    * Scripting: Now any "_Initialize" script is processed exactly when it is 
      found in a multi-script resource (which is scanned from top to bottom). 
      That way you can modify even captions and icons of the following scripts 
      in the "_Initialize" script. Before, the captions and icons were processed 
      first, then the "_Initialize" script, then all other scripts, finally any 
      "_Terminate" script.
To download this BETA version choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

:!: Note that BETA versions are work in progress and might contain fresh bugs. You have been warned.
It's a good idea to backup your complete XYplorer settings (menu File | Settings Special | Backup Application Data Folder...)
before running a new BETA version. This will also help in fixing any fresh bugs.

    + Hover Box: Now TGA images are natively supported, no CODEC necessary.
    + Special Property | Dimensions: Now TGA images are natively supported, no 
      CODEC necessary.
    ! Preview: Compressed 32-bit TGA images raised error 7 (Out of memory) when 
      they were larger than 5000x5000 pixels. Kind of fixed. No error anymore, 
      but also no native preview (or thumbnails) for those biggies. If you have 
      CODECs for TGA you still should get a preview (or thumbnails), of course.
    ! Live Filter Box: Too many & in the commands, too few & in the Favorite 
      Live Filters. Fixed.
    * Updated the help file.

    % Word Break Style: Improved the automatic word boundary recognition (on 
      double-click, Ctrl+Arrow, Ctrl+BackSpace) in various text boxes including 
      Address Bar and script boxes.
    ! SC listfolder: Flag 64 (return special paths) could return the wrong 
      special paths if there was more than one theoretical option. Fixed.
    ! Live Filter Box: Making the factory default width dependent on the screen 
      width (v22.30.0004 - 2021-10-02 12:01) was a mistake. Fixed. Now it's back 
      to a hard 140 pixels (at 100% resolution) initially.

      Tree...). Fixed.
    ! Configuration | General | Custom Event Actions: Since 20211025 a click on 
      the header popped a weird kind of menu from hell. Fixed.
    ! SC input: Did not show an icon with style "w" or "m". Fixed.
      FYI, works with toolbar icon keys (":dark") and also with image specs:
        input("All About Me", 3:=w, 8:="Selfie.jpg");
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0176.

    + Tree: Full collapse by CTRL+Click-on-Minus now also works on "This PC" and 
      "Network". FYI, CTRL+Click-on-Plus on these nodes will only normal-expand 
      (full expand would take too long).
    ! Find Files and Quick Search: The /types flag (e.g. /types={:Video}) was 
      implemented in a stupid way that totally wasted its speed-gaining 
      potential. Fixed.
      A search like this will now be MUCH faster when done over many files with 
      only some videos among them (#301 stands for FrameWidth here, but that 
      depends on the Windows version:
        prop:#301: >= 240 /types={:Video}
    ! Find Files and Quick Search: A simple native-selector-based search like 
      "prop:#301: >= 720" or "prop:#AspectRatio: 16:9" did not work anymore 
      since 20210920. Fixed.

      of the Name column: Now renaming a file does not temporarily adjust the 
      Name column anymore when "Tools | Customize List | Autosize Columns" is 
      also enabled.
    ! SC replacelist: A script like this made XY hang forever:
        echo replacelist("abca", "ab|", , "|");
      Fixed.

    ! Mini Tree: A small optimization in v22.40.0005 had less optimal 
      consequences for the Mini Tree (double nodes, automatically expanded nodes 
      and more). Fixed.
    ! Instant Color Filters: "Files Shaded by Size" did not work correctly 
      anymore, probably since 20210918. Fixed.

v22.40.0201 - 2021-11-01 11:35
    + SC get got a new named argument "selext". Use it to return a list of all 
      currently selected file extensions in the common format "*.aaa;*.bbb;*.ccc".
      Syntax: get("selext", [separator=";"])
      Examples:
        echo get("selext");         //*.eml;*.epfxg;*.eps;*.exe;*.flv;*.gif
        echo get("selext", " | ");  //*.eml | *.epfxg | *.eps | *.exe | *.flv | *.gif
      Variable-style syntax:
        echo <get selext>;          //*.eml;*.epfxg;*.eps;*.exe;*.flv;*.gif
        echo <get selext " | ">;    //*.eml | *.epfxg | *.eps | *.exe | *.flv | *.gif
     Remarks:
      - For files without extension the pattern "*." is returned.
      - Selected folders are ignored. If only folders are selected then nothing 
        is returned.
       - You can use it to revive the recently dropped command "View | Tab | 
         Filter By Selected Extension(s)" by using this Visual Filter definition:
          |<get selext>
      - Tip: Add it to the Power Filters via Tools | List Management | Power 
        Filters...:
          "Selected Extension(s)" <get selext>
    * Tweak LargePlusMinus now defaults to 22. Was 21 before. This change will 
      only affect fresh installations.
    ! Configuration | General | Startup & Exit | Open command line start path in 
      new tab: On a locked tree it opened a new tab even when tabs were not 
      remembered from the previous session. That was not the idea of the 
      setting. Fixed.
To download this BETA version choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v22.40.0202 - 2021-11-02 17:07
    + List | Size Column Context Menu: Added command "Refresh Folder Sizes". Use 
      this command to calculate the actual folder sizes for the current list and 
      refresh the cache (if caching is enabled). It's like "Calculate Folder 
      Sizes" but without using the cache.
    * View | Calculate Folder Sizes: This command now pulls the folder sizes 
      from the cache, if any. To get fresh folder sizes, now use the new "Update 
      Folder Sizes" command (see above).
    * Folder Sizes: The status message "getting folder size for <$path>... (ESC 
      to stop)" is now only shown for non-cached folders. Saves time.
    ! Configuration | General | Tree and List | Items in Tree and List | Show 
      Recycle Bin folder: If turned off then in Maxi Tree the dotted line 
      between drives was not displayed. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | File Operations | File Operations | Background Processing 
      | Queue file operations: It is possible that a completed delete operation 
      could trigger the next job in the queue, even though a previous job was 
      not yet completed. Fixed.
