Release Notes

This release shipped with the following:
1) ability to find a control by its name through Win32 API call FindWindowEx
for example,
Get-UIAWindow -Name 'some name' | Get-UIAButton -Name 'button name' -Win32
This is helpful in cases when there's in a window a lot of small controls like cells in the grid and UI Automation performs a very long query, searching through all the control tree. In modern applications, there are not much controls with handles, so that Win32 returns such a control quickly.

2) bug fix in the Start-UIARecorder cmdlet.
2.1) by default, NoUI and NoScriptHeader parameters are ON
2.2) without the -WriteCurrentPattern parameter specified, no script files were generated

3) UIAutomationSpy now can create a simple script and run it. This is for Metro testing, because UIAutomationSpy is floating over the Meto UI
NOTE: this version uses a RichText control as a script editor. This means that scripts work only if they are generated or edited directrly in the rich text box.
If you put them to the control from outside, the control adds rich text tags and scripts may not work (PowerShell engine can't go through parsing).
The next verison will be using or a simple multiline text box, a free editor, for example, TextEditor from SharpDevelop.

4) SORRY: samples for testing Metro applications will be a version later, I just hadn't time for it.
