v21.60.0117 - 2021-03-31 14:46
    + Configuration | Preview | Preview | Audio preview: Added "Seamless wave 
      looping". Tick to play WAV files in a special way that allows perfect 
      seamless looping.
      - For technical reasons this mode has no progress feedback and no pausing 
        (only full stop / back to zero), just perfect audio.
      - WAV files will be looped regardless of the setting of "Configuration | 
        Preview | Preview | Audio/Video preview". It does not have to be "Play 
        Again".
      - This setting also affects "Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up | 
        Mouse Down on Thumbnails and Icons | Audio preview".
        Analog to above, WAV files will be looped regardless of the setting of 
        "Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up | Mouse Down on Thumbnails 
        and Icons | Loop".
    - Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up | Mouse Down on Thumbnails 
      and Icons | Seamless wave looping: Moved to "Configuration | Preview | 
      Preview | Audio preview". See above.
    + Preview Tab: The orange button dropdown menu now also has the "Seamless 
      wave looping" toggle.
    ! Seamless Wave Looping: Did not obey to Configuration | Preview | Preview | 
      Audio/Video preview | Autoplay. Fixed.
    * Tree: The Space key worked as a Type Ahead Find key and jumped to the next 
      folder downwards with a space in the name. IMO that's not anything 
      expected and can be quite surprising. Removed that. The Space key is now 
      dead in the tree.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

    + Preview Tab: Modernized the look of the progress and volume controls.
    - Preview Tab: Removed that old "Loading..." graphic (which was never 
      translated because it was a picture).
    ! Find Files: Bogus error message "Access Denied" possible since 20210325. 
      Fixed.
    ! Find Files: Crash on large deep recursive searches possible (overflow) 
      since 20210325. Fixed.

    * Preview Tab | MP3 Info: The "Genre" is now shown in a label, not in a 
      dropdown box anymore. Click the label to open the (totally crazy but 
      official) list of available music genres.
    * Preview Tab | CD Info: The current track (eg "<08>") is now shown in a 
      label, not in a dropdown box anymore. Click the label to open the list of 
      available tracks and select which one to play.
    * Tree: Revised the change in v21.60.0117. The Space key now works again as 
      a Type Ahead Find key, but only in combination with other keys (use fast 
      typing to form a sequence).
    * List: Just like in Tree now, the Space key works as a Type Ahead Find key 
      only in combination with other keys. That way it's free to trigger its 
      more expected jobs, selecting files and stop/pause media preview.
    ! Seamless Wave Looping: Fixed various interface glitches.

        p = Number plate style (frame with filled background)
            Has to be combined with switch f (frame) or b (bold frame).
    + Portable Devices: Added some more error messages to failed file operations 
      on Portable Devices. Just in case. (This time it even works.)
    ! Toolbar | Append: Would append items that were already in the clipboard, 
      thus creating duplicates in the clipboard. Fixed.

    + Toolbar | Folder View Settings: Now the button is shown by factory default.
    + Find List Item: Since v18.90.0119 - 2018-05-02 16:47 you got a command 
      "Find..." in the context menu of all smaller lists throughout the 
      interface. Now there's an additional command "Find Next (Shift+F4)", 
      mostly to remind you that this function and keyboard shortcut exist.
    ! Quick Search (and similar dialogs): The dropdown lists had the "Find..." 
      command in the context menu of the list items. Did not work well because 
      it fell into the dark hole of recursion (dialog called itself). Removed.

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

v21.70.0000 - 2021-04-07 21:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Seamless Wave Looping. Just select a sample file and hear it spinning in a 
      perfect seamless loop. Audio folks love it.
  +++ Smart Branch View. A new branch view (aka flat view) type shows only files 
      and non-empty folders, i.e. any folders that contain nothing or only empty 
      folders (or, in case of a search, do not contain any files that match the 
      search) are not listed in the branch view. Gives you a much cleaner and 
      more useful view.
  +++ Tree Scroll Position Remembered Per Tab. Optionally, each tab restores the 
      tree position it was in when it was last exited. Many users have waited 
      for this feature, not many file managers have it.
  +++ Color-Code Empty Tree Folders. Finally color filters can be applied in the 
      folder tree in a way that lets you spot all empty folders at a glance.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of Elise LeGrow.
