v19.90.0115 - 2019-05-19 22:41
    ! Labels: Since the max number of labels was raised to 32 (since v18.60.0201 
      - 2018-01-18 17:33) the labels #19 and #29 could not be set via the Label 
      column context menu or via the Toolbar button dropdown menu. Fixed.

      instead of to a subfolder of that special path. Fixed.

    + SC tab enhanced: New operation "textcolor" sets the Custom Text Color of a 
      tab. The "data" parameter holds the color in RRGGBB format. Example:
        tab("textcolor", "CCCCCC"); // make the text of the current tab grey
    + SC tab enhanced: New operation "backcolor" sets the Custom Text Color of a 
      tab. The "data" parameter holds the color in RRGGBB format. Example:
        tab("backcolor", "008000"); // make the background of the current tab green        
    + SC tab enhanced: The operation "get" got a new data parameter "textcolor":
        echo tab("get", "textcolor", [index]);
      Returns the Custom Text Color (if any) of the tab referred to by index in 
      RRGGBB format. Example:
        echo tab("get", "textcolor"); //text color of the current tab
    + SC tab enhanced: The operation "get" got a new data parameter "backcolor":
        echo tab("get", "backcolor", [index]);
      Returns the Custom Back Color (if any) of the tab referred to by index in 
      RRGGBB format. Example:
        echo tab("get", "backcolor"); //background color of the current tab
    + Tweak to prioritize "Configuration | Colors and Styles | Colors | Match 
      selected tab with breadcrumb bar" over Custom Colored Tabs:
        TabMatchSelectedWithCrumbPrio=1
    + Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Usability: Added option 
      "Wheel scroll lines (0 = use system value)". Use it to set the number of 
      lines that are scrolled for each notch that the mouse wheel is rotated. 
      Notes:
      - Set it to 0 to use the global system value.
      - The actually scrolled lines will never exceed a whole page. So you can 
        set it to a high value (eg 1000) to always scroll the whole page.
      - The value -1 is reserved by Windows for "whole page", so that's another 
        way to always scroll the whole page.
      - Values -2 and less will scroll in reversed direction.
    * Trial Version: From now on the nag screen is only shown on first run (for 
      information) and on the last day of the trial period (day #30). The 
      current day of the trial period is shown in the title bar instead. 
      Friendly rules.
    ! Recent Location Pins: Pins still bled into the corners of the TPT snake. 
      Fixed.

v19.90.0110 - 2019-05-14 17:39
  +++ Custom Colored Tabs: Now tabs can be individually colored. To define the 
      colors use these new commands, which are also available in each tab 
      header's context menu:
      - View | Tab | Text Color...
      - View | Tab | Background Color...
      Notes:
      - The custom colors have to be specified in hexadecimal format (RRGGBB). 
        To go back to the default colors simply specify nothing.
      - Of course, the colors are stored across sessions, and with tabsets.
      - These custom colors overwrite all other colors that otherwise might 
        apply to a tab.
      - A new tab does not inherit the custom colors of the current tab. On the 
        other hand, a tab moved or copied to the other pane does take 
        along/inherit the custom colors.
      - Like Color Filters these colors do not auto-adjust to Dark Mode. They 
        just stay as defined all the time.
        Exceptions:
        - In Dual Pane mode the custom colors are made a little duller and 
          darker in the back pane, otherwise you would have problems to 
          distinguish front and back pane.
        - A hover-effect (brighten) is auto-applied to the custom colors when 
          required.
    * Recent Location Pins: Improved the painting so that the pin does no bleed 
      into the Tree Path Trace but kind of crosses over it. Looks better.

    * Recent Location Pins: Now the number defaults to 12. You can tweak this 
      number here, e.g. set it to 4:
        RLPCount=4
    ! Undo: There was no Undo possible when a bunch of items was partially 
      deleted (because some of them were locked, others not). Fixed.

    + Tools | Customize Tree: Added "Recent Location Pins". Shows pins at the 8 
      most recent locations in the tree.
      Notes:
      - Currently the color is taken from Tree Path Tracing.
      - The current location pin has a slightly bigger head with a white center.
      - No pin is drawn at "This PC" because there not enough space.
      - Of course, size, color, and number can be made configurable later.
      - This is work in progress. Not totally happy with the current state. 
        Graphically it's a bit in conflict with Tree Path Tracing. But it might 
        be usable as an alternative to Tree Path Tracing. Play with it...
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.111.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.111.lng is uploaded.

    + Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs | On closing the current tab: Added 
      option "Activate the default tab". If there is no default tab defined it 
      will fall back to "Activate the right tab".
      Also changed the order of the options and the factory default:
        - Activate the right tab        [Factory Default]
        - Activate the left tab
        - Activate the last used tab
        - Activate the default tab

      this when your Standard License is out-dated) had some unreadable parts 
      (black on black) since Dark Mode was implemented. Fixed.
    ! Command Line Switches: The parameter /exp (ensures that the startup folder 
      is expanded in the tree) did not work anymore. Fixed.

    + Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs: Added option "Auto-select tabs on 
      drag-over". Tick it to auto-select tabs when being dragged-over.
      Note: Before, this was handled solely by the value stated in "Delay before 
      a dragged-over tab is auto-selected". The value 0 (zero) turned it off. 
      Now this is handled by a checkbox. Clearer.
    * Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs | Delay before a dragged-over tab is 
      auto-selected (in milliseconds): Now you can enter 0 (zero) for zero 
      delay. This value will not stop auto-select anymore as it did before.
