Change History ============== 3.1.0.0 - 2016-03-21 -------------------- - fixed occasional problem remembering HTML notification window size under Windows 8.1 - show hourglass cursor when marking calls as new or read - removed 'mark as new' and 'mark as read' commands from calls report -- make these changes in the calls tab - fixed possible exception when checking for automatic backup time when Windows has been running longer than 49 days - support dialing when using modem directly (i.e., not in TAPI mode) - updated Google search URLs (https is now required, apparently) - make sure script editor is at least partly on screen when opened - fixed error messages on startup on systems with non-colon time separator - fixed problem saving changes in Options window when devices were enabled before activating as a client - fixed looking up area code from Contact list - attempted fix for composite devices sometimes being handled as separate devices - added debug messages around instance data handling to help find cause of "already open in another user session" messages - increased default number of automatic backups to keep from 3 to 9 - Call window: can now delete labels by pressing "Delete" key while label combo box is dropped down and an item is highlighted (previously this would only delete the label if it was currently selected) - Contact window: can now delete labels (on Extra tab) by pressing "Delete" key while label combo box is dropped down and an item is highlighted - Contact window: can now sort labels (on Extra tab) - Calls For window: open call window when a call is double-clicked - added duplicate calls report (accessible by View->Duplicate Calls, or by right-clicking on Calls grid and selecting "Delete Duplicate Calls...") - added fake outgoing call command - fixed licensing problem with composite devices where a component device might be disabled - attempted fix for problem downloading Whozz Calling? calls one customer saw - added CallBeganDate, CallBeganTime, CallEndedDate, and CallEndedTime columns to Calls Report - enabled CTRL+A shortcut for selecting all text in Call window Notes when Notes has focus - trap exceptions when retrieving local IP address to fix exception one user reported when reopening Whozz Calling? Ethernet Link device - show phone number in outgoing call dialed from Ascendis Caller ID using modem - prevent saving changes in Options window when Whozz Calling? device is enabled but Ascendis Caller ID is scanning for devices or serial ports - fixed potential exception when shutting down Ascendis Caller ID while Options window is scanning for Whozz Calling? devices or serial ports - fixed problem accessing drive D: at startup reported by one user - added support for CTI Comet CID capture device - log start and end of scanning for serial ports and Whozz Calling? Ethernet devices in Options window - Find in Contacts list now searches Notes field - fixed rare problem with auto import contacts date setting on some systems - improved handling of call waiting calls on composite devices (Please note that call waiting ID support, as implemented in Ascendis Caller ID and the Zoom 3095, is called "Snooping CID" in the Zoom documentation. It only works when another phone device that supports call waiting ID is connected in parallel with the modem. In our tests, it works if the phone in use ("off-hook") supports call waiting ID, but not if a non-call waiting ID phone is being used. It is apparently not sufficient for a call waiting ID phone to be plugged into the phone line -- it must also be in use ("off-hook").) - remember last contact selected when assigning number to existing contact - fixed cosmetic issues in Call Notes window, especially with custom fonts - fixed cosmetic issue in Auto Import Contacts window - close network connections before suspending and open on resume to fix potential hang problem when network connection is not available on resume - fixed problem when changing composite device description - improved composite device call processing when call information is not received from devices in close proximity in time - fixed problem where call end was sometimes reported as before call start - added contact notes, contact extra, and contact custom fields to calls list and calls report (In order to see these fields in the field customization drop down list, you may have to reset the grid by right-clicking on it and choosing "Reset Grid". This will remove all grid column customizations!) - added "Tell EZLynx" action - improved error handling when database can't be opened at startup - added "Tell Time Matters" action - added DDE_Send.exe - when dialing from the contact list, now dials the phone number for the selected contact instead of the first phone number in the database for the contact - added help for secure web server and web access editor - per-folder secure web access: check access file in parent folder(s) if username is not found in local access file - web access editor: minor cosmetic changes - web access editor: fixed bug where changes to a user were not detected for purposes of confirming cancel - web access editor: fixed bug where backup was deleted after cancel confirmation prompt if cancel was cancelled - Options window: minor cosmetic changes to Web/TiVo Server page - support more date formats when importing CSV calls - sped up CSV call importing ~36% - Options window, Mail tab: don't display password - added per-folder web server authentication - added secure web server - install: backup files in webroot folder before overwriting - fixed last 1 or 2 digits of long phone numbers (> 12 digits) on