Changes in recent version
Sandboxie now applies by default "Close...=!,..." directives to non-excluded images if they are located in a sandbox
-- added 'AlwaysCloseForBoxed=n' to disable this behaviour as it may not be always desired, and it doesn't provide extra security
added process image information to Sandman UI
localized template categories in the Plus UI
added "DisableResourceMonitor=y" to disable resource access monitor for selected boxes
added option to show trace entries only for the selected sandbox
added "UseVolumeSerialNumbers=y" that allows drive letters to be suffixed with the volume SN in the drive sandbox location
-- it helps to avoid files mixed together on multiple pendrives using the same letter
-- note: this option is not compatible with the recovery function of the Classic UI, only SandMan UI is fully compatible
portable cleanup message now has y/n/c options
consolidated Proc_CreateProcessInternalW and Proc_CreateProcessInternalW_RS5 to remove duplicate code
the ElevateCreateProcess fix, as sometimes applied by the Program Compatibility Assistant, will no longer be emulated by default
