    F OS/2 4.70 / F Win32 2.70 / F Linux 1.70 / F AIX 1.67 (November 1st, 2002)

    This is the concatenation of all the beta x.61 to x.6f from 10/15/01 to 11/01/02:
    Nov 1st, 2002  (beta *.6f)
    ! urlget trap when using ftp url address; but no problem with http url address.
      This is a side effect of the many code changes of version *.69/*.6a
      to support more than one tcpip port.
    Oct 28th, 2002  (beta *.6e)
    ! (Linux) F may hung at startup if a second instance is started. error msg:
      "msgid=-1: fmsg reception disabled. Check f.log (^F12)"
      the correction is to remove the error message and only update the f.log
    ! (Linux) Using Alt-l to list mountable directories. Able to automount on making
      a selection, but attempting to unmount a directory (alt-d) failed with rc=1
    ! (W95/98) unable to start an exe or script from F on Windows98
      if exe or script in path with blank. (comspec is command.com and not cmd.exe)
      side effect of previous x.6d version
    ! FFP, F is unable to list all entries if F server sending list
      of file/directory with one name with control character (like 0x1A)
      (same correction as previously done for FTP in x.6c)
    ! FTP, memberlist of a MVS host PDS does not get displayed.
      side effect of previous FTP client code change in x.6a
    ! @^U (update-bg) of local directory c:\tmp to remote ffpx:c:\tmp
      is rejected with abnormal "circular request"
    ! Enter key of a zip/sfx inside a zip directory, abnormally displayed as binary
      the zip/sfx file, rather than to open a new window with zip/sfx files list.
    ! missing [COMMON] tag before USE_NEW_SESSION keyword in fsample.cfg
      WARNING: you need to make the same change in your own f.cfg
    * ^H (C procedure tagging) add an error msg if try to search the word under cursor
      while no tagging file defined in f.cfg; rather than to say word not found.
    * Add support of "]" and "&" characters in file incremental search.
      refer to online help about $incremental for list of supported characters.
    * F12 (E/I) toggle exact case/ignore case search, to be the same global setting
      for viewer and editor to avoid confusion of the status.
    Sep  3rd, 2002  (beta *.6d)
    ! ^@Z  background zip, abnormally expect to have external zip.exe
      in same path as the filemanager exe,
      creating pb if F installed in a path with blank character.
    ! (OS/2,  Linux) start of a exe with blank in path is not working.
    ! (win32, Linux) SF4 on a rexx command with blank in path is not working.
    * ^@G background grep of marked file inside zip, explicitely report that not supported.
    * (win32) F4, SF4 function keys modified
      to execute in current session (F4) or start in new session(SF4)
      the application associated by Windows to current pointed data file.
      This is equivalent to the previous "/" or "start /" command executed
      on the command line of F.
    Jul 27th, 2002  (beta *.6c)
    ! FTP, (win32) F is unable to list all entries if server sending list
      of file/directory with one name with control character (like 0x1A)
    ! FTP, connection failure after a ftp timeout if try to delete a directory.
      there is no automatic retry of the connection. (I hope this is last condition)
    ! FTP unable to delete a FTP directory, side effect data capture in beta *.6b
    Jul 21st, 2002  (beta *.6b)
    ! (OS/2 or Win32) FTP delete directory on Aix/Unix FTP server, error RC = 550
      side effect of x.6a previous beta version FTP code change.
    ! (OS/2) trap F with copy/paste system clipboard, side effect previous version 4.6a
    ! @A/^A abnormal date/time change when only +/-a option
    !    ^A f option doesn't change correctly date/time for win32 version.
    ! trap F, when view C file with tab characters, if new parameter TAB_SIZE=2 in f.cfg
    ! FTP, other conditions of connection failure after a ftp timeout.
      (complete the correction made in beta *.5h and *.66)
    ! delete marked files is not stopped on first delete error,
      so error not presented on status line.
