The new version is online now. There is a new feature called dropper window. This window lets you drop file on it for fast uploading files to your ftp without actually using the ftp-client. This window sits in a corner of your screen and accepts files you drop on it. This is functional with most file managers that exists.

Okay, this beta-test is now open for all. This is done because most of the testers
never replied to any mail. I will put up a version of AutoUpdate v2.0 next days.
This version will not require a registration key. All actual version aren't useful for the
visitors here.
Don't download now! I must first put up a new version.

Next time i will try to convert the source from the used components WinShoes
to Indy component package. This will result in a faster program with no temporary
files anymore. This means no problems with setting up a temporary folder or
similar. After this there will be a new version release as beta 2 with a new and
complete installer for the beta-version.

Send me a mail with the bug-description and i open a new bug point.
I fix it as soon as possible. The bugbase isn't uptodate, but i update it when
i got more time for doing it.
There is now an ideabase, which contains several ideas to implement.
Send mails with ideas and wishes directly to me.

There is a bug in news getting from server.
You cannot use files in directories except a file with same name exists in the root
When newsfile is '/autoupdate2beta/faq.html', there must be a file '/faq.html' in the root
directory of the server.
I will post a fix as soon as i can.
