v17.60.0006 - 2017-02-26 16:13
    * SC QuickSearch enhanced: Added flag "m" to return basic metadata along
      with the found items.
      Syntax: quicksearch([query="*"], [path], [separator="<crlf>"], [flags])
        flags:  [optional] String of flags to modify the function.
                s: Show status.
                m: Return metadata. The format is fixed:
                   name|size|modified|created|accessed|attributes
                   - name: full path name
                   - size: raw bytes
                   - dates: ISO 8601
                   - attributes: string of hyphens/letters (just like in the file list)
      Remarks:
        - This is really powerful stuff. And it hardly costs any time: All info
          is already present and just needs to be stringed up and returned.
        - Tip: If you use "m" you should not set separator to "|" else the
          return is hard to parse.
      Example:
        text quicksearch("*.jpg", , , "m");
      Sample Return:
        E:\Test\AltFacts.jpg|94078|2017-01-23 09:42:44|2017-01-23 09:42:43|2017-01-23 09:42:44|----A-----I-
        E:\Test\OrangeOne.jpg|39138|2015-11-01 21:11:00|2017-01-27 14:19:58|2017-01-27 14:19:58|----A-----I-
    * List: In Search Results & Branch View, dragging a non-root file onto
      another non-root file moved file to root folder of search/branch. This was
      rather confusing. It will not happen anymore. Now for moving a file to the
      root you have to drag it onto the empty space.
    ! List: Crash when sorting by Label but no files have been tagged (since
      20161103). Fixed.

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.

v17.60.0005 - 2017-02-25 22:07
  *** List Column Sort Order Glyph: More than 10 years we had the striped
      pyramid, almost an icon of XYplorer. But it started to feel old. So I
      replaced with a new chevron like glyph. Hope you like it.
    + Custom Copy | Overwrite Prompt: Now differences in the displayed file
      details are underlined only but not highlighted in green anymore. Reason:
      The green does not work well in all color schemes. And I disliked the
      tautological double-marking.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0100.

    ! Search Templates: When running a search directly from the Search Template
      dialog the search was actually run *twice* since 20170215, the first time
      while the dialog was still open. Fixed.
    ! Favorite Folders: A favorite manually added via List Management without a
      trailing slash would be correctly listed in the Favorite Folders menu but
      not be shown bold in the Tree. Fixed.

    * Overwrite Prompt: Stabilized the height of the dialog since it's pointless
      to change it (any changes were not remembered anyway between calls). So
      this is now a dialog where you can only customize the width.
    ! Tools | Customize Toolbar: The dialog failed without grace on large DPI
      settings (>= 200%). Fixed.
      Part of the solution was to redesign that dialog. A bunch of elements,
      set-and-forget material IMO, were packed into a popup menu triggered by
      the new Options button. Makes for a clearer interface, and the stuff you
      need most of the time, the button lists, even got more space now.
    ! While on 200% DPI I fixed a bunch of other glitches that spoiled the
      experience.
    ! Raw View: Wrong line parsing with files that were mixed DOS/UNIX.
      Fixed.
    % Raw View: The above fix also made the Raw View faster for ASCII files.

    + Scripting got a new function.

      Syntax: favs([type=d|f], [items], [separator=CRLF], [action=a|p|s|d)
        type: Specifies which favorites list.

              f = Files

                s = Set/Replace current list.
                d = Delete from current list.
        return: The list of current favorites for the specified type (before any change).
      Examples:
        text favs('f'); // return the current list of favorite files

