:idea: Conc. new thumbnails feature: I recommend you switch on the Cache in Configuration/Thumbs to experience the real overwhelming thumb speed. BTW, it's the only conf option you have for the time being ... work in progress.

  !!! fixed major bug

v3.50.0109 - 20.07.04 13:58
    + Added some smart flexibility to the thumb display: the file list's row
      height will only be increased IF there are any thumbnails in that list.
v3.50.0108 - 19.07.04 14:17
    + Added *.PSD format to image preview. PSD files (Photoshop Documents)
      can include embedded thumbnail previews, and TrackerV3 learned how to
      show them. Of course, *.PSD is now also part of TrackerV3's own thumbnail
      preview.
      Note that with PSD files, you can preview only the embedded thumbnail,
      not the original sized image.
v3.50.0107 - 19.07.04 10:21
    * Moved the "[Show] Thumbnails" menu command to the View/Show Columns
      submenu, because it belongs there. This menu also opens when you right-
      click the column headers.

Code: Select all

    + new feature
    * changed feature
    % improved performance
    ! fixed minor bug
  !!! fixed major bug

v3.50.0111 - 21.07.04 14:55
    + Configuration/Thumbs: Thumbnail width and height is now mildly
      configurable. You can choose between 96 and 72 pixels for each
      dimension. When you work a lot with digital photos, which usually have a
      4:3 proportion, a setting of width=96 and height=72 is perfect for you:
      more visible rows in the file list, and about 25% smaller cache files.
      Note, that the cache files for each of the now 4 possible thumb sizes
      are kept independently of each other: thus you can switch between
      thumbnail sizes in a blink -- with Explorer, you have to reboot Windows
      to do that!
    + Thumbs mode is now remembered between sessions.     
    ! Minor alignment bug when renaming bold tree nodes. Fixed.
    * When trying to jump to a favorite folder that is hidden or in a hidden
      path, and you opted to not show hidden folders, you'll get a message now
      that tells you so.
    Drag'n'Drop Context Menu Tree:
    * Renamed "Create Folder Structure Here" to "Create Branche(s) Here".
    + Added "Create Folder(s) Here": copies all top level folders in the
      dropped packet to the drop target without the contained files. So it's
      the flat version of "Create Branche(s) Here". Very handy feature to quickly
      create some folders by simply drag-dropping them to their birth-place.

v3.50.0117 - 23.07.04 12:07
    * Age units are now correctly pluralized: "1 year", "2 years".
v3.50.0113 - 22.07.04 11:18
    + Thumbs cache got smarter: whenever an image file is updated, the cache
      is immediately updated too. Note: since this gain in smartness involves
      a change in the cache makeup, your previous cache files will all be
      rewritten.
    + While processing thumbs the status bar message now shows
      [thumb number] of [total thumb number].
    * Age now shows seconds as well.

    * changed feature
    % improved performance
    ! fixed minor bug
  !!! fixed major bug

v3.50.0122 - 04.08.04 15:02
    + File Find: now fully supports the wildcard "?" that stands for exactly
      one char. Also any ANDed subpatterns of a logical search phrase can now
      have wildcards * (none or more chars) and ? (exactly one char).
      - *.???:  finds all files with a 3-char extension
      - ????.* or ??????.* and mo*: finds all files with a 4 char title OR (a
        6-char title AND starting with "mo")
  +++ File Find: added Boolean NOT operator, written with the symbol "!"
      directly in front of the pattern:
      - !cat:   finds all files that do not contain the sequence "cat"
      - !cat*:  finds all files that do not start with the sequence "cat"
      - !*cat:  finds all files that do not end with the sequence "cat"
      - !*.???: finds all files that have not a 3-char extension
      Of course, the NOT operator is freely combinable with the OR and AND
      operators, so TrackerV3 now fully supports Boolean search logic.
      - m* and !*.jpg: finds all non-jpg-files that start with "m"
      More examples will be published on the web site...
v3.50.0121 - 04.08.04 10:21
    ! Deleting a folder in tree view: when you answered the confirmation
      dialog with "No", the tree node was yet removed from the tree view
      (although the folder was not deleted in reality). Fixed.

   :) TrackerV3 is now > 1MB.
  +++ Icon preview reloaded: after a complete rewrite of that module you can
      now preview ALL icons contained in an icon resource at one click,
      including 32-bit (RGB with Alpha channel) XP-icons up to 128x128
      pixels. Pretty involved stuff that would not have been possible
      without the superb http://www.vbaccelerator.com by Steve McMahon!
    + Thumbnails can now deal with large 32-bit icons. 
    + Info panel sizing: right-clicking on the horizontal splitter bar now
      switches between maximum and minimum panel height. If the panel is
      currently at an intermediate height it will switch to minimum height.
    * Backup/Backup To...: Before, when you canceled the "Save Backup Log As"
      the whole backup operation was canceled. Now only the logging is skipped
      but the backup is performed.
    ! File Context Menu/Backup To...: when backupping from find results,
      backup did not always create the necessary subfolders in the target
      destination. Fixed.

      Fixed.
    ! Info panel sizing: crashed after left-click after right-click on
      splitter. Fixed.
    * Info panel toggling between min and max size is now triggered by
      keyboard (not by right-mouse anymore).
      Keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+P (think: Control the Panel)

Download the latest TrackerV3 BETA version (v3.50.0141, 12-aug-2004).

