XYplorer 11.40 has been released on 25-Jun-2012. Here's a quick introduction to the main new features:
The so-called Extended Properties are all those file properties that you can see in File Info Tips when hovering a file. You can find a complete list of them together with their numeric indices under "Configuration | File Info Tips | Show custom file info tips". Note that the correct indices vary with the Windows version and with your system configuration. Win7 has more than 250 properties per file (of course, not all are used by all file types).
Note that this is not an extended property but an XYplorer special property of which there exists a bunch.
To hide the captions simply untick Configuration | Thumbnails | Show caption.
Ever wanted to get hold of the extended properties that are shown to you in the volatile File Info Tips when hovering a file? Now you can! The new Metadata command (Shift+Enter) shows you exactly the same data in a handy text box. Note that also a toolbar button for this has been added.
To enable this feature tick Configuration | General | Show sort headers in all views.
The command Reverse Order is found near the bottom of menu View | Sort By. You can assign a keyboard shortcut to it using menu Tools | Customize Keyboard Shortcuts.
