Code: Select all

v19.00.0007 - 2018-06-02 20:01
    + Preview Pane: Now when an audio or video file has no associated preview 
      handler but still is previewable using DirectShow/quartz.dll you will find 
      the basic controls (Play, Pause, Progress Bar) in the Status Bar. Before, 
      you could not control auch a preview at all in the Preview Pane (you had 
      to open the Preview Tab to use the controls there).    
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.

v19.00.0008 - 2018-06-09 13:45
    * List | Full Row Select mode: From now on, when you right-click an 
      unselected row anywhere but in the very caption it does not select that 
      item anymore but behaves like right-clicking the white space (pops the 
      white space context menu without changing any selections).
      This is pretty much like File Explorer behaves as well. Before, it could 
      have been hard to pop the white space context menu when in Full Row Select 
      mode because of lack of white space.
    ! 64-bit Context Menu Paste Bug: When copying items via the "Copy" command 
      in the Context Menu, sometimes the "Paste" command was missing when 
      popping that menu on the target folder. Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

    * SC QuickSearch enhanced: Added flag "n" to return the matching items

      Syntax: quicksearch([query="*"], [path], [separator="<crlf>"], [flags])
        flags:  [optional] String of flags to modify the function.

      Hover Box is now dark as well.
    ! Branch View: Sorting by Path sometimes inconsistent with sort order in 
      Tree. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | File Operations | File Operations | Background Processing

      2018-05-22 19:19. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | Find and Filter | Filters & Type Ahead Find | Type Ahead

Code: Select all

v19.00.0101 - 2018-06-13 12:49
    * Configuration | General | Tree and List | Tree | Check existence of 
      subfolders in tree: Now this setting is honored when the Tree is 
      auto-refreshed. It is still ignored when the Tree is actively refreshed by 
      the user.
      BTW, this might also speed up refreshing a network location, where "Check 
      existence of subfolders in tree" is usually OFF.
    ! Hover Box: Did not work for files on portable devices (wrong message "File 
      is empty"). Fixed.
      Of course, not all file types can be previewed on a PD, but at least now 
      you get in the Hover Box what you get in MDBU and Preview.
    ! Text Dialogs: If you checked the Word Wrap checkbox in a text dialog (e.g. 
      via "Scripting | Run Script..." or SC text) the Find dialog didn't popup 
      anymore on Ctrl+F. Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

Code: Select all

v19.00.0102 - 2018-06-14 20:20
    + Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs: Added option "Reuse existing tabs 
      when changing the location". Tick it to reuse existing tabs when changing 
      locations through Favorite Folders, Favorite Files, Special System 
      Folders, Hotlist, Recent Locations, or Catalog.
      This raises the tweak TabReuseTabs to the UI. The other possible values of 
      the tweak are hereby discarded.
    * Status Bar: Before, when you selected one or more folders in the list the 
      Status Bar would show: "[n] selected: 0 bytes", even if the folders had 
      contents. Quite confusing and misleading.
      From now on it's handled like this:
      Example files only:
        2 selected: 3,11 KB (3.183 bytes)
      Example folders only:
        4 selected: 4 folders
      Example files and folders:
        6 selected: 3,11 KB (3.183 bytes) and 4 folders
      Additional advantage: You have a quick way to check the number of folders 
      among the selections.
    * Status Bar: Similar story as above for the "total" display (if nothing is 
      selected).
      Example files only:
        total: 3,11 KB (3.183 bytes)
      Example folders only:
        total: 4 folders
      Example files and folders:
        total: 3,11 KB (3.183 bytes) and 4 folders
      Additional advantage: You have a quick way to check the number of folders 
      among the listed items.

    + Scripting got a new command.

    * Help | Various Information: Improved the Windows version information.
    * File | Exit without Saving: Ever since we have an Action Log the log file is 
      invariably saved on exit, even on "Exit without Saving". Reason: The Action 
      Log should be in sync with the actions performed on the file system.
      But now I think "without Saving" is "without Saving". So nothing is saved 
      anymore on "Exit without Saving".
    ! Portable Devices: On Windows 10 then auto-refresh on plug in/out did not 
      work. Fixed.
    ! Portable Devices: Fixed a couple of glitches.
