Snapshot – Fixes to typed history, keyboard shortcuts for web panels and visual polishing

Bugfixing and polishing is still our major focus at the moment. Typed history gets a revamp and its behaviour more closely matches its name, web panels can now be assigned individual shortcuts and we have plenty of small visual improvements.
