      Syntax: loadtree [pathlist], [modify], [flags]
        flags: (bit field)        
         1: Do not trigger browsing the selected path after loading the tree.

    ! Toolbar | Bookmark Buttons: Could not drag and drop images from the web onto them. 
      Fixed.
    ! Toolbar | Bookmark Buttons: Bookmarks pointing to RAF did not get the proper icon at

:!!: 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.

v25.90.0146 - 2024-05-15 15:10
    + Scripting got a new function.
      Name: RAF
      Action: Sets, adds, or removes Rapid Access Folders.
      Syntax: raf(itemlist, [mode=a], [separator=CRLF])
        itemlist: List of items, separated by separator, to set, add, or remove.
        mode: Type of action.
          a: [Default] Add to current RAF.
          r: Remove from current RAF.
             First it compares the passed items with the display names (left of ">" in the 
             definition). If there is no match, it compares them with the target paths 
             (right of ">" in the definition).
          s: Set as new RAF (dump previous).
        separator: List separator. Defaults to CRLF.
        return: The current RAF, separated by separator.
      Examples:
        raf("C:\Windows"); //add Windows folder
        raf("C:\Windows|Downloads", a, "|"); //add Windows and Downloads folder
        raf("<xydata>"); //add XYplorer data folder (automatic display name)
        raf("XY Config><xydata>"); //add XYplorer data folder (explicit display name)
        text raf(<clp>, s); //set whatever is in the clipboard, return current RAF
        raf("Windows", r); //remove Windows folder (by display name)
        raf("C:\Windows", r); //remove Windows folder (by target path)
        text raf(); //just return current RAF
    ! Tree | Rapid Access: MUSD on VFO RAF got the bottom item wrong. Fixed.
    ! Hover Box: Various Hover Boxes over special items in RAF, MUSD on RAF, and 
      Breadcrumb Dropdowns, did not work alright. Fixed.

    * Opening Items With Overlong Filenames (> 259 Characters): They are now converted to 
      DOS 8.3 short filenames before being passed to the opening application, because many 
      applications still cannot handle overlong filenames.
      Note that DOS 8.3 short filenames must be enabled on the volume for this to work.
    ! File | To Clipboard | Item Short Path/Name(s): Has stopped working properly some 
      weeks ago. Fixed.

    + Drag Status Box Colors (Tweak): The colors for dragging over Bookmarks and Rapid 
      Access have been appended to the default values of the tweak DragStatusClasses, so 
      you can now control them.
      This is now the factory default (slightly changed the Rapid Access color):
        DragStatusClasses=5495DC|FEA311|81409C|A0A0A0|C7E6B7|62A0B1|4AB3A3
      Should work nicely for upgraders; nothing to do.
    + Catalog: Now you can add folders to RAF by dropping them onto a catalog item 
      pointing to "Rapid Access" (or locale-independent %rapidaccess%).
    + Catalog | Item Properties | Edit: Now the state of "Word wrap" is remembered across 
      calls and sessions.
    % Tree | Rapid Access: Now existing RAFs are not completely collapsed when adding a 
      new one, but remain untouched.
    ! Rapid Access: Fixed a couple of glitches concerning tree refresh and location.
    ! Opening Items With Overlong Filenames (> 259 Characters): Did not work yet for 
      multiple items. Fixed.
    ! Overlong Filenames: Items with overlong names did not always get the correct generic 
      icon in various parts of the interface. Fixed.

    + SC ControlPosition enhanced: The Preview Pane can now be referenced by "PP".
        echo ControlPosition("PP");  //Preview Pane
    * Hover Box | Rounded Corners: Now ensures a minimum frame width when rounded corners 
      are enabled, otherwise it looks unbearably bad.
    % Tree | Rapid Access: Existing RAFs are no longer completely collapsed when removing 
      some of them, but remain untouched.

    ! List | Status Column: Two commands were still missing from the interface and the 
      internal matrix. You could not assign keyboard shortcuts them, and the three Tags 
      columns were out of sync with some internal realities. Now everything is good again. 
      These are the newly added commands with their IDs:
        #317	View | Sort By | Status
        #547	View | Columns | Status
      This also fixes a bug that was introduced with the addition of the Status column: 
      #335; sorted by Len instead of Label.
    ! Opening Files: Since 20240515, files with spaces in the name were not passed 
      correctly (i.e. in quotes) to the opening application. Fixed.
