* Re-added the ability to cut/copy everything using cut/copy shortcuts when no text is selected.
* Fixed a bug where news posts and puzzle descriptions were not selectable.

Hotfix 12/18

* Added Lua function dialog.SelectBands() to prompt the player to select bands, then returns a list of band indices
* Added Lua function dialog.SelectSegments() to prompt the player to select segments, then returns a list of segment indices
* Added Lua function structure.GetCuts() which returns a list of segment indices which have open cutpoints
* Added Lua function structure.GetHBonds() which returns a table of visible hydrogen bonds (Note that that the results of this function are dependent on the current view options). Each entry contains these fields:
- res1: segment index 1
- res2: segment index 2
- atom1: atom index 1
- atom2: atom index 2
- bond_type: 0 for hydrogen, 1 for disulfide
- width: length of bond, generally ranging from 0.25 (bad) to 0.75 (good)

Bug Fixes:
* Certain actions (for example, bands) should no longer re-score the pose when they don't need to.
* Using 'R' to select the reaction design tool should no longer remove bands.
* Removed lua script hooks for the non-functional Lua Tweak commands.
* Foldit's log file no longer shows chat history
* Fixed a bug allowing players on Discord to send arbitrary links
* Fixed a bug causing the game to freeze/hang when using Lua recipes related to getting/loading solutions
* Fixed a bug where moving an existing band when "Default band setting to last used" is checked would change the strength of the existing band
* Added chat message rate limiting for spam prevention

Known Issues

- Chat message rate limiting may trigger erroneously. Restarting your client may (randomly) fix this behavior. Another hotfix is forthcoming.

Thanks for the update

This update opens some new doors to us.
I have only explored a few of these doors
so far. Thank you for coding & sharing it.

I mirror Jeff's sentiments!

[err, jeff101, that is lol]
But also a HUGE huge thankyou to any and all involved in preserving the GUI's "User Select" function!!!! I was genuinely worried that it'd be some new implementation that wasn't able to work anything like how GUI did. (Even with the bug Loci documented, since it still works as intended, I'm a happy camper!)

So take THAT, 2020! Some miracles CAN still happen... ^_^

Happy Holidays
