Detagger: convert HTML to text and remove markup

Updates for Detagger

This page is used to record the update history of Detagger, with the most recent updates listed at the top of the page. In general updates are only available to registered users, who are notified via email as and when updates become available. However they may occasionally fail to get such messages (e.g. if they change address, of if their mail server has temporary problems).

In between updates "micro-releases" may occur with bug fixes and a few new features. Such releases are listed here, and may be downloaded from the same location as the last major release (effectively that file is "refreshed").

If you're a registered user, and you feel you've missed an update notification, simply email contact us with details.

Updates to help files and documentation may be listed here. Where these are free to all, direct download links are provided
