    % Speed: An experimental change on 20240225 may have caused delays in certain contexts 
      on certain systems. The experiment has now been experimentally withdrawn.

v25.80.0006 - 2024-03-31 20:19
    + Native Non-Editable Dropdowns: Now these controls have learned a trick that standard 
      Windows dropdowns have always been able to do: When the control is focused and the 
      list is not dropped, the arrow keys (Up, Down, PageUp, PageDown, Home, End) can step 
      through the available values without dropping the list.
      To drop down (open) the list you can use F4.
      An example for such a control is Info Panel | Find Files | Name & Location | Maximum 
      Depth.
    ! Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability | Context Menus | Native context 
      menu: When checked then "Show 64-bit Context Menu" did not work in the tree when 
      called from a 32-bit context menu forced by holding down CTRL. Fixed.

v25.80.0007 - 2024-04-01 18:16
    + SC toolbar enhanced: Now you can get and set non-current button sets.
      Syntax: toolbar([buttons], [size], [set])
        set: index of set, one-based (first set = 1).
            If missing the current set is used.
      Examples:  
        text toolbar(2:=3); //return button set #3
        toolbar("tbs,{menus_all},|,hotlist,dice,dark", , 3); //set button set #3
        toolbar(toolbar(), 2:=2);  //set button set #2 to current button set
        toolbar(toolbar(2:=3));  //set current button set to button set #3
    + List: The Cell Context Menu (Ctrl+Right-Click) now works in the Recycle Bin, too. 
      However, it is somewhat limited because certain things are not possible (e.g. 
      editing the Deleted date) and certain things are not supported (Live Filter, Quick 
      Search).
    > File Operations: Removed a line of code added on 20240313 to the refresh procedure 
      called after each file operation. It could cause delays on some systems when 
      Content-Based Folder Icons are enabled.
    + Configuration | Information | Tags | Label style: Now you can tweak the label to 
      touch the grid (no gaps on all four sides) and to draw the text left-aligned instead 
      of centered.
        LabelTouchGrid=1
        LabelLeftAlign=1
      Affects styles "Name Column" and "Label Column (Caption)".
    ! SC inputselect: Since 20231120, the listdata separator | (style 1024) was 
      incorrectly present in the return if an item had no data. Fixed.

    + Toolbar: The right-click menu button "Switch Toolbar Button Set" and of the right 
      empty end of the toolbar has been reorganized. Now you can directly switch to any of 
      the four button sets from here.
    - Undid this rather dumb decision from v22.40.0233 - 2021-11-17 19:46:
      * List | Drives Listing: Now the Free Space is displayed with flexible size 
        units, regardless of the setting of "Tools | Customize List | Size Column 
        Format", so that you see meaningful information, eg "2.34 MB" instead of 
        "0.00 GB".
      The setting of "Tools | Customize List | Size Column Format" is back in business.

    % Dark Mode: Finally managed to draw dropdowns (aka comboboxes) correctly. Yeah!
      Windows 10 and later only.
    * Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Dual Pane | Shade inactive pane: Made the default 
      shading a little softer.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0255.
    ! Configuration | General | Startup & Exit | Adjust to OS light/dark mode at startup: 
      Simply did not work on fresh installations, despite being the factory default. Fixed.

    * Info Panel | Find Files | Name & Location: Replaced three native non-editable 
      drop-down lists with common Windows controls. This was made possible by the recent 
      breakthrough in drawing dropdowns in dark mode.
    * Live Filter Box: Slightly cooler icon in dark mode
    * Toolbar | Go to Previous Location: Slightly cooler icon.
    * Statusbar on Startup: The "subfolder check" information is no longer displayed. It 
      just made people nervous. The job is now done quietly in the background.
    % Custom Toolbar Buttons: Improved drawing quality of ICO files used as icons.

v25.80.0201 - 2024-04-04 15:17
    + Custom Event Actions: A new event "After Rename" has been added to the "File 
      Operations" section. It is fired when a rename operation is completed in the tree or 
      list. The only possible action is "Run Script". The following new variables can be 
      used in the script:
        <CEA_RenamedOld>      //full path/name before the rename
        <CEA_RenamedNew>      //full path/name after the rename
      Proof of concept script (paste into Configuration | General | Custom Event Actions | 
      After rename | Script):
        text <<<DOC
        File Operation: Rename
        Old Name: <CEA_RenamedOld>
        New Name: <CEA_RenamedNew>
          DOC;
      Notes:
      - The event is fired when XYplorer has done all the updating, refreshing and 
        repainting that needs to be done after a rename.
      - The event does not fire after a Rename Special operation is performed.
      - The event does not fire when editing drive labels.
    * List: The inline rename box is now closed *before* all the updating, refreshing, and 
      repainting that happens after a rename. Oddly enough, this used to be done after.
    + Toolbar | Go to Previous Location: Now the previous location is displayed in the 
      tooltip of the button.
      Note that "previous" means within the session. So right after startup the button 
      will do nothing.

    + Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs: Added option "Tabsets can revert after saving 
      settings". Check it to allow "Tabsets | Revert to Saved" to revert to an explicitly 
      saved version of a tabset (Tabsets | Save) even after using "Save Settings". This 
      allows you to always return to your favorite tab layout.
      This adds the (somewhat misnamed) tweak TabsetsCanRevertAcrossSessions to the GUI.
