Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v15.60.0015 - 2015-08-29 20:38
    * Visual Filter: Added the "no:" prefix, the logical inversion of the "nec:"
      prefix, like a shorthand of "nec:!". It means that something must NOT match
      the following pattern. Like with "nec:" this condition is necessary but
      not sufficient. Any following filter must be passed as well.
     
      Tip for understanding: nec: and no: mean to AND this pattern with
      everything coming afterwards. Like this:
        nec:a;b;c;d                   = a AND (b OR c OR d)
        no:a;no:b;c;d                 = NOT a AND (NOT b AND (c OR d))
        nec:a;b;nec:c;d               = a AND (b OR (c AND (d OR e)))

      Examples:
     
        XY Visual Filter Syntax     Equals in Boolean Notation
        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        no:ageM: y; size: > 50KB    NOT modified this yea" AND larger than 50KB
        no:*.txt; a*; b*            NOT "*.txt" AND ("a*" OR "b*")
        no:*.txt;no:*.ini;ageM: y   NOT *.txt AND NOT *.ini AND modified this year
     
      Hmm, I'm tempted to change "nec:" to "yo:" ... :)
   
    * Status Bar: Active Visual Filters are always shown in the Status Bar
      tooltip now, even if they don't have any effect on the current listing.
      The filter icon, however, is only shown if anything is actually filtered
      from the current listing.

before running a new BETA version. This will also help in fixing any fresh bugs.

    * Floating Preview: Now the arrow keys navigate to the next (Right, Down) or
      the previous (Left, Up) image. Always, also in zoomed view. Before, those
      keys would have panned the image in zoomed view.
      Now, to pan the image by keyboard hold SHIFT while using the arrow keys.
    * New icon for non-existing files and folders. The old yellow warning
      triangle with black exclamation mark was a touch too alarming IMO. Now
      it's a question mark on a grey-white circle. More neutral and relaxing.

Code: Select all
v15.60.0011 - 2015-08-28 14:39
    + SC new enhanced: Now you can use the function to create hardlinks and
      junctions.
      Syntax: new([name], [type=file|dir|link|symlink|hardlink|junction], [source], [flags])
        type:
          hardlink: Create a hardlink to the item stated in the "source" argument.
                This function works for files only.
          junction: Create a junction to the item stated in the "source" argument.
                This function works for folders only.
      Examples:
        new(, "hardlink");  //creates hardlink to currently selected files
        new(, "junction"); //creates junction to currently selected folder
    ! Shell Context Menu: Under certain conditions no context menu was shown for
      multiple selections of different file types. This would happen more likely
      if "Configuration | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Context Menus | Hide shell
      extensions from shell context menu" was ticked. Fixed.
    ! Scripting: The statement-wise step-marker "?" should overwrite the other
      step-related flags but did not. Fixed.

Code: Select all
v15.60.0010 - 2015-08-27 10:04
    + Scripting: Now the parser recognizes the common prefix 0x for hexadecimal
      values. Supported are up to 4 bytes per number, i.e. 8 hex digits. The hex
      digits are case-insensitive (the prefix is not).
      Here for some examples; hex values are automatically resolved to decimal
      values:
        echo 0xa; //10
        echo 0xA; //10
        echo 0xFFFFFF;   //16777215
        echo 0xFFFFFFFF; //-1
        echo 0x7FFFFFFF; // 2147483647
        echo 0x80000000; //-2147483648
        echo 0xA + 0xA; //20
       The following are examples for invalid hex strings; they are returned
       unresolved:
        echo 0xG;           //0xG (invalid value)
        echo 0x;            //0x  (no value)
        echo 0XA;           //0XA (wrong prefix)
        echo 0x123456789;   //0x123456789 (too many characters)
        echo "0x12345678";  //0x12345678 (quoted)
      Tip: To convert HTML #RRGGBB colors to color decimals use this formula:
        echo 0xBBGGRR;
    * Dual Pane: Now, if "Configuration | Dual Pane | Shade inactive pane" is
      ticked, then the text and back colors of the line numbers in the active
      and inactive pane will differ slightly.
      The values for the inactive pane can currently only be tweaked. These are
      the factory defaults:
        clrLineNumTextInactive=9211020
        clrLineNumBackInactive=15856113
      Those decimal color values are obviously not very user-friendly (but the
      above scripting enhancements comes to rescue). When I find the time I will
      add a GUI for this.
    - Ghost Filter: Removed the recent changes (v15.60.0009) regarding browsing
      and ghost icons. This was somewhat over the top. Also checking for ghost
      icons made everything a tiny bit slower.
    - Access Control | HiddenItems: Also this has been removed. In Access
      Control we already have the key DisallowedDirs for this.

