Release Notes: Startup overhead reduced, moved to mime-magic instead of magic.mime to match RH distribution's comprehensive file, choice dialog now shows up under the mouse, updated launcher.map included, fixed emacs wrapper bug.
Release Notes: The Launcher now has a complete configuration GUI. A couple small bugs have been fixed, including one that broke some netscape commands. Parent-directory-of-file may now be specified for handlers.
Release Notes: New --compressed option for peeking inside compressed files, some default mapfile additions, a file command output handling bugfix, and more mundane keybindings in the GUI. Included (optional) "emacsw" wrapper to emacs and emacsclient in case emacs users want more efficient behavior for editing.
Release Notes: Brand new Manpage for all your quick reference needs, and reworked around a semi-bug which caused Netscape -remote calls to reject file/URL parameters due to strict quoting requirements.
Release Notes: New --showtypes option allows the Launcher to be used as a commandline MIME file typer, --nowait, --all, and --default options can now be set in the config file and squashed bug handling executable-but-unreadable files.
Release Notes: added --default option to surpress user queries, no longer pass quoted URL's (makes Netscape complain)
Release Notes: added --type option to force the mimetype for all files on the commandline, fixed embedded space handling again (hopefully for good), added typeahead to the GUI listbox
Release Notes: Fixed the handling of filenames with embedded spaces and made other minor tweaks. Added a Makefile for easier installation and generality.
Release Notes: This is a complete rewrite of a personal piece of software I've been using day in and day out for about 6 months. The rewrite completes the original feature set I was aiming for and hopefully brings the code to releasable/maintainable quality. This is the first public announcement of the Launcher, though it has been posted for a while. This new version introduces a new architecture, as well as several new features and capabilities. It is NOT configfile-compatible with the old version.
