v1.3.0: Major rewrites of list_assoc_mime and desk_path functions to comply with latest XDG standards for MIME-type associations and default applications. In associated applications menu, no longer strip any leading subdirectory name followed by a hyphen; desk_path function can now find a desktop file in a subdirectory.

v1.2.0: Optionally can now associate applications by matching regex to file/URI name in configuration file. New option -n and configuration variable $assocname control usage of associations by file/URI name. Fixed bug causing loop in fallback menu when an alternative configuration directory is specified.

v1.1.0: Some configuration and usage changes: Option -o and configuration variable $order replace option -u and $usage. Launcher menu can now be reordered on the fly by inputting a ^ followed by one of the ordering arguments {u|f|r|n|N}.

2014-05-23 v1.0.1: Now escape regex metacharacters, / and ; to allow arbitrary launcher names and tags. Changed default field separator in launchers file to tab character instead of semicolon. Fixed bug: when launcher name already existed and name differed from that suggested.

2014-05-20 v1.0.0: Initial release version, forked from fyr 4.10.
