Themes and dialog windows
Made several visual changes in dialog windows and also several theme improvements.

High DPI
Improved main window scaling and scaling in dialog windows. It's most notable when moving main window between different monitors.

Recent file lists, lists in addons...
Made check boxes in recent file lists, highlighters and language lists in addons theme aware.

They should look better now when using themes.

Also fixed some scaling issues on high DPI screens.

Current line border color
Added the option to change the current line border color in customize themes dialog window.

Space between lines
This option should work better now on really high DPI monitors.

Text Clips
Added a hint to preview the code in a text clip.

Also added new context menu items.

Updates (Win 8.1 and newer)
When a new version is available a Windows notification is displayed. It's added as an option but turned on by default.

The message displayed after an update has been installed should now appear as a Windows notification, instead of a dialog box.

Associate file extension to highlighter
Added a warning message if a user tries to add a .txt, .nfo or .diz extension to a highlighter, as they are reserved for text and ASCII files.

Fixed
* Several "highlight all instances of current word" issues.
* Setting option for the TAB-key to insert tab characters, instead of spaces, should also set option to preserve tabs (and disable the checkbox).
* Current highlighter sometimes displayed with wrong case.
* Style issue in script toolbar.
* Abbreviations not working with Cpp files.
* Brace highlighting using alternative font.


It's a rather big update and many new features to test, so I'll release a beta version when I've received most of the language translations from the translators...

Thanks for the news, but I have never seen ay changes into the language file for a long time.
I'll wait for any news about the new strings to add.
