v21.40.0002 - 2020-12-27 13:52
    + Hover Box on Tabs: Now also supports a Folder Content Preview for Paper 
      Folders (i.e., for tabs showing a Paper Folder). Currently there is no 
      sorting applied (so the listing is in the original order of the saved 
      Paper Folder).
    ! Hover Box on Tabs: Fixed a couple of glitches.
    ! Configuration | General | Custom Event Actions: The list had various 
      issues when horizontally scrolled (needed with long translations or larger 
      font sizes). 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.

    * Toolbar: Font size for button labels too small with small buttons since

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

v21.40.0000 - 2020-12-23 16:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Custom Event Actions. A major new feature that provides you with an easy 
      to use yet powerful usability booster. For example, you now can freely 
      decide what should happen when a folder is middle-clicked, or when the 
      status bar is double-clicked, and so on. It can be simple things like 
      "Open in new background tab" or "Go up", but it can also be much more. If 
      you know a bit about scripting, Custom Event Actions can be a real game 
      changer. And if you don't you now have a good reason to learn it.
  +++ Sorting the Folder Contents Preview. Now you can control the sort order in 
      the Folder Contents Preview, which also includes the Hover Box on folders. 
      Quite likely you want to see the recent files on top. Now you can.
  +++ Shorten Filenames. Finally the app offers a way to shorten the names of a 
      whole bunch of files. You can cut them down from both ends.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of Black Pumas.

    * Branch View: No more indenting in a non-recursive Multi Branch View (a 
      paradox thing that can be achieved by search switch /n).
    ! Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up | Mouse Up on Folder Icons | 
      Sorted by: Sort order "Name" did not obey to "Configuration | General | 
      Sort and Rename | Sort | Sort method" when "Configuration | General | Sort 
      and Rename | Sort | Sort filenames by base" was ticked. Fixed. Now it 
      obeys independently of that setting.

    * List: In the drives listing (This PC) the "Used Space" column now shows 
      free disk space bars like in Tiles views when "Bars" is selected for size 
      graphics (right-click the column header to choose your preferred size 
      graphics).
    * List: In the drives listing (This PC) the "Per Cluster" column is now 
      hard-coded to the "KB (Rounded Up)" size format. Before, it showed the 
      exact bytes. That was to much information since nowadays, AFAIK, cluster 
      size is always a multiple of 1 KB.
      The right-click menu of that column does not offer size format choices 
      anymore since they don't affect this column.
    * SC folderreport: Did falsely default to the selected list item (since 
      2019-01-27 19:12). Not anymore. Now it defaults to the current folder, 
      regardless of the current list selection.

    * Shell Context Menu: It's not shown anymore for the targets of links 
      (shortcuts) to network locations. It just takes too long if those 
      locations are not available. Instead you'll see a reduced menu.

v21.30.0046 - 2020-12-17 21:45
    + Rename Special | Batch Rename: Added a simple way to cut down a batch of 
      filenames. You can make them shorter from both ends by stating a max 
      length and a left offset by way of the new switch "/cut [start,]length". 
      Examples:
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        Switch            Effect
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        /cut 10           cut everything right of the first 10 characters
        /cut 2,10         cut everything left of the 2nd character, then cut everything 
                          right of the remaining 10 characters
        /cut 2,0          cut everything left of the 2nd character, take all the rest
        /cut 2,           (same as above)
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Notes:
      - The space right after /cut can be omitted,
      - This switch cannot be combined with any other switch or pattern.      
        So you just use this switch, nothing else in the name field.
      - Only the base of the filenames is affected, never the extension.

      Dropped Messages) but fell back to "Now". Fixed.

v21.30.0039 - 2020-12-15 16:08
    + Custom Event Actions: Added new section "Clicking on Status Bar" with 
      three new events:
      - Double-click on status bar
      - Left-click on status bar
      - Middle-click on status bar
      Each offers the same actions.
      Tip: The variable <CEA_ClickedItem> holds the index of the clicked section 
      (1, 2, or 3).
    - Removed tweak ClickSBToggleIP. Replaced by CEA "Left-click on status bar".
    + Custom Event Actions: When these events run a script, a new variable 
      <CEA_ClickedItems> (plural!) is set with a |-separated list of all 
      currently selected and clicked items (you can middle-click 
      multi-selections without losing them):
        - Middle-click on folder
        - Middle-click on file
      Folders in that list have a trailing backslash.
    * Custom Event Actions: <CEA_ClickedItem> now always returns the item 
      without trailing backslash, like all other XY native variables.
      And, the value is reset (to "") after the script is finished.
    + SC get got a new named argument "selecteditemspathnamesslashed". Identical 
      to "selecteditemspathnames" but returned folders come with a trailing 
      backslash.
      Syntax 1: get("selecteditemspathnamesslashed", [separator=CRLF], [pane])
      Syntax 1: <get selecteditemspathnamesslashed [separator=CRLF] [pane]>
      Examples:
        echo get("selecteditemspathnamesslashed");

    + Custom Event Actions: When these events run a script, a new variable 
      <CEA_ClickedItem> is set with the clicked folder or file.
        - Middle-click on folder
        - Middle-click on file
    + Variable <get trigger> enhanced: Now it can return the context in which 
      the current script was called. To return this info set the "mode" 
      parameter to "context".
      Syntax: <get trigger [mode=mousebtn]>
        mode:
          context:    Returns the context in which the current script was called.
        return:
          0 = manually started
          1 = Custom Column
          2 = User Button
          4 = UDC (User-Defined Command)
          8 = CEA (Custom Event Action)
      Note:
        The value is reset after the script is finished.
      Examples:
        echo "<get trigger context>";
        status get("trigger", "context");
