Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

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.

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.

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.

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

        < 1 MB = yellow
        < 1 GB = brown
        < 1 TB = red

    * 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.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v18.90.0106 - 2018-04-19 15:33
    + SC get got a new named argument "cursorpos" to return the mouse cursor
      position on screen.
      Syntax: get("cursorpos", param1)
        param1:
          x,X: X position
          y,Y: Y position
          [else]: Separator between X and Y position
                  If empty it defaults to ";"
        return: Mouse cursor position on screen.
      Examples:
        echo get("cursorpos");      //425;237
        echo get("cursorpos", ","); //425,237
        echo get("cursorpos", ", "); //425, 237
        echo get("cursorpos", "X"); //425
        echo get("cursorpos", "y"); //237       
    + Dual Startup Path: Now it also works via command line from the Windows Run
      dialog, so you can inject a dual startup path into the running or a new
      instance (depending on your settings). Example:
        "C:\Program Files (x86)\XYplorer\XYplorer.exe" C:\||D:\
    * Quick Audio Preview: Inverted button graphics for Play and Pause. Now the
      button tells you what happens when you press it instead of the showing the
      current state.
    ! Startup: When moving the mouse over Tree or Catalog shortly (within 500
      mecs) after startup, the auto-refresh mechanism was not activated for the
      current locations in both panes (and consequently "Suspend Auto-Refresh"
      would be ticked in the menu). Fixed.
    ! Tree: Hot scrolling speed throttle down got a bit extreme in v18.80.0017 -
      2018-03-19 17:18. Now it scrolls faster again when Drag Status Box is off.
      It's also faster with Drag Status Box on now, and you can speed it up by
      moving the mouse horizontally.

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

    % Dotted Folders: Improved support a tiny little bit for folders with names
      ending on more than one dot. But support is by no means complete and it
      never will be. Windows just is not made for this game.
      BTW, such folders can now even be created via normal rename. BUT AGAIN:
      They are not really legal, and XYplorer, File Explorer, and other
      softwares have lots of problems with them. The things that don't work or
      work in unexpected and unpredictable ways are too many to list here. So
      it's definitely *not* recommended to do this -- unless you are hardcore
      and want to have folders whose contents are pretty much invisible to File
      Explorer or other enemies ;).
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0126.   
    ! Toolbar: Under certain conditions the icon of a droppable button changed
      on drop to the icon of last pressed button that popped a dialog. Fixed.

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

    * SC rename: The new mode "l" ("list") now skips the "Edit Item Names"
      dialog when new names are passed in the "pattern" argument, and it obeys
      to the "preview" switch (just like all the other modes do).
      Examples:
        rename "l"; //dialog is pre-filled with current item names
        rename "l", "Don2017.jpg|Don2018.jpg";      //dialog is skipped; no preview
        rename "l", "Don2017.jpg|Don2018.jpg", "p"; //dialog is skipped; preview
      Tip:
        If "Allow move on rename" is ticked (Configuration | General | Sort and
        Rename | Rename | Allow move on rename) then you can pass absolute or
        relative (to the files current path) paths in the "pattern" argument,
        and the files will be moved accordingly. Moving works even to other
        volumes and any missing paths are silently created. Astonishing. :)
        Example:
          // files are renamed and moved to "Logs" subfolder, with preview
          rename "l", "Logs\Don2017.jpg|Logs\Don2018.jpg", "p";

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v18.90.0101 - 2018-04-11 21:02
    + SC rename enhanced: Added a new mode "l" ("list") that corresponds to the
      GUI command "File | Rename Special | Edit Item Names...".
      Syntax: rename [mode (b|r|s|k|e|l)], pattern, [preview (p)], _
                  [itemlist], [flags=1], [illegalcharsreplacewith]
        mode:
          l, list:  Invokes the "Edit Item Names" interface.
                    The "pattern" argument can hold predefined new names to
                    prefill the "Edit Item Names" dialog with. The names in that
                    dialog will be applied to the selected list items after
                    OK-ing the dialog and the following rename preview.
      Remarks:
        The selected list items are renamed top to bottom (just like with the
        GUI command).
      Examples:
        rename "l"; //dialog is filled with current item names
        rename "l", "Don2017.jpg|Don2018.jpg"; //dialog is filled with passed names
        rename "list", "Don2017.jpg|Don2018.jpg"; //"list" is just a verbose alternative to "l"       
    ! Aspect Ratio Column: Some ratios would be formatted as if there were dates
      (e.g. 1.18:1 ---> 1899-12-30 01:18:01). Fixed.

    - MLS: The "Please Select a Language" dialog is not shown anymore on virgin
      startup (as added in 13.70.0138 - 2014-02-19 10:29). Reason: People panic
      when a new app calls the internet right away on startup.
    * Cut and Paste: Now the clipboard is not automatically cleared anymore
      after cut and paste.

      some resizing of the box was needed in order to make space for the
      Filename Length Info. Fixed.

v18.90.0000 - 2018-03-21 12:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Drag Status Box. The Drag Status Box™ is a color-coded information box
      shown at the mouse pointer when hovering over a drop target.
  +++ Prevent Unwanted Dragging. Now you can disallow dragging from folder tree
      and file list independently. Lets you for example protect the tree from
      potentially disastrous drag-and-drop mistakes while keeping the list
      drag-ready to rock.
  +++ Toolbar Font Size. Now Ctrl+Wheel over the Toolbar changes the button
      captions font size on the fly and with high granularity.

    * Tree: Now you cannot collapse the top node (This PC) anymore. Nobody needs
      this shocking experience.
    ! Use standard shell drag and drop: This setting could lead to a crash or
      other weird side effects when among the dragged items was at least one
      overlong (longer than 259 characters) item. The shell cannot handle this
      stuff. Well, XYplorer can. From now on, dragging silently switches to
      XYplorer's native dragging machine in cases where shell dragging is unable
      to cope.
    ! Some menus and tooltips containing folder names like e.g.
        "E:\0\AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
        AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
        AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA\"
      could not handle this monster gracefully, i.e. without spreading over the
      whole screen. Fixed
