Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v21.10.0009 - 2020-09-22 21:12
    * Catalog | Context Menu of Categories | Open Folders in Tabs: From now on 
      no tabs are closed by this command. Simply new tabs are added right of the 
      current tab.
    ! Catalog | Context Menu of Categories | Open Folders in Tabs: Would not 
      open folders defined using environment variables or portable syntax. Fixed.
    ! Catalog | Context Menu of Categories | Make Mini Tree From Folders: Would not 
      use folders defined using environment variables or portable syntax. Fixed.
    ! Custom Event Actions (CEA) | Middleclick On White Space: Was not correctly 
      implemented in all contexts. Fixed.
    ! 64-bit Preview: Renaming a PDF while it was being previewed in the 
      Floating Preview could lead to a "File in Use" error. 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.

Code: Select all

v21.10.0008 - 2020-09-22 14:18
    + Custom Event Actions (CEA) | DoubleClick On White Space: Added tweak 
      CEA_TreeListDoubleClickOnWhite_Script to define a script that's run when 
      tweak CEA_TreeListDoubleClickOnWhite is set to the new value 6.
      Example:
        ; Tweak: 0=Default, 1=Top, 2=Up, 3=Back, 4=ScrollInView, 5=Refresh, 6=Script
        CEA_TreeListDoubleClickOnWhite=6
        CEA_TreeListDoubleClickOnWhite_Script=echo <focitem>;
    + Custom Event Actions (CEA): Added new event "Middleclick On White Space" 
      for Tree and List. The options are identical to those offered by CEA 
      DoubleClick On White Space. Note that these are all tweaks.
      Example:
        ; Tweak: 0=Default, 1=Top, 2=Up, 3=Back, 4=ScrollInView, 5=Refresh, 6=Script
        CEA_TreeListMiddleClickOnWhite=6
        CEA_TreeListMiddleClickOnWhite_Script=echo <focitem>;
    + List: Added tweak to customize the space between Date and Time in the Date 
      columns. Examples:
        DateTimeSeparator=" "       1 space (= default)
        DateTimeSeparator="  "      2 spaces
        DateTimeSeparator=" | "     free style
    * Paper Folders: Now go up on a Paper Folder goes to the location of its 
      definition file. Previously it was always "This PC", useless.
    * Paper Folders: The tab tooltip now shows the full path of the definition 
      file in the second line of the tooltip.

Code: Select all

v21.10.0007 - 2020-09-21 20:15
    + Menu View | Tab: Added command "Clone Tab". Opens a clone of the current 
      tab (without Home, Locked status or Visual Filter).
    * Menu View | Tab | New Tab: Now it opens the new tab at "This PC" unless a 
      new tab path is defined at "Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs | New 
      tab path".
    + Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs | On double-click: Added "Clone tab".
    + Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs | On middle-click: Added "Clone tab".
    > FYI, SC tab stays at it was before, i.e. the default is to clone the 
      current tab (otherwise old scripts would be broken):
        tab("new"); //clones the current tab
    + Custom Copy: Now the progress dialog shows not only the number of skipped 
      bytes but also the number of skipped files.
    % Custom Copy: The previous calculation of the number of skipped bytes 
      slowed to down copy (backup, sync) jobs with a large number of items. Not 
      anymore.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0158.

