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).
- 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
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:
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
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
* 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
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.
