Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v18.90.0107 - 2018-04-21 10:53
    * Size Graphics: Slightly changed the colors:
        0      = grey
        < 1 KB = green
        < 1 MB = yellow
        < 1 GB = brown
        < 1 TB = red
        else   = purple
    * Size Graphics: Bars now show at least one pixel of the darker color at the 
      left end when the file is not completely empty.
    ! Size Graphics: Bars did not support sizes > 1 TB. Fixed.
    * Dual Startup Path: Now it forces startup in Dual Pane mode.
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.

Code: Select all

v18.90.0108 - 2018-04-23 21:43
    + Support of filenames ending with dot or space: Additionally to the 
      measurements added in v17.40.0201 - 2016-12-21 14:47, now the permanent 
      deletion of folders *containing* items with such crooked names gets better 
      support:
        If deleting a single folder with contents fails (be it to the Recycle 
        Bin or permanently) you are prompted whether to delete it permanently 
        using XYplorer native methods (bypassing the shell). This will work when 
        crooked names had caused the failure. It will not work when other 
        reasons caused it (e.g. files in use).
      Note that this setting must be ticked for the above to happen: 
      Configuration | General | Controls and More | Miscellaneous | Support 
      overlong filenames.
    * Configuration | Preview | Previewed Formats | Categories: Removed MP4 from 
      Audio Files. It's actually a video format.
    ! List: Not refreshed after deletion of the current folder when folder 
      contents could only be partly deleted due to some undeletable item. Fixed.

Code: Select all

v18.90.0109 - 2018-04-24 15:02
    + Find Files | Name & Location: Added option "Find hidden". Check it to find 
      all items regardless of any settings that may currently hide them.
      This option fully corresponds to the /a switch that was added in v18.60.0209 - 
      2018-01-22 22:02 (and which is still available now, of course).
      So, with "Find hidden" checked, none of the following settings will hide 
      anything from Find Files:
      - 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
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.0100.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.0100.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
    ! Support of filenames ending with dot or space: Yesterday's approach lacked 
      accuracy in thinking. Now it works better.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v18.90.0111 - 2018-04-26 17:43
    + Select On Hover: Experimentally added Select On Hover, i.e. a list item is 
      selected (and focused) when you hover its icon (yep, only the icon, else 
      it'd be just too extreme).
      Notes:
      - Holding CTRL or SHIFT works just like with normal click-selection.
      - The delay is controlled by "Configuration | Information | File Info Tips 
      | Initial delay in milliseconds".
      - Currently the feature is tied to the setting of "Configuration | General 
        | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Mouse | Single click on icon opens list items". 
        Later I will probably add a separate and independent setting: 
        "Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Mouse | Hovering the 
        icon selects list items".
    + Folder Size Cache: Now you can limit the size of the cache, i.e. the 
      number of folders that are cached. Previously the cache size was unlimited 
      and with some users it had grown to incredible sizes which slowed down app 
      startup considerably.
      I decided to limit the cache to 10,000 folders by default. You can tweak 
      this number here to your own needs and liking, e.g. raise it to 50,000:
        CacheFolderSizesMaxCount=50000
      The limiting works like this: On saving the cache from memory to disk, 
      when the number of cached folders is higher than the limit (* see below) 
      then the *oldest* items in the cache are purged (this is possible because 
      each item in the cache carries the date of its last modification).
        (*) To reduce the amount of purging work I added a little optimization: 
        Purging down to the limit only happens when the number of cached folders 
        is higher than 125% of the limit.
    * Clear Folder Size Cache: In v16.70.0012 - 2016-05-16 12:30 this command 
      was added to the Size column context menu:
        Clear Folder Size Cache: Click it to clear the whole folder size cache. 
        The current list will be refreshed and any needed folder sizes freshly 
        calculated.
      Now I think such a radical operation needs an "Are you sure?" prompt. So I 
      changed the caption to "Clear Folder Size Cache..." (trailing dots added) 
      and added a prompt.
      FYI, the clearing is only done in memory, not to disk. So even after 
      clearing it you can still return to your saved cache by choosing "Restart 
      without Saving".
    * Drives Menus: Various menus that show drives and special folders (Links, 
      Desktop...) now honor the settings in Configuration | Tree and List | 
      Items in Tree and List. Only the special folders that are ticked here are 
      also shown in those menus (e.g. in the Breadcrumb Bar dropdown menu).
    ! Branch View: This setting had been ignored in Branch View: Configuration | 
      File Operations | File Operations | Custom Copy Operations | No progress 
      dialog on duplications. Fixed.
    ! File Info Tips: In Search Results and Branch View you could get the wrong 
      File Info Tip for adjacent items with the same name but in different 
      paths. Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

