XYplorer 9.30 has been released on 15-Jul-2010. Here's a quick introduction to the main new features:
To enable this feature tick Configuration | General | Remember state of tree:
To enable this feature tick Configuration | Color Filters | Apply name patterns to files only.
To enable this behavior turn Tools | Configuration | General | Expand tree nodes on single-click ON and Tools | Customize Tree | Rename on slow double-click OFF.
Find the New Files command in menu Edit | New | New Files...
Note that XYplorer native variables, environment variables, and full and relative paths are supported. So you can as well state patterns like these:
MoonLanding\TopSecret\new.txt \MarsLanding\TopSecret\new.txt D:\Testpath\new.txt %username%.txt New <date yyyymmdd>.txt
Find the new toggle here: menu Window | Show Statusbar.
Note that Scripting works only in the Professional Edition. In the Home Edition you can achieve the same by manually editing the INI file.
Note that it's not just PDFs. The same works for any other format whose thumbnails are driven by a shell extension.
A typical use-case would be when dragging items or paths from other apps into XYplorer. It's a kind of "Go to by Drag'n'drop" -- revolutionary and very useful if you ask me.
