Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v17.20.0100 - 2016-09-28 21:00
    = MAINTENANCE RELEASE.
  +++ Minor bug fixes and enhancements.

v17.20.0033 - 2016-09-28 20:15 - unpublished
    ! Variables: The <file> variable was not resolved when found within quotes.
      Fixed.
      FYI, that fix means you now can do this cool Quick Search by contents
      (where the contents are read from another file). The quotes are needed for
      correct parsing of the switche(s), else a "/" within the contents could
      spoil it.
        ?/contents="<file E:\Test\content search\switch\Needle-Bad.txt>"

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.

    + SC obfuscate: Now you can pass strings with basic wildcards (*, ?).
      Examples:
        obfuscate, , "Yamaha*"; //will completely obfuscate "Yamaha YZR500.png"
        obfuscate, , "*.jpg";   //will completely obfuscate all JPGs
    ! SC obfuscate: Visual Filters in tab captions were not yet obfuscated. Fixed.   
    ! SC getpathcomponent (gpc): Component "parent" returned the item itself
      when there was no parent. Fixed. Example:
        echo getpathcomponent("y.txt", "parent");    // "" (empty)   
    ! Wipe: Stopping Wipe by ESC did not work correctly since v17.20.0004 -
      2016-09-26 21:12. Fixed.

Code: Select all
v17.20.0030 - 2016-09-27 21:02
    * Locked Tree: Now when you collapse the parent of the current node the
      current folder will remain the same. Before, the parent folder became the
      new current folder (which still and rightfully happens with an unlocked
      tree).
      The new behavior is okay, or even expected, because the Locked Tree may be
      out of perfect synch with the List. It's its very nature.
      FYI, this behavior had also been introduced in v16.20.0005 - 2016-01-21
      20:26, but later removed because there were some bugs related to it. These
      bugs are now fixed.
    ! Locked Tree: Still a drawing glitch possible with Tree Path Tracing when
      collapsing a node. Fixed.
    ! Portable Devices: On Win10 the automatic refresh on plug in/out did not
      work. Fixed.
  !!! Portable Devices: Crash when starting the app with certain portable
      devices plugged in (e.g. iPhone 6, Nexus 4, Nexus 10). Fixed.

    + Tweak TabReuseTabs: Now it's a bit field. Value 2 (via Tree) is new.
        TabReuseTabs=...
        1:  Re-use existing tabs when changing locations through
            Favorite Folders, Favorite Files, Special System Folders, Hotlist,
            Recent Locations, or Catalog.
        2:  Re-use existing tabs when changing locations via Tree.
        3:  Both.
    * App exit: Now when you attempt to exit the app while some operation is not
      yet finished you are prompted whether you want to abort the ongoing
      operation or let it continue.
      Before, the operation was aborted without questions.
    * Wipe: Now the Status Bar shows real time file by file progress of the
      ongoing wipe operation.
    ! Locked Tree: Drawing glitch with Tree Path Tracing when you opened a node
      in the tree that made the current path visible. Fixed. Now the "snake" is
      redrawn to include the full current path.

v17.20.0003 - 2016-09-24 18:45
    + Backup / Custom Copy Configuration: Added option "Ask before merging
      folders". If checked then you are asked before any of the folders you are
      copying or moving are merged with same-named folders in the target
      location.
      Notes:
      - The setting is ignored if "Rename folders on collision" is ticked! In
        that case no merging can happen anyway.
      - The "Merge Folder?" prompt is popped for each folder to be merged
        (unless you tick "Do this also for the next cases" before pressing OK or
        Skip).
      - All "Merge Folder?" prompts are popped before any files are moved or
        copied.
      - Factory default for Backup is OFF, for Custom Copy it's ON.
    * List, Tree, Catalog: Before, input focus attributes (selected items
      highlight color, dotted focus line) remained active when the app lost
      focus because another app moved to the foreground, so XY still *appeared*
      to be in focus while it was not. Now the expected "non-focused" attributes
      are set as long as the app is in the background.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0090.
    * Tweak TPTWidth: Improved the drawing of the first level vertical snake.
      Now it's always visible.

v17.20.0001 - 2016-09-21 09:39
    + Single File Search: Now, experimentally, paths with *forward* slashes are
      supported as well.
    > TIP: The Breadcrumb Bar's right-click menu command "Paste and Search"
      nicely connects with Single File Search. You just need the full path to
      something in the clipboard.
    * Backup, Custom Copy: The progress dialog now shows the number skipped
      bytes in real time. Before, it was shown only when the whole job was done.
    * Scripting: Multi-script menu captions were cut (ellipsed) at 40
      characters. Now they are cut at 256 characters.
    * Tree: When hovering a collapsed tree node longer than 0.8 seconds that
      node automatically expands. From now on, this only happens when you hover
      the expansion icon, the folder icon, or the folder caption, but not on any
      other part of the node row. This gives you a little more control.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.81.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.81.lng is uploaded.
        You will be notified if you have subscribed to this thread:
        https://www.xyplorer.com/xyfc/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=9648
    ! Visual Filter: When toggling a normal or Global Visual Filter the current
      item was still not kept in view in any list view with more than one item
      per row. Fixed.

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

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

Code: Select all
v17.20.0000 - 2016-09-19 15:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Single File Search. Quickly list a single file at any given location
      without tediously expanding the folder tree and browsing the whole
      directory first. It's like a wormhole to any point in your file system.
  +++ Type Stats and Filter. Lost track of what you have selected? Type Stats
      gives you the numbers. Filter lets you narrow things down.
  +++ Custom Copy. Now you have a Retry button in case of failure. There's
      always a second chance.
  +++ Custom Vorbis Tags. Now you can display, search, or color code whatever
      custom tags you might expect in your FLAC and OGG files.
  +++ Audio Tags. Now the Composer tag in Vorbis Comments (FLAC and OGG) is
      natively supported additionally to Album, Artist, Comments, Composer,
      Genre, Title, Track, and Year.