    Jul  1st, 2002  (beta *.6a)
    ! copy/paste from system clipboard truncation by window size on command line
      rather than to truncate to max command line string of 255 characters.
    ! (win32, Linux) memory leak if many copy/paste via system clipboard.
    ! (OS/2) copy marked files to other window, the Alt+Ins key doesn't work anymore
      side effect of code change in previous beta *.69
    ! Display empty file if while in viewer mode try to select in listbox
      an already open edit file with blank characters in path or name.

      Add a short description of functionnality limitation in online help.
    ! FWS, many corrections in multi threaded log function handling the fws.log
      specific to F Web server. that may be the source of the not understood trap
      of FWS in OS/2.
    * "\ " "go to root directory" command functionnality
      changed for FTP/FFP windows as detailed in online help.
    + Add new parameters in config files, refer to fsample.cfg for details
    May  21th, 2002  (beta *.69)
    ! iso vfs, F trap if too many files in the VFS file.
    ! file annotations display is removed after F12 (refresh)
      on a window generated from mark command.
    ! lst vfs, no file annotations display if list file with wildcard characters.
    ! (Win32) rc=38 send_fmsg, message lost in f.log when more than
      one instance of fwin32 running at the same time, and first is closed.
      any generated messages are unable to be handled by the second instance.
    ! FFP, abnormal display as empty file, if try to access a file that is
      read protected on the remote FFP server.
      eg: v ffp0:C:\WINNT\system32\config\software.LOG
    ! FFP, on ffp server, the logged ffp client IP adress may be incorrect
      if the ffp client has more than one tcpip port.
    ! ffplist command doesn't show all ffp connections when test with VMWARE hosts.
      (different ffp clients are reporting same hostname, even if different ip address)
    ! (Win32) wrong time stamp when display FTP remote file (abnormal UTC conversion)
    ! FTPlogin to Host VM is failing  since  at least VM version 3A0,
      that changed the format of the date string from "9/25/96" to "2002-03-20"
    * lst vfs, support relative path specifications, as updated in online help.
    * lst vfs, accept to refresh such file window.
    * remove detailed list of background copy marked files in f.log (minimise f.log size)
    * add one line summary of foreground copy marked files in f.log
    + Editor: F2 key used to execute commands listed in  USER_FILEEXT_COMMAND
      to have same functionnality as in viewer mode.
    Apr   6th, 2002  (beta *.68)
    ! F trap in GetFileLine in internal viewer.
    ! qmail doesn't display subject when listing of some received email.
      add debug code in qmail for investigation, no correction yet.
    ! Backward search doesn't work in HexEdit mode.
    Feb  25th, 2002  (beta *.67) only Windows
    ! fnews update command doesn't get any new article from news server
      if previously last retrieved article is too old for the server.
      The code change is to retrieve from the oldest available article on server.
    ! Ctrl+M in viewer, doesn't point to correct matching parenthese

      (eg: dir -s /p*.h  for child)
    ! FWS, Userid and Password abnormally requested by http F Web Server
      even if web directory is not protected in f.cfg.
      This is a side effect of FWS changes in beta x.65
    ! unable to define a path with blank characters in trusers file
      to authorised FTP/FFP access to such directories. (eg: trusers.smp)
    * (linux) accept remote zip request from FFP user
      as already supported for OS/2 and Windows.
      refer to Ctl+Alt+Z command online help.
    + fmail, add new option MAIL_SMTP_AFTER_POP in f.cfg
      refer to comments in f.cfg for details.
    Dec  31th, 2001  (beta *.65)
    ! Fmail, mail sent from F and read by Oulook Express, may be displayed
      as empty by Outlook Express, even if all text received and saved in mailbox file
      of Outlook Express. Bypass in Outlook Express is to access the source of
      the message: righ mouse => properties => details => message source.
