Dear CDex users!
My goal is to improve the CDex development as much as possible.
Therefore a major boost within the development has to be done.
New Windows versions are released and still many users want support for Windows 95.
Although it is 2007 now, there is a possibility to support these old Windows versions as long as possible.
At least within the CDex 1.x version. This means that with the release of CDex 2 the support for some
of the old Windows versions can be quit.
There is still the possibility to provide support for these systems, using the
Microsoft Layer for Unicode, but with limited support for these platforms.
In the case of a huge demand for these old Windows versions, I will work out a possibility
to still support these versions.
Many CDex users send in feature requests and also bug reports. A lot of great ideas
have been collected in the past and have to be implementend now and I am really keen
to work on all of them.
Right now, I want to say: "Thank you CDex users for your great help!"
At the moment the biggest problem is my development environment and my hardware.
Many users want support for Windows Vista and also for new hardware. Especially in the past,
the demand for multi-core / multi-cpu support has dramatically increased. With this
technology move, the adoption of 64-bit systems in the computer market has increased rapidly.
Therefore the users also demand native 64-bit binaries and support for these systems.
The main goal is to improve CDex to a completely new level and make its usage even better with
an eye on the current technology development!
With more than 32,000,000 downloads, CDex has grown extremely and has a huge user base.
The daily download rate is about 10,000 downloads and the interest of the users is increasing steadily.
I am sure, that there will be even more users in the future, enjoying all the new improvements.
As CDex is a free time project, the support and coding skills are offered for free.
You can download CDex, use it, give it to friends for free, without being afraid to get in trouble or
even paying money for it - it is free software.
CDex lives with its community. The community, every single user, makes CDex special!
All the suggestions and ideas come from the community, are implemented and given back to the community, to every single user, for free.

I hope, that every single user of CDex enjoys this great software and will be able to help to improve CDex even more.
How can you help?
There are several ways: Writing documentation, helping with the translations, creating
bug reports, writing feature requests, helping other CDex users in the forum.
A great and appreciated help is to make donations.
At the moment the main problem is the hardware and also software for the development environment (Windows Vista and Visual Studio).
The following is needed
Windows Vista support (both 32-bit and 64-bit):
Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate FULL VERSION [DVD] (includes 32-bit and 64-bit DVD)
Windows development (both 32-bit and 64-bit):
Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2005
Also help and donations for hardware to use with Windows Vista are welcome.
Windows Vista is really a resource beast and eats a lot of memory.
Please visit the donation page.

Here are just some of these great ideas from the community, that can be implemented with your help
Thanks in advance to all CDex users!
Sincerely Yours, Georgy Berdyshev
