Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v19.30.0004 - 2018-11-01 14:14
    + Toolbar | Dual Pane: Added toggle "Wide Tabs" (Window | Arrangement | Wide 
      Tabs) to the button's context menu. Makes sense here because it affects 
      the look when Dual Pane is off.
    * Window | Arrangement | Wide Tabs: The new factory default is OFF. Too 
      non-standard to throw it into a newbie face.
    * SC screen: Enhanced.
    ! Hover Box on Zip Files: Fixed a couple of glitches.
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.

    + Live Filter Box: Now you can choose the position of the Live Filter Box. 
      Either it is shown right of the Address Bar (the new factory default), or 
      in the left end of the Status Bar (the previously hard-coded position).
      - Toggle it here:
        - Window | Arrangement | Live Filter Box in Status Bar
        - Context menu of the Status Bar
        - Context menu of various layout-related Toolbar buttons
      - If the Address Bar is hidden then the LFB automatically goes to the 
        Status Bar.
      - In Address Bar position the LFB inherits the Address Bar font.
        In Status Bar position the LFB inherits the Status Bar font.
      - The state of this setting has been added to "Window | Load Layout..." 
        and "Window | Save Layout As...".
    * Live Filter Box: Now it's shown at startup by factory default.
    * Live Filter Box: Changed the icon from a looking glass to a filter. The 
      looking glass is more commonly used for search.
    + Configuration | Preview | Previewed Formats: After using button "Find..." 
      once, you can repeat the search from the current position by pressing 
      Shift+F3.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.104.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.104.lng is uploaded.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v19.30.0012 - 2018-11-05 16:22
    + Configuration | Find and Filter | Find Files & Branch View | Find Files: 
      Added option "Enable smart boolean query parsing" (previously also 
      referred to as Loose Boolean Match). Tick it to treat a query as Boolean 
      expression if it looks like one. If ticked then e.g.

        " AND " is seen as Boolean AND
        " and " is seen as Boolean AND
        " & "   is seen as Boolean AND
        " "     is seen as Boolean AND

        " OR "  is seen as Boolean OR
        " or "  is seen as Boolean OR
        " | "   is seen as Boolean OR
        ";"     is seen as Boolean OR
        
      If unticked all the characters are just seen as normal parts of the 
      filename.
      To have them treated as Boolean operators you have to prefix the Boolean 
      marker ":" to the query (or set Mode to "Boolean" in Find Files). But note 
      that the shorthand operators " " (AND) and ";" (OR) are only recognized in 
      Smart Boolean, not in Explicit Boolean mode.
      Note that this setting affects the parsing of Quick Search pattern as well 
      as Find Files (Name) patterns.
    > Tip: If you are unsure how your query is parsed you can always use this 
      script to reveal it (always returns the last-used query):
        text <get find_queryparsed>;
     * Smart Boolean Query Parsing: In all previous versions, SBQP had been 
      hard-coded to ON. From now on the factory default is OFF.
      Reason: Again and again users had been confused by the smartness. And 
      understandably so. This had been originally implemented because File 
      Explorer does it too (at least in earlier versions, not sure about now).
    > Upgraders: SBQP will be auto-set to ON so nothing will change for you.
    - Tweak FindBoolNoSmartDetect has been removed. It's fully replaced by the 
      new UI setting (FindSmartBooleanQueryParsing) which goes even a bit 
      further, IOW FindBoolNoSmartDetect was lacking anyway.
    ! Quick Search: With "Enable smart boolean query parsing" ticked (which was 
      the hard-coded situation up to this version), the pattern "Black & White & 
      Red (122).txt" did not match a file of the same name. Fixed.
      Note that such a pattern is interpreted as a Loose Boolean Search.
      It will now be applied as such:
        name:"*black*" AND name:"*white*" AND name:"*red (122).txt*"
      Before, it was applied as such:
        name:"*black*" AND name:"*white*" AND name:"*red 122.txt*"
      So, the parentheses in the filename were seen as part of the Boolean 
      expression. This will not longer happen with a Loose Boolean Search.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v19.30.0013 - 2018-11-07 12:27
    * Smart Boolean Query Parsing: From now on ";" is recognized as Boolean OR 
      even if "Enable smart boolean query parsing" is off. Reason: It's a 
      de-facto standard ever since and hence highly expected.
        Pattern         Matches
        -------------------------------
        Black;White     Black.txt
                        White.txt
                        Black White.txt
                        Black;White.txt
      Now if you want to match only "Black;White" you can use quotes and wildcards:
        "*Black;White*"
      Or you explicitly mark the pattern as Boolean by prefixing ":" (seems 
      paradoxical, but since ";" is not a strict Boolean operator but just a 
      smart convention, it is not recognized in the strict Boolean context):
        :Black;White
    * Smart Boolean Query Parsing: From now on " | " (pipe surrounded by spaces) 
      is recognized as Boolean OR even if "Enable smart boolean query parsing" 
      is off. Reason: It's non-ambiguous because | is not a valid character in a 
      filename.
        Pattern         Matches
        -------------------------------
        Black | White   Black.txt
                        White.txt
                        Black White.txt
                        Black;White.txt
    * Various Dropdown Lists: The match list (popped when typing into the edit 
      box) now has the same sort order as the normal dropdown list (when 
      clicking the down arrow button). Before, it was sorted alphabetically.
    * Merging Folders: You could merge folders by renaming one to the name of 
      the other. This should have raised a prompt but it seems this is not 
      reliable anymore in Win10 and maybe other versions. Since the risk of 
      unrecoverable data loss is too high I added an additional XYplorer-owned 
      prompt, with the explicit option to merge folders, plus an extra safety 
      prompt because of the heavy implications in case of a mistake.
      So you might end up getting these two prompts plus the Windows prompt as 
      well. A bit nagging, but safety first.
    ! Favorites | Special System Folders | Temp Folder: Since v19.30.0003 - 
      2018-10-31 19:18 it took you to the wrong location. Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

