Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v18.10.0105 - 2017-07-22 12:33
    + Scripting got a new function.
      Name: AgeClasses
      Action: Sets or retrieves age class definitions.
      Syntax: ageclasses([definitions], [separator="|"])
        definitions:  New definitions, separated by separator.
                      Pass "" to reset to factory defaults.
                      Pass nothing to just retrieve the current definitions.
        separator:    Separator of definitions.
        return:       Current definitions (using separator if passed).
      Examples:
        ageclasses("d>79BB53//today|1 d>599B43//yesterday|11 d>9B5943//11 days ago");
        echo ageclasses(); //show current definitions (separated by |)
        text ageclasses(, <crlf>); //show current definitions (separated by CRLF)
    + Age Circles: Now you can right-click any Age Circle to pop a mini menu
      offering this toggle:
        - Show Age Graphics in Modified Column
      This corresponds to the AgeCirclesAtModified tweak.
      If you hold CTRL while right-clicking any Age Circle the menu gets an
      additional entry (hidden behind the extra CTRL because it's a little
      hardcore):
        - Customize Age Graphics...
      Here you can edit the age class definitions if you know how.
      Tip: Enter nothing to reset to factory defaults.
    ! Age Circles: If an item matched no class then a black circle was drawn.
      Now nothing is drawn.

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.

Code: Select all

v18.10.0104 - 2017-07-21 14:51
    * Age Circles: Completely rewritten from scratch. Now the syntax is like the
      one you already know from Color Filters. It gives you much better and
      easier ways to define the age classes (in case you don't like the factory
      default).
      General format:
        age>RRGGBB|age>RRGGBB|age>RRGGBB|...
      The factory default changed syntactically and also semantically. There are
      still 8 classes and now they look like this (line wrapped for easier reading):
        AgeCircleClasses3=
          < s>6BCAA9,b2//future |
          <= 5 n>DCF487//up to 5 min |
          <= 60 n>B7DC6F//up to 60 min |
          d>79BB53//today |
          w>D0AB63//this week |
          m>BE7C43//this month |
          y>866286//this year |
          > y>6D7277//last year or older
      Rules:
      - The definitions are processed left to right, first match wins. They
        compared with the Modified date of the item in question.
      - Remember: There must be a space between counter and unit ("1 d", not "1d").
      - There can be comments after //.
      - After the color you can state "b2": this will draw an unfilled circles
        with borderwidth 2 pixels.
      - Simply skip the RGB color value to opt for "Draw nothing", for example:
        > y>//last year or older
      - You can specify an "Else" case by stating * instead of an age:
        *>866286//this color for all remaining cases

Code: Select all

v18.10.0103 - 2017-07-20 15:11
    + Tweak to control where Age Circles are drawn in Details views:
        AgeCirclesAtModified=0  'in Name column
        AgeCirclesAtModified=1  'in Modified column
      Might later be added to Configuration.
    + Age Circles: Now hovering them pops the age tooltip.
    * Age Circles: Toggling them does not autosize the Name column anymore but
      just adds/removes the necessary space.
    * Age Circles: Now always drawn on a slightly larger white underground.
      Improves visual clarity in colored contexts.
    * Age Circles: Changed opacity to 100%. Makes color customization much
      easier since the results are now predictable. :)
    * Age Circles: Redefined the factory default colors accordingly, and
      improved the way the various ages are defined:
        AgeCircleClasses2=future:6BCAA9,0:DCF487,5n:B7DC6F,1h:79BB53,24h:D0AB63,7d:BE7C43,4w:866286,1y:6D7277
      For example, "1y:6D7277" means use color #6D7277 for items that are one
      year or older.
      Note that the key is now "AgeCircleClasses2" (2!).
      These factory defaults are now written to the INI-file on a virgin run.

