    + Type Stats and Filter: Now the last unfiltered stats are 
      remembered for a filtered list, so you can easily switch between 
      different filters without using "Show All" in between. Slick!
      Note: The stats are only stored for the last filtered list 
      (filtered by TSF), so after using TSF on any other filtered list, 
      you won't get the stored stats for this filtered list anymore.
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.

    * Visual Filters: Now, when you pass the *current* path through the 
      AB then any Visual Filter is removed, irrespective of the setting 
      of "Persist Visual Filters across Folders". Before, you could 
      remove a Visual Filter this way only if "Persist Visual Filters 
      across Folders" was off.
    ! Rename Special: Date shifting did not work anymore since about 6 
      months ago. Fixed. Now you can apply patterns like this one again 
      to your holiday pics:
        Chicago-<datec -8h yyyymmdd_DDD_hh-nn-ss>
      (Will rename the file to a date 8 hours before its created date.)
    ! Admin Settings: The Catalogs key in Admin.ini did not work:

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v12.30.0102 - 2013-04-13 21:27
    + DEVELOPERS: Experimentally added a scripting command CopyData that 
      internally uses WM_COPYDATA to send data to another window.
      Name: CopyData
      Action: Send data to another window.
      Syntax: copydata hwnd, data, flags
        hwnd:   Handle of the target window.
        data:   Text data to send.
        flags:
            0: Nothing special, simply send the text data.
            1: Text data is an XYplorer script to be executed by 
               the receiving window (which in this case, of course, has 
               to be XYplorer.exe).
      Examples:
      - Run a small script in another XYplorer (197078):
        copydata 197078, "::echo 'hi';", 1;
      - Return the contents of variable <curitem> from another XYplorer 
        (197078) to this window (1573124), using copydata first in this 
        XYplorer process and then again in the other XYplorer process 
        for the return:
        copydata 197078, '::copydata 1573124, <curitem>;', 1;
      Notes:
      - The command only returns when the receiving window has fully 
        processed the data. For example if you send a script the 
        command will return only after the script has terminated.
      - If called with flags 0 then
          cds.dwData == 4194304 (0x00400000)            
      - If called with flags 1 then
          cds.dwData == 4194305 (0x00400001)
    + New variable <hwnd> resolves to the handle of the main application 
      window. Knowing this handle can be useful when debugging the new 
      CopyData() command.
    + New temporary variable <pfaitem>, resolves to the item (full path) 
      the opening application or script in a PFA (Portable File 
      Association) is associated with. In such a script called via PFA 
      <pfaitem> can be used. After the PFA is processed the variable is 
      reset to nothing.
    ! Find Files by Contents would error out on files that only had a 
      UTF-8 BOM (3 bytes) but no further contents. 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.

Code: Select all

v12.30.0103 - 2013-04-14 18:39
    + DEVELOPERS: New variable <get copieddata [token]> returns the last 
      data copied to this window via WM_COPYDATA. The returned data 
      depends on the value of the "token" argument:
        0: hWndSender|dwData|Data
        1: hWndSender
        2: dwData
        3: Data
      For example, this 2-line script will retrieve the value of 
      <curitem> in another instance of XYplorer (721424), and then 
      display it in a message box in this XYplorer (<hwnd>):
        copydata 721424, "::copydata <hwnd>, " . '<curitem>' . ";", 1;
          echo <get copieddata 3>;
      This cool addition completes the recent advances in inter-process 
      communication.
    ! Recent temporary variable <pfaitem> did not work under all 
      circumstances. Fixed.    
    + SC download enhanced: Added option to raise the downloaded file 
      size limit from the default 100 MB to "unlimited" (which currently 
      is technically limited to 2GB - 1, but this might be raised in a 
      future version).
        Syntax: download sourceurl, [targetfile], [options]
          options:
            u = unlimited downloaded file size

v12.30.0104 - 2013-04-15 10:24
    + SC CopyData enhanced: Added a mode (previously "flags") to 
      immediately return the text, with variables resolved, to the sender.
      Syntax: copydata hwnd, data, mode
        mode:
            2: Resolve variables in data and return to sender immediately.
               Variables are XYplorer native and environment variables.
      Example:
        - Determine <curitem> in another XYplorer instance (hWnd 197078):
          copydata 197078, '<curitem>', 2; echo <get copieddata 3>;
        Note that the single quotes in the example are essential else 
        <curitem> would be resolved in *this* instance of XYplorer 
        before being sent to the other instance.
    > Note for DEVELOPERS:
      The mode parameter in SC CopyData simply select different dwData
      - If called with mode 0 then
          cds.dwData == 4194304 (0x00400000)
          = Do nothing special.
      - If called with mode 1 then
          cds.dwData == 4194305 (0x00400001)
          = Data is XYplorer script; execute this script immediately.
      - If called with mode 2 then
          cds.dwData == 4194306 (0x00400002)
          = Resolve variables in data and return to sender immediately.
      So any application can use these dwData values to trigger a 
      specific reaction in XYplorer when it receives data via 
      WM_COPYDATA.
    ! DUBs: Since 20120830 dropping would not work anymore with buttons 
      pointing to pseudo-executables like *.vbs. Fixed. Now you can drop 
      on these buttons again. The following extensions are droppable:
        .exe .bat .cmd .js .jse .vbe .vbs .wsf .wsh .xys .zip .zipx .gz 
        .gzip .tar .cab .arj .rar .7z
      And you can extend the list of droppable extensions by editing 
      the tweak DropTargetCustomExtensions like this:
        DropTargetCustomExtensions=bim.bam.bum
    ! User Buttons and Scripts: Some special icon resp. button keys 
      (dp1, dp2, dp12) did not generate the correct icons in all 
      contexts. Fixed.

    * SC download: Now the downloaded data is not limited anymore to 
      2GB. Files are now streamed onto disk (you can see them growing in 
      the file list). And much less memory is used for it.
      The recent option "u" (unlimited downloaded file size) has been 
      removed and is obsolete now. Forget it.
      Note that for SC readurl, where downloaded data are written into a 
      string, the 100 MB limit persists.
    % SC download: Now much faster.