    * Updated the help file.
    * Safety Belts: Changed buttons from Yes/No to OK/Cancel).

    * View | Tab | Type Stats and Filter...: From now on, the command display
      the Type Stats of the *selected items* if there are two or more
      selections. The stats would be pointless for only one selection, and the
      presence of exactly one selection is very common.
    * View | Tab | Type Stats and Filter...: From now on, also folders are
      listed in the stats.
    * Tabs: Now "Single File Search: [pattern]" is shown in the tooltips of such
      tabs.
    ! Single File Search: Fixed a couple of bugs.
    ! Configuration | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Safety Belts | Confirm delete
      operations: When enabled the SHIFT+Delete would not bypass the Recycle Bin
      in various contexts. Fixed. Now the state of SHIFT is logged before the
      delete confirmation pops up.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v17.10.0005 - 2016-09-15 17:54
    + List | Search Results (Find Files): Now an information bar (in Carolina
      blue) is optionally displayed for the results of Find Files. Up to now
      such a bar could only be displayed for Quick Search results.
      The bar displays the current Name pattern. Double-click the bar to remove
      the search. Right-click the bar for further options.
    * List | Search Results (Quick Search): Changed the color of the optional
      information bar to something less crass.
    * Configuration | Find Files & Branch View | Find Files | Show quick search
      information in list: Renamed to "Show search information in list". It now
      controls both Quick Search and Search (Find Files).
    + Single File Search: Now basic wildcards (*, ?) are allowed in the last
      component of the specified path/file. Note that in this case more than one
      result might be returned (although it's called Single File Search).
      For example, this will probably just find notepad.exe:
        C:\Windows\System32\Not*
      This will find all matching DLL files:
        C:\Windows\System32\na*.dll
      This will list all JPGs in a certain network location:
        \\VEGA\Users\Donald\Pictures\*.jpg
      List all items in E:\ (non-recursive; kind of treeless browsing):
        E:\*
      Tip: Remember that Single File Search does not recurse subfolders. This is
      also true with wildcards in the pattern.

:!: Note that BETA versions are work in progress and might contain fresh bugs. You have been warned.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v17.10.0004 - 2016-09-14 21:56
  +++ Single File Search: Sometimes you just want to see one particular file in
      the list, to check out its properties, preview it, or drag it somewhere.
      You don't care for the other thousands of files that exist in the same
      location, they just distract you and listing them wastes your precious
      time and adds to global warming.
      Time for the revolutionary Single File Search: Simply enter the full
      path of the file or folder you want to see into the Quick Search
      interface, or -- prefixed with a "?" -- into the Address Bar, or into the
      Name field on the Find Files tab, and run the search. You will see your
      file within a very short time, and in splendid isolation.
      Notes:
      - The current location is completely ignored in this search. And when
        using the Find Files interface all other filters are ignored as well.
      - The current location and bread crumb does not adjust to the path of the
        searched item. So the whole operation is pretty isolated from the rest
        of the interface.
      - The Tree does not change at all.
      - Single File Search does not recurse subfolders.
      - In Address Bar and Quick Search also XYplorer native variables are
        supported.
      Examples for Quick Search (F3):
        C:\Windows\System32\imageres.dll
        <xypath>\XYplorer.exe

To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

    + Toolbar | Edit Clipboard: The button tooltip now also reports the

    * Scripting | Foreach: Now passing an empty separator will tokenize the
      ListOfTokens by letter. Before, it returned the whole string as one token.
      Example:
        ::$string='string'; foreach($letter, $string, ''){ echo $letter; }
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0089.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v17.10.0002 - 2016-09-11 21:53
  *** Configuration | Previewed Formats | Category: Replaced category "Audio &
      Video Files" with two separate categories "Audio Files" and "Video Files".
      Gives you more control on what is previewed, and also on Generic File
      Types like {:Audio} and {:Video}.
      For example you now can easily remove MP4 from the Audio Files.
      Three *** because this little change was a LOT of work under the hood. :)
    + Configuration | Preview: Added "Preview delay" where you can enter the
      number of milliseconds that a preview is delayed after a file has been
      selected. This should make it a nicer experience to walk through a
      directory while the Preview tab or the Preview Pane is open.
      - If you press ESC during the delay or hold ESC while selecting the file
        the preview will not happen at all.
      - The setting has no effect on the Floating Preview.
      - This setting has been available as tweak PreviewDelayMsecs since
        v15.90.0021 - 2015-11-09 17:20.
    + Vorbis Comments: Added "Composer" to the fixed set of comments that are
      automatically retrieved from every supported audio file. This means that
      "Composer" is now also retrieved for MP3 files, and it's shown in the
      audio file info tip. It also means that it's retrieved faster.
    + Special Property Columns: Added "Tag Composer". It really was missing
      there, and in my personal opinion composers can use all appreciation they
      can get nowadays, and if it's only their own column. So, no more need for
      a scripted column to see the composer.
    * SC runret enhanced: Now it can return the exit code of the process.
      Syntax: runret(command, [directory], [codepage], [flags])
        flags: (bit field)
          2 = Return the exit code of the process.
    * Configuration | Preview | Rename preview | Preview all Rename Special
      operations: Moved the setting to Configuration | Sort and Rename | Rename.
      Was totally misplaced.
    ! Mini Tree: Target node was not always refreshed in backgrounded
      intra-volume moves. Fixed.
    ! SC tag: Removing all tags did not work. Fixed.
        tag , , 1, 2; //remove all tags from all selected items
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.80.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.80.lng is uploaded.
