    * Scripting: Now you can pass XY variables without quoting even if they
      contain dots. Before, the dots would have been seen concatenators.
      Both examples return the same:
        echo <date dd.mm.yyyy>;
        echo "<date dd.mm.yyyy>";

    * Paper Folders: From now on folder sizes in Paper Folders are only
      calculated if "Configuration | Tree and List | Tree | In network locations
      as well" is ticked. In a future version there will be an extra setting for
      this.
    ! Find Files: Loose Boolean Match patterns ("a b" = "a AND b") were wrongly
      parsed if any of the parts contained the character "0" (zero). This
      idiotic bug was probably introduced 20140616. Fixed.

      fifteen.

    * Scripting: From now, on dereferencing does NOT take place in interpolation.
      FYI, interpolation means that variables that are embedded in double-quoted or
      unquoted strings are resolved.
      Compare the following scripts. Only in the last one $a is dereferenced:
        $a = '$b'; $b = "Test"; echo "*$a!";  //*$b!
        $a = '$b'; $b = "Test"; echo *$a!;    //*$b!
        $a = '$b'; $b = "Test"; echo "*$a";   //*$b
        $a = '$b'; $b = "Test"; echo *$a;     //Test
     
      Also in these scripts using HEREDOC $a is not dereferenced but resolved to "$b":
        $a = '$b'; $b = "Test"; echo <<<FOO
        *$a!
        FOO

        $a = '$b'; $b = "Test"; echo <<<FOO
        *$a
        FOO

    + Toolbar | Paper Folders: Added another setting to the right-click menu:
      - Show Information Bar in the List
        Toggles the Paper Folder Information Bar.
    * Breadcrumb Bar: New handling of Paper Folders. Now clicking the components
      will bring you to the clicked folder, just like you expect it to happen.
    * Paper Folders: Now when you save a manually sorted list the sort order
      will automatically be set to Index (ascending). This will preserve the new
      sort order in the view. Before, the sort order jumped back to the order
      that was active before you started manual sorting, which felt pretty
      unnatural.
    ! Tree Path Tracing: Drawing glitch with Narrow Tree style. Fix #2.

Code: Select all
v14.30.0002 - 2014-07-12 13:08
    + Paper Folders: Now you can show an Information Bar in the list whenever a
      Paper Folder is listed, similar to the Information Bars for Quick Searches
      and Visual Filters.
      Currently only implemented as tweak (the translators need a summer break):
        PFWarning=1
      The factory default is ON.
    + Visual Filters: To hide all files simply prefix "!*|" to the
      pattern(s). For example:
        !*|a*   -> Hide all files and show only folders with a*
        !*|*    -> Hide all files and show all folders
    ! Scripting: Incrementing arguments did not work correctly. The variable was
      first incremented and then returned, however the correct way should have
      been the other way round: First return the current value, then increment
      it. Fixed. Here are some examples:
        $a = 1; echo $a++; echo $a;     //1; 2
        $a = 1; echo 1 + $a++; echo $a; //2; 2
        $a = 1; echo $a++ + 1; echo $a; //2; 2
      Note in the following that the left operand is incremented before the
      right operand is added. Finally, after the addition, the right operand is
      incremented:
        $a = 1; echo $a++ + $a++; echo $a; //3; 3
      The same also works for dereferenced variables:
        $var = '$a'; *$var = 1; echo *$var++; echo *$var;     //1; 2
        $var = '$a'; *$var = 1; echo 1 + *$var++; echo *$var; //2; 2
        $var = '$a'; *$var = 1; echo *$var++ + 1; echo *$var; //2; 2
        $var = '$a'; *$var = 1; echo *$var++ + *$var++; echo *$var; //3; 3
      >>> NOTE: This change breaks all scripts using incrementing arguments as
        introduced in v10.80.0010 - 2012-01-23 17:50. A solution will be found
        before the next official release.
    ! Tree Path Tracing: Fixed a drawing glitch with Narrow Tree style.
    ! Paper Folders | Always Show Path Column: Did not yet catch all situations.
      Fixed.

        $var = '$a'; *$var = 1; echo 1 + *$var++; //3
    ! Scripting: The following kind of statement was not parsed correctly. Now

        $a = 1; echo $a++ + 1; //3
