Usability: When pressing the PAUSE button, the status bar now reflects this fact, and the Green check or Red X is properly displayed if the last running conversion job finished.
Usability: Users no longer have to press REWIND if the last run went to 100% completion.
Usability: When pressing the PAUSE button, the mouse now restores back to the arrow as it should.
Error Logging: If users pressed PAUSE during a conversion job, and then clicked CONVERT, any errors logged from this point had an incorrect 'Conversion Job Number'.
Command Line: Should run much faster now that many ini parameters are not being unnecessarily loaded.

User interface (not command line): It is now impossible to enter a double quotation character (e.g. ") whenever specifying a file.
When loading a 'Conversion Job', it would not inform you that a target folder did not exist, and when trying to run this conversion job, it would report a General Failure. Now, the directory will be created for you, and if it can't be, a proper error message will be reported.
1.04 to 1.05 (3/2/2007)