v18.10.0102 - 2017-07-19 18:55
    + Age Circles: Now they are also shown in non-Details views, namely directly
      in front of icon and caption. Which makes them even more valuable since no
      other file date info is available in those views.
      Note: This does not work so well in all constellations, e.g. with very
      small thumbnails it's not really usable. I might find a solution later...
    * Age Circles: Experimentally Age Circles are now shown also in Details
      views directly in front of icon and caption. It's closer to the normal eye
      focus.
    * Age Circles: Changed elliptic form to circle. Nothing beats a circle.
    * List: The following commands are now toggles, i.e. if you call them and
      they are already on then they are toggled off.
        - Tools | Customize List | Size Column Format | Circles
        - Tools | Customize List | Size Column Format | Bars
        - Tools | Customize List | Date Column Format | Circles
      So now you can assign a single keyboard shortcut to any of those functions
      to toggle the feature on an off.
    > Note that this toggle functionality is suppressed when the command is
      called from a script, e.g.:
        #435;
      Reason: In scripts where we don't want state-dependent results.
    ! SC popupmenu/popupnested was partly broken since v18.10.0001. Fixed.
    ! List: Drawing glitch in the column headers when resizing columns in a
      scrolled "List" view. Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v18.10.0101 - 2017-07-18 22:18
  +++ List: Added so-called "Age Circles", little visual helpers that let you
      instantly grasp the rough age of a file. No more brain power wasted on
      deciphering date strings.
      This is achieved by encoding the age using colors. Coloring is borrowed
      from leafs (bright green = young, via darker greens, to brown = old),
      every person understands this intuitively, it's paleo-knowledge. Instead
      of circles I went for horizontal ellipses (vaguely suggestive of a leaf).
      By default there are 8 age classes (can be tweaked, see below):
        - younger than now (= future)
        - younger than five minutes
        - younger than one hour (60 mins)
        - younger than one day (24 hours)
        - younger than one week (7 days)
        - younger than one month (4 weeks)
        - younger than one year (365 days)
        - one year or older     
      Here you can turn the feature on and off (it's not a simple toggle because
      there is a good chance that more graphic or placement options are added
      later):
        - Tools | Customize List | Date Column Format | No Graphics
        - Tools | Customize List | Date Column Format | Circles
    + Tweak to customize the factory default age classes and colors.
      You can have as many classes as you want. Each class has this format:
        [from-age in minutes]:[color in RRGGBB]
      Classes are separated by a comma. Classes must be ordered ascending from
      youngest to oldest. Processing is from right to left (backwards).
      For example:
        AgeCircleClasses=100:FF0000,200:00FF00
      This would color all items green that are at least 200 minutes old, all
      items red that are at least 100 minutes old. All remaining items are
      colored black.
      Items that are from the future (younger than now) get hollow circles.
      The special term "<0" is a way to refer to "all future".
      This is the current factory default written as tweak:
        AgeCircleClasses=<0:C06050,0:D0F060,5:A0D040,60:60A020,1440:909020,10080:C09030,40320:705040,525600:404850
      Note that the colors are drawn with an opacity of 75%, so e.g. they will
      be lighter when printed on white.
    + List: Now when you hover any cell in any date column the age of that item
      is displayed in a tooltip.
    ! Floating Preview: Would stop the preview of text files at the first NULL
      character. Fixed.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.91.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.91.lng is uploaded.

v18.10.0003 - 2017-07-16 14:33
    + SC copy enhanced: Now you can specify whether the items are marked as
      copied or cut, i.e. whether a subsequent paste operation will copy or move
      the items.
      Further also CRLF is now allowed as separator in the "itemlist" argument.
      Syntax: copy itemlist, [effect=copy|cut]
        itemlist: |-separated or CRLF-separated list of items (files or folders);
                  items support environment variables, XY native
                  variables, relative (to app path) and portable paths.
        effect:   copy [Default] = mark as copied
                  cut = mark as cut
      Examples:
        copy <clp>;         //copy (text or items in clipboard) as items, marked as copied
        copy <clp>, "cut";  //copy (text or items in clipboard) as items, marked as cut
      Usage:
        The copy command can be used for converting textual clipboard contents
        to item clipboard contents, and also to change the marking of current
        clipboard contents from Copied to Cut and vice versa.
    + Toolbar: The tooltip of the Edit Clipboard button now shows if items in
      the clipboard are marked as Cut or as Copied.
    ! SC setting/settingp "safeoverwrite" did not work yet. Fixed.

