In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Specialized UIs:

  • New File Discovery UI that allows you to search and filter for certain types of files. Works best with the Central Repository storing all of the hashes you've seen.
  • New Map viewer that uses either Bing (when online) or offline map tiles.
  • Communications UI shows country names for phone numbers and fixed bug in summary panel.
  • Fixed bugs in timeline filtering.
  • Refactored backend timeline filtering code based on The Sleuth Kit data model changes to remove JavaFX dependency.

Data Sources:

  • Added limited support for APFS disk images. Does not include encrypted volumes or ones that span multiple disks. Uses contribution to The Sleuth Kit from Black Bag Technologies.
  • New data source processor that parses “XRY File Exports”.

Content Viewers:

  • Added a new “Context” viewer to show where a file came from. Currently shows what message a file was attached to or what URL a file was downloaded from.
  • Added support to seek and change playback speed for videos in “Application” viewer.
  • Improved support for Unicode HTML files in “Application” viewer.
  • Added support for webp image files in “Application” viewer.

Ingest Modules:

  • Keyword Search module uses Decodetect statistical encoding detection for plain text files. Fixes issues with incorrect detection of Japanese files.
  • Embedded File Extractor module uses statistical analysis to determine encoding of file names in ZIP files. Fixes issues with ZIP files created on Windows Japanese computers.
  • Solr (Keyword Search module) now uses Japanese-specific tokenization using Kuromoji.
  • Fixed Shellbags module in RegRipper (used by Autopsy Recent Activity module) to fix parsing errors.
  • Plaso module no longer generates an error if enabled for non-disk image data sources.
  • Added support for message attachments that are stored as an external file system file. Expanded Email and Android modules to use this technique.


  • Fixed crashes by gstreamer when a video is selected.
  • Added initial capability to delete a data source from a case (excludes data in the CR).
  • Changed behavior of portable case menu item to automatically open the case and warn if it was already unpacked.
