v2.7.1.2

Is there anywhere (reputable) that still has a 2.7.1.2 installer? 64bit is needed.
I've installed the new v3 and would like to revert, but there seems to be no means by which to do this without the old installer.

Cheers, and thanks!

Yes, is this possible please? I have very limited screen space on this portable—and while I certainly appreciate your continued development, I've found v.3's extra graphic elements make it harder for me to use. Thanks!

Here are several old versions, from my HD and elsewhere:https://www.mediafire.com/folder/9i706rxm4ion0/BRU

Check to make sure you are downloading an "x64" version. Check the digital signature, too, to make sure no one (including me) has tampered with the installer.

Thanks so much! I've just downloaded 2.7.1.3 (which I think was the last version I used before v.3). Here's a screenshot of it running on my notebook:

...and here's one of v.3:

As you can see, v2 has literally twice as much space to see files and folders.

Don't get me wrong—I'm a long-time BRU fan (like, years). But in comparison to v2, I'm afraid I find v3 practically unusable.

Was it really necessary to add a separate title bar below the window's existing one? And an address bar, which we did fine without for so long (with the file "tree" at the left, and the great Ctrl+J "jump" command)?

And adding move/copy functions, as though BRU were now a file manager? And what does "Move/Copy Parts" even mean?

I'm sure some people find the new functions useful. If they were collapsible, though, we could regain some file-list real estate and actually see the stuff we want to work on. :?|

Anyway, OV, thanks again for your trouble. Sometimes, clearly, "less is more". Cheers, A.

Hello, yes, next update the controls will be collapsible to create more space.

Thanks for being so responsive. I think we all realize that software development is an ongoing process, and that the best products come from interaction between developers and users... Cheers, mate!

Hey There!

Thanks for posting these old versions! But I really wanted the old portable no install version as well...

I found a site with all the old versions, but they were super shady, so I went through my old archives and found a portable / no install version.

The zip file contains both 32 and 64-bit versions and instructions. I have no idea to what extent it works on Windows 10.

Hope this helps.
