    * Mouse Down Blow Up of Text: Removed the feature for Office files. Too many
      users have MS Office and it won't work for them because MS Office does not
      install 32-bit IFilters on 64-bit Windows.
      If you have OpenOffice you can tweak it to work:
        MDBUonTextOffice=1
    ! FVS with VF: Did not always apply the VF under certain conditions. Fixed.

    + Mouse Down Blow Up Hex: Now you can blow up the raw hexadecimal contents
      (what can be shown of them in one view) of any file by holding CTRL while
      you down the mouse on thumbnail or icon. Works with any file type (but not

      The hex data are shown in blue, as opposed to normal text data which are
      shown in black.
    > Note that the font used for MDBU Hex/Text is controlled in Configuration |
      Fonts | Edit Text.

  +++ Mouse Down Blow Up of Text: Now you can blow up the textual contents (what
      can be shown of them in one view) of files!
      - Supports all Text Files listed in Previewed Formats.
      - Supports all Web & Office Files listed in Previewed Formats.
      - PDFs are excluded as they are usually better shown as an image thumbnail.
      - Automatic UTF8 decoding.
      - The blow up is always centered initially (else the top of the text is
        often out of view).
      - Mouse Down Blow Up on Icons is supported.
      It's so good I hard-coded it to simply happen out of the box.
    + Portable File Associations: Now XY native variables and environment
      variables are supported in the pattern list. E.g., the following PFA will
      only match TXT files in the Paper Folder folder:
        <xypaper>\*.txt>::echo <focitem>;
    * Updated the help file.
    ! Tabs: Fixed more glitches with the new custom colors.

    + Configuration | Styles | Tree path tracing: Added option "Mark nodes".
      Tick it to draw a fat square around each node of the current path.
      This has been the hard-coded style in previous versions. Now it's optional
      and the default is OFF.
    * Configuration | Styles | Tree path tracing: Renamed "Wide" to "Wide trace".
    * Tree Expansion Icons | Diamond: Improved design. Smaller squares. Slick!
    ! Tree Path Tracing: Fixed a glitch with the "wide" style.
    ! Tree Path Tracing: Fixed a glitch on custom DPI settings (e.g. 125%).

      also on the non-flat back (tweak TabFlatBack=0).
    * Tabs: X-Close buttons flat.
    ! Custom Columns: The line "end true;" in a column script would stop script
      execution for any following lines. Fixed.

      reset after their context had ended. Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v14.40.0308 - 2014-09-09 21:46
    + Configuration | Preview | Mouse down blow up: Added option "Centered".
      Tick it to always center the blow up in the window or screen (depending on
      "Use whole screen"), no matter where the thumbnail/preview is located or
      where exactly you down your mouse.
      Applies to MDBU on thumbnails, on file icons, on the Preview tab, and on
      the Floating Preview, in other words: everywhere. And on left and right
      mouse down.
      Note: If "Shrink to fit" is ticked then "Centered" has no notable effect
      since the blow up on "Shrink to fit" is centered anyway.
    * Configuration | Tabs | Always keep right end of tab bar empty: Replaced by
      the new "Show 'Tab List' button".
      Note: Upgraders will need to tick this box again if they want it. The
      setting of "Always keep right end of tab bar empty" is forgotten.
    + Configuration | Tabs | Show 'Tab List' button: Now, when space becomes
      scarce and tab headers start to shrink the Tab List button jumps from the
      right end to the left end of the tab bar, i.e. to a place that will always
      be visible even under the worst conditions (millions of tabs). So now you
      can easily select tabs that are not visible.
    * Tabs | New Tab button: Now it's drawn flat with tab style "Windows Themes"
      and a flat background (tweak TabFlatBack=1).
    ! Address Bar: From v14.20.0301 onwards you could not enter a pattern with a
      wildcard into the Address Bar anymore (and go to the first matching path).
      Fixed. Now these will probably bring you to C:\Windows:
        C:\W*
        C:\*indows
    ! List: With background set to a dark color the focus rectangle around an
      in-list error message looked like an ugly black border. Fixed.
    ! Would not let you rename removable drives. Fixed.
    ! Tabs: Fixed more glitches with the new custom colors.

      Blow Up)".   
    * Configuration | Preview | Mouse down blow up: Moved the option "On file
      icons as well" to section "Configuration | Thumbnails".
    + Tabs: Added tweak to hilite the selected on the inactive pane as well.
        TabHiliteSelOnInactivePane=1
    ! SC Replace: Buggy when the Start parameter was other than "1" -- since
      v14.40.0302 - 2014-09-04 15:39. Fixed.

v14.40.0306 - 2014-09-08 12:17
    + Configuration | Preview | Mouse down blow up: Added option "On file icons
      as well". Tick it to enable MDBU on file icons in Details and List view.
    + Mouse Down Blow Up on Icons: Now it also works for all Video files that you
      can show thumbnails for (i.e. where you have the necessary Codecs
      installed).
    + Mouse Down Blow Up on Icons: Now it also works for all RAW image files
      that you can show thumbnails for (i.e. where you have the necessary Codecs
      installed).
    * Mouse Down Blow Up on Icons: From now on, just like with MDBU on thumbs, a
      fast click (time between mousedown and mouseup <= 150 msecs) will just
      select the clicked file (and not pop the blow up).
      This also allows opening a file by double-clicking the icon.
    * Tweak TabUseCustomColorsIncludeHover: Experimentally hard-coded it to 1.

Code: Select all
v14.40.0305 - 2014-09-07 21:28
  +++ Mouse Down Blow Up: Now it also works in non-Thumbs/Tiles views! Simply
      down your mouse on the icon of an image file, be it in Details or List or
      Small Icons view.
      Works for all major image file types, including ICO and PSD, plus PDF (!)
      and animated GIF (!). Also works on LNKs to such files. Also the
      right-mouse down works like on thumbs.
      Note that the 150 msec delay for MDBU on thumbs is not necessary here so
      it is even more snappy than the MDBU you know.
      Currently this new feature is hard-coded to be enabled. Next version will
      give you a chance to turn it off.
      What a cool feature!
    * Configuration | Colors | Tabs: Now, if "Apply colors" is ticked, you can
      also have the colors be applied to the hovering of tabs (style "Windows
      Themes" only). This is currently available only as an experimental tweak:
        TabUseCustomColorsIncludeHover=1
      The hovering background color is derived from the "Other Tabs Background
      Color" by some secret formula. :)
    ! Tabs: Fixed more glitches with the new custom colors.
    * Tabs | New Tab: From now on, even if TabFlatBack=0, the New Tab button is
      not drawn using the colors defined in Configuration | Colors | Tabs.
      To go back to the old behavior use this new tweak:
        TabUseCustomColorsIncludePlus=1

    * Tabs | New Tab button: With tab style "Windows Themes" and a flat
      background (tweak TabFlatBack=1) the New Tab button is now drawn without
      background or border, looking pretty slick.
    * Configuration | Colors: Renamed "Use tabs custom colors" to "Apply
      colors". The original wording was a bit confusing.
    ! Undesired behavior on startup in relation with "Configuration | Startup &
      Exit | Open command line start path in new tab" and "Configuration |
      Startup & Exit | No network browsing on startup". Fixed.
    ! Tabs: Fixed more glitches with the new custom colors.
