Beta 0.93
Released December 20, 2006

Strengthened error checking and reporting.  Fixed FileDir not producing
enhanced speech messages through the Window-Eyes API.  Made the Filter
command, Control+F, indicate if no items match a filter just entered.

Made the Copy or Move commands, Shift+C or Shift+M, speak the comparison
with a target having the same name rather than relying on a screen reader
to say that part of the confirmation dialog.  Changed the technique of
finding drives so that the Open Drive command, Alt+Shift+O, should
identify all available ones (feedback sought).

Pressing Enter on a Quick link shortcut that is a folder will now open it
in FileDir rather than Windows Explorer.  Pressing Enter on a zip archive
will open it as if it is a folder.  This lets you conveniently examine the
contents of a zip archive.

The new Zip command, Shift+Z, adds the current or tagged items to a zip
archive.  The Unzip command, Shift+U, unarchives the current or tagged
items.  The Unzip Test command, Control+U, checks whether the current item
is a valid zip archive.

Some commands work with a copy of a zipped item that is unarchived to a
temporary folder as needed.  This lets you use the What command, Question
Mark, to identify the content of a file without unzipping the archive that
contains it.  The Send to Word Processor or Text Editor commands,
Control+W or Control+T, also work in this way.

Added the List Files command, Alt+L, to list file items but not folder
items in the current directory view.  Similarly, Alt+Y sums the sizes of
file but not folder items.  The Yield on Drive command has been reassigned
to Alt+Shift+Y, providing the total size and space free on the current

Added Mail command, Control+M, which starts a new email message with the
current or tagged files as attachments.
