Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v15.50.0001 - 2015-07-30 10:31
    * Tags: Experimentally added tweak TagsSeparator to customize the separator
      between the tags of an item. The factory default separator is , (comma).
      Rules:
        - just one character is allowed, not more
        - but not any of these: <>|*?
        - disobey these rules and the default separator (comma) is used
      Example:
        TagsSeparator=;
      Notes:
      - If you currently use multiple tags per item they will not be parsed
        correctly after tweaking the separator.
      - Also your current Tag List (Tag MRU) will be destroyed.
      - If you share your tags with other users this is the recipe for disaster.
        Don't even think of using this tweak!
    ! Date Picker: The "Today" button was not translated, and the tooltip was
      not updated on language change. Fixed.
    ! MLS/ITT: Fixed the cause of a recent issue with a phantom line in the
      reference file which crashed the ITT when clicked.

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

:!: Note that BETA versions are work in progress and might contain fresh bugs. You have been warned.
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.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v15.40.0107 - 2015-07-27 21:39
    + Special Properties: Added two new properties for photos (all read from
      Exif data). Of course, they are all available in XY variables as well as in
      Special Property Columns and as Special Properties in Custom Columns.
       
        Name              Example for Usage as Variable
        ----------------------------------------------------
        Exposure Bias     text "<prop #image.exposurebias>";
        Exposure Program  text "<prop #image.exposureprog>";
     
      The new properties are implemented for the following image file formats:
        - jpg.jpeg.jpe.tif.tiff.psd.psb
        - all RAW formats     
      FYI, the XY Special Properties are much faster than the Shell Extended
      Properties. And another plus: They are independent of those volatile
      shell property indices that appear to change with every Windows release.
    > FYI, Exposure Program can have any of the following values:
        ""          'Not defined
        "Manual"    'Manual
        "Normal"    'Normal program
        "Aperture"  'Aperture priority
        "Shutter"   'Shutter priority
        "Creative"  'Creative program (biased toward depth of field)
        "Action"    'Action program (biased toward fast shutter speed)
        "Portrait"  'Portrait mode (for closeup photos with the background out of focus)
        "Landscape" 'Landscape mode (for landscape photos with the background in focus)
    * Info Panel | Meta: Now photos with EXIF show Exposure Program and Exposure
      Bias. Metering Mode has been removed.
    + Floating Preview: Added "Open With..." to the context menu. Open XY's
      Portable Open With menu.
    + Floating Preview: In a playful mood I added Invert and Grayscale to the
      Advanced Options. Do with it what you want. :)

v15.40.0105 - 2015-07-26 21:03
    + View | Caches: Added command "Create Missing Thumbnails". This had already
      been present in the context menu of the View-related Toolbar buttons. Now
      it's a main menu command and can have a keyboard shortcut.
    + Photo Data: Added Exposure Bias to the data (shown in Tiles and Floating
      Preview).
    + Floating Preview: Added a tweak to control the white border width by
      absolute pixels. E.g. for a 2-pixel border:
        FPWhiteBorderPixels=2
      If this tweak is set (is not 0) then the tweak FPWhiteBorderPercent is
      ignored.
    ! SC selfilter: The following line would not select all items containing a
      blank but all items in the list.
        selfilter " ";
      Fixed.

v15.40.0104 - 2015-07-26 16:30
    * Floating Preview: Slightly reorganized the right-click menu. Added a
      direct link to the "Avanced Options...".
    * Toolbar | Paper Folders | Allow Zombies: Now, if enabled, then Paper
      Folder Zombies are listed in search results of Paper Folders, so you can
      now search for names or tags of non-existing items.
      Also Find Files Caching will now remember those Paper Folder Zombies.
    ! Find Files: The following patterns did not work as expected. Fixed.
        lent:12
        len:100
    ! Find Files Without Extension: The test for no-extension patterns was not
      alright. A pattern "Star.Trek." was wrongly seen as a no-extension pattern and
      hence would never match anything since it also included a dot in the
      middle. Fixed. Now, the ONLY dot in a pattern has to be the last character
      to make it a no-extension pattern.
      The same fix has been applied to Visual Filters, Custom File Icons, and
      Portable File Associations.

v15.40.0103 - 2015-07-25 13:19
    + Find Files | Date: Now you got buttons to pop the Date Picker.
    + Tag Search: Added tweak to allow partial matches in tag search. There are
      three values:
       
        TagsFindPartialMatch=0      match the whole tag (factory default)
                                    e.g. pattern "rock" matches tag "rock"
       
        TagsFindPartialMatch=1      match any words in tag
                                    e.g. pattern "rock" matches tag "rock and roll"
       
        TagsFindPartialMatch=2      match any part of tag
                                    e.g. pattern "rock" matches tag "rocking" or "sprock"
                                   
      The tweak affects Quick Search as well as Find Files | Tags. It affects
      only tags, not labels or comments.
      If a pattern has wildcards and there is NO verbatim flag (/v), then the
      tweak is ignored and matching is done against the present wildcards.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.63.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.63.lng is uploaded.

    * Histogram: Now it's a toggle and remembered between images and sessions.
      Renamed it to "Show Histogram" (Ctrl+H @ Floating Preview).
    + Tweak to create the histogram rather from the original image than from the
      preview:
        FPHistogramOriginal=1
      Will take notably more time, of course, on huge originals.

    * Floating Preview | Histogram: Now the median is marked by coloring.
      Separates the dark half of the pixels from the bright half.
    * Floating Preview | Histogram: Now the mean is marked by coloring. The
      Histogram bar at the mean is colored darker.
    > Floating Preview | Histogram: Note that the histogram is always created on
      the currently visible preview pixels. So if you just view a part of the
      picture you will get a histogram just of that part.

      peaks on certain values.

    + Info Panel | Find Files | Date: Added an experimental Date Picker to the
      "between" and "and/add" fields. Press F1 when in either of the fields. The
      rest should be self-explaining.
      Credits for the basics of the Date Picker code go to T. Jackson who posted
      this code to the public domain in 2006.
    * Info Panel | Find Files | Date: The values in the "between" and "and/add"
      fields are not normalized anymore, i.e. whatever you enter will be left
      unchanged. Before, dates were rewritten in the current system date format.
    * Tweak CustomCopyNoLog: Removed the message. Too intrusive.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0077.
    ! Visual Filters and Quick Search: Did not handle "time-less" ISO dates
      alright. Now this works:
        dateM: 2015-05-18
      FYI, this always worked:
        dateM: 2015-05-18 - 2015-05-27
