful for zero-experienced users.

      Yah this draft was from 2010, so it was new then :) And well it’s ‘new’ if you’ve never seen it before right? It’s an interesting concept for a free tool, anything better to suggest?
