v18.40.0002 - 2017-09-21 18:58
    ! File Lengths: The last fix did not cut it. Actually the problem had
      nothing to do with TIB files but with all files of similar sizes (> 2 GB)
      since 20170914. Now really fixed.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0114.
    ! Lock Home Zone: The lock didn't stay in the zone when the new folder name
      was a partial match of the home folder name. 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.

v18.40.0001 - 2017-09-21 16:14
  +++ Toolbar: Now you can have captions with the buttons. Toggle them in Tools
      | Customize Toolbar | Options | Show Button Captions.
      The captions are printed in font size 8.25, and the buttons are widened by
      50 pixels to make space for the text. Still many longer captions won't fit
      completely and you will see ellipses. If you don't like that read on:
      By default you get one caption line. You can get more by tweaking, e.g.:
        ToolbarCaptionLines=2   (legal values: 1 to 4)
    > Tip: If you opt for captions is recommendable to also tick "Scrollable
      Toolbar" else many buttons can only be reached via the overflow popup at
      the right end of the toolbar.
  +++ Toolbar: Totally rewrote the drawing of the toolbar. The default style
      (now called "XYplorer Classic") is flatter (no gradients anymore) and IMO
      clearer. And you get an alternative style (see next paragraph).
    + Tools | Customize Toolbar: Now can configure the theme used to draw the
      main toolbar. The Options button's popup menu features these new items:
      - XYplorer Classic (factory default)
      - Windows Themes
    * Tools | Customize Toolbar | Options: Renamed "Toolbar can be Scrolled" to
      "Scrollable Toolbar".
    * You now can close the app while folder sizes are still being calculated.
      Before, you got a message "Abort Unfinished Operations?".
    ! Scripting | Load Selected Script File: Did not decode BOM-less
      UTF8-encoded script files when "Configuration | Preview | Text preview |
      UTF-8 auto-detection" was ON. Fixed.
    ! Scripting: In a two-item multi-script where the 2nd script was made
      invisible by a prefixed underscore, the 2nd script was executed instead of
      the first. Fixed.
    ! Locked Tabs: Overwriting the lock by holding Ctrl+Alt while selecting the
      new location (e.g. in Tree or in Breadcrumb, or via history Back) did not
      work anymore. Fixed.
    ! File Lengths: Since 20170914 an optimized mechanism to determine file
      lengths has been implemented. However, it turns out that this mechanism
      does not work correctly for TIB files (Acronis True Image Backup Archive).
      Total mystery why that is, but now it's handled correctly for TIB files
      too. Fixed.

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

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

Code: Select all

v18.40.0000 - 2017-09-18 20:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Sync Folders. Finally XYplorer lets you synchronize two folders. It's a
      one-way sync, also known as mirror sync: The target folder is made to be
      like the source folder. Now it's just a toolbar button away.
      Advanced Users: Scripting support lets you create buttons or batches for
      frequently recurring sync tasks.
  +++ Time Stamping. Now you can easily "touch" files (set the filetime to now)
      via the context menu.
  +++ Know Your Clipboard. The Paste toolbar button now shows what's in the
      clipboard, i.e. the stuff that will be pasted if you click the button.
  +++ Backup Speed. Backup operations are much faster now when most items are
      skipped, which is the common case in large incremental backups.

    + Configuration | File Info Tips | Show image info and preview: Now you can
      logically invert this setting by holding CTRL while you hover the file.
      Lets you force a File Info Tip over a Hover Box and vice versa.
    ! Full Screen Preview: Does not always cover the taskbar in Win 10. Try fix.
    ! Custom Copy, Backup: Skip Junctions was ignored for any
      junctions immediately among the selected folders (it was only honored for
      any junctions inside the selected folders).
    ! Sync Folders: Skip Junctions was ignored for any junctions among the
      immediate child folders (it was only honored for any junctions inside the
      child folders).
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0112.
    ! Floating Preview: Since 20160522(!) files that could not be previewed in
      any better way would not be shown in hex view anymore. Fixed.
    - Live Filter Box: Undid the following change (v17.90.0003 - 2017-04-08
      10:55). If the focused list item is not selected then pressing Space
      should by all means select it.
      * 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.
    ! Titlebar Template and Quick Search: The <folder> variable was wrongly
      resolved. Fixed.