Code: Select all

v18.90.0112 - 2018-04-27 19:06
  +++ Hover Box: Now it also supports text files. It shows the beginning of the 
      file in a style similar to Mouse Down Blow Up on text files.
      Notes:
      - Tick "Configuration | Information | File Info Tips | Show text preview" 
        to enable the feature.
      - The font is controlled by Configuration | Colors and Styles | Fonts | 
        Edit Text.
      - If the whole text does not fit (which will usually be the case) "... 
        [continues]" is printed to the bottom right corner.
      - Zero click text preview, not bad!
    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips | Show image info and 
      preview: Renamed to "Show image preview".
    + Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Mouse: Added option 
      "Select list items on hover". Tick it to enable the new Select On Hover 
      feature.
    ! Select On Hover: Fixed a couple of glitches.
    > Select On Hover: Untick "Configuration | Information | File Info Tips | 
      Show info tips only when hovering file icon" so you still can see file 
      info tips and Hover Box when hovering the caption of an item.
    + Hover Box: Now it shows the targets of LNK files (aka shortcuts).
    * Hover Box: Increased the thumbnail size from 400x400 to 500x500.
    * File Info Tips: Since the data shown in those tips is gathered by the 
      Windows shell the LNK extension of LNK files had been suppressed in the 
      "Name" field (an age-old shell stupidity). Now, XYplorer takes care to 
      show this extension in the File Info Tip.
      The same is done for PIF and URL extensions.

        - Image Files   (Thumbnail)
        - Video Files   (Thumbnail)
        - Font Files    (Thumbnail)

        - Text Files    (Text)
        - Office Files  (extracted Text); PDFs (Thumbnail)
        - Web Files     (Text)
    * Hover Box: From now on file types excluded in "Configuration | Preview | 
      Previewed Formats" (excluded by extension or by the whole category) will 
      also not pop the Hover Box.
    ! Drives Menus: One was still missing from the v18.90.0111 fix. Fixed now.

        Configuration | Information | File Info Tips | Show Hover Box
      And a full resolution tick list under the new "Apply To..." button.

    + Configuration | Preview | Previewed Formats: Added button "Find...". Use 
      it to quickly jump to a particular extension in its category.
      Note that Find looks for the next match from here (current category, 
      current extension). It turns around to the beginning when it has reached 
      the end.
    + Configuration Dialog: Now you can use F7 anywhere in the dialog to jump 
      back and forth between this and the previous page.
      FYI, the previous page is NOT saved across sessions.

    ! Find Files, Quick Search, Visual Filters, Live Filters, Ghost Filters: All 
      those searches and filters support looking for files without extension:
      - No extension: Patterns ending with a dot match files that have no 
        extension. Folders never match such a pattern.
          *.      Match any files without extension
          a*.     Match all files beginning with "a" and without extension
      But falsely also a single dot (.) was seen as such a pattern. Fixed. A 
      single dot does NOT match only files without extension anymore; there must 
      be at least one character before the dot.
      A single dot simply matches all items with a dot.
    ! Paper Folders: Paper Folder names with an extra dot in the name 
      (additional to the dot in ".txt") were shown cropped in various places in 
      the interface. Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v18.90.0119 - 2018-05-02 16:47
    + Find List Item: In all smaller lists throughout the interface you now get 
      a command "Find..." in the context menu that opens a "Find List Item" 
      dialog. Enter a string (partial match) or a wildcard pattern, and the 
      selection will jump to the next matching item (wrapping around to the 
      beginning). Particularly useful, of course, in lists that have no 
      accompanying filter box.
      Remarks:
      - Search start at the current position (focus) in the list.
      - Matching is case-insensitive (A==a).
      - Each list remembers its last search term.
      - Bonus Tip: If the list has input focus you can use these keyboard 
        shortcuts:
          - F4              Open the "Find List Item" dialog.
          - Shift+F4        Repeat the last search.
        Exception: This does NOT work in the main form, since the global F4 
        keyboard shortcut will overwrite it, so the only small list in the main 
        form (Info Panel / Find Files / Excluded) will not support this trick.
    * Hover Box: Now it can be enabled independently of File Info Tips, i.e. you 
      can have the Hover Box without having the File Info Tips. Consequently the 
      setting has been moved upgraded from being a child of "Show file info 
      tips" to a sibling.
      NOTE: Nevertheless most of the settings under "Show file info tips" still 
      also control the behavior of the Hover Box!
    ! Hover Box: Fixed some layout glitches when hovering LNKs.

    % Sorting: Before, the sort order of the Name column was undefined/chaotic 
      (within blocks of identical first and second field) when you applied a 
      secondary sort order and the Name column was not one of the two sorted 
      columns. Now under such conditions, a silent implicit tertiary sort of the 
      Name column is performed, using the same direction (ascending or 
      descending) as the secondary sort.
      So, from now on the Name column's sorting is never undefined/chaotic 
      anymore.
