Summary of changes in version 0.9.2 :
- You can save/load your favorites and aliases on my web server (jcmag.europe.webmatrixhosting.net, in a Sql Server database). So you can retrieve them everywhere.
I put the default files on the server, you can retrieve them using username/pwd : favalias/favalias (! it will overwrite your current settings !)
- You can type a command even if it is not an alias, for example "iisreset". So Favalias behaves like Windows "Run" window.
- Changed the "cmd" alias to : "run cmd.exe /K date /t & time /t & if exist "%VS71COMNTOOLS%\vsvars32.bat" ("%VS71COMNTOOLS%\vsvars32.bat") else (echo VS.NET not installed) &" ; so you can use the .NET tools if VS is installed and you can create aliases to launch commands like :
"ip" alias to display your IP addresses -> "cmd ipconfig /all"

- You can use Favalias as a calculator since google has a new calculator function, so you can "evaluate math expressions (5+2*2, 2^20, sine(30 degrees), e^(i pi)+1), units of measure and conversions (100 miles in kilometers, 160 pounds * 4000 feet in Calories), and physical constants (1 a.u./c, G*mass, earth/radius of earth^2). You can also experiment with other numbering systems, including hexadecimal and binary (0x1A in decimal)".
- Change CommandLineParser to support ArrayList fields (so multiple arguments), and fix some bugs (optional parameters, default values, use of ":"...)
- You can specify the modifiers (ctrl, alt, shift, win) for your shortcut key (new project added : SystemHotKey ; KeyboardHook is removed).
- Change the IFavaliasAddin interface : add a Hashtable param to transmit multiple arguments to addins (so we could add new arguments without breaking existing addins). The Hashtable contains "aliasName", "browser", "proxyIP", "proxyPort", "appFolder", "appDataFolder", "addinsFolder".
- Sort variables in SystemInfo Addin.
- New addins :
*In ConverterAddins project :
