v22.40.0205 - 2021-11-04 13:17
    + Custom Event Actions: Added new event "Switch Tabs" with 3 actions: None, 
      Optimize tree, Run script. It is fired after the switching of tabs is 
      fully completed.
    + SC setthumb enhanced: Now you can pass a specific item to set the 
      thumbnail for.
      Syntax: setthumb source, [item]
        source: Full path to the file to be used as thumbnail.
        item:   Item to set the thumbnail for.
                If you omit the full path, the current list path is assumed.
                Note: This item has to be present in the current list.
      Examples:
        setthumb "\\Vega\shared\Test\Pics\BlowUp.jpg", "E:\Test\Meskalin.exe";
        setthumb <clp>, "Meskalin.exe";
    % Tools | Customize List | Show Folder Sizes (= List | Size Column Context 
      Menu | Show Folder Sizes): Switching off this value now works faster and 
      more smoothly (no more flickering in the file list).
    ! Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs | Reuse existing tabs when changing 
      the location: Under certain conditions the list style and other properties 
      (eg any Visual Filter) in the reused tab were lost. Fixed.
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.

v22.40.0203 - 2021-11-03 14:41
    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: SetThumb
      Action: Sets a specific thumbnail to all selected files.
      Syntax: setthumb source
        source: Full path to the file to be used as thumbnail.
      Remarks:
        - The list has to be in a view with thumbnails for this command to work.
        - The injected thumbnails will also be remembered in the cache (but only 
          for this particular thumbnails size).
        - The injected thumbnails will not survive a "Refresh Thumbnails".
        - You can use this command on files (or folders) that you need a 
          different thumbnail for, or files (or folders) that for some reason 
          don't get a thumbnail at all.
      Examples:
        setthumb "\\Vega\shared\Test\Pics\BlowUp.jpg";
        setthumb <clp>;        
    > Folder Size Cache: FYI, with the new "Refresh Folder Sizes" you can update 
      individual folder sizes when you select these folders in the list.
    * View | Calculate Folder Sizes: Renamed to "Show Folder Sizes Now".
    * Folder Sizes: The status message "getting folder size for <$path>... (ESC 
      to stop)" is now also displayed for all recursive subfolders. That way it 
      does not seem to hang on a very deeply nested and large folder.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.138.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.138.lng is uploaded.
        You will be notified if you have subscribed to this thread:

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.
To download this BETA version choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

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.

    ! 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.

    * Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Columns | Autofit the width 
      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.

    + 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.

      "Network" branch.
    * Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs | Reuse existing tabs when changing 
      the location: Exceptions are now made both when going "up" and "down" to 
      stay on the current tab.
    ! Audio Properties | Sample Rate: Some file types had a thousand separator, 
      others didn't. Fixed. Now there is always a thousand separator.

    ! Mini Tree: You could not hide the Network node or any of its children 
      (servers) by editing the Mini Tree (Tools | List Management | Mini 
      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.

    % 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.
