Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v22.40.0223 - 2021-11-12 17:44
    + Added an experimental tweak that allows you to add Paper Folders to the 
      Mini Tree (they will end up as the last children of "This PC"):
        PFAllowInTree=1
      Then you can do, for example, this:
        loadtree("paper:Pictures", 1);
      Note: Don't start reporting bugs here! This is completely unfinished.
    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: Minor rename, 
      now it's:
        When hovering over the icon
        When hovering over the filename
    ! List: Since v22.40.0216 This PC could inherit the Name column width from 
      other list modes. Fixed.
:info: To update to this BETA version from XYplorer, hold down the CTRL key while you click Help | Online Support | Check for Updates. To download it, choose a 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.

v22.40.0222 - 2021-11-12 14:23
    + Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: Reorganized it 
      again to have more options. Also renamed some of the old options. Now we 
      have this:
      - Show file info tips
        - When hovering the icon
          Renamed from "Show info tips only when hovering file icon".
        - When hovering the caption
          New.
        - Only while the shift key is held down
          Renamed from "Show info tips only while the shift key is held down".
        Note: To show the File Info Tips over icon AND caption, you can either 
        tick both "When hovering the icon" and "When hovering the caption" or 
        untick both, no difference.
      - Show Hover Box
        (Same as above)
      Note: When the File Info Tips and the Hover Box compete for the same 
      place, the Hover Box always wins.
    ! Favorite Live Filters: The first favorite wasn't selectable in the menu. 
      Fixed.

    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: It was not 
      possible to show the File Info Tip over the icon and the Hover Box over 
      the caption. Now you can achieve it by ticking "Show info tips only when 
      hovering file icon" and unticking "Show hover box only when hovering file 
      icon".
    ! Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: Holding CTRL 
      would not always replace a Hover Box by a File Info Tip. Fixed.

    * Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Show file icon on thumbnail: The 
      icon is now shown in the top *right* corner of the thumbnail. Before, it 
      was shown in the top left corner where it got in the way of age circle and 
      checkbox.
    % Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Cache path: Now when you change the 
      path while thumbnails are showing, the thumbnails will not be re-created 
      from scratch but the data in memory are just copied to the new path.
    % Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Resolve cache path from current 
      folder: Same as above.
    ! Toolbar: The "Save Settings" button icon was not always updated after 
      "Save Settings" when tabs or favorites had been changed. Fixed.
    ! Tools | Customize List | Checkbox Selection: This style affected the 
      calculated column width in Tiles views and thereby the number of columns 
      shown. Wrong. Fixed.

    + Hover Box: Now you can press "F1" while the Hover Box is displayed to show 
      a message box with all of the associated keyboard shortcuts.
      The same message box is also reached by "Toolbar | Hover Box | Context 
      Menu | Help...".
    + Hover Box | Image: Now you can press "F" (frame) while the Hover Box is 
      showing an image to quickly cycle the width of the image frame between 
      three values: 0, 12, 24 pixels. The new factory default (also the value 
      for upgraders) is 0.

    + SC get got a new named argument "box". Use it to find out whether a tree 
      folder is boxed and what's the background color.
      Syntax: get("box", [path])
        path:   If missing the current tree path is used.
        return: If boxed: the background color in RRGGBB
                Else: nothing
      Remarks:
        - In dark mode it still returns the color it would have in light mode. 
          That's the value you can use for SC box.
        - It does not return a color for a node within a box, just for the boxed 
          node itself.
      Examples:
        echo get("box");  //eg "F7F7F4"
        echo get("box", "E:\XY");
    * Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Show file icon on thumbnail: The 
      icon is now shown in the top left corner of the thumbnail. Before, it was 
      shown in the bottom left corner of the thumbnail bounding box.
    * Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Show file icon on thumbnail: Now it 
      also affects Tiles views.
    * Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Show dimensions of original image 
      on thumbnaill: Now it also affects Tiles views.

    + Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box | Show audio info 
      and tags: Now you can hold CTRL to force the normal file info tip instead 
      of the special audio tip when hovering a FLAC, MP3, or OGG file.
    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: Removed an 
      inconsistency in Tiles views where the Hover Box appeared over the 
      properties data area, but the File Info Tips did not. Now for both, HB and 
      FIT, this behavior is tied to the setting of "Configuration | General | 
      Menus, Mouse, Usability | Mouse | Full name column select".
    * Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability | Mouse | Full name 
      column select: Now it affects the hot zone of File Info Tips & Hover Box. 
      When this option is enabled, this zone is not limited to the label itself, 
      but includes the entire width and height of the Name cell.
    ! Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box | Show audio info 
      and tags: Did not simply replace the normal file info tip anymore (since 
      about a month ago) when hovering a FLAC, MP3, or OGG file. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | File Operations | File Operations | Background Processing: 
      Stranded XYcopy instances after backgrounded Delete operations. Tried a fix.
    > Configuration | File Operations | File Operations | Background Processing: 
      Added some more debug logging while investigating the cause of stranded 
      XYcopy instances.
    ! Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Columns | Autofit the width 
      of the Name column: When switching between Details views and non-Details 
      views (List, Small Icons, Small Tiles, Large Tiles) within a tab, the 
      autofitted Name column width was inherited by the non-Details views. 
      Fixed. Now those non-Details views remember their own Name column width 
      per tab.

    * Configuration: Buttons of the "Apply To..." type are now always enabled 
      regardless of the super-setting. The ability to always look into a button 
      is more important than a redundant visual feedback.

      maximized. Fixed.

      Remarks:

    + SC setthumb rewritten from scratch.
      Action: Sets a specific thumbnail for one or more currently listed items.
      Syntax: setthumb [item], [thumb], [mapfile]
        item:    Item to set the thumbnail for.
                 - The path defaults to the current list path.
                 - This item has to be present in the current list.
                 If omitted then the thumbnail is set for all currently selected items.
        thumb:   File to be used as thumbnail.
                 - The path defaults to <xyicons>.
        mapfile: File with a list of "item > thumb" mappings.
                 - The path defaults to <xydata>.
      Examples:
        setthumb , "E:\Test\thumbs\stars.jpg"; //set it for all selected files
        setthumb , "stars.jpg"; //it's in path <xyicons>
        setthumb "E:\Test\Meskalin.exe", "\\Vega\shared\Test\Pics\BlowUp.jpg";
        setthumb "Meskalin.exe", <clp>; //pull thumb from clipboard
      Remarks on the mapfile:
      - By setting a mapfile you can permanently patch the thumbnails of any 
        items on your system. This includes setting thumbnails for items that 
        otherwise would have none.
      - You only have to set it once with SetThumb. It then sticks in the INI 
        file until you change it to another map file or set it to "".
      - Syntax: One mapping per line, generic format: item > thumb. "item" can 
        be full path, a mere filename, or a wildcard pattern. The lines are 
        processed from top to bottom. First match wins.
        Examples:
          D:\Test\Java.psd > E:\Test\thumbs\injection\palmoil.jpg
          E:\Space\* > E:\Test\thumbs\stars.jpg
          XY-HoverBoxKeyBoardTricks.txt > E:\XY\XYlogo.png
          *.exe > E:\Test\thumbs\injection\motor.jpg
          * > E:\Icons\item.ico
      - Updating the map file does not automatically update the thumbnails cache 
        nor the currently shown thumbnails. If you want to see an immediate 
        effect you have to call #510 (View | Caches | Refresh Thumbnails):
          setthumb 2:="XYthumbsMap.txt"; #501;  //set map file + refresh thumbnails
          setthumb 2:=""; #501;                 //reset map file + refresh thumbnails
    * Startup: Experimentally, there is now a small loading screen. Something to 
      look at while the app is loading, centered on where the app will be.