Note: Because of some fundamental changes in certain modules I'm very interested to hear from users of Win98 or ME whether the Find Files still works as expected. Let's hear it, folks!

v3.50.0141 - 12.08.04 20:51
    % Find files: due to a massive internal redesign finding files is now
      considerably faster in general, and esp. with complex boolean search
      terms: here the speed is practically doubled!
      There's an extra performance boost for NT/2K/XP machines.
    % Browsing folders as well received a general performance boost.
    ! Find files: too many results issue. When searching for "1" in a folder
      with files with long file names, and you'd see more find results than
      expected. The reason: the character "1" is present in many DOS-file
      names (8.3 style) and those names have been scanned, too. Fixed.
    + Find files: added case-sensitivity. A case-sensitive search for *.JPG
      will not match *.jpg. Note also that case-sensitive searches are
      slightly faster than case-insensitive searches.
    + New wildcard for digits in file names (0-9): "#" stands for one digit,
      for example:
      - *-##.txt: finds all files whose basename ends in a hyphen plus 2 digits.
      - #:        finds all files with at least one digit
    + Added the ability to define charlists in the search term: a group of
      one or more characters  enclosed in brackets ([ ]) can be used to match
      any single character in the filename, for example:
      - [abc]:    finds all files with "a", "b" or "c" in the name.
      - [!abc]:   finds all files without "a", "b" or "c" in the name.
     
      ======================================================================
      Summary of pattern matching special characters in TrackerV3 Find Files
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------
      ?           Any single character.
      *           Zero or more characters.
      #           Any single digit (0-9).
      [charlist]  Any single character in charlist.
      [!charlist] Any single character not in charlist.
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------
      To match the special characters left bracket ([), question mark (?),
      number sign (#), and asterisk (*), enclose them in brackets, eg [#].
      ======================================================================
     
v3.50.0132 - 11.08.04 17:06
    + Display of cluster count now also for shared drives.
    ! An overflow error plus crash could happen under these conditions:
      - working on network shared drives
      - showing folder sizes in the files list
      - files in folder summing up to > 2GB
      Fixed.

    % List view: further massive speed gains for large listings (browse and
      find mode).
    % List view: better display update strategy when listing folder contents
      (browse and find mode). Before, the display was updated depending on the
      number of items. Now, the display update is time-triggered every 250
      msec. So, the faster your computer the less intermediate screen activity
      (aka flicker) while the file list is being filled.

v3.50.0149 - 16.08.04 20:34
  +++ Find Files: added Regular Expressions (RegExp) as an additional way to
      define search patterns. The "normal" pattern syntax and the RegExp syntax
      can not be mixed. To mark a search term as RegExp pattern simply prefix it
      by the character ">" (the "Name" label turns blue to show that the term
      will be interpreted as a RegExp pattern). 
      NOTE: RegExp functions depend on vbscript.dll, which must be (and from
      Win98 onwards usually is) present in the Windows system directory.
      Note also that at the very first RegExp search after starting Windows,
      the initialization of the RegExp object might take a couple of
      seconds. Any subsequent search will be very fast.
      Information on RegExp syntax see "Introduction to Regular Expressions":
      http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us
      /script56/html/reconIntroductionToRegularExpressions.asp   
    * Find Files interface: changed "Named" to "Name", and "Look in" to
      "Location". Just to remind me to update the help file...
    * Info panel jump-sizing (min/max toggling): again, there are new ways
      to do it (hey, it's good for your brain to change your habits once in a
      while):
      New Keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+Numpad+ (Add sign).
      Mouse: Double click the splitter. Works left and right, but left is the
      recommended way.
    + Keyboard shortcut Ctrl+P is reassigned to what it was before:
      Ctrl+P: Copy Filename with Path to Clipboard
              (works only if item is selected in ListView)

      list item is focused it's the current tree path.

v3.60.0004 - 23.08.04 15:42
    + Preview: added QuickTime Movie Files (MOV) to preview.
      NOTE: To preview QuickTime Movie format, QuickTime must be installed.
    + Preview: added Ogg Vorbis Sound Files (OGG) to preview.
      Ogg Vorbis (http://www.vorbis.com/) is an up-and-coming audio codec.
      It provides better sound quality than mp3s, with a smaller file size,
      and is completely patent-free and open-source.
      More infos: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vorbis
      Testfiles: http://www.xiph.org/ogg/vorbis/listen.html   
      NOTE: To preview Ogg Vorbis format, Ogg DirectShow filters must be
      installed! Download the Ogg DirectShow filters from Tobias at
      http://tobias.everwicked.com/oggds.htm and run OggDS0995.exe (can be
      uninstalled via Control Panel).
v3.60.0003 - 22.08.04 11:07
    ! MP3 Info Tips: with "Show MP3 Info Tips" (Configuration/File Info
      Tips) checked, when hovering a bad mp3-file (resulting in the message
      "Audio: Error reading file...") shorter than 127 bytes, that file was
      subsequently locked from move and delete operations. Fixed.
v3.60.0001 - 21.08.04 15:23
    ! Error message "[Filename] is currently hidden." appeared erroneously since
      one month when jumping to a favorite folder under a special path. Fixed.
    + Thumbs: in thumbnails mode and with caching enabled, when you rename
      the current folder in tree the cache is now clever enough to simply
      adjust to the new name. Before, all thumbs would have been regenerated.
