    ! Tree: Drawing glitch (some stray grey rectangles) in a Locked Tree with
      Full Row Select on and Tree Path Tracing off, under certain conditions.
      Fixed.
    ! Configuration | Colors and Styles | Templates | Command Line Interpreter:
      Apparently the first of any passed arguments was cut off in Win8.1 and
      later. This did not happen before. It's a bit mysterious. Should be fixed
      now.

    * Updated the help file.
    ! Configuration | Colors and Styles | Templates | Command Line Interpreter:
      The used-defined arguments were passed only when calling the CLI via Address
      Bar (!-escape), not via the "Open Command Prompt Here" command. Fixed.
      Example:
        Executable: C:\Path\To\Hyper.exe
        Arguments: <path>
      The above configuration will run this line (<path> replaced by the path
      referred to by "Here" in "Open Command Prompt Here":
        C:\Path\To\Hyper.exe <path>
    ! Tags: Tags in list were not always refreshed after Undo/Redo of moving
      nested tagged folders when the current path was under the moved path.
      Fixed.

    * Folder View Settings: Initial default for a new FVS is now set to "Include
      sub folders". The assumption is that this is the more common use case for
      most users.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.100.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.100.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
      NOTE: Updated was done to version 8.0100 before, but leading zeroes are
            not supported by PHP natsort() on my server, and the website plays a
            part here, so...

    * Find Text in Text Boxes: Removed it from most text boxes in the main
      window (exception: the text preview). Too many users got confused and
      thought it would search for text in files.
      It also stole the important F3 shortcut (Quick Search) whenever the focus
      was in a text box. Problem solved.
    ! Find Text in Text Boxes: Would crash when searching backwards (Shift+F3)
      and the cursor was at the second position. Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v18.90.0129 - 2018-05-17 17:22
    + Help | List All Commands...: Now the number of visible and total items is
      displayed besides the filter box.
    + List Sorting: Added a tweak to control the order of the Name column when
      the list is sorted by any other column. Wherever this other column has
      blocks of equal strings the Name column is automatically used for
      secondary (or on explicit secondary sorting: tertiary) sorting. This tweak
      now lets you control its order:
        SortImplicitNameOrder=0  // 0=inherit (default), 1=ascending, -1=descending
    ! Visual Filters: There was a hole in the pattern parsing logic, which made
      Visual Filter syntax differ from Quick Search syntax in an unexpected way.
      For example, the following patterns should both find/filter all items that
      were not modified on a weekend, but the second pattern did not work with
      Visual Filters:

                         !dateM:dw 6-7        dateM:!dw 6-7
                         ----------------------------------
        Quick Search:      OK                   OK
        Visual Filter:     OK                   NOT OK
     
      Fixed.
     
      Visual Filters before the fix:
        !n*             matches NOT "n.txt"
        name:!n*        matches "!n.txt"        <-- this changes after the fix
        !dateM:dw 6-7   matches all items not modified on a weekend
        dateM:!dw 6-7   did not match anything  <-- this changes after the fix

      Visual Filters after the fix:
        !n*             matches NOT "n.txt"
        name:!n*        matches NOT "n.txt"
        !dateM:dw 6-7   matches all items not modified on a weekend
        dateM:!dw 6-7   matches all items not modified on a weekend
     
      FYI, you can also double-invert patterns: "!dateM:!dw 6-7" is functionally
      identical to "dateM:dw 6-7" and matches all items modified on a weekend.
    ! Folder View Settings: Sometimes the wrong default settings were applied
      when changing from an FVS listing to a non-FVS listing. Fixed.

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

    % Custom Toolbar Buttons: Now only the *visible* custom button icons are
      loaded at startup. Depending on the number and nature of your Custom
      Toolbar Buttons this can notably reduce startup times.
    ! File | File Special | Add to Zip...: Did not work when there was no
      "current file" (that's the file shown in the Status Bar and in the Info
      Panel), e.g. after lasso-selecting files. Fixed.
    ! Visual Filters: The recent change added a bug related to logical
      inversion. Fixed.

    * Info Panel | Preview: The "Word wrap" checkbox you see when previewing a
      text file now also controls word-wrapping when previewing text files in
      the Floating Preview and in the Preview Pane.
    * Floating Preview: Now the zoom factor is kept (even when "Lock Zoom" is
      off) when the current preview is reloaded due to an auto-refresh event.
    ! Custom Copy: Empty folders were not selected-on-paste in the target list.
      Fixed.

    ! Preview Pane: Under certain conditions messages of previous previews
      would stick and cover the current preview. Fixed.
    ! Status Bar: Messages "refreshing column... (ESC to stop)" and "refreshing
      column done" were sometimes shown when not really necessary. Fixed.
    ! Thumbnails View with MDBU: You could drag an unselected file by grabbing
      the thumbnail quick enough before the MDBU popped up. However, it was the
      selected files that were actually moved then, not the dragged file.
      Fixed: Now you cannot grab a file by the thumbnail anymore if MDBU is
      enabled.

    * Drag Status Box: Now it shows the item name (without path) when exactly
      one item is dragged (instead of just "1 item"). Cool!
    * Thumbnails View with MDBU: Solved better than in v19.00.0001. Now you can
      left-button-grab an image by the thumbnail even if MDBU is active *if* you
      grab it quickly enough (you got 150 msecs). If necessary the dragged file
      is made the selected and focused file internally (losing any other current
      selections) so that any file operation is performed on that file.
    * The following change from v18.90.0111 - 2018-04-26 17:43 is now bound to a
      tweak (because now I think it was too radical to be applied just like that):
          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).
      Now you have to set this new tweak to get the above behavior:
        PopupVisibleSpecFoldersOnly=1
    ! SC getsectionlist: Did not work well with entries lacking an equal-sign (=).
      Now it does better.
