The following is a full list of fixes and additions of Beta 2 over Beta 1:

New Features:

* Hotspot buttons now also accept items dragged from NextSTART menus and WorkShelf.


* On themes where sub-menus should open aligned to the parent's titlebar, context menus could be too short when close to the reserved screen area at the bottom of the screen.

* the Single and Double line settings for the startbar section separator were both displaying a double line.

* Context Menus of Hotspot buttons were broken by Beta 1.

* Re-wrote the context menu code which seemed to be causing some Access Violation errors on occasion.

* The 'Tip of the Day' dialog could be resized.

* The 'Disable Sounds' and 'Disable Animations' options in the Global Preferences tab were reversed (checked for on and unchecked for off).

* NextSTART was crashing in the Menu Editor and Item Properties dialog if you selected a URL type item.

* URL items were not displaying the proper icon.

System Requirements:

WorkShelf and NextSTART will run under Win95/98/ME and NT4/2000/XP.
