New features:
- New 'Calculate checksum' feature added to the 'File' menu (mapped onto Shift+Alt+K by default) which calculates the checksum of selected files and writes them to a file in a standard format. The following checksum algorithms are provided: Alder32, CRC32, MD2, MD4, MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, SHA-384 and SHA-512.
- New 'Verify data integrity' transfer option that ensures that the files are strictly identical on the source and destination after being transferred. This option slows down transfers significantly but can prevent data loss on unreliable mediums.
