Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v9.60.0105 - 2010-10-23 14:28
    + Admin Settings: Added another thing to hide:
        Menu User | Manage Commands... (8)
      Here's an overview over the current values:
        eAPHide_User_ManageUDC = 8
        eAPHide_Tools_Configuration = 16
        eAPHide_Tools_OpenConfigFile = 32
        eAPHide_Help_XYOnTheWeb = 64
        eAPHide_Help_UpdateRegDetails = 128
        eAPHide_Help_About_URLs = 256
    * Admin Settings: Changed the filename from "Config.ini" to
      "Admin.ini", and the key from "Hide" to "Profile".
    * Address Bar and Favorites: From now on, icons for items on network
      locations (UNC and mapped) are shown in their generic form and are
      not extracted from the items.
      Advantage: This avoids delays when network locations are not
      available. Disadvantage: The existence of an icon does imply the
      existence of the item anymore.
      Note that before, icons for items on UNC paths were not shown at
      all in Address Bar and Favorites, so the real difference is for
      icons for items on mapped drives.
    * Updated the file "CatalogDefault.dat", which is part of the
      download package.

To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) Portable Package.
Note that BETA versions are work in progress and might contain fresh bugs. You have been warned.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v9.60.0106 - 2010-10-24 22:01
    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name:   catalogload
      Action: Loads a Catalog file.
      Syntax: catalogload file, [switches=sp]
        file:     The Catalog file to load.
                  Can be relative to app data path and portable.
                  If empty the default Catalog (<xydata>\catalog.dat) is
                  (re)loaded.
        switches (can be concatenated in any order):
          s: Save any changes in the current Catalog.
          p: Make [file] the permanent Catalog, i.e. load this Catalog
             on next app start.
          n: Create a new empty Catalog named [file].
          [missing]: Defaults to "sp".
      Examples:
        //save the current Catalog, load <xydata>\catalog2.dat,
        //and make it the new permanent Catalog
        ::catalogload "catalog2.dat";
        //do not save the current Catalog, load <xydata>\catalog2.dat,
        //do no make it permanent
        ::catalogload "catalog2.dat", "";
        //save the current Catalog, create a new empty Catalog named
        //catalognew.dat in <xydata>, and make it the new permanent
        //Catalog
        ::catalogload "catalognew.dat", "spn";
        //discard the current Catalog and reload the default Catalog
        //<xydata>\catalog.dat, and make it permanent
        ::catalogload , "p";
      Remarks:
      - If your current and permanent catalog is the default
        "<xydata>\catalog.dat" (which is the factory default situation),
        then this line is equivalent to a "revert to saved" because it
        simply reloads the Catalog from file without saving any changes
        first:
        ::catalogload , "";
      - The ability to load Catalogs on-the-fly adds a new dimension to
        the Catalog feature. It will soon be available through the UI as
        well.

To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) Portable Package.

Code: Select all
v9.60.0107 - 2010-10-25 15:33
  +++ Catalog: Added Switch-Catalog-On-The-Fly. Finally you can manage
      any number of Catalog resources right from the GUI. You find the
      usual commands in the right-click menu of any Catalog Category and
      of an empty Catalog:
      - "New": Create a new empty Catalog. The initial file name
        defaults to "<xydata>\NewCatalog[##].dat", where [##] is a
        number suffix that makes it a unique name.
        You are prompted to save any changes if the current Catalog is
        dirty.
      - "Open...": Open an existing Catalog file, after saving any
        changes in the current Catalog. If you choose a filename that
        does not exist, a new empty Catalog of that name is created.
        You are prompted to save any changes if the current Catalog is
        dirty.
      - "Revert to Saved": Reload the current Catalog from file without
        saving any changes first.
      - "Save": Save the current Catalog.
      - "Save As...": Save the current Catalog under a new name.
      - "Refresh All Icons": Refresh all Catalog Icons.
      - Additionally you get 8 MRU Catalogs at the bottom of the submenu.
      Note that any new or opened Catalog will remembered as the new
      permanent Catalog between sessions.
      Note that the last and the MRU Catalogs are stored in a portable
      manner (relative to app data path).
    + List Management: Added item "Recent Catalogs...".

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v9.60.0109 - 2010-10-26 12:11
    + Catalog: Added another command to the Catalog submenu:
      - "Save Copy As...": Save a copy of the current Catalog under a
        new name, without making this the current Catalog. Useful for
        making quick backups.
    * Catalog submenu | Open...: Now the default filter is set to
      "cat*.dat". If you name your Catalogs so that they match
      "cat*.dat" (which is hereby officially recommended), e.g.
      "CatWork.dat" or "CatalogWork.dat", you will get them neatly
      listed by this default filter.
    * Catalog submenu | New: The initial filename now defaults to
      "<xydata>\CatalogNew[##].dat" (instead of NewCatalog[##].dat).
    + Find Files | Contents: Added option "Whole words". If checked the
      given string will match only whole words in the scanned file, not
      parts of words.
      Note that the "Whole words" option does not play with the
      "Wildcards" option. If "Wildcards" is checked and the string
      actually contains wildcards, the "Whole words" option is
      internally ignored.
    ! Find Files | Name & Location: The "Inverted" option was honored
      even if the whole Name filter was OFF. Fixed.
    * Recent Locations: Whether these data are remembered between
      sessions is now controlled by Configuration | Startup & Exit |
      Don't save history. Before, it was controlled by "Don't save most-
      recently-used lists".
    ! Startup: When the app was closed on a Find tab and a startpath was
      passed on next startup (using e.g. command line) the app openend
      on a mix between a normal and a Find tab. Fixed.

