major changes:
dear user:
some might 'disapprove' of versions released so close together...to them i have a couple of things to say:
i will not 'conform' to the 'good-old-boy' establishment criteria of 1-2 releases per year. users and/or testers will not dictate how or when i release a new version.

if i have an improvement to the source code, no matter how insignificant, and i feel it will benefit the user, i may choose to release it. i do the work for free, i offer it for free, i have a right to release whenever and however i so choose. if you disagree with this, the answer is simple: don't download it.

best regards as always-
kranium
