bullet Ability to monitor module entrypoints (like DllMain) looking for module initialization failures.

bullet C++ function name undecorating to provide human readable C++ function prototypes including function names, return types, and parameter types.

bullet Ability to save a module's session to a text report file for easy viewing in any text viewer.

bullet Ability to save a module's session to a comma separated value (CSV) file for easy importing into other applications.

bullet Ability to save a snapshot of an entire module session to an image file, which can be loaded by Dependency Walker at a later time on any computer.

bullet Module profiling to detect dynamic dependencies, child processes, thread activity, and exceptions. Child processes can also be profiled for their dependencies.

bullet Ability to control what file extensions Dependency Walker will add the "View Dependencies" menu item to a file's context menu in explorer.

bullet Added hotkeys to help match imports with exports, and modules in the list view with modules in the tree view. Also added hotkeys to locate the previous, next, or original instance of a module in the tree view.
