Code: Select all

v22.00.0021 - 2021-07-08 16:17
    * Tools | Customize List | Size Column Format: Now the column width is 
      automatically adjusted after the size format has been changed, just like 
      it is already the case with the date columns.
    - All internal upgrade code for versions prior to v15.00 (released 
      09-Mar-2015) has been removed. If you need to upgrade from versions 
      earlier than v15.00, use v22.00.0015 or earlier.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0172.
    ! View | Columns | Load Column Layout...: Would open at the wrong path under 
      certain conditions. Fix #3.
    ! View | Columns | Save Column Layout As...: Would open at the wrong path 
      under certain conditions. Fix #3.
    ! Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Rename | Hide extensions from 
      rename edit box: When you pressed Right or End to edit the extension, the 
      box did not expand to the right margin as it should. 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.
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.

v22.00.0015 - 2021-07-07 13:48
    + SC recase enhanced: Added parameter "title_case_exceptions".
      Syntax: recase(string, [mode], [flags], [title_case_exceptions])
        title_case_exceptions:
          missing: Use the global defaults (as stored at key RenameTitleCaseExceptions)
          empty: Do not use any exceptions
          else: Use this ";"-separated list of exceptions, e.g. "a;an;the"
      Examples for Title Case:
        text recase("the caMel BITES the horse.", "t");                 //The Camel Bites the Horse. (factory default exceptions)
        text recase("the caMel BITES the horse.", "t", , "");           //The Camel Bites The Horse. (no exceptions)
        text recase("the caMel BITES the horse.", "t", , "the;bites");  //The Camel bites the Horse. (custom exceptions)
      Examples for Camel Case:
        text recase("the caMel BITES the horse.", "c");                 //The CaMel BITES the Horse. (factory default exceptions)
        text recase("the caMel BITES the horse.", "c", , "");           //The CaMel BITES The Horse. (no exceptions)
        text recase("the caMel BITES the horse.", "c", , "the;bites");  //The CaMel bITES the Horse. (custom exceptions)

v22.00.0007 - 2021-07-05 13:03
    * Configuration | General | Tree and List | List | Select last used 
      subfolder: Now it's limited to Up/Down and Back/Forward.
      The extended functionality (do it also when entering a folder via the list 
      or the breadcrumb bar) is now bound to a tweak (bitfield: 1=via list, 
      2=via breadcrumb). To restore the previous behavior set it to 3:
        AutoSelectMRUSubfolderExtended=3
      I changed the default behavior because it seemed unnatural to me.
    ! MDBU (Stay Up) and Quick Audio Preview: They stayed visible after 
      switching panes. In case of the Quick Audio Preview this could even lead 
      to a crash after a certain sequence of actions. Fixed. Now both a closed 
      on switching panes.
    ! View | Columns | Load Column Layout...: When for whatever reason the path 
      "<xydata>\Columns\" could not be created, the "Load Column Layout" dialog 
      opened at the *last* path it was opened at. Now there will be an error 
      message that will tell us why that path could not be created, and the 
      "Load Column Layout" dialog will not be opened at all.

      while the list is scrolled horizontally.
    ! Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Rename | Hide extensions from

v22.00.0005 - 2021-07-03 10:40
    + Toolbar | Column Layouts: Added a little trick for power users. Hold down 
      the CTRL key while clicking any of the column layout menu commands to 
      display the column layout definition as text. Btw, all six "Update ..." 
      commands display the same: the current column layout definition.
      If you've ever wondered how wide a column is in pixels, now you can find 
      out. And you can use these definitions for SC columnlayout.
    + Toolbar | Column Layouts: The layouts are graphics-aware now, i.e. the 
      widths are saved and loaded without counting the width of any size or age 
      graphics displayed in the column.
      To prevent breaking old layouts the graphics-aware widths are marked by a 
      "/g" switch right after the width in the layout definition, for example 
      "+Size.68/g" and "+Modified.115/g".
    ! Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box | Show audio info 
      and tags: Since 20210624 These special tips were not shown for MP3s 
      anymore when hovering icons. Fixed.
    ! Autosize Columns Here (Configuration | General | Custom Event Actions | 
      Double-click on line numbers header | Autosize columns now): Ctrl+DblClick 
      on the # column crashed the app if the list was shorter than the view 
      port, i.e. ironically when using "Autosize Columns Here" was not necessary 
      at all. Fixed.

