What's new in this version:

Help rewrite:
- A new help file was written from scratch, which you can enjoy with F1 key in the main program window (HELP > QUICK START menu) and also in many dialogs that have a [?] on their titlebar (pressing F1 in dialogs works too for context sensitive help)
- It is an amagalmation of program information, tips and tricks, demo videos and the most popular blog posts over the years. Hopefully it will be the only stop you need for getting help on xplorer². It is double the size of the old help manual!

As the help rewrite took 2 months, there wasn't time for many new xplorer² features, except for the following small improvements:
- experimental: fuzzy groups with k-clustering AI algorithm using a negative fuzzy percentage (negative number K is how many clusters to create). It organizes items in terms of mutual "nearness" with respect to the selected property. Text properties like NAME cannot be clustered at present, only dates and numbers. See the documentation on fuzzy groups for details
- improved dark mode for windows 10/11 (menus, listview headers etc)
- (same improvements for editor² v2.993)
- fixed folder background menu problem (e.g. open powershell here etc)
- better dragdrop images for win10
- date group "future" for freak files that are modified later than now (!) Probably indication there's something wrong with your system clock
- symlinks can have their OWN (not that of pointed file's) date changed using ACTIONS > CHANGE ATTRIBUTES menu
- new tip 34a for faster recycle bin
- since xplorer² no longer runs on windows 98 (!) I have removed the ANSI versions from the 32 bit installer, only unicode stuff
- improved performance of thumbnail (large icons) view searching
- updated advanced settings editor with the following 3 options:
- GAO2_NOCPWATCHDOG (=32) don't install robust copy watchdog that monitors network availability and raises an alarm if things go slow; allow slow copies
- GAO2_NOHTMLTHUMBS (=131072) disable HTML thumbnail extraction, if you really hate internet explorer
- nMaxCopyThreads maximum allowable parallel robust copy operations (you should really use the queue and avoid parallel copies); 0 disables the limit
