Code: Select all

v18.50.0210 - 2017-11-20 16:54
    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: sysdebug
      Action: Sends a string to the system debugger via API OutputDebugString.
      Syntax: sysdebug string
      Example:
        sysdebug "any string";
      Remarks:
      - SysInternals has a tool "DebugView" to view the system debugger:
        https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/sysinternals/downloads/debugview
        It will show the sent strings in real time in a list.
      - Unicode characters are not supported due to an age old Windows bug.
        They are shown as "?".
      - This command is not officially supported (no mention in help).
    * Color Filters: Just to make sure (it has never been claimed otherwise),
      patterns with groups, e.g. "[a-z]" are not allowed in Color Filters, only
      wildcards *, ?, #.
    ! Color Filters: Filters with invalid patterns could crash the app. Fix #2.

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.

    + App Exit: Now when anything goes wrong on save settings you are prompted
      whether you want to exit the app (any maybe lose any changes in your
      configuration) or keep it running (to keep your configuration alive, check
      what went wrong, and maybe fix it, e.g. by removing a ReadOnly flag or by
      regaining necessary disk space).
      This is the message:
        Errors on Save Settings!
        Some settings might not have been saved to disk.
        Click OK to exit XYplorer anyway.
        Click Cancel to keep XYplorer running.
    * List: Now middle-click on LNK files behaves like Shift+Dbl-Click on LNK
      files: The link target is opened in a new tab.
    + Configuration | Filters & Type Ahead Find | Type Ahead Find | Redirect
      typing to Live Filter Box: Now it handles dead keys that are copied to the
      keyboard buffer. So you can type the accent key and then "a" to get "á".
      for this to work the Live Filter Box gets the input focus once a dead key
      is pressed.

      Experimentally now the same interface is loaded as if you you clicked
      "Help | Online Support | Check for Updates". In case of an available

        Click OK to update now.
    ! Configuration | General | Startup & Exit | Check for updates on startup:
      Would not trigger if on startup the mouse pointer was over anything
      triggering a tooltip. Fixed.
    ! Info Panel | Report | Current List: When you pressed ESC right before
      generating a report the line "*** Job terminated by user. ***" was falsely
      printed to the top of the report. Fixed.
    ! Image Aspect Ratio: A ratio of 3:1 was shown as 6:2. Fixed.
