Software update: version 5.18.1 released.

This version address issues detected after launching support of Btrfs file system. Particularly, when RAID volume was formatted with Btrfs and contained millions of files, this caused significant performance penalty because of high level of internal storage layout segmentation. With this update was applied different approach of handling this kind of storage that saved much resource and made it work much faster.

We have also noticed that UFS Explorer did not support Meta-Group Descriptor feature of Ext3/Ext4 file systems. Starting of version 5.18.1 this feature is also supported in all software editions.

This update is considered as "recommended", especially to users of software version 5.18.