    ! F12 (refresh) on file manager window doesn't refresh current active window
      in a specific scenario where the file window is created from USER_DIRECTORIES
      keyword in f.cfg for a path with blank but no quote delimiter; eg:
      USER_DIRECTORIES=C:\Documents and Settings
    ! The index file of the Forte Agent's outbox (outbox.idx) is abnormally
      identified as a tersed file and F try to unterse it automatically.
      (Forte Agent is a News reader application)
      Note: I am adding a reference to terse action in the online help of F
      as function supported for a while (with external terse.exe) but never documented.
    ! (win32) Ctrl+Break is killing F without any warning since beta version 2.5h
      side effect of changes related to dir zip:/ on sfx file.
    ! (win32) Ctrl+C and Ctrl+Break not detected by child process
      started from F (either with F4,SF4, or from command line).
    ! FWS error in reported filesize, make the html web browser (IE or Netscape)
      to not display correctly the pointed web page.
      The condition is to have the web page with multiple occurences
      of two special FWS keywords like "<$fws_cnt >" "<$fws_date >"
    ! fchange command modify the date and time of input file even if no change done.
    ! No error message on F status line if error detected while accessing an archive VFS
      extracted from a zip file. In fact the error is displayed but cleared
      too quickly to be able to be read.
    ! (linux) Alt+L is systematically mounting a device even if already mounted.
    * ZIP VFS, identify the directory entries inside a zip file, as was already done
      for other archive VFS since version x.5h, and don't allow to edit or view
      such a directory entry.
    * FTP client, modify the code related to MKD ftp command to not systematically
      issue the MKD from root to new path to be created.
      Change done only to minimise errors in fftp.log even if no functionnal error.
    + FWS, add new FWS keywords inside an html page to report directory list.
      refer to online  help for details.
      refer to comments in f.cfg for details.
    + FWS, add new WEB_SERVER_MIME in f.cfg to be able to add/modify mime type
      associated to file extension.
    Dec  10th, 2001  (beta *.64)
    ! FTP, bad FTP transfer from F FTP client to standard FTP OS/2 server
      no problem for other Unix or Windows FTP servers.
      The signature of the problem is the presence of 100 extra bytes
      at the head of the file saved on server.
    ! FTP, MKD ftp commands abnormally sent to FTP server
      when copy local file to remote FTP server,
      even if F knows target directory already exist.
      This is creating error msg in fftp.log when restricted access to parent directory.
    ! FTP, passive mode (-PASV) doesn't work if F-FTP server is running on
      a machine with more than one IP interface.
      Warning: Problem still alive for F linux/aix FTP client.
               bypass don't use passive mode.
    * ^SF5 [qmail]  support toggle of delete key in email listbox
      to complete the functionnality added with beta *.62
    * Correctly support STRIP_TRAILING_BLANKS=no  in f.cfg
      Before the default was to always strip the trailing blanks from edited file
      now the default is to not strip them, as documented in f.cfg
    Nov  25th, 2001  (beta *.63)
    ! (Win32) Hexedit, the last incomplete 64k segment gets not processed
      correctly for a dataset of length greater than 4MBytes;
      and remaining bytes are displayed as null.
    ! (OS/2) @F1, doesn't report TVFS info as error in last beta x.62 version.
      Take the opportunity to also report the TVFS info
      related to TVFS link point even if pointed entry is not
      the link point directory itself but a file in the directory structure.
    * ^SF5 [qmail] modified to display number or pending mails and total size
      before to ask the user to list them or not.
      This is required if a lot off pending mails, but only want
      to know if any, without waiting for details in the generated listbox.
      Add also the possibility to sort the list of e-mails in generated listbox.
      (use of @O key combination) to ease the delete operation on a group of e-mails.
    * [qmail all] new "all" parameter added to query the number
      of pending e-mails on all the pop servers defined in f.cfg
    Nov  11th, 2001  (beta *.62)
    ! Alt-1 on a line pointing to a fully qualified file name with quotes
      (because blank characters) like exemple below, doesn't work.
