checksum 1.4

I am proud to announce the release of the latest and greatest checksum beta!

Changes since the last release..

~++ The hashing library has been rewritten to correctly handle UNICODE file
	names/paths. Now we can happily hash Russian, Japanese, Greek, anything!
	This works regardless of your current locale.

	The previous "upstream" changes were problematic, so I bit the bullet!

++  Support for LONG PATHS (beyond the Windows MAX_PATH limit). That's
	right! You can now hash files with paths as long as 32,767 characters!

+   Improved error handling in hashing library. Your .hash file will now
	correctly inform you of permission denied and other error states.

~   The convert_names preference (and convert_level) has been removed,
	with full UNICODE file name handling there is no need for it, ever!

~   The log folder will not open automatically if it is already open on your
	desktop.

~   The dialog that pops up if some of the hash files were invalid is now
	editable, so you can copy/paste the information somewhere / open the
	location, etc., if required.

	Note: This dialog respects your dialog_timeout preference, unless you
	click inside the editable area, which halts the timer.

*   A few other minor fixes and optimizations.


1.3.6.2 [previous beta]

*   Fixed an issue on TrueCrypt drives where certain ignored folders being
	set would halt checksum.

~   Improved handling of files where the user's Anti-Virus software has
	denied access to the file (or rather, presented it as a zero byte file)

~   Improved handling of fall-back where checksum was unable to write .hash
	files due to the location path exceeding the Windows PATH length
	limitation.


Available from the usual place. Enjoy!

for now..

Welcome to corz.org!

Since switching hosts (I hope you are alright, Ed! Wherever you are …) quite a few things seems to be wonky.

Juggling two energetic boys (of very different ages) on Coronavirus lockdown, I'm unlikely to have them all fixed any time soon. Mail me! to prioritise!
