checksum 1.5.7.0

Another Beta release of checksum is available.

NOTE: to get version update notifications for beta releases, enable the beta_channel preference.

Changes..

+   Added search + verify command to checksum's default installed Explorer
	context commands. It's that handy! (see 1.5.6.3 changes)

	If you want this NOW, either uninstall+reinstall checksum (all your
	settings will remain intact) or else merge the sample registry file
	found here: http://corz.org/windows/software/checksum/files/

++  Directory Exclude Masks. You can now specify one or more directories
	which you would like to exclude from the hash creation process, using
	standard file masks (?,*). The "x" switch, followed by a set of exclude
	masks in braces, enables this functionality. Separate individual masks
    with a comma.

	For example, you want to create a root hash, but not hash any
	directories who's names begin with "Foo", or end with "Bar", or starts
	with "baz" AND ends "qux", do..

		checksum.exe cr1x(foo*,*bar,baz*qux) "D:\MyDir"

*   Fixed long path handling in search+verify function - Of course Explorer
	is sending short paths. Doh!


Full details in the itstory.

You can grab this latest checksum (and simple checksum) beta from the usual place.

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!
