v17.40.0104 - 2016-12-06 10:34
    * Configuration | Styles | Line spacing: Now the initial value (virgin run)
      is DPI aware. Same for column spacing.
    ! Date Picker: Issues with a custom system short date format like
      "ddMMMyyyy" or "yyyyMMMdd" (no separators). Fixed.
    ! Browsing shared network folders with IPs (like \\127.0.0.1\) had a glitch
      at some point (going up did not work). Fixed.
    ! Find Files: Would not work on Paper Folders since 20161024. Fixed.

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

It's a good idea to backup your complete XYplorer settings (menu File | Settings Special | Backup Application Data Folder...)

    + Info Panel | Tags: If you changed any tags and select a new file (or
      change to a new folder, or switch to the other pane, or exit the app) but
      did not click Apply first, you now are prompted to apply the changes:
        Apply Changed Tags?
        Click OK to apply the changed tags now.
      On Cancel the changes are discarded and the interrupted operation
      continues.
    + Added tweak to auto-apply changed tags in info panel. If the tweak is
      enabled then tags are applied without the above "Apply Changed Tags?"
      prompt.
        TagsAutoApply=1
    + Info Panel | Tags | Label: Now you can also open the dropdown by clicking
      the label icon.

      if you clicked on the folder in the tree where the search was started
      from. Fixed. Now the "Search Results" tab stays as it is and a new
      unlocked tab (or the default tab if there is one) is opened.

  +++ Help | Online Support | Check for Updates: Now you are offered to download

      So, finally, XYplorer can self-update!
      BTW, the functionality is equivalent to this script line:
        update;   //update to the latest official version (if there is a new one)
      So it only minds official releases, not beta releases.
    + SC update enhanced: Added flag to run the installer silent (no questions).
      Syntax: update [flags]
        flags: (bit field)
             16 = silent

v17.30.0205 - 2016-11-19 12:58
    + SC update enhanced: Added flags that allow to auto-run the app after
      install. Note, however, that the app will be run as administrator. There
      is no way to run it as user (since it's done from the elevated installer).
      Syntax: update [flags]
        flags: (bit field)
              1 = include beta version
              2 = run update also if current version is up-to-date
              4 = run app (as admininstrator)
              8 = run app ask (as admininstrator)
      Examples:
        update 1 + 4; //update to the latest beta version, and run it
        update 1 + 8; //update to the latest beta version, and ask whether to run it
      Remarks:
      - Remember that all enhancements regarding update only affect updating
        *from* this version, not *to* this version.
    ! SC Update: Solved this issue from v17.30.0203:
        - When updating a portable installation that does not have the file
          Startup.ini then this file is created by the updater, and it will set
          the app data folder to "%appdata%\XYplorer".

    > TIP: If you have v17.30.0203 then you can use this script to update to
      this beta version (Pro Edition only):
        update 1;
      There is still a minor bug in v17.30.0203 with displaying the correct
      build number. This is fixed in v17.30.0204. You will profit from this fix
      once v17.30.0205 is out.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.83.

Code: Select all

v17.30.0203 - 2016-11-18 20:32
  +++ Update: Experimentally added a way to update XY from within. Currently
      only implemented as a scripting command:
    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: Update
      Action: Updates this instance of XYplorer.
      Syntax: update [flags]
        flags: (bit field)
              1 = include beta version
              2 = run update also if current version is up-to-date
      Examples:
        update;   //update to the latest official version (if there is a new one)
        update 1; //update to the latest beta version (if there is a new one)
        update 3; //update to the latest beta version (no matter what)
      Remarks:
        - The latest installer is downloaded to the TEMP folder (%temp%). After
          update this file is not auto-deleted. Either delete it yourself, or
          store it somewhere, or simply don't care. It's just about 4 MB.
          BTW, the downloaded installer has the full build number in the name.
        - XYplorer will be automatically closed (else it could not be updated).
          Whether the settings are saved depends on your setting of
          Configuration | Startup & Exit | Save settings on exit.
        - When the update is finished you have to manually restart XYplorer. (If
          it would be restarted from the installer it would inherit the elevated
          rights of the installer, something you should better control
          yourself.)
      Issues:
        - When updating a portable installation that does not have the file
          Startup.ini then this file is created by the updater, and it will set
          the app data folder to "%appdata%\XYplorer".
    * Installer: Removed the option to install XYplorer per-machine (default) or
      per-user. It had been added v7.20.0015 - 2008-06-20 20:17, but turned
      dysfunctional some years ago. The choice was also rather confusing and
      scary to many users.
      Now XYplorer is always installed per user.
      Tip: A per machine installation is easy to achieve manually by editing
      Startup.ini to contain the following:
        [Appdata]
        Path=%commonappdata%\XYplorer

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

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v17.30.0201 - 2016-11-16 15:00
  +++ Find Files: Added selector "cont:". Use it to compare the pattern with the
      textual contents of the file (folders are ignored).
      It's a simple vanilla text comparison supporting wildcards * and ?. Like
      the following settings on the Contents tab:
        Mode: Wildcards
        Type: Text
        All else unchecked. So the search is case-insensitive (A==a).     
      Examples:
                                  //matches all files...
        cont:chicken              //containing "chicken" (or "CHICKEN") anywhere
        cont:chicken*             //containing "chicken" at the beginning
        :cont:chicken or dog      //containing "chicken" or "dog" anywhere
        :chicken or cont:chicken  //containing "chicken" in the name or the contents
        cont:"chicken"            //with content == "chicken"
        cont:*                    //that are content searched (e.g. PNG files are not)
        cont:?*                   //that are content searched and not empty
        cont:""                   //that are content searched and empty
      Of course, it also works in Quick Search:
        ?cont:chicken             //containing "chicken" (or "CHICKEN") anywhere       
      Remarks:
        - Remember that content search can take time.
        - This feature opens content search to Boolean OR. Nice!
    + Scripting: Now multi-script nesting can be defined with relative levels.
      This can be useful when building menus from local resources by use of the
      Include statement.
      Syntax: A relative level is marked by a prefixed "+" character. The
      number following "+" is added to the last defined absolute level.
      For example, the following two code samples create identical nested
      multi-scripts:
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      "A" echo "A";
      "B|||1" echo "B";
      "C|||2" echo "C";
      "D|||1" echo "D";
      "B|||2" echo "B";
      "C|||3" echo "C";
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      "A" echo "A";
      "B|||+1" echo "B";
      "C|||+2" echo "C";
      "D|||1" echo "D";
      "B|||+1" echo "B";
      "C|||+2" echo "C";
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      However, the second sample uses relative levels which allows it to re-use
      the same part of code twice:
        "B|||+1" echo "B";
        "C|||+2" echo "C";
      So this part of code could be outsourced to a file say
      "IncludedMenuBC.xys" and then be included like this:
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      "A" echo "A";
      include "IncludedMenuBC.xys"
      "D|||1" echo "D";
      include "IncludedMenuBC.xys"
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------
