I have put a new version of the FileBrowser on <LispCore>Library>.  This is what has changed':'
The Rename command now takes a default destination directory when called with multiple files.  (AR 321)'
The Copy command now works when you''re only copying a single file.  (No AR (!) for this one)'
The See command pops up a scrollable window containing the listing of the file.  (The old version''s window didn''t scroll). (No AR)'
The FileBrowser has its own prompt window, and no longer pops up superfluous windows.  (AR 322)'
Prompts no longer have missing punctuation. (AR 323)'
It puts up an "Expunge deleted files" menu when you try to shrink or close the window and there are unexpunged deleted files.  (AR 760)'
It shrinks to a distinctive icon. (AR 760)'
It uses a "nicer" font  for the list of files. (No AR)'
Remaining problems':'
The same operations that were slow continue to be so, pending work on the Interlisp-D directory code. (AR 113)'
It still treats subdirectories strangely (ARs 324, 489, 343)'
I''d like to hear what you think of it.  Send your comments to  Thanks.'