To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

Code: Select all
v15.60.0009 - 2015-08-26 15:45
    + Ghost Filter: Now named drives are supported. For example, this Ghost
      Filter pattern will hide folder T:\DVD and all of its contents if named
      drive "Terra:\" maps to "T:\".
        d: "Terra:\DVD"
      BTW, this pattern would show the folder but none of its contents:
        Terra:\DVD\*
      Note that the following setting must be enabled for the above to work:
      Configuration | Controls and More | Miscellaneous | Support volume labels
      in paths.
    + Ghost Filter: Now you cannot browse locations hidden by Ghost Filter. The
      list will be blocked similar to browsing a location disallowed by Access
      Control.
    + Ghost Filter: Now you get the Ghost icon for all items that currently
      match a Ghost Filter.
    + Access Control | HiddenItems: Now you cannot browse locations hidden by
      HiddenItems. The list will be blocked as if the location did not exist.
    ! Ghost Filter: Did not hide items from dropdowns in the Breadcrumb Bars.
      Fixed.
    ! Ghost Filter: Did not hide items from Tree Node Crumbs. Fixed.

      Flattens the right-clicked tree folder (using the default settings of SC
      FlattenFolder).
      Check the item to add the command to the context menu of tree folders.

        Flatten Folder
      Flattens the right-clicked folder (using the default settings of SC
      FlattenFolder).
      Check the item to add the command to the context menu of list folders.
    ! Flatten Folder: Undo would not recreate subfolders that were originally
      empty before executing Flatten Folder. Fixed. Now the Undo/Redo of Flatten
      Folder is divided in two steps:
      - move the files
      - delete the empty subfolders
      To completely undo/redo Flatten Folder you have to click undo
      (respectively redo) twice.

Code: Select all
v15.60.0006 - 2015-08-24 21:29
    * SC FlattenFolder: Changed how the default folder is determined: A folder
      in List must be *focused AND selected* to be chosen.
      And changed the flags default value (to none) and the way to show/hide the
      security prompt.
      Syntax: flattenfolder([folder], [flags], [separator_name="-"], [separator_return=CRLF])
        folder: (optional) Folder to flatten.
                If missing then:
                  If List has focus and a folder is focused AND selected in
                    List, then this folder is flattened.
                  Else: Defaults to the current folder.
        flags:
                n: No safety prompt. Nerves like steel.
      Examples:
        flattenfolder();    //flatten current folder, safety prompt
        flattenfolder(, "n"); //same, but without prompt
        // flatten this folder, prefix folder names separated by "+", show prompt:
        flattenfolder("E:\Test\flatten-01", "f", "+");
    ! Configuration | Jump to Setting: The commands behind the buttons
      "Configuration | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Context Menus | Folder Tree..."
      and "File List..." were still missing from the list. Fixed.

