New features:
You can now use styles in the HTML editor.
The Bat! now splits long IMAP commands (of about 7500 characters or more) into shorter ones. This is needed for IMAP servers (e.g. Zimbra) that don't accept longer commands, e.g. when you move thousands of messages from one folder to another and the messages are not in a sequence.
New command-line parameter "/TLS_VERSION_RANGE:0-3" to specify lowest and highest SSL/TLS version minor byte number that The Bat! should support. "0" means SSL 3.0, "1" means TLS 1.0, "2" means TLS 1.1 and "3" means "TLS 1.2". For example, to disable SSL 3.0, use "/TLS_VERSION_RANGE:1-3". Another example to only allow TLS 1.2 is "/TLS_VERSION_RANGE:3-3".
New command-line parameter "/TLS_DISABLE_PERFECT_FORWARD_SECRECY" to disable perfect forward secrecy.
New command-line parameter /LOG_IA32CPUID to write list of CPU capabilities to the ex_log.txt file.
New command-line parameter (must be specified as the first parameter in order to be accepted, other parameters may follow it): "/SHA1_BENCHMARK". For example, you can run /SHA1_BENCHMARK /NOLOGO /LOG_IA32CPUID.
New command-line parameter "/TEMP:" to specify a different temporary folder instead of one specified by %TEMP% environment variable.
Support for "Intel SHA extensions" instructions for SHA-1 on CPUs that support it for hardware acceleration of SHA-1. These instructions are introduced on Intel Goldmont microarchitecture processors, e.g. Pentium J4205, Celeron J3455, Atom C3958, etc. These instructions are currently supported for 64-bit version of The Bat! only.
Added the 'Insert Symbol' button to the editor toolbar
Added support for TLS Server Name Indication (SNI) Extension. It is useful when multiple servers are sharing the same IP address.
Added new path macros: %PROGRAMFILES% and %PROGRAMFILESX86%.
Toolbar has now drop-down history for the "Copy to folder" and "Move to folder" buttons.
Updated HTML editor component version.
The Bat! now tries to call the GetAddrInfoExW function instead of GetAddrInfoExA. Only if GetAddrInfoExW is not available, it falls back to GetAddrInfoExA.
The Bat! is now able to locate GPG4WIN 3.1.1.
Optimized CPU thread usage by creating and freeing threads less frequent because of using more threads with a reusable thread pool.
If CPU supports SHA extensions, The Bat! will use them for SHA-256 hash. You can call The Bat! with /SHA256_BENCHMARK command line parameter to figure out whether you CPU supports the extension and what is real gain from using the extensions.
The Bat! didn't notify plugins about a "MainWindowLoaded" event since version 8.
Fixed the "Select Image" icon in toolbar customization.
Some modifications on PGP internal signature verification.
Some fatal errors that prevented The Bat! from starting and were silent now are displayed to the user.
If external third-party plugins in The Bat! prevent it from starting successfully, The Bat! restarts, removes all the plugins from the list, and notifies the user about it, creating copies of plugin configuration files.
If a Windows API function to resolve host name fails with an Access Violation error or other exception, The Bat! no longer uses that API function.
