Version 1.4
Released January 12, 2007

Fixed display of Yield on Drive keyboard assignment on the Query Menu
(Control+Shift+Y).  Fixed key names being spoken by the optional JAWS
scripts when no MDI child window is active (e.g., saying "Control+O Open"
instead of just "Open").  Made FileDir more reliably become the active
window when launched.

FileDir has always been a "Multiple Document Interface" (MDI) application,
so any number of directory views may be opened, cycled among with
Control+Tab, or closed with Control+F4.  Now FileDir is also a "single
instance" application, so the desktop shortcut key, Alt+Control+F,
activates the same program when FileDir is found in memory, rather than
opening a new copy.  This and other new features (which were always a
goal) make FileDir an option as the default program for opening zip
archives.  The .zip extension may be associated with FileDir through the
standard dialogs of Windos Explorer or My Computer.

For added convenience, new choices in the FileDir program group are also
available to either set or clear such an association.  This setting also
causes FileDir to opan a view of a zip archive after downloading it with
Internet Explorer and choosing the Open button from the "Download
Complete" dialog.  Use the new Shift+W command to hear the titles of all
FileDir windows currently open.

The new Stamp command is executed with Exclamation Point (! or Shift+5).
It stamps tagged items with a different modification date and time.
FileDir prompts for numeric values for the year, month, day, hour, minute,
and second, defaulting to those of the current file or folder item.
