Version 1.1
Released January 4, 2007

Fixed Come Up Level command, Comma or Backspace, not working in a zip
archive view.  Made the New Folder command, Control+N, recognize when the
new folder should be added as an item in the current directory view.
Silenced verbalization of the command name when toggling tagged state of
the current item with Spacebar.  Made FileDir remember more values from
the previous session, including those last used for the Copy, Find in
Files, FTP, Go To, Jump, Keywords, Move, Open, Unzip, and Zip commands.

Added the Context Menu command, Shift+F10, for choosing an action to
perform on the current file based on those available for its
type/extension in the Windows registry.  Added the Send To Menu,
Control+F10, for choosing among SendTo shortcuts -- installed by various
applications -- to perform on the current or tagged files.

Added the capability to "put" or upload files to a directory on an FTP
server, and to "get" or download from there.  For private directories, a
user name and password may be stored in FileDir configuration settings
with the Options command, Alt+O.  Note that these are stored in a plain
text .ini file, so should not be considered secure against untrusted uses
of the computer.  If you prefer to be prompted for this information
instead, you can leave those settings blank.

Use the FTP Put command, Shift+F, to upload files.  FileDir prompts for an
FTP directory.  If the value entered does not contain the :// sequence of
characters, FileDir adds an FTP:// prefix and a / suffix for more
convenient typing.  For example, a value of
would become
If you include the :// sequence of a protocol, however, FileDir accepts
the value verbatim -- without making changes.  The URL is remembered as
the default value for the next FTP command.

The opposite command is Get FTP, Shift+G, which downloads files from a
remote directory.  FileDir presents a multiple selection list box with all
file names it found in that directory.  The files selected will be
downloaded to the current directory view.  Any existing files with the
same names are replaced and sent to the recycle bin according to the
Recycle setting, Alt+Shift+R (on by default).
