Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

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

Code: Select all

v20.60.0000 - 2019-11-20 18:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Highlight Hovered Items. Now hovered items are optionally highlighted 
      everywhere in the app. Huge usability boost.
  +++ Custom Tab Bar Height. Now you can modify the height of the tab bars 
      on-the-fly by Ctrl+Shift+Wheel over any of them. Makes a larger click and 
      drop target, and a lighter look.
  +++ Volume Labels In Folder View Settings. Now you can use volume labels 
      instead of drive letters to specify the drive or folder to apply the 
      settings to. Lets you store individual settings for your removable drives 
      independently of ever-changing drive letters.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of Marc Bolan.

    * Highlight Hovered Items: Removed this morning's modification to keep it 
      all plain, simple, and consistent for now. Refinements later.
      But, hey, if you liked this morning's modification here's a tweak to have 
      it back:
        HighlightHoveredItemsProps=1
    * Updated the help file.

    * Highlight Hovered Items: Now in Details view without Full Row Select the 
      parts that will not select the item when clicked are only shaded and 
      underlined when hovered, not shaded and boxed anymore. Before it was 
      misleading since the white space did not really look white anymore.

  %%% Non-Details Views (List, Small Icons, Tiles, Thumbnails): Highlighting 
      hovered items, selecting and unselecting single items, and some other 
      things are *much* faster now. Before (ever since!), a whole column/row was 
      repainted when one of its items changed, now it's only the single affected 
      item. The more items visible in the file list the more notable the speed 
      increase will be.
    % Highlight Hovered Items: Much faster in non-Details views.
    ! Highlight Hovered Items: Fixed a couple of glitches.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.117.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.117.lng is uploaded.

    + Highlight Hovered Items: Added it to all small lists.
    ! Toolbar, Tabs, Breadcrumb, List column headers, List, Tree, Catalog: 
      Wherever there was a hover effect in XYplorer a non-focused top-level 
      window ("Always On Top") would not receive the input focus when the mouse 
      entered directly from a hovered control. Fixed.
    % Highlight Hovered Items: Now the border of the highlight is drawn on top 
      of any other colors, which makes the effect stand out more clearly.

    * Highlight Hovered Items: If "Configuration | Colors and Styles | 
      Highlights & Dark Mode | Selections" is set to "Windows Theme Style" AND 
      Dark Mode is off AND Full Row Select is off then the hover highlight in 
      Details view will NOT be drawn in Windows Theme Style. That way it does 
      not mislead users coming from File Explorer to assume they can click 
      anywhere in the row to select the item.

      option "Highlight hovered items". Tick it to highlight the hovered items

      Currently it's only implemented for the List.
