    + XYcopy (Background Processing): Now also Move operations within 
      the same volume are processed in the background if Background 
      Processing is enabled. However, contrary to Copy and cross-volume 
      Move, intra-volume Move operations are never queued regardless of 
      the setting of "Queue file operations", because they are usually 
      fast and you rather expect immediate action.    
      Why are they now backgrounded?
      - There is no good reason not to background them.
      - It might be confusing to some users that cross-volumes moves are 
        treated differently from intra-volume moves.
      - Some virus-scanners seem to scan intra-volume moves (thus making 
        them slow) although no bytes are moved on an intra-volume move.
    * XYcopy.exe: New app icon now with alpha channels.
    ! List: Would not draw unselected large icons of a size other than 
      32 x 32 under Vista/Win7. Fixed.

    * Renamed Status Log to Status View.
    + Status View: Now the view is auto-updated every second, so the 
      Status View has become pretty alive. It also became non-modal and 
      appears in the taskbar and can be minimized. And it can be shown 
      even if the list is still empty (if no background file operations 
      have yet been initiated).
      If you can turn off the auto-update you still can update the list 
      by pressing F5.
    * Status View: Replaced "Triggered" by "Started".
    ! List: Would not draw unselected large icons of a size other than 
      32 x 32 under Vista/Win7. Fix #2.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version (v9.00.0021, 20-apr-2010).

BETA versions are only available for registered users. Find the download link at the bottom of the License Lounge.

Code: Select all

v9.00.0021 - 2010-04-20 13:37
    + New variable <get xycopy_pending>. Returns the number of file 
      operations to be handled in the background (by XYcopy) that are 
      not yet completed.
      As always, SC getinfo supports the same argument:
        echo getinfo("xycopy_pending");
    + Added tweak to control which types of file operations are 
      backgrounded if Background Processing is enabled.
      The new key BackgroundedFileOps is a binary flag, an OR-ing (which 
      is here equivalent to adding the desired values) of the following 
      values:
         1 [ ] Backup (currently unused; has yet to be coded)
         2 [x] Copy
         4 [x] Cross-volume move
         8 [x] Intra-volume move  (always parallel = not queued!)
        16 [ ] Delete             (always parallel = not queued!)
      The default value is 14 (2+4+8), so from now on Delete 
      operations are by factory default not backgrounded:
        BackgroundedFileOps=14
      Later Backup will be added to the default operations.
      Note that the tooltip of "Enable Background Processing" in 
      Configuration | File Operations tells you about the current 
      setting.
    + Scripting commands enhanced:
      - setting, settingp
        New named argument "backgroundfileops"
          0 = Disable background processing of file operations
          1 = Enable background processing of file operations
        Example:
          ::setting "backgroundfileops", 1;
    + Status View: The position and size of the window is now stored 
      between calls and sessions.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version (v9.00.0202, 23-apr-2010).

BETA versions are only available for registered users. Find the download link at the bottom of the License Lounge.

Code: Select all

v9.00.0202 - 2010-04-23 12:05
  +++ Menu File: Added command "Open...". Here you can enter, paste, or 
      select an item (file, folder, drive) to open, without the need to 
      go there first. Recently opened items are stored in a MRU list 
      that is saved between sessions.
      In the input dialog you can choose between "Open" which will open 
      the item using the default application (taking XY's portable 
      associations into account), and "Open with..." (Ctrl+Enter) which 
      will pop the Portable Openwith Menu (POM) for the item you have 
      entered.
      Default keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+O. Now you know what I saved this 
      combo for... :)

      Notes
      ~~~~~
      - Special paths are supported, e.g. "Desktop/stuff.txt".
      - Portable/relative paths are supported.
      - Environment variables are supported.
      - The MRU list holds a maximum of 64 items.
      - The POM will not show any scripts but just real applications.
      - The POM will pop at the mouse cursor.
      
