BitCurator 0.7.0 Now Available

The latest release of the BitCurator environment (0.7.0) is now available on our Release page ( We’re continuing to provide download options on our existing host and via iBiblio. Direct links and MD5 checksums can be found on the Release page.

This release includes the following updates:

  • File Export tab added to GUI. This new tab runs fiwalk and uses the output to generate a tree-style hierachy of the file system in a new window. This allows you to safely navigate through directory and file contents and export file items without having to mount the file system.
  • Removes bugs affecting the operation of the fiwalk and annotation tabs in the BitCurator GUI.
  • Updates The Sleuth Kit to 4.1.3.
  • Now includes ClamTK, a graphical front-end to the Clam virus scanner. ClamTK simplifies the process of scanning mounted file systems and regular directory contents.

Our updated Quickstart guide can be found in the Documentation folder on the BitCurator environment desktop.

As with previous releases, this environment is built on a 64-bit version of Ubuntu and may be unstable on certain 32-bit host operating systems, or host hardware with less than 4GB of RAM.