Whozz Calling? devices appearing in name (note that Whozz Calling? devices only support up to 14 digits for phone number and additional digits will still appear in name) - fixed exception when deleting all contacts and importing contacts - support more date formats when importing new contacts - added more speech error descriptions - attempted fix for reported speech exception ($8004503A) for one Windows 8 64-bit user - encode control characters in XML export files - fixed potential problem preventing startup on Windows Server 2012 64-bit (and other versions of Windows?) - made ###NUMBER### a synonym for ###DISPLAYNUMBER### in contact blocks in web server pages - fixed problem accessing modems directly in Windows 8 - added call waiting ID support for Zoom 3095 in direct mode (aka 'not TAPI') To use: in the Options window, Devices page, Modems and TAPI sub page, get properties on the modem and enable "Enable call waiting id". Notes: 1) When a call waiting call is detected, the action for the caller runs but Hangup and PhoneSound commands are blocked since Ascendis Caller ID doesn't know which party is on the line. Since the modem doesn't distinguish between normal and call waiting ID messages, Ascendis Caller ID assumes a caller ID message without a preceding ring is a call waiting ID message. In some countries, this could prevent Hangup and PhoneSound from ever working. 2) Call waiting id detection may vary with the phone being used when the call is detected -- this is a hardware limitation. - fixed deleting call from Calls Report using navigator toolbar - fixed word wrap in Contact window's notes memo - if no devices are open, periodically reopen configured devices -- fixes problem when a modem is not available when we start but becomes available later - fixed problem with automatic backups if system goes to sleep during backup - default network status window to status page since log is disabled by default - reconnect to network servers when waking from sleep -- if configured to poll first, this will download calls since going to sleep - fixed deleting calls from navigator toolbar - fixed potential duplicate calls when using Whozz Calling? Ethernet Link models on some networks - turned off "Process selection" for calls report since it doesn't work with this type of grid - changed "Buy Now" links to go to the web pricing page, so user must choose the number of phone lines desired - don't show date-based filter items in calls report duration filter drop down - fixed problem filtering calls report on duration - added "Fake Out of Area Call" command (available with other fake call commands on status bar context menu) - when refreshing the contact list, retain the focused row and, if the number of records hasn't changed, the selections - support "RING L...,N..." messages (from NetMod ISDN modem) - don't assert when an empty string is passed to Speak command - sped up CSV contact importing 150 times for some CSV files - handle more date formats when importing CSV contacts - added port and authentication mode to send mail log message - activation fix for some machines - log phone number assignments that occur because of pattern matching to Activity Log - when name AND number patterns are specified for a single contact pattern, both patterns must match for the phone number to be assigned (previously either match caused the phone number to be assigned) - fixed problem where some calls received on non-Lite Whozz Calling? devices could be processed as two calls (wait longer for device's response to "V" command; when "V" response and detail messages are received from device, we know it's not Lite) -- problem was seen on a Whozz Calling? 4 Ethernet Link - don't perform automatic backup if calls are in progress - don't configure Whozz Calling? Ethernet devices if multiple devices are found and we're not configured to talk to one on the local subnet (this fixes a problem we've seen where multiple Whozz Calling? Ethernet devices cause a device configuration error which causes one device to hang up on all calls) - Options window: allow re-scanning for network Whozz Calling? devices (choose appropriate option in Whozz Calling? port combo box) - Options window: scan serial ports and network Whozz Calling? devices in background to speed opening window - support choosing a single Whozz Calling? Ethernet Link device (only works for devices on same subnet) - when importing calls via CSV when RawNumber field is not specified, use any provided name field - Repair Modem: fixed problem where wrong modem settings might be used if a modem with the same modem id was previously recognized by Ascendis Caller ID - Repair Modem: fixed problem repairing TAPI responses on some 64-bit machines - trap and report additional types of automatic backup failure - Repair Modem: don't check Windows' TAPI settings and responses if the modem is configured for direct mode - Repair Modem: don't change modem access mode to TAPI if the modem is configured for direct mode - reopen devices after repairing modem if we're not restarting - immediately disable all devices once activated as client - fixed problem with Skype version 5 (which no longer installs Skype4COM) - fixed activation problem with computers with varying max CPU clock speed 3.0.0.0 - 2011-10-14 -------------------- - Repair Database command now optimizes too - installs empty and initial database CIDDB files in data folder too for ease of access - increased default main window width - fixed problem importing version 1 database - added commands to import version 1 settings and version 2 settings and database - improved