Hey there,

Have Photopost version 5.62 at the moment and I've been looking at possibly upgrading but before I sock out some funds, I'd like to know what exactly is the difference, the added features and the incentives to do so.

Is there a list about that details this? If not, could ya'll enlighten me.

Regards,
Nathan

====================
VERSION UPDATE: 6.02
====================

Minor update with bug fixes reported to date resolved.

Security Note: A hard check for .php, .pl and .cgi file extensions is filenames is not being done to reject files with these
extensions embedded anywhere in the filename. While PhotoPost does not allow periods in filenames, these are converted to
underscores, we believe that any file with a script extensions should be outright rejected in the event someone is
trying to upload malicious data to your server.
