Thanks for the update.

I must say Zydodact has the best preferences dialog I have ever seen.  You should patent this.

There are many new features, so please read the revised documentation included with the download. Also, the most annoying bug has been fixed, and now pasting a serial key into the dialog no longer causes issues.

> * Added compatibility with mobile platforms in the Generator stack in case you want to compile it into a standalone in order to create serial keys from a mobile device. This is not compatible with previous versions.
> * Added an "Email key" button to the generator stack. Works on all platforms including mobile. It launches the default email app and puts the User Name and Serial Key into the body of an otherwise blank email. You must supply the To: address, subject, etc.
> * Added email templates. If there is a folder named "templates" in the stack folder (or resources folder on mobile) the template is merged with the key code data for emailing. Added a version check on preOpenCard in the Setup app. If a newer version is available, Zygodact offers to go to the download page.
> * Added a check to avoid overwriting a set of files to a folder where older files already exist.
> * Fixed the bug where the Register button did not enable when pasting a serial key.
> * Updated documentation. Please read for more details.
> NOTE: New registration stacks created with version 2.0.1 are not compatible with older versions; that is, you can't replace the Register stack with a newer copy without also sending the user a new serial key. If this is a problem, please contact me privately.
