XYplorer 9.70 has been released on 03-Nov-2010. Here's a quick introduction to the main new features:
You (resp. your administrator) simply place a file "Admin.ini" in XYplorer's application path. The contents of this file will control the layout and functionality of the application in a way that a user without admin rights cannot influence. XYplorer will read this file at startup but never write to it.
For example, to hide and disable the Check for Updates feature, you simply enter this into Admin.ini:
For example, to additionally hide and disable any possibility to change the configuration, you simply enter this into Admin.ini:
Further possibilities, and the meaning of those numbers, are shown in the Help file.
At the bottom of the submenu you find the most recently used Catalogs.
The most recently used Catalogs are also found in the context menu of the Catalog toolbar button. They can be managed via menu Tools | List Management | Recent Catalogs.
By the way, if you are new to XYplorer, here is an example of a Catalog (click to see it in context):

The syntax offers a lot of intuitive possibilities, here are some examples:
/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)
/size: 0 = size 0 bytes (empty file) /size: 1000 = size 1000 bytes /size: < 10 = smaller than 10 bytes /size: > 1 MB = bigger than 1 MB /size: >= 1.5 GB = 1.5 GB or bigger /size: 1KB - 20KB = from 1 KB to 20 KB (both incl.)
For instance, here you see how a filter matching all empty files (/size:0) and a couple of other size filters are defined in Configuration | Color Filters:
And here you see the above filter in action, coloring all empty files and making them immediately stand out:
