Changed the installer at http://www.autohotkey.com/download/

Fixed command "Process Priority" so that the priority level can be contained in a variable. [thanks Rajat]

Changed the installer at http://www.autohotkey.com/download/

Fixed commands that turn on the keyboard hook (such as Input) so that they will not re-enable suspended hotkeys. [thanks jordi]

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

Changed BlockInput so that input blocking is momentarily disabled whenever the Send command needs to simulate an ALT keystroke. Since there is a slight chance this will break existing scripts that attempt to send ALT while BlockInput is ON, please check and adjust accordingly.

Improved BlockInput to optionally come on automatically during any of the following commands: Send, SendRaw, MouseMove, MouseClick, and MouseClickDrag. [thanks beardboy]

Added command "if var [not] contains MatchList", which is the same as using IfInString/IfNotInString except that multiple search strings are supported (any one of which will cause a match). [thanks whynot]

Fixed hotstrings and the Input command on keyboard layouts that use AltGr to produce visible characters such as the @ symbol. [thanks Tekl, jordi, and /Torben]

Fixed WinGetText and ControlGetText so that the retrieved text is limited to the maximum size of a variable, which defaults to 64 MB. [thanks hermitress]

Slightly improved the monitoring and buffering of hotkeys (especially joystick) during times when the script is displaying a dialog or is uninterruptible.

Added directive #MaxMem, which allows the maximum capacity of each variable to be changed from its default of 64 MB.

Added command KeyWait, which waits for a key or mouse/joystick button to be released or pressed down.

Fixed the DeleteAll option of the Menu command so that it doesn't permanently disable any "sub-sub-menus" indirectly owned by a menu. [thanks compuboy_r]

Fixed hotstrings so that caseless characters (such as digits) do not disqualify an abbreviation from being considered uppercase. For example, if "::au1::AustraliaBeaches.com" is a hotstring, when you type AU1 vs. au1, now the replacement will be in all caps as it should.

Fixed hotstrings and the input command so they don't cause unwanted side-effects when Alt+LeftArrow/RightArrow are pressed (and possibly other keys). This fix corrects a problem introduced by the AltGr fix mentioned further above.

More minor changes to case-conforming hotstrings have been applied. For example, if you have a hotstring that consists entirely of caseless characters (punctuation, digits, etc.), the replacement will be set as-is rather than in all-caps. In addition, if a hotstring has a caseless character as its first character, but the user types its first alpha character (2nd, 3rd, etc.) in uppercase, the first letter of the replacement will be uppercase by default.

Added an option to Run and RunWait that avoids the display of the failure dialog and the termination of the current thread. [thanks compuboy_r and others who have asked]

Added an option to change the background color of a menu via "Menu, MenuName, Color, ColorValue" (has no effect on Windows 95/NT).
