    * Switched from a SHA-1 to a SHA-2 code signing certificate. Note that the 
      timestamp (as shown in "XYplorer.exe / Properties / Digital Signatures") 
      is still in SHA-1, but this should not matter.

    + MLS: Catalan is now supported. Status: 100% translated (MLS 8.70).
    * SC quicksearch: Now the function ignores any active Visual Filter. It was 
      almost a bug that it previously obeyed to this GUI setting.
    * Miscellaneous | Go To | Go to Shortcut Target: This command now works on 
      the focused item (be it selected or not). Before it worked on the current 
      item (= actively selected by click or keyboard).
    * File | Open with Arguments...: Now also common Windows scripts types like 
      JS, VBS, PY, etc are recognized as executables and are run directly with 
      the passed arguments.
    ! Hover effect could get stuck after minimizing/restoring the app. Fix #2.

    * Catalog: Visual Filter toggling items (e.g. Location: |*.jpg) now get the 
      Toolbar's Visual Filter icon. Before, they had a generic folder icon with 
      a small overlay.
    * Help | About XYplorer: Window not wide enough for Russian and maybe other 
      languages. Made wider.
    ! Maxi Tree: The current node got expanded on inserting a removable drive. 
      Fixed. Now it correctly remembers its expansion state.

    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0078.
    ! SC copyto/moveto: Error (#93) when open brackets in passed source 
      filenames led to invalid wildcard patterns. Fixed. Now all brackets are 
      handled as literal characters. Only wildcards * and ? are allowed in the 
      source argument.
    ! Unlocking: Now soft hyphens are correctly handled where they appear in the 
      reg data instead of the hard hyphens (minus characters).
      Background: Some editors and PDF viewers apparently auto-replace hard by 
      soft hyphens which gives key validation algorithms a hard time.

    * Due to WOW64 File System Redirection you cannot copy files to the system 
      directory from an unelevated instance of XYplorer. If you try they will 
      end up in the SysWOW64 directory (after OK-ing the elevation prompt).
      Now when you try to do so the operation is aborted along with the 
      following message:
        "You need administrator rights to copy files to C:\Windows\System32."

    ! Maxi Tree: The current node got expanded on inserting a removable drive. 
      Fix #2. The first fix spoilt retaining the tree structure across sessions.
    ! MP3 Special Properties: Some fields were not retrieved for some ID3 
      versions. Fixed.
    ! Tweak PopupMenusAtSelection: Did not work with "Show the 64-bit context 
      menu". Fixed.
    > SC readfile: This command will not read more than 100 MB at a time. To 
      read larger files use the "start" parameter and do it portion by portion.
      This information has been missing from the help so far. Will be added soon.
      Note that the "start" parameter points to the *character* position in case 
      of text files (in double-byte encodings this is different from the byte 
      position).

    + Scripting: Added two undercover commands that will not appear in the 
      official help but could be useful for debugging and other pastimes.
      - Name: Error
        Action: Generates and catches a specific error.
        Syntax: error errnumber;
        Example: error 11;  //Division by Zero
      - Name: Crash
        Action: Generates a specific error and crashes on it.
        Syntax: crash errnumber;
        Example: crash 11;  //Division by Zero
    ! Maxi Tree: The current node got expanded on inserting a removable drive.

    % Auto-Refresh: Optimized list refresh operations. Should result in a 
      notable speed-up especially on slow network drives.
    * Scripting: Slight change in the syntax of the recent newcomers:
      Syntax: error [errnumber=1];
      Syntax: crash [errnumber=1];      
    * Thumbnails: The changes in v13.70.0162 - 2014-02-24 11:17 made thumbs 
      padding dependent on the selection style (Configuration | Styles | 
      Selections). Undone! Now padding is independent again.

v16.10.0307 - 2016-01-14 12:30
  +++ Global Visual Filters: Total rewrite from scratch. Global Visual Filters 
      and normal Visual Filters are now completely independent from each other 
      and both support the full Visual Filter syntax.
      - The slightly odd (but still generally useful!) "nec:" and "no:" prefixes 
        are not needed at all anymore for GVFs. Not openly and not internally.
      - GVFs fully support RegExp, and you can combine a GVF RegExp with a VF 
        RegExp or with a VF wildcard pattern (or pattern list) or vice versa. 
        Anything goes.
      - You can add captions and comments to both GVFs and VFs.
      - Both GVFs and VFs support Master Invert by a prefixed "!", for normal 
        patterns as well as for RegExp.
      - Mixed separators (| and ;) are okay, so GVF can be "*.txt|*.xys" and VF 
        at the same time can be "a*;b*". No problem.
      - Both GVFs and VFs support their own scope prefixes (show all folders, 
        hide all folders, etc).
      So, Global Visual Filters, alone and in combination with normal Visual 
      Filter, are now totally easy to do and more powerful at the same time. No 
      extra rules to learn, it just works as you'd expect it to work.
    + Custom Event Actions (CEA): Custom event "Double-click on the 
      tree's/list's white space" enhanced (currently only as a tweak).
        [Settings]
        CEA_TreeListDoubleClickOnWhite=5
      New value 5:
        5 = Refresh Tree / List (depending on which was dbl-clicked)
    ! Tiles Views: Did not show any file info tip if "Configuration | File Info 
      Tips | Show info tips only when hovering file icon" was ticked. Fixed. Now 
      it does (when hovering the caption, since there is no small icon in this 
      view).
    ! The custom command line interpreter didn't work with shortnames, e.g. 
      "powershell". Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

    + Added additional default keyboard shortcuts Alt+Up and Alt+Down to the 
      following commands:
        Go | Up   (Backspace, Alt+Up)
        Go | Down (Shift+Backspace, Alt+Down)
      Note that Alt+Up is also used in Windows Explorer for the same function. 
      Of course, Windows Explorer has nothing as cool as Go | Down.
      Note that upgraders will not automatically get the new shortcuts.
    - The archaic "AutoSyncTree" from v7.00.0053 - 2008-04-26 22:02 which has 
      long been replaced by "LockTree" has finally been removed from the code 
      and is no longer supported.
    ! Menu View | Reset Tree: Was too radical on a locked Mini Tree. Now all 
      direct childs of "This PC" are retained on a reset.
    ! The custom command line interpreter didn't work with shortnames, e.g. 
      "powershell". Fix #3.
