9 new Code Snippets database routines and 1 type
Added nine assorted new snippets and a useful type definition to the Code Snippets Database. The snippets are a very mixed bag and fall into several categories. Contributors were Montor, Rubem Nascimento da Rocha and DelphiDabbler. The type definition can crack open a Delphi TColor type while the routines range from one to get the system idle time, one to check for parent classes, four for working with rectangles, one to format an RFC 2822 date and two that perform high quality stretch copy operations on bitmaps.

New Code Snippets database routine
Added new CheckInternetConnection routine to the Code Snipets database that checks for a valid internet connection. This may be used instead of the existing IsInternetConnected that has been found to fail to work on some operating systems. Thanks to Irwin Scollar for this routine.

Released CodeSnip v3.8.7
This release fixes a minor bug where compiler information was inappropriately included in descriptions of freeform snippets that are printed or copied to clipboard with the Edit | Copy Information menu option. It also adds Delphi XE's compiler version to the drop down menu in the Code Generation tab of the Preferences dialog box.
