Version 5.00, 3 March 2017
- The way that the directory scan is started as a background task has changed. The user guide has more details. Previous versions worked well on most servers, but not on all servers, and we were never able to resolve the problem. The new method should work on all servers. Unfortunately this change of direction required matched changes to the component and the plugin. If you use the optional Eyesite Plugin, you must upgrade (or uninstall) the plugin in order to upgrade to this version of the component.
- The auto-accept option now only applies to scans initiated by the plugin, not to scans initiated manually in the admin interface (which seems more logical).
- If you have the Eyesite Plugin installed and have entered your purchase ID on the About page, the About page now shows your subscription status.

Version 3.10, 15 October 2016
- A new search function on the history list allows you to search by date or for a specific filename.
- Previously, the Eyesite configuration parameters were lost when changing the component's ACL permissions. This has been fixed.
- This change also fixes the "Error decoding JSON data: Syntax error" that occurs with earlier versions of Eyesite in Joomla 3.6.3.
- New French translation.

Version 3.08, 17 January 2016

Version 3.00, 1 February 2014
- This is a major re-work with many new features, while preserving the same algorithms that have always worked so well. Launching the scanner using Cron is no longer supported - a new system plugin makes the job of running regular scans much easier than before. Please see the user guide for full details.