importing settings and database from previous versions - fixed potential exception on some machines when printing call notes - fixed rare exception on some machines when using the Run command in actions - fixed problem where minimizing display panel all the way and then exiting Ascendis Caller ID prevented the display panel from being restored - don't let user select a Ring action that hangs up - warn user when choosing a Ring action other than "Ring" or "Do Nothing" - increased default size of Line Monitor window - added automatic backups (on by default; see File -> "Auto Backup Database..." for configuration) - improved handling of unexpected TAPI error codes - trap TAPI error when getting system's country code and default to "1" - new actions now use {SpeakName} instead of {Name} in default speak text - "Empty Database.ciddb" is now literally empty -- no records exist in any of the lists - now installs "Initial Database.ciddb" into Ascendis Caller ID Program Files folder -- this contains the database as it appears on first install - added "Speak Name" and "Speak Name and Number" actions (these will only appear for new installations; if you want to add these simple actions to an existing installation, import "Standard Actions.xml" from the Program Files folder using File -> Import -> Actions) - the "Default" action now speaks the phone number only if the caller is not a contact and the number is not the same as the name (this change will only appear for new installations) - when a contact is deleted, recompute the name fields for the phone numbers assigned to the contact from the raw caller id name (as would happen when the call is first received) -- fixes problem with names "sticking" to a phone number after a contact is deleted - fixed race condition with scripts that could cause logged errors - trap errors during database updates and restore database - default to XML file type in export dialogs - added option to disable Whozz Calling? device memory call download (in Options window, Devices page, Whozz Calling? subpage, Options) - include US area codes in Locations list (existing customers can import "US Area Code Locations.xml" from the Ascendis Caller ID Program Files folder) - support importing Locations from XML files - support overwriting Locations when importing from XML files (hold down CONTROL key when selecting Import -> Locations command) - added CountryCode column to Locations table (this allows locations for multiple countries in the same Locations list) - added DWS script function GetDataFolder - Location window: widened latitude and longitude fields; use spin edit for timezone - contacts window: increased drop down height of Label combo box on Extras page - added "All users share same settings" option in Options window, Advanced page (when checked, settings are stored in common ini file) - gracefully handle problems writing to line monitor log - added mute toolbar button (duplicates functionality of "Disable sound (including speech) in all actions" checkbox on Sound page of Options window) - when tray icon is clicked while Options window or another modal window is open, bring app to foreground and appropriate window to front - added program font setting (Options window, General page) (see size note in item below) - use current system window title font (note that in some windows a smaller size of the selected font will be used if the selected size is too big for the window) - in Options -> Devices -> Whozz Calling? -> "Enable Whozz Calling? device on:", added option to scan for more serial ports (initially only 16 serial ports are scanned) - added "Notes" column to available columns in the contacts list - use activation codes instead of old registration method.

Please include your registered email address in the request. http://ascendis.com/callerid/support_form.php - don't use or free db accessors created from main thread while executing scripts (fixes potential exceptions) - fixed problem with some modems under TAPI when they only report the phone number which, within certain timing constraints, could result in a call being reported as two calls, one with correct phone number and one unknown - fixed EOverflow exception when speaking through USB sound device for one user - fixed potential problem with configured volume not respected around speech - removed SAPI4 speech support (as a consequence of other speech fixes) - reduced period of time after user interacts with call list during which program will not automatically select new call from 10 seconds to 3 - improved Whozz Calling? initialization when device is busy when we start - Whozz Calling 2: erase memory while downloaded calls are being processed - workaround divide-by-zero exception that can occur under Windows Vista when speaking synchronously (SpeakWait command) - added SpeakWait command to DWS scripts (it waits for speech to finish before returning) (SpeakWait is only compatible with SAPI5 voices) - fixed problem downloading Whozz Calling? 