>New versions of the EdSharp editor and FileDir file manager are available
>this holiday season!  Improvements are described below.
>EdSharp 2.9
>Fixed the Alternate Menu command (Alt+F10).  Fixed the Append from
>Clipboard command (Alt+7) saving duplicate copies of text.
>Modified how indentation levels are spoken, e.g., with the Query Indent
>command (Alt+I).  Instead of saying "0 levels," "1 level," "2 levels,"
>etc., EdSharp now says "Level 0," "Level 1," "Level 2," etc.  It then
>reads the line above with different indentation, which is typically a
>statement that introduced the current code block.
>Added a configuration option that determines the state of indent mode when
>a new document window is opened.  This mode may be toggled on a per-window
>basis (Alt+Shift+I).  This setting determines whether it is initially on
>or off when a file is opened.  The default is off, and may be changed via
>the Configuration Options dialog (Alt+Shift+C).
>Another approach to hearing indentation levels is a JAWS sound scheme
>contributed by Jim Homme.  You can install it by pressing JAWSKey+F2 and
>choosing Settings Packager.  In that program, press Control+O and enter
>Sounds4Stuff.zip.  Then press Alt+I to import the settings.
>The JAWS scripts for EdSharp now include several hotkeys for refining
>speech.  Press either JAWSKey+I or Windows+` (depending on which is
>easier) to toggle announcement of indentation changes.  Other combinations
>also use the grave accent key, found at the top left of the main part of a
>U.S. keyboard.  JAWSKey+` toggles between all and no punctuation.
>Control+` increases the speech rate by five percent, and Control+Shift+`
>decreases it.  Alt+` increases the volume by five percent, and Alt+Shift+`
>decreases it.
>Considerably improved Unicode support, including display of international
>characters.  Added the Yield Encoding command (Alt+Shift+Y) to convert all
>or selected text according to a particular character encoding.  If text
>from a file or the clipboard appears to be rendered improperly in EdSharp,
>you can tell it to base its interpretation on a different encoding:
>ASCII, Latin 1, UTF-7, UTF-8, UTF-16, UTF-32, or another encoding that you
>specify by its HTML name or code page number.  You can also choose a
>conversion where the Unicode number of each character is put on a seperate
>line.  This may be used to identify non-printing characters in the
>document.  The command replaces all or selected text, so put a copy in a
>new document window if you want to retain the original.
>FileDir 3.5
>Fixed the Alternate Menu command (Alt+F10).
>Added the Extract with Regular Expression command, Control+Shift+E.  This
>is similar to Append to Clipboard, Shift+A, except that you are prompted
>for a regular expression, and then only matches in tagged files are copied
>to the clipboard.
