Code: Select all

v19.80.0103 - 2019-03-15 13:16
    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | Templates: Added option "Maximum 
      length of generated filenames (0 = unlimited)" where you can set a length 
      limit in number of characters.
      The <subject> field is cut down first, then if still needed the end of the 
      name is cut off.
    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | Templates | Dropped Messages: Now also 
      emails dropped from Thunderbird are processed along the user settings in 
      this section.
    ! Dropping Messages: The extra temp folder used for this job was not removed 
      after dropping. Fixed.
    ! Dropping Messages: Unicode From / To names were not always decoded 
      correctly from UTF-8. Fixed.
    + Drag Status Box: Now it shows the count of the dragged items also when 
      dragging from other apps into XYplorer.
    + SC pasteto enhanced: Now it can handle textual clipboard contents just 
      like "Paste Text As Item(s)". Set bit 1 flags to enable it.
      Name: PasteTo
      Action: Pastes the clipboard contents to the specified destination.
      Syntax: pasteto [destination], [flags]
        destination:  [optional] folder to paste the clipboard contents.
                      Defaults to current path.
        flags:    (bit field)
          1 = Paste also textual clipboard contents.
      Examples:
        pasteto;      //paste here (items on clipboard)
        pasteto , 1;  //paste here (items or textual clipboard contents)
        pasteto "C:\Test";    //paste to C:\Test (items on clipboard)
        pasteto "C:\Test", 1; //paste to C:\Test (items or textual clipboard contents)

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v19.80.0102 - 2019-03-14 18:21
    + Edit | Paste Special: Added command "Paste Text As Item(s)" by which you 
      can paste a copy of the item(s) referred to by textual clipboard contents.
      - More than one item is possible, separated by | or by line feed (CRLF). 
        Both separators can be mixed. Empty lines/elements are auto-removed.
      - XYplorer native and environment variables are allowed.
      - Relative paths are resolved relative to the current path.
      - Leading and trailing spaces are trimmed on each item.
      - Folders are copied with their contents (of course).
      - URLs are supported as well. But only one at a time.
      Examples:
        Text on clipboard       Action
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        C:\Program Files (x86)\XYplorer\XYplorer Website.url
                                Pastes a copy of this file into the current location.
                                
        <xy>                    Pastes a copy of the current XYplorer.exe into the current location.
        
        <xydata>\ks.dat         Pastes a copy of these 2 files into the current location.
        <xydata>\pv.dat
        
        <xydata>\ks.dat|<xydata>\pv.dat   Pastes a copy of these 3 files into the current location.
        <xydata>\servers.dat
        
        https://www.xyplorer.com/download/xyplorer_full.zip
                                Pastes (downloads) a copy of this file into the current location.
                                
      Usage Examples:
      - A colleague mails you a path to some file on the intranet. You copy the 
        path from the email to the clipboard, then use "Paste Text As Item(s)" 
        to create a copy of that file in your current folder.
      - A colleague mails you the URL to some package in the web. You copy the 
        URL from the email to the clipboard, then use "Paste Text As Item(s)" 
        to download that file into your current folder.
      - Equally you can fetch download links on the web via clipboard and grab 
        those items by "Paste Text As Item(s)" without going via the Browser 
        Download to the Download folder.
      Tips:
      - Note that multiple source items can even be in totally different 
        locations. You are prompted whether to Rich Copy or not in that case.
      - Have the Edit Clipboard button in the Toolbar. Hover it to see what's in 
        the clipboard, right-click it to quickly access all the interesting 
        commands.
        
    * Toolbar | Recent File Operations: Replaced the old icon by a new one: A 
      green right arrow.
    * Installer: From now on when updating an installation (portable or not) the 
      file Startup.ini is not overwritten nor created if missing. That way a 
      portable installation (by way of a missing Startup.ini) remains portable.
    ! Miscellaneous | Focus Functions | Next/Previous Type Ahead Match: always 
      used "Match anywhere" regardless of the setting under "Configuration | 
      Find and Filter | Filters & Type Ahead Find | Type Ahead Find | Enable 
      type ahead find". Fixed.
    ! Dark Mode: When started in light mode the scrollbars were not darkened 
      after switching to dark mode. 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.

    * Tags | Load Tags Database...: Now when you enter a non-existing database 
      it is created right away (as an empty database with headers only). Before, 
      it was only created on the next Save Settings.
      FYI, any missing subfolders in the path are silently created.
    * Tags | Load Tags Database...: Now when you enter a non-existing database 
      it is created completely virgin. Before, it had inherited the current 
      Extra Tags definitions.

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

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

Code: Select all

v19.80.0000 - 2019-03-12 14:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Multi-User-Tagging. The concept of Multi-User-Tagging, i.e. sharing file 
      tags within a networked team, is around for quite a while in XYplorer, but 
      the first implementation lacked power, comfort, and elegance. Not anymore.
      If you are looking for a way to implement a shared tagging system, you 
      found it. Easy setup, fast automatic real-time synchronization, access 
      control, and a large number of independent fields (Label, Tags, Comment, 
      and 16 freely definable Extra Tags) for each file.
      Give it a try, annotate a file and have all your team members see your 
      notes in real-time in their file manager. And see their comments in your 
      file manager. Your team is fully connected.
  +++ Status Log. Now the last 1000 changes in the Status Bar are permanently 
      logged. It might be interesting to see what those rapidly changing Status 
      Bar messages actually said, or what exactly you were doing 15 minutes ago. 
      Now you can find out.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of Fanny, "The Godmothers of 
      Chick Rock."
