    ! Save Configuration: Would lose the internal "selected files" list 
      of each tab, and convert tab paths to portable paths (making them 
      unusable) if the Portable Tabs tweak was ON. Of course, this bug 
      went unnoticed when settings were saved on exit. Fixed.
    ! Portable Tabs: The PortableTabs tweak did not work correctly with 
      subfolders of app path. Fixed.
    ! List was not refreshed when dragging tree-to-tree on a special 
      path. Fixed.

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release (v9.10.0000, 05-may-2010).

Download: http://www.xyplorer.com/download.htm

Code: Select all

v9.10.0000 - 2010-05-05 12:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main changes since last release:
  +++ Queued File Operations 2.0. Improved interface and functionality.
      - Now you can remove selected jobs from the queue (temporarily or 
        permanently).
      - Now you can pause and restart the queue at any time.
      - Now you can start selected jobs out of queue order.
      - Animated feedback on the statusbar while background jobs are in 
        progress.
      - Option to show details of each job in the queue dialog.
      - Option to hide completed and skipped jobs from the queue dialog.
      - Now you can configure which types of file operations are 
        backgrounded for parallel or sequential (queued) processing, and 
        which are always run immediately in the foreground.
  +++ Background Bar. New optional UI element, a mini toolbar at the 
      right end of the Statusbar containing a single button which tells 
      you about the status of background jobs and lets you open the 
      Background Jobs dialog. 
  +++ Find By Type. Now you can narrow down the scope of your search to 
      only a specific type of files, e.g. image files or audio files. 
      Highly intuitive and extremely useful little feature.
  +++ Text Preview. One-click instant preview for more than 50 different 
      text file formats. And you can freely add extensions to the list 
      of supported formats.
  +++ Preview. Now you can easily add any number of new extensions to 
      all preview types (Text, Images, Fonts, Office, Web) right in the 
      configuration dialog.
  +++ Mouse Down Blow Up on Thumbnails. Now you can configure whether 
      left, right, or both mouse buttons trigger MDBU.      
  +++ Recently Opened Items. New command "Open..." lets 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 Pro edition, the Open dialog features an OpenWith dropdown 
      menu.
  +++ Find Files. Now you can search by the length of the file title 
      (that's the document name without the path).
  +++ Address Bar. Now you can launch DOS commands directly through the 
      XYplorer UI by prefixing "!" to the command, e.g. "!dir".
  +++ Icons. Support for DPI aware icon sizes on custom DPI settings.
  +++ Privacy and Discretion. New option "Don't save most-recently-used 
      lists" increases XYplorer's stealth level, together with "Don't 
      save history" and "Don't save tabs".
  +++ Bugs fixed. Particularly an "Access Denied" issue with certain 
      folders on Vista/Win7 is now history.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version (v9.10.0002, 07-may-2010).

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

Code: Select all

v9.10.0002 - 2010-05-07 11:59
    + Scripting commands enhanced:
      - setting, settingp
        New named argument "backgroundedfileops"
          value = OR-combined from the following values
           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!)
        Example:
          ::setting "backgroundedfileops", 31; //= all fileops
    + Menu Help: Added command "Various Information...". Pops up some 
      contextual data. Identical to SC info which now has become 
      obsolete.
    + List | White Space Context Menu: Added command "New Folder" to the 
      top, even with an icon. Just felt like doing something 
      conventional and newbie hugging this morning.
      Note that you will not see this command if "Configuration | 
      Advanced | Navigation commands in List context menu" is ON. A bit 
      experimental still... I know.
    * Right-Click Popup Menus: Now they are positioned 2 pixels to the 
      right/bottom from the mouse pointer, which allows you -- without 
      moving the mouse -- to click through to the background to make the 
      menu disappear or trigger some other action.
      This affects almost all such menus in the program. An exception is 
      the context menu of edit boxes which is controlled by Windows.
    * Background Jobs Dialog: Reduced the relative time resolution from 
      seconds to minutes. Less ticking, more peace of mind.
    ! Fixed a bug in changing the view of background tabs via their 
      context menu: their supposedly current view was falsely read from 
      the current foreground tab.
    ! Toolbar: Left-click dropdowns were not positioned below the button 
      but right at the mouse pointer on a non-overflowing toolbar. Fixed.
    ! Scripting: Scripts run through the address bar that resulted in 
      closing the app (e.g.: #192;) generated error 91. Fixed.
    ! XYcopy.exe: Stupid error message when you curiously tried to run 
      it standalone. Fixed. Now you are politely informed that this will 
      get you nowhere.
    ! DPI aware icons: "Shared" overlays were blown up under Vista/Win7. 
      Fixed.

