Code: Select all

v16.10.0310 - 2016-01-16 14:53
    * File Operations using the shell (not Custom Copy): From now on XYplorer 
      will avoid the odd "Connected Files" smartness that has been introduced with 
      Win 2000 (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb776887%28VS.85%29.aspx#connected ),
      e.g. "XY.htm" file + "XY-files" folder. Deleting or moving or copying one 
      of such a couple would also delete or move or copy the other. Madness. 
      This will not happen anymore in XYplorer from now on.
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.

      not work anymore since 20151211, e.g.:
        New* and tags:cats /t
      Fixed.
    ! PFA: Folders with "an extension" (with something that looked like one) 
      were treated like files with that extension. Fixed. Folders have no 
      extensions.

Code: Select all

v16.20.0000 - 2016-01-18 12:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Global Visual Filters. One of the best features of XYplorer got even 
      better. All previous limits have been stripped from Global Visual Filters. 
      Global filtering now is totally easy to do and more powerful at the same 
      time. No extra rules to learn, it just works as you expect it to work.

    + Rename Special | RegExp Rename: Also here "Move on Rename" aka "Batch

        Pattern:  ^(\d+)-(\d+)- > $1\$2\$1-$2-

    ! Find by Tags: Tags containing the # characters were not always found when 
      "Configuration | Find Files & Branch View | Find Files | Enable extended 
      pattern matching" was turned off. Fixed. Now it works always, 
      independently of that setting.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v16.20.0003 - 2016-01-20 16:32
    + Configuration | Tree and List | Items in Tree and List: Added option "Hide 
      protected operating system files". Tick it to hide all items (file and 
      folders) that have the HIDDEN and the SYSTEM attribute set. This setting 
      overrules the settings "Show hidden files and folders" and "Show system 
      files and folders".
      Note that Windows Explorer (File Explorer) has the same setting with the 
      same name, factory default to ON. In XYplorer, being a power tool, the 
      factory default is OFF. I kept logic ("Hide" instead of "Show") and 
      semantics ("Files" instead of "Items" or "Files and Folders") of 
      Explorer's setting to make it easily recognizable to users coming from 
      Explorer.
    + Configuration | Sort and Rename | Rename | Serial rename by Up and Down 
      keys: Extended this functionality to all small lists, e.g. List Management.
    + Custom Toolbar Buttons: Now Ctrl+A and some other tricks also work in the 
      four text boxes of the Edit User Button dialog.
    ! Find by Tags: The recent fix was rubbish. Fixed again. Now # is 
      recognized as wildcard if "Configuration | Find Files & Branch View | Find 
      Files | Enable extended pattern matching" is ticked.
    ! Color Filters: The old Attributes selector "/" was not supported anymore 
      since v15.70.0002 - 2015-09-01 15:55. While the new selector is "attr:" 
      the old "/" is currently still supported (but strongly deprecated).

