Foxmail op z'n Hollands: "Met de Update Only kun je bestaande FM versie
updaten naar 5.0.600.0.
Het is een setup bestand en zal alleen de oude met de vernieuwde bestanden overschrijven. "
Maak dus van te voren wel even een backupje. - de mail directory wordt niet aangepast. Ook de address directory wordt volgens mij niet overschreven. (in de archive is het een lege directory)

Autoit 3 was released!!

AutoIt v3 Official Home Page: "AutoIt v3 is an opensource BASIC-like scripting language designed for automating the Windows GUI. It uses a combination of simulated keystrokes, mouse movement and window/control manipulation in order to automate tasks in a way not possible or reliable with other languages (e.g. VBScript and SendKeys).
AutoIt was initially designed for PC 'roll out' situations to configure thousands of PCs, but with the arrival of v3 it is also well suited to performing home automation and the scripting of repetitive tasks.
AutoIt can:

  • Provide a general-purpose scripting language
  • Execute Windows and DOS executables
  • Simulate key-strokes (supports most keyboard layouts)
  • Simulate mouse movements and clicks
  • Move, resize and manipulate windows
  • Interact directly with 'controls' on a window (set/get text from edit controls, check boxes and radio buttons, select items in drop-down lists, etc.)
  • Work with the clipboard to cut/paste text items
  • Work with the registry

Unlike AutoIt v2, the new v3 language has a much more standard syntax -similar to VBScript and BASIC - and now supports complex expressions, user functions, looping and everything else that veteran scripters would expect.
As with previous versions, AutoIt has been designed to be as small as possible (~80KB) and stand-alone with no external .dll files or registry entries required. Scripts can also be compiled into stand-alone executables with Aut2Exe.

There will also be updates to the ActiveX and DLL versions of AutoIt called AutoItX3 - unlike v2 this will be a combined control (COM and standard DLL functions in the same DLL). AutoItX3 will allow you to add the unique features of AutoIt to your own favourite scripting or programming languages! (AutoItX3 is currently in beta, the files can be downloaded here).

Best of all, AutoIt continues to be FREE - but if you want to support the time, money and effort spent on the project and web hosting then you may donate using the link to your left in the menu.

Take me to the downloads page!
