-**Bug Fixes** +=====Version 4.0.7 (SEP-2018)===== 
-  * Added Quit command ​to frmMain.Close eventThe "​Close"​ command closes and disposes ​of the window ​that calls it. In Windows this is enoughas with the last closed window ​the app exitsIn MacOS however „Close“ disposes the window but keeps the menu bar alive, ​and therefore the app keeps running. The „Quit"​ command terminates the application completelyregardless of platform. by Sebastian Spiegl +  ​Added Search Field for Tasks 
-  * Added PathType to FolderItem calls with strings as path. When a path is handed over to a new FolderItem as stringa path type has to be used. PathTypeNative ​is the OS independent path type.

 +  * New Task Model: Get rid of the old model with Threadpool ManagerInstead ​of having only one TaskType ​that is configured to be CuelistScript or Timeline, we now have an own class for every Task Type that shares ​the same class interface This makes it easier to add new programming features in the future. 
 +  * Cut Copy Paste from Cuelist Cues to Timeline Cues and vice versa 
 +  * New Timeline designTimeline works again 
 +  * TDevice: If receiving data from channel, and there is no pending ACK and no Event routinethen the data is deleted 
 +  * New Device Option: Fire On Unchanged VariableDefault is false which means a variable change ​event occurs only if the variable value is set AND the value is different from the old oneIf this is checked (true) then the event is fired every time a variable is updatedeven if the new value is the same then the old value
