    + Added tweak to show informative file info tips for EXE files:
        FileInfoTipExe=1
      This had been removed recently and silently because under Win10 file info 
      tips for EXE files got extremely slow (probably due to anti-virus).
    ! GUI could break temporarily when app was minimized on a Windows theme 
      change. Fixed.

v19.50.0101 - 2019-01-02 19:21
    + Custom Toolbar Buttons: Now you can define the color for a circle drawn as 
      background to your icon. This can be useful in Dark Mode where some dark 
      icons otherwise tend to disappear in the darkness.
      You simply append the RRGGBB color spec to the icon spec, separated by 
      "*#" (yes, this is a bit weird but there is a lot of parsing going on and we 
      don't want any ambiguities), for example (in the Edit User Button dialog):
        Name: Dark Cloud
        Icon: c4.ico*#F6F6F6
      This will draw a circle of color #F6F6F6 behind your "Dark Cloud" icon 
      "c4.ico". The Dark Cloud will be visible in Dark Mode.
      Note that you can abuse this feature to use colored circles as icons. 
      Simply drop the file name:
        Name: Golden Circle
        Icon: *#FEB914
    + Catalog: The same colored background circle trick also works in the 
      Catalog when you use custom icons for an item. For example:
        Caption: umlaut-phobia|c3.ico*#F6F6F6 
    ! Dark Mode: The following toolbar graphics did not work well in Dark Mode:
      - Customize Keyboard [cks]
      - Manual Sorting [mansort]
      Now they do.      
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v19.50.0102 - 2019-01-03 18:42
    + Configuration | Information | File Info Tips: Added option "For 
      executables as well". Tick it to show informative file info tips for EXE 
      files.
      It's optional because under Win10 file info tips for EXE files got 
      extremely slow (probably due to anti-virus).
      This raises the tweak FileInfoTipExe to the UI.
    + Custom Toolbar Button Backgrounds: Now you can define a rectangular shape 
      by appending "r" separated by a comma, eg:
        Name: Dark Cloud
        Icon: c4.ico*#F6F6F6,r
    + Custom Toolbar Button Backgrounds: Now they also work with toolbar 
      graphics, eg:
        Icon: :ghost*#F6F6F6,r
    ! Hover Box: Long filename could be cropped too late when icon was shown in 
      the status section. Fixed.

v19.50.0104 - 2019-01-04 16:36
    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Show Age maximum hours: Now 
      you can also specify factors with date units other than "hour", e.g.:
        Value   Meaning
           1    1 hour
          1h    1 hour
          2d    2 days
          3w    3 weeks
          4m    4 months
          5q    5 quarters of a year
          6y    6 years
    % Toolbar in Dark Mode: Improved the look of the "Toggle Instant Color 
      Filter" button.
      If you want to use it in custom buttons etc, the key is ":icfdark".
    * Breadcrumb Bars in Dark Mode: Now the inactive pane's breadcrumbs are 
      drawn a bit darker. Makes the active pane stand out better.
    ! Breadcrumb Bars in Dark Mode: Border color was not dark yet when 
      "Configuration | Colors and Styles | Highlights & Dark Mode | Borders" was 
      set to "Windows Theme Style". Fixed.
    ! Info Panel: When switching to Dark Mode tabs where drawn non-dark when 
      "Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs | Visual style" was set to "XYplorer 
      Classic Style". Fixed.
      The switch is still not perfect under these rare conditions. There's a 
      minor glitch left that will be fixed later.
    ! SC extracttext: Did not work anymore since 20181130. Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.
