* Improved: SFTP: Increased logging when a user-account fails to login via SFTP
* Improved: SFTP: Public/Private Key-Generator for user-accounts with SFTP enabled
x Fixed: UI: if the previous instance crashed, it was possible for the last "UI page" to be saved with an incorrect value, causing a Crash-Report (bpftpserver.ini::FtpServer::LastBreadCrumb==0)
x Fixed: SERVICE-MODE: added logic to prevent the web-browser from being launched when running as a SERVICE
x Fixed: LICENSE-CODE: In high volume installations, too many calls to VerifyKey could result in corrupting memory (similar code identified in 2013.1.0.8) and cause the installation to not be "registered" resulting in "421 INFO: ftp-client connection failed.

SUMMARY: Fixed APPCRASH/Access Violation
x Fixed: Activity -> User Activity: Fixed Access-Violation which could be triggered by rapidly connecting/disconnecting ftp-clients (also affects normal activity, however much less frequently).
x Fixed: Windows APPCRASH: Resolved a problem in ftp-engine (classic, non secure) in which the QUIT command is sent by the ftp-client and the connection is severed before BPFTP Server responds to the ftp-client with an OK (reproduced with ncftpput and ctrl-c)
* Improved: INTERNAL-CODE: clean-up code after linter discovered some inconsistencies
Version 2018.0.0.41 - 2018-JAN-24
SUMMARY: Multi-Homed IP, Logging Disk/Screen, User Banned-Files, OpenSSL Update, Deprecated Private P2P
* Changed: INTERNAL-CODE: new compiler D10.2.2.2004

Version 2017.2.0.35 - 2017-MAR-06
SUMMARY: Fixes to stabalize running as SERVICE. Corrections to Server Monitor -> Upload|Download Summary. OpenSSL updated. Internal code changes.
* Fixed: Management -> Settings -> System Service: Corrected an issue in which the SERVICE would not quit (and allow GUI to take over), if ftp-clients were connected
* Fixed: Management -> Settings -> System Service: Found a case when the GUI is closed, the SERVICE fails to start due to exclusive WRITE-LOCK on bpftpserver.ini
* Improved: Management -> Settings -> System Service: Found multiple occurences where an exception could interfere with controlling the SERVICE due to modal dialogs being displayed (wrapped all message-dialogs with code to prevent display, if running as a SERVICE)
x Fixed: Server Monitor -> Upload|Download Summary: Corrected a problem in which data is not preserved when running as a SERVICE
x Fixed: Server Monitor -> Upload|Download Summary: corrected a problem in which the files were growing exponentially by appending the data each time to the file (when it should be overwritten) "bpftpserver-common-(uploads|downloads).ini"
* Improved: SecureFTP: Sanity checks with logging if FTPS certificate files are not found
* Fixed: INTERNAL-CODE: found several cases where operating in DEBUG mode would cause the bpftpserver-uacadmin.exe utility to fail due to exclusive WRITE-LOCK on bpftpserver.ini
* Improved: INTERNAL-CODE: OnStartUp, added spin-lock code to wait for exclusve WRITE-LOCK on bpftpserver.ini, in order to give the OS time for parent processes to terminate
* Improved: INTERNAL-CODE: additional INI Storage routines for real data-types, as date/time was being used for LogWatch interval
* Improved: INTERNAL-CODE: additional debug-loggging during "Configuring..."
* Improved: INTERNAL-CODE: moved free()'ing of objects to *before* the SERVICE is created, as some objects save their state at free(). If the SERVICE is started before the save, then an invalid state could be reached. This was part of the reason for exponential growth of "bpftpserver-common-(uploads|downloads).ini"
* Improved: INTERNAL-CODE: substantial reordering of start-up code to facilitate UI logging of problems
* Improved: INTERNAL-CODE: removed OLDCODE comment sections
x Fixed: QUICK-FIX: new common dialog-box was only displaying during SERVICE, not during GUI. Which is exactly opposite, pulled .34 and released .35 immediately.
Version 2017.2.0.33 - 2017-FEB-06
SUMMARY: Many UI fixes that include UI elements that didn't respond when clicked and MSIE mistakenly being used as the web-browser
x Fixed: Group Manager: corrected right-click, context menu, for "Copy Group-List to Clipboard"
x Fixed: INTERNAL-CODE: correct *many* unwired events in the UI that had cropped up with the refactoring to Frames (v2014.x)
x Fixed: INTERNAL-CODE: moved opening web-pages to linkable function
x Fixed: INTERNAL-CODE: refactored the saving of saved position/size information for UI elements (FormStorageSavedValues)
x Fixed: LICENSE-CODE: Default web-browser will now be loaded for expired licenses (vs using default MSIE)
x Fixed: UI: OnMinimized to TrayIcon, corrected a problem where the Log wasn't suspended if OptionsLogDisabledWhenMinimized==TRUE
x Fixed: User Manager: UI corrected a problem that prevented the restoration of user-customized width for user-list
x Fixed: User Manger -> Edit User -> Group Name: corrected a problem that prevented the enabling of a group for a user
Version 2017.2.0.32 - 2017-JAN-20
x Fixed: Management -> Settings -> Advanced -> Allow 0 byte files: When a ZERO byte file is uploaded, and this setting is ON (DEFAULT), every subsequently uploaded file (in the same session) would append (byte-for-byte) into the first file (0 byte file).
x Fixed: Management -> Settings: Resolved a problem in which the last depressed toolbutton is show, but the content is for a different toolbutton. Close BPS when viewing Management -> Settings -> Advanced, start BPS again, "Advanced" will be depressed, but it will display the content for "General".
x Fixed: Server Monitor -> Upload Summary: If "Allow 0 byte files" (default) is enabled, and a 0 byte file is uploaded, the filesize will now show "0" (vs "-1). Conversly, if "Allow 0 byte files" is disabled (not default), then files uploaded with 0 bytes, will say "-1" (as the file wasn't allowed and doesn't exist on the file-system).
x Fixed: Server Monitor -> Upload|Download Summary -> (right-click): "Clear List": Previously, this would just remove all items from the list, but would appear again as soon as you went back. Now it will stay cleared, until the software is restarted.
x Fixed: Server Monitor -> Upload|Download Summary -> (right-click): renamed "Stop Tracking" to "Tracking Enabled", as this more appropriately describes the behavior. Added a confirmation dialog as well.
x Fixed; Server Monitor -> Upload|Download Summary -> (right-click) -> "Tracking Enabled|Clear List": Added elilipsis to show a dialog will follow clicking menu item.

x Fixed: UNINSTALL: Corrected a problem in which uninstalling the software will present an error from bpftpserver-uacadmin.exe saying " Internal Action Failed.\n\nService-Uninstall: Service is not installed." This error would then be presented X times, where X is the number of times the software was installed
* Improved: VersionInfo: Changed the program description for two executables in order to give better descriptions in Windows's TaskManager (bpftpserver-uacadmin.exe and bpftpserver-service.exe)
* Improved: INSTALLER: Added a timeout when attempting to stop the SERVICE. Previously it could have looped forever if there was a problem in stopping the SERVICE.
Version 2017.2.0.30 - 2017-JAN-10
x Fixed: START-UP: Corrected an EAccessViolation that was being triggered on start-up
x Fixed: UNINSTALL: Corrected a problem in which bpftpserver-uacadmin was being called incorrectly to uninstall the Windows System Service support

Version 2017.2.0.29 - 2017-JAN-09
