Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v22.20.0101 - 2021-09-03 14:47
    + Panes | Sync Select...: Added option "Select Different Content" to select 
      all name matches with a different content.
      By default the content is compared using SHA-256 hashing.
    + Added a tweak to control the hashing method used by "Panes | Sync Select | 
      Select Different Content". It factory defaults to 4 (SHA-256), and any
      value different from 1-5 falls back to 4 (SHA-256):
        SelSpecContentCheck=4          '1=ByteToByte, 2=MD5, 3=SHA-1, 4=SHA-256, 5=SHA-512
    + Added a tweak to fiddle with the fatness of the primary and secondary sort 
      arrows (sorry, I was bored):
        SortArrowFat=1  'make them 1 pixel fatter than normal
        SortArrowFat=2  'make them 2 pixels fatter than normal
        ... etc ...
    ! XYcopy: Pseudo error 91 possible under certain conditions since 
      v22.00.0004 - 2021-07-02 15:39. Fixed.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0174.
To download the latest BETA version choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

before running a new BETA version. This will also help in fixing any fresh bugs.

v22.20.0001 - 2021-09-02 11:45
    + List: Added a tweak to ignore the column header on autosize:
        AutoSizeIgnoreHeader=1

      "Autofit the width of the Name column" is applied right away as well if 
      enabled.

      sort order arrow: Did not work if "Keep folders on top" was disabled. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Columns | Autofit the width 
      of the Name column: Did not work correctly if "Configuration | Colors and 
      Styles | Highlights & Dark Mode | Borders" was set to any value but 
      "Windows Classic Style" or "No border". Fixed.
    ! Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Columns | Autofit the width

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

Direct Download: https://www.xyplorer.com/download/xyplorer_full.zip
Download Page: https://www.xyplorer.com/download.php
Release Notes: https://www.xyplorer.com/release.php

Code: Select all

v22.20.0000 - 2021-08-31 18:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Autofit the Name Column. Now you can let the Name column automatically 
      take up all of the space not used by the other columns. A simple check 
      mark saves you a lot of scrolling and dragging. So useful that you'll 
      stick with it forever.
  +++ Autosize the Size Column. The Size column is the one with the most 
      variable content, the one that's typically always either too wide or too 
      narrow. With this option, the width of the Size column is automatically 
      adjusted when positions are changed or tabs are switched or when a new 
      column layout is loaded.
  +++ Secondary Sort Order Arrow. Now you can indicate the implicit secondary 
      sort order by a very light little sort arrow. You'll love it if you're 
      nerd enough.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of Cedric Burnside.
To download the latest OFFICIAL version choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v22.10.0209 - 2021-08-31 13:16
    * SC get("previewhandler"): Reorganized the return. Now it might look like 
      this:
        Previewed Extension: msg
        Preview Handler: Outlook MAPI Mail Previewer [32-bit]
        Display Name: @C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\MAPISHELL.DLL,-127
        GUID: {435FDBA0-964C-43A7-8AFF-CC94E21B2249}
        Initialization: IInitializeWithItem
      Or like this when previewed via XY64.exe;
        Previewed Extension: docx
        Preview Handler: Microsoft Word-Vorschau [64-bit]
        Display Name: Microsoft Word-Vorschau
        GUID: {84f66100-ff7c-4fb4-b0c0-02cd7fb668fe}
        Initialization: IInitializeWithFile
      As you see, due to the lacking Windows documentation every Preview Handler 
      just registers more or less as it feels like. We're in outlaw zone.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.134.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.134.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
    * Updated the help file.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v22.10.0208 - 2021-08-30 14:00
    + List | Attr Column: Now the file attributes are displayed by default in a 
      modern narrow style (without all those hyphens). For example:
        BEFORE: ----A-----I----
        NOW:    AI
      You can toggle the display style (go back to the old DOS Attributes style) 
      by Ctrl+Right-clicking any item in the Attr column. Then click "Show 
      Attributes in DOS Style".
      This setting is global for all modes, tabs, panes, and reports.
    > UPGRADERS: Upgraders can use this toggle to turn on the new style.
    * List | Attr Column: Now the N ("Normal") attribute is suppressed (not 
      shown) by default. This is because this attribute is totally pointless: It 
      *always and only* shows when an item has none of the other attributes.
      The suppression of Normal is done by setting the new key "AttrSuppressed" 
      to 128 which happens to be the value for FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL.
        AttrSuppressed=128
      It's a bit field, so you can add values if you want to suppress other 
      attributes. E.g. FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECTORY is 16, and 
      FILE_ATTRIBUTE_ARCHIVE is 32. To hide D, A, and N do this (16+32+128):
        AttrSuppressed=176    
      Look up these values by searching the web for "File Attribute Constants".
      BTW, to suppress nothing do this:
        AttrSuppressed=0
    > UPGRADERS: While the new factory default is 128, upgraders have to 
      manually tweak the value.
    + Configuration | Preview | Previewed Formats | Find...: Now the dialog will 
      open on Ctrl+F3.
      It will also open on Shift+F3 if it has not been opened and used before 
      within this Configuration session. After a search has been done Shift+F3 
      will repeat that search.
    + Configuration | Preview | Previewed Formats | Find...: Now you get a 
      message when a repeated search (Shift+F3) doesn't find any other match, e.g.:
        No other matches found for "pdf".
      When there is more than one match the search cycles through the hits.
    + Find List Item: Now, in all small lists, you get a message when a repeated 
      search (Shift+F4) doesn't find any other match, e.g.:
        No other matches found for "Terminator".
      When there is more than one match the search cycles through the hits.
    ! MSG Preview: Didn't work anymore for some users since v22.10.0206. Fixed.
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.

