v4.00.0009 - 06.04.05 13:28
    + Tab Strips coloring: no more INI-editing (cf. v3.60.0029). Now all 
      tab strips take the same color scheme as user-defined in 
      Configuration/Colors (F9).
    + Toolbar can be hidden now: menu View/Show Toolbar.
    - Shortcut removal/replacement! These commands are not frequent 
      enough to merit one of those rare delicious shortcuts (for which I 
      have other plans deep in my mind...):
      Menu Edit/Show Folder Sizes -> no shortcut anymore (was Shift+F5)
      Menu Edit/Refresh Thumbs Cache -> now Ctrl+Shift+F8 (was Ctrl+F5)
    * Moved the Refresh commands from the Edit to the View menu.
    + Auto-refresh of file list now is blocked while you are renaming a 
      file.
    + Double-clicking the splitters does minimize/maximize them again ;)

Ahhh, the help file... every programmer's nightmare. I always update it before I release an official version. Which will be soon... sigh

v4.00.0010 - 07.04.05 13:27
    + Now each tab can have its own "Home", defined by a browse/find 
      location and mode, and the usual list settings.
      - To set (or update) the current tab's home click "Set Home"
        (menu View/Browsing Tabs). 
      - To go to the current tab's home click "Go Home"
        (menu View/Browsing Tabs) or simply press F6.
      - You cannot unset a home because it's not necessary
        (if you don't want a home, don't go home).
      Homes are remembered between sessions, and can be set 
      independently of the tab being named or not.
      A new tab starts homeless.
      Apart from the possibility to click "Set Home" home tabs behave 
      100% like homeless tabs.

    + Toolbar: added Home icon. Click to go to the current tab's home. 
      The tooltip shows where home is.
    + Now "File Info Tips" (hovering over file icon in file list) show 
      the path of the file if in Find mode (Win2K and WinXP only).
    * "Keep Particular Characters..." and "Search and Replace..." (menu 
      File/Rename Special) now do not change the extension (incl. the 
      dot) but just the file title (or base), that's everything but the 
      extension.

      .html$>.htm\ = change extensions .html (but not eg .HTML) to .htm

      selection, a warning message is displayed giving you the option to 
      not open the tab.

    * Revision of handling of unavailable paths: no more message boxes, 
      but simply a greyed out file list. Just select any tree folder 
      to put the tab back to real life (or leave it in ghost state until 
      its target is available again).
    ! Crashed on huge file copy jobs due to some experimental change in 
      v4.00.0016. Fixed by removing the experiment. I told you it's 
      BETA, didn't I?

few bugs...

* Revision of handling of unavailable paths: no more message boxes,
but simply a greyed out file list
Been a silent fan for a while but this prompted me to post... :twisted:
As soon as I loaded the latest beta, the %profile%\history folder
and sunfolders are no longer available!
-Removed entire tracker,ini, even the find file templates.dat -- no go!
Removed beta, applied 'release', History folders are available!

Exact msg is:
'curently not available:'
..'Docs n settings'\*user*\local settings\history\history.ie5\<path to subfolders'

-Speaking of path and %profile%:
Long time bug that accompanied all prev and current beta/releases.
-Favorites>special folders>temp folder
Always defaults to my current drive! it does not find the sys temp or the profile temp!
Reason is likely to be.. this is partitioned while logged into "d:"(winxp)
And "c:" (WinME) but D: is a logical drive in an extended partition!

A while ago on another computer it behaved the same..
While dual-booting to D:/win2K(c/win98) top menu temp pointed the drive itself(d:) to be temp folder.
It is definitely NOT using the standard PATH statement in env variables
but somehow looking at the drive structure differently.

Quick addition:
If logged to main partition C:. the 'temp' bug does not apply.
The favorites menu finds it.
However another dirive letter seems to be the trouble.
I'm not sure if it's only applicable to extended partitions or anything other than C: ??
(All other special folders are being recognised just fine!?)

As for the 'history' bug, it's definitely in 'v4.00.0039'--
Just reproduced it on C: as well.

P.S:
While trying to figure out the 'history' enigma from D:
Tracker started pointing out more dirs as 'currently not available'.
Ended up flagging "MyComputer" as not available :?
..And --crashed..
Faulting application trackerv3.exe, version 4.0.0.39,
faulting module oleaut32.dll, version 5.1.2600.2180,
fault address 0x00004874

Thanks for breaking your silence!
The history folder will be back in the next BETA, and the TEMP folder will be the right one, too.
