Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v18.50.0210 - 2017-11-20 16:54
    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: sysdebug
      Action: Sends a string to the system debugger via API OutputDebugString.
      Syntax: sysdebug string
      Example:
        sysdebug "any string";
      Remarks:
      - SysInternals has a tool "DebugView" to view the system debugger:
        https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/sysinternals/downloads/debugview
        It will show the sent strings in real time in a list.
      - Unicode characters are not supported due to an age old Windows bug.
        They are shown as "?".
      - This command is not officially supported (no mention in help).
    * Color Filters: Just to make sure (it has never been claimed otherwise),
      patterns with groups, e.g. "[a-z]" are not allowed in Color Filters, only
      wildcards *, ?, #.
    ! Color Filters: Filters with invalid patterns could crash the app. Fix #2.

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.

    ! List: This change from v17.60.0006 - 2017-02-26 16:13 was really badly
      implemented:
        "In Search Results & Branch View, dragging a non-root file onto another
        non-root file moved file to root folder of search/branch. This was
        rather confusing. It will not happen anymore. Now for moving a file to
        the root you have to drag it onto the empty space."
      - It only applied to non-first items in the target list.
      - It also applied to modes other than Search Results and Branch View.
      - It only applied when source and target were on the same drive.
      Gosh, that wasn't my best day. Anyway, it's all fixed now.

    + Configuration | Preview | Image preview | Transparency grid: Now you can
      customize the two checkerboard grid colors. Color 1 is the first top-left
      checker field. As usual in XY, left-clicking the color field opens the
      Choose Color dialog, right-clicking resets to the factory default color.
      Factory defaults:
        GridColor1=16777215   '= 0xFFFFFF
        GridColor2=14540253   '= 0xDDDDDD
      Note: The colors are also used for the transparency grid shown for
      thumbnails (Configuration | Thumbnails | Show transparency grid).
      Tip: If you don't want the checkerboard grid but just one particular color
      simply set both colors to that same value.

      Integration | Default File Manager" were not auto-removed on uninstall
      when XYplorer was started it with admin permissions and "Configuration |
      Shell Integration | Default File Manager | Scope" was set to "For all

    + Tweak to enable support for the Scroll Lock key:
        MindScrollLock=1
      Support for the Scroll Lock key had been experimentally implemented in
      v17.20.0103 - 2016-10-05 11:08 and hard-set to ON. Now it's OFF by default
      and you can tweak it on.
    ! Custom Columns: Icons in Custom Columns would draw over the next column
      without mercy. Now the drawing is clipped if the icon column is too narrow.
    ! Scripting: Parsing issue with block comments after NOWDOCs. Fixed.

    % Tabs: Switching to a Find tab did not immediately fill the list with the
      incoming search results (as it's done when triggering the same search
      right from the tab). This had been done so in 20120612 apparently for a
      smoother tab switch, but now I think it's rather confusing so I changed
      it. Results are now shown as they stream in.
    ! Help | Online Support | Check for Updates: Improved a slightly misleading
      message when checking for new beta versions (by holding CTRL).
    ! Catalog: Tooltips would not vanish when over scrollbar. Fixed.
    ! Quick Search: Window title "Quick Search: <search term> ..." remained
      after removing the Quick Search or changing to a non-search tab. Since
      20170915. Fixed.

Code: Select all

v18.60.0002 - 2017-12-16 19:43
    + Configuration | Startup & Exit: Added option "Save changes to disk
      immediately". Tick it to immediately write settings to disk in the moment
      they are changed. Under the adjacent "Apply To..." button you can define
      which changes are saved to disk. These options are available:
        - Catalog
        - Favorites
        - Folder View Settings
        - Keyboard Shortcuts
        - Tags     
        - User-Defined Commands
      Notes:
      - The assumption here is that changes in these categories are usually
        meant to be permanent across sessions, and/or are something you would
        not like to lose by hazard.
      - Note, however, that the feature has advantages and disadvantages:
        * Advantage: Your changes are fixed to disk and protected from loss by
          crash.
        * Disadvantage: If you make a mistake your previous good settings are
          overwritten and nothing can bring them back (unless you still find a
          good backup).
      - The "Favorites" option includes Favorite Folders, Favorite Files,
        Highlighted Folders, Boxed Branches.
        And since there is no separate disk file for Favorites but they are
        kept in XYplorer.ini, XYplorer.ini will be written on changing a
        favorite.
      - I personally would not use this feature since I'm a control freak and
        have automato-phobia. I just like to decide myself when to save what.
        But I can see that not everybody is like me, hence I added it. :)
    - Configuration | Information | Tags: Removed option "Save changes to disk
      immediately" (added v18.50.0204 - 2017-11-16 18:45).
      It's replaced now by the sub-option "Tags" in "Configuration | Startup &
      Exit | Save changes to disk immediately".
    + Self Update: Now any errors when calling the installer are handled/shown
      and the app is closed only when the installer is called successfully.

To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v18.60.0003 - 2017-12-17 16:05
    + ContextMenu64: Now holding the SHIFT key while triggering the menu will pop
      the "extended" 64-bit context menu (using the CMF_EXTENDEDVERBS flag).
      FYI, the same always worked with the 32-bit context menu.
    * ContextMenu64: New version 1.2.5.0.
    * SC quicksearch: Now it ignores any of the following settings that may hide
      stuff from the list. They cannot hide anything from SC quicksearch anypore:
      - Configuration | Tree and List | Items in Tree and List | Show hidden files and folders
      - Configuration | Tree and List | Items in Tree and List | Show system files and folders
      - Configuration | Tree and List | Items in Tree and List | Hide protected operating system files
      - Configuration | Tree and List | Items in Tree and List | Show junctions
      - View | Show Items | Show Folders in List
    + Configuration | Startup & Exit | Save changes to disk immediately: Added
      option "Configuration" to the "Apply To..." button. Will save the INI file
      to disk after you OK the Configuration dialog.
    - Configuration | Startup & Exit: Removed option "Autosave settings after
      this many minutes". It has been replaced by the more powerful and easier
      to understand "Save changes to disk immediately".

    * Find Files: Stating no pattern was ever since equivalent to stating * as

      Information Bar in the List, and in the <get find_queryparsed> variable.
    ! Hover Box: Would sometimes pop when cursor had already left the list. Fixed.

    ! View | Show Items | Hide Protected Operating System Files: Toggling it did
      not have immediate effect anymore. Fixed.
    ! Find Files: The change in v18.60.0005 had the undesired side effect that
      toggling to Branch View would also invoke a Quick Search for "*". Fixed.
    ! Tabs: A locked startup tab was overwritten by a command line startup path
      if the Tree was locked as well. Fixed: A new tab is opened.
    ! Tabs: A startup tab was overwritten by a command line startup path if the
      Tree was locked, even if "Configuration | General | Startup & Exit | Open
      command line start path in new tab" was enabled. Fixed: A new tab is
      opened.