v22.10.0207 - 2021-08-29 14:12
    + SC get("previewhandler"): Added a little debugging thing to learn about 
      the currently active preview handler. When you don't pass the "extension" 
      parameter, some lines of information are now returned.
      Example:
        text get("previewhandler"); //while a preview is shown
      Example return #1:
        Previewed extension: msg
        Preview handler bitness: 32-bit
        Preview handler: Outlook MAPI Mail Previewer
        Preview handler GUID: {435FDBA0-964C-43A7-8AFF-CC94E21B2249}
        Initialization type: IInitializeWithItem
      Example return #2:
        Previewed extension: pdf
        Preview handler bitness: 64-bit
        Preview handler: PDF-XChange PDF Preview Provider
        Preview handler GUID: {CF822AB4-6DB5-4FDA-BC28-E61DF36D2583} [User-Defined]
        Initialization type: IInitializeWithStream
      Example return #3:
        No preview handler is used.
    * XY64: Updated to 1.0.0.24.
    - Re-excluded MSG files from the 64-bit preview. Still does not work.
    ! Dark Mode: Since 20210724 the "info" icon was shown as the "nope" icon in 
      Dark Mode in certain contexts. Fixed.

v22.10.0206 - 2021-08-28 16:08
    + Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Sort: Added option "Show 
      implicit secondary sort order arrow". Tick it to show the implicit 
      secondary sort order (if any) by a very light small sort arrow.      
      FYI, this option raises tweak SortSecondaryShowAlways to UI.
    - MSG files have been excluded from the 64-bit preview in v20.90.0917 - 
      2020-08-31 13:26 because it just did not work. Experimentally this 
      exclusion has now been removed.
    % MSG Preview: Improved the speed of the 32-bit MSG Preview.
    ! Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs | Minimum / Maximum tab width in 
      pixels: Since 20210628 the maximum could not go below 250. Fixed. The 
      limit for both fields is 25; the defaults are 25 / 250.

v22.10.0205 - 2021-08-25 13:31
    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Columns: Added option 
      "Autofit the width of the Name column". Tick it to let the Name column 
      take up all of the space not used by the other columns.
      FYI, this option raises tweak ListAutoMaxNameColumn to UI.
    - Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Columns | Adaptive name 
      column width: Removed that feature. It finally worked well (after an 
      initial time of problems) but the whole concept was not really intuitive 
      and unnecessarily complex. The new "Autofit the width of the Name column" 
      achieves basically the same with a simpler approach and, by the way, much 
      less code.
    ! Configuration: The undocumented Ctrl+Right-Click function to display 
      breadcrumb paths to each option has received some minor bugs recently. 
      Fix #3.

v22.10.0204 - 2021-08-24 15:11
    + Floating Preview: The right-click menu of the Floating Preview's status 
      bar now has a toggle "Left-Align Status Text". Does what it says.
    + SC input() enhanced: Now the "width" parameter is used with style "s" 
      (default style) if you pass it.
        echo input("Test", 5:=1000);
      Also the "notes" parameter is not limited internally to 20 lines anymore 
      but can go up to 64 lines (if screen space allows).

Code: Select all

v22.10.0203 - 2021-08-23 17:20
    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Columns: Added option "Always 
      autosize the Size column". The Size column is the one with the most variable 
      contents, the one that's typically always either too wide or too narrow. 
      This option will autosize the Size column when changing locations or 
      switching tabs or when a new column layout is loaded.
      FYI, this option raises tweak ListAutoSizeSizeColumn to UI.
    + Tab Bars: Added tweak to always keep some pixels empty at the right end of 
      each tab bar (if possible), e.g. 20 pixels:
        TabBarKeepEmpty=20
      That way you always have a target available for the "Double-click on white 
      in tab bar" and "Middle-click on white in tab bar" Custom Event Actions.
    + Help | Various Information: Now in line 8 the Windows UI language is 
      shown, e.g. "UI Language: English". Just in case you don't know. :)

v22.10.0202 - 2021-08-21 19:12
    - Reverted this change from v21.50.0115 - 2021-02-08 13:45:
      * List: From now on, the Path column is used as 2ndary sort field (ascending 
        order) in Find mode (incl. Branch View). Before, the Name column was used.
    + List: Added tweak to re-enable the change that has been reverted above:
        SortSecondarySRbyPath=1
      So, you set this to 1 if you want to secondary-sort your search results 
      (incl. Branch View) by Path instead of by Name.
    + List: Added tweak to show the implicit secondary sort order (if any) by a 
      very light small sort arrow.
        SortSecondaryShowAlways=1
      Pretty useful IMO. Might add to Configuration later.
