Program history: -------------------------------------- (20.11.95) - First public release (24.11.95) - Second release - compiled with 68000 codes (sorry for previous 040 version... :( (07.01.96) - From now MaxManager is MUI3+ requireable! - Balancing groups added (taste it in main or config window) - Preferences and config files moved to "Config" subdir - External support for SleepIcon added - Fixed bug in MUI notification in EditEntry window causing MM to break if you pressed enter in Description field - Progress window is now log window, storing history of your session. You can open the log window in any time from the menu. You can save the log or even print it. - Added user definable patterns (see prefs and PatternMatch) - I/O functions use now buffered OS calls, which is expected to increase the I/O performance. - MoveFiles shouldn't refuse to move files on the disk any more. - Switchable file list header (Note: overprinting is caused by MUI's bug, not mine...) - Hunt pattern may be automatically expanded by MM with #? at the begining and the end of the pattern to make hunting easier (of course you may switch this off) - Added "List only" feature for Hunt causing all matching files to be logged. - MM takes usage of AppWindow, so you can drop any WB icon on the file list to easily change the work directory - Preferences files are moved to "Config" subdirectory - SleepIcon added (change "Config/" if you don't like mine. - User lists attached to the "Uploader" etc. strings - Added menu "Settings" and its contents (MM prefs call and MUI prefs call) - MM checks now if total #of files in filebase is correct (doesn't check the count of separate sections, yet) - BubbleHelps available (28.01.96) - EditSection/Apply now works - If there're deleted files in the base, the Statistics will show you the amount of bytes taking by those files - Patterns are now saved in the config file... - Hunt - GoInLeft, GoInRight buttons allowing you to select the listview you want to use for future operation of found file. - Sections are now sorted by name. Unfortunately you can't switch back to old sorting (by sections' number) for now, but I'll fix this soon. - Prefs: Saving Sections-2-Drawers-Attachmens will fix changes made to this part of configuration. There's no undo! Clicking "Cancel" will cancel all changes except those made in the Sections-2-Drawers part. - Optimizer: RemoveWithDownCount and RemoveOldFiles optimizers added - Rename added - Import: Add-And-Move added. - Fixed bug causing MM not to find files being located in default file path - Local Optimizer added. Enter section and click "Optimize" to mess in one section only. - SIDE EFFECT: Reenter the section with deleted files to get them grouped together. (19.04.96) - ARexx port implemented. - While looking for disk file availability, the DefaultSectionPath was ommited. Fixed. - Log window now shares program menus with main. - Bubble Helps are now switchable. - Added shortcuts to the Hunt panel (refer docs) - Right listview slider moved to the right. - It's now possible to match file comments as well in PatternMatch while processing file database as well as diskfiles - Added shortcuts to the PatternMatch shortcuts (refer manual for details) - MatchPattern sometimes ignores 1st element on the list. No more. - Preferences layout changed a bit. - Removed unnecessary parts of code (program is relatively shorted). - Added FlushDeleted menu item, allowing you to remove (permanently!) deleted files without saving whole filebase. - Fixed serious bug in internal list handling routine, causes MaxManager, to report errors after removing last added files. It causes edit errors and other nice things... Fixed of course. - Improved Prefs/AddNewNew routine. No more well-known and annoying "« Another node config »:" rubbish. - Saving program preferences saves Sections2DrawersAttachments as well - Load/ReloadAttachments now clears all attachments before it starts to read new. - Added Prefs/Paths/Attachments/Clr All button allowing you to remove all attachments with one click. - Small compiler error causing "Error saving... file may be corrupted" message to appear every time (even all files were saved correctly) worked around now. (19.05.97) - Released in uncrippled form. Register if you like it!