    + Toolbar | Paste: Just like the "Edit Clipboard" button the "Paste" button
      now serves as a quick and basic clipboard viewer when you hover it. It
      shows text and file items contained in the clipboard (cropped after 2048
      characters, or after 32 lines, whatever comes sooner), i.e. the stuff that
      will be pasted íf you click the button.
    + SC msg enhanced. Now you can specify the icon.
      Syntax: msg text, [buttons_icons], [linebreaker="<br>"]
        buttons_icons: (bit field)
          Defines what buttons and icons to show in the dialog: 
          0: [Default] Only one button, "Ok".
          1: Two buttons, "Ok" and "Cancel".
             When you press "Cancel", the script execution will end there
             (useful for confirmations).
          16: Critical
          32: Question
          48: Exclamation (sic: 16 + 32, MS invented that)
          64: [Default] Information
      Example:
        msg "Exclamation with OK and Cancel!", 48 + 1;
    ! Configuration | Tags | Toggle tags by column click: Did not work for Tags
      and Comment if Full Row Select was enabled. Fixed.
    ! Auto-Refresh: The inactive pane was not refreshed when its folder was
      deleted in the active pane or in the tree. Fixed.

      in folders where all items were skipped. Fixed. Now all tags are copied
      even if all items were skipped.
    * Configuration | Tags | Copy tags on backup operations: This setting now
      also controls sync operations. Renamed it to "Copy tags on backup and sync
      operations".
    ! Copying tags (Copy, Backup, Sync): In copied subfolders tags were not
      removed from target item when the source item was completely without any
      tags. Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v18.30.0009 - 2017-09-11 20:35
    + Color Filters: Added a additional way to pre-filter the items that a are
      checked for matching a particular Color Filter. The new "filternot" keyword
      specifies a list of patterne that must not be matched.
      Note that "filternot" has to be in the 3rd section (separated by |) of the
      comment part (starts with //).
      Examples:
        Match all files created today:
          ageC f: d
        Match all files created today, located in branch E:\Test\:
          ageC f: d //|filter:E:\Test\*
        Match all files created today, located in branch E:\Test, but not JPGs or PNGs:
          ageC f: d //|filter:E:\Test\*|filternot:*jpg;*.png
        Match all files created today, but not JPGs or PNGs:
          ageC f: d //||filternot:*jpg;*.png
      Remarks:
      - All pre-filters are case-insensitive.
    % Color Filters: Color Filters using pre-filters are much faster now. They
      were fast already, so you will note this only with very large viewports
      (many items visible at one time) and/or slow machines and/or when you have
      lots of color filters.
    % Custom Copy / Sync Folders | Progress Dialog | Reports: Now the popup menu
      opens on mouse down, and you can select an item on the next mouse up.
      Saves a click.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0108.
    ! Sync Folders: Error when showing a report after the delete prompt was
      canceled. Fixed.
    ! Sync Folders: The confirmation prompt (Configuration | Menus, Mouse,
      Safety | Safety Belts | Confirm copy and move operations) showed "Unknown"
      instead of "Sync" or "Sync Folders". Fixed.