      Since v18.00.0011 a new tab was opened and clicking on the message
      "XYplorer was closed with this tab pointing to a network location." would
      bring you to "This PC" instead of to the network location. Fixed.

    + Toolbar | Go to Last Target: Now the button tooltip shows the last target.
    * Toolbar: Renamed grammatically ambiguous "Preview Pane" to "Show Preview
      Pane".
    + SC popupmenu/popupnested enhanced: Now you can define custom captions for
      menu commands defined as XYplorer Menu Commands or Toolbar Buttons. Simply
      put the definition in the "data" part of the item definition
      (Caption;Data;Icon;State).
      Examples:
        popupmenu("My Caption for :copypath;:copypath;Copy.ico");
        popupmenu("My Caption for #102;#102;Copy.ico");
      Remarks:
        Of course, this also works in the Hamburger.     
    + Scripting commands setting/settingp enhanced: New named argument
      "safeoverwrite" to temporarily enable/disable Custom Copy "Safe Overwrite".

v18.10.0000 - 2017-07-10 21:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Hamburger at the Breadcrumbs. A new button brings some often used
      commands closer to the mouse. Actually we should have made it a
      Cheeseburger to attract the mouse even more.
  +++ Dual Pane Commands. Added commands "Move to Other Pane" and "Copy to Other
      Pane" to the context menu of any selected items.
  +++ Dual Permanent Startup Path. Now can define a permanent startup path for
      each pane.

      Recent Locations" drop the list of recent locations as targets to
      move/copy the currently selected items to.

    * Network Speed: Recently an apparently significant number of users reported
      a dramatic speed gain with this tweak set to 1:
        NetworkNetServerEnum=1
      Therefore now the factory default has been set to 1. (Just affects fresh
      installations. No automatic changes for upgraders.)
    + The above tweak, NetworkNetServerEnum, is now supported by SC tweak:
        tweak("NetworkNetServerEnum", ""); //toggle
        tweak("NetworkNetServerEnum", 1); //set
        tweak("NetworkNetServerEnum", 0); //unset
        echo tweak("NetworkNetServerEnum"); //get
    * Updated the help file.
    ! Menu Go | Go to Previous Location: Would under certain conditions go to
      the real path when it should go to the special path. Fixed.

      Syntax: tagitems([field], [value], [itemlist], [flags])
        flags: (bit field)
              1 = Return tags of all passed/selected items.
              2 = Return the name of labels; else the index is returned

v18.00.0020 - 2017-07-04 10:49
    + Added a tweak that enables you to suppress sort headers in Details views:
        SortHeadersOffInDetailsToo=1
      If set to "1" then setting of this option (and its twin menu command):
        Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Sort | Show sort headers in all views
        View | Sort By | Show Sort Headers in All Views
      will also affect the sort headers in Details views. So if you turn off
      "Show Sort Headers in All Views" then they would be also turned off in
      Details views.
      Note that the "Show sort headers in all views" menu command is also
      available in the list's white space context menu, so the sort headers are
      never too far away.

v18.00.0018 - 2017-06-30 09:04
    + SC popupmenu/popupnested enhanced: Experimentally now you can add scripts
      to your scripted menu, identified by the script marker "::". On selecting
      the menu item the script is executed.
      In this case the menu item only supports two fields, Caption and Script.
      General Syntax for a menu item that in interpreted as a script (assuming
      sep_item=";"):
        ::Caption;Script
        ::Script              (here Script is also used as Caption)
      Examples:
        popupmenu("::Hi;echo 'hi'|::Ho;echo 'ho'");
        popupmenu("::echo 'hi'|::echo 'ho'");
      There can be multiple statements per item and a trailing ";":
        popupmenu("::""Hi Ho!"";echo 'hi';echo 'ho';");
      All sorts of menu items can be freely mixed. Here three ways to code a
      "Copy Path" function:
        popupmenu(":copypath|#101|::'Copy Path';#101;");
      Remarks:
        It might be hybris to pack a script into a substring of an argument of
        another script and can surely open the doors of hell. But OTOH it's a
        cute little option for the new Hamburger menu...
