    ! Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Create all thumbnails at once: 
      Didn't do what it said anymore. Fixed.

Code: Select all

v20.20.0001 - 2019-06-19 21:06
    + SC get got a new named argument "list_history" to return the history of 
      the current pane, or of a particular tab of the current pane.
      Syntax: get("list_history", [separator=CRLF], [tab_index])
        separator:    String to place between items.
                      Defaults to CRLF (line feed).
        tab_index:    Tab index (first tab = 0) for a tab-specific history.
                      If missing then the global history of the pane is returned.                   
        return:       List of historical locations (identical to menu Go | History), 
                      ordered in backward chronology from latest to earliest.
                      The current position in history is ignored.
      Examples:
        text get("list_history");       //global history of the current pane
        text get("list_history", , 1);  //history of the 2nd tab of the current pane
    * Restore Previous Clipboard: When you restore the previous clipboard and 
      the current clipboard had not been stored because XYplorer was not in the 
      foreground then the current clipboard is stored now, right before the 
      previous clipboard is restored. That way you can go back to it on the next 
      Restore Previous Clipboard. Sounds complicated but is useful.
    ! Previous Clipboard Peek: If there were files the number was falsely shown 
      as "0" (zero) in the tooltip although the files were correctly listed. 
      Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

Download: https://www.xyplorer.com/download.php

Code: Select all

v20.20.0000 - 2019-06-18 18:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Append to Clipboard. The new Append command allows you to append files to 
      the files that are currently in the clipboard. Hunt and collect.
  +++ Clipboard Peek. Now the "Edit Clipboard" button provides a real-time 
      indication of the current clipboard contents, so you always know whether 
      there is something in the clipboard and of what kind it (text, image, 
      files). The clipboard is no black box anymore.
  +++ Restore Previous Clipboard. Ever accidentally lost some valuable clipboard 
      contents? Argh! Relax. The previous state of the clipboard is now 
      automatically stored whenever the clipboard changes, and you can toggle 
      the current and the previous state by using the new Restore Previous 
      Clipboard command.
  +++ Nested Hamburger. Now the Hamburger menu in the Breadcrumb Bar ("Recently 
      in the Breadcrumb Bar I asked for the Hamburger menu...") supports submenus.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of The Last Internationale.

    + Dark Mode: Now the tweak "DarkAdaptive" also controls the Highlight colors 
      in the Tree (Favorites | Set Highlight Color...).
    * Address Bar: The (later hard-coded) tweak ABAutoWildcards was not a good 
      idea and has been removed. Now if you want wildcard matching of locations 
      you have to pass at least one * (asterisk) in the path.
    ! SC obfuscate: Popup text boxes were obfuscated on obfuscation level 1. 
      That should not be the case. Fixed.
    ! Name Collision on Rename: The suffix option treated folders with dots in 
      the name as if they had extensions (which folders by definition never 
      have). Fixed.

      You can even toggle past and present while the tooltip it shown. Don't do

Code: Select all

v20.10.0017 - 2019-06-14 20:10
    * Edit | Paste Special | Restore Previous Clipboard: Now new clipboard 
      contents are only auto-stored while XYplorer's main window is in the 
      foreground. Advantages:
      - Things that were put to the clipboard by XYplorer are protected and can 
        be restored, regardless what other apps might do when XYplorer is in the 
        background.
      - XYplorer is not busy eating CPU cycles only because other apps shuffle 
        stuff through the clipboard.
    + Custom File Icons: Now you can append a comment to a definition, separated 
      by //. Any spaces before the comment separator are trimmed off.
      Example:
        *.txt>Houellebecq.ico //comment
    + Custom File Icons: Now you can define custom icons that are used only if 
      there is no embedded specific icon.
      Simply use the switch /d (think "default"), for example:
        *.exe /d>NiceGenericExe.ico //only for EXEs without embedded specific icon

v20.10.0014 - 2019-06-13 19:00
    + Edit | Paste Special: Added command "Restore Previous Clipboard". The 
      previous state of the clipboard is now automatically stored whenever the 
      clipboard changes, and you can toggle the current and the previous state 
      by using the new command.
      Note that when the clipboard is empty then "Restore Previous Clipboard" 
      will toggle the two previous non-empty states.
    * SC ClipStore:
      - Now there are only 2 states, now and before. KISS. Before, there were 4 
        states.
      - Now "0" works as an alternative to "r".
        Note: Since "Restore Previous Clipboard" with auto-storage is 
        implemented it's pretty pointless to use this argument while something 
        is in the clipboard (since it would just restore clipboard to itself). 
        It only makes sense if clipboard is empty.
      - Well, the whole command is not that useful anymore since we have 
        "Restore Previous Clipboard". Might just as well remove it...

