XYplorer 11.60 has been released on 10-Sep-2012. Here's a quick introduction to the main new features:
XYplorer's Duplicate File Finder is implemented as filter Dupes in the Find Files tab. If the filter is active then only duplicate files are listed in the search results, i.e. files that have one or more duplicates in the searched location(s). What counts as a "duplicate" can be defined in the Dupes tab: It's either match by Name, or Date (modified), or Size, or Content, or any combination of these.
For Content you can further define the method of comparison: The choices go from MD5 (fastest but least reliable) via SHA-1, SHA-256, SHA-512, to Byte-to-byte (slow but most reliable). Generally, SHA-1 is thought to be reliable enough for real world usage and hence it is also the factory default.
Tick the Invert option to find all singular/unique files; quite useful when comparing two folders that should be in sync.
The results list of a dupes search features a special column "Dupes" where each group of dupes is referred to by a unique ID starting from number 1 for the first group detected. Sorting the list by this column will bring the duplicate files that belong together into adjacent order. A dupes search results list is always initialized to be sorted by the Dupes column. If sorted by Dupes, the list is internally set to grid style "Highlighted Groups", and the Dupes column is additionally highlighted with a color depending on the match criteria:
With combined match criteria the "highest" criterion determines the color:
Tree Path Tracing™ is a revolutionary new Tree style you won't find anywhere else. Turn it on in menu Tools | Customize Tree | Tree Path Tracing to highlight the current path in the Tree. It's a visual aid to always know your place in the folder tree, without even consciously looking at the tree. The highlight color can be customized in Configuration | Colors & Styles | Tree Path Tracing. Note that there is also a toolbar button (pictured here on the left) to quickly toggle it on and off. The button's right-click menu offers all tree styles.
Here is a graphic example showing the efficiency of this feature:
Whereas previous versions of XYplorer only showed the embedded thumbnails of PSD files, now a real full size preview is supported, including full size Mouse Down Blow Up.
Note that a Codec for PSD, e.g. the FastPictureViewer Codec Pack, needs to be installed on the system (it is not included in XYplorer).
Simply press L for "Rotate Left" and R for "Rotate Right" to rotate the preview in 90° steps. Of course, the original image itself is not modified.
Note that pixel-exact Mouse Down Blow Up works just fine in rotated previews.

XYplorer 11.60.0200 has been released on 24-Sep-2012. Here's a quick introduction to the main new features:
Usage: Now you can use Find Files to identify folders by their contents (e.g. by the name, type, size or contents of the files within those folders), and then copy those folders for further processing. A very useful enhancement. E.g., you can find all folders that contain files containing the word "Las Vegas".Further Remarks:
