Prompt [RECOVERY][TOUCH]TWRP 2.7.0.0 Touch Recovery [UPDATE TO #define's thread]

Since, @#define doesn't has the device anymore and I was working on updates of TWRP Recovery, so after some talks with him, I am making a new thread where I will maintain TWRP Releases.

OFFICIAL TWRP HTC EXPLORER PAGE

Latest Release - v 2.7.0.0 by @thewisenerd

What's new in 2.7.0.0:
  • Faster graphics rendering by disabling alpha blending on fully opaque objects thanks to Tassadar
  • Allow sideloading from /tmp on encrypted devices
  • Check for a crypto footer before asking for a password to prevent user confusion
  • Additional checks for validity to auto generated backup names
  • Text wrap in the console output
  • Proper caps lock support in the keyboard
  • Mouse support via USB OTG for devices with a broken digitizer
  • Improve scanning of storage locations for OpenRecoveryScript
  • Haptic feedback for buttons, keyboard, and vibration at the end of longer running actions
  • Fixed ext4 wiping when no selinux contexts are defined for that partition (e.g. sd-ext)
  • Update SuperSU to 1.93 and improve installation process
  • Added selinux contexts restoration to fix permissions
  • Load RTC offset on Qualcomm devices to fix the date/time in recovery
  • USB Mass Storage fixes Add SELinux support checking
  • Add Disk Usage class to better handle excluded folders (e.g. Google Music cache)
  • Add 4.4 AOSP decrypt support
  • Add some toolbox utilities to TWRP (namely to support SELinux functions not supported in busybox)
  • Various SELinux fixes and bug fixes
  • Removed Superuser prebuilt binary and Superuser.apk (By me not in Official TWRP) to trim the recovery size.(Thanks for the idea @galaxyfreak )

Yes I know. Restarting device/recovery fixes it!
