Difference between TOS 4.00 > 4.04

All the literature I can find on the interweb seem to bundle these versions into one for it's description.

As there were obviously multiple releases from 4.00 to 4.04 does anyone know what the actual differences were?

Good question.Do know of some bugs between 4.01 and 4.04 that was fixed with the odd auto folder proggie.
But never gotten the hang of what they actually were,so hooking into the thread if someone knows of them specifically.

TOS 4.0 has a white back ground on all GEM dialogs. Only the buttons have the grey 3D look. That’s the most visible change. I have TOS 4.0 and 4.04 on 2 different machines.

4.x TOSes before 4.04 had a data destroying bug. If you care about data on your HDD, use 4.04
