Updates and Fixes


XCenter AutoOpen:

- XCenter will now open automatically at startup and after a Desktop

restart - an icon in the Startup folder is no longer needed. This

feature can be disabled in the XCenter's properties.

Details view:

- third-party WPS dlls built using the Open Watcom compiler could cause

the Size field in Details view to be misformatted. XWP now checks for

the error condition they cause and corrects it.

Class List:

- added descriptive entries for previously undocumented classes and

updated existing descriptions. [from Lewis Rosenthal]

Trap log:

- added a new section to identify which exception handler caught the

trap; updated other sections


- fixed trap at startup if XWP's list of Startup folders included

invalid objects


- simplified the "Worker" thread code; removed obsolete thread priority

setting from the XWP Setup notebook


- revised the Options menu; added a "Compact" option for Details view

- fixed an exception when files were rendered after a drop operation

- improved error-checking and exception handling.

Build system:

- made several changes to reduce the shared-memory usage of XWP's dlls;

one of these also eliminated the need for translators to use a C

compiler to build NLS dlls

- removed a misguided optimization which could cause third-party

XCenter widget dlls to be 8-10 times larger than needed

- for XWP-Lite builds, suppressed Help file references to features

that are not included.
