I have 9.22a final installed for now.

Just open "history.txt" file in an editor and search for lines with "Added:" and "wincmd.ini".

Another comfortable way I use: TC Changes Viewer
Just "Search - Find" with :

Code: Select all

Find what: "wincmd.ini"
 [x] Additions
 [x ]Match whole word only

Press "Find All" button
