What's New in This Release:
Added "Open recent" menu.
Added "Convert to file" and "Convert to program" items to File menu.
Added "New text file" to the File menu.
Fixed "Alternate open" so it only asks for one command, and then runs that command on all selected files.
Updating is now much faster, and it works well with slow network file systems like sshfs.
No longer opens CVS and SCCS directories when Shift-click or Meta-click.
Fixed bug so default drop action is Copy when dragging from partition A to partition B displayed inside a window displaying partition A.
Updated to recognize latest options in /etc/fstab when searching for shortcuts.
