v15.10.0003 - 2015-05-06 19:26
    * Visual Filters: Now pattern # is auto-wildcarded internally to *#*, i.e. a
      partial match will do. So # will now match all items with at least one
      digit in the name.
      This is in analogy to Find Files with "Enable extended pattern matching".
    % Unavailable Network Locations: Attempt at a faster handling #2.
    > Floating Preview: The extended context menu can be opened with one hand:
      Right Ctrl Key + Context Menu Key. The keys are side by side. Pops at the
      mouse pointer.

  +++ Toolbar: Droppable User Buttons + Paper Folders = Drop Stacks!
       1. Create a new Paper Folder, just for fun call it "DropStack".
       2. Add a new User Button to the Toolbar, and set its Name field to
          "paper:DropStack" (w/o quotes). Leave all other fields empty (or set
          the Icon if you feel like it).
       3. Done! Now you can drag-drop items to that button and they will be
          added to DropStack. At any time click the button to go to DropStack.
      FYI, there were only about ten lines missing to make this work, tz tz
      tz... a little effort for a large functionality step. whatever, now 24x24
      pixel drop stacks are here! And note that you can have as many such Drop
      Stacks as you want (so long as it is less than 65, since only 64 user
      buttons are allowed).
    * View | Paper Folders | Remove Selected Items + Empty Paper Folder: Now you
      are prompted before the items are removed. After all, nothing can undo
      this, not even "Exit without Saving".
    + Configuration | Tree and List | List: Added option "Auto-select first
      item". Tick it to auto-select the first list item when entering a new
      folder.
      Raises tweak ListAutoSelectFirst to GUI.
    * ListAutoSelectFirst does not overrule "Configuration | Tree and List |
      List | Select last used subfolder" anymore.
    + Menu Scripting: Added toggle "Syntax Checking". Tick it show a warning on
      dubious syntax. Recommended for debugging scripts.
      Raises tweak ScriptStrictSyntax to GUI.
    + Syntax Checking: Now you can suppress further validation for the current
      script by holding Ctrl while pressing "Continue" in the "Dubious Syntax"
      dialog.
      Yes, the button tooltip would need a little adjustment, but I think we can
      live with the current text. Think of all the translators...
    % Unavailable Network Locations: Attempt at a faster handling.

v15.10.0001 - 2015-05-05 15:25
    + Address Bar: The right-click menu of the icon now offers the additional
      command "Open With...".
      Note that the Open With menu has to be a reduced one in this context: No
      scripts, no items with variables.
    + File | Open with... (Ctrl+Alt+Enter): Experimentally this command now
      works on the focused list item if no items are selected. Also the "Open
      with" toolbar button is now enabled in that situation.
    ! Catalog: Did not process middle clicks. Did not process any click when
      empty (since recently). Both fixed.
    ! ScriptStrictSyntax: Still a little too aggressive. Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v15.00.0523 - 2015-05-02 14:58
    + Configuration | Thumbnails: Added "Show thumbnails for RAW files". Tick it
      to do what it says. of course, the required RAW codecs (32-bit) have to be
      installed in the system.
    * Configuration | Thumbnails | Show thumbnails for non-images: This does not
      include RAW files anymore.     
    * Scripting: Now include, function, and namespace statements can be indented.
      - Makes scripts look better.
      - Included stuff will now inherit the indent of the include statement. Can
        make a difference in multiscripts.
      Example for include:
        "1st"
         echo "1st!";
        "2nd"
         include tinc.inc
         echo t(7);
        "3rd"
         echo "3rd!";
      Example for function:
        "1st"
         echo "1st!";
        "2nd"
         function half($a) {return $a/2}
         echo half(7);
        "3rd"
         echo "3rd!";
    * User-Defined Functions: Now you can use them in a one-liner like this:
        function half($x) { return $x / 2; }; echo half(3) + half(11);
      But just one, and only at the beginning of the line. Not extremely useful.
    * Configuration | Tree and List | List | Show folder size on Properties tab:
      Is not triggered on startup anymore. Folder sizes are not shown in List
      anymore.
    ! ScriptStrictSyntax: Didn't like numerics without quote. Fixed.
    ! SC replacelist: Did not work with separators longer than one character.
      Fixed.