    * Input dialogs with dropdown and a third button besides OK and 
      Cancel (e.g. Batch Rename..., Open...): Now, when the dropdown is 
      dropped pressing Enter does not OK the dialog at the same time but 
      just close the dropdown.
    + Find Files: Now you can search by the length of the file title 
      (that's the document name without the path). 
      Simply prefix "lent:" to the search term in the Name field.
      Examples:
      - Find all items whose title is exactly 10 characters long:
        lent:10
      - Find all items whose title is 3 characters long or shorter:
        lent: <= 3
      - Find all items with a long file name (> 12 characters):
        lent: > 12
    + Catalog | Properties: Now the Location field has a Browse button 
      accompanying it.
    * Renamed "View Status..." to "Background Jobs...".
    * Menu Edit | Compare: Renamed "Compare Current File With File On 
      Clipboard" to "Compare Current File with File in Clipboard" 
      because "in" seems to be the more usual choice.
    * Configuration | Startup & Exit. From now "Allow multiple 
      instances" is ON by factory default. Reason: It seems that the 
      majority of users expect this behavior, and WE has it as well.
    ! Drop messages from Outlook: There was no check for overlong 
      filenames, which could potentially confuse the Shell and lead to 
      nonsense overwrite prompts. Fixed: Now dropped message filenames 
      are cropped if necessary to stay below a length of 260 chars 
      (which of course depends on the target path: the shorter the 
      target path, the longer can be your message filenames).
    ! Background Jobs: Preselected item was not scrolled into view 
      since recently. Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version (v9.00.0203, 24-apr-2010).

BETA versions are only available for registered users. Find the download link at the bottom of the License Lounge.

Code: Select all

v9.00.0203 - 2010-04-24 11:48
    + Address Bar (and all other location ports): Now you can launch DOS 
      commands directly through the XYplorer UI by prefixing "!" to the 
      location term. The default startpath for the DOS commands is the 
      current List folder. Use a double "!" to keep the DOS box visible.
      Examples:
        !dir    = directory listing of current list folder
                  DOS box will vanish immediately, not very useful here
        !!dir   = directory listing of current list folder
                  DOS box stays visible
        !!      = simply open DOS box without any action
    + Menu Tools | List Management: Added command "Recently Opened 
      Items". Here you can edit the MRU list of the Open dialog.
      (Already in v9.00.0202 but forgot to mention.)
    * Menu File | Open...: Now the POM is opened "upon" the dialog. That 
      way you see what is about to be opened, and you can cancel the POM 
      while the Open dialog keeps open.
      The POM is now always opened directly below the "Open with..." 
      button, independently of the mouse position.
      To avoid a stupid beep the POM now opens on key UP (instead of 
      DOWN) when opened by Ctrl+Enter.
    * Menu File | Open...:
      - The default item after opening the Open dialog now depends on 
        the current focus and selections in the app. If List, Tree, 
        Catalog, or Address Bar are focused its current item will be 
        used if it is selected. Otherwise the dialog opens preset to the 
        last opened item.
      - The POM will not show any applications that are defined with XY 
        variables (<curitem> etc.) in the arguments. Such arguments are 
        resolved with reference to the current list state, and the Open 
        command should be independent of the list.
      - Note that in the Home Edition, the "Open with..." button is not 
        available (POM is not featured in the Home Edition).
    + Configuration | Startup & Exit: Added option "Don't save most-
      recently-used lists". Check to forget the MRU lists of Address 
      Bar, Visual Filter, Selection Filter, Rename Special, and Open.
      Note that this setting already existed as a tweak (ForgetMRU).

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version (v9.00.0204, 26-apr-2010).

BETA versions are only available for registered users. Find the download link at the bottom of the License Lounge.