v9.10.0004 - 2010-05-07 22:18
    ! File icons: Win7 (Vista, too?) changed the rules for retrieving 
      the correct display icon for files without extension and files 
      with unknown (=non-associated) extension. This version attempts to 
      comply to the new rules while keeping compatibility with XP and 
      previous OSs.
      There also was an inconcistency in display of these icons in some 
      parts of XY that surfaced only under Win7. Should be fixed now.
    ! Shell context menu for some folders wrong since v9.10.0002. Fixed.

    * The free space indicator on the leftmost section on the Statusbar 
      was fixed to unit GB. Now it is flexible and thus consistent with 
      any free space indicator on other parts of the Statusbar.
    ! File icons in various lists: Non-existing file items should get 
      no icon at all in most lists, but this stopped working in Win7 
      where they got the default icon instead. Fixed.
    ! List: Since v9.00.0018 - 2010-04-17 20:18 there was a bug with 
      drag selection and hot scrolling. Items that were scrolled out of 
      view toward the top of the list were unselected. Fixed.
      Also fixed a couple of related painting glitches and made the 
      whole thing smoother.

Code: Select all

v9.10.0010 - 2010-05-11 21:02
    + Tabs: The menu popped by right-clicking the tab white space now 
      contains the commands "Open New Tab" and "Close Tab".
    * List | Drag selection with hot scrolling (= scrolling a list by 
      moving a pushed mouse out of the list area): Now when you move the 
      offshore mouse vertically back towards the list no more scrolling 
      happens.
    * Factory Default UI: A couple of minor UI adjustments to look 
      better under Vista/Win7. The following is Vista/Win7 only:
      - Default font is now "Segoe UI" (before it was Tahoma).
      - Increased the default line height in Tree, List, Catalog by 2 
        pixels.
        Note that the row heights for Tree, List, and Catalog are all 
        individually configurable by Ctrl+Shift+Wheel.
      - Increased initial window width to account for wider borders.
    * Factory Default UI changes for all OS:
      - Background Bar now visible by default.
      - File Info Tips now enabled by default.
    ! Minor icon drawing glitches fixed.
    ! Raw View: Error on viewing short (shorter than view port) files 
      with Tail ON. Fixed.
    ! Text Preview: The 5 MB limit was not correctly implemented so that 
      larger files were still attempted to be previewed which could lead 
      to various errors. Fixed.

      FYI, in Hex View this is not possible for internal reasons.
    * Better placement of inline rename boxes when line height is 
      increased.
    * Win7: Default font size for main controls from 8.25 to 9.

      But it still needs a major overhaul in Mini Tree mode. The bizarre 
      Win7 file system is quite a challenge to straightforward file 
      management.
    * Any error messages now in new style with selectable/copyable text.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version (v9.10.0014, 14-may-2010).