Code: Select all
v15.60.0005 - 2015-08-24 17:14
    * SC FlattenFolder: Completely redesigned, bug-fixed, and enhanced.
      Undo/Redo is now supported! Watch out for the new order and type of
      arguments!
      Name: FlattenFolder
      Action: Flattens a folder.
      Syntax: flattenfolder([folder], [flags="s"], [separator_name="-"], [separator_return=CRLF])
        folder: (optional) Folder to flatten.
                If missing then:
                  If List has focus and a folder is focused in List, then
                    this folder is flattened.
                  Else: Defaults to the current folder.
        flags:  (in any order)
                s: [default] Pop safety prompt.
                m: Return name mappings: old > new (else just new names are returned).
                p: Preview only: Just return names/mappings, no actual flattening.
                f: Prefix folder names to file names: Maps the folder structure
                   to the filenames. Advantage: Avoids any collisions and keeps
                   the information with the files. Disadvantage: Names can get long.
        separator_name:   Separates the folder names in the filename if flag "f" is passed.
                          Defaults to "-".
        separator_return: Separates the items in the return value.
                          Defaults to CRLF.
        return: List of contents of the folder after being flattened; items with
                full path, separated by separator.
                On flag "m", name mappings are returned (see above).
      Remarks:
        - The function will auto-avoid filename collisions by affixing
          increments to the new name according to the user settings
          (Configuration | Templates | Filename Affixes).
        - Undo/Redo is supported.
        - The tags database is updated for the moved items.
        - Warning: This command can easily destroy a complex folder structure.
          Therefore a safety prompt has to be OK-ed before the rumble begins
          (unless you overwrite the default flag "s").
      Examples:
        flattenfolder();    //flatten current folder, safety prompt
        flattenfolder(, ""); //same, but without prompt
        text flattenfolder(); //flatten and show return
        text flattenfolder(, "mp"); //just show return (name mappings), no flattening
        // flatten this folder, prefix folder names separated by "+", show prompt:
        flattenfolder("E:\Test\flatten-01", "sf", "+");
    ! Interface Translation Tool: Drawing glitches on high contrast themes. Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v15.60.0001 - 2015-08-20 20:02
    + Drag and Drop: Added tweaks to overwrite the default operations on
      intra-volume (same drive) and cross-volume (different drive) drags. FYI,
      the default operations take effect when no CTRL/SHIFT keys are pressed
      while dragging.
     
        Key                 Values
        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        DragOpIntraVolume   0 = System Default (Move)
                            1 = Copy
                            2 = Move
        DragOpCrossVolume   0 = System Default (Copy)
                            1 = Copy
                            2 = Move
     
      For example, to always move:
        DragOpIntraVolume=2
        DragOpCrossVolume=2

      For example, to invert the system default (i.e. to copy intra-volume and
      move cross-volume):
        DragOpIntraVolume=1
        DragOpCrossVolume=2
     
    * List | Smart Right Click: On the Name column you now get an option to copy
      the item's special path (if there is any):
       
        Type          Example
        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        Full Path     C:\Users\Donald\Desktop\Thumbs.db
        Special Path  Desktop\Thumbs.db
        File Title    Thumbs.db
        Base Name     Thumbs
       
    ! Scripting: The "?" prefix to force stepping per statement (introduced
      v6.80.0043 - 2008-01-27 15:16) did not work with functions, only with
      commands. Fixed. Now this works:
        ::?ghost(, -1); //toggle ghost filter

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

Download: http://www.xyplorer.com/download.php

Code: Select all
v15.60.0000 - 2015-08-18 12:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Ghost Filter. The Ghost Filter lets you globally hide particular files and
      folders. E.g. the stuff you almost never want to see anywhere, like those
      desktop.ini and Thumbs.db files, or items beginning with a dot. Or the
      stuff you don't want to see just now for whatever reason. (Pro Edition
      Only)
  +++ Access Control. And here's the Ghost Filter for the boss. As admin you now
      can completely hide particular items from the users, on a per-user basis.
      Might add some safety to your company. (Pro Edition Only)
  +++ QuickSearch. The new QuickSearch function connects scripting with
      XYplorer's powerful search engine. (Pro Edition Only)
  +++ Floating Preview. Now you can navigate your photos by left mouse click.
  +++ Lock Zoom Position. Optionally keep the zoom position when switching
      images in the preview. Useful when comparing details of different versions
      of the same image.

It's a good idea to backup your complete XYplorer settings (menu File | Settings Special | Backup Application Data Folder...)
before running a new BETA version. This will also help in fixing any fresh bugs.
