Windows Firewall Control v.6.2.0.0 (24.06.2020)

- Improved: Remote addresses content is now expanding to fill the available space in
Properties dialog so that more content can be displayed.
- Fixed: Properties dialog is not displayed anymore if two or more Windows services
have the same Display Name.
- Fixed: The service name for svchost.exe notifications is detected only for the Windows
services that are already running when WFC service starts. If a Windows service is started
after, the notification will not detect the Windows service that triggered the notification.
- Fixed: Unhandled exception is logged if certain files are missing from the
installation folder.
- Fixed: When editing a rule details in the Notification dialog, the rule name
can be set as one or several empty spaces.
- Fixed: Properties dialog can't apply changes to a rule if the path of the rule
is not accessible or not found. This limitation was removed. Also the tooltip was
updated since a rule with red text does not always mean the file is not found, it can also
mean the file is not accessible (file located in a folder of another user account,
encrypted location, etc).
- Fixed: In Notification dialog the text (Yes, No, Not valid) under Signed property is
not localized.
- Removed: The x button from text boxes that is clearing their content.

Hi too bad we need windows firewall enabled for this.:rolleyes:
In summary, this is a Windows firewall skin, or assisting software. It does not improve performance but simplifies operation.
The primary advantage is that it does not interfere with Windows updates or the behavior of other security software.

What's new in version 6.3.0.0 (27.06.2020)

- Improved: Detecting invalid rules is now made at service level instead of UI level,
meaning that the rules defined for files that are not accessible are not detected
anymore as invalid.
- Fixed: Connections Log loading time increased after last update if Security log
contains older entries for processes that are not running anymore.

Simplewall or tinywall better
I think the more choices, the better. 👍
