Version 2.9
Released November 1, 2007

Fixed not being able to zip a subfolder of the root directory.

As before, Alt+Period tags all files, but not subfolders, in the current
directory view.  A new command, Alt+Shift+Period, tags duplicate files --
any file with the same content as a prior one in the list.  This may be
useful for deleting after downloading files, where some are the same
except for their name or date.

As before, Alt+P says the full path of the focused file or folder item,
and Alt+Shift+P copies it to the clipboard.  To copy its short path
instead, press the Tilde key (Shift plus the Grave Accent at the top left
of the main keyboard).  A short path contains no spaces and uses a suffix
of a tilde symbol (~) and a number to abbreviate file or folder names.
This may be useful when pasting into a command line, since more characters
and surrounding quotes are usually needed otherwise to specify a file.

Enhanced ways of choosing a directory for greater convenience and
efficiency.  The Current Windows command, F4, now lists names of open
directories without their preceding paths, thus making arrowing through
the list less verbose and permitting initial letter navigation to a
directory of interest.  Press Shift+F4 to hear what directories are open
without invoking the dialog to choose one from a listbox.

The dialog for choosing a directory target -- e.g., in the Open, Copy, or
Unzip commands -- now includes a row of buttons that present listboxes of
choices.  You can pick from one of three lists:  directories open in
current windows, those opened during this FileDir session, or those with
shortcuts in the Quick folder.  The buttons that invoke these lists each
have a hot key consisting of Alt plus the initial letter of the name
(Current, Recent, or Quick).  To add an item to the Quick list, press
Shift+Q when it has focus in a directory view.
