Version 1.2
Released January 9, 2007

Fixed Unzip commands improperly applying ANSI encoding.  Added the Filter
Query command, Star (Shift+8), for checking the current sort order and
filter specification.  Improved scope and organization of documentation.

Extended pairs of Open and Go To commands.  Open commands preserve the
current directory view, including its tagged states, and then activate a
different directory view in another window.  Go To commands reuse the
current window, instead, for another directory view.  In the following
pairs of commands, the shifted version is a Go To command, requiring more
conscious effort due to a more destructive nature, since it discards the
current directory view.  This difference is similar to how Shift+Delete is
more destructive then Delete, since the shifted version does not permit
recovery from the recycle bin.  Enter opens a subfolder whereas
Shift+Enter goes to it.  Backspace opens the parent folder whereas
Shift+Backspace goes to it.  Backslash opens the root folder of the
current drive whereas Shift+Backslash goes to it.  As before, FileDir
checks if a view of the target directory already exists, and if so,
activates that window rather than creating another for the same directory.

Switched key assignments for the Quick commands to be more consistent with
the Open/Go To pattern.  Control+Q opens the Quick folder, whereas Shift+Q
creates a quick link to the current file or folder item.  Made the Escape
key duplicate Control+Q for opening the Quick folder even more easily.
Modified the Quick Link command to permit a new name for the shortcut when
initially created.

Added the Evaluate command, Control+E, which prompts for a mathematical
expression and then copies the result to the clipboard.  Standard
arithmetic operators may be used, as well as methods of the C# programming
language.  Added the Export Clipboard command, Alt+Shift+E, which prompts
for a new file name and then saves clipboard text to it.
