Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v14.70.0010 - 2014-12-20 13:34
    + Find Files and Quick Search: Added switch /x (think, uh, "no") by which
      the search will return all folders that don't contain any matching items.
      Examples:
        readme.txt /x  //return all folders that don't contain a file readme.txt
        *.jpg /x       //return all folders that don't contain any JPEG file
        /x             //return all folders that don't contain anything (= are empty)
        size: > 50KB /x   //return all folders that don't contain files larger 50KB
        prop:#empty:1 /x  //return all folders that don't contain any empty files
      Notes:
      - The no-parent switch can be combined with all other switches and all search
        filters (Name, Size, Date, Attributes, Tags, Contents) apart from Dupes.
      - The no-parent switch cannot be combined with a tags database search
        since the database does not know or care about folders that are not
        listed in it. So when you pass the switch to a tags search it will not
        use the fast indexed approach but the normal file system approach:       
          green /Lp     //indexed search
          lbl:green /p  //indexed search
          green /Lx     //non-indexed search
          lbl:green /x  //non-indexed search
      - You may combine /p and /x, but it will not make much sense since then
        simply all scanned folders are returned, including the top folder:
          readme.txt /px //return all folders incl. the search location (!)
      - NOTE: The switches /p and /x will not return drive roots but just
        folders.
    * Find Files and Quick Search: On Dupes search the switches /p and /x are
      ignored now. The results would be just too useless.

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
v14.70.0009 - 2014-12-19 14:25
  +++ Find Files and Quick Search: Added switch /p (think "parent") by which the
      search will return the parent folders of the matching items.
      Examples:
        readme.txt /p  //return all folders that contain a file readme.txt
        green /Lp      //return all folders that contain a file labeled "green"
        /p             //return all folders that are not empty (= that are parents)
      Notes:
      - The parent switch can be combined with all other switches and all search
        filters (Name, Size, Date, Attributes, Tags, Contents, Dupes). It even
        works on a tags database search.
        Note: On a Dupes search with parent switch you can get duplicate folders
        in the list.
      - With the exception of a Dupes search, the logic takes care that you get
        no duplicate items in the results.
      - Tip: To run e.g. a Date-filtered search without any Name filter just
        enter the naked parent switch into the Name field and enable the Name
        filter:
        /p
      - This is a pretty cool enhancement! And translators will love it since it
        works without a single new word. :)
    + Find Files and Quick Search: Added switch /e (think "empty") by which the
      search will return only empty files (empty = zero bytes) and empty folders
      (empty = no items contained).
      Examples:
        a* /e       //finds all empty items starting with "a"
        a* /ef      //finds all empty files starting with "a"
        a* /ed      //finds all empty folders starting with "a"       
    + SC property enhanced: Added argument "#Empty" to return whether a file or
      folder is empty or not.
        #Empty      = Emptiness
                      Returned bits:
                        1 = it's a file
                        2 = it's a folder
                        4 = it has contents
                      So, these are the possible results:
                        0 = item not found
                        1 = empty file
                        5 = non-empty file
                        2 = empty folder
                        6 = non-empty folder
      Examples: 
        text property("#Empty");  //defaults to current tree or list item
        text property("#Empty", "E:\Test\funstuff\goodfellas.jpg");
      It can also be used for search (which is the really interesting usage, but
      the new switch /e is much easier to use):
        prop:#empty:1   //finds all empty files
        prop:#empty:2   //finds all empty folders
        prop:#empty:5   //finds all non-empty files
        prop:#empty:6   //finds all non-empty folders
        !prop:#empty:2  //finds items apart from empty folders
        :prop:#empty:1 OR 2 //finds all empty files and folders
    ! Find Files: Searching for labels performed a lazy partial match. Not a
      good idea since searching for label "correct" did also match label
      "incorrect". Fixed.

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

      application will handle the input in a civilised way.

Code: Select all
v14.70.0007 - 2014-12-18 12:09
    + Portable File Associations: Now you can use generic file types (e.g.
      Image, Audio, Archive) in the PFA definition.
      Examples:
        {:Photo}>C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Photoshop.exe
        "Text|Notepad" {:Text};csv>Notepad
    * Tiles Photo Data: Now the Date Taken is formatted like the file dates in
      the list. Even Zodiac is supported (for the freaks among you).
    * Tiles Photo Data: Removed some spaces from the Exif data to make them
      tighter and better readable.
    ! Show Photo Data: Toggling it did not have immediate effect anymore. Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v14.70.0006 - 2014-12-17 13:27
    + Custom Columns: Now you can use generic file types, e.g. Image, in the
      Filter definition using the following syntax (as already implemented for
      Visual Filters in v11.80.0105):
        General: {:Type}
        Example: {:Image}
      This spares you typing long list of extensions (jpg;png;gif ...).
      The following types are supported:
        {:Text}       * (add extensions: Previewed Formats / Text Files)
        {:Image}      * (add extensions: Previewed Formats / Image Files)
        {:Photo}      * (add extensions: Previewed Formats / Image Files)
        {:Audio}      * (add extensions: Previewed Formats / Audio & Video Files)
        {:Video}      * (add extensions: Previewed Formats / Audio & Video Files)
        {:Media}      *  = Audio + Video
        {:Font}       * (add extensions: Previewed Formats / Font Files)
        {:Vector}
        {:Web}        * (add extensions: Previewed Formats / Web & Office Files)
        {:Office}     * (add extensions: Previewed Formats / Web & Office Files)
        {:Archive}
        {:Executable}
      Examples for filters:
        {:Audio}        Match all audio formats
        {:Audio};txt    Match all audio formats and TXT
        !nef;{:Photo}   Match all photo formats but not NEF
      Notes:
      - The types marked * in the list above can be customized in
        Configuration | Previewed Formats.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v14.70.0002 - 2014-12-16 21:23
    + Special Properties: Added five 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
        --------------------------------------------------
        Camera Model    text "<prop #image.cameramodel>";
        Focal Length    text "<prop #image.focallength>";
        F-Stop          text "<prop #image.fstop>";
        Exposure Time   text "<prop #image.exposuretime>";
        ISO Speed       text "<prop #image.isospeed>";
     
