ABOUT

It comes with GUI completly translated in Croatian, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Italian, Romanian, Russian, Slovakian, Spanish and Traditional Chinese (it will be auto-picked according to your system language (defaults to english if there's no translation in your language, but also it allows you to change it to any other)).

DEPENDENCIES

TRANSLATION

If you wish to translate Hash Checker into your language, you can take a look at Hash Checker's pack. Extract it and open it's folder. Inside it you'll find "files" folder and "Translation" file in it. Also, you can download "Translation" file from this site, which might be better idea, since it is up-to-date.
Last changelog:

Moved old Hash Checker (v4.0.8) from dropbox to gnome-look. Everything else is the same.

but all praise goes to its creator. Funny, but it's surprising how much I use Hash Checker. A very useful tool. Looking forward to your new releases.

Thanks again.

Thank you, again... this time for your kind words! :)
HC 3.9.9 is almost out, and has few small fixes, as well as few code optimizations.
Stay tuned in!
If all goes well, release date should be 15.04.2011.

New Hash Checker will be able to check for SHA1 hashes as well as those two hash checks from before (SHA256 and MD5).
Thanx goes to Bob Good for this suggestion!
HC 3.9.9 should be out in approx. 2 weeks (need to test it completly).
There are also some small fixes in Portugese (Brasil) and Croatian translations, as well as small optimization in all translations.

I almost missed releasing it this day, since I was hospitalized for a few days. But now that my health seems to be ok, here I am! I've tested new HC on a lot of systems, so if you find any new bugs, please report, with HC version and on what system you used it on, and I'll see what can be done to fix it ASAP. :)

I like your nautilus script. Very useful. But how about adding SHA1 to your selection list. I know SHA1 is not as common as md5 or SHA256 but it does pop up once in a while.

Thanks for your efforts.

Thank you for your comment. I'll see what can be done in that case, but don't expect it in next release (3.9.8) since it's done, but needs some more testings. It won't be a problem, adding SHA1 will be as easy as those two it already has, but since version 4.0 seems to be close, perhaps I could leave it until next "round" version. 4.0 will also have much nicer installer, or at least I'll try to make it look better and shorter on reinstalls. :)

My appologies for being so late with new HC script. I had too much to do in few last days so I had to put it behind a bit. Finally, it's here! Enjoy! :) ;)

I found new potential bug (now in "clearing" quote signs from strings taken from HashCheck.rc file), and replaced it with new way of "reading" them. Result is somewhat smaller Setup file, and clearer code. :)
Until I release it, some other changes may occur, but for now that's it. You can expect it in a few days, not later than the end of the next week (changes need testing).

In current Hash Checker 3.9.5 and few versions back, there's an potential language name bug, which will be fixed in next release (3.9.6). Also, I'm working on making it write as less as possible, so that it can be SSD friendly script. I already made seperate script which lacks "Google it" feature because of that, but I'll try to fix it and implement it all in next release.

Found and successfully fixed few possible bugs in latest HC, also I'm working on making it write less data (checkbox status will be saved only user changes it).
New HC should be available soon, so stay tuned! ;)

I managed to fix unnecessary writing to disk, so once it gets released, v3.9.2 will be finaly retired! Also, there's new translation available - Italian! :)
Until it gets released, there might be some other modifications, so stay tuned! ;)

And, of course, don't forget to vote and become a fan! :)

New Hash Checker script has no differences comparing to 3.9.2, but new Setup makes it Desktop Enviroment independent! That means it can be used on KDE, XFCE, LXDE... Haven't really tested it yet on all DE's, but until released, it should be ready and tested on some other DE's. So, some minor testing and coding yet to be finished, and it will be here!

I recived russian translation today and already implemented it into new Setup script. It needs testing from it's translator, and it will be here pretty soon as HC 3.9.2. So far nothing's new in HC script, but until released, some changes might appear. :)

Lots of good stuff, feel free to check it out yourself! Once you do, you'll never test your downloads from terminal again! ;)

I discovered that Setup script has small but annoying bug when you try to reinstall HC on OS that has zenity version bellow 2.24.0. Those users need to uninstall HC first, then install it again. There's an error in function CHECK_CURRENTLY_INSTALLED_VERSION. Two lines are missplaced. Fixed version with few other improvements and fixes will be released some time next week.
Once you install HC on any OS, it will work without any problems! ;)

Originaly i uploaded .tar.bz2 pack of new HC 3.9 (coz of better compression ratio than .tar.gz), but for some strange reason, it wasn't reachable. I appologize to any one who couldn't get it downloaded. I noticed problem and fixed it few minutes after it was online.
I hope you'll love this release! :)

I updated Update Checker due to new settings in 3.9 version. Also, it's most likely I'll make separate home page for Update Checker, so I don't have to update "whole" project page, just UC's. :)
Of course, once I do that, I'll put it under links on HC's home page and vice versa. ;)

New Setup script generates Hash Checker scripts according to your system language, which made HashCheck pack way smaller! :)
I'll release it in a few days, untill I check how well it works on CentOS 5.5, Debian 5.0x, Fedora 13, Mint 9, OpenSuSE 11.x and, of course, Ubuntu 8.xx - 10.10.
Also, soon there will be new Translation file available for download, so you'll be able to have it in your language in some other release (3.9.x). :)

Made "Setup" script auto-detect user's language, and if it's other that german, english, spanish, greek, french or croatian, english is selected by default.
Also, I made small fix in detecting zenity versions (fixed potential problem in detecting some "strange" versions of zenity).
Hash Checker script has no changes what so ever. :)

Made this small script for you to test it, and use it. Using it, there's no need to open Hash Checker's site, just run the script, and it will do what's necessary.
Please, report back if something's wrong with it. Haven't had time to test it on all OSes i have. It will be a part of new Setup script in Hash Checker version 3.9. Thank you for testing it! :)

Made small fix to Update Checker, and discovered it doesn't work well on Fedora 13 (not sure for older versions) systems, because it lacks wget which is used to get current version file. :(

As I announced before few days, new version 3.8.5 has support for all GNU/Linux OSes. Well, at least I had no trouble with it on Debian 5.0x, OpenSuSE 11.x, Fedora 12 and Ubuntu 8.xx, 9.xx, 10.xx. If you find it not working on any (other) OS, please report it to me together with output from terminal using this command: zenity --version. If such problem occurs, I'll try to fix it ASAP. :)
