Coming up: FRen

I have always been in search of open source tools for file/folder renaming purpose. There was a time when I created one for my own, but that ran in console mode. I googled many time to find good tools but most of them are shareware/adware/paid. Those which I found good/useful were overly complex in user interface. Like this guy - he has done good job and has wonderful ideas. But the tool is so buggy that after few uses I found my songs turned into documents and the videos turned into songs and so on. I find it very useful to lose my documents. Very risky!! Though its in beta, but I find it too cluttered and confusing to be released as beta.

So, I decided to begin from scratch and spin the wheel again. I am following the ideas of Ken's Rename tool only, but highly robust.

Please suggest ideas if you have faced challenges in using such tools and what would you like it to do. Hint: Check Ken's Rename tool.
