My goal is to officially release FileDir 1.0 on New Year's Day.  This is
Beta 0.95, released December 30, 2006.


Fixed prompt to confirm filter in empty folder.  Fixed Go to Parent Folder
command, Backspace, not working in empty folder.  Fixed Copy, Cut, Paste,
and Undo commands in optional JAWS scripts.

Modified Recent Shortcuts command, Alt+R, to show a maximum of 100
shortcuts.  This improves load speed of the list box, since the Windows
"Recent" special folder can contain many more shortcuts.  Enhanced dialog
for choosing a folder so that it prompts whether to create one if the path
entered is not found.  This makes it convenient to copy, move, or unzip
files to a new folder with a single command.

Added the Delete Recycle Now command, Control+D, and Delete Now Command,
Control+Shift+D, for deleting a single file (but not folder) without a
confirmation dialog.  Added the Path List to Clipboard command,
Control+Shift+P, for copying to clipboard all file paths under the current
folder item.  Added Say Folder command, Control+Apostrophe, to say full
path of the current directory view, and Control+Shift+Apostrophe to copy
it to the clipboard.  Added Percent Through command, Shift+5 (percent
sign), to say the current position, item count, and percent through  the
directory list.

Use the New Folder command, Control+N, to create a new folder on disk.
Press Control+Shift+N to create a new copy of the current file or folder
item within the same directory.  It will be assigned a similar name except
for a numeric suffix that makes it unique, e.g., plan_01.doc for a copy of
plan.doc, or plan_02.doc for the second copy.  This can be useful when you
want to preserve an original version of a file before editing a copy.

Added nine commands on the Window menu to quickly open or go to an
existing view on a drive.  Drives A through I are associated with the
digits 1 through 9.  For example, press Alt+1 to go to Drive A or Alt+3 to
go to Drive C.

 Updated the documentation, F1, so that it accurately reflects the feature
set and keyboard assignments that evolved during the beta development
process.  Further explanations will respond to user feedback.
