*****************************************************************************
                          Release 3 of EZCron:
*****************************************************************************

 This Release:

 - Fixed major bugs in the preferences window.
 - Removed <>NIL: as this was causing problems on some machines.
 - Added help gadget.
 - Fixed closewindow refresh bug in time/date windows.
 - Fixed bug in the AddDefEvent routing. Leftover routine from old prefs files.
 - 15 Minute preset was missing the half hour field. Also, it would
   execute every 10 minutes instead of 15. A simple typo...fixed.
 - Better editor housekeeping. Refresh now deselects events.


EZCron is a program that will run other programs or arexx scripts at
given times and dates.

EZCron is unlike most other Cron programs in that it gives the user a
complete Graphic User Interface for controlling your programs start time,
start date, arguments, sound sample on start time, and even text reminder
strings!  EZCron makes it easy to add, edit, enable, disable and delete
existing events using an easy to use GUI.  No more messing around with unix
like cron config files and hard to learn syntax.  EZCron makes it easy!

Features:
=========
 o Very easy to use GUI interface.
 o Time Presets Built in: Once, Every Minute, 5 Minutes,
   10 Minutes, 15 Minutes, 20 Minutes, 30 Minutes and Hourly (User
Configurable).
 o Date Presets Built in: Once, Day of Week, Daily, Monthly,
   Weekdays, Weekends (User Configurable).
 o Startup Events (Kinda like a WBStartup for CLI launches)
 o Supports Wildcards in Time/Date fields for virtually unlimited Time and/or
Date combinations.
 o Unlimited program arguments.
 o Easily Add, Delete, Edit, Enable/Disable and Test events.
 o Optional sound file may be triggered with any event.
 o Supports Time Ranges (Very useful)
 o Supports Date Ranges (Also, very useful).
 o Speaking and/or Visual Reminders.

Example usages:
===============
 o Get your email and/or newsgroup readings automatically.
 o Backup or defrag your HD automatically.
 o Control your lights/appliances with X10 control (Home Director).
 o Automatically update your webpage or FTP files (as CBS television station
WDTV does).
 o Start LightWave/Imagine renderings without being present.
 o Complete automated control over your ENTIRE system.

What's New in Release 3
=======================
 o Create your own Date/Time presets.
 o GUI now more compatable with non-laced NTSC/PAL screenmodes.
 o Event listview now contains editable event descriptions instead of
   actual executable name. This is nice for identifiing events when 
   you have several alike events.
 o Disabled events now appear like disable tooltypes (surrounded by
   parenthesis if disabled).
 o Now suppports multiple times for single events. Will also support
   wildcards here as well.
 o You can now 'tell' an event not to seperate from the main EZCronD task.
   This is useful for keeping multiple events that run simultaneously
   from 'stepping' on one another. Also useful for executing events at the
   same time/date in a given order.
 o You can now load and save Event Configurations.
 o Now keeps track of your reboot time and date.
 o Redesigned preferences control panel.
 o Supports external plugins via arexx.
 o More scripts.
 o Load and Save individual events
 o Multiple prefs files have been replaced with one prefs file.

 Please Note: The pre-development of a MUI version has been discontinued
 until furthur notice.
