    * Catalog: A location ".." was by default resolved relative to app path. Nobody needs 
      this. Now it is resolved relative to the current path.
      Exception: tweak ABRelativeToAppPath is set to 1.
    * A relative path "E:\.." is now resolved to "This PC". Before, it was resolved to "E:\".
    ! Address Bar: Double dot ("..") did not go up to "This PC" when the current path is a 
      drive. Fixed.

v23.00.0208 - 2022-05-06 10:45
    + New variable: <xyparent> = parent of XYplorer app path (unslashed). Points 
      to "<xypath>\..".
    + SC getpathcomponent(), gpc(): Added component value "dos" to convert a long
      path spec to DOS format (aka 8.3 format).
      Remarks:
        - Yes, that's a bit of an abuse of this function, but tolerable I think.
        - Only the valid (existing) part of the input path is returned.
        - The return is always without trailing backslash, even if the input had one.        
        - Note that in Windows the 8.3 file naming can be enabled/disabled per drive. If it is disabled 
          then this function returns the (valid part of the) input unchanged (apart from 
          removing any trailing backslash).
      Example:
        echo getpathcomponent("C:\Program Files", "dos"); //C:\PROGRA~1
    + SC getpathcomponent(), gpc(): Added component value "long" to convert a DOS/8.3 
      path spec into the long format.
      Remarks:
        - See above under "dos".
      Example: 
        echo getpathcomponent("C:\PROGRA~1", "long"); //C:\Program Files
    + SC getpathcomponent(), gpc(): Added flag values to convert a path to and from 
      DOS/8.3 format, and a new component value "full".
      Syntax: getpathcomponent([path], [component], [index=1], [flags])
        component: 
          full:   Return all components of the input path.
        flags: (bit field)
          8 = Convert long format to DOS/8.3
         16 = Convert DOS/8.3 to long format
      Examples:
        echo getpathcomponent("C:\Program Files", "full", 3:=8);  //C:\PROGRA~1
        echo getpathcomponent("C:\PROGRA~1", "full", 3:=16); //C:\Program Files
        echo getpathcomponent("C:\Program Files\AutoHotkey\AutoHotkeyU64.exe", "file", 3:=8);  //AUTOHO~3.EXE

    * Configuration | File Operations | File Operations | Custom Copy Operations | 
      Configure...: Renamed "Skip verification on hard disks" to "Skip verification on 
      local hard disks". Copying across network is usually also between hard disks, so the 
      word *local* here makes the important difference.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0188.
    ! Tools | Customize File Icons...: Fixed a rare drawing glitch related to extracted 
      icons.
    ! Since v23.00.0207 - 2022-05-05 13:06 folders with invalid names ending in two or more 
      dots could not be deleted anymore. Fixed.

    * Factory Defaults: The date columns now start wider (137 instead of 115 pixels) to 
      match the standard US date style, e.g. "10/20/2021 11:37:43 AM".
    * Custom Copy: Improved the prompt you see when source folders could not be removed 
      (due to being locked by another process) after their contents were moved. Now you 
      get a chance to retry the removal.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0189.
    ! Tags: After moving a folder, where the operation fails to remove the source folder 
      after all of the contents have been moved (due to being locked by another process), 
      the tags of the moved items were lost (not moved along). Fixed.
    ! Deletion while thumbnails are being generated: You could get an error 10 here, 
      harmless but still not nice to have. Fixed. Won't happen anymore.

