10.0.0.1 Sep 04, 2017
*Added: The Version property includes the SpecialBuild number of the assembly so it provides information like Major.Minor.Build.Revison.SpecialBuild.Type...
*Fixed: Prevents a memory leak when loading icons, pictures, from BASE64 encoded strings (Images method, HTMLPicture picture).
*Fixed: A GPF occurs if the application is started from design mode ( demo / evaluation / trial version only )
*Fixed: Prevents "Do you want to save ..." / "Save changes...' input box, when the user opens the form in design mode, and close it.

9.1.0.4 Sep 07, 2016
*Added: The Version property for /NET or /WPF version returns more information about the component/assembly/file.
*Fixed: An ICO file shows as 18x18 instead of 16x16 pixels if it is loaded using the HTMLPicture method.
*Fixed: Prevents showing the control's view in design mode, while running on FORTH system ( /COM version )

9.1.0.3 Apr 27, 2016
*Added: , ,  HTML tags ends the solid, up or dotted line
*Added: Prevents showing the ,.;!?'")}] characters at the beginning of a new line, when html text is word-wrapping.

9.1.0.2 Feb 15, 2016
*NEW:   Unlimited options to show any HTML text, images, colors, EBNs, patterns, frames anywhere on the panel's background. Ability to draw additional EBN/Color/Text/Patterns/Images on the panel, using the EBN String Format (create and run at runtime EBN objects)
*Added: Panel.BackgroundExt property indicates additional colors, text, patterns, images that can be displayed on the panel's background using the EBN string format. For instance, Panel.BackgroundExt = "bottom[4,back=RGB(0,0,0)],top[4,back=RGB(0,0,0)]" draws a 4-pixels wide line aligned to the top and bottom sides of the panel. The Panel.BackgroundExt = "bottom[10%+12,back=RGB(255,0,0),text=`alertAlert!`,align=0x11]" displays the alert picture and the Alert! caption as bold, on the RED background, on the bottom portion of the panel (10%+12 pixels-wide from the object's client area). 
*Added: Panel.BackgroundExtValue(Index,Property) property gets or sets a value that indicates the value of giving property for the object with indicated index. This property has effect only if the BackgroundExt property is set. The BackgroundExtValue property allows you to change programmatically, the properties of the parts that composes the EBN object. For instance, BackgroundExtValue(0,exFrameColorExt) = RGB(255,0,0) draws a red frame around the root part of the object. For instance, you can use this property to change properties ( like colors ) of the EBN without having to assign a new EBN string format 
*Tip:   The EBN is a set of UI elements that are built as a tree where each element is anchored to its parent element. The BackgroundExtValue property can change properties like: exBackColorExt (element's background color, including other EBN objects), exClientExt (position/size of the element), exAnchorExt (element's alignment relative to its parent), exTextExt (associates a HTML text on the element), exTextExtWordWrap (word wrapping of the elements text), exTextExtAlignment (alignment of the element's text), exPatternExt (pattern to be shown on the element), exPatternColorExt ( color of the pattern on the element ), exFrameColorExt (color to show the border-frame on the element), exFrameThickExt (shows a thick-frame around the element), exUserDataExt (associates an extra-data with the element)
*Tip:   The eXButtons's builder WYSWYG tool provides the To String field, that indicates the EBN string format that can be used by BackgroundExt/BackgroundExtValue properties.
