        h) Bug fix: Corrected incorrect thumbnail scaling factors when extracting EXIF data

           overlapping rearrangement window and toolbar is dragged.
        c) Bug fix: Issue error messages if there would be too many output files for the number
           of digits set in the leafname.
        d) Reset all settings prior to loading a new profile. This will ensure that when
           changing profiles any 'new' features will be reset to defaults, rather than previous

        c) Tidied demo code so that 'Frame' settings are correctly saved within profiles when
           in demo mode.

        a) Bug fix: Main window correctly jumps to the front if obscured by another window and
           you click on the iconbar icon.
        b) Bug fix: Amended scaling factor of rotated thumbnails so that tall 'portrait' mode
           ones are a better ratio next to 'landscape' ones. Made formula 0.1 greater than the
           reciprocal of width/height ratio.
 v1.07 (5th Sep 2007)
        a) Bug fix: Ensure that all parameters are saved correctly when you create a new
        b) Changed meaning of some tags; -FFF- is now custom and filename is now -FIL-
        c) Added new tag -PAG- to insert HTML filename (minus the .html)

 v1.06 (10th Jul 2007)
        a) Bug fix: Save positions in rearrangement window if images have been moved around and

           directory entries (profiles and web templates menus).
        b) Added facility to delete images.
        c) Bug fix: Doing anything that can affect the position of images now correctly resets
           the 'rearrange images' flag.
        d) Added auto-scroll to rearrangement window if you drag an image to the top or bottom
           of the window.
 v1.04 (6th May 2007)
        a) Added ^ icons to file panel, to open relevant directories.
        b) Added import image by dragging images to the 'Captions' panel (as well as the
           re-arrangement window).
        c) Upgraded drag and drop import to allow dragging from other apps via Wimp$Scrap so you
           can now import images direct from emails.
        d) Allowed drag and drop to captions window in order to add images to the source. This
           previously only worked in the re-arrangement window.
        e) Added error message if duplicate filename exists when importing an extra image into
           the source directory.

        m) Added leafname of current image to preview icon in caption window.
        n) Bug fix: Prevented current caption being cleared after re-arranging images.
        o) Added 'Force overwrite' to Files panel and changed default operation to not
           overwriting existing image files. This dramatically reduces processing time because
           images are only re-processed if not already present in the destination directory, or
           if 'Force overwrite' is turned on.
        p) Speeded up rendering of preview icons slightly by turning off all non processing
           intensive ChangeFSI options when generating on-screen preview images.
        q) Added 'Fast' mode to ChangeFSI options, which changes into Mode 0 for faster JPEG
           processing (pretty useless option, because it waits for a key press/mouse click
           in-between each image!)
        r) Bug fix: Update thumbnail image in caption panel if position moves due to
           rearranging images.
        s) Improved error checking for coping with unintended user operations, such as deleting
           the 'dirlisting' file.
        t) Amended quit routine to not ask for confirmation if you've opened the captions panel
           but not changed anything.
        u) Made clicking on the 'Convert images only' (files panel) option toggle off
           non-relevant panels (for simplicity and to reduce confusion).
 v1.03 (6th Jan 2007)
        a) Amended template to remind SHIFT action on dragging source images.
        b) Added 'Open log' button to profiles panel.
        c) Improved logging for errors on merging images with arrangement window.
        d) Bug fix: Rearrangement window closes without warning when you click 'Cancel' if
           you've not moved anything.
        e) Made Cancel/OK buttons in re-arrangement window into a toolbar so that they're always
           visible, irrespective of scroll position.
        f) Added warning triangle image to warning window.
        g) Added button to Captions panel to open original source image in your favourite image
        h) Amended templates slightly to prevent invalid keypresses being entered in the wrong
        i) Bug fix: Compensated for maximum image size correctly when output images are rotated.
 v1.02 (23rd Dec 2006)

           the 'Save' button in the Profiles panel.
        b) Improved rotation icons in Captions panel slightly.
        c) Amended Prev/Next buttons in Captions panel to reverse action on Adjust click.

        a) Bug fix: Amended sprite name in warning window so that WebGallery icon correctly
        b) Added two extra sizes to list of preset image sizes in 'Files' panel.

           additional clarity.
        d) Amended default final image size to be 520x390.
        e) Added confirmation warning when closing rearrangement window.
        f) Removed 'close' icon from rearrangement window.
        g) Wrote tutorial to go through a worked example of Tricia Garner's Orchid gallery,
           highlighting the differences between the standard output and that using a web
        h) Changed the -FFF- template tag to -GGG- (to allow for below).
        i) Added a new -FFF- web template tag to substitute the filename of the current image
           (stripped of any filetype suffix).

        c) Created small filer sprite.

        f) Bug fix: No longer erases last caption when changing profile.
        g) Added 'Created by WebGallery' advertising icon.

        a) Added JPEG repair routines, to fix JPEG images which don't start with the correct
        b) Added a space after the © symbol.
        c) Tweaked code to detect image sizes slightly. This should allow WebGallery to detect
           some JPEG images which had rogue image sizes in them.
        d) Added new feature: Holding SHIFT down when dragging a directory of images will
           preserve any previous 'dirlisting' which will keep any rearrangement of images you
           may have made.
           (doing a normal drag will re-generate a new listing in filer order)
        e) Tidied up some of the initial directory listing generation code so that captions are

        c) Stopped background and iconset selectors from auto-repeating.
           Thanks to Steve Revill for suggesting this.

           suggesting this.
        e) Bug fix: Disabled borders around W3C validation icons

        j) Improved handling of JPEG images to avoid occasional 'end of file' error when
           scanning image size.

           open if a duff image is encountered whilst processing.
 v0.11 (21st Nov 2006) BETA 2
        a) Added LED status warning to captions window, to alert the user if anything
           potentially suppressing 'caption' output is set.
           Click on the LED to go to the offending panel to rectify.

        g) Changed background colour of first caption line, to distinguish between thumbnail
           caption and full caption.
        h) Added ability to import captions (drag a text file to captions window). Also added
           'Edit' button to load current caption into a text editor.
        i) Added check for presence !ChangeFSI in !Run file.
        j) Only generate thumbnail when you click on the 'Captions' panel, not when you drag a
           directory of images.
        k) Removed ability to drag source files into 'Captions' panel. This confused matters, so
           the only way to set the source directory is via the 'Files' panel.
        m) Added extra option to 'Page text' panel to toggle copyright symbol (©) on or
           off. If on (dark), the copyright text will be preceded by ©

           page text)
        o) Bug fix: Correctly detects/sets Alias$ChangeFSI so that the 'changefsi not found'
           error shouldn't occur. Some people were seeing this due to a missing line from