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

Code: Select all

v9.10.0014 - 2010-05-14 16:05
  +++ Tree: Added new special folder <User> (the actual caption depends 
      on the current user name). Points to the current user's profile 
      folder (CSIDL_PROFILE).
  +++ Configuration | General: Added toggles to make the three top 
      special folder nodes in Tree optional:
        Show Desktop folder
        Show Documents folder
        Show User folder
      Defaults differ with OS:
      - On a fresh install you get this as default:
                                Vista/Win7    XP and earlier
        Show Desktop folder     -             +
        Show Documents folder   -             +
        Show User folder        +             -
      - On upgrading you get this as default:  
                                Vista/Win7    XP and earlier
        Show Desktop folder     +             +
        Show Documents folder   +             +
        Show User folder        +             -
      
      Notes:
      - If such a node is hidden then special paths like "Desktop" will 
        not work anymore in the special way but will be auto-resolved 
        to their real file system path.
      - A Maxi Tree will be completely rebuilt after changes in these 
        settings. So these are is rather set-and-forget kind of 
        settings, nothing you switch on and off all the time.
      - The Mini Tree does not really care about these settings but 
        shows and hides what you tell him to show and hide.
    + Menu View | Show Items: Added "Show Junctions" (also available in 
      Configuration | General). If unchecked then junctions are not 
      shown. The factory default is unchecked.
      This command has mainly been added to get rid of the plethora of 
      junctions in Win7.
    * After studying the bizarre Win7 file system a bit more I had to 
      change the way I handled the "Access Denied" issue on junctions 
      like "My Documents\My Music\", which only exist to ensure 
      compatibility to the old XP way which, for better or worse, has 
      been turned upside down in Win7.
      The old way let to a number of problems and inconsistencies (files 
      were shown but could not be accessed; icons in the address bar 
      were missing; and others).
      The new way still avoids the "Access Denied" error, but when you 
      want to go down to subfolders of the junction target, you will 
      actually be transported to the junction target in the tree. In 
      other words, Junctions like "My Documents\My Music\" will have no 
      subfolders in tree even if their targets have subfolders. They
      are rather treated like links.
      The simple fact is that these old XP folders are not part of Win7 
      anymore. XYplorer will not fight very hard against Win7 to make 
      them usable as if they still existed.
      Further Notes:
      - The above junction handling only concerns junctions on drive C:\ 
        and with the SYSTEM attribute set, on Vista or later.
      - Win7 Explorer does not show these junctions in his tree 
        at all, even if you set all possible show-all settings.
    + Scripting commands not documented in the help file:
        ::sysicons;    //show Icons in the System Image List
        ::sysicons 1;  //show Icon Overlays
        ::env;        //show Environment Variables

    * Action Log: Revised the layout. Now "No date" means "No date" in 
      Action Log and Toolbar dropdowns.
    * Tree: Toggling special folders Desktop, Documents, and User now 
      works on the fly without reset of the whole tree.
      Remember: Only affects Maxi Tree.
    * Configuration | General: Renamed

      - "Show Recycle Bin" to "Show Recycle Bin folder"
    ! Network: Shares on certain servers could be browsed in Mini Tree

    * Network: Experimentally you now can toggle (show/hide) the Network 
      special folder on the fly (without tree reset).
      And, experimentally as well, if the Network folder is hidden in 
      the tree, you still can browse network locations in the list.
    * Tree, List: Now junctions are shown with link overlays. This is 
      standard in Win7 Explorer and I think it's a good idea. Makes them 
      stand out even if the color filter is not enabled.
    ! Win7: Fixed an issue with recursive junctions, e.g. 
      C:\ProgramData\ApplicationData\.
    ! Win7: Fixed an issue with empty junctions, e.g. 
      C:\Users\AllUsers\.
    ! Tree: If special folder User was hidden, the special folder 
      Documents and its child nodes didn't work properly. Fixed.

    * List: Selected items were not recognizable enough when the list 
      was not focused. Changed the coloring a bit and added an 
      underline.
      Tip: You now can configure this color using a tweak:
        clrListSelNoFocusBack=...
      Note, however, that the expected format is a 24-bit decimal color 
      value, not RRGGBB.
    ! Configuration | General | Show hidden files and folders: Changing 
      this setting did reset the tree although this was not necessary. 
      Fixed.
    ! BTW, more attempts to fix error 10 (just as in every version since 
      more than a week).
