Code: Select all

v22.60.0216 - 2022-01-07 17:13
    * Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Show file icon on thumbnail: The 
      icon is now shown in the top-right corner of the thumbnail for Tiles 
      views, and in the bottom-left corner for thumbnails views. The idea is to 
      put the icon near the caption.
    ! List: Refreshing a Property column via "Right-click menu | Refresh Column" 
      could crash the app. Fixed.
    ! View | Tab | Filter By Selection(s): Did not work if this backward 
      compatibility tweak was set:
        VFAllowSinglePipeOR=1
      Fixed.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0186.
:info: To update to this BETA version from XYplorer, hold down the CTRL key while you click Help | Online Support | Check for Updates. To download it, choose a 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.

v22.60.0218 - 2022-01-08 14:32
    * Drag and Drop: Now the app is ensured to be foregrounded after a drop from 
      other programs, and the dropped items are auto-selected in the list.
    * Generic File Types: Now unticking types in Configuration | Preview | 
      Previewed Formats will also remove them from the {:[filetype]} variable 
      return.
      This has already been done in Visual Filters and Live Filters for years, 
      and now it's also done in:
      - Find Files (Name)
      - Custom File Associations
      - Custom File Icons
      - echo <get genericfiletype '{:Text}'>;
    * Menu View | Folder View Settings | Manage Folder Views: Now after any 
      deletion the OK button just OKs it and doesn't go into edit mode.
    ! Read-Only Mode: The changes in v22.60.0215 made the app start without 
      knowing about some important app data paths which resulted in an almost 
      fresh instance. Fixed.

v22.60.0219 - 2022-01-09 17:39
    + Scripting got a new function.
      Name: SelectThumbs
      Action: Selects items according to properties of their thumbnails.
      Syntax: selectthumbs([OKthumbs=1])
        OKthumbs: 1 (default): Select all items with okay thumbnails.
                  0: Select all items with not okay thumbnails ("Can't decode" etc)
        return:   Number of selected items.
                  -1 if not in thumbnails mode.                  
      Remarks:
        - If the list is not in thumbnails mode it returns -1, and the current 
          selections are not changed.
        - This batch select is a cool new functionality for photographers.
        - Other thumb/image properties will follow in future.
      Examples:
        selectthumbs();  //select all okay thumbnails
        selectthumbs(1); //select all okay thumbnails
        selectthumbs(0); //select all NOT okay thumbnails
        echo selectthumbs(0); //select all NOT okay thumbnails; show number of selections
    + Mouse Down Blow Up: Added tweaks to use a virtual monitor size on "Use 
      whole screen" and "Shrink to fit". The first tweak enables using the 
      virtual monitor size, the second one defines it (Width,Height):
        ShrinkToFitVirtualMonitor=1
        ShrinkToFitVirtualMonitorSpecs=3840,2160
      The virtual monitor is centered in the current real monitor.
      Alternatively, you can define it with four values to set an absolute 
      position across all of your monitors: Left,Top,Right,Bottom.

    - Removed tweak RTLHighlightSupport. It is no longer needed, the 
      RTL highlighting function is fast enough now to just be active 
      unconditionally.
    * Updated the help file.
      The PDF went down from 6.27 MB to 2.07 MB (embedding fonts was not necessary).
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.141.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.141.lng is uploaded.

        return:   Number of selected items.
                  -1 if not in thumbnails mode.

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

v22.70.0000 - 2022-01-11 20:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Custom Toolbar Buttons Support Middle Click. Now you can define a separate 
      script that will be triggered by the middle button. That gives you 64 more 
      possible scripts to make your life easier.
  +++ Tooltip Zoom. Now you can enlarge the tooltips by up to 400%, which turns 
      each tooltip into a kind of magnifying glass. Relaxes the eyes and makes 
      the file manager easier to use for users with visual impairments.
  +++ Verbatim Tooltips. Now you can optionally display whatever the mouse is 
      pointing at in a tooltip. This option is aimed directly at screen readers 
      who read tooltips aloud and makes the file manager easier to use for users 
      with visual impairments.
  +++ Hover Box Zooming. Now you can hold down the CTRL key to make it super 
      fine: 1 pixel per step. And if you hold SHIFT, it's 10x faster than 
      normal: 100 pixels per step.
To download this OFFICIAL version choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v22.70.0014 - 2022-01-13 11:52
    + Address Bar: The icon now shows the current contents in a tooltip.
    % Word Break Style: Improved the automatic word boundary recognition (on 
      double-click, Ctrl+Arrow, Ctrl+BackSpace) in the rename text boxes of all 
      small lists.
    * Thumbnails: In the case of failed thumbnails (no thumbnail could be 
      extracted) the icons are now drawn. Before that, a text like "Can't 
      decode" was printed.
      If you prefer to see the text, use this tweak:
        ThumbsShowFailure=1
    ! Tooltip Zoom: The zoom did not survive Dark Mode switch, theme switch or 
      hibernation. Fixed.
    ! Highlighting Matches: Since 20220102 a highlight could overlap into the 
      adjacent column. Fixed.

