About the new permission "SuperUser":
This permission is now requested to make Total Commander work better on rooted devices. It tells the SuperUser app that Total Commander suports root functions. It has no effect if your device is not rooted. Root functions allow Total Commander to write to system folders like /system or /data. You will be warned before anything is written if the partition is write protected.

From version Total Commander - file manager 3.0b14 beta:
2020-01-16 Release v 3.0 beta 14
2020-01-16 Fixed: Root functions: Overwriting files in folder with root functions (e.g. in /system) no longer worked
2020-01-09 Fixed: Internal associations: Couldn't uncheck option "content://url" on Android 10 although access to real directories is still possible
2020-01-06 Added: Scroll newly created directory into view in long directory listing
2020-01-06 Fixed: Couldn't remove link to ///_Primary storage from home folder when it was added manually
2020-01-06 Fixed: Showing APK icons and installing APKs in virtual folders only worked in primary storage, not in secondary like SD cards
2019-12-27 Fixed: Trying to install split apk installed only the main apk when the other parts were all optional, e.g. Google Maps with language apks
2019-12-27 Added: Set timestamp of files copied to internal virtual folder ///_Primary via setLastModified to /proc/self/fd/ (unfortunately it doesn't work with SD cards)
2019-12-25 Fixed: Uninstalling apps no longer worked on Android 9 and newer, requires extra permission "android.permission.REQUEST_DELETE_PACKAGES"
2019-12-22 Fixed: Editor, find text: Edit box to enter text wasn't initially focused

2019-12-20 Release v 3.0 beta 13
2019-12-19 Added: Install split APK files backed up with other programs than Total Commander by selecting all parts and tapping on the main apk
2019-12-19 Fixed: Media player: Remove prefix "content://com.ghisler.files" from paths when opening tracks by clicking on them in Total Commander
2019-12-19 Fixed: Android 10 seems to show only one file picker (GET_CONTENT) per app -> prefer the one returning "content:" URLs
2019-12-19 Fixed: When re-opening the program, only paths on the first found virtual device (e.g. SD-Card, primary) were restored
2019-12-13 Fixed: Pass path to external file system as content: URL to plugins which support it, when the file needs to be moved, so the plugin can delete the file after uploading
2019-12-10 Added: Show APK icon also in virtual folders, using APKParser from github.com/jaredrummler
2019-12-10 Added: Show APK information when tapping on them also in virtual folders (storage access framework)

2019-11-05 Fixed: On Android 6 or newer, do not call recreate() to switch between light and dark mode - it crashes on Cyanogenmod. Instead call finish() and then startActivity()
2019-10-31 Fixed: Unregister USB connect/disconnect notification receiver in onDestroy
