Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

Download: http://www.xyplorer.com/download.php

Code: Select all
v16.70.0000 - 2016-05-02 21:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ What's on the pizza? A new toolbar button lets you quickly toggle the
      display of folder sizes.
  +++ View and Edit the Clipboard. A new toolbar button serves as a quick and
      basic clipboard viewer. Simply hover it to show any text or file items
      currently in the clipboard. Click it to edit those clipboard contents.
  +++ Paste and Go. Now you can paste a file or folder path directly into the
      tree or the list and XYplorer will go to it right away.
  +++ Color Filters. Now you can define whether a filter is applied to the Tree,
      or to the List, or to both, for each filter individually.
  +++ Rename Special. Now it's also supported in the folder tree.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v16.60.0306 - 2016-04-28 12:45
    + Color Filters: Added per-filter Control Selectors. They let you define
      whether a filter is applied to the Tree, or to the List, or to both, for
      each filter individually.

        Control Selector        Function
        ------------------------------------------------------
        T: or t:                Limit color filter to the Tree
        L: or l:                Limit color filter to the List
        else                    No limits
     
      The Control Selectors are prefixed to the filter definition (but come
      after any caption). For example:
        T:ageM: <= 24 h
        L:ageM: <= 24 h
        "Modified Today" T:ageM: d
      Of course, Control Selectors are also supported in SC colorfilter():
        colorfilter('"Mod Today (Tree)" T:ageM: d>FFFFFF,70B926');  //Tree only
        colorfilter('"Mod Today (List)" L:ageM: d>FFFFFF,70B926');  //List only
      Remarks:
      - This also allows you to color code the same criteria differently in Tree
        and List (whatever that would be good for).
      - In case of normal (non-instant) Color Filters the control selectors are
        limited by the global settings "Apply color filters to the List" and
        "Apply color filters to the Tree": If any of them is disabled, then a
        Control Selector cannot overwrite this.
    ! Color Filters: The order of AND-ed filters could make a difference in the
      Tree if at least one of the filters was not applicable to the tree. Fixed.
    ! Toolbar | Toggle Instant Color Filters: The tooltip displayed a cropped
      filter definition if it contained the ">" character. Fixed.
    * Portable File Associations: LNKs are now passed unresolved, i.e. as *.lnk,
      to the associated applications or scripts.
      Notes:
      - This had already be done once in v14.70.0012 - 2014-12-21 19:42, but
        later has been changed for various, but ultimately wrong reasons.
        I now think PFA is a stronger feature when it's not LNK-smart.
      - Actually LNKs have always been passed unresolved to PFA on opening a
        file by Enter or Double-Click. So there also was a glaring
        inconsistency. Fixed now.
    * Restyled the Help file a little.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v16.60.0304 - 2016-04-27 16:11
    + Configuration | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Type Ahead Find | Paste and find:
      Now it also supports "Paste and Go" (as already available in the context
      menu of the Breadcrumb Bars): If the pasted string is a path then XY will
      go to it. Can also be a full path filename. In that case the file will be
      focused and selected in the list. Cool enhancement!
    + Paste and Go: Now you can also paste a path string into the *Tree* and XY
      will go to it.
    + SC get("item") enhanced: Added an optional parameter to pass the position
      of the item in the list (the first position is "1"). If missing the
      focused item is returned.
      Syntax: get("Item", [pane=a], [pos])
      Examples:
        echo get("item", , 4); //item at position 4
      Also works as variable:
        echo <get item  4>; //note the 2 spaces! the "pane" parameter is missing
    * Edit | Paste Special | Edit Files in Clipboard...: Renamed it to "Edit
      Clipboard..." and enhanced the functionality. Now it can show and edit not
      only files in clipboard, but also text!
    * Toolbar: The same enhancement applies to the same-named toolbar button.
    + Toolbar | Edit Clipboard: The button tooltip now serves as a quick and
      basic clipboard viewer. It shows text and file items contained in the
      clipboard (cropped after 2048 characters, or after 32 lines, whatever
      comes sooner).
    % Toolbar: Flatter look for pressed buttons.
    ! History: A tab could lose its back history under certain conditions if
      "History per tab" was enabled. Fixed.

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

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v16.60.0303 - 2016-04-25 18:38
    + Toolbar: Added button "Show Folder Sizes". It functionally corresponds to
      "Tools | Customize List | Show Folder Sizes", i.e. it toggles the "Show
      Folder Sizes" list style (not to confuse with the global setting
      "Configuration | Tree and List | List | Show folder sizes").
      Note that when toggling it off any running folder size calculation is
      aborted immediately (like pressing ESC) and any already shown folder sizes
      are hidden in the list (to just stop calculation without hiding already
      shown folder sizes press ESC).
      The wonderful pizza slice icon has been designed by (and legally bought
      from) Sensible World (http://symbolicons.com/).
      Why Pizza??? Well, it's how I think: When you say folder size I think
      pizza slice. No need to say that the little olives are the files. Welcome
      to my brain.
    * Preview Pane: Now when the Preview Pane is toggled on and there is no
      current item (hint: the Status Bar does not show the name of an item) then
      the focused and selected list item (if any) is automatically made the
      current item, and hence previewed in the Preview Pane.
    * List: From now on multiple selected files are dragged in their current
      order, independent of which of them has the current focus.
    ! Visual Filters: Since v13.20.0011 - 2013-11-09 13:42 the unary NOT
      operator "!" can also be used for individual non-first operands in a
      Boolean expression.
      However, this never worked correctly for OR-ed non-first operands!
        cat and !dog  //cat and not dog -- worked
        cat;!dog      //cat or not dog  -- DID NOT WORK!
      Fixed.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.75.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.75.lng is uploaded.

      location to the current paths of both panes.

    + File | Rename Special: Experimentally, the submenu and all its commands
      are now also available when the focus is on the Tree. So you can use the
      various rename commands (via menu File, or via keyboard shortcuts) on a
      tree folder without the need to first show that folder in the list.
      Smoother flow.
    + Tweak to limit the scope of "Tools | Customize List | Hide Extensions" to
      just the shortcuts (*.lnk, *.url, *.pif):
        ListHideExtShortcutsOnly=1
    ! Copying Outlook attachements did not work anymore since v16.60.0002 -
      2016-04-14 22:04. Fixed.
    ! Preview Pane: On custom DPI settings switching from a text to an image
