Integrity is an app for webmasters that checks the links and images on your site. Feed Integrity your homepage URL and it will follow internal links to find all of your pages, checking each link and reporting the server response code for each. Information can be exported in a number of formats including a .dot visualisation which can be opened in a number of graphing applications. Version 5 is as fast as ever and brings Integrity into line with Scrutiny 5's many fixes and enhancements. On features - I intend Integrity to remain free and to remain a website link checker, no more no less. Note that Scrutiny provides more advanced features such as managing many sites, authentication, sitemaps and SEO checks.

What is new in version 5.0.1:
Major improvements to the data storage and engine meaning that even small sites will crawl more quickly and large sites will crawl very much more quickly without slowing down or losing responsiveness
When stop button is pressed, all open threads are abandoned, and then recreated if 'continue' is pressed. Gives a much better user experience
Routines for 'by page' view re-written to avoid apparent hanging at the end of the crawl of a big site
Adds new settings to Preferences, allows setting of some limits - default to 200,000 links. Offering the option of limiting the crawl of a large site (maybe better achieved by using blacklist / whitelist rules) but also a safety valve to prevent crashing due to running out of resources when crawling very large sites
If starting crawl within a directory, crawl is limited to that directory, ie crawl will go down a directory structure but not up. This matches users' expectations. Previously, crawl extended to all pages in the same domain
Blacklist and whitelist boxes replaced by a more user-friendly table of rules (existing data will be presented in the new way)
Moves 'check links on custom error pages' to settings rather than global preferences
Increases maximum number of threads from 30 to 40 (will improve crawling for some sites) with the default now 12 rather than 7. Extreme left (labelled 'fewer') is still a single thread.