v23.00.0308 - 2022-05-12 11:31
    + Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | 64-bit Windows: Added option "Open files 
      from 64-bit process". Enable it to always open files from a 64-bit process instead 
      of a 32-bit process. This affects how some environment variables are resolved.
      Notes:
      - Affects all sorts of open, e.g. by menu "File | Open", by "File | Open with...", by 
        Enter, or by Double-click on a file.
      - PFA (Portable File Associations) is supported.
      - Technically, this is done by passing the open command through a 64-bit helper app.
      - Of course, the setting is ignored on a 32-bit Windows edition.
    + SC open64 (opens files from 64-bit process; not yet officially documented): Added a 
      parameter to pass an Open-With-Application.
      Syntax: open64 [file_to_open], [app_to_open_file_with]
        file_to_open: Full path to file to be opened.
                      Defaults to focused and selected item.
        app_to_open_file_with: Full path to application to open the file with.
                      If omitted then the OS-associated app is used if any. If there is no 
                      OS-associated app you will end up with an error message.
      Examples:
        open64; //open current item with OS-associated app
        open64 , "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe"; //open current item with Notepad++
        open64 "D:\Test.txt", "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe"; //open "D:\Test.txt" with Notepad++
    * XY64: Updated to 1.0.0.28.
    % Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | 64-bit Windows | Show the 64-bit context 
      menu: The menu opens much faster now (about factor 7). Thanks to highend for AHK 
      skills and Antieve for the impulse!
    * XY64ctxmenu: Updated to 1.2.7.

v23.00.0309 - 2022-05-13 15:37
    + Find Files and Quick Search: Added switch /V by which only visible subfolders of the 
      search location are traversed recursively, i.e. subfolders with the HIDDEN attribute 
      are not searched IF "Configuration | General | Tree and List | Items in Tree and 
      List | Show hidden files and folders" is OFF. Example:
        *.ini /V
    % Browsing and many other things should be slightly faster due to the implementation 
      of a small labor-saving flag in one of the most frequented places in the code.
    % Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | 64-bit Windows | Show the 64-bit context

v23.00.0310 - 2022-05-13 19:30
    + Configuration | Find and Filter | Find Files & Branch View | Find Files: Added 
      option "Persist quick search across folders". Tick it to directly repeat the same 
      quick search on the next folder you go to within the current tab.
      Notes:
      - If you click the current folder again in the tree the quick search mode is ended.
      - The setting is also available in the context menu of the search information bar in 
        the file list.
      - FYI, this functionality existed already prior to v4.00.0008 - 2005-04-05 16:09 but 
        then was dropped with the following note:
          Dropped "Automatic File Find when Browsing" (under menu Tools). 
          The functionality might be reintroduced later, this time by tab.
        17 years later it was about time!
    + Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box | Show file info tips: Now 
      the bitness (32-bit or 64-bit) is shown at the end of the tooltip for all DLL and 
      EXE files.

    + Configuration | Find and Filter | Find Files & Branch View | Find Files: Added 
      option "Skip invisible subfolders". Enable it to not scan folders not shown by 
      current settings (i.e. HIDDEN folders if "Show hidden files and folders" is OFF, and 
      SYSTEM folders if "Show system files and folders" is OFF).
      The effect is identical to using the new /V switch.
    + Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box | Show file info tips: Now 
      the bitness (32-bit or 64-bit) is shown at the end of the tooltip for the following 
      file types:
        .8bf.acm.asr.ax.bpl.com.cpl.deu.dll.dpl.drv.exe.fon.ime.lx
        .ocx.olb.qts.qtx.scr.sys.tlb.tpl.tsp.vbx.vxd
      Bitness can only be determined for MZ executables.
      If the bitness cannot be determined, nothing is returned.
    ! Quick Search: Broken in v23.00.0310 due to some "optimization". Fixed.
    ! Quick Search: A search pattern "%TEMP%;<xypath>? /fn" would not survive a tab 
      switch. Fixed.

    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: Packed the two field lists 
      into buttons "Select Standard Fields..." and "Select Extra Fields...". Relaxes the 
      page and has the great advantage that the pop-up lists can be filtered, which is a 
      blessing with more than 300 entries.
      Note:
      - The line numbers in "Select Standard Fields..." are 0-based because that's how 
        the Windows properties indices work internally and it's easier for coders this 
        way. Just for symmetry, the same is done in "Select Extra Fields...".
    * Configuration | Find and Filter | Find Files & Branch View | Find Files | Follow 
      junctions: Applying a change in this setting will now automatically repeat all open 
      searches to reflect any consequences.
    * Configuration | Find and Filter | Find Files & Branch View | Find Files | Skip 
      invisible subfolders: Applying a change in this setting will now automatically 
      repeat all open searches to reflect any consequences.
