Release v0.62.1

This is a patch release to fix issues in v0.62.0 to fix some bugs we deemed important for stability based on incoming rates.

  • #20297 – Fixed an issue causing a bug report to not be generated for some users, due to trying to include logs from a folder that might not exist yet.
  • #20367 – Fixed an issue that made Quick Accent cause Keyboard Manager to not work correctly.
  • #20430, #20450 and #20532 – Added more resilient exit code for background C# processes which were causing crashes being reported when upgrading PowerToys or the .NET runtimes.
