    ! Dialogs: In extreme situations (dialogs are restored to a size larger than 
      the current screen size) the left or top parts of a popup dialog could end 
      up outside of the visible screen space. Fixed.
    ! File | Quick File View: With the dialog shown a script could be run that 
      attempted to re-use that dialog again resulting in a crash. Fixed.

    + List: Now Ctrl+Alt+DblClick on a folder works for overwriting locked tabs 
      (it will go into the clicked folder within the locked tab). FYI, this 
      should have worked since 20051116 but never really did. :)
    ! Image Hash: The hashing routine would enter a tight eternal loop on 
      vertical needle-like images (where the height was much larger than the 
      width). Only Task Manager could end this mess. Fixed.

    ! Shell Context Menu: When opening an item via context menu XYplorer did not 
      notify the system that an item has been accessed (for the purposes of 
      tracking those items used most recently and most frequently).
      Note that this tweak had to be set as well for this to happen:
        AddToRecentDocs=1
      But not anymore! From this version onwards this setting is the factory 
      default. Also for upgraders to this version it will be set.

    * Hover Box: Won't pop a Hover Box anymore for an item that was just 
      clicked. That was just annoying.
    ! Preview: If you acted too fast while a preview (e.g. for a PDF) was being 
      generated you could get the annoying "This action cannot be completed 
      because the other application is busy" dialog. Fixed.
    % Preview: Along with the above fix the preview became much faster.

    + Audio Properties in Columns: Now the special properties Bit Depth, Bit 
      Rate, Channels, Length, and Sample Rate, are also shown for video files 
      (where available). Before, they were only shown for audio files.
    ! Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Rename | Show name length 
      while renaming: Did not work correctly in Tree. The whole path length (in 
      parentheses) never changed while editing the name. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Rename | Show name length 
      while renaming: In Dark Mode the red color shown for overlong names was 
      not really red at all. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability | Usability | Highlight 
      hovered items: When renaming a hovered item in Tree or List the original 
      name could remain visible under the edit box. Fixed.

      would not exceed the system's large thumbnails size (e.g. 256 x 256). 
      Fix #2.

    % List: Now deleting items from long lists is *much* faster than before 
      because it does not involve refilling the whole list from scratch anymore. 
      Especially with slow columns (e.g. Image Hash) the difference will be very 
      notable.
