    + List: The white space context menu now features the command "Refresh 
      List". It's a copy of the command "View | Refresh List" (Ctrl+F5). 
      Explorer has it too in that place so it might be expected and welcome.

    + SC ID3Tag enhanced: Now you can force it to return ID3v1 tags only.
      Syntax: id3tag([file], [tagslist], [separator="|"], [flags])
        flags: (bit field)
          1 = Return ID3v1 tags even if ID3v2 tags are present.
              Otherwise ID3v2 tags are returned even if ID3v1 tags are present.
      Examples:
        text id3tag();      //just return the ID3v1 (or ID3v2 if present) tags of the current file
        text id3tag(3:=1);  ///just return the ID3v1 tags (even if ID3v2 tags are present)
    ! Dark Mode: The MP3 info fields on Info Panel | Preview got the wrong 
      background color in Dark Mode. Fixed.
    ! Folder View Settings: After renaming a folder any Folder View Settings 
      assigned to it where lost, i.e. the path was not auto-updated in FVS 
      memory and in the FVS database (fvs.dat). Fixed.

      drag and drop context menu: Now if you hold CTRL while releasing the right 
      mouse button the the effect of this setting is inverted. That way you can 
      easily switch between both drag and drop context menus without going first 
      to Configuration. If you don't like the current menu hold CTRL to show the 
      other one.

v20.20.0204 - 2019-08-07 19:10
    + SC get got a new named argument "thumbnailprovider". Rather for debugging 
      purposes (but who knows) this is a way to quickly retrieve the GUID, 
      Standard value, and DisplayName of the default thumbnail provider associated 
      with a given extension. The information is retrieved from the registry.
      
      Syntax: get("thumbnailprovider", extension, separator=CRLF)
        extension:  [required] any registered file extension
        separator:  separator between GUID, Standard, and DisplayName in the 
                    returned string
        return:     GUID,separator,Standard,separator,DisplayName
                    Nothing if no thumbnailprovider is found.
      Example:
        text get("thumbnailprovider", "webp");
      The return might look like this:
        GUID: {C5AEC3EC-E812-4677-A9A7-4FEE1F9AA000}
        DefaultName: Icaros Thumbnail Provider

    ! Configuration | Information | Tags | Copy tags on copy operations: This 
      did not fully work for tagged items inside copied folders. An interesting 
      recursion issue caused that only about the first half of the tags were 
      copied. Fixed. Cool side effect: Such operations are faster now.

      function "Snap to Main Window" (Ctrl+Shift+Alt+F12) has now been added to 
      the context menu of the Floating Preview.
      Turn it on to keep the Floating Preview snapped to the main window's right 
      side: When you move the main window the Floating Preview is dragged along 
      with it.
    % SC sel: Increased speed by pluggin a useless hole.
    ! Configuration | Preview | Previewed Formats. The format CSV was wrongly 
      categorized as Office File. Fixed. Moved it to Text Files. This speeds up 
      searching text in large CSV files considerably. It also changes the way 
      CSV files are previewed.

    * Breadcrumb Bars | Hamburger: From now on any comments must be separated by 
      " //" (leading space), not just "//". This avoids some undesired 
      ambiguities.
    ! SC popupmenu / popupnested: Since v20.20.0105 - 2019-07-12 11:52 you could 
      not have "//" in the captions anymore since it was treated as a comment 
      separator. Fixed.
    * Trial Version: The nag screen now is shown again from trial day 25 onwards 
      so that the user knows the trial period will soon be over.
    ! SC getpathcomponent(), gpc(): When using flag 1 (Return from start) on UNC 
      paths the UNC prefix "\\" was missing in the return. Fixed.
    ! Toolbar | Edit Clipboard: Tooltip flickered when pressing Shift while

    + SC getpathcomponent(), gpc(): Added component value "name" as an 
      alternative to "file". Makes sense since it can also refer to folders and 
      is more consistent with the variable <curname>, which returns the same. 
      And a variable <curfile> does not even exist.
        echo gpc(, "name"); //same as "file"
    * File | File Special | Swap Names: Now the Attributes column ("Attr") for 
      both files is updated right away if necessary (the Archive bit is set 
      after a rename), even when Auto-Refresh is off.
