Genghis v0.4

Sorry for the long wait. There’s been two whole books written between the last release of Genghis and this one. Here’s the list of new features:

  • Everything works under .NET 1.0 and 1.1 (except HandleCollector)
  • MSN Messanger-style popup window
  • UI Type Editor for use with ImageList index selection
  • AppBar implementation
  • Text file search
  • Themed controls
  • Single instance application support, including passing command line args from other instances
  • Multiple top-level window support
  • Many enhancements and fixes to the command line parser
  • Splash screen class
  • Improved WebCommandLineHelper class which now works with .NET 1.0 and 1.1, includes URL decoding and requires no additional permissions (although it does require a server-side HTTP handler, included as the ConfigFileHandler class that maps requests for foo.exe?bar=quux.config to the foo.exe.config file)
  • WizardSheet updates
  • Status Bar Extender for mapping status messages to Windows Forms controls

Thanks to my new build master, Mike Marshal, who got all of this together. He’s the greatest!
