All apostrophe types should be accepted by the input parser now.
Word Wrap can be now set by default in Tools - Options - General View.
All Registry access attempts should be now under branch HKEY_CURRENT_USER what should result in less frequent failures because of write access rights errors in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
