Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v17.50.0203 - 2017-02-03 15:48
    + Browsing Protected Folders: Experimentally the "You don't currently have 
      permission to access this folder." prompt is popped when you get an 
      "Access Denied". After pressing "Continue" the folder will be unlocked. You now
      have to access the folder again in XYplorer to browse its contents.
      NOTE: Pressing "Continue" *permanently* changes your permissions regarding 
      this folder. There is no easy way back to the original state.
    + Live Filter Box: The Up key now focuses the list.
    * Configuration | Tabs | On dbl-click: Now you can also dbl-click an 
      inactive tab. It will be activated and then the selected action is 
      performed on it.
    * Configuration | Tabs | On middle-click: Same as above.
    ! Catalog: Error 9 on this script on an empty Catalog:
        text catalogreport("[{Caption}]",">{Location}");
      Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

:!: Note that BETA versions are work in progress and might contain fresh bugs. You have been warned.
It's a good idea to backup your complete XYplorer settings (menu File | Settings Special | Backup Application Data Folder...)
before running a new BETA version. This will also help in fixing any fresh bugs.

v17.50.0206 - 2017-02-07 12:26
    + Custom Copy | Overwrite Prompt: Now you get the basic audio properties for 
      audio files in the overwrite prompt:
        Bit Rate, Sample Rate, Channels, Length
      Note that these data are only shown for foreground file operations. XYcopy 
      (responsible for handling background file operations) does not have the 
      necessary skills to extract audio properties.
    + List | Large Tiles View: Now the basic audio properties are displayed for 
      audio files: Bit Rate, Sample Rate, Channels, Length.
    + Preview: Experimentally added a tweak to define a custom preview handler 
      for MSG files. The preview handler is identified by its GUID (i.e., you 
      really have to know what you do).
      Example:
        CustomPreviewHandlerMSG={53BEDF0B-4E5B-4183-8DC9-B844344FA104}
      Note that XYplorer wants 32-bit preview handlers.
    % List: Folders containing many files with lots of different long extensions 
      (e.g. hashes) took more time to list than other folders. Not anymore.

    * Persist Visual Filters Across Folders: Before, if this option was enabled 
      a Visual Filter could spread to another tab (either a new tab or an 
      auto-selected default tab) if the current locked tab was to be left. Not 
      anymore.
      Also new tabs that are actively (not implicitly) created will not inherit 
      any Visual Filter from the current tab anymore.
    ! Find Files and Quick Search: Since v17.50.0201 - 2017-01-31 16:46 the 
      following search pattern would crash the app:
        ? /types={:Audio}
      Fixed.

v17.50.0210 - 2017-02-09 20:09
    + Menu View | Tab: Added command "Toggle Live Filter" (Ctrl+Alt+F3). Toggles 
      the Live Filter (No Filter / Last Filter) keeping the input focus where it 
      is. The Live Filter Box is shown if necessary when the filter is toggled 
      on.
      Notes:
        - The last Live Filter is remembered per tab.
        - If there is no last Live Filter the command does nothing.
          Status Bar message: "no filter defined".
        - The functionality is identical to pressing F3 when the focus is in the 
          Live Filter Box.
        - Upgraders will have to actively assign the default keyboard shortcut 
          (Ctrl+Alt+F3), or any other keyboard shortcut.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.85.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.85.lng is uploaded.

      Can be useful in combination with flag 1 (set extensions to lower case).

    ! List: Attempt to fix a little refresh problem (actually a missing refresh 
      once in a while).
      Pretty radical rewrite of the whole list refresh logic that should make 
      refresh more reliable and more economic at the same time: There are less 
      refresh operations than before, but better timed. I always thought this 
      kind of smartness was already built into Windows notifications, but looks 
      like it's not.

    + Scripting got a new function.
      Name:   SearchTemplate
      Action: Save or load Find Files settings to/from a search template.
      Syntax: searchtemplate(name, [mode="load"], [flags=0])
        name: Template name
              - All characters allowed
              - Auto-converted to a valid filename in this location:
                <xydata>\FindTemplates\<name>.ini
              OR: 
              Full path/file name in any location you want.  
        mode: 
              load =  [default] Load template. See flags below.
              save =  Save current Find Files settings to template. Use flags 1 
                      to also save the current search results (if any).
        flags: (bit field)
              1 = cache results (on load this flag logically implies flags 2+4+8)
              2 = use stored location (on load only)
              4 = use exclude folders (on load only)
              8 = run search at once (on load only)
      Remarks:
        - Any existing template of the same name is overwritten without questions.
      Examples:
        - Save current search to "test":
          searchtemplate("test", "save");
        - Save current search to "test", store the search results as well:
          searchtemplate("test", "save", 1);
        - Load search in original location, use exclude folders, run at once:
          searchtemplate("test", , 14);
        - Load cached results (logically implies: use original location, use 
          exclude folders, run at once):
          searchtemplate("test", , 1);
        - Load the stored Find Files settings without running any search:
          searchtemplate("test");
    + Info Panel | Preview: Now the icon preview can be vertically scrolled if 
      needed.

      would be shown complete white on startup and other situations. Fixed.
    ! Action Log, Undo/Redo: Deletions from portable devices, network locations,

      explicitly do a permanent delete (e.g. by holding SHIFT). Nevertheless the 
      Action Log stored these deletions as undoable. Fixed.

    * SC tagitems: Now the itemlist argument suppports CRLF as primary 
      separator. If CRLF is not present, then | is used (if present).
    + SC tagitems: Added a "flags" parameter with currently one value (1) by 
      which you can control what is returned by the function.
      Syntax: tagitems([field], [value], [itemlist], [flags])
        flags: (bit field)
              1 = Return tags of all passed/selected items.
                  Else only or the first/focused item is returned.
                  The separator 
                  ... is | when no itemlist is passed.
                  ... is | when itemlist is separated by |.
                  ... is CRLF when itemlist is separated by CRLF.
      Examples:
        - Return the tags of all selected items, separated by |:
          text tagitems("tags", , , 1);
        - Return the tags of all selected items, separated by |:  
          text tagitems("tags",  , "E:\Test\Boy.jpg|E:\Test\Cow.jpg", 1);
        - Return the tags of all selected items, separated by CRLF:

    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: OpenCommandPrompt
      Action: Opens a command prompt.
      Syntax: opencommandprompt [path], [command], [title], [flags]
        path:     The initial path for the command prompt.
                  Defaults to the current list path.
        command:  The command to execute. Should be prefixed with /k.
        title:    The window title.
                  Defaults to "<path> - Original location of this command prompt"
        flags: (bit field)
                  1 = Elevate (open as admin).
                      Only makes a difference if XYplorer itself is not elevated. Else it is ignored.
                      If it is not ignored then arguments "command" and "title" 
                      are ignored, i.e. they are not supported if the prompt is 
                      being elevated.
    Remarks:
      - This command can be improved later. Takes this as a first draft...
    Examples:
      opencommandprompt;
      opencommandprompt , "/k dir";
      opencommandprompt "C:\";
      opencommandprompt "C:\", 3:=1;  //elevate (using numbered argument syntax)
