v0.681 Beta Release! NOW OFFICIAL - March 7, 2010!

Fixes CopyDown problem reported by one customer with the v0.680 beta.

NOTE: This is fifth beta.  Please be sure that you make a copy of your current MP3-Boss directory before installing the new revision.  I'm making this public now so that I can get more feedback on any bugs.  I'd recommend you stay with the current v0.672 release unless you like to play with new beta revisions of software.  THANKS!

This version is the fourth public BETA that includes ZIP and CDG support.  This adds a number of new tables and fields ... so the new DATA.MDB is NOT compatible after the update.  Please be sure to SAVE a copy of your DATA.MDB before you update!

All known problems fixed.

Full install:
http://www.mp3-boss.com/BETA/mp3.exe
http://www.mp3-boss.com/BETA/mp3boss.zip

Upgrade:
http://www.mp3-boss.com/BETA/mp3update.exe
http://www.mp3-boss.com/BETA/mp3update.zip

Questions:
Should the default setting include scan for ZIP & CDG? 
Should the default setting turn off MD5 scanning over the network?  While I'm not doing a lot with the MD5 now ... at some point I plan to use it to do a verification check against file corruption.  Also, it could be used to help recover a partially scrambled drive ... since often just the filename is lost.
Have I forgotten to include anything?  At one point when I was working on this (and so was too busy to respond to non-CDG requests), I was getting a lot of suggestions ... and so some of those suggestions might have been lost.  Please let me know!

Please let me know what you find -- both good & bad!  Thanks for your help!

Re: v0.681 Beta Release! NOW OFFICIAL - March 7, 2010!

.681 (update) Installed perfectly.  Ran CopyDown where it had failed before and now it works perfectly. Tried both button and ALT-D.  The warning popup about the copy about to take place was as expected.  Finally, after copy completion, cursor focus ended at first column, last record affected.  Thanks.  Will let you know if I see something else.

Fantastic!  Thanks for testing ... and putting up with a few glitches!

Great to hear that I've fixed CopyDown -- a surprisingly complicated bit of code when run against an updated data table!

If I don't hear about any problems, I'll make this the official release this weekend.

Thanks for your help!
