Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v23.20.0107 - 2022-06-20 12:49
    + SC EditConf: Now it also handles files with newlines other than CRLF.
    ! List: Extended multi-selection by keyboard did not work as in File Explorer. Fixed. 
      Now it works like this (pivot is the last explicitly selected single item by 
      Ctrl+Click or Ctrl+Space):
      - Shift+Space: Select all from the last pivot to here; remove all other selections.
      - Ctrl+Shift+Space: Select all from the last pivot to here; keep all other selections.
    ! SC inputselect: Since 20220609 the Live Filter Box partially covered the OK button 
      in very narrow windows. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | General | Controls & More | Miscellaneous | Resolve junctions: Did 
      not work for special paths (aka virtual paths), e.g. "[user]\OneDrive". Fixed.
: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.

Code: Select all

v23.20.0108 - 2022-06-21 12:28
    + Breadcrumb Bars | Context Menu: Added option "Resolve Junctions". Tick it to resolve 
      junctions when navigating via Breadcrumb Bars. Then when you click a path component 
      that is a junction, or go to one via one of the arrow dropdowns, you will be taken 
      to the target of that junction.
      FYI, this makes optional what was hard-changed in v22.10.0101 - 2021-08-17 13:43.
    + Breadcrumb Bars | Context Menu of Components: Now if the component is a junction, 
      the menu offers the command "Copy Junction Target".
    ! List: Extended multi-selection by keyboard. Fixed another glitch.

v23.20.0109 - 2022-06-22 15:02
    + Tools | Customize List | Date Column Format: Added "Ordinal Date" as a new date 
      format option. Today would be "2022-173" ([year]-[number of day of the year]). 
      Eliminates the moon from the equation (or the months, which are just pseudo-moons 
      anyway) and makes it easier to estimate the date difference at a glance.
      The format "yyyy-ddd" is actually part of ISO 8601. It seems to be used by the 
      military in some contexts, so it's safe to assume it has its uses.
    > List | Extended Multi-Selection By Keyboard: Revised and simplified the code. Should 
      work just like before.
    * List | Size Column | Circles / Bars: Improved visibility in selected items on Full 
      Row Select with "Configuration | Colors and Styles | Highlights & Dark Mode | 
      Selections" set to "XYplorer Classic Style".
    * Duplicate File Finder | Ignore numbers: The previous logic returned too many dupes. 
      Now the amount of digits is also important.
      - "Fred(1).txt" and "Fred(2).txt"         -> dupes
      - "1979.png" and "2022.png"               -> dupes
      - "1979.png" and "20200103015144244.png"  -> NOT dupes
    ! Duplicate File Finder: A cached dupes search did not show the correct number of 
      groups in the status bar. Fixed.

    * Duplicate File Finder: Now the dupe groups in the results list are distinguished by 
      slightly different, alternating background colors.
    ! List | Extended Multi-Selection By Keyboard: Fixed another inconsistency with File 
      Explorer.
    ! File | Rename Special | Batch Rename...: The Rename Preview could crash if in rename 
      was done in Branch View. Fixed.

v23.20.0112 - 2022-06-24 11:22
    + Duplicate File Finder | Ignore Numbers: Now it also ignores strings that are 
      auto-attached by Windows to the name of a file copied in the same place, e.g. "Copy 
      of " or " - Copy". It also ignores any accompanying serial numbers, e.g. "Copy (3) 
      of " or " - Copy (3)".
      FYI, these templates apparently can be modified here (probably from Win 7 onwards)(did not try):
        HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\NamingTemplates\CopyNameTemplate
      However, currently XY does not read this registry setting but works with the Windows 
      defaults (in English, German, French, Spanish; more on request).
      For example, all of these names are considered identical, namely "Fred.vcf":
        Copy (2) of Fred.vcf
        Copy of Fred.vcf
        Fred - Copy (2).vcf
        Fred - Copy (3).vcf
        Fred - Copy (99999).vcf
        Fred - Copy.vcf
        Fred - Kopie (4).vcf
        Fred(1) - Copy.vcf
        Fred(1).txt
        Fred(1).vcf
        Fred(2) - Copy.vcf
        Fred(2).vcf
        Fred(3) - Copy.vcf
        Fred(4) - Copy.vcf
        Fred.vcf
        Kopie (2) von Fred.vcf
      Note that the presence of the word "copy" is not mandatory for extended ignore; also 
      these are now considered identical (which is really nice):
        Gustavo.zip
        Gustavo (1).zip
      And these:
        Gustavo.txt
        Gustavo-01.txt
        Gustavo-02.txt

    - Tools | Customize List | Date Column Format | (Zodiac): Removed the Zodiac date 
      format added in v3.60.0024 - 2004-09-04 12:44. I've never heard of anyone using it 
      anyway. Which is a good sign (pun intended).
    ! CEA: The "Changing Locations | After painting the file list" event was not fired on 
      creating a new tab from a Search Results or Branch View tab whereas it was fired 
      when doing this from a normal tab. Fixed. Now it's fired on all of those events.

        font(, "Segoe UI", 9, 0, 0);  //set main font to the current factory default
        font("e", , 12);    //just change the size of the editor font
        font("e", , "+2");  //just increase the size of the editor font ("+2" needs the quotes!)
        font("mce", , 12);  //yep, you can even set all 3 areas at once
        status font();      //just show the current main font in the status bar
      Examples for Syntax 2:
        font("m;Consolas;12;0;1");  //set main font to Consolas 12 italics
        font("m;Segoe UI;9;0;0");   //set main font to the current factory default

    + Status Bar: Just like with the Breadcrumb Bars, you can now independently customize 
      the font size of the Status Bar by Ctrl+Wheel over the Status Bar.
      In case you don't have a mouse wheel (or if "Enable zoom by Ctrl+mouse wheel 
      (Fonts)" is disabled) you can tweak it here (note that this value is the actual font 
      size multiplied by 1000):
        StatusBarFontMilliSize=9000
    * Configuration | Colors and Styles | Fonts | Enable zoom by Ctrl+mouse wheel: Now 
      Ctrl+Wheel anywhere over the Info Panel will modify the "Buttons and Labels" font 
      size. Previously, this modified the "Main Contents" font size.
    ! Shell Properties: The "File version" property (and hence the "File version" column) 
      did not work in Win10 and later. Fixed.

:off: 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

v23.30.0000 - 2022-06-28 20:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Ordinal Date. The new Ordinal Date option for the date format eliminates the months 
      from the equation and only displays years and days. This makes it easier to estimate 
      a date difference at a glance. For example, today would be "2022-179" (year 2022, 
      day 179). The Ordinal Date format is used by the military in some contexts, so it's 
      safe to assume it has its uses.
  +++ Preview Pane to the Left. Now you can show the Preview Pane to the left of the file 
      list. The obvious advantage is that the previews then are nearer to the name column, 
      which is where you usually look and click.
  +++ Duplicate File Finder Can Ignore Numbers. Now it can optionally ignore serial 
      numbers and strings like "Copy of" that are auto-attached by Windows to the name of 
      a file copied in the same place. If "Ignore numbers" is enabled, the file names 
      "Fred.txt", "Fred (1).txt", "Fred (2).txt" and "Fred - Copy (2).txt" are considered 
      duplicates.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to "(I'm) Stranded" of The Saints.
To download this OFFICIAL version choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.
