    + Live Filter Box: The position of the Live Filter Box (Window | Arrangement 
      | Live Filter Box in Status Bar) can now also be set via the context menu 
      of the Live Filter Box icon.
    + Breadcrumb Bars | Hamburger: Now you can append a comment to the end of 
      each line, separated by //. Any spaces before the comment separator are 
      trimmed off.
    ! Hover Box: Wrong display of total size of the contents of a hovered ZIP 
      archive when it was > 2GB. Fixed.

    + 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.

v20.20.0102 - 2019-07-08 13:12
    + Added tweak to preview binary files as text if there is nothing better. 
      The previous hard-coded behavior was ON but now the factory default is OFF.
      To turn it on:
        PreviewBinariesAsTextIfNoneBetter=1
      Might add it to UI later.
    % Find Files: Increased the progress rate in the status bar for slow 
      searches with few returns in large folders. Before, it seemed that 
      virtually nothing was going on. Now you get to see some action.
    % Find Files: Searches for extended properties by key are now 3 times faster!
      Before, prop:#24:love was about 3 times faster than 
      prop:System.Comment:love. Now both have the same speed.
    ! Find Files: If Match Case is unticked (in Info Panel / Find Files / Name & 
      Location; in Quick Search (F3) it is internally OFF by default) a selector
      "System.Comment" was internally lower-cased to "system.comment" when found 
      in a Boolean term. But Windows does not recognize it then! It wants 
      "System.Comment". Quite unusual for Windows.
      So this would not have worked:
        :peace and prop:System.Comment:love
      Fixed.

v20.20.0101 - 2019-07-07 13:07
    ! Color Filters in Dark Mode: The readability of text colors on the dark 
      background was improved in v20.10.0007 - 2019-06-09 11:36. However, the 
      results of the new formula were too extreme for some colors. Fixed.
    > Find Files | Searching for Windows Comments: Just a tip because the Help 
      file is somewhat lacking here at the moment. If you are looking for love 
      you have these options:
      
      prop:#24:love                     #24 is the index of the Comments property in Win8.1
                                        This index changes with every Windows release!
                                        You can look up the index in this list:
                                        Configuration | Information | File Info Tips | Show custom file info tips
      
      prop:System.Comment:love          This way should be stable across all Windows 
                                        releases from Win7 onwards. But you never know.
                                        The codes ("System.Comment") are found here, but bring some time:
                                        https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/windows/win32/properties/props
      
      prop:*Comments:love               Works if the Comments property is called "Comments", i.e. if your
                                        locale is English.
      
      prop:*Kommentare:love             Works if the Comments property is called "Kommentare", i.e. if your
                                        locale is German.

    ! The recently added "Watch the clipboard" distroyed the autoupdate of the 
      Clipboard Markers when turned off. That was not intended and is fixed now.
      The only possible fix was to always watch the clipboard, of course. Which 
      means that the Edit Clipboard button does reflect the current state of the 
      clipboard again. So the effect of unticking "Watch the clipboard" is now 
      much smaller and only affects the "Restore Previous Clipboard" function.
    * Configuration | File Operations | Undo & Action Log | Clipboard: Renamed 
      "Watch the clipboard" to "Log clipboard contents and enable restore".
      Tick it to be able to restore the previous clipboard (Edit | Paste Special 
      | Restore Previous Clipboard). Untick it if you don't care and want to 
      save that memory and CPU.

    + Configuration | File Operations | Undo & Action Log | Clipboard: Added 
      option "Watch the clipboard". So you now you can turn off all the recent 
      enhancements concerning the clipboard if you are not interested. Saves a 
      little memory, CPU, and climate.
      If you untick it then you cannot restore the clipboard anymore, and the 
      Edit Clipboard button will not reflect the current state of the clipboard 
      anymore. You still get the clipboard preview when hovering that button.
      The new factory default is OFF. If you want it tick it.

    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: Wait
      Action: Yields execution for a specified time so that the operating system 
              can process other events.
      Syntax: wait [msecs]
        msecs:  Number of milliseconds to wait.
                Allowed values: 0 to 2147483647 (= 0x7fffffff = ~ 25 days)
      Examples:
        wait;       //minimum yield: let the OS do one thing
        wait 2000;  //let the OS do its things for 2 seconds (2000 ms)
        wait 60000; //wait a minute
        wait 1000; echo "Hi!"; //show message after 1 second
      Remark:
        This command exists for a long time but had not been officially 
        documented yet. I waited about 315569260000 ms.
    * Tabs: The tooltip of named tabs now shows the path first, and then the 
      name in the 2nd line. That way you get the interesting info first.
