      Devices correctly. Fixed.

    * Tweak StatusBar3OnFile: Now you can append the template to the regular 
      status by beginning it with *.
      - For example, to have the CameraModel of the current file on the status 
        bar, you could always use this tweak:
          StatusBar3OnFile="<curname>, Camera: <prop CameraModel>"
        Now there is also this way:
          StatusBar3OnFile="*, Camera: <prop CameraModel>"
      - As another example, this will show the bitrate for the selected audio 
        file:
          StatusBar3OnFile="* - Bitrate: <prop #audio.bitrate>"
    * Preview Pane: Reduced the hard-coded outer margin for image previews from 
      16 to 4 pixels. You get more picture now for the same price.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

  +++ Mouse Up Show Down: Now it supports File Info Tips and Hover Box! Hover 
      the icon of any item listed in the MUSD list and you get the File Info Tip 
      or Hover Box just like in the normal list. This means you can check the 
      contents of folders before even opening them! It's a kind of magic... 
      Works for MUSD in Tree and List. You have nothing to do, it just works.
      Tip: To enable the so-called "Mouse Up Show Down" tick Configuration | 
      Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up | Mouse Up on Folder Icons | Folder contents 
      preview.
    ! Scripting | Step Mode: In the "Stepping through a Script" dialog the line 
      height did not correctly adjust to the font settings under all conditions. 
      Fixed.

    * Configuration | General | Tree and List | Items in Tree and List | Show 
      hidden files and folders: Now you can goto files via Address Bar or script 
      even when the folder is hidden from the Maxi Tree.
    ! SC base64encode and base64decode totally failed with Unicode characters, 
      e.g. โ‚ฌ or Japanese. Now the encoding and decoding go via UTF-8 encoding 
      and decoding, which seems to be the standard way to handle this.
        Encoding: Japanese -> UTF-8 -> Base64
        Decoding: Base64 -> UTF-8 -> Japanese
      Tip: To reverse-test the en/decoding via clipboard input you can use any 
      of these lines:
        text base64decode(base64encode(<clp>)); //visually check if the result is correct
        echo base64decode(base64encode(<clp>)) == <clp>?"Okay":"False"; //"Okay" if correct

    + Thumbnails: Experimentally 64-bit thumbnails are now supported for 
      SolidWorks files (SLDASM, SLDDRW, SLDPRT). These are the only file types 
      I'm currently aware of that ONLY ship with a 64-bit thumbnail handler.
      Note that at least one of these has to be ticked to make the above happen:
      - Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | 64-bit Windows | Use 64-bit 
        preview handlers for preview
      - Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | 64-bit Windows | Fall back 
        to preview handlers of the other bitness
    % Mouse Up Show Down: Now in Dark Mode, the background color of the list is 
      better distinguished from the background color of the main file list.
    ! Hover Box: Hotkey "B" (toggle background color) did not work with "Preview 
      as Thumbnail" files. Fixed.

    + Thumbnails: Added files formats from Serif Affinity Designer to the new 
      64-bit thumbnail service.
    * Hover Box and Mouse Down Blow Up: Now when done for text files the shown 
      box actually adjusts to the width of the contents. It is smaller for 
      narrow contents, and widens up to 2/3 of the screen width for wider 
      contents.
      Note: It now can happen that the Hover Box is so large that parts of it 
      reach under the mouse pointer. When that happens then moving the mouse 
      might not close the box (depending on other settings). But clicking the 
      box or pressing ESC will always close it.

      The conversion is hard-coded to IBM EBCDIC International (codepage 500) 
      and a record length of 80.

v21.20.0212 - 2020-11-13 12:26
    + Admin Settings: Added key "DisallowedDirsExcept" to define exceptions from 
      disallowed paths. You can use it to allow certain (or all) subpaths within 
      a disallowed branch.
      For example, these entries will allow all subfolders of E:\Test, but not 
      E:\Test itself.
        DisallowedDirs=E:\Test
        DisallowedDirsExcept=E:\Test\*\*
      Contrary to the values in DisallowedDirs the values (which are full paths) 
      in DisallowedDirsExcept are wildcard patterns. For example, these entries 
      here will allow all subfolders called "a" or "b", in any disallowed branch:
        DisallowedDirsExcept=*\a\|*\b\
    * Added tweak to auto-detect and auto-convert EBCDIC files. Now you pass the 
      CodePage and the RecLen right in the tweak, in the format "CP,RL", e.g.:
        CheckForEBCDIC=1047,80

    ! On 4K displays (3840 x 2160) various 1-pixel-wide lines (vertical grid 
      lines, toolbar separators, status bar separators) were not well visible.

    * On 4K displays (3840 x 2160) the toolbar buttons are now shown much bigger 
      (Extra Large x 1.5 = 72x72 pixels) by factory default.
      Note that this change is not applied when a "system enhanced" DPI override 
      is enabled for the app via shell properties.
    * Yesterday's 4K-1-pixel-wide lines fix is not applied when a "system 
      enhanced" DPI override is enabled for the app via shell properties.
    ! Screen Resolution >= 200% (which includes 4K): Fixed many display glitches.

    + Custom Copy: Added a tweak to define a bytes threshold for showing a 
      progress dialog that would not be shown for smaller byte counts.
      This, for example, would set the threshold to 100 MB:
        CustomCopyForceProgressFromBytes=104857600
      For jobs this size or larger a progress would be shown even if these are ticked:
      - Configuration | File Operations | File Operations | Custom Copy 
        Operations | No progress dialog on duplications
      - Configuration | File Operations | File Operations | Custom Copy 
        Operations | No progress dialog on intra-volume moves
      Notes:
      - Obviously the threshold applies only to duplications and intra-volume moves.
    + Configuration | File Operations | File Operations | External Copy 
      Handlers: Added a tweak to define a bytes threshold for actually using an 
      External Copy Handler. For any jobs with smaller byte counts the internal 
      Custom Copy is used.
      This, for example, would set the threshold to 100 MB:
        CustomCopyUseCopierOnlyFromBytes=104857600
    ! Configuration | General | Controls & More | Miscellaneous | Copy paths to 
      the clipboard with a trailing slash: Did not work in Breadcrumb's 
      right-click menu "Copy Path". Fixed.
