      one selection since v22.20.0220 - 2021-09-23 14:47. Fixed.
    ! SC popupmainmenu: Popped relative to main window when "submenu" was

    + Live Filter Box | Context Menu: Added three settings that are shared by 
      Visual Filters and Live Filters:
      - Apply to Files Only
      - Match Case
      - Ignore Diacritics
    * Configuration | Find and Filter | Filters & Type Ahead Find: Reorganized 
      the page by combining three shared settings in a new section "Visual 
      Filters and Live Filter Box".
    ! Cell Context Menu | Live Filter: For some columns the "Match Case" setting 
      was ignored. Fixed.
      Note that "Match Case" for Live Filters is controlled here: Configuration 
      | Find and Filter | Filters & Type Ahead Find | Visual Filters | Match 
      case.
    ! Locked Mini Tree: Newly created folders were auto-added to the tree. 
      That's okay with the Locked Maxi Tree (see v8.80.0016 - 2010-01-13 15:15) 
      but not with the Locked Mini Tree. Fixed.

    * Configuration | General | Tree and List | Items in Tree and List | Show 
      hidden drives: Improved the handling of drives hidden by registry. You 
      cannot show any locations on those drives anymore unless "Show hidden 
      drives" is enabled, and you get a message telling you about this: "This 
      drive is hidden by user settings."
    * Tweak HideDrivesByLetter: This tweak overrides "Show hidden drives". Now 
      also here you cannot show any locations on those drives and you get a 
      message telling you about this: "This drive is hidden by user settings."
    > Removed debug logging to investigate a "Location currently not available" issue.

    + Configuration | General | Tree and List | Items in Tree and List | Show 
      portable devices: When checking this box, an explicit warning is shown 
      now: "Warning: Microsoft's Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) is known to be 
      unreliable and can cause data loss. Use caution when performing file 
      operations to or from portable devices!"
    * Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability | Usability | Highlight 
      hovered items: In the file list the hover effect was removed on mouse up. 
      I find this strange now and have decided to leave the hover effect.
      Also, when a mouse down (any button) implicitly closes a context menu, 
      the hover effect is updated now to the item the mouse is downed on.
    ! Configuration | General | Refresh, Icons, History | Icons | Draw selected 
      list icons dimmed: The dimming effect was wrong. Fixed.
    ! Hover Box: Did not work anymore in the Folder Contents Preview since the 
      recent changes in File Info Tips & Hover Box. Fixed.

v22.30.0202 - 2021-10-21 18:22
    + Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails: Added option "Resolve cache path 
      from current folder". Enable it to make a softly defined cache path 
      location (i.e. one that is not a hard path) dependent on the current 
      folder instead of the XYplorer app data path. The current folder is the 
      folder for which you are currently showing thumbnails. Examples:
      
        Cache path    Resolve cache path      Path is resolved to
                      from current folder     
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        ?:\XYThumbs\  disabled                [XYplorer app data drive]:\XYThumbs\
        ?:\XYThumbs\  enabled                 [Current drive]:\XYThumbs\
        XYThumbs\     disabled                [XYplorer app data path]\XYThumbs\
        XYThumbs\     enabled                 [Current folder path]\XYThumbs\
        
        The setting has no effect on a hard path, e.g.:
        E:\XYThumbs\  disabled                E:\XYThumbs\
        E:\XYThumbs\  enabled                 E:\XYThumbs\

      IMO the ?:\XYThumbs\ + ON example the most useful. It allows you to save 
      thumbnails on a removable drive and use them regardless of the assigned 
      drive letter. A big plus in portability.

    + Added tweak to create thumbnails for certain extension that usually don't 
      have thumbnails. List the extensions separated by a dot, for example for 
      archive files:
        ThumbsExtraExtensions=cab.rar.zip
    ! Configuration | General | Refresh, Icons, History | Icons | Draw selected 
      list icons dimmed: The recent fix did not work well with thumbnails views. 
      Fixed.
To download this BETA version choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v22.30.0203 - 2021-10-22 12:17
    + Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Resolve cache path from current 
      folder: Now the soft path is also used to create the cache reference 
      strings, I mean these beasts:
        1369bc473358b6c238f64e429d424290.dbits
        1369bc473358b6c238f64e429d424290.dat2
      This means if your cache path is a subfolder of the current folder, you 
      can now do the following:
        - move the cache along with the original files
        - rename the folder of the original files
        - make a copy of the folder of the original files (incl the cache 
          subfolder) in any location
      No new thumbnails will be created, the cache will not get stale, the 
      copied cache will just work. Even if you do the above with an external 
      program while XYplorer is closed!
    * Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Include removable media: Renamed it 
      to "Include removable media and network locations" because that's what it 
      does.
    * Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs | Reuse existing tabs when changing 
      the location: Now it also re-uses existing tabs when going by tree, list, 
      breadcrumb bar, and whatever other way.
    - Removed tweak TabReuseTabsRadical.
    ! Paper Folders: When you renamed an item within a Paper Folder, that change 
      was not auto-saved to the Paper Folder when leaving it. Fixed (only 
      applies to "Explicit Save Only" = False).
    ! SC extracttext: Did not handle a fallback to 64-bit IFilters. Fixed.
To download this BETA version choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v22.30.0204 - 2021-10-22 18:45
    + Info Panel | Tags | Apply: Now when you right-click the "Apply" button, a 
      toggle "Apply Changed Tags Automatically" appears. Tick it to have 
      changes to tags applied automatically when another file is focused, 
      without the "Apply Changed Tags?" prompt.
      FYI, this option raises tweak TagsAutoApply to UI.
    * Tree and various menus: Now the Network node is shown after the Recycle 
      Bin node. Both swapped places.
    ! Custom Toolbar Buttons: A glitch concerning the right-click menu and 
      related to the tweak CTBNoRClickDefaultCommands was introduced in 
      v14.80.0235 - 2015-02-14 12:26. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Resolve cache path from current 
      folder: Did not work with Paper Folders. No caching happened at all. 
      Fixed. Now with a Paper Folder the cache path is always resolved relative 
      to the XYplorer app data path. There is no other reference available. So 
      there is no thumb cache portability possible with Paper Folders.

    + Breadcrumb Bars: Now you can MouseDown to open the dropdown, then MouseUp
      to select an item. Before, you needed two clicks, one to open, one to select.
    + CEA: The CEA-specific variable <newpath> always returns the real path of a 
      location (eg "C:\Users\Donald\Documents"), even if it is currently selected 
      as a special location in the tree, e.g. "Documents".
      Now there is a new variable <newpathspecial> which will return the special 
      path if there is one, otherwise it returns the real path just like 
      <newpath>.
    * SC listfolder enhanced: Added flag to return special paths when the parent 
      folder is given as a special path.
      Syntax: listfolder([path=<curpath>], [pattern=*], [flags], [separator="|"])
        flags: (binary field)
         64: KeepSpecial (= return special paths)
      Examples:
        inputselect("Test", listfolder("%personal%", , 2));  //lists subfolders using real paths
        inputselect("Test", listfolder("%personal%", , 2 + 64));  //lists subfolders using special paths
