v3.60.0037 - 14.09.04 21:31
    + When searching for Contained Text, the statusbar now displays each 
      file's name just being scanned. As well, I gave some more air to 
      those CPU-straining routines, so that you can happily move around 
      the window while the processor sweats.
    % Minor low-impact code improvements.
    ! Minor rendering glitch concerning the interplay of Boxed Branches 
      and the vertical scrollbar. Fixed.
    ! File operation progress dialogs did not appear since v3.60.0032.
      Fixed.
    ! When you were fast, mean, and determined, you could generate an 
      error when you changed column sizes while the list was still loading 
      when Show Folder Sizes was enabled. Fixed.
    + When the app is calculating folder sizes (which can take a while 
      sometimes) it now tells you so in the status bar: "Getting folder 
      sizes... (ESC)".

v3.60.0040 - 16.09.04 14:00
  +++ Boolean search now supports parentheses of infinite nesting depth. 
      Ok, the maximum is 256 nesting levels, which should be sufficient 
      for most brains around. If you need more, tell me.
      Some syntax examples just to hint at the possibilities:
        Tarantino | Tarrantino                        1 level
        (Tarantino | Tarrantino) & Kill               2 levels
        (Tarantino | Tarrantino) & (Kill | Bill)      2 levels
        (Tarantino | Tarrantino) & (!Kill | !Bill)    2 levels
        (Tarantino | Tarrantino) & !(Kill | Bill)     2 levels
        !((Tarantino | Tarrantino) & (Kill | Bill))   3 levels
        ... it's a long way to 256 levels.
      Operator precedence is still: NOT > AND > OR, so the following two 
      search terms are equivalent:
        Quentin or not Kill and Bill
        Quentin or ((not Kill) and Bill)        
      Parentheses escaped by "\" are taken as part of the search term.
    + The NOT operator "!" can now as well be written " NOT " or " not ".
      Thanks to parentheses the NOT operator can now be attributed to 
      higher levels (not just to individual patterns): instead of "!cat 
      | !dog" you can now say "NOT (cat AND dog)" resp. "!(cat & dog)".
    * Improved timing resolution from 10 msec to 1 msec.
v3.60.0038 - 15.09.04 18:36
    - Removed the following keyboard shortcuts (added to v3.40.0081):
      Shift+F7: Move selected files to the last folder into which a file 
                was moved (using the File/Move To/Browse... command)
      Ctrl+F7:  Copy selected files to the last folder into which a file 
                was copied (using the File/Copy To/Browse... command)
      Ctrl+Shift+F7: Backup selected files to the last folder into which 
                a file was backupped (using the File/Backup To/Browse...
                command)
      Why: useless crap. You just cannot use a shortcut to a variable 
      command while it is invisible. Nobody has that kind of memory. 
      And, worse, when you move a file by accidentally pressing Ctrl+F7, 
      you might not know what happenend and have a hard time to find 
      your file again.

    * Enlarged memory of Name and Location combos from 16 to 32 items.
    + Find Files, Name & Location: added option "Inverted". If checked 
      the search will return everything that does not match your search 
      term. Does not work with RegExp.
    * Find Files interface 100 pixels wider.
v3.60.0041 - 16.09.04 19:35
    + Good news for the business community: added ISO Week as another 
      Date Format. Today is 2004-W38-4 (= 2004-Week38-Thursday).
    % Find Files including many subfolders again faster.
    % Find Files: another speed gain.

v3.60.0044 - 20.09.04 11:40
    + Drag'n'Drop Context Menu: added commands "Move Here to New 
      Subfolder..." and "Copy Here to New Subfolder...". Usage:
        - select any number of files 
        - right-drag them somewhere
        - click "Move (Copy) Here to New Subfolder..." in context menu 
        - dialog opens, enter new folder name, click OK 
        - this folder is now created under the dragged-to folder... 
        - ... and the selected files are moved (copied) into it
      This command works also in Find Results mode. In this mode the 
      operations are "rich", ie the relative folder structure of the 
      source is recreated in the target. Why: else same-named files from 
      different subfolders would want to overwrite each other in the 
      target. Note that "rich" operations are possible with files only, 
      not with folders -- logical when you think about it.

