Version : 2.55Pro 07.02.97: Added full support for XPK & PowerPacked files. If some file is packed with either XPK or PP, it will be unpacked and processed like it was never packed (needed: c:xfdDecrunch, Libs: xfdmaster.library, Libs:xpkmaster.library & the XPK compressor libs!) [I think you'll never need this but if you do so, then it's kinda handy to have it around :)] Also fixed some sound-module name parser bugs. Tried to clean up the code a bit, but I think that I should reorganize this baby a bit. Gee, I found a bug which caused ZoolDIZ fail to recognize .LZH! For safety reasons, _no diz_ will be added to EXE files. Changed all external command paths. They will be located in PFiles:ZoolDIZ/External_Comma- nds/ path. No C: nor SYS:C will be used. Therefore "Give names to External MODs" gadget in ZoolCON is obsolete! Version : 2.57Pro 11.02.97: Fixed some problems with the XPK system. Now xpk CRYPTED files will be ignored. I wrote completely new installation system for ZoolDIZ. Run it! Version : 2.58Pro 14.02.97: Fixed some PowerPacker support bugs. Optimized & cleaned up the code a lot=>Numerous little chan- ges, additions and bugfixes! Version : 2.59Pro 23.02.97: Some little fixes, PT-Modules changed to new form: [MOD] Name.........(Author) Version : 2.60Pro 06.03.97: Enchaced the Module-Authorname scanner a bit, Chanced [SID] to [PSID] & [MOD] to [PTMD] Version : 2.61Pro 25.03.97: Some internal changes, made a aminet-header/ footer system. Finally fixed that MORE?-prompt! Version : 2.62Pro 16.05.97: Came across with a stupid missing ')' char bug. Could cause errors in modulescan. Fixed. Version : 2.65Pro 01.12.97: Haa, delays do rule :).. anyway I downloaded this mp3info program and decided to add Mp1-3 support to ZoolDIZ. It took 2 hours, but I think is cer- tainly is worth it. And I changed the [PSID] & [PTMD] tags back to [SID] & [MOD]. I tested only mp2 & mp3. The mp support is a complete addition with possibilities to edit & modify & save the new author/song/album/year datas. BTW: The mp3info program needs ixemul.library! Now I just need to add MED support. Version : 2.66Pro 03.12.97: Made a simple ARJ support. Only plain File_id.diz. ZoolDIZ mainfile exceeds 100kb :)