v22.70.0016 - 2022-01-17 18:11
    + SC get got a new named argument "properties" by which you can retrieve 
      all available properties of an item.
      Syntax: get("properties", [flags=14], [item])
        flags:    (bit field) 
                  1: Show empty properties as well.
                  2: Show XY Special Properties.
                  4: Show Shell Properties.
                  8: Show System Properties (see Notes!).
                  Defaults to 14 (2+4+8).
        item:     Full path to an item.
                  If missing the currently focused item is used.
        return:   The properties in form of a block of text.
      Notes:
        - Takes some seconds to return.
        - If only flag 1 is passed (which would return nothing) it is silently 
          changed to 15 (1 + 14).
        - The serial numbers start with 0 for the nerdness touch.
        - No MLS support here; I consider this a semi-debugging tool.
        - For the System Properties to work you need a helper file that contains 
          all names of the properties. This file must be called 
          "SystemProperties.txt" and it has be located in the scripts folder 
          (<xyscripts>).
          Download one here: https://www.xyplorer.com/download/SystemProperties.txt
      Examples:
        text <get properties>; //show all available non-empty properties of the focused item
        text <get properties 1>; //show all available properties of the focused item
        text <get properties 2>; //show the non-empty XY Special Properties
        text <get properties 3>; //show all XY Special Properties        
    + SC savethumb: Now it also works for PDF files.
    + Info Panel | Meta: Video files now show more data, e.g. bit rate, frame 
      width, frame height, frame rate and others.
    ! Thumbnails: Since about v22.60.0219 there was a problem with video 
      thumbnails. Fixed.
    ! Menus: Some context menus did not handle ampersands in filenames correctly 
      (they disappeared). Fixed.

    ! Thumbnails: Some JPEGs created by Adobe Photoshop had an unusual format 
      that caused thumbnail creation to fail. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | Preview | Previewed Formats | Categories: The content of 
      the "Preview as Thumbnail" category had some influence on the thumbnail 
      creation. Which of course doesn't make sense. Fixed.
    ! Hover Box: Did not appear above the main window if it was set to 
      "top-most" by a window manager. Probably fixed (air code).

    + Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up | Mouse Down on Thumbnails 
      and Icons | Enable blow ups on file icons as well: Now when you move the 
      blow up by moving the mouse, the new position (relative to the default 
      (centered) position and relative to the image size) is stored and later 
      restored with the next blow up.
      These values (X and Y) are not remembered across sessions.
    * MDBU on file icons: Now the exact position of the mouse down is not 
      relevant anymore to the initial position of the blow up.
    + Configuration | Preview | Preview | Text preview | Display Tabs as spaces: 
      Now this setting also affects texts in Hover Box and Mouse Down Blow Up.

v22.70.0019 - 2022-01-19 15:11
    * Locked MDBU Location: Wasn't happy with yesterday's algorithm and changed it:
      - The location is only locked (= stored and remembered) if the blow up is 
        beyond (not covering) the point of the mousedown. 
      - The locked position is restored to the absolute distance from the mouse 
        pointer. It is therefore always exactly the same, regardless of the size 
        of the blow up.
      - The locking is done for both dimensions independently: e.g. you can lock 
        the horizontal position to an absolute distance from the mousedown (by 
        dragging the left (right) border of the blow up to the right (left) of 
        the mousedown) while the vertical position is still centered over the 
        mousedown (by keeping the upper and lower border of the blow up above 
        and below the mousedown).
      - Consequently, you can stop any locking by dragging the current blow up 
        over the mousedown.
      - If the locked position is completely outside the screen it is ensured 
        that some part of the next blow up is visible in screen.
      - If "Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up | General | Shrink to 
        fit" is enabled then "Allow panning" is internally ON if the blow up is 
        in a locked position. This is allows you to change the position if you 
        are not happy with it.
    + Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Rename | Serial rename by Up 
      and Down keys: Now in thumbnails views with more than one caption line you 
      can use PageUp/PageDown for serial rename.

    + MDBU | Remember Position: Now it is optional and off by default. Currently 
      it can be enabled only by a tweak (UI setting will come later):
        MDBURememberPosition=1
    + Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box | Extra fields: 
      Now "Shortcut Target" shows any existing command line switches in the 
      tooltip.
    + Meta Tab: Also here the Shortcut Target info now shows any existing 
      command line switches.
    ! Resolving Shortcuts: A long-standing issue with bitness-dependent shortcut 
      targets could probably be fixed. I found a way to determine whether an 
      alleged "C:\Program Files (x86)\" should rather be "C:\Program Files\": I 
      simply check which of the targets actually exist. In many real world cases 
      this will make it return the correct target.
    + Thumbnails Cache: When a list is completely empty but a pair of thumbnail 
      cache files for it still exists (for images that are not here anymore) 
      calling "View | Caches | Refresh Thumbnails" (only possible in a view with 
      thumbnails) will now permanently delete those thumbnail cache files.

    * Thumbnails Cache: Now the list does not have to be completely empty (see 
      v22.70.0021), it just has to have no items with thumbnails to get the

      Thumbnails".
    * View | Calculate Folder Sizes: Now when one or more folders are selected 
      and these folders show their cached folder sizes then this command will
