v15.20.0202 - 2015-05-26 13:24
    + Toolbar: Added a tweak to zoom the whole main toolbar by a factor between
      0.5 and 8. For example, this would double the size:
        ToolbarZoom=2
      Note that the stretched native toolbar graphics will be rendered pixely.
      There is no smoothing available here. Custom Toolbar Buttons, OTOH, using
      the new option to employ larger PNGs etc will look great.
      If you like to push big things, try this:
        ToolbarZoom=8
      Just trying to add some fun to computing... :)
    > Crazy Tip: Just another fun fact, you can set the CTB icon to this:
        <clipboard>
      If you have an image path in the clipboard when starting XY the button
      will show the image. Now you find a use for this...
    + Scripting: Now you can also use image files of the following formats to
      define the icons in multi-script menus:
        PNG, JPG, GIF, BMP, TIF
      XY variables and environment variables are supported. The path defaults to
      the XY icon path <xyicons>.
      Example:
        "Katy|Katy.png"
          echo 'hello';
        "Betty|Betty.jpg"
          echo 'hello';
        "Thumbs Up|t-up.ico"
          echo 'hello';
    ! View | Caches | Refresh Selected Thumbnails: Did not work anymore. Fixed.

    + Custom Toolbar Buttons: Now you can use references to image files of the
      following formats to define the button graphics:
        PNG, JPG, GIF, BMP, TIF
      XY variables and environment variables are supported. The path defaults to
      the XY icon path <xyicons>.
      Note that you don't even have to care for the size, not even for the
      ratio (it will be auto-shrunk and centered as necessary)! You can define a
      3000 x 2000 pixel PNG as button icon if you like... and if you don't care
      for the time it takes to load and shrink such a file on every mouse over.
      Yes, this is the price for having your girlfriend/clooney as a toolbar
      button: The graphics are live-loaded from disk. But no worries, it's very
      fast with small files. 24 x 24 pixel is optimal, of course. So, a little
      pre-processing can pay off.
    ! Shell Drag: Did not work from special folders in Tree, e.g. from Desktop.
      Fixed.

Code: Select all
v15.20.0111 - 2015-05-24 10:12
    + Scripting: Added "include_once" statement. It's identical to the "include"
      statement, with the only difference being that if the code from a file has
      already been included, it will not be included again.
      Quoting PHP docs (from where I also copied the name "include_once"):
        "include_once may be used in cases where the same file might be included
        and evaluated more than once during a particular execution of a script,
        so in this case it may help avoid problems such as function
        redefinitions, variable value reassignments, etc."
      There are no errors or messages. Trying to include_once an already included
      file will simply ignore the statement and continue.
    * Show Age: Added week(s) as a unit between years and days.
    * Show Age: From now on fractional values are floored, not rounded:
        Before: 11 days = 2 weeks;  91 mins = 2 hours
           Now: 11 days = 1 week;   91 mins = 1 hour
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.62.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.62.lng is uploaded.

    + Configuration | Fonts: Added option "Enable zoom by Ctrl+mouse wheel".
      Tick to enable zooming the fonts or metrics of various interface elements by
      Ctrl+mouse wheel.
      Notes:
      - Different areas and aspects are affected depending on where the mouse
        points to and which other control keys are held down. This also includes
        Shift+mouse wheel in Tree to alter the node indent... yes, there is no
        Ctrl key here, but hey....
      - The factory default is ON.
      - This behavior has been hard-coded to ON in previous versions.
      - This new option replaces the NoSizingByWheel which is hereby removed.

Code: Select all
v15.20.0106 - 2015-05-22 15:23
    + Configuration | Shell Integration: Added new section "Drag and Drop" with
      new option "Use standard shell drag and drop". Tick it to use the new drag
      method added in v15.20.0105. It provides better (actually full) support
      for certain more sophisticated (or IOW less compatible) drop targets.
      Factory default is ON.
      So, why the option to turn this OFF? Well, with the new way I cannot
      customize the mouse pointers anymore when hovering certain drop targets
      within XYplorer. I personally find this visual feedback useful, and I
      don't need the new drag method. That's why.
    * The new drag-and-drop-from-XYplorer is now implemented in the Tree as
      well. I also added some internal refinements to it that should solve the
      rest of the remaining issues some users were reporting.
      Notes:
      - This method is not be applied when dragging from Portable Devices.
    + Tweak AgeDecimalPlaces got an additional value to show a smart and
      friendly age format:
        AgeDecimalPlaces=-1
      It will output something like this:
         3 mins, 58 secs
           1 hr, 11 mins
          2 hrs, 55 mins
          12 days, 2 hrs
    + Portable Devices: Added mild support for Paper Folders. This is more like
      an internal notice. I will not advertise this. But you can drop items from
      PD to PF now. Seems to work. :)
    ! Thumbnails: "Refresh selected thumbnails" and "Create missing thumbnails"
      could not be stopped by ESC. Fixed.

v15.20.0105 - 2015-05-21 20:23
  *** List: Experimentally rewrote drag-and-drop-from-XYplorer from scratch.
      This might solve some problems where drop targets other than XYplorer
      itself did not see the drop. But it might also add unknown new problems.
      Drag-and-drop is a jungle.
      Notes:
      - Currently only implemented for drags from the List, not from the Tree.
      - The mouse pointer cannot be customized anymore now. You will get the
        simple Windows default pointers anywhere within XYplorer (no more
        special black pointers over Catalog or Paper Folder, sigh). On the
        positive side, you get the nice modern luxury pointers over any drop
        target that supports them.
      - Vista and later only.

v15.20.0104 - 2015-05-21 15:43
    + Configuration | Styles: Added "Show Age maximum hours (0 = unlimited)".
      Here you can limit the Age display in the List. For example, enter 24 to
      show the age for all ages <= 24 hours, for larger ages it would show the
      absolute, uhm, birth date (as if "Show Age" was turned off).
      FYI, here is where Show Age is toggled:
        Tools | Customize List | Date Column Format | Show Age
    + Added tweak to show any fractional parts in Age display. This would show the
      age with two decimal places:
        AgeDecimalPlaces=2
    * Tree: Going up via Backspace key now supports "Configuration | Tree and
      List | List | Select last used subfolder" in List. Wasn't the case before.
      The Backspace key is not hard-coded anymore to trigger "go up" in the Tree.
      Only if there is no keyboard shortcut assigned to "Go | Up" then Backspace
      takes over in the Tree and goes up.
    ! Thumbnails: Another try to make it all work. It's now pretty much back to
      v15.20.0001.