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v20.10.0012 - 2019-06-13 13:17
    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: ClipStore
      Action: Stores and retrieves clipboard contents.
      Syntax: ClipStore [mode="s"]
        mode:    
          s = [Default] Add current clipboard contents to the store.
          r = Restore clipboard from the previously added contents.
          e = Erase the store.
          [any numeric value] = Go this number of steps forward (positive) or 
              backward (negative) in the store and restore clipboard from there.
      Remarks:
        - The store holds the following types of clipboard contents:
          - Text
          - Image
          - Files (along with the effect: cut or copied)
        - The store holds 4 states.
          When storing the oldest state will be overwritten by the newest state 
          when all 4 states have been used up.
          When restoring you can endlessly cycle the store in both directions.
        - When you restore the clipboard from a state before the last added 
          state the internal pointer is moved to that state (like it is natural 
          and expected in a history). So, repeatedly calling
            ClipStore -1;
          will move you backwards through the previous states. Unused states are 
          skipped, so when only 2 states have been added to the store, the above 
          command will switch between these two states.
        - The store is not preserved across sessions.
        - There will be a corresponding GUI function later (which auto-updates 
          the store when the clipboard contents change).
      Examples:
        ClipStore;      //add current clipboard contents to the store
        ClipStore "r";  //restore clipboard from the previously added contents
        ClipStore -1;   //restore clipboard to the state before the previously added state (and move pointer to that state)
        ClipStore -2;   //restore clipboard to the state before the state before the previously added state (and move pointer to that state)

Code: Select all

v20.10.0010 - 2019-06-12 12:40
    + Dark Mode: Added tweak "DarkAdaptive" by which you can make custom colors 
      a bit less bright in Dark Mode. Easier to the eye IMO.
        DarkAdaptive=1
      The following colors are affected:
      - Label Backgrounds
      - Color Filter Backgrounds
      - Catalog Custom Colored Backgrounds
      Note that Label Backgrounds had been hard-coded to DarkAdaptive=1 before, 
      and now they are non-adaptive by default. So your labels will look 
      different now (brighter) in Dark Mode, exactly as you defined them in 
      Configuration (unless you set the new tweak).
      
      To make it easier to test the effect of the tweak I made it accessible 
      through the yet undocumented scripting command "dark". Enable Dark Mode 
      and ensure that any of the above listed affected colors are visible, then 
      run one of these scripts as fit:
        dark 3:=-2;   //toggle DarkAdaptive
        dark 3:=0;    //set DarkAdaptive=0
        dark 3:=1;    //set DarkAdaptive=1
      
    % Tagging via Script: No more Status Bar icon shake effect when tagging is 
      done via scripting. Makes it much faster.
    ! SC tagitems: The back pane was not updated when needed. Fixed.

    * Catalog in Dark Mode: Now custom colored items are drawn as defined. 
      Before, the colors were auto-adjusted to something barely recognizable.
      So, Catalog custom colors are now treated like Color Filter colors: They 
      are exactly the same in Light and Dark Mode.
    ! Clipboard Markers: Were drawn in black as long as the Drag Status Box 
      ("Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Safety Belts | Show 
      drag status box") had never been used. Fixed.
    ! Toolbar: Buttons "Remove any Label" and "Find by Label" were wrongly drawn 
      in Light Mode since 20190608. Fixed.

    + Toolbar | Edit Clipboard: This button now gives a real time feedback of 
      the state of the clipboard. It knows 5 states:
      - Empty
      - Text
      - Image
      - Files (cut)
      - Files (copied)
      Not totally happy with the graphics yet, but that will come easy when 
      inspiration strikes. The functionality was the tricky part, and that seems 
      to work alright so far.
    + Image Preview: Added JFIF to the default image extensions.
    * Breadcrumb Bars | Hamburger: Now the "Customize Menu..." menu pops on 
      plain right-click, no CTRL necessary anymore.
      And the "Customize Menu" dialog is a little bigger now.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.113.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.113.lng is uploaded.
