    * 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.
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.

v22.30.0108 - 2021-10-10 15:02
    + 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

      was ignored. Fixed.

      | 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.

    * Info Panel | Find Files | Reset Filters: Now you get an "Are you sure?" 
      prompt before the filters are reset.
    ! Auto-Refresh: Auto-refresh was not working in the inactive pane on 
      deletions in the active pane. Fixed.
    ! Tools | Customize Tree | Show Expansion Icons: With the checkmark 
      unchecked, you could still click the area where the extension icon is 
      usually located and toggle the extension. Fixed.
    ! View | Tab | Filter By Selection(s): Did not work anymore with more than 
      one selection since v22.20.0220 - 2021-09-23 14:47. Fixed.
    ! SC popupmainmenu: Popped relative to main window when "submenu" was

v22.30.0104 - 2021-10-08 20:50
    + Added SC get("find_queryparsed_last"): The old SC get("find_queryparsed") 
      always returns the last-used query in a friendly way, but that's the 
      last-used query of the current list pane. This does not include any 
      searches via SC quicksearch() which bypass the GUI and hence the list 
      panes.
      To look at a friendly version of the very last search query including any 
      quicksearch() you can now use this argument:
        text get("find_queryparsed_last");
        text <get find_queryparsed_last>; //alternate syntax for SC get
    ! Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: More glitches 
      fixed.
    ! Worked on the "Location currently not available" issue. Tried a fix.
    ! Tab Bars | 'Tab List' button: The menu did not show all sorts of custom 
      tab icons correctly in all resolutions. Fixed.
To download this BETA version choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

    + Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: Added option 
      "Show hover box only while the shift key is held down". Before, this 
      functionality was covered by "Show info tips only while the shift key is 
      held down". Now the settings are separate, which gives you more setting 
      options.
    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: Reorganized the 
      whole page. Settings that apply to both File Info Tips and Hover Box are 
      now listed in a separate section named "File Info Tips and Hover Box".
    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box | Show tips for 
      clipped tree and list items: Those tips are not shown anymore when the 
      mouse is over a thumbnail.
    ! Configuration | General | Startup & Exit | Open command line start path in 
      new tab: The unticked state was not completely honored. Fixed. Now when 
      unticked the current tab is overwritten by the command line start path 
      unless the tab is locked.
    ! SC quicksearch: Lost its ability to search Paper Folders when "Explicit 
      Save Only" was introduced in v21.50.0133 - 2021-03-08 16:23. Fixed. Now 
      you can do things like this again (no need to load that Paper Folder into 
      the list):
        text quicksearch("egg*.txt /n", "paper:chicken");

    ! Quick Search and Find Files: Parsing issues when a pattern ended with !. 
      Fixed.
        Pattern         Match (case-insensitive)
        -----------------------------------------------
        Rock!           Name: "*rock!*"
        !Rock!          NOT Name: "*rock!*"
        \!Rock!         Name: "*!rock!*"

        !Rock! & Jazz   (NOT Name: "*rock!*") AND Name: "*jazz*"
        \!Rock & Jazz   Name: "*!rock*" AND Name: "*jazz*"      
    ! Color Filters: Since 20210930 Color Filters support Boolean NOT operators 
      (! and NOT). However, escaping those operators didn't work yet with Color 
      Filters. Fixed.
        Pattern         Match
        -----------------------------------------------
        !~!             NOT Name: "*~!*"

    * List Inline Rename: Since v22.10.0006 - 2021-07-24 14:20 there wasn't any 
      grace time anymore when trying to rename a file in use. Now it's back.

    + Live Filter Box: You could already use the Backspace key to remove the 
      last character in the LFB when the focus was in the file list and the LFB 
      contained anything. Now you can use Ctrl+Backspace to remove the last 
      *word* in the LFB.
    * Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Show folder thumbnails: Slightly 
      changed the order of precedence when asked which file is used for the 
      folder's thumbnail:
        1.  desktop.ini
              [ViewState]
              Logo=[this file]
        2.  folder.jpg, folder.jpeg, folder.png, or folder.gif (in that order)
        3.  The first image file among the alphabetically first 50 files.
        4.  The first video file among the alphabetically first 50 files.
      The limitation of only checking 50 files is due to performance reasons 
      (imagine a folder of 50,000 TXT files, we don't want to waste too much 
      time on this).
    ! Live Filter: Exact match via quotes did not work with the Name selector. 
      Fixed. Example:
        Name: "Beanie or Cap.txt"
    ! Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs | Minimum / Maximum tab width in 
      pixels: Since 20210628 the maximum could not go below 250. Fix #2. The 
      v22.10.0206 - 2021-08-28 16:08 fix was not complete.
To download this BETA version choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v22.30.0005 - 2021-10-03 16:58
    + Cell Context Menu | Live Filter / Quick Search: Now if the pattern
      contains any Boolean characters or backslashes the pattern is 
      automatically quoted to avoid any parsing ambiguities. Examples:
        Owner: "Vega\Donald"
        Comment: "cat & dog"
        Tags: "!Okay!"
    > FYI, alternatively to quoting you can escape such operators (since this 
      feature is fixed, see below):
        Owner: Vega\\Donald
        Comment: cat \& dog
        Tags: \!Okay!
    ! Find Files and Quick Search: Escaping boolean operators with "\" did not 
      work anymore since 20210312. Fixed. Examples:
        Pattern                 Match
        cat \& dog              "cat & dog"
        cat \and dog            "cat and dog"
        \!cat                   "!cat"
        !\!cat                  NOT "!cat"
    * Thumbnails: New factory defaults for the sizes offered in "Configuration | 
      Preview | Thumbnails | Thumbnail widths and heights". Rounder and larger 
      numbers:
        OLD: 16,32,64,96,128,192,200,300,450,512,675
        NEW: 16,32,64,96,128,192,200,300,400,600,800,1200,1600
      Nothing changes for upgraders. You can always tweak the "ThumbSizes" key.

v22.30.0004 - 2021-10-02 12:01
    + Live Filter Box: Now you can adjust the width of the box in a snap by 
      hitting Shift+Alt+Wheel over the box. The width is increased or decreased 
      in steps of 10 pixels. Minimum is 40 pixels, maximum is screen width.
      In case you don't have a mouse with a wheel, you can tweak the value here:
        LiveFilterBoxWidth=200
    * Live Filter Box: Now the factory default width depends on the screen width 
      and is defined as Max(140, screenWidth / 12). Before it was hard-coded to 
      140. So with screens wider than 1680 the box will be wider than before.
      Once you set the width by Shift+Alt+Wheel the factory default is 
      irrelevant, of course.

    + Cell Context Menu | Live Filter / Quick Search: If you're adventurous 
      enough to call your columns "Not OK" or "Birds and Feathers" (i.e. with 
      Boolean operators in the name) they will survive Boolean parsing only with 
      escapes ("\"). Now such escapes are automatically added where necessary, 
      e.g. "\Not OK" or "Birds \and Feathers".