Code: Select all

v18.30.0007 - 2017-09-09 16:49
    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: ReThumb
      Action: Recreates image files from the thumbnails cache.
      Syntax: rethumb cachepath, cachetitle, targetpath, [flags]
        cachepath:  Location of cache files (dbits and dat2 file).
                    You find this path here:
                    Configuration | Thumbnails | Cache thumbnails on disk
        cachetitle: Title of the cache files pair (dbits and dat2 file; both are needed!).
                    It's always 32 character GUID, e.g. "fc2a2b5e9d46239340b1f1e88023bc32"
                    The file "XYThumbs.txt" in cachepath will help you to find
                    the right GUID. I kept this as a homework for you to ensure
                    this wonderful command comes with a satisfying degree of
                    nerdiness.
        targetpath: Target folder where the images files are to be created.
                    It's recommended to use an empty folder.
        flags: (bit field) 
                    1 = Overwrite prompt (when creating the image files).
                        Otherwise same-named files are overwritten without asking.
      Remarks:
        - The main use of this command is to retrieve thumbnail versions of
          any lost original image files from XYplorer's thumbnails cache.
        - Note that XYplorer's thumbnails cache can contain also older images
          that had been long removed from the original folder. So you should get
          all your lost images and maybe even some more.
        - Each found thumbnail is stored as a separate image file under the
          original file name.
        - Image files are all saved in PNG format to ensure a lossless quality.
        - The PNG extension is appended (in CAPS) to the original filename, e.g.:
            GLB-PAR31889_2048x.jpg.PNG
          This allows you to see how the original file was called.
      Example:
        rethumb "E:\XYThumbs", "fc2a2b5e9d46239340b1f1e88023bc32", "E:\Test\reThumbed";
    + Sync Folders Dialog: You now see in the title bar whether the dialog is
      called by script ("Script") or by GUI.
    * Sync Folders Dialog: Replaced the "Preview mode" checkbox by a "Preview" button.
    * SC sync: Removed the [preview] argument and changed the [flags] bit field
      to [switches] (using letters).
      Syntax: sync source, target, [copy_items], [on_collision], [delete_items], [switches], [logfile]
        switches: lower case letters in any order
          c = Show Sync Folders configuration dialog before start, initialized
              to the settings as passed with this command.
              Any subsequent changes to the settings in the dialog only affect
              *this* job. They do *not* affect the settings of the GUI Sync
              Folders function.
          k = Keep progress dialog open after job is completed.
              Note that the default (when no switches are passed) is now to NOT
              keep the dialog open.
          p = Preview Mode: Nothing actually happens, you just get a detailed
              report of what would happen in real mode.
              Note: When you also pass switch "c" then this flag is ignored
              apart from the fact that the Preview button is pre-focused. The
              button you choose decides whether it's a preview or the real
              thing.
          r = Reverse direction (target > source).
      Examples:
        sync "E:\Test\Sync\Source", "E:\Test\Sync\Target", 5:="c"; //show config
        sync "E:\Test\Sync\Source", "E:\Test\Sync\Target", 5:="p"; //preview mode
        sync "E:\Test\Sync\Source", "E:\Test\Sync\Target", 5:="k"; //keep progress open
        //copy, overwrite if newer; perm delete, no prompt; preview; config:
        sync "E:\Test\Sync\Source", "E:\Test\Sync\Target", 1, 0, 1, "cp";
        sync "E:\Test\Sync\Source", "E:\Test\Sync\Target", 6:="<xydata>\Log\Sync_<date yyyy-mm-dd>.txt"; //log
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0106.

      Name: Sync
      Action: Synchronizes two folders.
      Syntax: sync source, target, [copy_items], [on_collision], [delete_items], [preview], [flags], [logfile]
        source: Source folder.
        target: Target folder. The contents of this folder will be made identical
                to those of the source folder (depending on the other arguments).
        copy_items:
          0 = Do not copy any items to target.
          1 = Copy items to target.
          If missing the current setting in the Sync Folders configuration dialog is used.

          0 = Overwrite if newer
          1 = Overwrite if different size or date
          2 = Overwrite

        delete_items: (bit field) 
          1 = Delete items to target.

              report of what would happen in real mode.
          If missing the current setting in the Sync Folders configuration dialog is used.

        logfile:
          Optionally pass the name (full path/file, native and environment
          variables allowed) of a logfile to which the full report of the
          operation will be written when it's completed. If the file already
          exists then the report is appended to it.
          No logfile is written in Preview Mode.
      Examples:
        sync "E:\Test\Sync\Source", "E:\Test\Sync\Target", 6:=1; //show config
        sync "E:\Test\Sync\Source", "E:\Test\Sync\Target", 1, 0, 1, 1, 1; //perm delete, no prompt; preview; config
        sync "E:\Test\Sync\Source", "E:\Test\Sync\Target", 7:="<xydata>\Log\Sync_<date yyyy-mm-dd>.txt"; //log
    + Backup, Custom Copy/Move, Sync Folders: Revised the reporting. Now a "Full
      Report" (previously called "All Files") contains:
      - Processed files (new, overwrite, skip)
      - Created folders
      - Deleted items
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0105.
    + Time Stamping: The smart context menu of the menu columns
      (Ctrl+Right-click in the column) now features a "Touch" command for each
      of the three file dates. Use it to set the file date to the current
      date/time.
    ! Quick File View: Did not show the expected hex view for binary files
      anymore since 20170822. 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.

