No official announcement is made regarding v2.1.8 yet.

But it's listen as 'Current release' on the Download page @  http://cue.tools/wiki/CUETools_Download

Thanks for the answer. I have portable version. To update I have to move all contents from zip in the folder of previous version?

@c72578
built 2.1.8 and marked the release as 'Stable'.
I excluded the word 'Stable' when I added the link to the wiki's download page (http://cue.tools/wiki/CUETools_Download). A beta or nightly version isn't offered prior to release so testing begins with the release itself. In the past a release was tagged 'for testing purposes' and not declared "Stable" until tested by the users without reports of major issues. I consider 2.1.8 a 'test build' (for now).

Thanks for the answer. I have portable version. To update I have to move all contents from zip in the folder of previous version?
I suggest starting fresh (copy contents of zip to a new folder) and create a new settings file (\CUE Tools\settings.txt). Note: The encoder and decoder settings are being stored differently now.

Can I copy and past previous settings.txt after installed new version?

As I said, the encoder and decoder settings are being stored differently now. I haven't fully tested 2.1.8 using an old settings file to see if settings.txt is properly updated.

Ok, I preferred a clean installation with last hotfix. Tried to split an image with zero problems. :) Thanks Korth! ;)
