GDROM Explorer v1.6: not dead yet!

After almost a year, yeah I agree, it is legit to think so... To be honest, this version comes with a lot a new stuff. I wanted to slightly transform this tool into something you would like to use. So in this new version you can get many details about the IP.BIN: list of internal libraries and flags used, MR images inside, track list from the TOC, etc. I tried to focus on the user experience and ease users' wills by supporting the Drag'n Drop for extracting files. Yeah, wasn't that simple! .Net is a nice framework but coolest UI stuff we want are mostly only available in native code... and I did not really want to make this program a compilation of hack!

[GDROM Explorer v1.6 Changelog]
- Added: a nice IP.BIN viewer (game settings, images, libraries and a lot more).
- Added: Primary Volume Descriptor viewer.
- Added: MR image conversion and extraction.
- Added: File extraction via Drag'n Drop operation.
- Added: Status bar to show the program last event.
- Added: Padus DiscJuggler image (.CDI) support.
- Added: Disc track extraction.
- Added: Settings menu for mostly the file associations.
- Added: Auto-load NAOMI DES key
- Fixed: IP.BIN parsing errors.
- Fixed: Progress bar flickering.
- Fixed: Support data/data images.
- Fixed: Memory leakages.
- Fixed: Typos here and there
- Improved: UI colors, remove and add some icons.
- Improved: Try reading image even if IP.BIN missing.
- Improved: Error handling for non-compliant images.
- Improved: Explicit error messages upon IP.BIN parsing errors.
- Improved: Code robustness.
- Testing: Add unit tests for IP.BIN parsing.

Anyway, here is what you are looking for (or not!): GDROM Explorer v1.6
