~ Faster string search routines (now almost twice as fast). This impacts hash synchronization, checking files from the list of existing hashes. I have tested the new routines against a range of strange foreign languages and Unicode characters with 100% success. * Fixed sync issue when using absolute paths inside root hashes. This was leading to duplicate hash entries. * Fixed issue with hash comments not respecting the always_store_unc pref (they were using UNC-style paths even when this was disabled - it caused no issue, but looked incongruous). * Fixed a bug in applying unified extension to multiple legacy hash files. This almost never happens, but if you happen to have .md5/.sha1/.blake2 hash files for a file and applied a unified extension, hashes for second and subsequent algorithms were being re-calculated.
