v21.50.0120 - 2021-02-12 18:36
    + Configuration | Preview | Preview | Text preview | UTF-8 auto-detection:
      Generally, the automatic UTF-8 encoding detection algorithm works 
      heuristically by inspecting the file's content searching for byte 
      sequences that look like UTF-8. This heuristic is not 100% reliable, of 
      course (it's simply not possible), but in real world conditions the 
      results are pretty good.
      Now to save time, XYplorer's algorithm does not inspect the whole file but 
      only the beginning of it, by default this has been the first 4 KB so far.
      It turned out that this is not enough in many real world scenarios. So, I 
      did two things:
      - Raised the default to 256 KB.
      - Added a way to customize this value; for now this is possible via a tweak:
          CheckForBOMlessUTF8SizeKB=256
        The maximum allowed value here is 4096 (= 4096 KB, i.e. the first 4 MB 
        of the file are scanned).
    ! Status Bar: On small resolution screens (like 1024x768) the status bar 
      sections would overlap each other under certain conditions. Fix #3.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download 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.
It's a good idea to backup your complete XYplorer settings (menu File | Settings Special | Backup Application Data Folder...)
before running a new BETA version. This will also help in fixing any fresh bugs.

      use a different strategy than other searches). Fixed.
      Example:

v21.50.0116 - 2021-02-10 14:19
    + SC QuickSearch enhanced: New flag "t" includes the top folders themselves 
      in a multi-location search, i.e. top folders that match the search 
      criteria are returned in the search results.
      Syntax: quicksearch([query="*"], [path], [separator="<crlf>"], [flags])
        flags:  [optional] String of flags to modify the function.
                t: Include top folders in multi-location search.
      Examples:
        text quicksearch("f*", "D:\folder1|D:\folder2", , "t");
        text quicksearch("f*", "D:\folder1|D:\folder2", 3:="t");
    * Small dialogs with a Live Filter Box: When the cursor/focus is in the box 
      you now can press ESC to clear the box and thereby reset the filter. Only 
      when the box is empty ESC will close the dialog.
      That way the small Live Filter Boxes now work the same as the main Live 
      Filter Box that controls the file list.
      This new behavior can be tweaked off like this:
        LiveFilterResetOnEsc=0
    * Custom Event Actions: The SkipBrowseEvents tweak is now saved between 
      sessions.
    ! Status Bar: On small resolution screens (like 1024x768) the status bar 
      sections would overlap each other under certain conditions. Fix #2.

    + SC get("listofcommands") enhanced: Now you can return the list of all 
      commands *including* the accelerators (marked by a prefixed 
      "&"-character).
      Syntax: get("listofcommands", [flags], [separator=CRLF])
        flags: (bit field)
          4 = Include accelerators.
      Example:
        text get("listofcommands", 4);
    * List: From now on, the Path column is used as 2ndary sort field (ascending 
      order) in Find mode (incl. Branch View). Before, the Name column was used.
    ! Status Bar: On small resolution screens (like 1024x768) the status bar 
      sections would overlap each other under certain conditions. Fixed.

    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: PopupNativeContextMenu
      Action: Pops a native context menu for all selected list items.
      Syntax: popupnativecontextmenu
      Remarks:
      - It's a lightning-fast 100% native context menu (no shell involved).
      - The command won't pop any menu when there are no selections in the 
        list.
      - If there are selections in the list the command will set the input focus 
        to the list (if it's not there already). Otherwise various menu commands 
        would not work as expected. So, SC PopupNativeContextMenu ONLY works for 
        items in the file list, not in the folder tree.
      Examples:
        popupnativecontextmenu;
      This script in CEA "Left-click on status bar" will pop a native context 
      menu on left-clicking the first section of the status bar:
        if (<CEA_ClickedItem> == 1) {popupnativecontextmenu;}
    * Edit | Select | Selection Stats: The dialog now has the caption "List 
      Stats" (instead of "Selection Stats") if nothing is selected.

    + SC QuickSearch enhanced: Added flag "l" to return directories with a

      Syntax: quicksearch([query="*"], [path], [separator="<crlf>"], [flags])
        flags:  [optional] String of flags to modify the function.
                l: Return directories with a trailing backslash. (l=lower case L)

        text quicksearch("a*", , , "l");
        text quicksearch("a*", 3:="l");

    + Find Files | Name & Location | Invert: Now the caption is shown in red 
      when the box is ticked. Makes it easier to note this important setting.
    * Status Bar: From now on in Branch View with "Show Folder Sizes" enabled 
      the total/selected bytes count only adds up the file bytes (not the folder 
      bytes), else we get double counts resulting in a wrong total.
      It's not perfect (when you select a folder and a file from a different 
      folder the total is lacking the size of the folder), but clearly better 
      than before. Since such a list is a complex self-containing thing I don't 
      think there is a perfect solution.
    % Configuration | General | Custom Event Actions: Now when you open the 
      Actions menu by clicking into the Action column you can close the menu by 
      clicking into the same column again. Before, the menu would pop again when 
      you did that.

    ! Tags: Since TagMaxTagsInMenu is tweakable (v21.40.0124 - 2021-01-12 16:18) 
      some menu commands called the wrong functions because some hard indices 
      had not yet been made soft. Fixed.
      BTW, the TagMaxTagsInMenu tweak is now limited to a maximum of 99.
    ! Configuration | General | Custom Event Actions: List had a horizontal 
      scrollbar when it was not necessary. Fixed.

      - The next 6 actions are all found in that order in menu View | Sort By.

      falsely listed in the MRU list when typing e.g. "-" or "m". Fixed.

  +++ Mouse Down Blow Up Zoomed: Ready for another game changer? MDBU now can 
      zoom into the original by a freely configurable zoom factor. Got small 
      images, large screens, and weak eyes? MDBUZ is your ticket.
      To enable the feature tick "Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up | 
      General | Apply zoom" and enter a percentage of your choice.
      - Note that you can also enter a value smaller than 100 to pop a preview 
        smaller than the original. For what it's worth.
      - Allowed values: 10 - 1000.
      - The zoom applies to all MDBUs (thumbnails, icons, preview tab, preview 
        pane, floating preview) and all MDBUs that show an image (so also e.g. 
        PDFs).
      - An internal upper limit is currently hard-coded to 50,000,000 square 
        pixels. Otherwise zooming large images by 1000% (note that MDBUZ shows 
        the whole image, not just a part) will destroy your computer... ;) well, 
        it will just stop working. Can be made configurable later.
      - Note that the blow up obeys to "Shrink to fit" if ticked.
    ! Configuration | Colors and Styles | Highlights & Dark Mode | Recent 
      location pins | Maximum number of pins: Number increased by one which each 
      session since 20210113. Fixed.
