What's new in this version:

- Fix Welcome Window backup and migration logs to correctly show bright text in dark mode
- Add additional nil checking into internal search
- Change bundle id to "com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred" for now and future: future proofs major versions which will now share macOS App Support, cache folders etc., removes name dependency when using AppleScript to call Alfred, now you can use tell application id "com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred" to search, Note: Also added a "Show Alfred" workflow object which should be used where possible instead of AppleScript call backs
- Add "Welcome" window when first launching Alfred: pre-activation of Powerpack, settings backup and migration of older preferences, configure macOS permissions
- Hardened runtime support for macOS
- Improved, higher performance application caching for Alfred's file search
- Prevent multiple copies of Alfred from running if, for example, a workflow accidentally attempts to re-launch Alfred as a new process
- Hotkey display will now track the current keyboard layout (i.e. ⌘L in British layout will now correctly show ⌘N when switching the keyboard to Dvorak)
- Improve secondary-view input field / selection list text copy behaviour to match Alfred's main search field: e.g. allows for copy partial selected search term, or partial selected summary text from clipboard history viewer without overriding with "copy entire item" action
- Show correct fallback text when query is dynamically updated, for example, pressing after a calculation to equate the answer
- Make 'alfred preferences' correctly match result to show Alfred's preferences in Alfred's default results
- Standardise big hat drawing between Workflows and Remote preferences when no workflow or page is selected
- Make QuickLook previews change dynamically when changing result item in Alfred's Default Results and File System Navigation
- Migrate and modernise many icons into PaintCode
- Show "this does nothing" notification when double clicking an alfredpreferences file
- Fix locale and macOS language discovery to correctly format dates: fix applies to all places where dates can be used, e.g. Snippets, Workflow placeholders, Contacts
- Update mechanism for storing and reading preferences sync folder to prefs.json in Alfred's Application Support folder: JSON contains 'current' value, written at startup to help external scripts find Alfred's preferences if synced; Note, for the time being, the syncfolder is still written to the preferences plist for workflow libraries which may rely on this
- Migrate remaining http links to https (to force encryption where unspecified): e.g. Contact URLs, Workflow website, Remote page examples, 1Password, user proxy settings; also certain labels throughout the preferences now correctly show https
