What's New:

  • Instead of old-style, bad tab-controls, now ATTabs used. They are more nice looking (e.g. mouse-over effect for tabs, auto-hiding of "x" btn on too small tabs size, more correct skin drawing on tabs background). And have more features (e.g. tab "+", button "down" at right side).
  • New groups system. Read new help topic "Groups of tabs". Now maximum 6 groups exist.
  • drag-drop of tabs between groups.
  • new dialog "Save tabs?"
