March 2008 - Version 6.02
The installation doesn't move anymore the data files when they are in the Program Files folder.
In case of an update, Wysigot searches for the database first in the executable's folder, then in the local AppData folder, and finally in the non local ("roaming") AppData folder.
In case of a new install, the database is installed in the local AppData of the current user.
February 2008 - Version 6.01
Editing include/exclude links in grouped properties was sometimes ignored.
• When Wysigot is installed in the default folder (program files), the data files are stored in the standard AppData folder. In case of an installation in another folder, it remains as before: everything is in Wysigot's folder to facilitate transfers between different computers. This was needed for Windows Vista.
• Some bugs fixed and enhancements.
September 2006 - Version 6.0

level as an agent.
September 2004 - Version 5.5
Changes in the refresh parameters: "Systematic" and"Scheduled" become"Periodic". This implies a packing operation on this version's first run (structural change in the database), and the impossibility then to come back to any version prior to this one. For security, even if Wysigot saves the database before each packing operation, you should backup you data before this installation.
The context menu above another element than the one selected didn't worked as expected.
Since version 5.3, the highlighting mode was not very precise.
