This build focuses on greatly improving the tracking of process starts and display of meaningful process trees. This is accomplished by monitoring the appropriate ETW events and using this information to list short lived processes that otherwise would fall between the refresh intervals of the regular enumeration method.
A new setting "Retain parent Processes" makes task explorer keep terminated processes listed as long as there are still child or (grand,...)grandchild processes running. A new toolbar button allows to quickly switch between a list view and a tree view while retaining the list sort order.
The new build also features other UI improvements most notably a Dark Mode for those who likes it.


[1.1.0] - 2020-23-01


added Dark Theme Support
added ETW monitoring of the processProvider
-- allows to capture all process cration events henc elisting of very short lived processes
-- using ETW data to set image path and command line when the process closed before we could inspect it
added option to keep processes listed indefinetly as long as thay have still running children.
added functionality to find some types of hidden processes, also usefull to find some already terminated processes
added tool bar button to switch between the tree view and a list view more convinient as the last choose list sort column is remembered


the handle tab is now present twice once as it was and once providing only an open file list


handle types are now sorted properly i.e. "[All]" is first
