announcing version 0.4.0 of the 'df3 tools'for working with DF3 files,
consisting of a C language library, a "Swiss army knife" type utility, and a
database virtual table extension.

since the previous release, the library has gained two functions to make working
with 16-bit and 32-bit DF3s easier, and lost one bug -- file modification times
had not been recorded.

the utility program has a new command, list, to dump selected DF3 contents to
stdout, in a number of formats including one that's template-based, user
defined.  the importing of .png data has been improved to allow the processing
of colour images.

the Sqlite3 virtual table extension now provides an "introspection" SQL function
which reports details of the underlying DF3 file(s).

the software should build without warnings or errors on any POSIX-ish 64-bit os,
any existing installation of the 'df3 tools' must be uninstalled first.

the files are available for download via these links:

the library, needs to be installed first:


the utility:


and the SQlite3 extension:


as always, hints, tips, and constructive criticisms welcome.

enjoy, jr.
