Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

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

Code: Select all

v14.00.0000 - 2014-04-28 12:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ On Demand Columns. Now you can not only decide what a column shows, but 
      also when. This allows you to design very complex columns (that would take 
      a long time to load completely in a huge folder) and generate their 
      contents only on demand and per cell (by clicking into the cell). A 
      revolutionary feature that's full of crazy possibilities.
  +++ Column-Based Search. Now you can search for files by the contents of your 
      Custom Columns. Makes it a snap to find all images with an Aspect Ratio of 
      16:9, or all files where Created and Modified date are identical.
  +++ Advanced Content Search. Now you can search the textual contents of 
      complex file types like DOC, DOCX, ODT, and PDF.
  +++ Ignore Articles When Sorting. Now sorting will optionally ignore "a", 
      "an", and "the" (configurable) at the beginning of filenames. A case in 
      point are files named after song or movie titles.
  +++ Image Preview in Overwrite Prompt. The overwrite prompt now features 
      thumbnails for the copied and the existing image.
  +++ Multilingual Support. Added support for Turkish.
  +++ License Policy. Before, the Standard License was valid for one major 
      version cycle of upgrades. Many users were unhappy with this. Some even
      irrationally thought it would be better if XYplorer was developed slower 
      so they would get free upgrades for a longer period.
      Time for change. From now on, the Standard License is valid for one year 
      of upgrades which, given the current pace of development, means roughly a 
      doubling of upgrades for the same price.
      The new policy is applied retroactively to all Standard Licenses from 
      12.40 onwards, i.e. a Standard License for 12.40 will be valid for 14.00!

      display raw numbers with the usual bytes formatting. The actual formatting 
      (Bytes, KB, MB, etc) is taken from the Size column and can be changed via 
      right-clicking the Size column.
    ! Custom Copy: The error prompt window was cropped at the bottom since image 
      previews were shown in it. Fixed.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0057.

    * Custom Columns: From now on, no more error messages are shown for scripts 
      in scripted columns. The erroring script will act as if you pressed 
      "Continue" in the error dialog, so processing scripted columns is now 
      fully error tolerant.
    ! Custom Columns: Stepping mode was still obeyed in scripts called via SC 
      Load. Fixed.

    + MP3: MP3 Special Properties and MP3 Custom Columns now support ID3V2 tags.
    + Menu Tools | Customize List: Added "Ignore Articles When Sorting". This 
      replaces the global setting Configuration | Sort and Rename | Sort | Ignore 
      articles when sorting.
      Now you can quickly toggle the setting via KS, and confine it to certain 
      folders via FVS, or to certain tabs.
    - Configuration | Sort and Rename | Sort | Ignore articles when sorting: 
      Removed. Replaced by Tools | Customize List | Ignore Articles When Sorting.
    ! Ignore Articles When Sorting: When turned ON the sort order in Branch View 
      became incorrect. Fixed by changing the behavior. Now articles are ignored 
      only in file names (not in folder names). That way also Tree and List 
      remain in sync with respect to the order of folders.
    ! Custom Toolbar Buttons: A TAB character within a quoted string would lead 
      to wrong parsing of the button. Fixed.

    ! MP3: ID3v2 parsing had some bugs yet. Fixed #2.
    > MP3 Preview: You can only edit ID3v1 tags. For files with ID3v2 tags the 
      editing is disabled. The latter never worked and will never work, but 
      since XY now supports displaying ID3v2 the disabled state had to be added 
      because ID3v2 is shown whenever it is present (even if ID3v1 is present as 
      well).

Code: Select all

v14.00.0105 - 2014-05-07 21:16
    + Menu View | Columns: Added command "Save Column Layout As...". Saves the 
      current column layout (all visible columns, their sequence, their 
      captions, their widths) to a small TXT file in the new application data 
      path <xydata>\Columns.
      Only enabled in Browse and Find mode.
    + Menu View | Columns: Added command "Load Saved Column Layout...". Loads a 
      new column layout (all visible columns, their sequence, their captions, 
      their widths) from a small TXT file in the new application data path 
      <xydata>\Columns.
      Only enabled in Browse and Find mode.
    > Remarks on the above enhancements:
      - Now isn't this a cool way to handle layouts?! File based! After all this 
        is a file manager.
      - You can save as many different layouts as you want.
      - Custom captions are supported, even in Unicode. Hence the TXT files are 
        in UTF-16LE.
      - Sure, they are portable.
      - Hey, you can even share those little layout files.
    - The following closely related commands have been superseded by the above 
      new commands (taking over the old command IDs). They had confused too many 
      users anyway:
        View | Columns | Save Column Layout
        View | Columns | Load Saved Column Layout
    + SC formatlist enhanced: Added an optional "flags" parameter. Currently it 
      has only one value that allows you to filter a list of full paths only by 
      the filenames.
      Syntax: formatlist(list, [format], [separator="|"], [param], [flags])
        flags: f =  On format f: Filter a list of full paths only by the 
                    filenames, i.e. the filter given in "param" is only matched 
                    against the last components of the paths. (It is not 
                    verified whether the last components are existing files or 
                    folders.)
      Examples:
        text formatlist("C:\A.txt|C:\C.txt", "f", "|", "*c*");      //C:\A.txt|C:\C.txt
        text formatlist("C:\A.txt|C:\C.txt", "f", "|", "*c*", "f"); //C:\C.txt
