- Improved Running Indicators to be more efficient and not require a timer
- Added a new "Warnings" tab in Dock Settings that will appear if known and solvable problems exist
- Added "Debug.exe" to assist in debugging Mods (and for our internal use in debugging RD). It also will show the contents of any generated "Debug Info" files for our more paranoid users.
- Moved "LanguageID Finder.exe" to the Tools directory.
- Changed docklet handling of OnConfigure() and other events so that docklets now have a normal right-click menu. "Icon Settings" will configure the docklet
- Fixed problem where docklets (iCal) could change the Current Directory and cause problems
- Changed the "hot" area of the dock to only extended to the edge of your monitor if any of the following are true: AutoHide is enabled, Popup on Mouseover is enabled, or the Edge Offset is greater than zero
- Changed to better clean up "ghost" settings from deleted icons/filters
