    * Live Filter Box: Now if "Configuration | Filters & Type Ahead Find | Type
      Ahead Find | Redirect typing to Live Filter Box" is enabled then pressing
      Space in the list does not select the focused file but sends the Space key
      to the Live Filter Box.
      Note that you still can toggle the selection of the focused item by
      Ctrl+Space.
    ! Multi Branch View: Parsing trouble when any of the folders had a semicolon
      with adjacent spaces in the name. Fixed.
      Nice side-effect: Toggling Multi Branch Views on/off now stays in the
      location. Before you were beamed to This PC. Which sucked.
    ! List: Try #2 to fix a non-reproducible user issue.

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

Download: https://www.xyplorer.com/download.php

Code: Select all

v17.90.0000 - 2017-04-04 20:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Size Graphics. Now the size column can have graphical representations
      of the byte counts right in the column. Simply right-click the size column
      header and choose between three options: No Graphics, Circles, Bars.
  +++ Size Tooltips. The size column now always shows a tooltip (even if the
      text is not cropped) with the exact byte count of the hovered item. Saves
      lots of clicks when you are interested in exact numbers.
  +++ Live Filtering. Now you can filter-as-you-type right in the file list. Try
      it and you will love it. A brilliant way to tame long file lists and focus
      on what's important now.
  +++ Icon Lists. Now you can specify a list of icons that are shown side by
      side for each item in custom columns. Write a script to determine which
      icons are shown for each particular file. This lets you present file
      information in a visually catchy way.

v17.80.0015 - 2017-04-04 08:18 - unpublished
    * Updated the help file.
    % Menus: Again improved drawing of icons at higher DPI settings.

    * Live Filter Box: Now if "Configuration | Filters & Type Ahead Find | Type
      Ahead Find | Redirect typing to Live Filter Box" is enabled then the
      behavior now changes to something even more radical and comfortable.
      If focus is in the List then:
        a) All typing in the List works as if typing in the Live Filter Box:
          - Pressing any character key will append it to the current filter.
            The box is shown if not yet visible.
          - Pressing Back will remove the last character of the current filter.
          - Pressing ESC will remove the filter and the box if there is any.
        b) The focus will stay in the List all the time.
      So the LFB is under these conditions not much more than a visual feedback
      of the current filter. You can still, however, move the focus into it and
      work with it like normal.

    ! Configuration | Tags | Copy tags on copy operations: If the copied item
      had no tags at all then any existing tags in the overwritten item were not
      removed. Fixed. Now they are removed.
      Fix applies also to "Copy tags on backup operations".

v17.80.0012 - 2017-03-31 15:51
    + SC SaveSettings enhanced. Now you can pass an alternate throw-away INI
      file to save the current state of the app to, like a snapshot.
      Syntax: savesettings [settings=all], [ini]
        ini: Alternate ini file.
             Path defaults to <xydata>.
             If this argument is set then the "settings" argument is totally
             ignored and only this INI file is written.
             NOTE: Any same-named existing file is overwritten without questions!
      Examples:
        savesettings , "<curpath>\test.ini";
        savesettings , "%TEMP%\dummy.ini";
        savesettings , "trashme.ini";
    + SC ControlPosition enhanced: Now the active List can be referred to by "L".
        echo ControlPosition("L");  //active List
    ! List: The new Size column tooltips did not work when the undocumented
      ListCellsFirstLinesOnly tweak was enabled. Fixed.
    % Menus: Again improved drawing of icons at higher DPI settings.

    + Extra Tags of type "Icon": Now specifying a list of icons also works here.
      However, since | is not allowed in tags, you have to use ";" as a separator.
      Example:
        Help.ico;Green.ico;:ghost
      Note that ";" as a icon list separator now also works in Custom Columns.
    + Small Lists with Live Filter Box: Now Ctrl+Space pressed in the box
      toggles the checkbox state of the current list item (if there are any
      checkboxes).
      Alternatively F4 does the same job.
    ! Custom Columns | Format Icon: Neither >draw lists not Icon lists did work
      correctly with separator CRLF. Shame on me. Fixed.
    % Menus: Dramatically improved drawing of icons at 100% and higher DPI settings.

