v22.10.0007 - 2021-07-25 13:41
    + Tabs: Now you can freely choose almost anything for a tab's icon. In "View 
      | Tab | Rename Tab..." you can state an image file (GIF, JPG, PNG, ICO) or 
      non-image file (its system icon will be used) for the custom item icon 
      (appended to the name, separated by |). It can be a full path, or just a 
      filename (auto-resolved to the default icons path <xyicons>). Or you can 
      still specify an internal icon prefixed by ":", e.g. :dark.
    + SC inputselect enhanced: Added parameter "icon". Lets you add an icon to 
      the dialog's top section left of the dialog title. The icon spec can point 
      to an internal icon (eg ":dark"), to an image file (GIF, JPG, PNG, ICO), 
      or to any non-image file with a system icon you find useful (e.g. an EXE); 
      paths are auto-resolved to the default icons path <xyicons>.
      Syntax: inputselect(header, listdata, [separator="|"], [style=1], [cancel], _
              [width=800], [height=400], [windowcaption], [preselect], [icon])
      Examples:
        goto inputselect("Select Destination", "C:|D:|E:", 9:="rock.ico");
        goto inputselect("Select Destination", "C:|D:|E:", 9:="rain.jpg");
        goto inputselect("Select Destination", "C:|D:|E:", 9:="D:\pics\rain.jpg");
        goto inputselect("Select Destination", "C:|D:|E:", 9:=":dice");
    + Rename Preview Dialog | Top Section: Now in patterns with flanking spaces 
      the spaces are replaced by a visible character, Unicode Character 'OPEN 
      BOX' (U+2423). That way you can actually see what's going on.
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.

    * SC input: In order to refer to internal symbols via the key, the key must 
      be preceded by a ":" as elsewhere in the app. For example:
        echo input("Enter Greeting","Try to be nice..." ,'Hi!', e, 7:="Hello|Konbanwa|Go away|WTF", 8:=":dark");
    ! Find Files | Dupes: Dupe group sorting got confused when number of groups

v22.10.0004 - 2021-07-23 13:50
    + SC input enhanced: Now the icon parameter also accepts an image file (GIF, 
      JPG, PNG). It can be a full path, or just a filename (auto-resolved 
      to the default icons path <xyicons>).
    + Catalog: Now you can also state an image file (GIF, JPG, PNG) for the 
      custom item icon (defined in the Caption field, appended to the caption 
      separated by |). It can be a full path, or just a filename (auto-resolved 
      to the default icons path <xyicons>).
      Note that there is no caching. So if you use a large file for this image, 
      there will be delays even if you hover over the item.

    + Address Bar: It now tolerates (and ignores) leading and trailing spaces in 
      paths.
    ! Locked Tabs: If you changed the location of a locked tab while creating 
      thumbnails or calculating folder sizes, the location of the locked tab may 
      actually have been overwritten by the new location. Fixed.
    ! Renamed Tabs: Tabs that had a custom icon but no custom name defined did 
      not always update their header when they changed locations. Fixed.

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

v22.10.0000 - 2021-07-14 18:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Extra Safety on Name Collisions. The new condition "Overwrite if different 
      contents", in which the contents are compared by comparing the SHA-256 
      hash of each file, offers additional security for your backup, copy and 
      synchronization jobs.
  +++ Converting Filenames to Title Case. The bulk renamer will now recognize 
      words that are excluded from conversion to upper case. This way, your song 
      and photo collections will look more natural with just a single click. The 
      list of exclusions can of course be edited.
  +++ Irrational Aspect Ratio. Now ISO 216, also known as the "Lichtenberg 
      Ratio", an international standard for paper sizes used around the world 
      except in some parts of the Americas, is shown in XYplorer as 1:v2 or 
      v2:1, for images whose aspect ratio is close enough to the irrational 
      number. A little nerd honey ...
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to music by Joe Strummer.

                    t: tree
        return:     The current/previous topindex.
      Remarks:
        The command does not change any selections or the focus.

        echo topindex(, i);   //return the current topindex of the inactive list

        echo topindex(1); //scroll the active list to the top, return the previous index
        topindex(1, i);   //scroll the inactive list to the top
        topindex(b);      //scroll the active list to the bottom
        topindex(b, i);   //scroll the inactive list to the bottom

        topindex(b, t);   //scroll the tree to the bottom
        topindex(100);    //scroll the active list to row 100
        topindex(topindex() + 10);  //scroll the active list 10 rows down
        topindex(topindex() - 10);  //scroll the active list 10 rows up
    * Tabsets | Open...: The window height now adjusts to the number of tabsets 
      displayed (as far as the screen height allows).
    ! SC tab("relocate"): Did not apply any Folder View Settings when a 
      background tab was relocated. Fixed.
    ! Tabs: When moving tabs on the tab bar to the right, the dragged tab moves 
      one tab further to the right than what is indicated (since 20210626). Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

    + Window | Load Layout...: This command now also remembers the last used 
      layout file (within the session), which means that the editing field of 
      the dialog is prefilled with the name of the last loaded or saved file.
    ! Tabs: If you switched to a tab that points to an unavailable network 
      location, you would get an error message, but the tab would list the 
      contents of the previous tab. Fixed. Now the tab is blocked (i.e. it does 
      not display any content, only the error e.g. "The network path was not 
      found.").
    % Startup to an unavailable network location has been accelerated by a
