    ! Custom Copy: When dropping stuff from the outside you only get foreground 
      operations (unless you tweak via BJAllowDropFromOutside=1). Now when 
      dropping another load while the previous operation was still going on 
      problems started. You would not be allowed to do it, and it would stay 
      like this forever (within the session), even when the first operation had 
      completed. You also wouldn't get an automatic refresh of the target 
      location anymore. So something was deeply wrong. Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

   + Message Preview: Now you get a 32-bit WYSIWYG preview for MSG files. No 
     need for Preview64.exe here (actually it fails to do it and has been 
     excluded from even trying). Tested on Win8.1 with Office 2010, and on Win10 
     with Office 365.
     FYI, it apparently works the same with both preview handler GUIDs:
      {435fdba0-964c-43a7-8aff-cc94e21b2249}
      {53BEDF0B-4E5B-4183-8DC9-B844344FA104}

   + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: Preview64
      Action: Sets sequence of preview attempts and optional fallback.
      Syntax: preview64 [tryfirst], [fallback]
        tryfirst    0 = try 32-bit first
                    1 = try 64-bit only (fallback not implemented)
                    missing or empty: toggle
        fallback    0 = no fallback
                    1 = fall back to other bitness
      Examples:
        preview64; //toggle
        preview64 "";  //just show current state in status bar
        preview64 "v"; //show the version number of Preview64.exe
        preview64 0; //try 32-bit first, on failure fallback to 64-bit
        preview64 1; //try 64-bit only (fallback not implemented)
        preview64 0, 1; //try 32-bit first, on failure fallback to 64-bit
        preview64 0, 0; //try 32-bit first, no fallback to 64-bit
      Remarks:
        Factory default is "try 32-bit first, on failure fallback to 64-bit":
          preview64 0, 1; 
    * 64-bit Preview: Media files are excluded from it for now. Otherwise we 
      would lose the fallback to Quartz.dll (DirectShow) if no preview handlers 
      are found, which is important for a large number of formats.
    ! Preview: Since fixing the font preview for Dark Mode certain non-font file 
      formats would error out on trying to preview them. Fixed.

    * SC get("bitness"): Changed the return from numbers to a full string (not 
      translated by MLS so you know what to expect while scripting), and added 
      two new cases so we have 5 possible returns now:
        16-bit
        32-bit
        64-bit
        64-bit Itanium
        (unknown)
      Tip: In a Custom Column you can use this line in the Script field:
        return get("bitness", <cc_item>);
      Note that there is quite a number of file types that can have the 
      PE-format, not just EXE and DLL, for example: acm, ax, com, cpl, dat, dll, 
      drv, exe, iec, lrc, ocx, rll, rs, scr, tlb, tsp.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.122.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.122.lng is uploaded.
        You will be notified if you have subscribed to this thread:

    ! Floating Preview: The font preview was hardly readable in Dark Mode. 
      Fixed.
      Note: The Floating Preview font preview does not work yet in the 64-bit 
      Preview, hence fonts here are only previewed using 32-bit handlers in the 
      Floating Preview. In the Preview tab XY's native font preview is used so 
      this is not affected at all.
    ! 64-bit Preview: Alignment issues with Word documents. Fixed.

    + 64-bit Preview: Now you can tweak XY so that the 64-bit Preview is used 
      right away:
        Preview64=1
      Note that no fallback to 32-bit is implemented so if the 64-bit Preview 
      fails you get nothing.

    + SC get got a new named argument "bitness". Use it to determine the bitness 
      (32 or 64) of a binary file (typically EXE or DLL). On failure it returns 0.
      Syntax: get("bitness", [file])
      Examples:
        echo get("bitness");  //bitness of the selected file
        echo get("bitness", "E:\XY\XYplorer\Preview64.exe");  //64
      Remarks:
        Quite easy now to make a Custom Column showing these values for EXE and 
        DLL files. For background info google "PE Format".

    + Preview: Now supports preview of EML files (also the 32-bit preview!).
      Note that you have to untick EML in "Configuration | Preview | Previewed 
      Formats | Text Files" and tick it in "Configuration | Preview | Previewed 
      Formats | Office Files" else you just get a raw textual preview.
    * 64-bit Preview: Now the preview handler based previews (typically Office 
      files, PDF, EML) prioritize the 32-bit handlers, and only on failure fall 
      back to the 64-bit handlers. That way some weirdnesses under certain 
      conditions with Office preview handlers can be avoided as much as 
      possible.
      Because of this logic no UI configuration for the new feature is 
      necessary for now. It just works.
    ! 64-bit Preview: Tried to fix a focus steal issue. Shot in the dark.

    + 64-bit Preview: Almost finished.
      - Now you can live-resize the preview area.
      - No more small window with Close button.
      - There still is a small loss-of-focus-flicker while the preview is 
        loaded. One day I might find a way to remove that.
      - There will be two settings in configuration later:
          - Use 64-bit preview handlers for Preview
          - Fall back to preview handlers of the other bitness
        Currently both are internally set to ON for testing.
        The fall back from 64 to 32 however does not work yet.
      - The file Preview64.exe is now part of the install/non-install package.
      - Still needs an icon.
    ! 64-bit Preview: Error in Floating / Full Screen Preview. Fixed.
    ! MLS: Some labels in the Find Files tab did not work alright in Russian 
      (and probably other languages based on a codepage) in certain contexts. 
      Fixed.
