The following changes have been applied to the installer at http://www.autohotkey.com/download/

Fixed Progress so that the W (window width) option works again.

Fixed the ALT key so that if it is itself a hotkey that fires on key-down, keys sent by the Send command will not be modified by the ALT key. [thanks Wade]

Scan code prefix keys are now possible, e.g. SC118 & Enter::MsgBox. [thanks Rajat]

Improved SplashImage:
- "Keep aspect ratio" can be achieved by specifying -1 for either ZW (object width) or ZH (object height). [thanks MikeG]
- The image is fully redrawn when you drag another window across it (prevents artifacts).
- The image does not "flash" while the user is resizing the window.

The following changes have been applied to the installer at http://www.autohotkey.com/download/

Fixed A_LoopFileDir to be blank for files contained in the root folder of a relative-path search.

Improved ControlClick so that a specific X and Y coordinate within the control can be clicked. [thanks Beastmaster]

Improved SetTimer with an option to set the timer's thread priority.

Added command Thread, which changes the priority of the current thread. A thread's priority determines whether it can interrupt (or be interrupted by) other threads.

Added built-in variables for month name (A_MMMM and A_MMM) and day name (A_DDDD and A_DDD). In addition, A_Year may now be optionally referred to as A_YYYY, A_Mon as A_MM, and A_MDay as A_DD.

Another change has been applied: Fixed the Input command so that activating the Ctrl-Alt-Del security screen does not cause it to think that CTRL and ALT are stuck down. [thanks frk and beardboy]

Fixed Shift+Win hotkeys that used the Send command: In some cases, extra shift key events were being generated, which interfered with the ability to use the hotkey two or more times in a row. [thanks Jabberwock]

A few minor changes have been applied to the installer at http://www.autohotkey.com/download/

If you are using any of the thread priority features, the method by which a thread's priority is determined has changed slightly. The default thread priority is always zero and the "Thread, priority" command now affects only the current thread. The details are at http://www.autohotke...isc/Threads.htm

Changed custom menu items so that they cannot interrupt the OnExit subroutine (as documented). In addition, custom menu items now behave more like hotkeys in terms of buffering and their ability to interrupt other threads.

The following commands now support setting thread priority: Hotkey, Menu, SetTimer, and Thread (sets the current thread's priority).

---

My goal is to get the new hot strings feature out by Thursday, which will be version 1.0.16.

A few more changes have been applied to the installer at http://www.autohotkey.com/download/

Fixed StringUpper/StringLower so that they work on accented letters and other letters whose ASCII value is above 127.

Fixed the Input command so that having more than 1024 items in the match-list does not cause a memory problem.

Fixed ambiguity with `:: when it's used as as part of a hotkey vs. literally in a command. [thanks Rajat]

Changed the Input command so that ENTER is seen as the more-appropriate linefeed (`n) rather than carriage return (`r). This affects the contents of the OutputVar and the MatchList. Please change your scripts accordingly.

Changed the Input command so that Control-Backspace and other modified backspaces are ignored. Only plain backspace is used as an "undo" keystroke.

Increased max size of each variable from 16 to 64 MB. This does not increase the memory used by existing scripts. This can be made a configurable option if anyone needs it.

Added support for the AutoIt v2 command HideAutoItWin.

And a couple more:

Fixed Run/RunWait of .lnk files (shortcuts). [thanks ealerner]

Changed Run/RunWait so that they will launch non-EXE files (such as documents), using the default verb rather than "open". Since the default verb is usually "open", this shouldn't affect most existing scripts.

And again: Added commands SendRaw and ControlSendRaw, which send the keystrokes exactly as they appear rather than translating {Enter} to an ENTER keystroke, ^c to Control-C, etc.
