Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v20.40.0018 - 2019-09-27 13:39
    + Configuration | Information | Tags | Toggle tags by column click: Added 3 
      checkboxes to let you control this setting individually for the Label, 
      Tags, and Comment column.
    * Configuration | Information | Tags | Toggle tags by column click: On Full 
      Row Select there was a conflict about how to interpret a click, a 
      mousedown, and a mouse drag on those tag columns when "Toggle tags by 
      column click" was ON.
      Solution: From now on when the clicked item is already selected then 
      "Toggle tags by column click" is ignored on Full Row Select.
    * Configuration | Information | Tags | Toggle tags by column click: On Full 
      Row Select "Toggle tags by column click" is ignored when there is no last 
      Label, Tag, or Comment existing.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0148.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

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.

    * Mouse Down Blow Up: Right-Click MDBU preview (staying up) (incl. Quick 
      Audio Preview) will now come up instantly on the inactive pane (which is 
      activated at the same time). Before, a short click was eaten by the 
      activation and you needed a longer mousedown.
      You now can as well instantly switch between right-click stay-up MDBU 
      image previews across both panes. Was not possible before.

v20.40.0021 - 2019-09-30 19:23
    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | Colors: Added the option "Preserve 
      custom colors". Tick it to show any custom tab colors even when the tab is 
      selected and "Match selected tab with breadcrumb bar" is enabled.
      The factory default is off so the default situation is back to what was 
      before v20.30.0012 - 2019-08-31 13:39.
      Note: This raises the lost tweak TabMatchSelectedWithCrumbPrio to UI (but 
      logically reversed).
    ! Scripting | Step Dialog | Variable on Stack Dialog: The Variables list was 
      all black in Light Mode. Fixed.

    ! Audio Preview: The current time position was wrong with some files. Fixed.
      Note that there is still an issue with such files: When you click the 
      progress bar to jump to a new position the file will not play from the 
      exact position but somewhat off.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v20.40.0023 - 2019-10-02 17:52
  +++ Visual Filters: Now supports "prop:" as selector for properties. Syntax 
      identical to Color Filters. Here are some examples:
      
      Filter                                Match all files with
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      prop:dimensions:638 x *               1500 pixels width
      prop:System.Comment:love              system comment "love"
      prop:#ShortcutTarget:?*               a non-empty shortcut target
      prop:#mp3.composer:*Haydn*            Haydn in the MP3 composer tag
      prop:#mp3.title:no*                   an MP3 title starting with "no"
      prop:#Image.Fuji.FilmMode:Classic*    Film Simulation "Classic"
      prop:#AspectRatio: 16:9               an aspect ratio of 16:9
      prop:#Hash.MD5:1092b0ce7d106d3d72e737c66ea20fa1   this MD5 hash
      prop:imagex: > 1500                   a width larger 1500 pixels
      prop:#HardLinks: > 1                  more than one hardlink
      prop:CameraModel:*Canon*              "Canon" in the camera model name
      prop:fileversion:20.40*               file version number 20.40*

  +++ Visual Filters: Now supports "len:" and "lent:" as selectors for filename 
      length (with full path) and file title length (name without path). 
      The syntax is identical to the one of the "size:" selector, so you 
      can use all sorts of numerical comparison operators to define 
      limits and ranges.
      Examples:
        len: > 260    = match all files with a path/name longer than 260 characters
        lent: <= 12   = match all files with a name with 12 or fewer characters
    * Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | 64-bit Windows | Use 64-bit 
      IFilters:
      - Now if the 64-bit IFilter returns nothing then the 32-bit IFilter is 
        tried as a fallback strategy.
      - Now if the 32-bit IFilter returns nothing then the 64-bit IFilter (if on 
        64-bit Windows) is tried as a fallback strategy.
    ! Tabs: After drag-and-drop the mouse could be captured by the tab bar even 
      if XYplorer was not the foreground window. Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v20.40.0026 - 2019-10-05 21:55
    + CKS | Miscellaneous | Focus Functions: Added command "Focus Next Selected 
      Item" (#1064). In the List, moves the focus to the next selected item from 
      here, and moves it into view if necessary. All selections are kept.
      Also focuses the list if necessary. If no item is selected the focused 
      item is moved into view. If the focused item is selected but not current 
      item (not on Info Panel) it is made current item.
    + CKS | Miscellaneous | Focus Functions: Added command "Focus Previous Selected 
      Item" (#1065). In the List, moves the focus to the previous selected item from 
      here, and moves it into view if necessary. All selections are kept.
      See above for the rest.
    * SC selfilter enhanced: Now the first selected item can be automatically 
      focused and scrolled into view.
      Syntax: selfilter [pattern], [type (f|d)], [column], [add], [flags]
        flags: (bit field)
          1 = Focus the first selected item and scroll it into view.
      Example:
        selfilter "*.jpg", 4:=1;
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0149.

