What's New

General

+ Send-to Handler Tool
$ This tool serves as a proxy window for file drag and drop operations (from File Explorer to Pandora), when direct drag and drop is not possible (due mismatched user-credentials in between Pandora and File Explorer).
$ Allows quick moving and copying of the original files, and simplifies attaching files from multiple folders.
$ Optionally - preserve files-list across sessions, for easy re-send or just to keep track.

+ Multiple simultaneous Pandora instances can be invoked now when data folder is specified via command-line, as long as each instance is using different data folder.
$ Data folder command-line parameter example: -data="M:\My Mail\"

Graphical User Interface

+ Send-to Handler menu item: Tools/Send to Handler.
$ When started from this menu, Send-to Handler is invoked with lower (Standard) credentials, if Pandora is running with Admin credentials (so we can drag/drop files from File Explorer).

* Floating multi-pane was preventing mouse and keyboard input, when at least one child-pane is docked to the edge (not-tabbed).
* Standalone window/Stack now supports multiple monitors (Window remains on current monitor).
+ Floating panes can be stacked now, via caption bar buttons.
+ Stack Left: Left Ctrl + Window/Stack.
$ Align window/pane to the left edge of current monitor/workspace and set it's width to 1/4 of the monitor/workspace width.
+ Stack Right: Right Ctrl + Window/Stack.
$ Align window/pane to the right edge of current monitor/workspace and set it's width to 1/4 of the monitor/workspace width.

# Mailboxes tree now meets Pandora's flicker-free standard.