      message "Creating items here is not allowed."
      In case of a multi-location search the current list path (as shown in the 
      Breadcrumb Bar) will be used as the location of the new items.
    * Hover Box on Images: Now the frame has the same width regardless of the

Code: Select all

v19.30.0025 - 2018-11-12 19:01
    + Configuration | General | Refresh, Icons, History | Auto-Refresh: Added 
      option "Detect portable devices". Tick it to automatically detect when 
      portable devices are inserted or removed.
      Raises tweak WatchDevices to UI.
      Factory default is ON because it's expected behavior. However, if you 
      don't need it you might just turn it off to reduce some unnecessary 
      refresh events that might be triggered by turning on/off printers or 
      similar.
    - Undid this change from v19.10.0105 - 2018-08-12 17:20:
      * Tree: Too many unnecessary radical refresh events (e.g. when USB printer 
        was turned on/off). Reduced that to a reasonable amount.
      Reason: Plugging in/out of portable devices did not generate an automatic 
      refresh anymore.
      Tip: If you don't need that refresh on PD plug in/out, untick the new 
      "Detect portable devices" option. Your tree will be calmer.
    ! Auto-Refresh: Under certain conditions certain events did not trigger a 
      list-refresh anymore since 20181012. Fixed.

    + Hover Box: Now you can get a Zip Contents Preview in the Hover Box also 
      for the RAR format. 
      XYplorer tries to find the needed helper file "UnRAR.exe" automatically in 
      the usual locations (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\WinRAR\UnRAR.exe). So if 
      you are reasonably lucky it should just work.
      If the preview fails you can tweak the location, for example:
        ZipPathUnRAR=C:\My Crazy Path To WinRAR\UnRAR.exe
      Notes:
      - Obviously WinRAR has to be installed on your system, or at least 
        UnRAR.exe has to exist (a real installation might not be necessary).
      - Unicode characters in the packed items are shown as "?". Unfortunately 
        UnRAR.exe does not seem to support listing those characters.
      - Summary file sizes are not provided (contrary to ZIP previews).

Code: Select all

v19.30.0027 - 2018-11-14 19:11
    + Text Preview: Added tweak to remember the last selected code page across 
      previews:
        TextPreviewCodePageRemember=1
      If TextPreviewCodePageRemember=0 then the codepage will automatically 
      switch back to the system default code page for the next preview.
      Tip: You select the codepage under the orange button on the Preview tab on 
      the Info Panel (F12) while a text file is being previewed.
      If TextPreviewCodePageRemember=1 then you can, for example, set the 
      codepage to Arabic (1256) and all text previews will use this codepage to 
      interprete the bytes in the file. Advantage: You don't have to set the 
      system-wide default codepage to Arabic!
    ! Hover Box on RAR Files: Fixed a couple of glitches.
    > Hover Box on RAR Files: Note that it is currently not possible to 
      recognize empty folders as "folders". So they will be listed as if they 
      were files.
