    3.22.0 Changes:
    * Compare directories enhancements:
    Fix snapshot file to actually load and save (with/without subdirectories) properly.
    Toggle of include subdirectories leaves snapshot file loaded. Added an indicator
    (textbox) that a list (snapshot) file is loaded.Ticket 490 (Gregg)
    Added optional confirmation dialogs for delete move and copy Ticket 277 (Gregg)
    Added EA compare option Ticket 80 (Gregg)
    Fixed some minor interspace/display issues (Steven, Gregg)
    * Fixed the readonly warning on delete code and enhanced the dialog it now has
    focus on
    opening, accel keys, defaults to no and Esc key cancels operation. Rework readonly
    code so it works with move to trashcan enabled Ticket 506 (Gregg)
    Suppress readonly warning for delete of temporary files. Ticket 497 (Gregg)
    * Changes to get 7z archives to work with AV2. Includes an ugly hack to compensate for
    the fact that the compressed size is missing from some files in some archives.
    This results in the filename being put in the nsize variable which then must be passed
    to fname. Fortunately it displays compressed size as 0 since it can't deal with the non
    numeric text string. A file name that is all numeric will show odd results.
    Ticket 492 (Gregg)
    * Changes to fix .tar.gz list because of changes in tar 1.20 (maybe earlier). Ticket 493
    * Added lzip support Ticket 494 (Gregg)

    archive of the new type as a template to the help file. Ticket 21 (Gregg)
