That's great that some development activity is taking place, but I feel it is too bad they didn't wait until they could say it work with Windows 11 too.

I mean the last full official (non-beta, non-alpha) release was with V19.00 back in February 2019. That's nearly 3 years ago! What's another couple months to ensure it works with W11 now that it is officially out and most new computers are coming with W11, or will soon be upgraded to it?

Oh well. Like I said, it is good to see development is still on-going.

Odd how .05 was removed from the change history log.
