Version 2.2
Released February 21, 2007

Modified the installer so that assignment of the system-wide hot key for
launching FileDir, Alt+Control+F, is optional.  Uncheck the appropriate
setting to prevent the assignment.  A FileDir shortcut on the Windows
desktop is still created.

Adjusted the optional JAWS scripts so that the top item in a directory
view is reliably read by the SayLine command, JAWSKey+UpArrow.  This
command is also more succinct since it no longer announces the position of
the current item in the list, e.g., saying "eleven of 27."  If such
information is desired, press the dedicated JAWS command for position
information, Alt+Delete.  The same query is performed by FileDir's Percent
Through command, Shift+5 (%).

Made the dialog for choosing a folder (e.g., when copying or moving
files), return to the edit box if an invalid path is entered and you
choose not to create it.  To cancel the dialog instead of specifying
another path, press Escape.

Since FileDir is a Multiple Document Interface (MDI) application,
Control+Tab cycles to the next open window, Control+Shift+Tab does the
reverse, and Control+F4 closes the current window.  As before, F4 is an
enhancement to pick an open window from a standard ListBox.  Additionally,
the Windows Open command, Shift+W, lets you hear the titles of all windows
without changing focus.  Duplicate keys have now been added to support
FileDir operations from the numeric keypad:  Alt+RightArrow to go to the
next window, Alt+LeftArrow to go to the previous one, and Alt+NumPad5 to
say available windows.