2 memory calls when number of calls in memory was more than system could process fast enough - trap and log exceptions when repositioning contacts list after changing a contact (rare, but one user encountered it) - automatically disable detail mode for Whozz Calling? devices reporting too many on-hook messages (as can happen when too many phone devices are connected while device is using voltage detection) - fixed potential exception when deleting all contacts - fixed exception when deleting last (or all) calls - Repair Database command: fixed handling of two phone records that resolve to the same "match" phone number - Delete Duplicate Calls command: ignore milliseconds when comparing calls -- this fixes problem where calls imported from exported files (which don't include milliseconds) were not recognized as duplicates - trap and report exceptions when exporting - fixed potential startup problem (reported by one user) - show hourglass cursor when rebuilding contacts list - fixed bug where an action that deleted a call could try to delete the call more than once, although subsequent attempts would fail - added message type descriptor to Activity Log entries - added "Find in Contacts" command to calls and calls report lists right-click menu - fixed problem where dates in grids were occasionally displayed in wrong format - fixed exception when editing, changing, and saving a contact while viewing the contact list - fixed polling case with multiple calls from same phone number where phone number already existed on client - minor changes to "Item Toolbar" items' visibility / state / position for consistency - trap exceptions when getting window handle to bring app to top on new call - "Show or Add in Outlook" action now specifies CompanyName field in Outlook contact and files phone number according to the phone number description in the Ascendis Caller ID contact if one exists (to add the new Outlook actions to an existing database, hold down the CONTROL key while selecting File -> Import -> Actions, then choose the "Outlook Actions.xml" file in the Ascendis Caller ID program folder) - hide many context menu items when multiple calls or contacts are selected - added "Dial Phone" toolbar button for Calls, Calls Report, and Contacts lists - added "Perform Action" to call context menu - gracefully handle modems that return unexpected voice compressor syntax (like MultiTech Systems MT5634ZPX-PCI) - use display name in popup notification window instead of first name + last name - improved outgoing call information detection for TAPI devices - doubled amount of Line Monitor data kept while running - fix for problems displaying images in display panel on some systems - attempted fix for rare exception on shutdown when using YAC - made Status page the default page when showing the Network form - increased default modem call timeout to 30 seconds in direct mode (this can avoid phantom "No Caller Information" call after valid caller id capture on slow systems; we recommend direct-mode modem users increase the value manually since the new default won't override existing settings) - use configured modem call timeout in direct mode - reduced possibility of modem call timing out in direct mode because modem message had been received but not yet processed (resulting in a single call being interpreted as two calls) - Options window, Network page, Web/TiVo server sub-page: disable web root controls unless web server is enabled; added help clarifying web root setting - fixed problem where system dialogs (font, color, etc) could be hidden behind other windows when switching back to Ascendis Caller ID or when call is received - added Print button to Find windows - Outlook actions now look for caller in contact folder and subfolders - Edit Action window: select all text in script memo (Advanced actions) when CTRL+A is pressed in it - fixed bug where COM methods in advanced scripts could fail because COM library wasn't initialized - added INCLUDE_ACTION directive to DWS scripts - when deleting a contact, use display name, first name + last name, or company in confirmation as needed - added DWS script functions ContactCount, PhoneCount - fixed problem deleting data files in uninstaller when requested to do so - added HTML call notification window (select in Options window, Notification page; right-click on notification window (use Preview if desired) for configuration options) (NOTE: this uses a built-in HTML control, and not the Internet Explorer, Mozilla, or other browser engine. JavaScript is not supported, and CSS support is limited.) - added CallInfo fields PictureHeight, PictureWidth - added script commands GetSettingBool, GetSettingStr - made script function "CallCount" thread safe - don't used cached web page if html template was subsequently modified - reopen devices when resuming after sleep - default to '0.0.0.0' in network settings server bind addresses - fixed problem printing single call - update call duration in calls list during call (for Whozz Calling? and other devices that track call duration) - log messages when a second instance is started - added date format info to Technical Support Report - track and note changes in date format in Activity Log - reduce font size of progress bar in status bar (used for report progress) to better fit some displays - don't change the display panel to show an outgoing call if an incoming call is in progress - don't change the display panel to a different existing call when the status of the call changes - added option to only display contact window for known contacts when "Open contact window for each call" is enabled in Options/Notification - trap rare exceptions when displaying a message and attempt to display using alternate methods - Rebuild Phones command: filter non-numeric characters from phone numbers not containing letters as is done when calls are first received (the Rebuild Phones command is normally hidden; to see it hold down the control and shift keys while clicking the File menu) - network log: added line separator commands to button bar context menu - dynamically widen "active calls" pane of status bar if needed - added "Calls for this Contact" and "Calls for this Number" reports (right- click on call or contact