FILE MANAGER Drag and drop extraction results in hiding the main form, consistently to behavior from Extraction and Archiving screens
EXTRACTION and ARCHIVING Extraction: "Smart new folder" option improves and replaces "Remove redundant directory" option if the new folder contains a single object (file or folder), content is copied outside and the extra folder is removed (removes extra folder layer and preserves original names of archived folders), if copying the content outside the new folder fails, the content is kept in the new folder smart extraction is meant to guarantee that a single item is extracted, to avoid flooding target directory of multiple unexpected items, and that no unneeded level of directory nesting is added Improved GUI feedback during preliminary steps of archives conversion and "TAR before" procedures Improved GUI feedback running option to delete original sources Improved information shown about running archiving / extraction tasks