      The new properties are implemented for the following image file formats:
        - jpg.jpeg.jpe.tif.tiff
        - 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.
    % Tiles Views: Showing Photo Data is now much faster than before: It's now
      retrieved by the XY Special Properties engine instead of using the slow
      Shell Extended Properties.
    * View | Columns | New Column: Renamed to "Add Column". The newly added
      column is called "(Undefined)". Before, it was called "New".
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.55.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.55.lng is uploaded.
        You will be notified if you have subscribed to this thread:
        http://www.xyplorer.com/xyfc/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=9648
    ! Configuration | Templates | Incremental affix: The changes from
      v14.60.0221 were not yet implemented to XYcopy. Fixed.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0062.
    ! Tiles Views with Photo Data: Fixed a logic bug in the photo data cache. Now
      switching back and forth between Tiles and other views is much faster,
      actually instantaneous.
    ! MDBU of animated GIFs: The main window lost input focus after closing the
      blow up. Fixed.

    * Tree: Now you can copy a folder into its own parent and the copy is
      auto-renamed by the shell if "Configuration | File Operations | Custom
      Copy Operations | Use Custom Copy" is OFF. Before, you got a message that
      the operation is not allowed.
    * Configuration | Templates | Incremental affix: Now the following formats
      are allowed and processed as (probably) expected:
        Templates             Examples
        ----------------------------------------------
        Copy of *             Copy of File.png
                              Copy of File (1).png
                              Copy of File (2).png
         - Copy
                              File - Copy.png
                              File - Copy (1).png
                              File - Copy (2).png
      This enhancement allows you to simulate Windows own way to handle name
      collisions.

v14.60.0217 - 2014-12-11 18:36
    + Menu View | Folder View Settings | Manage Folder Views: Experimentally
      (not officially documented) added a way to apply any of the defined Folder
      Views to the current folder (just ad hoc and temporarily, without making
      it the permanent view for this folder): Hold CTRL while you OK the dialog.
      That way you can have an arsenal of Folder Views from which you can quite
      easily select one for instant use. Cool.
    ! Paper Folders: Did not support Folder View Settings if "Always Show Path
      Column" was enabled for Paper Folders (which unfortunately is also the
      factory default). Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v14.60.0209 - 2014-12-08 20:22
    + SC tab enhanced: New operation "move". Moves a tab to a new position.
      The "data" parameter has the new position (first position is 1; defaults
      to 1). Position 1 is the first position, 2 the 2nd etc. Position 0 (zero)
      is the last position. Positions smaller than 0 are calculated from the
      right end: -1 = pre-last position etc. Positions higher than the number of
      tabs are treated like zero: tab is moved to the last position.
      The "index" parameter can be used to define the tab to move. If missing
      then the current tab is moved.
      Examples:
        tab("move", 1);     //move current tab to 1st position
        tab("move");        //(same as above)
        tab("move", 4);     //move current tab to 4th position
        tab("move", 4, 2);  //move 2nd tab to 4th position
        tab("move", 0);     //move current tab to last position
        tab("move", -1);    //move current tab to pre-last position
    * SC selfilter: Selecting items by their line number got slightly different
      factory defaults, and step=0 is not possible anymore but internally set to
      1 (the previous functionality is covered by SC sel):
      Syntax: selfilter [pattern], [type (f|d)], [column], [add]
        pattern: [start=1],[step=1]
        column:   #
      Examples:
        selfilter "3", , "#";   //select all from position 3
        selfilter "3,", , "#";  //(same as above)
        selfilter "3,1", , "#"; //(same as above)
        selfilter "3,2", , "#"; //select every 2nd from position 3
        selfilter ",4", , "#";  //select every 4th from position 1
        selfilter "", , "#";    //select all from position 1
        selfilter "0,0", , "#"; //(same as above)
    * The Address Bar might share a row with the Toolbar: Up to now there was a
      default minimum width for the Address Bar of 400 pixels. You could modify
      that value via the tweak ToolbarKeepOff.
      Now you can alternatively set a fixed width for the Address Bar via this
      tweak. e.g.:
        AddressBarWidth=300
      If AddressBarWidth is set then ToolbarKeepOff is ignored.
    ! Catalog: Ctrl+Click (open path in new background tab) did not support
      portable paths. Fixed.
    ! List | Dupes column: Right-clicking items in the Dupes column to pop a
      special context menu did not work with Full Row Select enabled. Fixed.

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