Code: Select all

v9.00.0204 - 2010-04-26 12:00
    + Menu Window: Added toggle "Show Background Bar" to show the 
      Background Bar (see next paragraph). Factory default is hidden.
    + Added a new GUI element, the "Background Bar", a mini toolbar at 
      the right end of the Statusbar containing a single button which 
      tells you about the status of background jobs (if any) by showing 
      an animated icon. If the animation in active the button's tooltip 
      tells you how many jobs are not yet completed (either in progress 
      or pending).
      Clicking the button will open the Background Jobs window. The 
      button also has a right-click menu with some handy commands.
    + Portable Openwith Menu (POM): Now also the OS-associated app for 
      opening *folders* is listed in the POM when the POM is opened on a 
      folder. So you now have a quick (no-shell) way to determine which 
      is your default file manager, and use it on a drive or folder. The 
      item is not bold in the menu because the default opener of folders 
      within XYplorer is hardcoded to be XYplorer itself, of course.
    * Menu File | Open...: Changed text "Enter item to open." to "Enter 
      file to open." to make clear that this is predominantly about 
      files (documents). Folders work, executables work, but the 
      interface is mainly meant to quickly open a recently opened 
      document again.
    * Menu Tools | List Management: Renamed command "Recently Opened 
      Items" to "Recently Opened Files".
    * Recently Opened Files MRU: Now single files (not folders) opened 
      thru the List by Enter/Dbl-Click or via the POM are automatically 
      added to the MRU (and thus made available in the new Open dialog.
      Files opened via scripts, or UDC, or Catalog, or shell context 
      menu, or within a group of files (i.e. non-single), or other means 
      are not auto-added.
    - Undid the following change from v8.80.0314 - 2010-02-19 14:48:
      * List: In "List" view clicking an item in a cropped column does not 
        scroll that column into view anymore.
      Reason: This was XP behavior but Vista/W7 do auto-scroll here so 
      user expectation will move towards scrolling.
      There's a new tweak if you still want the old XP behavior:      
        ListNoAutoHoriScroll=1
    ! Find Files: Numeric name filter types "len" and "lent" were 
      internally treated as string parts when used without comparison 
      operator and without quotes.
      E.g. 'lent:10' would also match length 107 because "*10*" matches 
      "107". You had to do 'lent:"10"' to work around this. This is 
      fixed now:
      - Find all items whose title is exactly 10 characters long. Both 
        work identically:
        lent:10
        lent:"10"
      - Find all items whose title length contains "10":
        lent:*10*
    ! Address Bar: DOS commands (!...) were not added to MRU. Fixed.
    ! Background Jobs: Loading the window again while previous instance 
      of it was still visible lead to graphical surprises. Fixed. Now 
      the previous window is foregrounded.
    ! Toolbar: Could crash when you used all available buttons plus some 
      separators. Fixed.
    * Toolbar: Separators 2 pixels narrower and a bit lighter.
    * Action Log: Now 2 lines per entry.

Re: Here's the new BETA

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version (v9.00.0205, 27-apr-2010).

BETA versions are only available for registered users. Find the download link at the bottom of the License Lounge.

