BetterTouchTool 2.26
- Some improvements and fixes for the new Show Clipboard / Pasteboard History predefined action
- Fixed a bug with the "Restore Saved Mouse Position" action
- Added a great new predefined action: "Show Clipboard/Pasteboard History". Basically it keeps a history of your clipboard and allows you to access it at any time. If you haven't used another clipboard management tool yet I highly recommend to try this, it has really improved my efficiency by a lot. It's probably not as powerful as other specialized clipboard management tools out there, but it has some features I was missing with other tools.
- It's disabled by default, you need to assign the "Show Clipboard / Pasteboard History" action to some trigger (e.g., gesture or keyboard shortcut)
- You can edit items (text and images) before pasting
- You can paste as file (e.g., in Finder)
- You can save clippings as files
- You can paste multiple at the same time by selecting them while holding Cmd
- Easy keyboard navigation (select clipping with arrow keys, press enter to paste)
- Fixed various bugs
- Improved Dropbox sync

BetterTouchTool 2.25
- Improved the "Show Clipboard/Pasteboard History" action. I think it's now pretty cool. Feature requests very welcome. Unfortunately I had to change the data format of the clipboard history, thus the previous history won't be available after installing this update.
- Fixed a crash on macOS 10.11

BetterTouchTool 2.10
Data Format Change:
- This is internally a very big update. It completely changes the BetterTouchTool data model in order to support syncing to multiple machines (e.g. via Dropbox). The sync functionality is not yet enabled in this version, but will be very soon if everything goes well.
- This version migrates your previous BetterTouchTool data file to the new format, you shouldn't notice this migration.
- In case anything goes wrong during the data migration: don't worry. BTT automatically creates backups. Please contact me in case anything goes wrong (best via Github).

New Preset System:
- Completely new Preset system. Presets are now exported and imported as JSON (thus they can e.g. be edited in a text editor if necessary)
- You can now have multiple presets enabled at the same time, one of them has to be selected as master preset
- Completely changed the "Switch to Preset" predefined action in order to support the new preset system

New JSON based Copy & Paste:
- Copy & Paste is now also JSON based
- You can copy single gestures by pressing cmd+c
- You can copy all gestures of an app by selecting the app and pressing cmd+c
- You can copy a app including all of it's gestures and settings by selecting the app and pressing cmd+shift+c

New Predefined Actions:
- Added predefined action "Volume Up (Small Step)" and "Volume Down (Small Step)"
- Added predefined action "Toggle Dark Mode"

- Added predefined action "Toggle Night Shift (experimental, requires macOS 10.12.4)"
- Added predefined action "Add New Space To Mission Control"

Faster Window Snapping:
- In general Window Snapping should be much faster, especially on retina screens
- Window snapping has now a "High Performance Mode" which can be activated in the advanced preferences. It significantly increases the performance of the window snapping animation, but also significantly increases the memory usage of BTT.

Touch Bar:
- The Touch Bar brightness slider uses a different API and shouldn't be dimmed back by the system anymore.
- The Apple Script widget now allows to run Apple Scripts which only update the widget by pressing it. To achieve this, assign the "Run Apple Script (enter directly as text)" predefined action. (You can leave the script field in the widget settings empty if you don't need timer based updates).
- Fixed some small layout problems

Mouse Gestures / Drawings:
- You can now set a minimum movement that is required before starting to recognize right-click drawings.
- Drawing gestures should now only be recognized while being drawn with approximately the rotation they were recorded with (can be changed in the advanced settings).
