    Still looks basic, but modern. I like what they've done.

    Thanks for the heads-up. The new version looks a lot less vexatious than the older ones. As far as I can tell, it doesn't reset the layout when you pick an ISO file, either, as the old one would do. Good stuff!

    IMPORTANT: Once again Windows Defender (starting with definition update 1.269.1834.0) is erroneously reporting that Rufus 3.1 may contain Trojan:Win32/Plutruption!ARXep. We have reported this to Microsoft, who have confirmed that this is yet another false positive and have updated their definitions to clear it. If you are affected, you are invited to re-download Rufus 3.1, as we have put a new version online that shouldn't trigger the antivirus.
