Notecase Pro v4.7.1 desktop edition released

Notecase Pro v4.7.1 desktop edition has just been released.
Downloads are now available at http://www.notecasepro.com/download.php

Notable changes in this release:
- major: Windows build is going back to GTK provided by gvsbuild
- updated the launcher script for macOS app bundle (fixes the issue with Japanese, Chinese input), updated macOS build to latest GTK version
- disabled the code for collection of statistical telemetry data (data was not as useful as much as I hoped)
- add: document tabs context menu got a new "Copy Document Path" action to put document path to clipboard
- add: Nc_Doc_Load now got optional password parameter to open encrypted documents without prompting for password on screen
- fix: on ncdb/ncde document load, check database integrity, try to rebuild indexes if any issue found
- fix: case where copy/paste of rich text formatted content did not preserve all formatting properties
- fix: some macOS issues, reported by a user, resolved by GTK library rebuild
- fix: opening document in 2nd app instance with "--new-instance" parameter caused the document to be opened in the 1st instance as well
- fix: make "#" column in Script Manager window list auto-sized
- fix: script "059_GlobaSearch.lua" reported an error when searching for something that does not exist in the document

A two builds added: Fedora 38, Ubuntu 23.04.
Following builds deprecated in the last cycle are now removed: Fedora 33-35,  Debian 10,  Mageia 6 32-bit build.

Unless someone needs this, in next cycle I plan to discontinue the following builds (distros becoming EOL soon):
- Ubuntu 22.10
- Ubuntu 18.04 GTK2 build
- Ubuntu 16.04 GTK2 build

FreeBSD build still needs to be built, should hopefully be online in a day or two.