    * Locked Tree: Now when you collapse the parent of the current node the 
      current folder will remain the same. Before, the parent folder became the 
      new current folder (which still and rightfully happens with an unlocked 
      tree).
      The new behavior is okay, or even expected, because the Locked Tree may be 
      out of perfect synch with the List. It's its very nature.
    ! Command Line: Paper Folders did not work as start path. Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v16.20.0006 - 2016-01-22 13:21
    + Find Files and Quick Search: Added switch /types=... by which you can 
      setup an inline custom type filter -- pretty cool!      
        /types=ext;ext;ext   List of ;-separated extensions.
      Remarks:
        - If this type filter is set, only files are returned, no folders.
        - Generic file types are supported, e.g. {:Image}
      Examples:
        - Search two folders for all files not older than 14 days of types JPG, 
          PING, or PONG:
            E:\Test\a;E:\Test\b?ageM: <= 14 d /types=jpg;ping;pong
        - Search the current folder for all files "a*" or "b*" of types JPG or 
          PNG:
            a*;b* /types=jpg;png
          Note that without this switch you had to do something like this to 
          achieve the same:
            (a* or b*) and (*.jpg or *.png)
       - Combine extensions and generic file types:
            ageM: <= 14 d /types=txt;{:Image};pop        
    * Variable <get trigger> enhanced and CTB drop behavior fixed.
      - Mode "ctbindex" is now case-insensitive.
      - When dropping on CTBs <get trigger> now returns the correct mousebtn and ctbindex.
      - The mousebtn return is additionally OR-ed with the new value 16 which 
        denotes a drop on a button. So:
          Left button drop  = 17
          Right button drop = 18
    * Configuration | Tree and List | List | Select last used subfolder: Now 
      this function overwrites "Configuration | Refresh, Icons, History | 
      History | History retains selections" when there are no selections to 
      retain.
    - Locked Tree: Removed recent change. All back to before.
    * Digital Signature: Brandnew SHA-256 certificate, now also with SHA-256 
      timestamp. Exceptionally this beta version (XYplorer.exe) has been signed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v16.20.0007 - 2016-01-23 13:55
    + Command Line Switches: Added switch /path. Lets you pass a startup path, 
      optionally quoted (quotes are needed if the path contains spaces).
      Examples:
        XYplorer.exe /path=C:\
        XYplorer.exe /path="C:\New Folder"
      Remarks:
      - The previous way to pass a startup path without any switch still works:
        XYplorer.exe C:\
        XYplorer.exe "C:\New Folder"
      - The new explicit path switch overwrites the old non-switch way. This 
        will startup at "C:\New Folder", D:\ is ignored:
        XYplorer.exe /path="C:\New Folder" D:\
    ! Network: App hang when attempting to scroll a list while the app is 
      waiting for network response. Fixed.
    * Updated the help file.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v16.20.0101 - 2016-02-01 17:37
    * Full Screen Preview: Now the status bar is forced to be visible for full 
      screen PDF previews.
      This is necessary because PDF preview handlers typically eat all 
      keystrokes, so without a status bar and a title bar you can end up with an 
      unclosable preview once the PDF has the input focus and you have nothing 
      to click on to regain the focus.
    * ContextMenu64: New version 1.2.4.0.
    ! ContextMenu64: The "Send To" submenu had too many entries. Fixed.
    % ContextMenu64: Any non-first calls (per XYplorer session) became faster. A 
      speed difference between 32-bit and 64-bit context menu is not noticable 
      anymore here under Win 8.1 (and probably other Windows).
    ! Shell Copy: The target list was not updated (and select-on-paste failed as 
      a consequence) under certain conditions since v16.10.0306 - 2016-01-12 
      21:46. Fixed.
    ! File | Rename Special | Remove Diacritics: Did not work for Combining 
      Diacritical Marks. Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v16.20.0102 - 2016-02-02 14:58
    + Menu View | Show Items: Added option "Hide Protected Operating System 
      Files". Corresponds to setting "Configuration | Tree and List | Items in 
      Tree and List | Hide protected operating system files", but can be 
      assigned a keyboard shortcut.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.71.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.71.lng is uploaded.
        You will be notified if you have subscribed to this thread:
        http://www.xyplorer.com/xyfc/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=9648
    ! Maxi Tree: The current node got expanded on inserting/removing a removable 
      drive. Fix #4. Now it's not dependent anymore on the setting of 
      "Configuration | Tree and List | Tree | Expand destination node in tree".
    * Thumbs Cache: Now the cache files are internally marked for being "Zoom To 
      Fill" or not. A "z" is appended to the dimensions.
      For example:
        E:\Test\Uranus\*300x200     Normal
        E:\Test\Uranus\*300x200z    Zoom To Fill
      This scheme is used inside the cache file, in the cache DB file 
      (XYThumbs.txt), and for deriving the MD5-generated names of the cache 
      files.
      Why all this: You now get independent caches for normal and "Zoom To Fill" 
      thumbnails. Different thumbnails, different caches -- a natural thing to 
      do. And toggling "Zoom To Fill" now happens in no time.
      Future: The "Zoom To Fill" property might be stored per-tab in a later 
      version (just like the thumbnails dimensions are already now).
    * Configuration | Thumbnails | Zoom to fill: The above change in caching 
      allows for an immediate switch of view when changing this setting (which I 
      think is what most users would expect to happen). Before, changing the 
      setting only affected any newly created thumbnails.    
    + Toolbar: The above changes now allow for adding "Zoom to Fill" to the 
      context menu of View related buttons when thumbnails are being shown. 
      Immediate toggle right from the Toolbar -- cool!
      Note that the toggle affects both panes (if both show thumbnails) and all 
      other thumbnail tabs. After all "Zoom to Fill", just like "Show Captions", 
      is a global setting.
