In this release, we've introduced several enhancements and fixes to improve user experience and system functionality. A notable addition is the "BlockInterferenceControl=y" option, designed to prevent sandboxed processes from manipulating windows and mouse pointers, although it's recommended to disable this feature in gaming environments due to potential compatibility issues. We've also implemented support for hardlinks and introduced a new mechanism for terminating non-responsive sandboxed processes.

On the changes front, several experimental options have been renamed to more accurately describe their functions, such as "IsBlockCapture=y" to "BlockScreenCapture=y" and "IsProtectScreen" to "CoverBoxedWindows=y", and these have been clearly labeled as experimental in the user interface.

This update also includes various fixes across the board. We've resolved issues with the settings dialog not displaying correct RAM disk letters, and a series of bugs introduced by a new QT version that affected the updater and troubleshooting wizard. Additionally, specific problems caused by enabling "DropAdminRights/FakeAdminRights" have been addressed, and crashes in KeePass due to "BlockScreenCapture=y" have been fixed. Other corrections ensure that Sandboxie remains compatible with older Windows 7 systems.
