MD5 Message Digest Unit now fully documented on the wiki
Full documentation of the MD5 Message Digest Unit is now available on the DelphiDabbler wiki. This improves upon and greatly extends the information previously available on my GoogleCode ddab-lib project Wiki. The new docs include a programmers' guide that describes each method, constant, property, record etc. There's also a project overview and a how-to guide. The old GoogleCode docs have been removed.

Bug in program registration web service fixed.
This bug was reported as issue # 3353480 in the CodeSnip bug tracker. The program registration web service was refusing to register CodeSnip programs on operating systems whose descriptions were longer than 80 characters. This restriction has been removed from the web service. Affected versions of CodeSnip should now work. There is no need to update the program.

CodeSnip v3.8.11 released. Required update for IE9 users.
Release 3.8.11 of CodeSnip fixes a display problem in the About and Compiler Error dialog boxes that manifests itself if you have updated to Internet Explorer 9. A bit of backward incompatibility with the browser control meant that a couple of tabs of the About box were blank and the Compiler Error dialog box had no content!

CodeSnip 3.8.10 released
This new release of CodeSnip is quite a minor user interface update. I've reverted the behaviour of checked list box and tree view controls so that clicking the item text no longer toggles the check box state. This non-standard behaviour was making the controls harder to use rather than easier! Also added a FAQs topic to help file that links to the Codesnip FAQ Wiki.
