Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v23.70.0341 - 2022-11-18 11:52
    + Show Folder Sizes: Added a tweak to delay the folder size calculation when 
      navigating to a new location. This would delay it by 2 seconds:
        ShowFolderSizeDelayMsecs=2000
    ! Scripting | Arrays: You could not pass an array to a user function. Fixed. Now this 
      works as expected:
        $a = array("cat", "dog"); 
            Test($a);
            echo $a[0]; //tiger
        function Test(&$array){
            echo count($array); //2
            echo $array[0]; //cat
            $array[0] = "tiger";
        }

    % Toolbar: Now various drop-down menus with paths open faster and do not wake up a 
      sleeping drive. The price: Shell custom icons for folders are not shown in those 
      menus, nor the "?" icon for unavailable locations.
    % Multi-User Tagging: Speed improvements when reading and writing the DB.
    ! Multi-User Tagging: The DB was not locked as tightly as it should have been. Fixed.

      where in earlier versions it would just crash. Helps to track down a crash bug. The 
      code will remain in there until further notice.

    + New variable: Returns the full path to the actual Admin.ini file used (which differs 
      from the default "<xypath>\Admin.ini" in case of redirection):
        echo <xyac>; //actually used Admin.ini file
        text readfile(<xyac>); //show the contents of the actual Admin.ini 
    + SC readfile: Now it supports the wildcard * in the filename parameter. The first 
      matching item is used according to NTFS item order.
        text readfile("<xypath>\*.txt");    //opens the first TXT file
        text readfile("<xypath>\XY*.txt");  //opens the first matching TXT file
    % Custom Copy: The progress dialog now works better for 12 point fonts. No more 
      clipped descenders.

    + SC resolvepath: Now it resolves the wildcard * in the path parameter. The first 
      matching item is used according to NTFS item order:
      In a typical installation, the following two lines return "C:\Program Files 
      (x86)\XYplorer\LicenseXY.txt":
        text resolvepath("<xypath>\*.txt");
        text resolvepath("*.txt");  //resolvepath defaults to <xypath>
    * Tools | List Management | Tagged Items...: For performance reasons, you now only see 
      generic icons when your database contains more than 65,536 items.
    ! Tools | List Management | Tagged Items...: Since 20221121 icons were missing for 
      lists larger than 1000 items. Fixed.
    ! Tags: Moving or renaming selected items did not set the dirty flags for those items 
      and did not increase the dirty count. Fixed.
    ! Multi-User Tagging: If you deleted a tagged file, and then renamed another file to 
      the name of the deleted file, after close and restart the renamed file would inherit 
      the tags of the deleted file. Fixed.
