Any one know if this tool still is alive, or this is the last version we ever gonna see?

As toughmandave said, the ones @ Magic ISO don't give any answers back to your questions. I had a problem with registration (my name contains tildes and this leads to a bad registration process) and they never answered any of my requests. So I have to register the program with the temporary reg key they send you when you purchase the program.

It's a sad situation because IMHO the program is quite good at managing ISO files.

If you think that you'll ever need some kind of help with this program just don't buy it. Go for UltraISO for example.

Do not buy this product. The product works but once you buy it you cannot get any support. They just do not respond when you need help. The only support they have is on line and they flat do not respond after repeated requests. If you ever have to re-register your product you can't do it. You have to re-purchase the entire software package for $29.95. This is the second time with this problem and they just do not respond.

Decent collection of tools, although not perhaps up-to-the price asked (free alternatives are available).

However, ok for what it does.

NB! If you have .UIF files, you do NOT have to install/use MagicISO.

You can use the freeware converter uif2iso and then work with .iso file. ALL software accept standard .iso files, which cannot be said of the proprietary MagicIso Universal Image format (aka .UIF).

So, google for uif2iso for a free converter, if you only need to work with .uif files occasionally.

oups, looking good, nice surprise!
I had issues installing D-tools lite and getting it to work, but this one, worked without the need for a reboot. Has nice features, the only things i dislike a bit:
- after a right click you have to select something from the menu, else it won't go away even if you click elsewhere;
- i need to navigate a bit until i get to mount/unmount;

But I say: Great job!

Rich in features and user friendly interface.
Ability to directly edit files within the image files.
Context menu takes the user to the main application window to create image files which is ok. It would be nice to Lacks ability to be able to create image files from the context menu in windows explorer directly.
Ability to convert between ISO, BIN and Nero image file formats. I could not verify other file formats perhaps because I was using trial version.
Ability to create bootable cd's.
Overall I like this software as it helped me archive a lot of my old files in a compressed image file which would have otherwise taken up a lot of space by themselves.
I know there are some freeware softwares but I did not like them because they have very limited features which dont compare to MagicISO features.

Except that Nero does have unicode support now when burning ISOs.

No true Unicode support. I tried many other burning programs and they just don't support Unicode filenames:CDRWin,UltraISO,Nero. The only one supporting Unicode for real and that works is CopyToDVD. It's a shame that there is still no widespread full and true Unicode filenames support nowadays in burning programs.

I appreciate Magic ISO Maker, but this version 5.3 Build 229 is out since December 5th 2006... I have it since then and since then it is displayed on the download page, http://www.magiciso.com/download.htm

Hum, nice when time takes a break, thanks :)

A very capable app, but oddly, while it can convert and extract an ISO nine different ways, it cannot decompress one. Also, its Help file doesn't appear to have been updated in years.

Great image viewer.
Even if its a little unstable, it is the only viewer that contains every single image i've run into.
It also has the basic necesities of an image viewer like bin to iso or (something) to iso.
Its GUI is not the prettiest, but if ur looking for something that will do the job this is the right app.
