Change Log – – Version 5.32.0 – Release Date September 2017
- A new user-friendly interface for configuring Checks has been added.
- Tamper Checks, Debugging Checks, and Shelf Life Checks are now configured using the new Checks sub-tab. They can no longer be configured as extended attributes in the Instrumentation sub-tab.
- A Check, when configured in the user interface, can now target multiple methods. Checks that are configured by in-code attributes only target the method they annotate.
- Obfuscation of apps made with the Unity game engine is now supported. Please see the User Guide for details.
- Supported app platforms: PC, Mac, and Linux Standalone, Android, iOS, and Windows Store (UWP).
- Supported scripting backends: .NET and Mono.
- Obfuscation of .NET Core 2.0 and .NET Standard 2.0 assemblies is now supported.
- Improved support for Xamarin code and XAML so fewer renaming exclusions are required.
- Custom assembly load paths can now be configured. This allows Dotfuscator CE to find assemblies located in non-standard locations.
- Registered users now have the ability to automatically decode obfuscated stack traces.
- The User Guide has been updated to be easier to read and use.
- The command line interface can now be used in a specialized Dotfuscator Command Prompt, preventing the need to find the executable and add it to your path in a standard Windows command prompt.
- You can access the prompt from within the standalone user interface by going to the Tools menu and selecting Dotfuscator Command Prompt. If you have a Dotfuscator config file loaded when you do this, the prompt will start in the directory of that config file.
- The command line interface will now only display usage help if requested (via the /? or /?? arguments, or a lack of arguments) or if the arguments provided are invalid. Other errors no longer display usage help.
- The user interface now abbreviates the paths of input assemblies in tree views. The full paths are now provided by tool tips.
- Dotfuscator now switches to the Results page after a build. This behavior can be disabled via a checkbox on the Results page.
- Sample projects included with Dotfuscator have been updated.
- In order to continually improve quality, collecting basic system configuration is no longer optional. Users can still opt out of sharing additional information such as feature usage and configuration information.
- No personally identifiable information is ever collected.
- Newer Microsoft-authored assemblies will now be automatically treated as artifacts when present in a package, as certain older assemblies were.
- The command line interface will now show a renaming summary at the end of the build.
- InsertTamperCheckAttribute and InsertShelfLifeAttribute have been renamed to TamperCheckAttribute and ShelfLifeCheckAttribute. The old names remain for backwards compatibility.
- Corrected an issue where Dotfuscator added a reference to
mscorlibto assemblies that did not reference it before processing
- Corrected issues with Dotfuscator and Lucidator decoding obfuscated stack traces.
- Corrected an issue where Dotfuscator fails to resolve assembly references if a directory is inaccessible.
- Corrected an issue where Dotfuscator does not detect tools included with certain Windows Kits in the Windows 10 Creators Update.
- Fixed other minor issues.
