    + Favorite Live Filters: Now you can remove a FLF by holding CTRL while you 
      click on it in the right-click menu of the "Filter"-icon. This is a cooler 
      alternative to yesterday's way: First select the LF and then click "Toggle 
      Favorite Live Filter".

v21.70.0117 - 2021-05-06 20:41
    + Live Filter Box: Added Favorite Live Filters functionality. You'll find a 
      new command "Toggle Favorite Live Filter" in the right-click menu of the 
      "Filter"-icon. By this command you can add or remove the current Live 
      Filter pattern to an array of Favorite Live Filters which is displayed at 
      the bottom of that same menu. This array can hold up to 32 patterns. It's 
      automatically sorted alphabetically.
      Clicking such a Favorite Live Filter will feed the pattern into the box 
      and filter the list accordingly.
      Whether these Favorite Live Filters are saved in the INI-file is 
      controlled by the same setting that controls the saving of the Visual 
      Filters MRU:
        Configuration | General | Startup & Exit | Save Settings | Include 
        most-recently-used lists on save: Visual Filters
      Note that the Favorite Live Filters are global (same list in all tabs), 
      where the last used Live Filter (used by "Toggle Live Filter") is stored 
      per tab.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download 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.

    + Startup: Since v21.70.0115 the default startup sequence is to first show 
      the main window and then load the slow tree icon overlays. If for some 
      reason you want the old behavior back you can use this new tweak:
        TreeIconsEarlyLoad=1
    + Branch View: To exclude whole sub-branches, e.g. ".git" folders and their 
      contents, from a Branch View you could use this pattern in the Live Filter 
      Box (if "Live Filter Box | Enable extended pattern matching" is ON):
        path:!.git
      Now this alternative pattern works as well:
        !.git\
      In both cases the full path (with trailing slash) of each item is matched 
      with *.git\*.
      BTW, if you only want to exclude items *directly* under ".git" folders you 
      would use any of these patterns:
        path:!*.git
        !*.git\
      FYI, the new syntax also works in a Visual Filter.

    + List: Now a manual sort order is indicated by a small "hand" character 
      (Unicode U+270B) in the Name column header.
    % SC get loadtimes: Improved logging concerning loading tree folders.
    % Startup: Experimentally icon overlays in the tree are now loaded only 
      after the app is shown. So you can already look at the situation while the 
      icon work is being done.

    + List: Now the random sort order is indicated by a small "dice" character 
      (Unicode U+2684) in the Name column header. It's hard to recognize in 
      point 9 fonts but at least you can see the list not normally sorted and 
      it's not manually sorted.
    + Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up | Mouse Up on Folder Icons | 
      Folder contents preview (aka Mouse Up Show Down): Now it supports the 
      mouse wheel even when the mouse pointer is not over the popup list. Cool!
    + Breadcrumb Bars: Same as above for the dropdown lists.
    + Mouse Up Show Down: Now it pops upwards or downwards wherever there is 
      more available space. Before, there was a preference for popping 
      downwards. The goal here is to make the visible part of the list as large 
      as possible.

    + Extracting Non-Zip Archives: The following semi-documented script command 
      displays the status quo concerning all those Zip variables and tweaks:
      Syntax: r7 [use7z]
        use7z:  0=prefer WinRAR over 7-Zip for extraction
                1=prefer 7-Zip over WinRAR for extraction
      Examples:
        r7;   //show state
        r7 0; //set "prefer WinRAR" and show state
        r7 1; //set "prefer 7-Zip" and show state
    > Tip: If you want even WinZip-archives (*.zip) to be extracted by 7-Zip or 
      WinRAR you add "zip" to this list of extensions:
        ZipExtWinRAR=".7z.ace.arj.bz2.cab.gz.iso.jar.lzh.rar.tar.uue.xz.z.zip.
    ! Configuration | General | Controls & More | Auto-Complete Path Names |

    + Extracting Non-Zip Archives: Now additionally to WinRAR also 7-Zip can be 
      used as extracting app, so you don't need WinRAR when you have 7-Zip.
      Notes:
      - 7-Zip does not seem to support Unicode in the archive name; well, it 
        might just be my outdated version 9.20 from 2010.
      - If you have both WinRAR and 7-Zip then WinRAR is used for extraction.

v21.70.0105 - 2021-05-02 11:52
    + Custom Context Menu | Zip: Now the commands "Extract Here" and "Extract to 
      [folder]" are also available within a Paper Folder.
    + Drag and Drop Context Menu: Now "Extract Here" also supports RAR files 
      (WinRAR has to be installed), and it will extract all dragged files (not 
      only the focused one). Note that you can extract ZIP and RAR files in one 
      go, and they can be from different locations.
    + Now the new RAR extraction support extends to all extensions supported by 
      WinRAR. You can tweak the list of extensions at this INI-key (below you 
      see the factory default extensions) in case later WinRAR versions make 
      this necessary or possible:
        ZipExtWinRAR=.7z.ace.arj.bz2.cab.gz.iso.jar.lzh.rar.tar.uue.xz.z.
      Note that listing the contents (e.g. in Hover Box) is still limited to the 
      RAR extension. For some reason (bug?) UnRAR.exe (which is the only file 
      within the WinRAR package that seems to support content listing) does not 
      do the job for any of the other extensions.
    ! Paper Folders: The status bar message "paper folder saved" came also when 
      the Paper Folder was not really saved to disk (Explicit Save Only). Fixed. 
      Now it comes only on a real save.