in Calls, Calls Report, and Contact lists to access) 2.3.0.0 - 2010-04-23 -------------------- - workaround HiRO H50113 modem bug in direct mode with respect to CID reporting - added CTRL+T shortcut to test action in Calls and Calls Report - added CTRL+M shortcut for the Line Monitor - automatically backup database before repair - always use CTRL+A for Edit Action, CTRL+E for Edit Contact, and CTRL+K for Edit Call Notes regardless of which list is showing, if the command is allowed - Find commands: restore find window if minimized - fixed bug in Contact window where changing only the action and closing the window by pressing the Enter key didn't save the change - hang up after action that plays sound file(s) on Skype if action didn't hang up (now the same as other devices) - convert sound files to Skype format before playing (improves sound file compatibility with Skype, which only supports PCM/16kHz/16-bit) - added "Duplicate Action" command to Actions context menu - automatically resize pictures when pasted or loaded into Contact window (pictures are resampled to a height of 200 pixels if larger unless "Autosize Images" is disabled on display panel context menu) - show progress window when waiting for scripts to complete while shutting down or changing modem settings - increased network client polling speed and responsiveness - polling: don't send the same auxiliary records more than once during a single poll - allow use while actions are running (actions now run in separate threads) - sped up network logging - trap and report exceptions when rebuilding database - implemented delete in Find Calls window (press the "DEL" key to delete a call) - fixed problem with 'New Calls' count when deleting multiple calls from calls report with mixed 'New' status - mark calls report dirty when 'New' is changed in a call - added fixed width font checkbox to Line Monitor - trap registry exceptions when "AttachedTo" registry entry for modem is the wrong data type (one user with a non-standard device reported this error) - added limited PhoneSound support in direct mode. This has been tested mostly successfully in the following OS/modem configurations: o Windows 7 64-bit with Zoom 3049C (best sound), Zoom 3095, HiRO H50113 (driver v.2.2.98.0; sound quality varies; caller id unreliable) o Windows Vista 64-bit with Zoom 3049C (best sound), Zoom 3095, and HiRO H50113 (driver v.2.1.88.0; sound quality varies) o Windows Vista 32-bit with Zoom 3049C (best sound), Zoom 3095, and HiRO H50113 (driver v.2.1.88.0; sound quality varies) o Windows XP with Zoom 3049C (best sound), Zoom 3095, and HiRO H50113 (driver 2.1.70; sound poor) Notes: - The HiRO H50113 is an external USB winmodem and seems pickier than the hardware Zoom modems. You may or may not have luck with it. The most consistent results seem to be with sounds in 4bit IMA ADPCM format. - If your modem can't play a particular sound file or ACID can't convert it to a compatible format, check the Line Monitor for a list of formats your modem supports (search for "ModemFormatID"; the list may be appear cryptic, but it contains the information you need to make an optimally compatible sound file). Use your favorite sound editor or Audacity, a free, open-source sound recorder and editor: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ - If TAPI mode works better for your modem and PhoneSound, use it. - support filtering phone numbers from device to remove unwanted digits (such as outgoing line selection): To use, add a phone format rule (Options window, Format page) and include an 'F' in the position of the digit to remove. Be sure to make the conditions explicit so numbers that shouldn't be altered aren't (to remove a leading digit, you will probably need a "Length = n" condition AND a "Number starts with m" rule). - phone number formats: detect changes to format conditions and rebuild phone records - reopen modems configured for serial mode if "Prefer raw caller id" was changed in Options window (device properties) - don't allow viewing network window when networking is disabled - added help for DWS date and time functions - added DWS functions AnsiSameStr, AnsiSameText - when receiving actions from an ACID server, gracefully handle case where an action with the same name but a different unique identifier exists - Options window: when user enables Whozz Calling? device, adjust the number of lines monitored (and tell user) if insufficient registrations are installed - fixed problem where device might not be opened even though it was enabled in the Options window, Devices page: the problem happened when another device with the same TAPI ID and name had been used by an ACID server to which the computer was a client - fixed hangup command for some modems (like HiRO H50113 (Agere chipset)) in TAPI mode - only include unused TAPI devices in Line Monitor during initialization if the total number of TAPI devices is less than or equal to 10 (used TAPI devices are always listed) -- this will shorten the Line Monitor in extreme cases so it retains more diagnostic data - Line Monitor: include device name in entries - Whozz Calling? calls in memory (for units with memory): corrected call start and end times (they were off by call duration); use previous year if call day and month is more than 2 weeks in the future (units do not store year of call) - sped up Line Monitor processing when displayed and enabled - added Find function to Script Editor (press CTRL+F to access) - modem repair: support repairing modems already open directly - modem repair: open modem directly if TAPI open fails - when performing an action for