v3.60.0048 - 22.09.04 18:24
    * Rearranged the Drag'n'Drop Context Menu.
    * Info Panel/General File Info: removed buttons that copied file 
      info to clipboard. Instead you can do this via the file's context 
      menu or via the following new keyboard shortcuts.
    + New keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+I         Copy Compact File Info
    + New keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+I   Copy Extended File Info
v3.60.0045 - 22.09.04 10:33
    * Command "Copy/Move Here (Postfix Number)": changed internal 
      storage of the postfix format. It's more versatile now and needs one 
      INI key only:
        [General]
        PostfixNum=-00
      The default is "-00", but you can easily change it to "_000", 
      "(00)", etc. and there are no more limits to the number of digits. 
      When adding text bits ensure that literal alphanumerical signs are 
      escaped by "\", eg. to have a copy postfixed by " (ver 001)" the 
      pattern should be " (\v\e\r 000)".

v3.60.0049 - 26.09.04 12:57
    + Rename Special: added another ID3 tag to Filename command:
      MP3: ID3 tag to Filename (Track# - Title.mp3)
    + All "ID3 tag to Filename" templates are now configurable via INI 
      editing. The scheme is self-explanatory to advanced users (all 
      others shouldn't touch it anyway):
        [RenameID3toFilename]
        1=Artist - Title
        2=Track# - Title
        3=Track# - Artist - Title
        4=Artist - Album - Track# - Title
      The place holders "Artist", "Album", "Track#", and "Title" will be 
      replaced by the corresponding ID3 tag information. You can put 
      anything you want in place of " - " as long as it is legal in file 
      names with one exception: no comma is allowed anywhere in the 
      template!

v3.60.0051 - 27.09.04 13:58
    * Rename Special MP3:
      (1) Reduced the number of templates to 3 per direction. I know you 
      will cry for more sooner or later, but bear in mind that choice 
      means responsability or chaos.
      (2) Renamed INI section of "ID3 tag to Filename" templates to 
      "ID3toFilename".
      (3) "Track#" is now "Track".
      See examples here below...
    + Rename Special MP3: "Filename to ID3 tag" templates are now configurable via INI 
      editing. This is how it looks with the fabric defaults:
        [FilenameToID3]
        1=Artist - Title
        2=Track - Artist - Title
        3=Artist - Album - Track - Title
        [ID3toFilename]
        1=Artist - Title
        2=Track - Artist - Title
        3=Artist - Album - Track - Title
      The schemes are identical with one exception: with FilenameToID3 
      the templates and the filenames must use " - " as the separator, 
      whereas with ID3toFilename you are free to choose any other 
      separator (though it would be rather stupid to do so because " - " 
      appears to have become the standard on this planet).
      Note that FilenameToID3 cannot work as expected when e.g. an album 
      or song title contains " - ". So, the space-hyphen-space (" - ") 
      combination is to be avoided within terms, as this sequence has 
      special meaning as a field separator.      
    + Tree and List, Navigating with Keyboard: number keys on the NumPad 
      are now recognised by keyboard navigation.

    ! Display alignment issues: when you set display dpi to other than 
      100% some interface elements were partly overlapping each other. 
      Fixed.    
    + Backup: more progress information in the status bar.
    % MP3 preview is now more responsive. Recently I noticed that some 
      mp3 files took a bit longish to start playing in the preview. I 
      changed the mp3-rendering-engine and now everything is smoother than 
      it ever was. Yes, and it might even sound better!

