A better way to browse drawers

Workbench Explorer (WEx) is a modern file browser loaded with the features
you are used to, but also with several new functions/features no other file
browser has.

I hate writing manuals, but do read the included the AmigaGuide and Office
compatible doc file.

In Preferences->Installed tab there is a list of items that will add extra
functionality if they are installed.

Turn on Preview pane to:
     * View images
	 * Read text files
	 * View GIF anims
	 * Play MP3s

The purpose of Commodity Mode is to have WEx started at boot up
(WBStartup) and will be running in the background.  Then using the
hotkey (default: LAmiga + E) it will open.  Closing the window will ony
hide the interface.

###### [2.3 build 9400] - 2019-5-13				5 Year Anniversary
### Added
- Downloads from Aminet and OS4Depot now have the path set in the filenote.
- Version column.  On by default, disable in Preferences->Columns.
- Version is shown in search results if applicable.
- Preferences->Window->Toolbar image size.
For normal (24x24) or more compact (16x16) toolbar.
- Preferences->Operation->Use internal Information system.
Not using this will use the default program, usually RAWBInfo, to display
information about the selected item.  Not using WEx's internal Information will
limit some extra useful data.  Use Menu->Tools->Tool type editor
to edit icon tooltypes.
- The version or picture details, if applicable, is shown in the paste exists
box for each file.  The "Get version" button still shows the complete version

### Fixed
- Blank menu images now done internally.
- Cleaned up context menu alignments.
- Sort arrow was put on wrong listbrowser column when columns were re-arranged.
- Content view style was not showing the correct data.
- Changing drawers order was not refreshing.
- Improved sorting routines.
- Small bug in SAK_GetVersion().
- Rare bug when close Preferences dealing with using own screen or not.
- Bug that would crash WEx if the Preview pane is open and then open a new tab
at Computer.

### Changed
- The paste exists requesters are much smaller allowing for future expansion.
- The StatusBar now uses my InfoData.class.


To add context menus support to Workbench, edit the file below.
Either just paste these lines to the end of the file, or insert them
individually at the top of their respective category.
Edit the paths accordingly.  APPDIR: does not work for the icon image.