v17.50.0222 - 2017-02-19 17:28
    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: LoadSettings
      Action: Restarts XYplorer with different settings.
      Syntax: loadsettings path, [flags]
        path: Path of new settings. Can be:
              - INI file base only: "new" [defaults to "<xydata>\new.ini"]
              - INI file only: "new.ini" [defaults to "<xydata>\new.ini"]
              - path to new appdata: "E:\path" [defaults to "E:\path\XYplorer.ini"]
              - path to new appdata plus INI file: "E:\path\new.ini"
        flags: (bit field)
                  1 = Keep current instance open (else it's closed).
                      Works even if this is OFF: Configuration | Startup & Exit | Allow multiple instances
      Remarks:
        - Contrary to "File | Settings Special | Load Configuration..." (which
          only loads a new INI file) SC LoadSettings can set a new appdata path.
          This means it can load a whole different set of settings (Catalog,
          Tags, Keyboard Shortcuts, Tabsets, etc).
          This makes it a pretty powerful cool new command!
      Examples:
        - Load just new INI file:
          loadsettings "new.ini"; //INI file <"xydata>\new.ini"
          loadsettings "new";     //same as above (extension defaults to *.ini)
        - If the path is included this path will be the new appdata path:
          loadsettings "E:\XYplorer\appdata_screenshots\";  //default to "XYplorer.ini" in new appdata path
          loadsettings "E:\XYplorer\appdata_screenshots";   //IF the path exists: same as above
                                                            //If NOT: load "E:\XYplorer\appdata_screenshots.ini"
          loadsettings "E:\XYplorer\appdata_screenshots\new.ini"; //"new.ini" in new appdata path
        - Keeping the current instance open:
          loadsettings "E:\XYplorer\appdata_screenshots\", 1;
          loadsettings <curpath>, 1;
    ! List: Incorrect vertical scrollbar behaviour with huge lists ( > 32767
      items). Fixed.

v17.50.0219 - 2017-02-18 18:08
    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: OpenCommandPrompt
      Action: Opens a command prompt.
      Syntax: opencommandprompt [path], [command], [title], [flags]
        path:     The initial path for the command prompt.
                  Defaults to the current list path.
        command:  The command to execute. Should be prefixed with /k.
        title:    The window title.
                  Defaults to "<path> - Original location of this command prompt"
        flags: (bit field)
                  1 = Elevate (open as admin).
                      Only makes a difference if XYplorer itself is not elevated. Else it is ignored.
                      If it is not ignored then arguments "command" and "title"
                      are ignored, i.e. they are not supported if the prompt is
                      being elevated.
    Remarks:
      - This command can be improved later. Takes this as a first draft...
    Examples:
      opencommandprompt;
      opencommandprompt , "/k dir";
      opencommandprompt "C:\";
      opencommandprompt "C:\", 3:=1;  //elevate (using numbered argument syntax)
      opencommandprompt "C:\", "/k dir";

v17.50.0218 - 2017-02-16 18:17
    * SC tagitems: Now the itemlist argument suppports CRLF as primary
      separator. If CRLF is not present, then | is used (if present).
    + SC tagitems: Added a "flags" parameter with currently one value (1) by
      which you can control what is returned by the function.
      Syntax: tagitems([field], [value], [itemlist], [flags])
        flags: (bit field)
              1 = Return tags of all passed/selected items.
                  Else only or the first/focused item is returned.
                  The separator
                  ... is | when no itemlist is passed.
                  ... is | when itemlist is separated by |.
                  ... is CRLF when itemlist is separated by CRLF.
      Examples:
        - Return the tags of all selected items, separated by |:
          text tagitems("tags", , , 1);
        - Return the tags of all selected items, separated by |: 
          text tagitems("tags",  , "E:\Test\Boy.jpg|E:\Test\Cow.jpg", 1);
        - Return the tags of all selected items, separated by CRLF: 
          text tagitems("tags",  , "E:\Test\Boy.jpg<crlf>E:\Test\Cow.jpg", 1);

    + Scripting got a new function.
      Name:   SearchTemplate
      Action: Save or load Find Files settings to/from a search template.
      Syntax: searchtemplate(name, [mode="load"], [flags=0])
        name: Template name
              - All characters allowed
              - Auto-converted to a valid filename in this location:
                <xydata>\FindTemplates\<name>.ini
              OR:
              Full path/file name in any location you want. 
        mode:
              load =  [default] Load template. See flags below.
              save =  Save current Find Files settings to template. Use flags 1
                      to also save the current search results (if any).
        flags: (bit field)
              1 = cache results (on load this flag logically implies flags 2+4+8)
              2 = use stored location (on load only)
              4 = use exclude folders (on load only)
              8 = run search at once (on load only)
      Remarks:
        - Any existing template of the same name is overwritten without questions.
      Examples:
        - Save current search to "test":
          searchtemplate("test", "save");
        - Save current search to "test", store the search results as well:
          searchtemplate("test", "save", 1);
        - Load search in original location, use exclude folders, run at once:
          searchtemplate("test", , 14);
        - Load cached results (logically implies: use original location, use
          exclude folders, run at once):
