Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v20.60.0211 - 2019-12-10 21:06
    + Catalog: Added tweak CatalogFlags (bit field):
        Value   Function
        1       Auto-optimize the Catalog, i.e. auto-collapse non-current categories.
                (was previously tweak AutoOptimizeCatalog)
        2       Suppress overlays for Catalog items with "Action on click" set to 
                anything other than "Go to Location".
                (was previously tweak CatalogNoActionOverlays)
        4       Resolve XY native and environment variables in the caption.
                (NEW)
      Example:
        CatalogFlags=7        //all of the above functions (1+2+4)
    - Removed tweak AutoOptimizeCatalog from v9.90.0515 - 2011-03-22 22:28.
      It's now part of the new tweak CatalogFlags.
    - Removed tweak CatalogNoActionOverlays from v10.10.0008 - 2011-07-27 14:09.
      It's now part of the new tweak CatalogFlags.
    + Open Throw Away Clone: Added a little pro trick: Hold CTRL while clicking 
      the command to open a fresh instance in the current path. So it's the same 
      as runnning the script "freshhere;".
    ! Rename in List: Yesterday's change was not perfect yet. 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.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v20.60.0210 - 2019-12-09 19:25
    + Network: Added support for WSL. Now "\\wsl$" is accepted as valid server 
      name (normally "$" is not a valid character for servers).
    * Rename in List: Now when rename fails, e.g. because the file is in use, 
      you will be brought back to the rename box after the error message is 
      OK-ed. That way you don't lose the changes you tried to make.
    + SC popupmenu / popupnested: Now you can use *.<DIR> as a pseudo extension 
      for folders in the icon slot, i.e. you can use it to show the generic 
      folder icon. Example:
        echo popupmenu("Something with Folder Icon;Now *.<DIR> shows the folder icon.;*.<DIR>");

Code: Select all

v20.60.0209 - 2019-12-07 15:47
    + Scripting: Now the parser recognizes the common prefix 0b for binary 
      values. Supported are up to 4 bytes per number, i.e. 32 binary digits. 
      Here for some examples:
        echo 0b0; //0
        echo 0b1; //1
        echo 0b11; //3
        echo 0b10000000; //128
        echo 0b11111111; //255
        echo 0b100000000; //256
        echo 0b00000000000000000000000000000001; //1
        echo 0b10000000000000000000000000000000; //-2147483648
        echo 0b11111111111111111111111111111111; //-1
      The following are examples for invalid binary strings; they are returned 
      unresolved:
        echo 0b2;           //0b2 (invalid value)
        echo 0b;            //0b  (no value)
        echo 0B1;           //0B1 (wrong prefix)
        echo 0b110000000000000000000000000000000; //0b110000000000000000000000000000000 (too many characters)
        echo "0b1";         //0b1 (quoted)
    + SC inputselect enhanced: Now you can use the Edit Text font in the list, 
      just pass bit 16384 (2^14 = 0b100000000000000) in the style argument.
      Syntax: inputselect(header, listdata, [separator="|"], [style=1], _
                  [cancel], [width=800], [height=400], [windowcaption], [preselect])
        style: 
         16384 = Use Edit Text font (instead of the default Buttons and Labels font).
      Examples:
        text inputselect("Test", listfolder(), , 1);          // Buttons and Labels font
        text inputselect("Test", listfolder(), , 1 + 16384);  // Edit Text font
        text inputselect("Test", listfolder(), , 0b100000000000001);  // Edit Text font (binary number)
    * Configuration | General | Safety Belts, Network | Network | Fast network 
      enumeration: Now OFF by factory default on *any* Windows version. Before, 
      it was turned ON if older than Win10.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

    * User-defined Preview Handlers: The new wildcard extensions weren't fully
      case-insensitive. Now they are.
    ! MLS: A label in the Date Picker dialog did not work alright in Russian 
      (and probably other languages based on a codepage). Fixed.
    ! In higher DPI settings certain buttons in certain message boxes were drawn 
      not wide enough. Fixed.
    ! Locked Tree: There could be a temporary freeze when switching to a network 
      tab (UNC) whose server is not part of the locked tree. Fixed.

v20.60.0205 - 2019-12-04 21:22
    + User-defined Preview Handlers: Now you can have wildcards in the extension 
      part of an entry to match whole families of items. To mark an extension as 
      wildcarded extension prefix it with * (asterisk); this * is not part of 
      the actual pattern but just the marker.
      Fictitious examples:
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        Pattern                                         Matches
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        *ab?>{1B1E92F5-AC8E-4DAB-9804-3C01AA112F17}     "ab" plus one other character
        *??{2B1E92F5-AC8E-4DAB-9804-3C01AA112F17}       any two characters
        *###{2B1E92F5-AC8E-4DAB-9804-3C01AA112F17}      three digits
        *3##{2B1E92F5-AC8E-4DAB-9804-3C01AA112F17}      all numbers from 300 to 399
        3##{2B1E92F5-AC8E-4DAB-9804-3C01AA112F17}       3## (# not treated as wildcard)
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    + SC echo: Added alias "e" to this command because the it's often used and 
      I'm tired oy typing "echo".

v20.60.0202 - 2019-12-03 18:15
    + Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | 64-bit Windows: Added option 
      "Fallback to IFilters of the other bitness". Before (since v20.40.0023 - 
      2019-10-02 17:52), this was the hard-coded behavior, but it obviously 
      slows down the search so it's a good idea to make it optional.
      If ticked then if the IFilters of the first tried bitness return nothing 
      the IFilters of the other bitness are tried as a fallback strategy.      
      Note that if ticked then the option "Use 64-bit IFilters" controls which 
      IFilters are tried first. If "Use 64-bit IFilters" is unticked then 32-bit 
      IFilters are tried first.

      would not see the icon in that case).

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v20.60.0107 - 2019-12-01 13:04
    * History Popup Menus (Toolbar, Breadcrumb, Tab): Removed those serial 
      numbers in front of each menu item. Too much pointless information.
      If you still want to have them here is a new tweak:
        HistoryShowNumbersInMenu=1
    * Cut and Paste: Reverted this change from v18.90.0002 - 2018-03-23 10:46:
        Now the clipboard is not automatically cleared anymore after cut and 
        paste.
      Reason: Clearing the clipboard is the expected behavior. If you want to 
      preserve it you can use this tweak now:
        ClipboardPreserveAfterCutPaste=1
    ! Configuration | General | Startup & Exit | Permanent startup path: The 
      recent fix (v20.60.0105) had some undesired side-effect. Fixed again.
    ! Overwrite Existing Item dialog: Height was wrongly caclulated in higher 
      DPI settings probably since 20191102. Fixed.

    ! List: Drawing glitch on startup on custom-back-colored list on certain

    ! Configuration | General | Startup & Exit | Permanent startup path: If a 
      permanent startup path was defined and applied and "Include 
      most-recently-used lists on save" was turned off or did not include 
      "History" then on startup the previous startup path was added to history 
      before going to the permanent startup path, so you had an undesired small 
      history on startup. Fixed.
