### New [SomeMeter:XW] and [SomeMeter:YH] Section Variables

We have added two new meter Section Variables:

https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual-beta/variables/section-variables/#XWYH

[SomeMeter:XW]
Uses the current value of X and the current W-width of the named meter, and adds them together to give you the X-position of the "end" of the meter.

[SomeMeter:YH]
Uses the current value of Y and the current H-height of the named meter, and adds them together to give you the Y-position of the "end" of the meter.

This equates to, and can be used in place of, formulas like:

X=([SomeMeter:X] + [SomeMeter:W])
Y=([SomeMeter:Y] + [SomeMeter:H])

In order to have a meter be "relative" to another meter.