      "C:\Program Files\Netscape\Users\default\prefs.js"
    ! descript.ion file in target directory not updated
      if copy a file (with file description) on a FAT directory.
    ! Alt-1 abnormally modified the change flag (the '*' on bottom left)
      of pointed file for specific scenario in editor mode:
      1-in the referencing line, modify a character.
      2-use Alt-1 on this same line.
      3-the pointed file is abnormally flagged as changed
        and the change in the referencing line is lost.
      Note that there is no problem is the cursor is moved to another
      line between step-1 and -2.
    ! (OS/2) again tvfs file info (@F1) trap with F hung
      similar and probably same type of problem as previous one
      reported and partially solved in version 4.58
    ! on viewer if backward search word under cursor with F7, then
      no "searching ..."  string. There is no pb with forward search (F8)
    * Alt-z (zip one entry) modified to have same behaviour as Ctrl-z:
      if pointed entry is a directory, then integrate the directory name
      and not only the data inside the subdirectory.
    * Alt-z and Ctrl-z modified to integrate empty directories.
    * for FWS web server function, add the 3 mime types associated
      to following file extensions:
      .123 (for Lotus-123), .prz  for (Lotus-Freelance), .lwp  (for Lotus-WordPro)
      Note that there is no function to display the list of harcoded mime types
      supported by the FWS function,
      and there is no function to add new entry in configuration file.
    * Ctrl-K on ffp marked files now backup files by adding ".bak"
      to current filename+extension and don't remove anymore the extension.
      This is done to have same behaviour for remote FFP file
      as already done for local files since beta version x.5a
    * ^SF5 [qmail] is modified to be able to delete the e-mails on the server
      directly from the listbox with the del key. online help updated.
      (easier to use than the fmail delete command)
    * Alt+C for local copy of a file now detects when target is same as source
      and report adequate error message,
      rather than to report a sharing violation problem.
    * Alt+C don't ask anymore for directory/file when target
      is a ftp or ffp directory obtained with Alt+Ins
    Oct  21th, 2001  (beta *.61)
    ! Alt-1 in process buffer on the output of compilation error message,
      doesn't work when error message have only a filename without full path.
      the code change in F is to memorise the path from where is started
      the command (use of the ':' command prefix) to be able to use it
      as relative path when required with Alt-1.
    * modify mask command to create a new file window rather than
      to modify current one. To have same behaviour as Crtl-w
    * reject refresh command (PF12) on a file window created by mask command
      this is required to avoid error during refresh.
    * Add pcdd command similar to ^SF8 to change directory of process buffer.

    F OS/2 4.60 / F Win32 2.60 / F Linux/AIX 1.5h (Oct 14th, 2001)

    This is the concatenation of all the beta x.51 to x.60 from 08/19/00 to 10/14/01:
    Oct  14th, 2001  (beta *.60)
    ! dir -s /p*.xml with  /p = "c:\program files\xxx" doesn't correctly scan
      all subdirectories because of blank character in the path.
    ! (os2) trap F when using fpinit to view a file.
      this is a side effect of beta version 4.5h
    ! Ctrl-C doesn't copy marked empty directories from zip VFS.
      this is a side effect of beta version 4.5f
    ! fcomp /M doesn't work if one of the marked files contain "#r" characters.
    ! (Win32) .cl doesn't work  (exe name prefixed by a dot to capture standard output)
      if the exe is found with a path with blank characters.
      this is a side effect of beta version 2.5h
    * fmail command modified to not reject the sending of a  file
      when one target address is detected as invalid by smtp server.
      The invalid address is logged in f.log but the mail is sent
      to other valid recipients.
    * Ctrl+Backspace on archive VFS window to be supported like normal file window.
      to create a new file window for parent directory. (as documented in online help)
    * replace warning that is not explicit when accessing dir inside some VFS:
      "Inside TAR/GZIP/ISO/RAR directory, operation not supported"
      replaced by:
      "No subdir access, go to all files below in the archive VFS (flat model)"
    Sept 29th, 2001  (beta *.5h)
    ! hexdump / /n did not work with file if blank character in file name.
