NEW: Right clicking a container allows you
to quickly start shortcuts from inside using the new Container Shortcuts
menu (also work with Folded and Shrunken containers). This is a great way to
quickly launch shortcuts.
NEW: Clicking the lock button that appears
when trying to move containers and shortcuts when the workspace is locked
for editing, will now unlock the workspace for 10 seconds before locking it
again ('lock.wav' found in the program's directory will be played). This
replaces the previous behavior and allows you to quickly make changes even
when the workspace is locked.
NEW: When trying to move or resize locked
containers, or shortcuts inside locked containers, the container border will
flash in red, in addition to showing the 'lock button'.

an RSS news feed.

to finish. In addition to that, the workspace remains responsive when
refreshing all RSS feeds using the menu command or pressing [F11].
CHANGE: The workspace will unhide (undock)
like other windows/toolbars. You can click the edge of the screen to quickly
show the workspace, or hover with the mouse for half a second over the
workspace border without moving it away.
CHANGE: [F5] is now used to refresh news
feeds and <Shift>+<F5> is used to refresh shortcuts.
CHANGE: Removed menu command Delay before
CHANGE: Removed menu command Collapse before
launch (the workspace will always collapse before launching a shortcut).

one. To add new shortcuts to containers, either drag shortcuts to the
container from the Windows Explorer or create new shortcuts on the workspace
and drag them from there.
CHANGE: Faster startup speed.
CHANGE: New Plastic Gray theme (removed
older Plastic Gray buttons).
CHANGE: Removed wallpaper: Bluesteps.jpg

still accessible even when the workspace is locked.

a folded or a shrunken container it will unfold or expand. Select using

expand shrunken containers.
CHANGE: Ability to resize folded containers
is no longer available: This may produce unexpected results.

by minimum height and width. The container border will flash in red when
resized to a value smaller than the minimum.
