Overview of Today (Today Info)
Overview of Today is informational popup window activated either by:

hovering mouse over the clock icon in Tray
left clicking on the clock icon in Tray
It provides summary listing of alarms for today and all of defined countdonws or countups. The list of alarms is sorted from top to bottom by time, starting from the oldest past events progressing down to newest upcoming events.
Events before current time are located above calendar and events after current time are below calendar. The list uses various colors for quick indication whether the item is past or upcoming.
The color coding in the list is as follows:
 Countup - red text on light red background.
Countup is past alarm configured to instantly display, how much time passed since the event.
 Past Alarm (today) - red text on white background.
 Today - items related to the current time are displayed on yellow background.
 Current Time in different Time Zone
 Current Local Time
Note: Current time in different time zone and local time are sorted too.
 Upcoming Alarm (today) - black text on light green background.
 Countdown - black text on light blue background.
Countdown is future alarm configured to instantly display, how much time is left until the event.
Note: Countups and Countdowns are displayed in Today Info always - no matter, if related to current day or not.
 Blue Highlight - in calendar, shows day containing any alarms.
 Yellow Highlight - in calendar, shows day containing only daily alarms. You can turn off highlighting of daily alarms in calendar through settings (Time Tab). The reason for that is because when you set up for example daily alarm to wake up at 7:30 every day, highlighting this in calendar would mean to tag all days in all months - so it would inefficiently clutter the calendar view providing no useful information.

Alarms are also being permanently deleted from the clock list of alarms.
