Code: Select all

v21.70.0003 - 2021-04-16 16:02
    * Menu View | Paper Folders | Save: Now you'll see a short feedback in the 
      status bar so you know it's saved.
    * Paper Folders | Allow Zombies: Now this setting also affects the Hover Box 
      listing Paper Folder contents when hovering a Paper Folder tab icon (see 
      v21.40.0002 - 2020-12-27 13:52).
    ! Paper Folders | Allow Zombies: Toggling the setting did not refresh the 
      list if it happened to show a Paper Folder. Fixed. Now it reloads the 
      current Paper Folder with or without zombies.
    ! Paper Folders | Allow Zombies: If enabled a Paper Folder listing a drive 
      would show bogus file dates (Modified, Created) for that drive under 
      certain conditions. Fixed.
    ! Paper Folders | Allow Zombies: Empty lines in Paper Folder source files 
      were resolved to app path since 20210321. Fixed. Now they are just 
      skipped.
    ! SC paperfolder: The following line did not load the chicken into the list 
      if "Paper Folders | Explicit Save Only" was ticked:
        paperfolder("chicken.txt", , , "l");
      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.

    % Find List Item: Since v18.90.0119 - 2018-05-02 16:47 you got a command 
      "Find..." in the context menu of all smaller lists throughout the 
      interface. Added the keyboard shortcut (F4) to the menu item. Yep, it 
      existed all the time but nobody knew.
    % Configuration | Colors and Styles | Color Filters: Now when you use 
      filters like T:prop:#Label:Orange>,EE9D2F the Tree is automatically 
      redrawn with updated colors when you change a tag (Label, Tag, Comment, 
      Extra).

    + Image dimensions: Added WEBP (formats VP8, VP8L, VP8X) to the fast native 
      image dimensions detector. Of course, XY could always determine those 
      dimensions via shell extensions (preview handlers) but not that fast.

    ! Hi-Res: On 200%+ screen resolution icon overlays (e.g. link arrow, dropbox 
      overlays) were drawn much too large. Fixed.
    ! Hi-Res: On 200%+ screen resolution icons on thumbnails (Configuration |

      Fixed.

      drawn too small. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | Find and Filter | Filters & Type Ahead Find | Live Filter

      characters was not highlighted) in Large Icons view. Fixed.

        OS: Windows 8.1 Professional, 64-bit, Build 6002, .NET v4.8.03761
      Note that it only checks for .NET 4 and higher.

    * Menu View | Sort By | Random Order: Now when a tab is in random sort 
      order and go away from it and then come back, the previous order will be 
      restored. Before, a new random order was created in that situation.
      The random sort order will now also survive an explicit refresh or auto 
      refresh. So, to re-shuffle the items you have to call "View | Sort By | 
      Random Order" again.
    ! Hi-Res: On 325%+ screen resolution icon overlays (e.g. link arrow, dropbox 
      overlays) were drawn much too large. Fixed.

    + Custom Context Menu | Zip: Now the commands "Extract Here" and "Extract to 
      [folder]" also support RAR files. Of course, WinRAR has to be installed on 
      the system.
      XYplorer tries to find the needed helper file "UnRAR.exe" automatically in 
      the usual locations (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\WinRAR\UnRAR.exe). So if 
      you are reasonably lucky it should just work.
      If the preview fails you can tweak the location, for example:
        ZipPathUnRAR=C:\My Crazy Path To WinRAR\UnRAR.exe
    + SC zip_extract: Now it supports RAR files. Of course, WinRAR has to be 
      installed on the system.
      Existing files are overwritten without asking.
      Examples:
        zip_extract(); //extract currently selected RAR archive
        zip_extract("test.rar");
        zip_extract("test.rar", "out");
        zip_extract("test.rar", "out", "*.jpg");
        zip_extract("test.rar", "out", "läderlappen.jpg");
        zip_extract("test.rar", "out", "läderlappen.jpg|Musik-Putzmittel-Scan.jpg");

    + File | File Special | Extract Here: Now it also supports RAR files (WinRAR 
      has to be installed), and it will extract all selected files (not only the 
      focused one). Note that you can extract ZIP and RAR files in one go, and 
      they can be from different locations.
    + Custom Context Menu | Zip: Now the commands "Extract Here" and "Extract to 
      [folder]" will extract all selected files (not only the focused one). Note 
      that you can extract ZIP and RAR files in one go, and they can be from 
      different locations.
      If more than one file is selected the menu item caption "Extract to 
      [folder]" is changed to "Extract Each Archive to Separate Folder".
    + Edit | Paste Special | Paste Extracted: Now it also supports RAR files 
      (WinRAR has to be installed), and it will extract all selected files (not 
      only the focused one). Note that you can extract ZIP and RAR files in one 
      go, and they can be from different locations.

    + Custom Context Menu | Zip: Now the commands "Extract Here" and "Extract to 
      [folder]" are also available within a Paper Folder.
    + Drag and Drop Context Menu: Now "Extract Here" also supports RAR files 
      (WinRAR has to be installed), and it will extract all dragged files (not 
      only the focused one). Note that you can extract ZIP and RAR files in one 
      go, and they can be from different locations.
    + Now the new RAR extraction support extends to all extensions supported by 
      WinRAR. You can tweak the list of extensions at this INI-key (below you 
      see the factory default extensions) in case later WinRAR versions make 
      this necessary or possible:
        ZipExtWinRAR=.7z.ace.arj.bz2.cab.gz.iso.jar.lzh.rar.tar.uue.xz.z.
      Note that listing the contents (e.g. in Hover Box) is still limited to the 
      RAR extension. For some reason (bug?) UnRAR.exe (which is the only file 
      within the WinRAR package that seems to support content listing) does not 
      do the job for any of the other extensions.
    ! Paper Folders: The status bar message "paper folder saved" came also when 
      the Paper Folder was not really saved to disk (Explicit Save Only). Fixed. 
      Now it comes only on a real save.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.
