==========



* SysWOW64 support added when building from Windows 7/7(SP1)/8/8.1/8.1 

  Update 1 sources (should also work with some Windows Server 2008/2012 

  sources). The 5-Wow64 script was used as a base to identify file and 

  registry dependencies. Credit therefore goes to everyone involved in 

  the 5-Wow64.script (including JFX, Lancelot, 2aCD, ChrisR and "...to 

  everybody on the BootLand forums for helping on the debuggind and 

  improvement of this script."). Select 4] SysWOW64 in the main project 

  script options to add SysWOW64. 



* UEFI support has been added.



* CloneDisk script added



* Virtual Keyboard (FreeVK) script added.



* A number of changes have been made to the core script - wimlib-imagex now 

  uses file lists when extracting dependencies from install.wim/boot.wim. 

  This significantly improves build time, but has meant that any program 

  scripts containing paths for file dependencies has required editing 

  due to wimlib preserving directory structure (when extracting from file 

  lists).   



* Fixed a bug when x64 local sources are used (in Create a cache from WinRE 

  and the ADK scripts). Due to the way in which SysWOW64 redirects to the 

  \Windows\SysWOW64 directory when running WinBuilder on a 64-bit system the 

  file dependencies were being cached from \Windows\SysWOW64 instead of 

  \Windows\System32



* Wimlib updated to 1.7.0. The amended update add command 

  significantly reduces build time when the INJECT method is used.



* Create ISO script updated. It now contains several options 

  including Flat Boot and RAM Boot or multiboot RAM and Flat boot. 

  It's also possible to create a BIOS or UEFI bootable ISO - or

  BIOS and UEFI bootable.



* Create USB updated to include the option to RAM Boot or Flat Boot

  or multiboot RAM and Flat boot. UEFI support is also included. This 

  script will not work if running WinBuilder on a Windows 2000/XP/2003

  system. 



* Create USB (GPT UEFI) script added. This script will not work if

  running WinBuilder on a Windows 2000/XP/2003 system. Only fixed type 

  disks are supported. 



* Added error check to the ADK For Win 8 (and 8.1) scripts - these 

  cannot be executed if running WinBuilder on a Windows 2000/XP/2003

  system. 



* Project.Settings.ini is added to the build listing all programs

  and project settings used in the current build. 



* Project documentation updated - minor updates throughout and two

  new sections added (MultiBoot WinPE and UEFI, BIOS, GPT and MBR)



A special thanks to alacran for requesting UEFI and SysWOW64 support 

in MistyPE and for beta testing and feedback to actually get them

working. 



Due to the number of changes made in this build it is entirely possible 

that errors may have unintentionally crept in. Please report any issues 

(or positive feedback) on the support topic at reboot.pro -

==========



* Added a number of additional options in the core script - 

  these are all enabled by default. The new options will 

  remove a number of unsupported options from the right-click 

  context menu. Thanks to reboot.pro forum member farda for

  these suggestions.



* Added "Open with" workaround for WinPE 4.0/5.0. See -

  http://reboot.pro/topic/19732-help-with-open-with-in-winpe-4050/



* WinFE settings are now seperate to the Shell script - but are 

  still mandatory. They have been moved to a new script 

  \Programs.winfe.script



* Option to use either SANPolicy 3 or 4 (in new WinFE script) -

  SANPolicy 3 is automatically used with WinPE 2.*/3.* sources as

  SANPolicy 4 is only supported in WinPE 4.0/5.0.



* File dependencies (to be extracted from install.wim or

  copied from the host Operating System) are handled in one

  (hidden) script -  Core\required.files.script. This will 

  make it simpler to implement any future file dependencies. 



* Added a script to copy files and folders from a local 

  directory - allowing the easy addition of third party files. 

  A menu entry will open the directory these files were copied 

  to. 



* Added Tools\Create USB script - it's now possible to 

  create a MistyPE bootable UFD during the build process.

  Use with caution - see documentation for more details. 

  Tested with Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8.1.



* Added ADK For Win 8 (and 8.1) scripts. Refer to documents.

  NOTE - this has only been tested using Windows 7 (SP1) 

  and Windows 8.1.



* Wallpaper support (.jpg) added for all builds - this 

  feature was not previously working with WinPE 4/5. See

  Programs\Wallpaper script.



* Wimlib-ImageX updated to version 1.6.2



* Added build 6.3.9600 (Windows 8.1 - Final) to the list  

  of tested/working sources.



* Added the following scripts -

	- WinHex

	- DMDE

	- Opera - 64-bit support added.

	- Keyboardlayouts



* Included FAU in the download. This is redistributed

  with the permission of the author (GMG Systems Inc) -

  refer to the project documentation.



* Program scripts now contain menu entries - this should

  make it easier to add new program scripts. Previously 

  all menu entries were contained in the shell script - 

  resulting in multiple script edits for any new programs 

  added.



* Various tweaks in core script 

	- "FileDelete,"%Cache%\temp\*.*" has been added to

	  to ensure that cached batch files and .ini files 

	  are deleted earlier in the build process. Without  

	  this fix there are errors in some very limited 

	  curcumstances.

	- Added verification check from registry files  

	  extracted from boot.wim - only used if the 

	  wimlib-imagex checks fail.



* Script structure has been changed for all Program scripts. 

  Hopefully results in better error checking for any missing 

  files.



* Browse for folder support is added by individual program 

  scripts even if this option is not selected in the Core 

  script. Resulting in a more modular approach (see 

  "http://reboot.pro/topic/19042-modular-apps-philosophy-for-winpe/"

  for the philosophy behind this approach).



* Documentation updated - added section on using the ADK 

  For Win 8.1.
