Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v23.60.0010 - 2022-09-11 20:11
    ! Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability | Usability | Highlight hovered 
      items: If unticked you could not multi-select list items using Ctrl+Click anymore 
      since v23.60.0009. Fixed.
      Apparently in Win 10 and higher this issue lived independently of that highlight 
      setting. Should be fixed there as well.
:info: To easily upgrade to this BETA version from XYplorer, hold down the CTRL key while you click Help | Online Support | Check for Updates. If you prefer to download the BETA version, choose one of these packages:
(1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package (for manual unpacking).

:!!: 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.

v23.60.0011 - 2022-09-12 13:50
    * List: Minor changes, now we have this picture:
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      State                   Action             Selections     Item Focus
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Popup Menu Shown        Click Selected     Unchanged      Unchanged
                              Click Unselected   Unchanged      Unchanged
                              Click White        Unchanged      Unchanged
                               
      Focus In Other Control  Click Selected     Unchanged      Clicked One
                              Click Unselected   Clicked One    Clicked One
                              Click White        Unchanged      Unchanged
      
      Focus In Other App      (same as Focus In Other Control)
      
      List Context Menu Shown Click Selected     Clicked One    Clicked One
                              Click Unselected   Clicked One    Clicked One
                              Click White        Lost           Unchanged
      
      Focus In List           (same as List Context Menu Shown)
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ! Attribute Pinned: For some days FILE_ATTRIBUTE_PINNED was wrongly shown (or not 
      shown) because of an error in a typelib. Fixed in v23.60.0009, forgot to mention.
    ! Edit | Select | Select By Selected Type(s): Since v23.60.0007 it toggled the 
      selections. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Cache path | Resolve cache path from current 
      folder: The portability of relative caches was not where it should be due to a 
      stupid bug from 20211111. Fixed. Now you can actually move those thumb folders 
      around without any recreation of thumbnails.
    + Thumbnails Cache: The INI file has a new key "SoftPath" just for your eyes (the app 
      doesn't need it). Here you can see which path is actually used for the file hash. It 
      can even be totally empty if the cache is right where the files are.
      FYI, the size is also used in the (MD5) hash, separated by an asterisk, so it's eg: 
      MD5("SoftPath*96x96"), or MD5("SoftPath*96x96z") for ZoomToFill.
    ! List: Pressing Ctrl+Alt+M and other shortcuts using the Alt key created a situation 
      where a selection was not removable by the first click on white. This uncovered a 
      weird Windows anomaly concerning the Alt key, which could be worked around now.

    + List | Size Column: The setting "Show Cached Folder Sizes Only" is now also shown in 
      the column header's context menu. Might give you an idea why some of your folder 
      sizes are not shown. ;)
    * Tree and List: Now dragging works as expected (as in File Explorer) when coming from 
      states "Popup Menu Shown" (dragging not allowed) and "Focus In Other App" (dragging 
      allowed).
    ! Tree and List: Rewrote everything related to focus, click and selection. Needed a 
      more thorough approach. Fixes some remaining issues.

v23.60.0014 - 2022-09-13 19:07
    ! Tree and List Clicking: Fixed some glitches after today's rewrite.
    > Tree and List Clicking: Generally speaking, if "Configuration | General | Menus, 
      Mouse, Ease of Use | Ease of Use | Highlight Hovered Items" is checked, I should get 
      it all pretty watertight. If unchecked then there are ways for the mouse to subvert the 
      "Popup Menu Shown" handling (all the rest should work fine). Of course that could be 
      fixed as well, but it's a can full of worms I don't have time for right now.

v23.60.0015 - 2022-09-14 17:50
    + Catalog | Right-Click Menu | Insert As New Category Here | Tabs: Now all tabs are 
      added (also locked tabs and search tabs). Custom tab captions and icons are carried 
      over now. And when you click an item in the Tabs category, it tries and usually 
      succeeds in opening the correct tab. So there you have it: Vertical Tabs. :)
    > Note that the "Tabs" category does not smartly react on any changes in the tabs: it's just 
      a snapshot in case you quickly need vertical tabs. If a tab's location or position 
      has changed, the tab that is now in this position will be selected no matter which 
      location it is pointing to. So it's the *position* in the "Tabs" category that controls 
      which tab is selected, not the path. That gives you a chance to manually adapt the 
      category to any changes if you have the time.
    > You cannot manually create a "Tabs" category with the same functionality. Some 
      internal flags are set only when going via "Insert As New Category Here | Tabs".
    ! Color Filters: Filter "size:0" didn't work reliably anymore for folders (on Show 
      Folder Sizes) since Color Filters are cached (v23.50.0024 - 2022-08-18 17:40). Fixed.
    - Menu View: Removed toggle "Lock Tree" (see below).
    + Menu Tools | Customize Tree: Added toggle "Lock Tree". Replaces the old "View | Lock 
      Tree" that was a bit out of place in this menu.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.153.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.153.lng is uploaded.
        You will be notified if you have subscribed to this thread:
        https://www.xyplorer.com/xyfc/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=9648
    ! Scripting | Arrays: The parser shockingly failed at this line:
        $n = 4; $a[$n+4] = $n * 4; $temp = $a[$n+4]; echo $temp;
      Fixed.

