Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v20.30.0016 - 2019-09-04 21:23
    + Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up: Added option "Fit width 
      only". If ticked then the blow up is shrunk so that the full width fits in 
      the view port, only vertical panning is possible, and the panning is 
      restricted to what's necessary to show the full height of the blow up.
      Like "Shrink to fit" the setting affects all instances of MDBU in XYplorer.
    * Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up | General: Changed the order 
      of options for cosmetic reasons.
    - Removed tweak ShrinkToFitNoMove from v14.50.0102 - 2014-09-23 20:09. Now 
      it's internally hardcoded to ON. It affected MDBU on thumbnails only 
      anyway, other MDBU never moved on "Shrink to fit".
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.

      you might get a "Location currently not available" message. Fixed.

Code: Select all

v20.30.0013 - 2019-09-02 12:25
  +++ Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | 64-bit Windows: Added option 
      "Use 64-bit IFilters". Tick it to make use of any installed 64-bit 
      IFilters and thus enable previewing and searching the textual contents of 
      complex document formats (e.g. Office files, PDF).
      
      Notes:
      - Notoriously Microsoft Office made it a habit to install only 64-bit 
        IFilters on a 64-bit system, even if the Office version itself is 
        32-bit. However, 64-bit IFilters are completely useless to other 32-bit 
        apps (Office itself does not need them).
      - From this version onwards XYplorer can optionally access those 64-bit 
        IFilters by way of a 64-bit helper process created by Contents64.exe, 
        which from now on is included in the distribution package.
        Contents64.exe (currently ver 1.3) has to be located in the path of 
        XYplorer.exe. The installer takes care of this.
      - In practical terms this means XYplorer can now text-preview (e.g. in the 
        Hover Box) and content-search Office and PDF files on 64-bit Windows.
      - Of course, the option is only offered under 64-bit Windows (it would be
        meaningless under 32-bit Windows).
      - The functionality is provided by the helper file Contents64.exe which 
        has to be located in the path of XYplorer.exe. The new download packages 
        contain this file.
      - Last not least, credits and a big thanks for designing and writing 
        Contents64.exe go to "Mesh" (from XY Beta Club)!

v20.30.0012 - 2019-08-31 13:39
    - Removed the tweak TabMatchSelectedWithCrumbPrio used to prioritize 
      "Configuration | Colors and Styles | Colors | Match selected tab with 
      breadcrumb bar" over Custom Colored Tabs from v19.90.0112 - 2019-05-16 
      13:14.
      Now the custom tab colors are always shown, whether the tab is selected or 
      not. If "Match selected tab with breadcrumb bar" is enabled then the 1 
      pixel tab border now shows the color hue of the Breadcrumb Bar.

      fix from v20.30.0008 - 2019-08-25 14:51 had issues).

    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: OutputFile
      Action: Lets you select a location for a file via the Windows Save As 
              common dialog.
      Syntax: outputfile([path], [file], [caption])
        path      The default path for the dialog. When left empty or non-existent, 
                  path defaults to the current path. In the latter case you are 
                  prompted whether to continue the script.
                  With or without trailing slash, it does not matter.
        file      Initial name of the file. Can be changed within the dialog.
        caption   The text that will be displayed as title of the window. If 
                  omitted it will be "Save As" in the local language.
        return    The full path/name of the selected existing or new file. 
      Remarks:
        - If you press Cancel, the script execution will be aborted.
        - The file is not saved, just the name is returned. Any saving has to be 
          done by a separate command.
      Examples:
        echo outputfile(,"Peace.jpg");
        echo outputfile(,"Peace.jpg", "Select Location...");
        echo outputfile("C:\Love","Peace.jpg", "Select Location...");

    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: Dark
      Action: Toggles Dark Mode.
      Syntax: dark [enable=-1], [darkness=-1], [darkcontrast=-1], [darkadaptive=-1]      
        enable         Turn Dark Mode on or off
                       -2 = toggle
                       -1 [default] = keep current setting
                       0 = off
                       1 = on
        darkness       Level of darkness
                       A number from 0 to 50 (factory default is 25)
                       -1 [default] = keep current setting
        darkcontrast   Text contrast in Dark Mode
                       A number from 0 to 30 (factory default is 15)
        darkadaptive   Turn the Dark Adaptive mode on or off (see Remarks)
                       -2 = toggle
                       -1 [default] = keep current setting
                       0 = off
                       1 = on
      Remarks:
        The Dark Adaptive mode makes custom colors a bit less bright in Dark Mode 
        and thus easier to the eye.
      Examples:
        dark 1;         // enable dark mode
        dark 0;         // disable dark mode
        dark -2         // toggle dark mode
        dark 1, 25, 15; // enable dark mode and set darkness level=25, text contrast=15
        dark 3:=-2;     // toggle DarkAdaptive
        dark 3:=0;      // set DarkAdaptive=0
        dark 3:=1;      // set DarkAdaptive=1
        dark 1, , , 1;  // enable dark mode and DarkAdaptive tweak
        dark 1, 3:=1;   // same as above  
    + SC get got two new named arguments, "darkness" and "darkcontrast". The 
      first returns the value of "Configuration | Colors and Styles | Highlights & 
      Dark Mode | Dark mode | Level of darkness (0 is darkest)", the second the 
      value of "Configuration | Colors and Styles | Highlights & Dark Mode | Dark 
      mode | Text contrast".
        echo get("darkness");
        echo get("darkcontrast");
    + Previewed Formats: Added DSD and DSF files (Sony's DSD Stream File) to the 
      previewed audio files. Note that this format is ID3V2 compliant and XY 
      will show the tags in the Preview Panel and in the MP3 columns.
      Of course, you will need a CODEC installed to actually preview these 
      files.
    ! Configuration | General | Tree and List | List | Select last used 
      subfolder: Didn't work inside HIDDEN folders if "Show hidden files and 
      folders" was off. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Rename | Show name length 
      while renaming: If ticked then the filename's base was not auto-selected 
      when the caption was wider than the list view and had to be internally 
      moved to the left to make the right end visible. Fixed.

    + Added tweak to control the Flexible Status Bar feature (v19.80.0120 - 
      2019-03-25 18:44).
        StatusBarFlexyWidth=1
      Factory default and previously hard-coded value is 1. So now you can turn 
      it off. Might raise it to UI later.
    * Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Create all thumbnails at once: Now 
      the Status Bar shows the current index and total number of files while 
      thumbnails are being created, e.g.:
        creating thumb 5/123: blah.jpg

    * Configuration | Information | Tags | Coloring style: If set to Whole Row 
      then the Label's background color now fills the whole column cell in views 
      List and Small Icons.
    ! Custom Columns: A certain if rare combination of commands in a Custom Column

      a crash. Fixed.
    ! Custom Columns: Another combination of commands in a Custom Column 
      defining script could lead to a bizarre refresh confusion in a Dual Pane 
      setup where files were listed in the wrong pane. Gosh. Fixed.
    ! SC wait: Returned error "Invalid parameter" when omitting the optional 
      msecs parameter. Fixed. Now this works as expected:
        wait; //minimal yield to the OS
    ! SC inputselect: Did not return the full path of file items when style 2048 
      (Show file items without the path) was combined with style 2 (checkboxes).