Code: Select all

v9.00.0205 - 2010-04-27 14:19
    * Configuration | Startup & Exit | Don't save tabs: Now with this 
      setting enabled also the last paths of each pane are forgotten and 
      on next start will be initialized to MyComputer.
      If you want to forget the tabs but keep the last paths of each 
      pane use this new tweak:
        KeepLastPaths=1
    * Menu File | Open...: Not preset to the currently selected item 
      anymore but always to the last opened item.
    * Info Panel: New default style making away with the old-school 3D-
      lines. Those of you who don't like it got a tweak:
        TabIPVisualStyle=...
          new style = 0
          old style = 1
    * Info Panel Splitter: Now a bit darker than before, giving a 
      very subtle hint about its existence.
    * GUI: Now the checkboxes use in some lists are actually drawn from 
      the current visual theme. Before they had been hardcoded to XP 
      style.
      This has no effect on "Windows Classic Design".
    * Action Log, Background Jobs: Now copying the list contents will 
      generate one line per item. The inner-item line feeds are replaced 
      by TABs.
    * Configuration | File Operations: Added button "Apply to..." where 
      you can configure which file operations are backgrounded. This has 
      previously been a tweak (BackgroundedFileOps).
    * Background Processing: I now think that the factory default for 
      backgrounded file operations should NOT include intra-volume 
      moves. Backup will soon be added so this should already be 
      included. So the new default is:
         1 [x] Backup (currently unused; has yet to be coded)
         2 [x] Copy
         4 [x] Cross-volume move
         8 [ ] Intra-volume move  (always parallel = not queued!)
        16 [ ] Delete             (always parallel = not queued!)
      The default value is 7 (1+2+4):
        BackgroundedFileOps=7
      This will not affect your configuration when you upgrade.
    * DOS command syntax: Reversed the prefixes. Now the DOS box will 
      stay alive when you use a single "!", and it will auto-vanish when 
      you use a double "!!".
      Examples:
        !       = simply open DOS box without any action
        !dir    = directory listing of current list folder
                  DOS box stays visible
        !!dir   = directory listing of current list folder
                  DOS box will vanish immediately, not very useful here
    + Background Jobs: New checkbox "Hide completed" allows you to show 
      only pending jobs in the list.
    * Background Bar: Tooltips now are "transparent", i.e. they do not 
      vanish by mouse touch. This is useful when XY is maximized and 
      (depending on the Windows version) tooltips are positioned right 
      "under" the mouse because no space below the mouse.
    * Action Log: Now when "Date format in action labels" is set to "No 
      date" this setting is ignored in the Action Log window (but 
      respected in related Toolbar button tooltips and dropdowns). 
      Otherwise the 2-line layout breaks.
    ! Tree: DnDing folders into other folders in Special Folders didn't 
      refresh the tree properly to reflect nested folders. Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version (v9.00.0206, 28-apr-2010).

BETA versions are only available for registered users. Find the download link at the bottom of the License Lounge.

Code: Select all

v9.00.0206 - 2010-04-28 15:46
    + Configuration | Thumbnails | Mouse Down Blow Up: Now you can 
      configure which mouse button triggers MDBU.
      - On left mouse down (popup stays up until button is released)
      - On right mouse down (popup stays up until clicked, or ESC)
      The new factory default is: On left mouse down.
    * Menu File | Preview: Simpler logics, analog to Edit | Find Files.
        IF preview tab is visible
          close any preview
          close Info Panel
        ELSE
          show preview tab
          if Info Panel is hidden
            show Info Panel
          if a file is selected
            start preview                    
    + Background Jobs: Now there's a "Details..." item in each job's 
      context menu, where you can view the list of the job's source 
      files.
      Also, if a job has only one source item, its name is shown right 
      in the list instead of just "1 item".
    + Background Jobs: Now you can skip pending jobs via the job's 
      context menu ("Skip Job"). The job will not be started as long as 
      it is skipped.
      You can unskip a job at any point in time.
      - If jobs are in progress while you unskip a job then it will be 
        started whenever it turn comes.
      - If all jobs are completed and only skipped jobs are left in the 
        list then you are prompted whether to start the job now. On OK 
        the job is immediately started. On Cancel the job will be 
        started whenever you initiate the next background job; this is 
        because always the whole job list is scanned for jobs that need 
        to be completed, and the unskipped job will be started before 
        the job you just initiated because it comes earlier in the list.
    * Background Jobs: Slightly changed the wording so that all completed 
      jobs have "Completed" as the first word (regardless of their 
      success), and any info about Cancelling at the end of the line.
      Also now there is only one icon for cancelled jobs, be they fully 
      or partially cancelled, or failed. The return data of the shell 
      function just don't give that detail of information reliably.
    + Background Jobs: Now you can completely pause the processing using 
      the new checkbox "Pause processing". Jobs that are already in 
      progress are not affected by pausing.
      On unpause the processing starts with the next non-completed job.
      The setting is also available in the context menu of the 
      Background Bar.
      Pausing affects all pending jobs, be they queued or parallel.
      When you close XYplorer all pending jobs are forgotten.
    * Background Processing: Now the "File operation progress dialog 
      modeless" setting (as is in the moment a job is initiated by the 
      user) is respected by XYcopy (1.00.0024).
      Under XP enabling this setting allows you to have the progress 
      dialog of background processes shown in the taskbar. Under Vista/7 
      it is shown in the taskbar always regardless of the setting.
    ! Configuration | File Operations | File operation progress dialog 
      modeless: Setting was not saved after OKing Configuration. Fixed.
    ! Tree: When the tree was locked, folders created from within 
      external applications were not shown in XYplorer's locked tree 
      until a refresh was initiated. Fixed.

