InjectURL: Release history
InjectURL was originally released on August 28, 1999.
15 November 1999:
- Toolbar now has a right-click menu which allows choosing between "flat" buttons and the older 3-D look. (The flat toolbar did not display properly on systems with COMCTL32.DLL version older than 4.70.
- Version number is now 2.16 (bugfix release)
12 November 1999:
- ESC key can now abort process
- Minor bug fixes
- Documentation fixes
- Version number is now 2.15 (bugfix release)
18 September 1999:
- Automatic installation and deinstallation (setup.exe)
- Added an option to delay automatic inject (in miliseconds). This should help fix the roblem when InjectURL tries to access a file that the browser hasn't yet finished saving to disk.
- Added LOG feature to ease debugging. Please see file "whatsnew.txt" for details on using this feature.
- Completely rearranged the Options dialog box to make the grouping more logical. This invalidates all the screenshots in the Help file (sorry!).
- Added mechanism to prevent another instance of the program starting. If you try to launch InjectURL twice, the previously running instance will pop up, and the newly executed instance will automatically close.
- Version number is now 2.14
21 September 1999:
- What was automatic behavior before is now an option: when injecting URLs manually, you can specify if the program should try to automagically determine the local file name into which the URL will be injected. The program tries to guess the filename based on the URL. If the URL changes, so will the suggested filename, and the results are intended to mimic the way Netscape Navigator forms filenames when saving files to local disk. In Opions dialog box, Files tab, click the "If filename is blank, suggest filename" checkbox.
Normally, the suggested filename is only displayed if such file actually exists. You can, however, tell the program to always display the suggested filename, by using the "even if a file by that name does not exist" checkbox.
NOTE: Automatic filename suggestion only works when you use the "Inject URL manually" feature - because when you do that, the program may know the URL, but it cannt know, in advance, which file you want to modify. But when an URL is being injected automatically (with Folder Monitoring on) automatic filename suggestion is always turned OFF, because the program DOES know the name of the file in advance.
- Version number is now 2.08
20 September 1999:
- Font in some edit boxes (in Options and Inject dialog boxes) may have been incorrect. It's still unclear to me why, but in this release I have added code to use the correct font (which in any case should be the system's default font for dialog boxes, MS Sans Serif 10.) I cannot be sure this alleviates the problem, since I cann't reproduce it on my system. (Thanks to Nick Reid for bringing this to my attention.)
- Two bugs fixed: One prevented the program from using certain filenames with spaces in their names; the other caused the backup file name to be misformed, and in result prevented InjectURL from correctly backing up the files it modified. (Many thanks to John Taylor for spotting these problems and alerting me!)
- Version number is now 2.07
