    * Tweaks ListDetailsColumnsSpacing and 
      ListDetailsColumnsSpacingLeft: Now they are not taken to be hard 
      pixels but a factor n that will be realized relative to the font 
      width in the list (n * width(" ") / 3). In other words: Now, when 
      the font gets bigger, the padding gets bigger as well, so the 
      proportions stay in perfect harmoxy, uh harmony.
    ! Floating Preview and Quick File View: Dialog position was not 
      correctly retained when the taskbar was placed at the left or at 
      the top of the screen. Fix #2.
      Note: Now you can move the taskbar while XY is running and the 
      placement will still be alright.

    + Font Sizing: Now you can control the size of the "Buttons and 
      Labels" font using Ctrl+Wheel over the Status Bar. This is not 
      only very practical but also gives you some intermediate 
      fractional sizes that the standard font dialog does not offer.
    * MLS: Adjusted a couple of UI elements for Japanese in wider fonts.
    ! SC report: Since milliseconds support was added the command 
      returned empty values for {Created}, {Modified}, {Accessed}. 
      Fixed.
    * Updated the help file.

v12.50.0031 - 2013-07-07 13:48
    + Menu File | Metadata: Now the window shares its size and position 
      with the Quick File View, and it can be non-modal. If non-modal 
      you can switch (using menu, KS, or TB) between Metadata View and 
      Quick File View while the non-modal window is open!
      It also shares the setting with QFV. Tick this to have the window 
      non-modal: Configuration | Preview | Quick file view: | Modeless 
      dialog (In a future version this setting might be removed and 
      internally hardcoded to true.)
    * Tweak to enable this: When you use the keyboard to open Floating 
      Preview, Quick File View, Metadata View, or Zip View, the focus 
      will stay in the main form so you can seamlessly continue working 
      with the keyboard in the main form.
        OpenViewsUnfocused=1
      NB: Technically the focus will not stay but immediately auto-move 
      back to the main form after the child window is opened.
    * Kind of complementing the above tweak pressing ESC in the main 
      form will now close any of the above mentioned Views.
    + Menu File | File Special | Display Hash Values: Added CRC-32.
    ! List | Item Context Menu | Junction | Delete Junction: Did not 
      work on special paths (Desktop, User, etc.). Fixed.
    ! SC zip_extract: When called on a non-zip file it would create a 
      target folder before noting that there is nothing it can extract. 
      Fixed. No folder is created now.

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

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

Code: Select all

v12.60.0000 - 2013-07-08 12:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Zip Support. Now XYplorer can add to and extract from Zip 
      archives. Zip related commands have been added all over the place, 
      including interesting ones like "Drop into Zip", "Paste Into Zip", 
      "Paste Extracted", "Paste Zipped", and "Zip Here".
  +++ Zip View. A non-modal Zip preview allowing for fast and easy 
      consecutive browsing of Zip archives.
  +++ Quick File View. Now the window can be non-modal so you can leave 
      it open side by side with the main window for smooth one-click 
      previews of any listed file.
  +++ Adjustable Font Size. Now you can control the font size of all 
      interface elements (buttons, checkboxes, labels etc).
  +++ Accessible Tooltips. Now the File Info Tips and other tooltips are 
      displayed in the same font and font size as their parent controls, 
      i.e. you can have them as big or as small, and ultimately as 
      readable, as the rest of the text.
  +++ Display Hash Values. Now the most common hash values for the 
      current file (CRC-32, MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, SHA-512) can be 
      displayed.
  +++ Japanese. Added support for Japanese.

v12.60.0001 - 2013-07-10 14:24
    + Custom Context Menu | Zip: Added command "Add to {parent}.zip". 
      This is actually the default with all major archivers (WinZip, 
      WinRAR, 7zip), at least when more than one file is selected for 
      archiving. Now you have both auto-named targets offered side by 
      side.
    ! Dropping images from Chrome didn't always work. Fixed.
    ! File Info Tips: Font properties Bold and Italic were not yet 
      mirrored in the tooltips. Fixed.
    ! File Info Tips: The tips for clipped list items did not yet mirror 
      the list font. 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.

v12.60.0002 - 2013-07-11 20:31
    + SC report enhanced: Now "Extended Properties" (the complete set of 
      available metadata of file) are fully supported using the new 
      field {prop:[property]}. Just like elsewhere in the app "prop:" 
      supports numeric as well as literal property identifiers.
      For example, the following line double-reports the image 
      dimensions for image files in the current list, once referenced 
      numerically ("#26") (NOTE: this number works in XP only!), once 
      literally ("dimensions"):
        text report("{name} ({prop:#26}) ({prop:dimensions})<crlf>");
      Note that MS made a total mess here so that each Windows version 
      has a completely reshuffled set of numbers and keywords. But there 
      is help: The line numbers in "Configuration | File Info Tips | 
      Show custom file info tips" give you the actual values of all 
      available extended properties in your current Windows version.
      For all I know, literal property identifiers are not documented at 
      all by MS, so you can only guess, trial, and error.
      Remark: This enhancement means nothing less than ultimate power to 
      the report command. A reporter's wet dream come true.

