logoListary Portable 3.02.494 has been released. Listary is an excellent find-as-you-type search utility that makes searching items in large unmanageable lists of Windows applications a breeze. It works with items in Windows Explorer, Task Manager, Registry Editor, Windows Desktop, file Open/Save dialogs and other components. This release updates Listary to the latest version which uses a new settings format, which may ignore previous settings. It's packaged in Format so it can easily integrate with the Suite. Listary is freeware for personal use.

Listary is packaged for portable use with permission from Bopsoft.
