This version has minor update only. Those who use a very old PC may see some check-box are grayed out on Option window. If someone has a high-end PC with many core CPU, MultiPar may become lighter somehow. Updating with Installer may become easier, but I'm not sure.

List of par2j's using threads is like below;
When a CPU has 2 physical cores, par2j uses 3 threads by default.
When a CPU has 3 physical cores, par2j uses 4 threads by default.
When a CPU has 4 physical cores, par2j uses 6 threads by default.
When a CPU has 6 physical cores, par2j uses 7 threads by default.
When a CPU has 8 physical cores, par2j uses 8 threads by default.
Maximum number of threads is 16 currently.

"CPU usage" slider on Option window means;
Right most = above default number.
Next from right = number of physical cores.
Middle = 3/4 of physical cores.
Next from left = 1/2 of physical cores.
Left most = 1/4 of physical cores.

A chinese user, Deng translated Help documents to Simplified Chinese. From his suggestion, I improved other language documents, too. Now they are slightly easier to read, though most users might not see, hehe. Thanks Deng for patient translation and some tests.
