===============================================================================
Change log for version 2.0
===============================================================================
New features:

(1) Added a new quick lookup feature. You can now use {Ctrl}+{F2} optionally including the {Shift} or {Alt} keys
followed by a single alphanumeric character (within a few seconds) such that that alphanumeric character may be
used to quickly select one or more lookup list urls. Each item description may optionally be decorated at the
beginning with one or more alphanumeric characters followed by a colon. When the character selected by the keystroke
following {Ctrl}+{F2} or one of the other variants matches one of those "decorations" the list item will be selected.
Note that the match is case-insensitive, viz., "Q" will match "q".

{Ctrl}+{F2} then keystroke ==> use tbe browser to open the matched urls (see below)
{Ctrl}+{Shift}+{F2} then keystroke ==> open the matched urls in RCFV (with the option to open in the browser instead)
{Ctrl}+{Alt}+{F2} then keystroke ==> append the matched urls to the scratchpad

For example, if the list items are as follows:

[q:Qwant] https://www.qwant.com/?client=ext-chrome-sb&q=??&t=web
[g2:Google] https://www.google.com/search?q=??&num=100
[b2:Bing] https://www.bing.com/search?q=??
[i:Bing images ***] https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=?? ;***: USE BROWSER ONLY

"g" following {Ctrl}+{F2}, etc. selects Google, "b" selects Bing, and "2" selects both

( 2) All variants of lookup may now be done from the scratchpad as well using whatever text is highlighted or the
current word, if any.
( 3) Added the ability to right-click a normal filter button highlight color to be able to copy that color
to all subsequent buttons to its right
( 4) Added an option to "Copy and edit" to copy the simplified HTML of the viewer text directly to the
clipboard obviating the need to copy the HTML from a browser tab
( 5) Added an unescape function for selected text in the scratchpad to deal with "encoded" urls such as
https://chrt.fm/track/15E3G4/traffic.megaphone.fm/GLT9156179404.mp3
( 6) Added the ability to use F7 (paste special RCFV control characters) in the scratch pad
( 7) Added support for the tab key in the scratchpad
( 8) Added support for column selection where the columns are delimited by multiple spaces, e.g.,
$^2s will select the third column where the columns are delimited by one or more spaces
( 9) {Alt}+{/} may be used anywhere to toggle the control panel and make the viewer the active control. Note that the
{/} key may only be used to do this when the viewer is the active control.

Fixes:

( 1) Fixed FastReplace error due to unsorted inputs
( 2) Fixed problem with "$" (dollar sign) regular expression character when used in a Find {F3}
( 3) Modified the code which inserts "^" and/or "$" in strings dragged from the
viewer to the Find input box or one of the filter input boxes
( 4) Fixed lack of removal of "+-" context character prefix when converting to simplified HTML
( 5) Fixed a regression where extended regular expressions starting with "$^::", viz., match the
underlying url value of a standard hyperlink instead of the link text, was not working
( 6) Fixed an issue which prevented HTML text from being processed in RCFV directly
( 7) Fixed lack of support for as a delimiter character for column selection, e.g.,
$^2 will select the third column where the columns are delimited by tabs
( 8) Fixed a problem where the length of MS Office files was calculated incorrectly since it used the actual
length of the source file but not the length of the (automatically) converted text file which is displayed
( 9) Fixed an issue where a new fvf file was unable to be saved due to an invalid file name
(10) Fixed a problem where very small web pages were not displayed properly
(11) Added support for text lines delimited solely by a carriage-return, x'0d'
(12) Fixed a problem where a single line dropped into the include or exclude list input box would be
automatically added to the list box

plus other minor bug fixes