v23.60.0016 - 2022-09-15 13:01
    + Catalog | Tabs Category: Now its right-click menu offers the command "Update 
      Category". It will re-sync the category with the reality of the current tab bar.
    * Catalog | Tabs Category: Now when you select a category item and the tab at the 
      selected position does not match the original path anymore (as stored in the 
      Catalog), it is looked for (and selected) at the other positions, and if still not 
      found, it is created as a new tab.
    % Thumbnail Creation: Experimentally use the flag SIIGBF_BIGGERSIZEOK now. The 
      documentation is mysterious. I'm hunting a long-standing issue with the infamous 
      "This action cannot be completed because the other application is busy." dialog 
      which is haunting Win 10 and 11.
    ! Startup: App could crash on startup (error 11 - "Division by zero") when selecting a 
      file via command line while the list was in view "List". Fixed.
    ! File | File Special | Extract Here: Could result in a crash since 20220828. Fixed.

v23.60.0107 - 2022-09-22 13:01
    + File Info Tips and Hover Box: Now you can specify a "Hover Blacklist" containing any 
      number of target paths to be excluded from the File Info Tips and Hover Box, i.e. 
      excluded from file access on mouse hover. Usually you want to exclude slow paths, 
      e.g. cloud folders.
      The data should be provided in a file placed in <xydata> and named 
      "HoverBlacklist.txt". The paths should be listed one per line in any order. All 
      sorts of variables and portable syntax are supported.
      To exclude whole branches you have to append an * (asterisk) to mark a folder as 
      being blacklisted including all subfolders. The Hover Blacklist supports comments 
      after //.
      So far the syntax is identical to "CustomCopyBlacklist.dat". But there's more:
      You can also exclude certain file types via wildcards * and ?, eg "*.mov".
      Example for contents of HoverBlacklist.txt:
        A:\*                  //strange noises when accessing files
        %HOMEDRIVE%           //boring
        %ALLUSERSPROFILE%*    //who cares
        F:\Sloth\             //slow by nature
        *.mov                 //not interested in MOV videos
        k**                   //who needs files or folders starting with k (or K)
      Note how "k**" needs a double asterisk to resolve the ambiguity with the branch 
      marking final asterisk.
    + Catalog: Now you can assign icons extracted from icon resources (exe; dll; 
      cpl; ocx; scr; icl; bpl; wlx; wfx; wcx; wdx; acm).
      For example (Item Properties | Caption):
        Desk|C:\Windows\System32\imageres.dll /222
        Home|C:\WINDOWS\system32\shell32.dll /163
    * App Icon: Now also embedded the previous icon in 32-bit color depth.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0200. New icon, here it's the all-blue version. Also 
      embedded the previous icon in 32-bit color depth.
    ! Lock Tree: Upgrading from a version older than v23.60.0015 (where the "Lock Tree" 
      toggle moved to menu Tools | Customize Tree) the Lock Tree setting was lost. Fixed.

v23.60.0110 - 2022-09-23 15:47
    * Hover Blacklist: Improved (empowered and simplified) the syntax. Now you can use 
      wildcards in the standard way for whole paths (identified by the presence of / or : 
      in the resolved pattern) or just item names.
      Some examples (no surprises here, all pretty standard):
        A:\*                  //match all items on drive A: (and A: itself)
        A:\slow               //match A:\slow
        A:\slow*              //match all items in and under A:\slow\ (and A:\slow itself)
        A:\slow\              //match all items in A:\slow\ (but not in folders below)
        A:\slow\*             //match all items in and under A:\slow\ (but not A:\slow itself)
        %HOMEDRIVE%           //match %HOMEDRIVE% and all items in the root folder on %HOMEDRIVE%
        F:\Sl?th\             //match all items in paths called F:\Slath\, F:\Sloth\ ... (but not in folders below)
        *\backup\*            //match all items in folders called "backup"
        *.webp                //match all WEBP items
        D:\*.webp             //match all WEBP items on drive D:
        k*                    //match all items starting with k (or K)
        readme.txt            //match all items named "readme.txt"
    % App Icon: Polished some pixels in the 16x16 version. And generally improved the 
      adjustment of the app icon to various screen resolutions.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0201.