    + Custom Columns | Format Icon: Now you can specify a list of icons that are
      shown side by side. You can mix system icons with XY toolbar graphics.
      Icons can be separated by | or CRLF. The distance between the icons is
      hard-coded to 2 pixels.
      Example:
        return "Help.ico|Green.ico|:ghost";
    * Custom Columns | Format Icon: Now the icons are left-aligned in the
      column. Before they were centered but this does not work well with a list
      of icons.
    * Custom Columns | Format Icon: Now "Autosize Columns" is completely skipped
      for these columns. It just does not make sense for bars (only you know how
      wide a bar should be), and it's too hard (time costy) to determine the
      optimal width for lists of icons in large folders.
    % Custom Columns | Format Icon: Icons are drawn much faster now.

      Same works for the Used Space column in Drives mode.

    + Custom Copy: Now the progress is shown in the taskbar button.
      From Windows 7 onwards.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0101.
    * Live Filter Box: Dbl-click on the information bar will now remove the box
      when in "redirect TAF to LFB" mode.
    * Main Window: Any open blow-ups are closed now on resize or minimize.
    ! Custom Columns: Variable <cc_path> was not resolved since 20170322. Fixed.
    ! Type Ahead Find: Did not work for accent/diacritic characters (^´`). Fixed.
    - Undid this change from v17.80.0004 - 2017-03-24 10:07
      * Live Filter Box: The Back key does not go Up (Back) and Down (Shift+Back)
        in the LFB anymore.
      Reason: If Enter works then Back must work, too. Note that Back only goes
      Up/Down when the LFB is empty.

v17.80.0006 - 2017-03-26 15:41
  +++ List | Size Column: Now the Size column can have graphical representations
      of the byte counts right in the column. Simply right-click the Size column
      header and choose between three options:
        - No Graphics     Shows no graphics.
                          Like it has been all the years before.
        - Circles         Shows circles identical to macro >draw.circle.size.
                          Diameter adjusts to row height (which adjusts to font size).
        - Bars            Shows bars identical to macro >draw.bar.size.
                          Width: 50 pixels, Height: small icon height minus 2.
      Like other size related settings in the same right-click menu these
      settings are per pane (and per list mode: browse, find, drives...).
      The options are also available in the main menu (i.e. you can assign
      keyboard shortcuts to them):
        Tools | Customize List | Size Column Format | No Graphics
        Tools | Customize List | Size Column Format | Circles
        Tools | Customize List | Size Column Format | Bars
      Tip: Showing size graphics works nicely with Size Column Format "Flexible
      (Rounded Up)".
    + Custom Columns: Added macro ">draw.bar.size". It will draw a column-wide
      colored size-related bars according to a hard-coded color scheme:
          grey:   Empty
          green:  < 1KB
          yellow: < 1MB
          red:    < 1GB
          purple: 1GB or more
      - Advantage: It's totally easy to do, no scripting involved. Just add a
        Custom Column of type "Template", format "Icon", and enter
        ">draw.bar.size" in the template field:
          Type: Template
          Template: >draw.bar.size
          Format: Icon
          Trigger: Browse
          Item Type: Files
      - Another advantage: It's very fast since it does not run the scripting
        engine for each row.
      - There is also a disadvantage: Since each cell contains the same data you
        cannot sort by this column. There is a trick though: Append the size right
        to the template like this:
          >draw.bar.size <cc_size>
        Now you can sort by the column. But ensure that "Configuration | Sort and
        Rename | Sort | Natural numeric sort order" is ticked, else sorting by
        numbers won't make you happy.
    + Custom Columns: Macro ">draw.circle.size" now uses a different color
      (khaki) for folder sizes.
    + Custom Columns: Command ">draw.bar" enhanced. Added optional borderwidth
      parameter.
        >draw.bar [percentage=50], [colorleft], [colorright], [opacity=224], _
                  [borderwidth=0]
      If Borderwidth is > 0 then the bar is not filled but outlined.
    * Custom Columns: Variable <cc_size> now returns "-1" for items (usually
      folders) who's size has not been determined yet. Before it returned "0"
      which was undistinguishable from a determined 0 bytes size.
      Scripts using that variable might need an update.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.88.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.88.lng is uploaded.
