v14.40.0005 - 2014-08-28 17:25
    + Tree: Hold CTRL and right-click an expansion icon to get a small menu with
      all options for expansion icons.
      As you will see I added another style (Square). It works well IMO but
      it looks similar to checkboxes which is a bit confusing.
    * TreeExpansionIcon: Triangle style now draws enlarged triangles on larger
      font sizes, just like the plus/minus styles.
    ! Tab Bar: Drawing glitch on font size change under certain conditions. Fixed.
    ! Tab Bar: Icons were drawn 1 pixel too far to the left since v14.40.0002.
      Fixed.

    + Breadcrumbs: Added tweak CrumbShowBorder. Set it to 1 to show a left and
      right border in the Breadcrumb Bar according to the selected border style
      in Configuration.
        CrumbShowBorder=1
      Showing a border better matches certain extreme color configurations.
    ! SC SaveSettings recent documentation was wrong. Here are the correct numbers:
      Syntax: savesettings [settings=all]
        settings: (bit field)
               0 = (none)
               1 = ini
               2 = catalog
               4 = udc.dat
               8 = ks.dat
              16 = servers.dat (cached servers)
              32 = fvs.dat
              64 = tag.dat
             128 = action.dat (action log, undo/redo data)
             256 = pv.dat (permanent variables)
             512 = Language.ini (holds name of current language file)
            1023 = [Default] all above settings
    ! Info Panel: Pixel dirt in TabIPVisualStyle=0. Fixed.

v14.40.0003 - 2014-08-27 21:46
    * Tweak FlatPlusMinus has been replaced by tweak TreeExpansionIcon.
        TreeExpansionIcon=0 //3D plus/minus icon
        TreeExpansionIcon=1 //flat plus/minus icon
        TreeExpansionIcon=2 //Windows Themes plus/minus icon
        TreeExpansionIcon=3 //custom triangle icon (experimental)
      Note 1: TreeExpansionIcon=2 (Windows Themes plus/minus icon) will draw the
      same icon for Maxi and Mini Tree.
      Note 2: Curiously I did not find the Win8 themes triangle icon in the API.
    * Catalog: Minor graphical change.

    * Raw View: Now flat.
    * Tab Bar: Experimentally reduced the gap between the tab headers by one
      pixel from 0 to -1. This removes the ugly and totaly useless doubled lines
      between the tabs. Now we got tight tabs!
      Looks great with the Win8 default theme (and also saves horizontal space,
      about 1 pixel per tab). The questions is whether this looks good with all
      Window Themes.
      (Only applied when Configuration | Tabs | Visual style = Windows Themes.)
    * Tab Bar: The left-most tab header did not fully left-align but was
      indented by one pixel. That was done on purpose in those non-flat days,
      but now it looks disturbing. The left-most tab header now is fully
      left-aligned.
      (Only applied when Configuration | Tabs | Visual style = Windows Themes.
      The other style was left-aligned anyway.)
    + SC SaveSettings enhanced.
      Syntax: savesettings [settings=all]
        settings: (bit field)
               0 = (none)
               1 = ini
               2 = catalog
               4 = udc.dat
               8 = ks.dat
              16 = fvs.dat
              32 = tag.dat
              64 = pv.dat
             128 = servers.dat
             256 = action.dat
            1023 = [Default] all settings
      Example:
        savesettings 3; //saves ini and catalog
    ! Catalog: Highlighting hovered items did not work anymore for a couple of
      days. Fixed.

    * Toolbars: All small toolbars are now drawn using the Window Theme (Vista
      and later).
      The main toolbar, however, is kept in the old style. Here the Window Theme
      possibilities are simply not sufficient to create a good interface.
    * Toolbars: The section separators got flat.
    * Status Bar: The section separators got flat.
    * Info Panel: The tabs got a new flat style. Also the tab heads got higher
      to make a larger target.
      If you don't like it you can tweak it away using TabIPVisualStyle.
      Note: If "Configuration | Tabs | Visual style" is set to XYplorer Classic
      the Info Panel will be in Classic style as well.
    ! SC property: Argument "#mp3.year" did not work, e.g:
        property("#mp3.year", "<curitem>");
      Fixed.

      Ultra-flat. Love it! Made it the factory default for Windows 8 and later.

      Configuration | Styles | Borders is set to "White border" or No border".

    * Tree Node Crumbs: Reversed the coloring. Now, child folders that are
      already present in the Mini Tree are colored with "Marked Text 2" color in
      the popup. And, this coloring is done now only in Mini Tree; it's
      pointless in Maxi Tree.
    * Shell Drop: Now when shell drop is not possible because the dropped items
      are from multiple locations you are automatically offered XY's custom drop
      menu.
    ! Shell Drop: Failed on right-mouse dropping items from multiple locations
      without showing the expcted error message. Fixed.
    * Updated the help file.

    + Catalog: All tag-related categories (Click and Tag, Click and Search) and
      their items now have a new item "Update Category" in their context menu.
      Click it to update the items listed in the category to the latest state of
      the tags database. Another step towards tagging perfection.
      Before, you would have to add a new Category and delete the old one.
    * Click and Tag: Now the focus goes right back to the List after clicking.
      Much more useful. There is no point in keeping the focus on the Catalog.
    ! List: The Comment column did not display TAB characters. Fixed.

  *** Edit Boxes: Now when there is a selection and you press the Left (Right)
      key the caret will jump to the beginning (end) of the selection and the
      selection will be removed.
      Note that the Windows shell itself behaves differently, e.g. Windows
      Explorer: caret moves one step into the direction, selection is removed.
      But most modern software seems to behave like the new way -- it seems
      simply more practical.
    ! Address Bar: Pasting a path containing brackets ([...]) could crash the
      app under certain conditions. Fixed.
