Release notes 

New Features:
Verify Image - Now you can verify an image file with a device. This compares
the image file to the device, not the device to the image file (i.e. if you
write a 2G image file to an 8G device, it will only read 2G of the device for
Additional checksums - Added SHA1 and SHA256 checksums.
Read Only Allocated Partitions - Option to read only to the end of the defined partition(s). Ex: Write a 2G image to a 32G device, reading it to a new file will only read to the end of
the defined partition (2G).
Save last opened folder - The program will now store the last used folder in
the Windows registry and default to it on next execution.
Additional language translations (thanks to devoted users for contributing).
