-------- history ----- this is not the complete history, read the guide!----

Changes made for 3.98:

If ViNCEd became active before ENV: and LOCALE: were setup,
the localization wasn't updated for new windows even after
ENV: became mounted. ViNCEd now also pulls all new system
preferences once it becomes aware that the preferences system
becomes active. Also, a new swedish locale is included, thank
goes to Pär Boberg for tackling this!

Changes made for 3.97:

When ViNCEd becomes active before the ENV: assign is made,
ViNCEd did not become aware of preferences changes and hence
never adapted its settings if changes were made through
SetVNC. It now re-attempts to register notification events
every time a ViNCEd window is openend.

Changes made for 3.96:

When mounted, ViNCEd now automatically fixes its stack size
to at least 4096 bytes required by the core. This avoids
problems if ViNCEd is used as CON: replacement and the CON:
stack size is not fixed by SetPatch as it should.

Changes made for 3.95.1:

ViNCEd remained unchanged, but SetVNC was updated. First, the
"simple setup" apparently confused many people as some options
mentioned in the guide do not appear unless users un-ticked the
"simple setup" in the first page.
Second, sizing the sprite for the color setup did not work
properly on AGA machines with the hires sprite selected, and
SetVNC did not restore the original resolution of the sprite
pointer when terminating.

Changes made for 3.95:

This release resolves one of the "open ends" of ViCNEd. In case
the "automatic line breaking at the right border" was selected,
ViNCEd broke the lines as requested, but did not re-compute
line-breaking when the window was resized. While a lot of
preparation work was done to make this possible, the actual
re-formatting algorithm was missing, and was finally included.

Note that formatting only applies to printed output, not to
user input, which continues to scroll.

Changes made for 3.94:

After 18 years of silence, this is a re-release of ViNCEd under
my own copyright, and ViNCEd is again freeware.
This version improves the handling of the "medium mode" such that
it is fully compatible with the Os 3.2 (v47) version of the shell.
TAB expansion is then fully done by the shell, bypassing ViNCEd.
ViNCEd changes now its cursor shape for the shell-driven TAB
expansion, and sends a ^E to the shell to abort the expansion.
Also, ViNCEd uses now the intuition v47 sysiclass for iconification
if this gadget is present.


Check the TOP_SECRET or ReadMe.First file in this archive!
Especially, these SHOULD BE RUN FIRST before you start with
the installation.

VirusWorkShop seems to have trouble with the overlay file structure
that is used by the SetVNC program.
THIS IS NOT A VIRUS! It is a bugfix of the oldish CBM overlay
manager which is really buggy!

To trick VirusWorkshop, the SetVNC program in this archive is
encoded. Use the "Decode" program from the "Extras" drawer to
decode manually. The installer script has been updated to do
this for you.
