Version 1.5.5 Version 1.5.4
  • Release Date: Jun 9, 2014
  • Download(s):
  • Issue 209:

    2 Bugs:
    1 on drag drop, numfiles was not initialised. Could countain random 
    number, not actual files dragged and dropped
    max number of jobs was not being incremented on dragdrop.
    now, if you dragdrop and the file list goes > max number of jobs, we add 
    50 more rows to filelist.
    note: file list is initially limited to 100 jobs because of the memory 
    overhead of maintaining arrays of the filenames, command lines, options 
    settings, etc
    enhancement: added hint for file list showing number of files in queue 
    when cursor not over a filename