v12.60.0004 - 2013-07-12 19:30
    + List | Details View: Experimentally you can now toggle-select 
      items when clicking into the Line Numbers column (#). Works very 
      well as an on-the-fly substitute for Sticky Selection. There is 
      one disadvantage though: You cannot lasso-select from the Line 
      Numbers column anymore.
    + Tweak to customize the line spacing in XP and earlier. Note that 
      in Vista and later the lines (in any application) are by default 2 
      pixels higher than in XP. Now you can have the same more "airy" 
      look in XP and earlier as well:
        ListsLineSpacing=2
      This replaces the old and now obsolete WinVistaExtraLineSpacing 
      tweak which was just used under Vista and later:
        WinVistaExtraLineSpacing=2
    * The factory default XP (and earlier) look is now back to the more 
      narrow style you might remember from that application called 
      Windows Explorer. Use the above tweak (ListLineHeightExtra) to 
      add all the air you need.
    * The extra line spacing is now also applied to the folder tree, the 
      file list, the catalog, and all dropdown lists, irrespective of 
      the Windows version.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v12.60.0005 - 2013-07-14 20:20
    + Configuration | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Mouse: Added option "Line 
      number selection". Tick it to enable Line Number Selection (click 
      on line number toggles list item selection).
    + Configuration | Styles: Added "Line spacing". Here you can 
      customize the general line spacing in Tree, Catalog, and all lists 
      and dropdowns. Allowed values are from -1 to 9, factory default is 
      0 for XP and earlier, 2 for Vista and later.
      Hereby the tweak ListsLineSpacing has been raised to GUI.
      Note that Tree, Catalog, and List support individual line spacing 
      customization on top of this general one, adjustable by Ctrl+Wheel 
      over the respective control.
    + Line Number Selection: Now the toggle behavior is like with the 
      classic Ctrl+Click toggle select (and also like checkbox select in 
      Explorer): On mouse down the focus is set, on mouse up the 
      selection is toggled.
      Tip: While the mouse is down you can move it to another row to 
      cancel the toggle select. In other words, toggle select will only 
      happen when mouse down and mouse up are on the same row.
    * Line Number Selection: Now it's triggered only if NO function key 
      is pressed (Ctrl, Shift, Alt). So you can e.g. lasso select 
      additional files (without removing any previous selections) by 
      holding CTRL right from the line numbers column.
    > Tip: There is a 6 pixel wide space between line numbers column and 
      icon where you can start a lasso select even with Line Number 
      Selection enabled. 
    - Removed the following change from v12.50.0027 - 2013-07-04 17:48 
      because it did not work too well:
      * Configuration | Fonts: Now the Configuration dialog adjusts on the 
        fly to new font settings (Buttons and Labels, and Dialogs) to give 
        an immediate preview.
    ! Scripting: The foreach construct did not work with global 
      variables as tokens. Fixed. Now this works as expected.
        // test
          global $g_Files = get('selecteditemspathnames', "|");
          global $g_File;
          foreach ($g_File, $g_Files, "|") {
            msg $g_File;
          }

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v12.60.0006 - 2013-07-15 14:33
  +++ Color Filters: Added "len:" and "lent:" as selectors for filename 
      length (with full path) and file title length (name without path). 
      The syntax is identical to the one of the "size:" selector, so you 
      can use all sorts of numerical comparison operators to define 
      limits and ranges.
      Examples:
        len: > 260    = color all files with a path/name longer than 260 characters
        lent: <= 12   = color all files with a name with 12 or fewer characters
    * List: From now on List view and Small Icons view use the same 
      padding as Details view.
      The value is tweakable using ListDetailsColumnsSpacingLeft (which 
      for these views is used for the left and right padding). The value 
      you state here is added to the new minimum padding of 4 pixels. 
      Factory default is 2 so you get a factory default padding of 6 
      pixels.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v12.60.0007 - 2013-07-16 11:09
    + Power Filters: Now you can use the Power Filters menu (it's the 
      arrow dropdown of the "Toggle Visual Filter" toolbar button) to 
      (un)select files by type, just like you know it from the "Type 
      Stats and Filter" menu:
      - Hold CTRL: Add all files of this type to the selection.
      - Hold SHIFT: Remove all files of this type from the selection.
      Note, however, that more complex Power Filters (age, size, attr) 
      are not supported here. It's the top section of the Power Filters 
      menu that will work, e.g. stuff like this:
        "Text|Text Files" {:Text}
        "Image|Image Files" {:Image}
        "Audio|Audio Files" {:Audio}
        "Video|Video Files" {:Video}
        "Office|Office Files" {:Office}
        *.txt; *.dat
      The actually applied selection filter patterns are displayed in 
      the Status Bar. With file types like {:Text} they are typically 
      too long a list to show completely, but the Status Bar tooltip 
      will reveal them all.
    * Catalog and Tree Tooltips now pop after the delay given in 
      "Configuration | File Info Tips | Initial delay in milliseconds".
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.
