- 1.3 (January 1, 2009)
- Added support for Windows Vista
- Added support for x64 operating systems
- Removed support for Windows 9x/Me (I no longer have a machine to test it on)

- 1.2 (November 19, 2005)

- 1.1 (April 4, 2005)
- Progress dialogs now have minimize buttons.
- PerigeeCopy now shows progress information in the title bar and
- Fixed copying a folder onto itself. Now if you highlight
SomeFolder and press Ctrl+C Ctrl+V, its contents will be copied to
SomeFolder, instead of copying SomeFolder\SomeFile to
- 1.0 (March 12, 2005)
- PerigeeCopy will now append a numeric suffix to a file name
instead of trying (and failing) to copy it onto itself.
- PerigeeCopy can now overwrite files in a move operation.
- 1.0 beta4 (December 14, 2004)
- Consistent with Explorer, Shift+drag moves files and Ctrl+drag
- Copying functionality has been pulled out of the shell
extension DLL and moved into a separate executable; now copy jobs don't
tie up the destination Explorer window.
- If you hold Shift while selecting "PerigeeDelete" from the
context menu, the files will be deleted regardless of the "Use recycle
- "Show what I'm about to do" option has been added to the
- Fixed Windows XP Visual Style support. (Green checkboxes
and progress bars! Woohoo!)

- 1.0 beta3 (August 10, 2004)
- My Network Places shortcuts now work properly as a copy/move

- PerigeeCopy can now use the recycle bin to delete files.
This option is enabled by default.
- 1.0 beta2 (June 12, 2004)
- PerigeeDelete can now delete read-only folders.
- Wrap text in skipped files dialog.
- Files inside folders that failed to be deleted no longer get
duplicated in the skipped files dialog every time you retry.
- Discover with mild surprise that the "Use PerigeeCopy by
default when dragging" option also causes Windows to invoke PerigeeCopy
when Ctrl+V is pressed to paste files. However, if the source and
destination drives are the same, it would move the files, even if you
pressed Ctrl+C or selected "Copy". This has been fixed.
- Discover that CopyFileEx is not implemented on Win9x/Me.
Whoops. (Microsoft's documentation is contradictory on this
point.) This means beta1 is completely unable to copy
files on these operating systems. Win9x/Me do support the
CopyFile API, but this doesn't
provide status or allow cancelling the operation. So I
implemented my own copy routine for use on Win9x/Me in beta2. I
still use CopyFileEx on Win2k/XP, however, since it takes care of file
permissions, data streams, etc.
- Use Tahoma instead of MS Sans Serif in dialogs, so Unicode
characters can be displayed correctly.