v21.10.0006 - 2020-09-21 14:25
    + Configuration | Other | Features: Added option "Dual Pane". Untick it to 
      remove the "Panes" menu from the main menu, and some Dual Pane related 
      buttons from the Toolbar. Relaxes the interface and the memory.
    + Configuration | Other | Features: Added option "File Tagging". Untick it 
      to remove the "Tags" menu from the main menu, and some Tags related 
      buttons from the Toolbar. Relaxes the interface and the memory.
    - Configuration | Other | Features: Removed option "Portable File 
      Associations / Portable Openwith Menu". It's always internally enabled 
      now.
    - Configuration | Other | Features: Removed option "Network Server Caching". 
      It's always internally enabled now.
    * Configuration | Other | Features: Re-ordered the list.
    * Main Menu: Shifted "Tools" 2 positions to the right to before "Window". 
      Seems the more natural place.
    * Hide extensions from rename edit box: Now the extension is shown at the 
      right end of the edit box even if "Show name length while renaming" is 
      disabled.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v21.10.0005 - 2020-09-20 12:53
    + Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Rename: Added option "Hide 
      extensions from rename edit box". Tick it hide extensions from the inline 
      rename box. Can be quite useful to have them out of the way. Very rarly 
      you want to change the extension of a file anyway. And there is always the 
      "Set Extension" dialog (File | Rename Special | Set Extension...) if you 
      really have to.
      FYI, the "Exclude file extension from initial selection" setting still has 
      its use when "Use dialog to rename single items" is ticked.
    * Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Rename | Show name length 
      while renaming: If ticked and the extension is hidden from the rename edit 
      box then the extension is now shown together with the name length.
    * Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Rename: Reordered the settings 
      here to more or less reflect the chronology of a rename operation.
    * Configuration | Jump to Setting... | List of All Settings: From now on the 
      filter pattern is only matched against the captions of the settings, not 
      against the whole listed item which also includes page and section 
      information.
      So now when you filter for "box" you don't get all settings from the page 
      "File Info Tips & Hover Box" in the results but only those that have "box" 
      in the caption.
      To accomplish this in a reliable way the page and section information is 
      now appended within square brackets instead of parentheses.
    + Catalog: Now you can easily add toolbar buttons with their icons, 
      captions, and functionality to the Catalog. Simply add the button key 
      prefixed by ":" to the Location field of the Catalog item. Everything else 
      can be left empty and at the default values.
      Examples:
        Location: :back           = Back
        Location: :fore           = Forward
        Location: :dice           = Random Order (resorts the list)
        Location: :qns            = Quick Search (opens the dialog)
        Location: :rfo            = Recent File Operations (pops a menu)
        Location: :cofi           = Enable Color Filters (toggles the state)
      Tip: A quick way to find out the button keys is to mouse-over a toolbar 
      button while holding CTRL. The tooltip will show "button: <key>".
      Notes:
      - Of course, these "buttons" don't have a pressed state, and they don't 
        have their own right-click menu (but the one of the Catalog item), so 
        it's a somewhat limited toolbar.
      - But all the same, the buttons are even capable to pop a menu when they 
        do so in the toolbar (those buttons with a small vertical arrow in the 
        right bottom corner), however, not on mousedown but on mouseup. All 
        Catalog action is on mouseup.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v21.10.0004 - 2020-09-19 21:07
    + Find Files and Quick Search: Now the switches /p (return the parent 
      folders of all matching items) and /x (return all folders that don't 
      contain any matching items) can be qualified regarding the depth of the 
      returned paths.
      Examples:
        readme.txt /p     //return all folders that contain a file readme.txt
        readme.txt /p=0   //same as /p
        readme.txt /p=1   //return level 1 of all folders that contain a file readme.txt
        readme.txt /x=5   //return level 5 of all folders that don't contain a file readme.txt
      Notes:
        - Depth level 1 is the first level below the root (roots itself are 
          never returned by this function).
        - The smaller the level index (while being > 0), i.e. the higher the 
          level, the less returns you should get.
        - Duplicate returns are auto-filtered out.
        - When the direct parent folder of the match has fewer levels than the 
          passed value it will be returned as is.
    + Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Rename: Added option "Set 
      archive attribute on folder rename". Tick to set the Archive attribute on 
      all recursive contents a renamed folder. This allows backup operations by 
      programs like XCOPY to decide what has to be backed up.
      This raises the tweak RenameFolderSetArchiveBit to UI.
    + Window | Load Layout... / Save Layout As...: Now the state of "Swap Panes" 
      is part of the saved and loaded layout.
    + SC setlayout: Now the state of "Swap Panes" is part of the saved and 
      loaded layout. The key is DPSwapPanes:
      Examples:
        setlayout("DPSwapPanes=!");     //toggle Swap Panes
        setlayout("DPSwapPanes=1");     //Swap Panes
        setlayout("DPSwapPanes=0");     //Unswap Panes
    * Tools | Customize List | Hide Extensions: Now the inline rename box in the 
      list hides the extension as well. Can be quite useful to have it out of 
      the way. Very rarly you want to change the extension of a file anyway. 
      This change also affects Serial Rename (Configuration | General | Sort and 
      Rename | Rename | Serial rename by Up and Down keys).
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