Code: Select all
v15.00.0522 - 2015-05-01 20:07
    * Address Bar: The default match method for the dropdown match list is
      "match anywhere" (can be tweaked to "match at beginning" via
      AutoCompleteMatchFromBeginning=1). Now in the dropped list
      matches-at-beginning are shown *before* matches-anywhere. Before, they
      were all shown mixed, sorted chronologically (last used first).
    + Scripting: Experimentally added a tweak to employ a stricter syntax
      validation.
        ScriptStrictSyntax=1
      If dubious syntax is met during execution you get a warning "Dubious
      syntax".
      The setting is supported by SC tweak. This is the way to toggle it:
        tweak("ScriptStrictSyntax", "");
    ! Scripting: Message "Call to undefined function" was too aggressive. Tamed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v15.00.0520 - 2015-04-30 20:28
    + Visual Filters: Now the pattern *. can be used to match all files without
      extension.
      Even better, all patterns with a dot at the end now match only files (not
      folders) without extension:
       
        Pattern   Matches             Notes
        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
          *.      indiana, oregon
          ?.      a, b, 4
          #.      2, 3
          a#.     a2, a3
          a*.     a, alabama, alaska
          x.      x                   (exact match)
     
    + Custom File Icons: Now also supports the above extended pattern matching
      for files without extension.
      E.g., this will match all files without extension that start with "a":
          a*.>Bookmark_Red.ico
    + Portable File Associations: Now also supports the above extended pattern
      matching for files without extension.
      Example:
          a*.>::echo "No extension, starts with a."
    + Find Files and Quick Search: Now also support the above extended pattern
      matching for files without extension.
      For example, find all files without extension:
          ?*.
    * Scripting: Now when you call an undefined function you get an error
      message "Call to undefined function: [function name]".
      Note that this change might theoretically break old scripts that were
      loose with quoting their strings. But the gain in safety is worth the low
      "risk". It's not really a risk but just a message that you can click away.
      You then should go to the source and improve the code.
    * User-Defined Functions: Also the two special script constants, TRUE (1)
      and FALSE (0), now work as default parameters.
      Example:
        echo IsTrue();  //1
        function IsTrue($b = True) {return $b}
    ! Portable File Associations: Did not work in jurassic, uh, classic view.
      Air-fixed.
    ! Relative path double-dot syntax did not work anymore since 20150428. Fixed.

Code: Select all
v15.00.0518 - 2015-04-30 09:48
    * User-Defined Functions: XY native variables (e.g. <crlf>) and environment
      variables (e.g. %tmp%) in function argument default parameters are now
      resolved if they are unquoted or double-quoted. They are NOT resolved if
      they are single-quoted.
      Example 1:
        text Lines("1. line", "2. line");
        function Lines($a, $b, $linebreak = "<crlf>") {return $a . $linebreak . $b}
      Example 2:
        text DataPath();
        function DataPath($path = "<xydata>") {return $path}
    + Shell Context Menu | Shortcut Target | Copy Shortcut Target Item: Now it
      processes all selected LNK files.
    + Shell Context Menu | Shortcut Target | Copy Shortcut Target Name: Now it
      processes all selected LNK files.
    + Portable File Associations: Now you can add menu separators to your
      definitions, either global ones or context-specific ones. Lets you
      structure your open with popup menu.
      Examples (the +  stands for a tick in the checkbox):
        +-
        +txt>-
        +txt;ini>-
        +txt;ini>-
        +{:Image}>-
      A logic has been implemented that will automatically reduce consecutive
      separators to one.
    ! Tree: Under certain conditions the Tree would trigger a MouseUp when the
      MouseDown did not happen on the Tree. Fixed.
    ! SC writefile: Bogus "No such argument" script error since yesterday. Fixed.
