Release Notes: This release includes updates to correctly read the server list from client1.napigator.com/servers.php, fixes for a couple of bugs that led to incorrect reporting in the Problems dialog, and a fix for a bug that could cause search results to be misplaced within the results tree.
Release Notes: Support for a customized application identifier (similar to a Web browser's user-agent string), the ability to regroup query results in the result tree, and more verbose error messages.
Release Notes: A new ability to poll busy/failed servers, and saving the last size/location of the main query window.
Release Notes: This release adds a servers_file property that allows Napsack to read Napigator data from a file, reimplements the search engine to support canceling and event notification, adds a status/progress bar, and right-aligns numerical values in graphical search results.
