* 2021-04-05: Version 4.8.0:
** new features:
- the "pattern select" command now has an option to directly apply
the configured filter without asking for the filter.
- a new option in the general settings allows to disable background
file existence tests for some path prefix.
- the path jump interface has a new option to only show relative
paths if the display mode is limited to sub directories. This
option is on by default.
- the path jump command has additional configuration settings to
select the initial display mode and whether to include all data
sources directly on start.
** improvements:
- popup help windows now only appear if the window has the focus,
and close when the window loses the focus.
** fixes:
- implement workaround for lost keyboard focus bug in some window
manager when closing multiple windows.
- fix handling of newlines when pasting content to text areas. If
the element was part of the configuration, it could become
unparsable due to the newline. Now newlines will be filtered when
pasting text.
- add a limit of background threads for file existence tests to
avoid crashes when the thread pool is exhausted. It usually
happened when there are entries in the path jump db or bookmark
for which stat() blocks until the device becomes available
again. Now Worker itself will eventually block until the device
becomes available again, except of crashing.
** other changes:
- the example script for showing the git branch in the list view bar
now outputs an asterisk if the current checkout has some modified
files. Also, it avoids using a lock which can interfere with
user-started git commands
- added lzip buttons and filetype
- updated Czech translation
