Code: Select all

v20.00.0005 - 2019-05-25 11:32
    * List | Wheel Scroll Lines: From now on in Thumbnails and Tiles views the 
      wheel does exactly one line per notch. No matter the system value or your 
      custom value in Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Usability 
      | Wheel scroll lines.
    ! MLS: The button "Select Color..." in menu "View | Tab | Background 
      Color..." was not translated yet. Fixed. Of course, you will see the 
      translation only in the next language file release.
    ! Thumbnails: Unrendered thumbs could happen on fast wheeling. Fixed.
    ! Tab Switching by Mouse Wheel: Did not work yet on the 2nd pane. 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.

v20.00.0004 - 2019-05-24 13:49
    + Tab Switching by Mouse Wheel: Now you can en/disable switching Tabs by 
      wheel. Factory default is ON, but now you can turn it OFF. This is the key 
      if you are into tweaking:
        TabWheel=0
      But there is a comfy way too: Right-click the empty part of the Tab Bar, or 
      the "New Tab" or "Tab List" button, and you can toggle the setting via the 
      new menu item "Tab Switching by Mouse Wheel".
    + Miscellaneous | Layout: Added command "Reset Zoom" (#1081) with default 
      keyboard shortcut Ctrl+0. Use it to reset the main controls font zoom 
      level to the startup values of the current session. Affects all controls 
      ticked under Configuration | Colors and Styles | Fonts | Main Contents | 
      Apply to...
    + Toolbar | Zoom In / Zoom Out: Added a right-click menu to those buttons 
      featuring the new "Reset Zoom" command.
    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips | For junctions as well: From 
      now on if this option is ticked then a Hover Box is shown for a junction 
      even if "Configuration | General | Controls and More | Miscellaneous | 
      Resolve junctions" is OFF.
    ! Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | Default File Manager | 
      XYplorer is default file manager: The checkbox caption "Log to default 
      location" was rendered in an ugly way when disabled AND Dark Mode was 
      enabled. Fixed.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0145.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v20.00.0002 - 2019-05-23 12:31
    * Autosize Columns: In v19.40.0106 - 2018-12-03 20:22 I decided that columns 
      should never be autosized on startup since the app should be opened 
      exactly as it was closed.
      But, of course, if the startup folder is different from the shutdown 
      folder (e.g. via "Configuration | General | Startup & Exit | Permanent 
      startup path" or via command line) then Autosize Columns should set in. 
      And does now.
    ! Drag and Drop Context Menu: The wonderful "Go To Dragged Item" command was 
      not shown anymore on drops from the outside. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | File Operations | File Operations | Custom Copy Operations 
      | Configure...: The checkbox caption "Log to default location" was 
      rendered in an ugly way when disabled AND Dark Mode was enabled. Fixed.

v20.00.0001 - 2019-05-22 10:52
    + Find Files and Quick Search: Added switch /w by which the search will 
      match only whole words. It corresponds to the Whole Words checkbox on Info 
      Panel | Find Files | Name & Location.
      Examples:
        ultra /types=jpg    //return all JPG files with "ultra" in the name
        ultra /w /types=jpg //return all JPG files with "ultra" as whole word in the name
    ! Tabs: Selected tab of the inactive pane was wrongly colored in Dark Mode 
      under certain conditions. Fixed.

v19.90.0112 - 2019-05-16 13:14
    + SC tab enhanced: New operation "textcolor" sets the Custom Text Color of a 
      tab. The "data" parameter holds the color in RRGGBB format. Example:
        tab("textcolor", "CCCCCC"); // make the text of the current tab grey
    + SC tab enhanced: New operation "backcolor" sets the Custom Text Color of a 
      tab. The "data" parameter holds the color in RRGGBB format. Example:
        tab("backcolor", "008000"); // make the background of the current tab green        
    + SC tab enhanced: The operation "get" got a new data parameter "textcolor":
        echo tab("get", "textcolor", [index]);
      Returns the Custom Text Color (if any) of the tab referred to by index in 
      RRGGBB format. Example:
        echo tab("get", "textcolor"); //text color of the current tab
    + SC tab enhanced: The operation "get" got a new data parameter "backcolor":
        echo tab("get", "backcolor", [index]);
      Returns the Custom Back Color (if any) of the tab referred to by index in 
      RRGGBB format. Example:
        echo tab("get", "backcolor"); //background color of the current tab
    + Tweak to prioritize "Configuration | Colors and Styles | Colors | Match 
      selected tab with breadcrumb bar" over Custom Colored Tabs:
        TabMatchSelectedWithCrumbPrio=1
    + Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Usability: Added option 
      "Wheel scroll lines (0 = use system value)". Use it to set the number of 
      lines that are scrolled for each notch that the mouse wheel is rotated. 
      Notes:
      - Set it to 0 to use the global system value.
      - The actually scrolled lines will never exceed a whole page. So you can 
        set it to a high value (eg 1000) to always scroll the whole page.
      - The value -1 is reserved by Windows for "whole page", so that's another 
        way to always scroll the whole page.
      - Values -2 and less will scroll in reversed direction.
    * Trial Version: From now on the nag screen is only shown on first run (for 
      information) and on the last day of the trial period (day #30). The 
      current day of the trial period is shown in the title bar instead. 
      Friendly rules.
    ! Recent Location Pins: Pins still bled into the corners of the TPT snake. 
      Fixed.

v19.90.0110 - 2019-05-14 17:39
  +++ Custom Colored Tabs: Now tabs can be individually colored. To define the 
      colors use these new commands, which are also available in each tab 
      header's context menu:
      - View | Tab | Text Color...
      - View | Tab | Background Color...
      Notes:
      - The custom colors have to be specified in hexadecimal format (RRGGBB). 
        To go back to the default colors simply specify nothing.
      - Of course, the colors are stored across sessions, and with tabsets.
      - These custom colors overwrite all other colors that otherwise might 
        apply to a tab.
      - A new tab does not inherit the custom colors of the current tab. On the 
        other hand, a tab moved or copied to the other pane does take 
        along/inherit the custom colors.
      - Like Color Filters these colors do not auto-adjust to Dark Mode. They 
        just stay as defined all the time.
        Exceptions:
        - In Dual Pane mode the custom colors are made a little duller and 
          darker in the back pane, otherwise you would have problems to 
          distinguish front and back pane.
        - A hover-effect (brighten) is auto-applied to the custom colors when 
          required.
    * Recent Location Pins: Improved the painting so that the pin does no bleed 
      into the Tree Path Trace but kind of crosses over it. Looks better.

    * Recent Location Pins: Now the number defaults to 12. You can tweak this 
      number here, e.g. set it to 4:
        RLPCount=4
    ! Undo: There was no Undo possible when a bunch of items was partially 
      deleted (because some of them were locked, others not). Fixed.

    + Tools | Customize Tree: Added "Recent Location Pins". Shows pins at the 8 
      most recent locations in the tree.
      Notes:
      - Currently the color is taken from Tree Path Tracing.
      - The current location pin has a slightly bigger head with a white center.
      - No pin is drawn at "This PC" because there not enough space.
      - Of course, size, color, and number can be made configurable later.
      - This is work in progress. Not totally happy with the current state. 
        Graphically it's a bit in conflict with Tree Path Tracing. But it might 
        be usable as an alternative to Tree Path Tracing. Play with it...
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.111.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.111.lng is uploaded.