    ! @V in archive file, still ask for file extension association
      @V should go directly to viewer without any question on file extension association.
    ! Trap F when fmail to send a mail with accented character as
      last character of Subject string.  (eg: Subject: ciné)
    ! (Windows and Linux) file annotations not displayed for FFP accessed files
      if FFP server is not Unix OS.
    ! "@K *" command to comment out marked lines is not using the correct delimiters
      for file of following extensions (h, cpp, hpp, cxx, hxx)
      This is a side effect of previous beta version adding DEFAULT_SYNTAX_EXTENSION keyword.
    ! dir (vfs):/ KO if directory/file with blank in space
    ! Ring list (F5, Ctrl-Up): some VFS archive full path name not displayed.
    ! (OS/2, Win32) cannot delete directory with +rsh attribute
    ! f.his (f history file) not saved/created if F started from read only dir.
      so f.his now created in same path as f.log (FLOGPATH if defined)
    ! convert zip2exe -> the new created exe file can't be shown as zip vfs,
      even a dir zip:/ doesn't work.
    ! (OS/2) split function for file with name > 8.3 to diskettes doesn't work.
      can't create such a name on the disk.
    ! (OS/2) Bad performance of a started command from viewer or editor windows
      pointing to a local file, if previous access to a tvfs or remote nfs directory.
    ! (Win32) problem to access UNC shared resource, dir \\i8000\share gives nothing.
    ! (Win32/linux) F hung after copy file on timeout ftp access.

    ! (Win32) wrong time stamp when display zip from FFP Windows cient compared to an OS/2 client.
    ! Alt+1 on ffp:u: the pointed line is invalid on target file
      if file previously accessed.
    ! Alt+1 on ffp:u: doesn't move to correct line if ffp:u: is prefixed with blank
    ! Copy file (Alt-C): timestamp not preserved for some archive VFS.
    ! Ctrl-Enter on subdir with blank in name. followed by Refresh (F12) :
      get root of disk instead of directory content refresh.
    ! dir zip:/ on sfx generated file, gives a duplicated path in window list (F5)
    ! RPM VFS detect invalid rpm file for kernel-source-2.2.17-21mdk.i586.rpm (18MB)
      because the offset of the cpio.gz part is after the expected max offset.
    ! TAR VFS display missing files for cdrtools-1.1.10.tar
      because contains link files that were not properly handled.
    ! Alt+1 don't work for a line like "perso_f1.txt(35) 1_10489 text here"
      Alt+1 on the line gives
      RC FindFirstFile=2 for (d:\tmp\perso_f1.txt). faeditc.c(2028)
      Problem seems due to presence of digits ('1_10489') at start of text
      No problem is no leading digits.
    ! unable to view archive files via FTP (except zip) because get in ascii and not binary.
    * (Win32) hexedit error on Windows NT when file size greater than 4MB.
      hexedit error: 8585216 bytes read vs. 8585251 bytes file size for ...
    * (Win32) remove requirement to prefix REXX cmd by "rexx" on command line.
    * Avoid redundant output of which/awhich commands when path of current
      filemanager window is defined in the PATH (explicitely or via '.')
    * Reject explicitely non supported function on VFS archives added by beta x.5g
      non supported functions are:
      o edit   file inside VFS (with internal editor of F, but OK with external editor)
      o delete file inside VFS
      o copy   to these VFS   (but copy from is working properly)
      o update files from VFS directory. (probably function to be added later)
    + Add support for ISO VFS (CD image) in all supported OS.
      No need for external executable/DLL/.so.
      Press Enter on .iso file, or associate with command 'dir iso:/'.
      Enter or Alt-V to view individual file, or use Alt-C, Ctrl-C to copy files.
