---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Actual Window Manager 8.14 beta 2 (16.02.2019)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
[!] Microsoft Office 2013+: Application windows got frozen for a long time
    (up to several minutes) after locking the user session and then unlocking
    it back.

[+] Window Actions: The ability is added to turn off automatic semi-transparency
    on deactivation or mouse hovering for a certain window (see the "Options -
    Transparency" submenu in window's context menu).

[+] Virtual Desktops: The ability is added to keep the Virtual Desktop
    Switcher's position while toggling it on/off via hotkey: turn off the newly
    added "Show the switcher near mouse pointer" option in the "Virtual
    Desktops" panel to make the switcher stop following the mouse and stay
    where you left it last time.

[*] Actual Taskbar: Now you can cancel dragging a button in taskbar or
    notification area by pressing Esc.

[*] Actual Taskbar, Windows 10 Insider: Now taskbars look correct in the Light
    visual theme.

[*] Tabbed Explorer: Container windows now should correctly scale their content
    when dragging them between monitors with different DPI resolutions.

[*] Configuration: Now configuration windows and dialogs correctly scale their
    content (except the icons) to a current DPI resolution, including on-the-fly
    scaling when dragging them between monitors with different DPI resolutions.

[-] Virtual Desktops: Microsoft Excel 2016/2019 lost its ribbon title bar after
    hiding/showing it by switching to another virtual desktop and back.

[-] Actual Taskbar, Window Actions: Sometimes moving a maximized window between
    monitors using the Move to Monitor action made the window's task button
    disappear from all taskbars forever (until you close the window and open it
    again).

[-] Actual Taskbar, Windows 10 Insider: UWP apps' icons did not update correctly
    in task buttons and Jump Lists when switching between Light and Dark visual
    themes or changing the system accent color.

[-] Window Actions: Google Chrome window did not respect the Restrict Placement
    and Fix Minimal/Maximal Size actions when it was full screen or in kiosk
    mode.

[-] Mirroring: Numerous fixes for active mirrors:

    - resizing the source window through its mirror worked unstable

    - in some cases, clicking the left mouse button in a mirror made the source
      window "think" the button is still pressed although it was actually
      released

    - in some cases, wrong window got activated after moving the mouse out of
      a UWP app's mirror

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Actual Window Manager 8.14 beta 1 (30.12.2018)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
[+] Mirroring: The long-awaited active mirroring is finally implemented. Active
    mirrors make the mirrored content available for mouse clicks, pen drawings,
    and touch gestures as if you would interact with the mirror's source itself.

    Note: Pen/touch support now reliably works in Windows 10 only.

[-] Mirroring, Windows 10: In some cases, hardware accelerated mirrors froze
    on a first frame and did not update anymore.

[-] Actual Taskbar, Windows 7: Horizontal taskbar painted incorrectly in the
    Classic visual theme.

[-] Title Buttons: Main window of Microsoft Visual Studio 2010+ got hung after
    closing it via the "File - Exit" menu command or the Alt-F4 hotkey if the
    Aero visual theme was active and any of extra buttons was added to that
    window's title bar.