    + Added advanced option (advanced means you'll have to edit the INI-
      file manually, so roll up your sleeves). By setting LaunchToFind 
      to 1 you can force TrackerV3 to focus Panel/Find Files/Name on 
      start-up (and if necessary open the panel and select the tabs).
        [Settings]
        LaunchToFind=1
    + Navigating the tree: new keyboard shortcuts allow direct moves 
      between sibling folders even if they are expanded (a sibling 
      folder is one that is in the same parent as the current folder).
        Ctrl+DownArrow: move down to next sibling.
        Ctrl+UpArrow:   move up to previous sibling.

        [Settings]
        ForgetHistory=1

        UrlEscape:    convert " " to "%20" etc.
        UrlUnescape:  convert "%20" to " " etc.
      "%20" is often found in the names of downloaded files, it is the 
      escape sequence for a space used in URLs. Apart from this there 
      are other escapes for unsafe characters in URLs, eg "%FC" for "ü". 
      Unsafe characters are those characters that may be altered during 
      transport across the internet. 
    ! Mouse Down Blow Up preview from thumbnails sometimes was partly 
      hidden by other interface elements. Fixed.
    ! Image Preview, JPEGs: the "Made" field (EXIF DateTimeOriginal) 
      sometimes showed the Last Modified Date (EXIF DateTime). Fixed.

        *.swf   (Macromedia Flash File Format)
      Of course, the Macromedia Flash Player Plugin must be installed on 
      your system.
    + Added two extensions to the set of previewed web formats:
        *.svg   (Scalable Vector Graphics)
        *.svgz  (Scalable Vector Graphics Compressed)
      Both can be previewed only if you have the free Adobe SVG Viewer 
      installed (http://www.adobe.com/svg/viewer/install/main.html).
    + Added extension *.tiff to the set of previewed images.

v3.60.0067 - 26.10.04 11:01
    ! Font Preview: if of a font family one member was installed, other 
      non-installed members sometimes have been marked as installed. 
      Fixed.
    + Menu Go/Go to...: now you can also paste a path/file name and jump 
      directly to a specific file in that path.
    + Mouse Down Blow Up: now, when you right-click a thumbnail it will 
      stay up until you hit any key or click it again. So you can have 
      a longer look at a pic without straining your fingers.
      Left-clicking a thumbnail remains as it was: the blow up will vanish 
      when you let loose of the mouse.

v3.60.0079 - 30.10.04 18:18
    * File size display: inserted a blank between number and unit suffix. 
    + File size unit "bytes" is now configurable. Edit this INI-key:
        [General]
        UnitByte=" bytes"
      Note the quotes, which are needed to preserve the leading blank.
    + Thumbnails: added "128 pixels" to the size options.
    ! "Track..." in shell context menu: did not work for Special Folders
      like "My documents", "Temporary Internet Files", "Recycled" etc.
      Fixed.
    ! Keyboard selection of panel tabs: the Preview and File View tab 
      when selected via keyboard (Ctrl+5/Ctrl+6 or Ctrl+Tab) did not 
      actually do the preview. Fixed.
v3.60.0074 - 29.10.04 18:00
    * Image Preview: the maximum previewable image size is now at least 
      as large as the maximum thumbable size. In other words: if it's 
      thumbable then it's previewable.
    + Image Preview: TIFF image info now tells you, whether the pic has 
      Intel (PC) or Motorola (Macinthosh) byte order.
v3.60.0069 - 27.10.04 13:54
    + Font preview: now you can activate/deactivate fonts on the fly by 
      simply clicking on the bold font name shown in the font preview's 
      info frame. Very comfortable for screen and print designers who 
      often need a bunch fonts for some one-time quick job, and do not 
      wish to go through the awkward font installation procedure 
      provided by Windows while cluttering up their fonts folder with 
      hundreds of never-again-used fonts.
      Note:
      - The font file to be activated can sit anywhere. Take care 
        however, that you do not move/delete it while it is activated, 
        else you can neither use it nor deactivate it.
      - An activated font file will NOT be copied to the Windows font 
        folder.
      - Deactivation does NOT delete the font file.
      - The activation/deactivation lasts only for the current 
        Windows session -- no files are moved, the registry is not 
        touched.
