    * Revision: The recent changes did not cut it eventually. Roll back to the 
      v20.50.0202 state. Only "Pre-check availability of servers" will stay on by 
      default.

    * Configuration | General | Safety Belts, Network | Network | Fast network 
      enumeration: Now off by factory default even on non-Win10 systems. It 
      turned out the it's fast because it uses an internal cache but this cache 
      can be stale for a long time (15 minutes, 30 minutes?). Rather spend a 
      little time on valid information.
    * Configuration | General | Safety Belts, Network | Network | Pre-check 
      availability of servers: For the same reason (stale cache) this routine 
      from now on never uses the "Fast network enumeration" method but always 
      the more reliable one, regardless of the setting of "Fast network 
      enumeration".
    * Configuration | General | Safety Belts, Network | Network | Pre-check 
      availability of servers: Now on by factory default.

      routine to gain speed and compatibility. Now the setting of "Configuration 
      | General | Safety Belts, Network | Network | Fast network enumeration" is 
      honored by this routine.
      The "net view" command used in previous versions is not used anymore.

Code: Select all

v20.50.0201 - 2019-11-10 13:44
    + Folder View Settings: Now you can use volume labels instead of drive 
      letters to specify the folder to apply the setting to. E.g.:
        System:\
      Of course, this general setting has to be ticked to make it work: 
      Configuration | General | Controls & More | Miscellaneous | Support volume 
      labels in paths.
    + Scripting: Now the following scripting commands support "<crlf>" as an alternative list 
      separator (when it is present in the list) where previously only "|" was supported:
        - attrstamp()
        - copyas, moveas
        - delete
        - hashlist
        - loadtree
        - moveto, copyto, backupto -> source parameter
        - openwith
        - rename
        - report()
        - selectitems
        - tag
        - timestamp
        - wipe
      FYI, the advantage of "<crlf>" is that you can feed your data line by line 
      which is much human-friendler than a |-separated string of data.
    * File | To Clipboard: The following commands now use consistently the 
      System Date Format ("Short Date" and "Long Time"):
      - Compact File Info                               (was System Date Format before)
      - Extended File Info                              (was List Date Format before)
      - Name(s), Bytes, Modified[, Version]             (was ISO 8601 Date Format before)
      - Name(s), Bytes, Modified[, Version], Path       (was ISO 8601 Date Format before)
      - Name(s), Bytes, Modified[, Version], Path, MD5  (was ISO 8601 Date Format before)
    * Network Browsing: The recent enhancements had some undesired side effects, 
      e.g. unnecessary question mark icons in various places. Mitigated.
    ! Floating Preview and Full Screen Preview: No context menu was popped when 
      the preview too large to be completely visible and some other conditions. 
      Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

    * Catalog | Click and Tag: Now the category is pre-filled with the Tag List 
      (i.e. the Tags MRU), not with the currently used tags anymore. Also the 
      "Update Category" command will use the Tag List now.
      Note that the Tag List can be edited here: Tools | List Management | Tag 
      List...
    ! SC runret: Encoding issues with non-English codepages. Tried a fix.
    ! Configuration: Some checkboxes at the bottom of two pages were hidden since 
      a couple of days ago. Fixed.
    ! Audio Preview: Volume was magically decreasing with each preview on 
      certain system. Tried a fix.

    + SC get loadtimes: Now you can pass a threshold in msecs to filter the 
      loadtimes listing. The default is 10 msecs, i.e. only events that took at 
      least 10 msecs are listed.
      Syntax: get("loadtimes", [msecs=10])
      Examples:
        text get("loadtimes", 100);       //threshold 100 msecs
        text <get loadtimes 0>, 800, 800; //no threshold at all
    * SC get loadtimes: Now if a threshold is passed the first and last events 
      are always shown, no matter how long they took.

      recent speed enhancements.
      Tip: To have a smooth startup in shaky network situations also tick 
      Configuration | General | Startup & Exit | No network browsing on startup.
    * SC get loadtimes: Now only events that took at least 10 msecs are listed. 
      Some more events have been added for better debugging.

    % Network Browsing: Accidentally attempting to browse an unavailable server 
      (e.g. in the Mini Tree) will result in a much shorter delay now (around 2 
      seconds as opposed to maybe 15). However, it might take some time after a 
      server has become unavailable before this speed improvement becomes real 
      because Windows keeps stale internal info on servers for up to almost an 
      hour. Usually though 5 minutes should be enough for the dust to settle.
      You can check the state of affairs using this script; in theory it should 
      list all and only the available servers:
        text runret("net view");

    ! Remote Desktop Connection: When pasting an item from a remote desktop to

    + Tab Bars: Now you can modify the height of the Tab Bars on-the-fly by 
      Ctrl+Shift+Wheel over any of them. I thought they looked a bit squeezed on 
      today's screens... and some of you might want larger click or drop 
      targets. BTW, it's in 2-pixel steps to avoid certain rounding issues with 
      the vertical centering of the contents.
      The Status Bar shows the altered value in relation to the factory default.
    + Dropping and Pasting Messages from Outlook: Now you get an overwrite 
      prompt where necessary. Before, new filenames were auto-generated by 
      suffixing numbers.
    + Quick Search: Added tweak to set the default to not include subfolders, 
      i.e. to run a non-recursive search.
        FindNameSearchNoRecurse=1
    * Info Panel | Report | To File: Removed the "View report?" prompt after 
      saving the file. It was just annoying.
