    + Customize Toolbar: Now the Toolbar Zoom is reflected in the button lists, 
      so the lists are WYSIWYG.
    ! 4K Displays: Fixed more display issues. Still some way to go, though...

    + Hi-Res: Experimentally added 4 hi-res icons (128x128) for Info, Quick 
      Search, Find Files, and Sync. You will see them from resolution 200% 
      onwards, e.g. in the Quick Search dialog. Proof of concept.

    * List: Made the sort symbols (ascending/descending) adapt to the font size, 
      so now they grow with the font. They are also now drawn in an anti-aliased 
      way (less pixely).
    % Changed the setting of a fundamental compiler constant ("Assuming No 
      Alias" => TRUE) that should make the app a tiny bit faster in a very 
      general way. Why didn't I do this before? Well, I tried that years ago but 
      it would not compile. Now I tried again and it worked! So something in the 
      code made it more digestible to the compiler.

    * Toolbar: Made the overflow symbol (right end of the bar when there are 
      more buttons than space) adapt to the button size, so now it grows with the 
      buttons.
    * Updated the help file.
    ! Dark Mode: Since v21.10.0028 - 2020-10-01 12:25 switching Dark/Light Mode 
      would cause a little flicker that was not there before. Fixed.
