have your project under CVS control, you ''ll know why this had to happen...
* Compiler settings per-project
* Compiler set per-project
* Implemented new compiler settings framework
* "Compile as C++" per-unit
* "Include file in compilation process" per-unit
* Project version info (creates the relevant VERSIONINFO struct in the private
resource)
* Support XP Themes (creates the CommonControls 6.0 manifest file and includes
it in the private resource)
* Added CVS "login" and "logout" commands
* Project manager and debugging window (in Debug tab) can now be trasnformed into
floating windows.
* Added "Add Library" button in Project Options
* Bug fixes

Version 4.9.6.9
* Implemented search in help files for the word at cursor (context sensitive help)
* Implemented "compiler sets" infrastructure to switch between different compilers
easily (e.g. gcc-2.95 and gcc-3.2)
* Added "Files" tab in CVS form to allow selection of more than one file for
the requested CVS action

Version 4.9.6.8
* support for DLL application hosting, for debugging and executing DLLs under Dev-
C++.
* New class browser option: "Show inherited members"
* Added support for the '::' member access operator in code-completion
* Added *working* function arguments hint
* Added bracket highlighting. When the caret is on a bracket, that bracket and
its counterpart are highlighted
* Nested folders in project view

Version 4.9.6.7
* XP Theme support
* Added CVS commands "Add" and "Remove"
* Added configuration option for "Templates Directory" in "Environment Options"
* Code-completion updates
* Bug fixes

Version 4.9.6.6
* Editor colors are initialized properly on Dev-C++ first-run
* Added doxygen-style comments in NewClass, NewMemberFunction and NewMemberVariable
wizards
* Added file's date/time stamp in File/Properties window
* Current windows listing in Window menu
* Bug fixes

Version 4.9.6.5
* CVS support
* Window list (in Window menu)
* bug fixes

version 4.9.6.4
* added ENTER key for opening file in project browser, DEL to delete from the
project.
* bug fixes

version 4.9.6.3
* Bug fixes

version 4.9.6.2
* Bug fixes

version 4.9.6.1
* New "Abort compilation" button
* Bug fixes
* Now checks for vRoach existance when sending a crash report

Version 4.9.5.5
* New option in Editor Options: Show editor hints. User can disable the hints
displayed in the editor when the mouse moves over a word. Since this was the
cause of many errors (although it should be fixed by now), we are giving the
user the option to disable this feature.
* New option in Editor Options (code-completion): Use code-completion cache.
Well, it adds caching to code-completion. Depending on the cache size,
the program may take a bit longer to start-up, but provides very fast
code-completion and the user has all the commands (belonging to the files
he added in the cache) at his fingertips. If, for example, the user adds
"windows.h", he gets all the WinAPI! If he adds "wx/wx.h", he gets all of
wxWindows! You get the picture...
* Removed "Only show classes from current file" option in class browser settings.
It used to be a checkbox, allowing only two states (on or off), but there is
a third relevant option now: "Project classes" so it didn't fit the purpose...
The user can define this in the class browser's context menu under "View mode".
* Fixed the dreaded "Clock skew detected" compiler warning!
* Fixed many class browser bugs, including some that had to do with class folders.

Version 4.9.5.4
* Under NT, 2000 and XP, user application data directory will be used to store
config files (i.e : C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Application
Data)

Version 4.9.5.3
* Added ExceptionsAnalyzer. If the devcpp.map file is in the devcpp.exe directory
then we even get a stack trace in the bug report!
* Added new WebUpdate module (inactive temporarily).
* Added new code for code-completion caching of files (disabled - work in
progress).

Version 4.9.5.2
* Added new option in class-browser: Use colors
(available when right-clicking the class-browser
and selecting "View mode").
* Dev-C++ now traps access violation of your programs (and of itself too ;)

Version 4.9.5.1
* Implemented the "File/Export/Project to HTML" function.
* Added "Tip of the day" system.
* When running a source file in explorer, don't spawn new instance.
Instead open the file in an already launched Dev-C++.
* Class-parser speed-up (50% to 85% improvement timed!!!)
* Many code-completion updates. Now takes into account context,
class inheritance and visibility (shows items only from files
#included directly or indirectly)!
