Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v14.10.0117 - 2014-06-05 11:56
    + Find Files | Contents: Added option "Search binaries".
      If ticked then absolutely all files will be searched for the given string, 
      primarily for textual contents, and, if no textual match is found, 
      secondarily for binary contents.
      If unticked then only textual documents are searched (DOC, PDF, TXT etc), 
      and the meta data of media and image files. For complex file types the 
      32-bit versions of the matching IFilters need to be installed.
      Note that before, this option was internally hard-coded to ticked. So now 
      you can make the content search much faster by skipping all binary files.
    ! Would refuse to rename DVD RAM discs. Fixed.
    ! Tagging: The correct capitalization of server and share in the target path 
      was not ensured before copying items to UNC paths. This could lead to 
      invalid items in the tags database. Fixed.
    * Tree: Server names were title-cased by default. But this would conflict 
      with the tags database where items are ensured to have the correct 
      capitalization. Therefore from now on, server names are shown with their 
      original capitalization (which is often ALL UPPERCASE).
    + Configuration | Tags | Options | Database Check: After checking for 
      orphans and no orphans are found there is now the option for an 
      additional check for dupes and false capitalizations.
      (If orphans are found this additional service is and has always been done 
      automatically when the orphans are removed.)
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.

v14.10.0118 - 2014-06-05 18:17
    * Find Files | Contents: Replaced the recently added "Search binaries" 
      option with another interface that provides better logic. Now you have 
      three choices for "Type" (of content):
        - Text: Match textual data in textual documents (DOC, PDF, TXT etc), and 
          the meta data of media and image files. Textual/meta data from complex 
          documents is only retrievable if supported by installed 32-bit 
          IFilters.
          Non-textual files are skipped.
          This is probably what most users expect to happen when they do a 
          content search.
        - Binary: Match the raw bytes of all sorts of files.
          Rather interesting for programmers I guess.
        - Both: Combination of both. First textual data are checked for textual 
          documents, if no match is found or it's a non-textual file then binary 
          data are checked.
      Remarks:
      - This setup allows you to do a binary search only, which was not possible 
        anymore before.
      - "Text" is the default setting (factory default as well as after "Reset 
        Filters").
      - Both "Text" and "Binary" include automatic UTF-8 decoding for files types 
        where UTF-8 encoding is a possibility. Also BOM-less UTF-8 is supported 
        if enabled by ticking Configuration | Preview | Text preview | UTF-8 
        auto-detection.
    ! Would refuse to rename DVD RAM discs. Fixed also for the List. And now it 
      should actually perform the rename.
    - Undid the following change from v7.90.0302 - 2009-05-16 17:54:
      * List: When inline-renaming PDFs or DOCs any preview is now closed 
        even before the rename box is shown (not just before the actual 
        rename). This is an attempt to fix issues with locked documents.
      Reason: It's probably not necessary anymore.
      You can have the old behavior back by setting this tweak:
        ClosePreviewBeforeRename=doc.pdf

Code: Select all

v14.10.0119 - 2014-06-06 11:04
    * Tab Icons: An icon specified in the caption (Rename Tab) is now resolved 
      relative to the Icons Path (default: <xydata>\Icons). Before, it's been 
      resolved to the app path (a very unlikely place to find icons, especially 
      since UAC).
    ! Tab Icons: When customized via Rename Tab "[Caption]|Icon" a Find tab's 
      icon was not immediately updated. Fixed.
    ! Renaming volume labels: Fixed various issues. Now Unicode is supported, 
      characters that are invalid for filenames are tolerated, and renaming DVD 
      RAM discs should work better now.
      You now get an error message if the label was too long for the OS. In Win8 
      the limit seems to be 32 characters.

    * Catalog Icons: An icon specified in the caption (separated by |) is now 
      resolved relative to the Icons Path (default: <xydata>\Icons). Before, 
      it's been resolved to the app path (a very unlikely place to find icons, 
      especially since UAC).
    * User-Defined Commands Icons: An icon specified in the caption (separated 
      by |) is now resolved relative to the Icons Path (default: 
      <xydata>\Icons). Before, it's been resolved to the app data path. This has 
      been changed in analogy with Catalog and Tabs.
    % Type Ahead Find: Now on a typing a non-matching sequence you get the 
      shaking "Alert" icon only once, not on each subsequent keystroke.

    + Tweak to hide the trailing slash from paths in the Address Bar box and

        ABPathNoSlash=1
      Note: I intend to make this the new default soon. Test it!

v14.20.0101 - 2014-06-16 15:33
    * Custom Copy: The "Creating Folders..." message has been replaced by a more 
      lively one that shows what's actually going on (apart from creating 
      necessary folders there's collecting the material to be copied and 
      checking the necessary space in the target location). The phase is now 
      called "Preparing to Copy" respectively "Preparing to Move".
      Note: Currently only implemented for foreground processing! XYcopy will 
      get it after debugging.
    * Live Filter Box: Improved the "Auto-Select First" behavior. Now the 
      auto-selection is only applied when otherwise no item would be selected. 
      That way you can toggle filters while keeping the selection.
    ! CAS: Did not handle Loose Boolean Match syntax correctly when combining 
      several searches. Fixed. Now Loose Boolean terms are auto-converted to 
      regular Boolean terms before combining the searches.
    ! Layout: Moving the mouse over the splitters would pause a running search. Fixed.

Code: Select all

v14.20.0201 - 2014-06-18 14:00
    + Backup / Custom Copy: Added a new condition for the behavior on name 
      collisions: "Overwrite if different size or date". Date here refers to the 
      modified date.
      This setting provides a pretty good way to copy only what is different and 
      skip the rest. Helps maximizing the lifetime of your SSD, and generally 
      speeds up copy jobs.
      Note: Since the actual contents of the files are not compared (for 
      performance reasons) there is the slight chance that two files with the 
      same size and modified date still have different contents. But that should 
      be quite unlikely in real life.      
    + Panes | Sync Select: Added two commands:
      - Select Different: Select all matches with a different size or modified date.
      - Select Uniques and Different: Select all items that are unique or different.
      Notes:
      - Sizes are only compared for files, not for folders.
      - If a folder and a file happen to be have the same name and modified 
        date, they will count as different (regardless of the size).
    + SC sync enhanced: Added two new commands.
      Syntax: sync([command], [justcalc], [ignoreextensions], [mode], [inactivepane])
        command:  The sync command to be executed:
                  - [Default] SelectMatches
                  - SelectUniques
                  - SelectNewer
                  - SelectDifferent (NEW)
                  - SelectUniquesAndNewer
                  - SelectUniquesAndDifferent (NEW)
                  - SelectSelected
      Examples:
        sync("SelectDifferent");
        sync("SelectUniquesAndDifferent");
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0059.
    ! Catalog | Insert as New Category Here | Tags: Still did not do all 
      necessary auto-quoting of tags. Fixed.

    + Configuration | Controls and More | Miscellaneous: Added option "Address 
      Bar paths include trailing backslash". Tick it to show the trailing 
      backslash for paths in the Address Bar box and MRU, and in the Find Files 
      Location box and MRU.
      Note that the ticked state was the hard-coded factory setting in previous 
      versions. Now the default is to show no trailing backslash.
    * Panes | Swap Panes: Now selections and focus are preserved after the swap.
    * Panes | Swap Panes: Renamed it to "Swap Locations".
    * Window | Show Navigation Panel: Renamed it to "Show Navigation Panels".
    ! Layout: Fixed a couple of glitches.
    ! File | Rename Special | Remove Diacritics: Did not work anymore with 
      Unicode strings since v14.00.0116. Fixed.
