Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

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

Code: Select all

v17.50.0000 - 2017-01-20 18:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:    
  +++ Quick Audio Preview. Mouse down on the file icon to hear the sound. Mouse 
      move to scroll. Mouse up to stop. MP3, WAV, FLAC, OGG... you name it. With 
      interactive progress bar. Probably the most convenient audio file previewer 
      on the planet.
  +++ Support of Filenames Ending With Dot or Space. Those filenames are invalid 
      in the Windows name space and the shell cannot do anything with them. 
      Delete, rename, move, it all fails with the standard File Explorer. XYplorer 
      now can handle them.
  +++ Extra Large Toolbar. Now you can have extra large buttons (48x48 pixels). 
      Increases toolbar usability on high-resolution screens.

    ! Info Panel | Properties: Double-clicking a key label to copy key and value 
      to clipboard did not yet support Unicode values. Fixed.
    * Toolbar: Buttons were stretched at screen resolutions > 100%. No more. 
      Since Extra Large buttons it isn't necessary anymore.

v17.50.0101 - 2017-01-25 20:38
    + Configuration | Mouse Down Blow Up: Added option "Loop". Tick it to loop 
      the playback.
      Was hard-coded to ON before.
    + SC formatlist enhanced: Added format "F" for "filter (no wildcards)".
      Syntax: formatlist(list, [format], [separator=|], [param]], [flags])
        format:   Switches for the desired formatting.
          f = filter (wildcards)
          F = filter (no wildcards)
      Examples:
        text formatlist("a*|ab", "f", , "a*");     //a*|ab
        text formatlist("a*|ab", "f", , "!a*");    //[nothing]
        text formatlist("a*|ab", "F", , "a*");     //a*
        text formatlist("a*|ab", "F", , "!a*");    //ab      
    ! Paper Folders: A Paper Folder with hidden folders by an unticked "View | 
      Show Items | Show Folders in List" would forget all folders when being 
      (auto-)saved. Fixed: A Paper Folder in such a state will not be saved 
      (just like a Paper Folder filtered by a Visual Filter).

  *** Custom Copy | Overwrite Prompt: Now the new file ("File to be copied") is 
      shown at the top, and the old file ("Existing file") is shown at the bottom.
      Additionally a big arrow shows the direction of the operation in question.
      It might look a bit non-standard, but it's a huge gain in clarity and 
      hence usability.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0094.
    ! Tree and List: Merging folders by renaming one to the name of another 
      failed with a bizarre shell error (Error 0x80070057: The parameter is 
      incorrect) if any same-named files were contained. Fixed.
    ! Command Line: Switch /select did not work as expected when XY was already 
      running (it opened the passed path instead of opening the parent and 
      selecting the child). Fixed.
    ! Command Line: Startup paths with files under special folders (e.g. 
      "Desktop\a.txt") were not parsed correctly. Fixed.
    ! Type Stats and Filter: Would not handle extensions containing the 
      characters "#" or "[" correctly. Fixed.
    ! Extra Large Toolbar: Icons of executables in User Buttons were not 
      upscaled correctly. Fixed.

      stops working for some reason. To show the log run this script line after 
      dragging failed:
        text get("debuglog");

      function and scope of the buttons more intuitive.

v17.50.0201 - 2017-01-31 16:46
    + Find Files and Quick Search: Added switch /paths by which you can 
      return items by the name of their parent folder of full path.
        /paths=path;path;path
      Remarks:
        - Paths are separated by ; or | (the latter takes precedence).
        - Wildcards (*, ?, #, and [groups]) are supported.
        - If path contains no "\" (backslash) then it is compared with the 
          immediate parent folder of the item in question.
        - If path contains at least one "\" (backslash) then it is compared with 
          the whole path (incl. trailing backslash!) of the item in question.
        - Paths can be quoted (useful of path contains ";").
      Examples:
        - Return all items under parents "a" or "b":
          * /paths=a;b
        - Return all TXT items under parents "a*" or "b*":
          *.txt /paths=a*;b*
        - Return all TXT items under parents with exactly one character:
          *.txt /paths=?
        - Return all items under parents "a;b" or "c;d".
          * /paths="a;b";"c;d"
        - Return all items under parents "a;b" or "c;d" (alternative method):
          * /paths=a;b|c;d
        - Return all items with "\test\" anywhere in the path:
          * /paths=*\test\*
        - Return all items with "\test\" anywhere in the path, or with a parent 
          three characters long:
          * /paths=*\test\*;???

v17.50.0202 - 2017-02-01 12:10
    + Find Files and Quick Search: Now the following switches support variables 
      in their values:
        /excl, /exclfile, /paths, /types
      Example:
        *.jpg;*.avi;*.mov;*.mp4;*.mpg;*.wmv /paths="*<date mmdd>*"
    + Find Files and Quick Search: Switches /excl and /exclfile now allow 
      quoting a single path. Can be useful to avoid ";" is seen as a list 
      separator, e.g.:
        *.jpg;*.png /excl="E:\Test\a;b"
    + New variable:
        <xytagdatdef>  = XYplorer default tags database path/file
      That's the one that will be loaded on tagload("");. Usually it's
      "<xydata>\tag.dat" but there are exceptions possible.
    * Configuration | Previewed Formats: Increased the clarity of the interface.