Re: Here's the new BETA

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v18.30.0002 - 2017-09-07 12:31
  +++ Added Sync Folders, available here:
      - Menu command: Panes | Sync Folders...
      - Toolbar Button: Sync Folders
      - Scripting: SC sync (description coming later).
      It's a one-way sync, aka mirror sync. After the operation the target
      folder will be identical to the source folder (depending on the
      configuration). This is achieved by the following sub operations:
      - Items that are only in source are copied to target.
      - Items that are in source and target are overwritten in target.
      - Items that are only in target are deleted from target.
      Some properties can be configured (the Sync Folders Configuration dialog
      is shown invariably before every sync operation), and are remembered
      between calls and between sessions:
      - Copy items from source to target: Tick it to have any items copied at
        all. Otherwise there will be only deletions in the target.
        - On name collisions: Decide how to handle name collisions.
          - Ask
          - Overwrite if newer
          - Overwrite if different size or date
          - Overwrite
          - Skip
      - Delete items in target that have no matches in source: Tick it to get
        any deletions in target at all. Otherwise there will be only copying to
        the target.
        - Delete to recycle bin (if possible): Note that on UNC paths, on
          removable drives, and where the Recycle Bin is turned off by Windows
          settings all deletions will be permanent (not to Recycle Bin) even if
          the checkmark is set!
        - Prompt before delete: Highly recommended.
      - Preview mode: If ticked then nothing actually happens, you just get a
        detailed report of what would happen in real mode.
        Note: The Preview Mode assumes that everything works as planned (items
        to be deleted *can* be deleted, items to be overwritten *can* be
        overwritten). There is only one way to find out if it really works as
        planned.
      Some properties are hard-coded:
      - Preserve all item dates: YES
      - Skip junctions: YES
      - Safe overwrite: YES
      - Show progress dialog: YES
      - Keep progress dialog open: YES
        In the final progress dialog you can show a detailed report listing each
        file copied and each item deleted.
      Further Remarks:
      - Sync Folders does not support Undo/Redo (just like Backup). Pretty
        obvious since overwriting is the core element of it and this cannot be
        undone.
      - Sync Folders does not support Paper Folders.
      - Readonly files to be deleted will be deleted without extra asking.
      - Sync Folders is backgroundable and queueable.
        Cf. Configuration | File Operations | Background Processing | Enable background processing
        However, when triggered via SC sync it's always running in the
        foreground. Seems better for scripting.
      - BE CAREFUL! Sync Folders can really shake up the target folder.

    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0104.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.93.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.93.lng is uploaded.

    % Audio Properties: I could make retrieving audio properties much faster.
      This will be very notable when you use columns showing those properties.
      I did various things to achieve this. One of them (the most effective)
      involves that some properties might not be retrieved anymore for some
      files, e.g. the Bit Depth for MP3 files.
      To go back to the more complete but much slower previous way, you can use
      this new tweak:
        AudioPropsSecondTries=1
      FYI, it was this addition from v14.80.0236 - 2015-02-18 15:03 that added a
      lot of slowness in exchange for only very few gains:
      + Special Properties | Audio: Now the Windows canonical properties are
        exploited where XYplorer's own faster methods fail.
    ! Toolbar: Drawing glitch when scrolling the bar after increasing the button
      size in Touchscreen Mode. Fixed.
    + PDF Preview: Experimentally when you manually add PDF to Text Files (in
      Configuration | Previewed Formats | Categories) the PDF preview will now
      show the extracted text (if possible). Before, the raw bytes were shown.
