Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v21.30.0005 - 2020-11-30 13:17
    + Custom Event Actions (CEA): Now you can run or load a script at the event 
      of browsing to a new folder. Note that there is no action when the current 
      folder is rebrowsed, i.e. refreshed.
      Like all CEAs, it is currently only implemented as a tweak.
      Example for the tweaked INI file:
        ; Tweak: 0=None, 1=Before Browse, 2=After Browse, 3=Both
        CEA_OnBrowseScript=1
        CEA_OnBrowseScript_Script=echo "Hi!"
      You would probably use a script that loads some script file that does 
      some interesting things. This would load "AfterBrowse.xys" (located in the 
      Scripts subfolder of the app data folder) after browsing a folder:
        CEA_OnBrowseScript=2
        CEA_OnBrowseScript_Script=load "AfterBrowse"
      To do something useful the script should know about the new path. You can 
      refer to it by the new variable <newpath>. It will return the full new 
      path, without trailing backslash. For example:
        CEA_OnBrowseScript=1
        CEA_OnBrowseScript_Script=echo "Going to <newpath>."
      If you want to call one script before and another script after the browse 
      you can pass 2 scripts separated by "||":
        CEA_OnBrowseScript=3
        CEA_OnBrowseScript_Script=echo "Going to <newpath>."||echo "Went to <newpath>."
    ! Folder Contents Preview: The width of the popup was a little too wide 
      sometimes. Fixed.
    > Added three events to the debug log conc. multi-monitor systems.
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.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v21.30.0004 - 2020-11-29 14:45
    + Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Rename | Hide extensions from 
      rename edit box: Now you can also (additionally to the Right key) press the 
      End key to "move" the extension into the rename box.
      So, to quickly rename the extension while "Hide extensions from rename 
      edit box" is enabled you press the sequence F2 - End - End.
    + Autosize Columns: By default Autosize Columns will not set it on lists 
      with more than 32767 items. Reason: It takes time, so there should be a 
      limit. Now, however, there is a tweak by which you can define that limit 
      yourself:
        AutosizeColumnsMaxNumber=100000
      If set to 0 the default is used (32767).
      If set to -1 there is no limit at all.
    * Find Files and Quick Search: The /p=[depth] works a little different now. 
      If there are no folder in relative level 5 than nothing is returned:
        *.jpg /p=5
      Before, it would return the folder o the highest available level.
    ! Find Files and Quick Search: The /x=[depth] still did not work correctly. 
      Fixed.
    ! Tools | Customize List | Hide Extensions: If the Hide Extensions was set 
      the extension in the rename box didn't appear even if the option "Hide 
      extensions from rename edit box" was unticked. Fixed.

    + Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up | Mouse Up on Folder Icons | 
      Folder contents preview: Added "Sorted by". So now you have some control 
      over the sorting in the Folder Contents Preview (incl. the Hover Box on 
      folders).
        Name      = Name, ascending
        Modified  = Modified date, descending
        Created   = Created date, descending
        Accessed  = Accessed date, descending
    + Hover Box: While the Hover Box is showing for a folder, you can cycle the 
      sort order by pressing the "O" (letter o) key.      
    ! Find Files and Quick Search: The /x=[depth] did not work yet correctly. 
      Tried a fix.

    * Find Files and Quick Search: Now the depth in the switches /p=[depth] 
      (return the parent folders of all matching items) and /x=[depth] (return 
      all folders that don't contain any matching items) is not relative to the 
      absolute root of the path anymore but relative to the search path.
    ! Customize Toolbar: Zoom preview did not work correctly for custom icons on 
      Small and on Extra Large buttons. Fixed.

v21.30.0001 - 2020-11-25 12:54
    + Custom Copy: The recently added tweak CustomCopyForceProgressFromBytes to 
      define a bytes threshold for showing a progress dialog that would not be 
      shown for smaller byte counts does NOT apply to intra-volume move anymore 
      since they are always totally fast.
      So the threshold now applies only to duplications.

    * Toolbar: Made the overflow symbol (right end of the bar when there are 
      more buttons than space) adapt to the button size, so now it grows with the 
      buttons.
    * Updated the help file.
    ! Dark Mode: Since v21.10.0028 - 2020-10-01 12:25 switching Dark/Light Mode 
      would cause a little flicker that was not there before. Fixed.

    * List: Made the sort symbols (ascending/descending) adapt to the font size, 
      so now they grow with the font. They are also now drawn in an anti-aliased 
      way (less pixely).
    % Changed the setting of a fundamental compiler constant ("Assuming No 
      Alias" => TRUE) that should make the app a tiny bit faster in a very 
      general way. Why didn't I do this before? Well, I tried that years ago but 
      it would not compile. Now I tried again and it worked! So something in the 
      code made it more digestible to the compiler.
