New SlickRun Beta, New Mezer Build

SlickRun v4.0.4 beta has been released here: http://www.bayden.com/dl/sr-setup-beta.exe
The only meaningful change in this version is the addition of a new token you can use in the idle display's custom date formatting-- %wk% will be replaced with the week # of the current year.
This has been a semi-popular request over the years as such information is commonly used by a variety of professionals. Unfortunately, I think each industry may prefer slightly different behaviors, so for now I've implemented just one to try it out.

The first week of the year that includes a Monday will be treated as Week #1. If January 1st falls on a Tuesday, for instance, then Jan1-5 will be treated as Week #0. On the other hand, if January 1st falls on a Monday, then there is no "week 0" that year. Unfortunately, there's no good way for SlickRun to know about holidays, so systems that require such knowledge cannot be presently supported.

I've also released an updated version [v2.0.5] of Mezer Tools @ (www.bayden.com/mezer). The only difference in the new build is that both Mezer and Docker.dll opt-in to DEP/ASLR. Unfortunately, because docker.dll is in constant use, the only way to update it is to uninstall Mezer, reboot, and then install the newest Mezer.

Hello Eric,
thanks for the outstanding utility.
I use it every day!

The only thing I was missing in the program was the pop up menu of matches.

I just found that it was already created and can be accessible hitting SHIFT+DOWN.

If you could make the menu more accessible, It would be perfect.

I think the menu must show up when you start typing and you could select an item by UP/DOWN buttons like in google search field.

In the current version UP/DOWN buttons manage the command history, but if you already start typing something it would be better to see matches, isn't it?

Alt+F will also trigger the matching list.

I would find it very annoying and distracting to have the match list appear constantly, and it would significantly impact performance. However, in the future, I may do something similar to satisfy your request.

Thanks for the tip regarding Alt+F. Such an indispensable feature in my opinion.

I would look forward to that auto-populating menu feature if you end up finding a way to integrate it without impacting performance.

SlickRun is outstanding. Thanks for your shared, hard work.