      Notes
      - The order of precedence of the various previews is:
          Text > Html > Font > Icon > Image > Media
        So, to preview HTML using the Browser (embedded IE), simply go 
        to Configuration | Previewed Formats and uncheck HTML under 
        "Text" and check it under "Web & Office".
      - For huge text files only the first 5 MB are shown for 
        performance reasons.
    + Configuration | Previewed Formats: Now you can add any number of 
      additional file types as comma-separated extension lists.
      E.g. to add "*.zig" and "*.zag" files to the previewed text files, 
      add "zig, zag" (w/out quotes; spaces optional) into the editbox 
      below the "Text" list.
      This replaces tweaks that previously had to be used to add custom 
      formats to the preview.
    * Info Panel: Added shadow effect to the tab headers.
    * Background Jobs: Improved and fixed a thousand little things. 
      Among others:
      - Pause overlays in the BJ listing
      - Removed Auto-update checkbox (it's now hardcoded to ON)
      - Hide completed now also hides skipped
    + Background Jobs | Pause queue: Pausing now only affects *queued* 
      pending and new jobs. If "Queue file operations" is off then new 
      background jobs will be started immediately regardless of the 
      state of "Pause queue".
      
      Further remarks on Pausing the queue
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      - While the queue is paused you can still add new jobs to the 
        queue. Once the queue is to your liking you can release the 
        Pause and go have a coffee while your machine is working the 
        queue.
      - In a paused queue with a couple of pending jobs you can use the 
        following trick to manipulate the order of jobs: Choose the next 
        job you want to start, and check "Skip Job" from its context 
        menu. Then uncheck "Skip Job" and you are prompted whether to 
        start the job now. OK the prompt and only this job will be 
        executed.
    * Background Jobs | Details...: Now position and size are remembered 
      between calls and sessions.
    * Background Jobs: "Auto-update" and "Hide completed" are now 
      remembered between calls and sessions.
    * Background Jobs: More feedback on the statusbar when adding jobs 
      and when all jobs are completed. This might later be moved to a 
      self-destructing thing (SDT).
    * Unified the context menu of TB "Queue" and BB. And fixed a couple 
      of other little things.
    ! Dropping images from Firefox 3.* was supported by the List but not 
      by the Tree. Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version (v9.00.0210, 02-may-2010).

BETA versions are only available for registered users. Find the download link at the bottom of the License Lounge.

Code: Select all

v9.00.0210 - 2010-05-02 16:08
  +++ Find By Type: Added a little dropdown to the Find Files tab under 
      Name & Location, where you can select a general file type to 
      narrow down the search results to only that type of files.
      The available file types exactly correspond to the lists under 
      Configuration | Previewed Formats, and are listed on the Find 
      Files under the following captions:
        - All types (= no type filtering at all)
        - Text files
        - Web/Office files
        - Font files
        - Image files
        - Media files
      So, to make that clear: "Type" here is not the same as the "Type" 
      column in Details view.

      Notes
      - Any extensions excluded from Preview in Configuration | 
        Previewed Formats are nevertheless used by the find files type 
        filter.
      - Note that the types partly overlap, e.g. *.txt is in "Text 
        files" and in "Web/Office files".
      - Apart from "All types" all type filters will return only files, 
        not directories.
      - Tip: To quickly list e.g. all Images simply select type "Image 
        files" and leave the Name field empty.
      - You should really like this if you often work within certain 
        file types because it dramatically increases the quality of your 
        search results, resp. reduces the necessary effort to define a 
        good search definition.
     
