Improved Attribute Space Switcher buttons right-click window for adding/customizing xform targets.
Added Transparency Mode for Select Sets.
Improved update performance of Time Bookmarks.
Promoted Apply Euler Filter to Apply Smart Euler Filter. Now you can apply euler filter only to selected keys.
Added Print Command Output option, that will print commands on the Script Editor to help building macros (option available on the search tool).
Added progress bar to balloon dialogs that closes automatically.
Moved a few .anb data from animBot_data to animBot_tmp_data.
