CodeSnip v3.8.1 released
This release of CodeSnip fixes a reported bug in the way the main window displays syntax highlighted source code: user changes in the appearance of symbols and identifiers were being ignored. Also changed the Test Unit view dialog box to use the user defined syntax highlighter settings. Finally, the credits in the About Box program tab were updated.

Released v3.3 of the Version Information Component
This release of the Version Information Component make the TPJVersionNumber record that holds numeric version information data easier to work with. For compilers that support advanced records operator overloads have been added to TPJVersionNumber that enable records to be compared using the =, <>, <, <=, > and >= operators. Additionally TPJVersionNumber records can be implicitly cast as strings, when the record's data is formatted as a dotted quad, e.g. '1.2.3.4'. To provide similar support for earlier compilers, two new helper functions have been added: CompareVerNums compares two version number records while VerNumToStr formats a version number as a dotted quad.

The constants used to define the size of the buffers to receive user names and computer names have been changed according to Microsoft documentation. In the case of UserName this fixes CodeSnip issue ID 3094314 (http://bit.ly/bEqSZA). Thanks to Thierry Bothorel for pointing this out.

Development of the Macro Toolbar Display Wizard for Delphi 7 has been frozen.
This wizard works only with Delphi 7, which is now quite old. Furthermore there have never had to be any updates to the wizard since the first and only release: it is quite simple and seems to just work. Therefore I'm freezing development of this code. If you want to make changes, there is enough code in the download to do that.

The Colour Pop-up Menu Component has been "mothballed"
Development of the Colour Pop-up Menu Component has ceased. I've abandoned this component for three reasons. 1) because it needs a lot of work to give it a modern themed look and feel; 2) because I don't need it anymore and 3) because there are much better similar components out there. If you want to take over development please let me know. You can get the complete source tree from the component's download page.
