Free disc burning app ImgBurn updates to 2.5.1, makes adding files and folders even easier

ImgBurn is an excellent, free application for all kinds of burning tasks. Its developer Lightning UK has built a number of improvements into recent versions -- making an already good program even better.

Version 2.5.1 is now available for download and the changelog is a typically lengthy one. Two key alterations are worth noting. First, ImgBurn's disc layout editor view now includes an Explorer pane on top which makes creating compilations easier than ever. Prefer the old interface? Just click and disable the Explorer view.

Second, ImgBurn 2.5.1 -- like many of our other favorite apps including CCleaner -- now includes options to install the toolbar during setup. As always, just uncheck it if you don't want it. It's not as though the change has been snuck in -- it's listed in the changelog and talked about in the forums. Also worth noting: when I installed 2.5.1 -- both as an upgrade and from scratch -- I never saw the options or received the toolbar (or any other adware).

Can't really begrudge Lightning UK for wanting to earn revenue from such a great app (especially when it's optional), can we?

You can download ImgBurn 2.5.1 from the developer's website.