a call, log the action name to Line Monitor - modem repair: added raw cid support - modem repair: fixed MESG response generation when NMBR response <> "NMBR" - recognize "DDN_NMBR" as caller's phone number in TAPI bypass mode - trap and report exception if a problem prevents a TAPI line from being accessed during communications spinup - fixed bug where an outgoing call placed through a modem but not through Ascendis Caller ID would trigger the action for "No Caller Information" unless configured to ignore outgoing calls - added support for raw caller id for modems when not using TAPI (check "Prefer raw caller id" in Device Properties window from Devices page of Options window) - remember "Fixed width font" setting in Activity Log window between executions - fixed problem with some modems under TAPI that change call handles during the call that could cause a single call to be interpreted as two calls - fixed potential problem with modems under TAPI on slow or busy machines that could cause a single call to be interpreted as two calls - added Find function to Line Monitor and Activity Log windows (press CTRL+F to access) - fixed problem accessing modem responses in modem analysis part of support report on normal user accounts in Vista and Windows 7 - fixed race condition with realtime network clients which could eventually prevent communications with clients and proper application shutdown - added DWS script functions IPos, Contains, ContainsText - added CallInfo.DeviceName (synonym for CallInfo.RawLine) - when importing or deleting locations, update the calls list immediately - when importing contacts, don't split first name or last name fields - fixed problem importing contacts from CSV file when LastName was the only name field provided - added documentation for StringReplace to DWS String Library topic in Help - added following advanced DWS action functions: GetTempPath, GetAppFolder, FileExists, StartsWith, EndsWith - disable Ctrl+D shortcut (for dialing) when the command is hidden (fixes exception in that case) - added "PerformAction" command to advanced DWS actions - Edit Action window: when an action type is changed to advanced, automatically add "//LANGUAGE=DWS" if the script is empty - fixed problem when polled by version 1 network clients - added "RunWait" command to advanced DWS actions - added "Edit Action" and "Add Action" commands to item toolbar when Action list is visible - after changing an action's name, position the Action list on the action - after creating a new action, position the Action list on the new action - Options window, Devices page, Skype sub-page: disallow enabling Skype if all registrations are already in use - added settings for sending contacts and actions to network clients - added setting for overwriting local actions when received from network servers - fixed rare "RichEdit line insertion error" when editing a script - fixed problem where a small notification window would show the wrong call data if the call was deleted while the window was showing - when testing an action from the Action list, load the test caller's contact info if a contact is defined - added ContactCallsMade, ContactCallsReceived, ContactFirstCalled, ContactLastCalled, PhoneCallsMade, PhoneCallsReceived, PhoneFirstCalled, PhoneLastCalled to CallInfo object 2.2.0.0 - 2009-09-25 -------------------- - added Ini and Classes libraries to DWS scripts; see DWS manual for usage (manual available on DWS web site: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dws/ ) - help: added PhoneSound - help: added link to DWS on web and suggestion for checking DWS manual for additional DWS functions - when importing CSV contacts, fill missing FirstName, LastName, DisplayName fields from provided field(s) (RawName, DisplayName, FirstName, LastName) - when importing CSV calls, fill missing FirstName, LastName, DisplayName fields from provided field(s) (RawName, DisplayName, FirstName, LastName) - properly handle case where no CR or LF follows last directive in HTML templates - fixed Windows 7 repair problems: changing modem init string to enable caller id and restarting after repair - trap and log exceptions when saving contact image to temp file; this happened for one user and could conceivably happen if an anti-virus program was scanning an existing file at the time - fixed call note printing (including when no printer is defined) - autosize images in display panel (to disable, right-click on display panel and remove the checkmark next to "Autosize Images") - added auto import contacts option to delete contacts without phone numbers - added notification window setting to show the edit buttons - added Copy All command (on right-click menu) to small notification window - added buttons to small notification window to edit call notes or contact - fixed problems repairing modems which use 64-bit registry entries in Vista 64 - fixed a memory leak when the contact view was updated (became apparent when Contact list was visible and enough calls were detected) - if an unsupported device type is found in the device list (this should only happen if the list becomes corrupt), show a helpful message and continue - contact window: confirm cancel if changes have been made (and would be lost) - fixed exception when editing action from contacts grid context menu - added Description, DisplayName (synonym for Name), Title, ContactLabel, ContactNotes, Extra, Email, and CallLabel fields to CallInfo object - renamed Notes field on CallInfo object to CallNotes - support importing Description field for contacts - small notification window: added Description field;