Code: Select all
v9.60.0110 - 2010-10-27 11:37
    + Toolbar | Catalog: New context menu with "Open..." and MRU list.
    * The following tweak (added v7.60.0022 - 2008-09-21 21:48) is now
      set to 1 by factory default (note that it's not automatically done
      on upgrading!):
        [Settings]
        ScriptSmartDetect=1
      Most one-line scripts entered into the Address Bar (and many other
      location ports) are then correctly detected as scripts without the
      need for prefixing "::". Examples:
        msg "Hi!";
        msg "Hi!"; //message
      The crucial thing is the trailing ; (appended comments allowed).
    + Configuration | Find Files | Show search results in: Added another
      option, ["Search results" tab (unlocked)]. It's the same as the
      factory default ["Search results" tab (locked)], but -- you
      guessed it -- the tab is not auto-locked.
    + Find Files | Contents: Now it supports overlong filenames (> 260
      chars).
    * Menu View: Renamed "Toggle No/Last Visual Filter" to "Toggle
      Visual Filter".
    ! A crash could happen when closing a find tab by X button while the
      find was still running. Fixed.
    ! Admin Settings: A profile with eAPHide_User_ManageUDC (8) but no
      UDCs defined in udc.dat lead to a startup error. Fixed. From now
      on the "Manage Commands..." item is not hidden but disabled.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v9.60.0111 - 2010-10-27 16:25
    * SC listfolder: Slightly revised the logic of the "flags" argument
      (introduced in v9.60.0104):
        flags: (binary field)
          0: return folders and files with full paths [default]
          1: NoFolders (= return only files)
          2: NoFiles (= return only folders)
          4: NoPaths (= return the filenames without paths)
      This change only affects the value 3, which now returns nothing
      (NoFolders and NoFiles). Not useful but logically consistent. ;)
      Examples:
        ::inputselect("Test 0", listfolder(%windir%, "s*", 0)); //all
        ::inputselect("Test 1", listfolder(%windir%, "s*", 1)); //files
        ::inputselect("Test 2", listfolder(%windir%, "s*", 2)); //folders
        ::inputselect("Test 3", listfolder(%windir%, "s*", 3)); //nothing
    + SC inputselect enhanced: The "style" argument got a new value 4
      that you can use the solve the ambiguity between "no data" and
      "empty item".
        style:      1 = show file system icons for the items (= default)
                    2 = show checkboxes
                        prefix items with "+" to pre-check them
                    4 = show empty list if there is only one empty item
      Examples:
        // shows one empty item
        ::inputselect("Test 3",  listfolder(%windir%, "s*", 3), , 1);
        // shows empty list
        ::inputselect("Test 3",  listfolder(%windir%, "s*", 3), , 5);
    ! Recycle Bin: Was auto-refreshed too often under Win7. Fixed.

        .../*comment1*//*comment2*/...
        .../*comment1*/,/*comment2*/...
      were not correctly parsed. Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v9.60.0114 - 2010-10-29 11:04
  +++ Configuration | Color Filters: Added color filters by file size.
      You now can, for example, color all empty files in a certain way,
      or all files bigger than a certain size. A useful thing if you ask
      me.
      General syntax:
        /size:n       = exact size
        /size:<n      = smaller than n
        /size:>n      = bigger than n
        /size:<=n     = n or smaller
        /size:>=n     = n or bigger
        /size:min-max = from min to max (both inclusive)
        /size:min-    = min or bigger  (same as >=n)
        /size:-max    = max or smaller  (same as <=n)
      The size has to be given in raw bytes (not "2MB" or similar).
      A trailing ";" is optional. Like with all color filters, ";" can
      also be used to concatenate patterns assigned to the same colors.
      Examples:
        /size:0
        /size:<500
        /size:<=1000
        /size:3000-5000;/size:8000-9000;
        /size:>1000000;
        /size:500000-;
      Note that these filters work only for files (not for folders) and
      only in the List (not in the Tree).
    + Configuration | Color Filters | New: Now you can hold CTRL to
      duplicate current item.
    + Menu Scripting | Run Script: The script is now remembered between
      sessions. Also the wrapped state of the Run Script text box is
      remembered.
    * Color Filters in Details View: From now on, if you define a back
      color for a filter, then both text color and back color are
      applied only to the Name column. Before, the text color (but not
      the back color) was applied to all columns, which made it tricky
      to use bright-on-dark color schemes because bright would not be
      readable on the usually white list background. Now you can define
      a color filter white-on-black, nice!
    ! Scripting: HereDoc constructs used as interior arguments lead to
      parsing trouble. Fixed.
    ! Thumbnails: Thumbnails previewed by the shell (e.g. Videos or Word
      documents) were not created for files located directly on a drive
      root. Fixed.

v9.60.0115 - 2010-10-29 15:37
    + Configuration | Color Filters: Now the size-based filters support
      human-friendly size formats, for example:
        /size:2kb
        /size:>=2.5 MB
        /size: 5.75 MB - 6 TB
      Recognized units are KB, MB, GB, TB, PB, and B (B is optional for
      bytes). As you see, fractional values are okay, case does not
      matter, and you can throw in spaces as you like.

    + CKS | Miscellaneous | Focus: Added command "Focus First Selected
      Item" (#1048). In the List, moves the focus to the first selected
      item from top, and moves it into view if necessary. Also focuses
      the list if necessary. If no item is selected the focused item is
      moved into view. If the focused item is selected but not current
      item (not on Info Panel) it is made current item.
    * Menu Edit | Select | Select Items...: Now the first selected item
      from top is focused and moved into view.
