    + Mouse Up Show Down: Now the Right Arrow key will select the item currently 
      shown at the top of the list. That way you can easily scroll to some area 
      of the list using the wheel and then enter the list's keyboard interface 
      at this position.
      This new trick also works in the dropdown menus of the Breadcrumb Bars 
      (unless they are of type "Standard Menu").
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.

Release Notes: https://www.xyplorer.com/release.php

Code: Select all

v21.80.0000 - 2021-05-12 20:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Favorite Live Filters. Now you can define up to 32 Favorite Live Filters for 
      the Live Filter Box. Makes you filter faster.
  +++ Enhanced Archive Extraction. The various extraction commands now also 
      support *.rar and other WinRAR formats and *.7z and other 7-Zip formats if 
      those applications are present (even on a portable medium).
  +++ Permanent Random Sort Order. A randomized sort order now survives a list 
      refresh and is remembered between tab switches and app sessions.
  +++ Marked Custom Sort Orders. Now the random sort order is indicated by a small 
      "dice" character in the Name column header, and the manual sort order by a 
      small "hand" character. It's the little things.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of The Black Keys.

    ! Custom Copy | Progress Dialog: Since 20181210 you would not see the main 
      icon of the dialog anymore when in Light Mode. Gasp! Fixed.
    ! File | File Special | Extract Here: Was still disabled when the current 
      file was a RAR or other non-ZIP archive. Fixed.
    ! List | Sort Order Mark: Did not change from "dice" to "hand" when manually 
      changing a random sort order. Fixed.

    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box | Extra fields: 
      Now the field "Hard Links" is only shown when it is not "1" (which it is 
      almost always). So it's only shown when it is interesting.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.131.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.131.lng is uploaded.

v21.80.0004 - 2021-05-17 12:49
    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box | Show custom 
      file info tips: Now when this setting is OFF (which is also the factory 
      default) a native version of the default tips is shown for files and 
      folders, not the shell's default tips anymore. The native tips are better, 
      faster, and safer (once again I suspect the presence of Adobe to cause 
      crashes when popping the shell's file info tips on PDF files on some 
      systems).
      Another advantage: The default File Info Tips are now in XYplorer's 
      selected interface language, not in the system's language.
    * List: Now the random sort order is indicated by another small "dice" 
      character, namely by "Game Die" (U+1F3B2 = a Unicode Supplementary 
      Character). It looks a little less pathetic than the previous one (Unicode 
      U+2684). Not sure if this is supported by Win7, let me know...

    + Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: Added option 
      "Default to native file info tips". Tick it to show native file info tips 
      when "Show custom file info tips" is unticked. Otherwise the shell version 
      of the default file info tips is shown.
      This addition makes the changes in v21.80.0004 - 2021-05-17 12:49 optional.
      NB: The "File Info Tips & Hover Box" page needs a re-design I know...
    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box | Default to 
      native file info tips: Now the 3 file dates are shown in the same format 
      as in the file list. Before, they had been hardcoded to ISO 8601.
    ! Hi-Res: All the Hi-Res "fixes" of recent weeks were no good. Back to the 
      state before v21.70.0007 - 2021-04-23 17:13.

v21.80.0103 - 2021-05-20 12:01
    + File Info Tip: XYplorer's native tips now show dimensions and aspect ratio 
      for images.
    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box | Default to 
      native file info tips: Renamed it to "Use standard shell file info tips" 
      and reversed the logic accordingly. It will be unticked by default 
      (because of suspected Adobe PDF issues), but ticked for upgraders (to 
      continue the previous behavior).
    * File Info Tips & Hover Box: Now the question what is shown over what (over 
      icon, caption, or thumbnail) is answered in the same way in each view. In 
      Tiles and Thumbs views the thumbnails are taken as icon in this regard.
    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: Rearranged the 
      items on this page. File Info Tips is all at the top now, then Hover Box, 
      and clipped tips at the bottom.
    ! Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box | Show info tips 
      only when hovering file icon: Did not do what it said anymore. Fixed.

    ! Hi-Res: Icons with overlays were still drawn wrong on resolutions > 100% 
      in various list modes. Fixed.
      Note that, at least under Win8.1, after a change in screen resolution 
      (even when changing to 100%) the app sometimes needs two starts to get the 
      display of icon overlays right. This is quite strange to put it mildly and 
      points to Windows doing some weird ("smart") things in the background 
      related to screen resolution.
