      current settings of Find Files in the Info Panel." to the subtitle in Find 
      Files mode.
    + Quick Search Dialog: Made the Tips button keyboard accessible (Ctrl+I).

    * Quick Search Dialog: Had to remove that newbie-friendly subtitle line. The 
      layout was broken in several contexts, and there is no way to make it 
      consistently look good.
      Instead I added that info to the toolbar button tooltip.
    ! Configuration | Colors and Styles | Highlights & Dark Mode | Dark mode | 
      Adaptive colors: If unticked then the text color of "Selections in 
      non-focused controls" (Highlights & Dark Mode) was not correctly applied. 
      Fixed.

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

Direct Download: https://www.xyplorer.com/download/xyplorer_full.zip
Download Page: https://www.xyplorer.com/download.php
Release Notes: https://www.xyplorer.com/release.php

Code: Select all

v21.10.0000 - 2020-09-15 21:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ 64-bit Preview. Some file types, e.g. WebP graphic files (WEBP), 
      SolidWorks files (SLDASM, SLDDRW, SLDPRT) or OpenOffice files (ODP, ODS, 
      ODT), implement their preview not via preview handlers but via thumbnail 
      providers. This has always been supported for 32-bit thumbnail providers. 
      However, in some cases those thumbnail providers are only provided in the 
      64-bit flavor (e.g. SolidWorks). Those are supported now as well, so there 
      are SolidWorks and many other previews now.
  +++ Quick Find Files. The Quick Search dialog now offers a Quick Find Files 
      mode where you can remote control the Find Files tab in the Info Panel 
      (F12). That way you can quickly do a Find Files search without first 
      opening that tab and without having it in the way of the search results 
      listing.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of The Surfrajettes.

v21.10.0001 - 2020-09-17 09:35
    ! 64-bit Preview: Drag-dropping a PDF file that was being 64-bit-previewed by an 
      Adobe preview handler could lead to a "File in Use" error because the 
      preview handler was not yet finished releasing file. Fixed. Now it's made 
      sure that the file is fully released before the file operation starts.
    * Preview64: Updated to 1.0.0.16.
    * Floating Preview: Now PDFs show the extracted text, not the raw text, when 
      PDF is featured in Configuration | Preview | Previewed Formats | 
      Categories | Text Files. That's consistent with the behavior of Preview 
      Tab and Preview Pane.

v21.10.0002 - 2020-09-18 15:43
    + Added tweak to recursively set the Archive attribute on all contained 
      items of a folder that has been renamed.
        RenameFolderSetArchiveBit=1
      Many backup programs rely on this bit to decide what has to be backed up 
      but Windows does not care for it by itself. Now XYplorer cares.
      Might be raised to UI later.
    ! Configuration | General | Tree and List | List | Select next item after 
      delete and move: If this option was OFF then any selections in the source 
      list (selections that were done after the operation was started) were lost 
      after a move or delete operation had completed. Fixed.
    ! Dual Startup Path: Did not support a special path as first path. Fixed.
      Now this command line works: /fresh Desktop||Downloads

    + Menu Panes: Added "Swap Panes" (Ctrl+Shift+F10) to swap the positions of 
      both panes, including tabs, breadcrumbs, and the pane dimensions.
    + Info Panel | Report | Current Folder | Classic directory dump: Now the 
      summary bytes are also shown in a friendly format.
        Before: 11.133.486 bytes
        Now:    11.133.486 bytes (10,62 MB)
    - Configuration | General | Safety Belts, Network | Network | Fast network 
      enumeration: Removed the setting. For most users ticking it brought a 
      severe slowdown.
      On upgrading it is set to 0 (unticked).
      It will be kept as a tweak: NetworkNetServerEnum
    - Configuration | General | Safety Belts, Network | Network | Pre-check 
      availability of servers: Removed the setting. For most users ticking it 
      brought a severe slowdown.
      On upgrading it is set to 0 (unticked).
      It will be kept as a tweak: NetworkPrecheckServers
    - Upgrading: Automatic compatibility adjustment for your personal settings 
      is not supported anymore when upgrading from versions below v10.00 (i.e. 
      from before 2011-07-05 12:00). If you do that now not all of your settings 
      might be successfully migrated to the current version. Easy workaround: 
      First upgrade to 21.10.0000, then upgrade from there.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.124.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.124.lng is uploaded.
