    % List: Now deleting items from long lists is *much* faster than before 
      because it does not involve refilling the whole list from scratch anymore. 
      Especially with slow columns (e.g. Image Hash) the difference will be very 
      notable.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v20.70.0018 - 2020-02-10 14:24
    + Live Filter Box: Added tweak to allow extended pattern matching: ! for 
      Boolean Not, and # for digits.
        VFExtendedPatternMatching=1
      You can escape the ! by putting a \ before it.
      Examples:
        sweet     match anything sweet
        !sweet    match anything not sweet
        \!sweet   match anything !sweet
      Remark:
        Later this setting will apply to Visual Filter and Live Filter (just 
        like Configuration | Find and Filter | Filters & Type Ahead Find | 
        Visual Filters | Ignore diacritics), hence the name 
        VFExtendedPatternMatching. For now, the tweak only applies to the Live 
        Filter, while the Visual Filter remains hard-coded to allow extended 
        pattern matching.
    * View | Refresh (F5): From now on the List only is refreshed when the focus 
      is in the list. Before, this command always refreshed Tree and List 
      regardless of the focus.
      To return to the old behavior you can use this tweak:
        RefreshListOnly=0
    ! Full Row Select: Clicking the green click-trigger buttons in Custom 
      Columns did not work, nor ticking checkboxes in Extra Columns. Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

    ! Scripting: A script was not parsed correctly when you used a radical 
      HEREDOC syntax and then had an include statement below it. Fixed.
    ! Tags: Under certain conditions getting folder sizes was unnecessarily 
      triggered when tagging a file. Fixed.

    * Thumbnails: Now when you try to switch tab or pane while thumbnails are 
      being created the creation will be stopped and you have to repeat the 
      attempt to make it happen.
    ! Custom Copy: Maximizing the dialog lead to a crash. Fixed. Removed the 
      Maximize button.
    ! Custom Copy: Changes in the dialog size and position of the overwrite 
      prompt were not remembered anymore since 20190217. Fixed.
