URL string concatenated of split line

When the end of URL string continues to the next line, basically the whole string is recognized as a URL string. However, when the carriage return is inserted into the URL string by the end of a line, the whole string can not work well.
The URL string split by a carriage return can work well to configure the JoinSplitURL entry of the [Tera Term] section in the teraterm.ini file.

JoinSplitURL=on

By using the emacs editor, a special character will be displayed at the end of the line when the line continues to next line. If this character is recognized with a part of URL string, the whole string can not work well with the URL format.
So, Tera Term can ignore the special character to configure the JoinSplitURLIgnoreEOLChar entry of the [Tera Term] section in the teraterm.ini file.

JoinSplitURLIgnoreEOLChar=

Also, the emacs editor can change the special character to other character.
When the character is changed, a user configures the JoinSplitURLIgnoreEOLChar entry of the [Tera Term] section in the following:

JoinSplitURLIgnoreEOLChar=|
Default:
JoinSplitURL=off
JoinSplitURLIgnoreEOLChar=\

DeferredLogWriteMode=off
Default:
DeferredLogWriteMode=on

Specify timestamp format at the start of log file's line

UTC is used as timestamp at the start of log file's line

When the log file is written, the timestamp can be added at the start of log file's line. Basically, local time is used.
When local time is used for summer time, the clock will go or back at summer time switching. So, unexpected clock will be recorded.
Fortunately, this problem can be avoided because UTC timestamp does not support summer time.
If UTC timestamp is used instead of local time, change the LogTimestampUTC entry of [Tera Term] section in the following:

LogTimestampUTC=on
Default:
LogTimestampUTC=off
