# New DirectX SDK and Total Commander
There are two new software releases that are important to me. I know about them from Twitter (yet another good reason to join microblogging activity :)
First one is DirectX SDK August 2009. Updates relate mostly to DirectX 11, but hey, there was no new SDK version for a long time!
(I've just discovered there are changes in the error handling system that are not backward compatible. To compile my code I had to change #include <dxerr9.h> to <dxerr.h>, link with file dxerr.lib instead of dxerr9.lib and rename function calls DXGetErrorString9 and DXGetErrorDescription9 to DXGetErrorString and DXGetErrorDescription.)
Second new release is Total Commander 7.5 FINAL. I can't see any revolutionary changes (despite the new, Vista-like behavior of the current directory bar), but that's a good news as Total Commander is already great.
