Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v19.60.0011 - 2019-02-08 10:38
    ! Truncating paths and adding ellipses could lead to a crash in some rather 
      rare situations where the truncated path ended up having more characters 
      than the original path (possible when the ellipsis dots take less space 
      than the removed characters, depending on the font). Fixed.
    ! SC quicksearch: Since 20190128 the special character "*" for "This PC" 
      (search everywhere) was not recognized anymore. Fixed.
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.

Code: Select all

v19.60.0101 - 2019-02-11 21:39
    ! Drag & drop from archives forgot folders modified timestamps. A Windows 
      bug actually it seems, but XYplorer now can work around it. Fixed.
    ! Info Panel | Properties: Timestamping did not work correctly in AM/PM 
      format when specifying a PM time with one-digit hours (0 - 9). Fixed.
    ! Info Panel | Properties | File Dates: Tooltip was wrong when the List date 
      column format was different from the system date format (e.g. "mm/dd/yyyy" 
      versus "dd/mm/yyyy") and a date allowed for ambiguities (e.g. today 
      11/2/19). Fixed.

v19.60.0106 - 2019-02-16 16:58
    + Menu Favorites: Added command "Load Tags Database...". Allows you to load 
      a different tags database right from the GUI. Before, this was only 
      possible via scripting. The 16 recently loaded tags databases are 
      remembered across sessions in an MRU list.
      If the current tags database is dirty (i.e., there are changes not yet 
      saved to disk) you are prompted whether to save it before loading the new 
      one.
    * Tags | Wording: Replaced "attached to" by "assigned to" in various places. 
      The former version was misleading since nothing is "attached" to the 
      tagged file in XY's tagging.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.108.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.108.lng is uploaded.
        You will be notified if you have subscribed to this thread:
        https://www.xyplorer.com/xyfc/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=9648
    ! Info Panel: Buttons & Labels font size magnification borked UI (checkbox 
      height did not downsize again). Fixed.

    ! View | Calculate Folder Sizes: Gosh, the autosizing of the Size column 
      (v19.60.0002 - 2019-01-31 16:22) was wrongly implemented. Of course, this 
      should happen only on this particular command, not on any other folder 
      size calculations (triggered via List Style or global settings). Fixed.

  +++ Tags: Raised the number of Extra Tags from 5 to 16. This means you now have 
      16 freely definable User Columns, which gives you a total of 19 
      independent fields (including Label, Tags, and Comment) for each file. 
      Fields that you can fill, display, sort by, search for, carry around on a 
      stick, and share with your team (when the tags DB sits on a server). YEAH!
      !!! WARNING: Internally this has been a MAJOR change with literally 
          hundreds of deep code modifications, meaning: You might want to backup 
          your tags database (<xydata>\tag.dat) before trying this beta...
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0143.
    ! Custom Copy: On a canceled or skipped overwrite prompt (and some other 
      situations) there would have been a superfluous list refresh. Fixed.
    * Configuration | Information | Tags | Options: Changed the order of items 
      in the popup menu. "Remove All Tags..." moved from the top to the bottom.

    * Tabs: Now when you open a new tab via double-click on the empty part of 
      the tab bar this tab is always opened in the last position, even if 
      "Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs | Open new tab next to current" is 
      ticked.    
    * Tabs: Now you can click the X-close button of a current or non-current tab 
      while the app is in the background and the tab will be closed.
    ! SC setlayout: Since 20190206 some internal values went where they should 
      not and retrievin the layout actually slightly altered it internally. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | Information | Tags | Edit: Holding CTRL while pressing the 
      button crashed when you had more than the default 7 color schemes defined. 
      Fixed.

    ! Configuration | Find and Filter | Find Files & Branch View | Branch View | 
      Default to tree-like sort order: This setting was ignored when going back