v20.40.0027 - 2019-10-06 11:49
    * Media Preview: Last time the Audio Preview was revisited in v8.90.0018 - 
      2010-03-26 11:58, and some things had stopped working at some point or 
      were poorly documented.
      Here are the revised Keyboard and Mouse tricks, including a fix for 
      sub-looping that just did not work anymore as it should have.
      Keyboard shortcuts:
        Space bar               Start/Pause playing.
        Shift+Space bar         Go to beginning and stop.  
        * NOTE: Only works if file list has the focus.
      Mouse on the progress bar:
      - Go to:
        Left Mouse Down         Go to mouse position.
        Right Mouse Down        Start/Pause playing.
        Shift+Left Mouse Down   Go to beginning.
        Shift+Right Mouse Down  Go to beginning and stop.
      - Sub-Looping:
        Ctrl+Left Mouse Down    Set start of sub-loop.
        Ctrl+Right Mouse Down   Set end of sub-loop.
        Ctrl+Alt+Mouse Down     Reset sub-loop.
        * NOTE: Sub-Looping needs "Configuration | Preview | Preview | 
          Audio/Video preview" set to "Play again".
    * Media Preview: For a while now we have keyboard-driven backward and 
      forward. Works in paused and running mode, on audio and video.
      Well, the values are from v7.90.0017 - 2008-12-21 22:04 and I now think they 
      are too small, so I made them larger (that 5 sec value is copied from 
      YouTube) and also added the CTRL key for more fine-grained control:
      Now:
          Left:         5 sec backward
          Right:        5 sec forward
          Shift+Left:   30 sec backward
          Shift+Right:  30 sec forward
          Ctrl+Left:    1 sec backward (Video: Frame step backward)
          Ctrl+Right:   1 sec forward  (Video: Frame step forward)
      Before:
          Left:   Frame step backward   (Audio: 100 msec backward)
          Right:  Frame step forward    (Audio: 100 msec forward)
          Shift+Left:   1 sec backward
          Shift+Right:  1 sec forward
    ! MLS: The language file download stopped working with recent Win10 updates. 
      Fixed.

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

Download: https://www.xyplorer.com/download.php

Code: Select all

v20.50.0000 - 2019-10-08 18:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Filter By Properties. Now you can filter the file list by each of the 
      hundreds of available item properties. E.g. you can show only those photos 
      with a certain aspect ratio, or only those MP3s from a certain artist.
  +++ Filter By Lengths. Now you can filter the file list by the item name 
      lengths. E.g. you can show only those items with 12 or less characters in 
      the name, or only items longer than 259 characters.
  +++ Focus Next Selected Item. Now you can assign a keyboard shortcut of your 
      choice to each of two new commands that move the focus to the next or 
      previous selected item. Quite useful to quickly browse through the 
      currently selected items while giving the mouse a rest.
  +++ Full Name Column Select. Having a hard time hitting the name of a short 
      named file? Now you have the option to use the full width of the name 
      column as click target. Should increase your hits.
  +++ Shuffle Your Files. There is a new dice shaped button on the toolbar. If 
      you are feeling lucky and bored at the same time you can use it to shuffle 
      your image, sound, or video collections.
  +++ Fat Recent Location Pin. Now the current path pin is drawn fatter than the 
      others. So you know where you are at a glance.
  +++ Quick MIDI Preview. Now the Quick Audio Preview supports MIDI files.
  +++ Set Extension. Now the dialog has a Most Recently Used (MRU) list.
  +++ Flexible Size Format. This format has been improved to take even less 
      horizontal space in the Size column.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of The Sweet.

Code: Select all

v20.50.0001 - 2019-10-09 19:03
    + Find Files and Quick Search: Experimentally added support for Generic File 
      Types as name pattern.
      Examples:
        {:Video}
        NOT {:Video}
        :{:Image} AND prop:#AspectRatio: 16:9
    * SC editconf: Now the filter box is focused when the dialog is opened.
    * Help | List All Commands...: Now any previous filter is preselected in 
      the filter box. Makes it easier to type a new one.
    % Quick Search: Now the "/p" switch internally implies "/limitperdir=1".
    ! Quick Search: A pattern like "/p /types={:Video}" was wrongly shown as 
      "//p /types={:Video}" in the Quick Search when editing it. Fixed.
    ! Thumbnails: Removed the fix from v20.40.0029 - 2019-10-07 22:18. It did 
      not really fix it completely, and had some undesired side effects (too 
      early list resort while renaming folders).
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.
