Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v21.50.0121 - 2021-02-13 12:48
    + Status Bar: Added option "Smart Size Middle Section" to the 
      right-click menu of the Status Bar. Here you can toggle whether the middle 
      section smartly negotiates the available space with the right section.
      Factory default is ON (which was hard-coded, if tweakable, before).
    * Status Bar: Right-click option "Show Exact Bytes in the Status Bar" 
      renamed to "Show Exact Bytes in Status Bar" for consistency.
    ! Scripting | Step Mode: Did not work for scripts called from Custom Toolbar 
      Buttons since 20201018. 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.

Code: Select all

v21.50.0122 - 2021-02-14 12:38
  +++ Quick Search and Find Files: Added selector "contchar:" (= contained 
      characters). Use it to find files that contain certain characters or 
      character ranges within their textual contents (non-textual files and 
      folders are ignored).
      Syntax:
        contchar: min - max    = from min to max (both inclusive)
        contchar: min -< max   = from min to max (max exclusive)
        contchar: min >- max   = from min to max (min exclusive)
        contchar: min >< max   = from min to max (both exclusive)
        contchar: > n          = bigger than
        contchar: >= n         = bigger than or equal
        contchar: < n          = smaller than
        contchar: <= n         = smaller than or equal
        contchar: == n         = exact (identical to the next example)
        contchar: n            = exact

        Notation:
          - min = lower Unicode value
          - min = upper Unicode value
          - n = Unicode value
          - Unicode values can be stated as decimal or hex numbers (eg 0xFF).
          - Instead of a number representing a Unicode value you can also pass a 
            single character. Both ways can be mixed.
          - Spaces are optional.
      
      Remarks:
        - Only Text files and Office files are scanned. Where possible the text is 
          extracted via IFilters, otherwise code pages are applied just as in other 
          places of XY.
        - On a logically inverted search (eg "!contchar:>=256" = find all files 
          NOT containing characters beyond ANSI) only files are returned that 
          actually have any textual contents. Not folders or images etc.
        - The function is fast, but a lot of work has to be done. So when huge 
          files are scanned it will take a while.
        - Files are scanned from beginning to end. If the first character is 
          found that matches the criteria the scanning stops and the file is 
          counted as a match.
        - Only double byte UTF-16 Unicode values are supported. The valid range 
          is from 0 to 65535 (0x0 to 0xFFFF).
          
      Examples:
                                // matches all text/office files containing any...
        contchar:9              // TAB characters
        contchar:A-Z            // characters from A to Z
        contchar:65-90          // (same as above)
        contchar:A-90           // (same as above)
        contchar:>=128          // characters beyond ASCII
        contchar:>=256          // characters beyond ANSI
        contchar:0x1800-0x18AF  // Mongolian characters (U+1800-U+18AF)
        
      If "Enable extended pattern matching" is ON then logical inversion like 
      this works:
        !contchar:>=256         // all files not containing any characters beyond ANSI
        !contchar:0x1800-0x18AF // all files not containing any Mongolian characters
        
    * Quick Search and Find Files: From now on, when searching contents using 
      selector "cont:" with logical inversion (eg "!cont:blah" = find all files 
      NOT containing "blah") then only files are returned that actually have any 
      textual contents. Before, also folders and images etc would have been 
      returned.
    - Find Files | Name & Location | Invert: Removed this addition from 
      v21.50.0112 - 2021-02-05 13:54 because it did not work in light mode:
        Now the caption is shown in red when the box is ticked. Makes it easier to 
        note this important setting.
    + Find Files | Name & Location | Invert: Now "[Inverted]" is printed to the 
      search info bar (on top of the search results list) if the Invert box is 
      ticked.
      FYI, to show the search info bar this needs to be ticked: Configuration | 
      Find and Filter | Find Files & Branch View | Find Files | Show search 
      information in list.

    + Hover Box | Images: While the Hover Box is showing an image you now reset 
      the scale to factory default (500 x 500 pixels bounding box) by pressing 
      the "D" key. Remembered across sessions.

v21.50.0124 - 2021-02-17 15:10
    + Find Files and Quick Search: Added switch /P by which the full path of 
      each item is matched against the search pattern. It corresponds to the 
      Path checkbox on Info Panel | Find Files | Name & Location.
      Examples:
        *\backup\?*  /P   //match all items under a folder "backup"
        >\)\\AltRip$ /P   //RegExp: match all items called "AltRip" under a folder ending in ")"
    ! Quick Find Files: The fix from v21.10.0030 - 2020-10-02 12:11 totally 
      destroyed the Quick Find Files feature (Find Files from Quick Search 
      dialog). Fixed.
    ! Quick Find Files: When turned on then Branch View would not work anymore 
      as expected (it would actually run a search instead of a Branch View). 
      Fix #2.

