- fix: regression with option "nonword_chars" (thanks @hamasaki)
1.105.5 (2020/06)
+ add: option "lexer_folding_max_lines" - when document has too many lines, parser doesn't find fold-blocks
+ add: reworked parser code which handles indentation-based folding (e.g. in Python); reworked lexer Python for this; all lexers in add-ons which use indentation-based folding will be reworked soon
+ add: for Python lexer, fold-blocks endings now exclude commented lines
+ add: on editing in Python, parser better updates fold-blocks started above caret (thanks @OlehL)

- fix: regressions in hotkey system (thanks @tmsg)
1.105.0 (2020/06)
+ add: rewritten system of keymapping, how keymappings are assigned to documents. Previous system was bad. It was slow (each tab switching was loading lexer-specific hotkeys from file). It had bugs (lexer-specific hotkeys did not load sometimes, see GitHub issues 2620 2648). (thanks @OlehL)
+ add: internal caching of calculated hyperlinks; maybe (not visible on average PC) it gives smoother scrolling by Up/Down arrows
+ add: zip package installer shows additional confirmation to install hotkeys, if plugin provides them (e.g. CudaExt provides ~50 hotkeys, not OK for some users)

- fix: regression in commands "fold/unfold/toggle block at current line" if lexer don't show "staples" (thanks @MiroslavMatas)
- fix: commands "find current word/selection next/previous" did not respect options "find_indent_*" (thanks @kvichans)
1.103.0 (2020/06)
+ add: better logic of "line states": now "added" lines don't change state to "modified" during editing (thanks @tmsg)
+ add: allow to disable storing some elements to history/session, via new option "ui_history_disabled" (thanks @tmsg)
+ add: allow to specify underscore "_" as non-word char, by placing at as _first_ in "nonword_chars" option (thanks @tmsg)

- fix: macros with repeated commands to move caret (e.g. "caret line down" 100 times) did only 1 move (thanks @tmsg)
- fix: 3 years old issue. If complex commands are invoked via fastly pressed hotkeys, some commands were lost. E.g. if hotkey for "toggle line comment" was pressed fastly 20 times, it could run ~17 times. (thanks @kvichans for seeing it)
- fix: Windows: "cannot create file" error if program runs from "Program Files" folder. You should not put CudaText to "Program Files".
- fix: commands "close tab", "close all tabs", "close other tabs" didn't work correctly when floating group is active
- fix: minor issues in HTML auto-completion
1.102.0 (2020/06)

+ add: when "unprinted symbols" are visible, render curved-arrow for wrapped parts of long lines (thanks @tmsg)
+ add: paired file tabs (2 files in a single tab) now correctly save/restore to/from sessions
+ add: for stability, when user removes lexer in Lexer Library dialog, app doesn't deallocate lexer object but only "marks" it (prevents access to deallocated memory objects)
+ add: Wiki topic:
* change: changed format and file extensions of persistent undo/redo (used with "undo_persistent":true)
- fix: bug in regex engine with regex like [\.-] and [.\-] (thanks @SlMaker)
