Quote:-=[Historyfile for HDEdit/Hidden & Dangerous SaveGame Editor]=-

Entrys are in chronological order (i.e. first entry under an version is the oldest entry).
Multiple instances indicates new solutions (most of the times new solutions will have short references to/about it).
I only add the major things that I think matter - hundreds of Bugs are squashed every day. Wink
The numbering of the (internal) versions are as follow:
    1 = Major Version.
    2 = Minor Version.
    3 = Release.
    4 = Build.
Release = Commersially released number of times.
Build = Number of times a Complete re-build has been done, i.e. compiling All files. This is only needed when having done large updates in several files, not when doing small bug-fixes.

After every version-header below, there is a note of what kind of build it is:
Debug Build - internal testing, before Beta-testing.
Beta Build - Internal and External Beta testing build.
Pre-release Build - a build for a small selected group to evaluate (i.e. often to the press).
Release Build - Commercial Release build.