v21.50.0125 - 2021-02-18 19:11
    + Visual Filters and Live Filter Box: Added new selector "path:". Use it to 
      compare the pattern with the path of each item (i.e. the full path 
      excluding the item name itself). This can be useful when you want to 
      filter search results that contain items of different locations.
      Note that the following settings apply to the "path:" matching behavior in 
      Visual Filters and Live Filter Box:
        - Configuration | Find and Filter | Filters & Type Ahead Find | Visual Filters | Match case
        - Configuration | Find and Filter | Filters & Type Ahead Find | Visual Filters | Ignore diacritics
      Examples:
        path:hello        //match all items with a path containing the string "hello"
        path:\hello\      //match all items with a path containing a folder "hello"
        path:*\hello\     //match all items with a direct parent folder "hello"

    ! Compressed Files Icons: In Win10 compressed files icons can be handled by 
      a separate icon (at the same extension) instead of by an overlay. This had 
      confused XY's internal icon cache. Air fixed.
    ! Find Files: On a start up with "Cache search results" enabled and a Live 
      Filtered list, the filtered results were cached and reloaded but the Live 
      Filter itself was forgotten (unless "Persistent live filters" was ON), so 
      the shown list was confusing or even misleading.
      Fixed: Now the Live Filter persists in this case even if "Persistent live 
      filters" is OFF.

    ! Tabs: Right-clicking a tab icon could pop the context-menu on top of the 
      Hover Box (if enabled for tabs). Fixed.
    ! Find Files: A Boolean search combining a Tag field and a Date or Age field 
      yielded wrong results. For example:
        :lbl:Orange AND ageM: < 6 m
      Fixed.
    ! Compressed Files Icons: In Win10 compressed files icons can be handled by 
      a separate icon (at the same extension) that has some new type of overlay 
      tech instead of the oldschool overlay we know since Win95. This had 
      confused XY's internal icon cache. Fix #2.

v21.50.0129 - 2021-03-03 11:04
  +++ Configuration: Added an Apply button that allows you to apply any changed 
      settings without closing the Configuration dialog.
      - Obviously any settings that are applied using the Apply button cannot be 
        undone anymore by the Cancel button.
      - Settings that affect the Configuration dialog itself (e.g. Configuration 
        | Colors and Styles | Fonts | Buttons and Labels) are not applied to the 
        dialog. This needs a close and reopen of the dialog.
    + Configuration | Find and Filter | Find Files & Branch View | Branch View | 
      Let folders pass all filters: If enabled then in a filtered branch view 
      "Folders pass all filters" is shown in the information bar (Configuration 
      | Find and Filter | Filters & Type Ahead Find | Visual Filters | Show 
      filter information in list).

v21.50.0130 - 2021-03-04 16:18
    + Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Rename: Added option 
      "Preselect name". Tick it (= factory default) to preselect the name in the 
      edit box.
      Notes:
      - This option was internally ON in all versions before.
      - Preselecting the name is Windows standard ever since. But personally 
        I find that 95% of the time when renaming a file I want to slightly 
        modify the current name, and not replace it completely. So the current 
        preselection is something I almost never need. Hence I made it optional.
      - This option raises the RenameNoPreselect tweak (v21.20.0001 - 2020-10-17 
        14:36) to UI, but with reversed logic (new key "RenamePreselect").
    + SC extracttext enhanced: Added parameters bitness and flags.
      Syntax: extracttext([file], [bitness], [flags])
        file:   File to extract text from.
                Defaults to the current file.
        bitness:
          [empty]: Attempt extraction according to environment and these settings:
            - Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | 64-bit Windows | Use 
              64-bit IFilters for content search
            - Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | 64-bit Windows | Fall 
              back to IFilters of the other bitness
          32: Attempt extraction using 32-bit IFilters.
          64: Attempt extraction using 64-bit IFilters.
        flags: (bit field)
          1 = Suppress IFilter errors (just return an empty string).
        return: Extracted text.
      Examples:
        text extracttext(<curitem>, , 1); //auto-bitness; suppress IFilter errors
        text extracttext(<curitem>, 32, 1); //32-bit; suppress IFilter errors
        text extracttext(<curitem>, 64, 1); //64-bit; suppress IFilter errors
    ! SC extracttext: Since 20190326 an error message in the "Stepping through 
      a Script" dialog was broken into lines at the sequence "\n". Fixed.
    ! Branch View: The list was updated twice when items were moved within the 
      Branch View with Auto-Refresh on. Fixed. Now it's only updated once.
    ! SC rename: On passing flag 8 (increment on collision) a file renamed to 
      itself was auto-incremented to avoid collision with itself. Obvious 
      nonsense. Fixed.
