v0.678 Beta Release

Fixes all known problems from the v0.677 beta.

NOTE: This is third 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 third 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!

This version fixes an installation problem with the Update release (created desktop shortcuts that weren't valid -- I've removed those shortcuts completely), and fixes some problems with CopyDown.

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: v0.678 Beta Release

Minor problem to fix in v0.679:
1) If click on the selected file in lower-left of List View, the name gets truncated (with ...).

2) Uninstall settings not correct for Update installer (install.log not found).

Re: v0.678 Beta Release

Ive testet the copy down function, it does not work.
I think, in version 0677 it worked.

Re: v0.678 Beta Release

I am releasing v0.680 -- I think it has finally fixed the problem with CopyDown.  In addition, the new release now writes more information to the log file.

Thanks for your help!
