    * Folder Size Caching: Folders that would not be read from cache now are
      also not written to cache. Keeps the cache smaller. Clear your current
      cache to benefit from this.
    * Folder Size Caching: Folder with "0 bytes" are generally not cached. From
      now on, however, folders with "0 bytes" *will* be cached if they contain
      256 or more items. Otherwise the performance impact would be too notable.
    ! Folder Sizes: When changing locations while folder size calculation was
      still in progress the folder sizes wouldn't be calculated in the new
      location. Fixed.
    + Help | Various Information: Added two lines about the OEM code page. For
      example in Germany:
        Default OEM code page:    850   (OEM - Multilingual Lateinisch I)
        Active OEM Code Page:     850   (OEM - Multilingual Lateinisch I)     
    ! SC runret: Issue with non-Western OEM code pages. Fix attempt.

    * Startup: Auto-Refresh now is activated only after startup if fully
      completed. This should fix some rare startup issues with some users.
    * Folder Size Caching: Now removable drives are excluded from Folder Size
      Caching. The variable drive letters don't play well with the current way
      of caching.
    * Custom Copy | Collision Prompt: Enlarged the OK button to give it the same
      optical weight and hit area as the new action buttons.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0086.
    ! Find Files: Recursive search results were shown level-indented since
      20160510 (if "Configuration | Find Files & Branch View | Branch View |
      Level-indent" was enabled). Fixed.

      For example:
        global $a =    "a"; text $a;

Code: Select all
v16.80.0006 - 2016-05-25 13:35
    ! Scripting: The string concatenation operator (.) had a fat too low
      precedence that wasn't expected when you were coming from PHP (from where
      this operator has been copied). Fixed.
      NEW order of precedence:
        -------------------------------------------
        ++ --         Math: Increment, Decrement
        ! Not         Boolean: NOT
        + -           Math: Unary Plus, Unary Minus
        * /           Math: Multiply, Divide
        %             Math: Modulo
        \             Math: Integer division
        + -           Math: Add, Subtract
        .             String concatenator
        < <= > >= == !=             Comparison
        Like LikeI UnLike UnLikeI   Comparison
        &&            Boolean: AND
        ||            Boolean: OR
        And           Boolean: AND
        Xor           Boolean: XOR
        Or            Boolean: OR
        ? :           Ternary
          <<< OLD POSITION: .             String concatenator >>>
        =             Set
        -------------------------------------------
      Example 1:
        echo "check" == "che" . "ck"; //"1" (was "0ck" before the fix!)
      Example 2:         
        echo "Tr" . "ue" or "Fa" . "lse"; //"1" (was "Tr1lse" before the fix!)
      Example 3:
        // FYI, this did NOT change compared to earlier versions:
        echo 1 + 2 . 3 + 4; // (1 + 2) . (3 + 4) = "37"
    > NOTE: Of course, the above fix can break old scripts! However, I think
      it's not very likely in real world since I would find it quite unusual that
      a scripter relied on a low precedence of the string concatenator. In all
      languages I have ever seen it has a very high precedence.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0085.

Code: Select all
v16.80.0005 - 2016-05-24 20:10
    + Paste and Go: Now paths with *forward* slashes are supported as well.
    + SC obfuscate: Now also the Catalog is obfuscated.
    * Folder Size Caching: From now on also folders cached as "0 bytes" will
      always be re-calculated when showing the folder sizes.
    * Folder Size Caching: Additionally any subfolders containing more than
      *256* items (recursively) are auto-added to the cache. Was *100* items
      before.
    * Toolbar | Back, Forward, Recent Locations: Now paths are shown unslashed
      in the dropdown menu.
    - Removed this little know trick from v9.40.0102 - 2010-08-13 17:32:
        Now you can force opening a folder in the other pane (inactive
        pane) by holding Ctrl+Shift while triggering the open.

v16.80.0004 - 2016-05-23 20:10
  +++ Custom Copy: Now the collision prompt features an extra button for
      "Overwrite". Just like the "Skip" button you can use it for quick one-time
      actions without changing the preset of the action dropdown (which is
      triggered by the "OK" button).
      So you now have two fixed buttons for the most common actions, "Overwrite"
      and "Skip", and soft button ("OK") whose function you can modify via the
      dropdown.
      The whole dialog has been redesigned somewhat to bring all elements into a
      smooth constellation.
    * Folder Size Caching: From now on folders cached as "Empty" will always be
      re-calculated when showing the folder sizes. If they are still empty the
      costs for this are minimal, and if they are not empty anymore it's really
      good to know. So when you see "Empty" you can pretty much rely on it since
      the information is freshly harvested.
    * Folder Size Caching: From now when freshly calculating a folder size not
      only this folder's size but also the sizes of its direct child folders are
      auto-added to the cache. This allows for quickly going down to the next
      level, and propagates fresh values one level down when refreshing folder
      sizes.
      Additionally any subfolders containing more than 100 items (recursively)
      are auto-added to the cache.
    % Network: Deleting single folders in network locations should be faster
      now.
    % More new icons for some dialogs.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0084.

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

    % New icons for some dialogs.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0083.
    * Floating Preview: Now when the previewed file is deleted and no other file
      is immediately selected the FP is completely cleared. Before, the preview
      of the deleted file was still shown (which was obviously confusing).
    ! Floating Preview: The FP window gained undesired focus (foregrounding)
      after deleting a previewed file in list. Fixed.

v16.80.0001 - 2016-05-20 18:54
    + SC folderreport enhanced: New named argument for parameter "type":
        type:
          tcsv: Tree of items (folders and files) with basic data
                in CSV format: Raw Bytes;Modified Date[;Version]
                This type does not support a template.
      Note:
        This type generates a report similar to "treeitems" but is much faster
        since it does not support a custom template (which costs a lot of extra
        flops).
      Example:
        text folderreport("tcsv", "r", , "r");
      Output Example:
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        E:\Test\Photos
        ... Daido Moriyama;<DIR>;13.05.2016 12:18:53
            ... 8-copie11.jpg;207742;16.02.2016 21:19:35

        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    % SC folderreport: Type "treeitems" got much faster, notable especially on
      large reports.
    % Report "Tree Structure Only" got much faster, notable especially on large
      reports.
    * Info Panel | Report: Renamed "Tree structure only" to "Tree structure".
  *** Info Panel | Report | Tree structure: Experimentally changed the output to
      include files and basic file data. The report now is the same as would be
      generated by folderreport("tcsv").
    * Report: Modified the layout of tree-shaped reports for better readability.
    * Info Panel | Raw View: Replaced substitution character (for non-displayed
      low ASCII chars) "mid dot" character by normal dot. The mid dot is no good
      on some code pages, and it does not play easily with HTML and other ASCII
      contexts.
    * Info Panel | Raw View: Now many more lower ASCII (< ord 32) are shown
      unsubstituted.
    ! File | Properties (Alt+Enter): Did not work on special folders in the
      Tree, e.g. "Donald\Pictures". Fixed.
    ! File | Properties (Alt+Enter): Did not work on "C:\Users\<username>" and
      worked incorrectly on "C:\Users\<username>\Desktop". Fixed.