Code: Select all

v22.00.0004 - 2021-07-02 15:39
  +++ Backup / Custom Copy / Custom Move / Sync Folders: Added a new condition 
      for the behavior on name collisions: "Overwrite if different contents".
      The contents are compared by comparing the SHA256 hash of each file.
      There is currently no GUI-way to change this method of comparison, but you 
      can tweak it if you feel the need (see next section).
    + Added three tweaks to control the hashing method used by the content check 
      in Custom Copy/Move, Backup, and Sync Folder. Each of them 
      factory-defaults to 4 (SHA256):
        ContentCheck=4          '1=ByteToByte, 2=MD5, 3=SHA1, 4=SHA256, 5=SHA512
        BackupContentCheck=4    '1=ByteToByte, 2=MD5, 3=SHA1, 4=SHA256, 5=SHA512
        SyncContentCheck=4      '1=ByteToByte, 2=MD5, 3=SHA1, 4=SHA256, 5=SHA512
      Any other value than the listed ones will fall back to 4 (SHA256).
    + SC moveto, copyto, backupto: Added new value 11 (= Overwrite if different 
      contents) to the on_collision parameter:
        on_collision [optional]
          -1 = Ask
          0 = [Default] Use global setting from Configuration | File Operations | Backup Operations | On name collisions
          1 = Overwrite if newer
          2 = Overwrite
          3 = Skip
          4 = Suffix number to copy
          5 = Affix current date to copy
          6 = Affix last modified date to copy
          7 = Suffix number to existing
          8 = Affix current date to existing
          9 = Affix last modified date to existing
          10 = Overwrite if different size or date
          11 = Overwrite if different contents
      Note: The order is different from the order in the "Configure Custom Copy 
      operations" dialog's "On name collisions:" dropdown to avoid breaking old 
      code.
      Example:
        copyto <path i>, 5:=11; //copy selected items to the other pane, on name collision overwrite if different contents
    + SC sync: Added new value 4 (= Overwrite if different contents) to the 
      on_collision parameter:
        on_collision:
          -1 = Ask
          0 = Overwrite if newer
          1 = Overwrite if different size or date
          2 = Overwrite
          3 = Skip
          4 = Overwrite if different contents
      Note: The order is different from the order in the "Sync Folders" dialog's 
      "On name collisions:" dropdown to avoid breaking old code.
    + New variables to return the unslashed path of each pane:
        echo <path a>;    //active pane
        echo <path i>;    //inactive pane
    + Tweak RenameTitleCaseExceptions: The following words are now the 
      factory default:
        RenameTitleCaseExceptions=a;an;and;at;by;for;from;in;of;on;or;out;the;to
      They are also set for upgraders.
      Note: The title capitalization problem is not tied to the English 
      language, but since English is XYplorer's default language, it should be 
      fine to use only English words as the default for this feature.
    * Tweak RenameTitleCaseExceptions: Improved the algorithm to handle 
      something like this correctly ("and" after hyphen lowercase; extensions 
      lowercase):
        Bed-and-Breakfast.txt
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.133.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.133.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
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0171.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

Code: Select all

v22.00.0002 - 2021-07-01 13:07
    + File | Rename Special | Aaa Aa.aaa: For this command and other occasions 
      where the so-called "title case" is applied you can now define exceptions 
      using a new tweak. For example:
        RenameTitleCaseExceptions=a;an;and;at;by;for;from;in;of;on;or;out;the;to
      These exceptions do not start with an uppercase letter, but instead start 
      with a lowercase letter, unless they are in the first or last position 
      (sic: The first word and last word in a title should always be 
      capitalized) in the title. Using the example above, you would get this 
      result:
        IN 1: the capitalization of the important words in the title
        IN 2: THE CAPITALIZATION OF THE IMPORTANT WORDS IN THE TITLE
        OUT:  The Capitalization of the Important Words in the Title
      For mp3-style captions " - " is recognized as title-separating:
        IN:   the black keys - the lengths.mp3
        OUT:  The Black Keys - The Lengths.mp3
      Also . : ? ! and ( are recognized as title-separating when followed by a 
      space:
        IN:   stones - tie you up (the pain of love).mp3
        OUT:  Stones - Tie You Up (The Pain of Love).mp3
    * Aspect Ratio: Now the famous and irrational ISO 216, aka the
      "Lichtenberg ratio", an international standard for paper sizes used across 
      the world except in some parts of the American continent, is shown as 1:v2 
      or v2:1 (where v stands for the square root character just in this change 
      log) in XYplorer when the ratio is +/- one percent close to the irrational 
      number.
    * Live Filter Box: It did not use the same font as the Address Bar, which 
      could lead to a broken layout. Now it does.
    ! MLS: There were 7 unnecessary strings in the language file. Fixed in next 
      MLS version.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

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

v22.00.0000 - 2021-06-29 12:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Column Layouts. Now you can load predefined and custom column layouts with 
      just one click. Instead of laboriously collecting special columns, the 
      photo column layout, for example, shows the date the photo was taken, 
      dimensions, aspect ratio, exposure time, exposure compensation, F-stop, 
      focal length, ISO sensitivity and camera model in no time at all. The 
      audio column layout gives you length, sample rate, bit depth, bit rate and 
      channels. You can adapt the column layouts to your particular needs.
  +++ Maximum Depth. Now you can easily narrow the search recursion depth. E.g. 
      maximum depth 2 means: Search at the current location and 2 levels deeper.
  +++ Sorting Search Results. The new "Always sort search results this way" 
      option lets you control exactly how all of your search results are 
      initially sorted. Sorting column, sorting direction and even secondary 
      sorting are supported.
  +++ Add Tabs Using Drag & Drop. Now you can turn a folder into a new tab by 
      simply dragging and dropping it onto the empty part of the tab bar or the 
      gaps between two tabs.
  +++ Autosize Columns Here. Now you can limit the automatic adjustment of the 
      column sizes to the currently visible rows. This has two advantages: You 
      don't get super-wide columns for something that's miles out of sight, and 
      it's much faster with long lists.

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.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v21.90.0044 - 2021-06-26 14:03
    + Tab Bar Drop Add Tab: Various changes and improvements:
      - The small blue insertion arrow is shown where the tab will be inserted.
      - You now can drag folders onto the inactive pane's tab bar.
      - Smaller gap: 10 pixels (5 pixels of each tab header).
    + Configuration | General | Custom Event Actions | Double-click on line 
      numbers header | Autosize columns now: Now when you hold CTRL while 
      double-clicking the autosizing only applies to the visible rows. This neat 
      little trick has two advantages:
      - You don't get super-wide columns for something that's miles out of view.
      - It's much faster for long lists.
