Version 21.6.0-rc07

New and Noteworthy in Version 21.6 Release Candidate 7

Escape non standard blanks

Faktor-IPS version 21.6.0 RC7 adds an option to escape special blanks like the non-breaking space ( ) or the em-space ( ) in the XML files, to allow visual identification when manually comparing the files. This may be of special interest when switching to Java 11, as some older VMs did not replace those escape sequences when reading them and therefore wrote them again while most current VMs replace them upon loading with their Unicode character representation which is then written as-is in the XML (which works perfectly fine, but is hard for human eyes to identify).
