(2001/april/3)
here is the last version of tsTools that will exists, except a version
for delphi 6. that will be out in the mid of the year 2001. so download
build no. 189 now. it works very smooth and has many bug fixes in it.
there are now many new things in it... it also have a helpfile with it,
but the documentation is incomplete. the helpfile is full browseable,
since it is generated from source-code. have fun with the components.
look at the history below ;-)

(1999/december/14)
this new build is no. 133. go get it and have fun... much changes since
last release ;) and also more components. sorry, but the docs and help
haven't been done... try out or look at demo programs.

(1999/november/24)
so here is the new development build 121. it runs only in delphi 4 and 5.
run the installer, choose a directory and install it. for uninstall delete
the directory where it is located. open the projectgroup and install the
packages. also here is a new screenshot of the component icons.
have fun with this release as much as you can. these components are work
in progress!
