Hi Russel,

This is fixed in revision 161.

If you mean the Unversioned list in the status report, it's a hyperlink
so a single click is enough. Double clicking in the working tree browser
is supported in 0.4 and later. In the current trunk, it "opens" the file
using the default application according to the OS. To edit, single click
then hit the Edit button at the bottom of the WT browser. (In 0.4 double
click launches the editor, not the default app.)

Thanks for the feedback. I'm pleased you're enjoying using Explorer!
