v20.50.0107 - 2019-11-01 13:46
    ! Removable Drives: Pull out a USB flash drive crashed the app under certain 
      conditions and on Win10 only. Fix #2.
    ! Scripting: The fix (from v20.40.0005) concerning repeatedly loading the 
      same resource file needed some more polishing. Polished again.
    ! Swap Bases: Did not work well with items without an extension. Fixed.
    ! File | File Special | Swap Names: The Attr column was temporarily filled 
      with wrong values when folder names were swapped. Fixed.

:!: 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.

    ! Custom Copy: Moves to mount points on the same volume were incorrectly 
      seen as intra-volume moves even if the mount point target was on another

    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0154.
    ! Configuration | General | Tree and List | Tree | Show localized folder 
      names: If enabled the Hover Box would not work in the Tree over localized 
      folder names. Fixed.

      conditions and on Win10 only. Fixed.
    ! Hangs forever after executing SC #1048 under certain conditions (since 
      20191005). Fixed.
    ! MP3 Preview: Some files did not play correctly because of a wrong bitrate 
      detection. Fixed.

    ! Configuration | Information | Tags | Popup by tag columns right-click: The 
      extended tags context menu in the Tags column was shown for multiple 
      selected items even when none of the selected items had a tag. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability | Mouse | Middle-click 
      goes to file in new tab: Could cause a crash when done during a search on 
      one of the search results if the tree is locked. Fixed. Under these 
      conditions the middle-click will now be ignored as long as the search is 
      busy.

      select: Did also work when the window was in the background (and then 
      moved the window to the foreground). Fixed.
    ! Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability | Mouse | Point to 
      select: Triggered selection when hovering the whole row but that should 
      happen only when hovering the caption, of course. Fixed.

    + Configuration | Information | Tags: Added option "Also on Full Row 
      Select". Tick it to make Tag columns clickable also in Full Row Select 
      mode.
      The following change from v20.40.0018 - 2019-09-27 13:39 is now obsolete:
        Solution: From now on when the clicked item is already selected then 
        "Toggle tags by column click" is ignored on Full Row Select.      
    + Help | About XYplorer: Now you can hide your personal license data. 
      Right-click the license name (e.g. "Lifetime License Pro") and toggle 
      "Show License Data" in the context menu. This allows you to stay under 
      cover in live streaming contexts.
      The setting is remembered across sessions.
    * Configuration | Jump to Setting: Now any filter is remembered across 
      various openings of Configuration.
    > Configuration | Jump to Setting: FYI, F3 toggles between the last filter 
      and no filter.
    ! Miscellaneous | General Functions | Toggle Main Menu: When toggled off the 
      main window in normal state started up with a phantom bar at the bottom 
      since 20190914. Fixed.
    ! Preview Pane: Videos were played in a floating window instead of within 
      the pane since 20191005. Fixed.

v20.50.0003 - 2019-10-10 19:58
    + Auto-Refresh: Search results are normally not auto-refreshed because it is 
      assumed you want to look at the results as they were in the moment of the 
      search and don't want to be bothered by constant live updates and newly 
      starting searches, which also can be time-consuming depending on the 
      nature of the search.
      That said I now added an experimental tweak to watch and auto-refresh also 
      search results (when the general Auto-Refresh is enabled):
        WatchFind=1
    ! Color Filters: Special folders Links, Desktop, Documents, Downloads, 
      [User] were not recognized as folders (pattern "attr:d") in Tree. Fixed.

v20.50.0001 - 2019-10-09 19:03
    + Find Files and Quick Search: Experimentally added support for Generic File 
      Types as name pattern.
      Examples:
        {:Video}
        NOT {:Video}
        :{:Image} AND prop:#AspectRatio: 16:9
    * SC editconf: Now the filter box is focused when the dialog is opened.
    * Help | List All Commands...: Now any previous filter is preselected in 
      the filter box. Makes it easier to type a new one.
    % Quick Search: Now the "/p" switch internally implies "/limitperdir=1".
    ! Quick Search: A pattern like "/p /types={:Video}" was wrongly shown as 
      "//p /types={:Video}" in the Quick Search when editing it. Fixed.
    ! Thumbnails: Removed the fix from v20.40.0029 - 2019-10-07 22:18. It did 
      not really fix it completely, and had some undesired side effects (too 
      early list resort while renaming folders).
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

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

Code: Select all

v20.50.0000 - 2019-10-08 18:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Filter By Properties. Now you can filter the file list by each of the 
      hundreds of available item properties. E.g. you can show only those photos 
      with a certain aspect ratio, or only those MP3s from a certain artist.
  +++ Filter By Lengths. Now you can filter the file list by the item name 
      lengths. E.g. you can show only those items with 12 or less characters in 
      the name, or only items longer than 259 characters.
  +++ Focus Next Selected Item. Now you can assign a keyboard shortcut of your 
      choice to each of two new commands that move the focus to the next or 
      previous selected item. Quite useful to quickly browse through the 
      currently selected items while giving the mouse a rest.
  +++ Full Name Column Select. Having a hard time hitting the name of a short 
      named file? Now you have the option to use the full width of the name 
      column as click target. Should increase your hits.
  +++ Shuffle Your Files. There is a new dice shaped button on the toolbar. If 
      you are feeling lucky and bored at the same time you can use it to shuffle 
      your image, sound, or video collections.
  +++ Fat Recent Location Pin. Now the current path pin is drawn fatter than the 
      others. So you know where you are at a glance.
  +++ Quick MIDI Preview. Now the Quick Audio Preview supports MIDI files.
  +++ Set Extension. Now the dialog has a Most Recently Used (MRU) list.
  +++ Flexible Size Format. This format has been improved to take even less 
      horizontal space in the Size column.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of The Sweet.