      Future
      - It is planned to make all Named Visual Filters available as 
        User-Defined Type Filters!
      - Type filters might be added to the Quick Search syntax.
    
    + Tweak to use DPI aware icon sizes on custom DPI settings. For 
      example if you set DPI to 120 (125%) then the small icon size will 
      be 22x22 under V/7 instead of the standard 16x16. DPI aware icon 
      sizes are applied to Tree, List, and Catalog.
      To enable it do this: 
        UseDPIAwareIconSizes=1
      The tweak is only applied if you have XP or higher. But only for 
      Vista or higher it can be recommended since the XP graphics engine 
      lacks in this respect.
      Under the standard setting DPI=96 the tweak has no effect.
    + Background Jobs: Added "Start Job Now" command to the context menu 
      of each paused pending job -- a single click to start a particular 
      job from a pending queue.
      The command is also available on the context menu of skipped jobs, 
      so if you change your mind and want to do a skipped job you don't 
      need to unskip it first. Simply click "Start Job Now".
      As a consequence the "Start the unskipped job now?" prompt after 
      unskipping has been removed.
    * List: Increased the space between icon and name by one pixel. 
      Looks better.
    * Background Jobs: Now when quitting XYplorer and there are pending 
      jobs in the background queue you are prompted whether you really 
      want to exit and purge the jobs.
      The queue is set to paused state while the prompt is up (so you 
      have a fair change to purge the jobs by exiting the app).
    * Toolbar | Visual Filter: Displayed MRU enlarged to 16 items (was 
      10).
    ! Tree: The context menu for shares did not feature "Create New 
      Subfolder Here" and "Copy Path". Fixed.
    ! Error "Access Denied" when browsing certain junctions (e.g. "My 
      Documents\My Music\") under Vista/Win7. Fixed.
      Background: Vista/Win7 have hidden junctions, which have the same 
      names as folder names had in XP. In file managers, these junctions 
      are shown as hidden shortcuts, with File Folder properties, used, 
      in part, to redirect XP program installations that rely on the old 
      XP folder names and XP locations. If you try to browse them, 
      you'll get an "Access Denied" error.

    * Type Filter: New order in the dropdown:
        - All types (= no type filtering at all)
        - Text files
        - Image files
        - Media files
        - Font files
        - Web files
        - Office files
        - Executable files
    * Type Web files and Text files: Added htaccess, cfg, and inc.
    * Type Filter dropdown: Now supports simple type-ahead find, also in 
      collapsed state. Simply type "t" to select "Text files", "a" to 
      select "All files", etc.
    * Tweak UseDPIAwareIconSizes is now enabled by factory default.
    ! Find Files: Now correctly displays "Access Denied" when it 
      should. Before it just showed an empty (and potentially 
      misleading!) search results listing with no further information.
    ! Error "Access Denied". Fix #3. Now it also works on junctions 
      without a HIDDEN attribute.
    ! Error "Access Denied". Fix #4. Now works everywhere, also with 
      Find Files and other parts that were struck by the "Access Denied" 
      error under Vista/Win7.

    * Type Filter: Added more filters and more extensions. All pretty 
      intuitive apart from maybe one thing: "Media files" are simply a 
      combination of "Audio files" and "Video files".
      While Audio, Video, Vector, Archive, and Executable are not among 
      resp. matching the "Previewed Formats", you can still add your own 
      extensions to them (as comma-separated lists) using these tweaks:
        AudioPreviewCustomExtensions=bim,bam,bum
        VideoPreviewCustomExtensions=
        VectorPreviewCustomExtensions=
        ArchivePreviewCustomExtensions=
        ExePreviewCustomExtensions=
    * Type Filter: With the focus in the Type Filter edit box press F1 
      to see a list of the file types that pertain to the current type 
      filter. The list also has information about the OS-associated 
      applications.
    * Toolbar: Will not capture the mouse anymore (hover effect) when 
      the main window is in the background. This avoids possible issues 
      where a mouse click apparently went "through" a foreground window 
      directly to a toolbar button.
