      files when the search pattern contained the characters  "_" or "~". 
      Fixed.

   :) TrackerV3 is now > 1MB.
  +++ Icon preview reloaded: after a complete rewrite of that module you can 
      now preview ALL icons contained in an icon resource at one click, 
      including 32-bit (RGB with Alpha channel) XP-icons up to 128x128 
      pixels. Pretty involved stuff that would not have been possible 
      without the superb http://www.vbaccelerator.com by Steve McMahon!
    + Thumbnails can now deal with large 32-bit icons.  
    + Info panel sizing: right-clicking on the horizontal splitter bar now 
      switches between maximum and minimum panel height. If the panel is 
      currently at an intermediate height it will switch to minimum height.
    * Backup/Backup To...: Before, when you canceled the "Save Backup Log As" 
      the whole backup operation was canceled. Now only the logging is skipped 
      but the backup is performed.
    ! File Context Menu/Backup To...: when backupping from find results, 
      backup did not always create the necessary subfolders in the target 
      destination. Fixed.

Code: Select all

  +++ major new feature
    + new feature
    * changed feature
    % improved performance
    ! fixed minor bug
  !!! fixed major bug

v3.50.0122 - 04.08.04 15:02
    + File Find: now fully supports the wildcard "?" that stands for exactly 
      one char. Also any ANDed subpatterns of a logical search phrase can now 
      have wildcards * (none or more chars) and ? (exactly one char).
      - *.???:  finds all files with a 3-char extension
      - ????.* or ??????.* and mo*: finds all files with a 4 char title OR (a 
        6-char title AND starting with "mo")
  +++ File Find: added Boolean NOT operator, written with the symbol "!" 
      directly in front of the pattern:
      - !cat:   finds all files that do not contain the sequence "cat"
      - !cat*:  finds all files that do not start with the sequence "cat"
      - !*cat:  finds all files that do not end with the sequence "cat"
      - !*.???: finds all files that have not a 3-char extension
      Of course, the NOT operator is freely combinable with the OR and AND 
      operators, so TrackerV3 now fully supports Boolean search logic.
      - m* and !*.jpg: finds all non-jpg-files that start with "m"
      More examples will be published on the web site...
v3.50.0121 - 04.08.04 10:21
    ! Deleting a folder in tree view: when you answered the confirmation 
      dialog with "No", the tree node was yet removed from the tree view 
      (although the folder was not deleted in reality). Fixed.

    * Age units are now correctly pluralized: "1 year", "2 years".
v3.50.0113 - 22.07.04 11:18
    + Thumbs cache got smarter: whenever an image file is updated, the cache 
      is immediately updated too. Note: since this gain in smartness involves 
      a change in the cache makeup, your previous cache files will all be 
      rewritten.
    + While processing thumbs the status bar message now shows
      [thumb number] of [total thumb number].
    * Age now shows seconds as well.

v3.50.0111 - 21.07.04 14:55
    + Configuration/Thumbs: Thumbnail width and height is now mildly 
      configurable. You can choose between 96 and 72 pixels for each 
      dimension. When you work a lot with digital photos, which usually have a 
      4:3 proportion, a setting of width=96 and height=72 is perfect for you: 
      more visible rows in the file list, and about 25% smaller cache files.
      Note, that the cache files for each of the now 4 possible thumb sizes 
      are kept independently of each other: thus you can switch between 
      thumbnail sizes in a blink -- with Explorer, you have to reboot Windows 
      to do that!
    + Thumbs mode is now remembered between sessions.      
    ! Minor alignment bug when renaming bold tree nodes. Fixed.
    * When trying to jump to a favorite folder that is hidden or in a hidden 
      path, and you opted to not show hidden folders, you'll get a message now 
      that tells you so.
    Drag'n'Drop Context Menu Tree:
    * Renamed "Create Folder Structure Here" to "Create Branche(s) Here".
    + Added "Create Folder(s) Here": copies all top level folders in the 
      dropped packet to the drop target without the contained files. So it's 
      the flat version of "Create Branche(s) Here". Very handy feature to quickly
      create some folders by simply drag-dropping them to their birth-place.

v3.50.0109 - 20.07.04 13:58
    + Added some smart flexibility to the thumb display: the file list's row 
      height will only be increased IF there are any thumbnails in that list.
v3.50.0108 - 19.07.04 14:17
    + Added *.PSD format to image preview. PSD files (Photoshop Documents) 
      can include embedded thumbnail previews, and TrackerV3 learned how to 
      show them. Of course, *.PSD is now also part of TrackerV3's own thumbnail 
      preview.
      Note that with PSD files, you can preview only the embedded thumbnail, 
      not the original sized image.
v3.50.0107 - 19.07.04 10:21
    * Moved the "[Show] Thumbnails" menu command to the View/Show Columns 
      submenu, because it belongs there. This menu also opens when you right-
      click the column headers.

    ! Font Preview: Crashed on certain *.FON files. Fixed.

v3.50.0101 - 12.07.04 20:10
    ! File rename, Tree: when renaming a file with a name too long to fit in 
      TV3's window, the edit box cursor would go off the screen. Fixed.

* Favorites handling rewritten for internal reasons. In consequence your
topmost favorite will be missing from the list. Just re-add it manually
(CTRL+B).
Looks like you'll have to add this note to the readme or download page for the next official version, as people may report it as a bug (which it is).
test everything. hold on to the good.

    + Now hidden items are shown with ghosted icons. "Show hidden files and 
      folders" (Configuration/General) must be checked of course, to see the 
      ghosts.
v3.50.0096 - 04.07.04 13:36
    ! When a removable media (CD, DVD) was removed while it was current 
      tree folder and Auto-Refresh was on, that media's volume name was 
      "eternally" hooked to the now empty drive-letter. Fixed.
    * Hilited Folder: now with border around hilite box, looks better.

    + Configuration/General: "Show hidden files and folders".
      Before, hidden system folders like "System Volume Information" and 
      "Recycler" or files like "C:\boot.ini" or "desktop.ini" were 
      invariably shown although you rarely need to see them. What's more, 
      operations on these items are often disallowed by the system or 
      dangerous.
      Now, these items are not shown by default unless you check "Show 
      hidden files and folders".
      If hidden, those items won't also be found by a search nor listed in 
      reports.