v21.10.0003 - 2020-09-19 12:46
    + Menu Panes: Added "Swap Panes" (Ctrl+Shift+F10) to swap the positions of 
      both panes, including tabs, breadcrumbs, and the pane dimensions.
    + Info Panel | Report | Current Folder | Classic directory dump: Now the 
      summary bytes are also shown in a friendly format.
        Before: 11.133.486 bytes
        Now:    11.133.486 bytes (10,62 MB)
    - Configuration | General | Safety Belts, Network | Network | Fast network 
      enumeration: Removed the setting. For most users ticking it brought a 
      severe slowdown.
      On upgrading it is set to 0 (unticked).
      It will be kept as a tweak: NetworkNetServerEnum
    - Configuration | General | Safety Belts, Network | Network | Pre-check 
      availability of servers: Removed the setting. For most users ticking it 
      brought a severe slowdown.
      On upgrading it is set to 0 (unticked).
      It will be kept as a tweak: NetworkPrecheckServers
    - Upgrading: Automatic compatibility adjustment for your personal settings 
      is not supported anymore when upgrading from versions below v10.00 (i.e. 
      from before 2011-07-05 12:00). If you do that now not all of your settings 
      might be successfully migrated to the current version. Easy workaround: 
      First upgrade to 21.10.0000, then upgrade from there.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.124.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.124.lng is uploaded.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v21.10.0002 - 2020-09-18 15:43
    + Added tweak to recursively set the Archive attribute on all contained 
      items of a folder that has been renamed.
        RenameFolderSetArchiveBit=1
      Many backup programs rely on this bit to decide what has to be backed up 
      but Windows does not care for it by itself. Now XYplorer cares.
      Might be raised to UI later.
    ! Configuration | General | Tree and List | List | Select next item after 
      delete and move: If this option was OFF then any selections in the source 
      list (selections that were done after the operation was started) were lost 
      after a move or delete operation had completed. Fixed.
    ! Dual Startup Path: Did not support a special path as first path. Fixed.
      Now this command line works: /fresh Desktop||Downloads

v21.10.0001 - 2020-09-17 09:35
    ! 64-bit Preview: Drag-dropping a PDF file that was being 64-bit-previewed by an 
      Adobe preview handler could lead to a "File in Use" error because the 
      preview handler was not yet finished releasing file. Fixed. Now it's made 
      sure that the file is fully released before the file operation starts.
    * Preview64: Updated to 1.0.0.16.
    * Floating Preview: Now PDFs show the extracted text, not the raw text, when 
      PDF is featured in Configuration | Preview | Previewed Formats | 
      Categories | Text Files. That's consistent with the behavior of Preview 
      Tab and Preview Pane.

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

v21.10.0000 - 2020-09-15 21:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ 64-bit Preview. Some file types, e.g. WebP graphic files (WEBP), 
      SolidWorks files (SLDASM, SLDDRW, SLDPRT) or OpenOffice files (ODP, ODS, 
      ODT), implement their preview not via preview handlers but via thumbnail 
      providers. This has always been supported for 32-bit thumbnail providers. 
      However, in some cases those thumbnail providers are only provided in the 
      64-bit flavor (e.g. SolidWorks). Those are supported now as well, so there 
      are SolidWorks and many other previews now.
  +++ Quick Find Files. The Quick Search dialog now offers a Quick Find Files 
      mode where you can remote control the Find Files tab in the Info Panel 
      (F12). That way you can quickly do a Find Files search without first 
      opening that tab and without having it in the way of the search results 
      listing.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of The Surfrajettes.

v21.00.0019 - 2020-09-14 18:39
    * Quick Search Dialog: Had to remove that newbie-friendly subtitle line. The 
      layout was broken in several contexts, and there is no way to make it 
      consistently look good.
      Instead I added that info to the toolbar button tooltip.
    ! Configuration | Colors and Styles | Highlights & Dark Mode | Dark mode | 
      Adaptive colors: If unticked then the text color of "Selections in 
      non-focused controls" (Highlights & Dark Mode) was not correctly applied. 
      Fixed.

    + Quick Search: Now in the Quick Search dialog you can use Ctrl+F to toggle

    ! Mouse Down Blow Up: MDBU on thumbnails had stopped working for folders.
      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.
