    + Configuration | Preview | Preview | Image preview: Totally rewrote the 
      display of transparent areas in images. Before, you just could choose 
      between grid or no grid. Now you have more options, including the nice 
      "neutral" option which melts the transparent areas with the surrounding 
      background.
      So, there is a new dropdown called "Transparency background" with 4 
      options:
        - Neutral
        - Grid
        - White
        - Black
    - Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails: Removed option "Show transparency 
      grid".
    + Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails: Added a new dropdown called 
      "Transparency background" with 4 options:
        - Neutral
        - Grid
        - White
        - Black
    * Floating Preview: Changed "Transparency Grid" to "Cycle Transparency 
      Background". Cycles through the 4 options Neutral, Grid, White, Black.
    > Floating Preview: Just note how the "neutral" option nicely adjusts the 
      display when you cycle the background color (keyboard shortcut B).
    + Hover Box: Now it supports the user-selected transparency background for 
      GIF and PNG. Before the transparent background was always white.
      The relevant setting is Configuration | Preview | Preview | Floating 
      preview | Transparency background.

    + Hover Box: Now you can cycle the transparency background of the Image 
      Preview (which also affects the Hover Box): Simply press key "T" while the 
      Hover Box is shown. Internal values:
        0 = Neutral
        1 = Grid
        2 = White
        3 = Black
    + Hover Box: Now it supports embedded thumbnails from PSD files.
    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: PatchImage
      Action: Replaces an internal image, e.g. of a toolbar button, with one 
              from a file.
      Syntax: patchimage(key, [file], [size=3], [flags=1])
        key:    Image key.
        file:   Image file.
                Defaults to the selected/focused file.
        size:   1 = Small image (16 x 16)
                2 = Large image (24 x 24)
                3 = Both [Default]
        flags:    (bit field)
          1 = Refresh the Toolbar when the replacement is done. [Default]
      Remarks:
        - The file can be larger than the image in which case it is
          automatically shrunk.
        - These changes are not permanent but last as long as the session.
      Examples:
        patchimage "flatview"; //replace small and large "flatview" image with the selected image file
        patchimage "flatview", "C:\Cactus.png" , 1;  //replace small "flatview" image with "Cactus.png"
        patchimage "flatview", "C:\Cactus.png" , 2;  //replace large "flatview" image with "Cactus.png"

v19.80.0115 - 2019-03-21 19:24
    + Patch Internal Images: Added a tweak that lets you completely customize 
      the toolbar images (and, in future, maybe even other internal images) in 
      an elegant, portable, and shareable way.
      You simply state a path where you have your beautiful image files. The 
      path can be specified relative to <xydata> (XYplorer's app data path). For 
      example:
        PatchImagesPath=Patch
      Now you need one image file for each image you want to patch (i.e., 
      replace the original image with). Each image file must have the image key 
      in the beginning of the filename, optionally separated by "-" from any 
      other parts of the name. For example, these files would both work for the 
      Branch View button (whose key happens to be "flatview"):
        flatview-Cherries-24 x 24.png
        flatview.png
      Now on startup XYplorer will scan this folder and patch all images for 
      which it finds a valid file with a valid image key. The image files are 
      processed in alphabetical ascending order so if you have more than one 
      file pointing to the same image then the last one wins.
      By default both size versions of the image are patched, small (16 x 16) 
      and large (24 x 24). But here's a way to specify which size you want to 
      patch: Append "1" for small, "2" for large to the key, separated by a 
      comma. For example:
        flatview,1-Cherries-16 x 16.png
        flatview,2-Cherries-24 x 24.png
    > Tip: To determine the image key of a button hold CTRL when you click 
      "Tools | Customize Toolbar...". The dialog's button lists now feature the 
      image keys in brackets.
    + Customize Toolbar | Options: Added option "Autosize Buttons". Tick it to 
      have the button size auto-adjust to the DPI of the screen.
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.

    + SC SaveThumb enhanced: Added argument "transparency" to specify the 
      transparency background and allow preserving transparency (cool!).
      Syntax: savethumb(file="<curitem>, thumbnail_file="*_thumb", _
                        widthbox, heightbox, format="jpg", border_width, flags, _
                        transparency=2)
        transparency:
         -1 = Preserve any transparency
              Note that with this option, border_width as well as the flags 1 
              (Drop Shadow) and 2 (Zoom To Fill) are ignored. So it's just 
              scaling up or down.
          0 = Neutral (here: the current window backcolor, e.g. of the tree, 
                       dark mode aware)
          1 = Grid
          2 = White [Default]
          3 = Black
      Examples (on focused list item):
        savethumb(, "*_t", 256, , "png", 7:=-1); //Preserve transparency
        savethumb(, "*_t", 256, , "png", 0, 0, 1);  //Grid
        savethumb(, "*_t", 256, , "png");           //White
        savethumb(, "*_t", 256, , "png", 0, 0, 3);  //Black
    * Toolbar | Enable Color Filters: New icon. Credits go to myself. :)
    ! Customize Toolbar | Options | Autosize Buttons: A little bug in 
      yesterday's implementation caused a fresh instance to start with small 
      icons regardless of the environment. Fixed.
    ! Hover Box: Transparency background "Neutral" did not work (wrong color) in 
      light mode. Fixed.

  %%% Toolbar: Now zooming the toolbar works with high-quality stretching even 
      at bizarre zoom factors like 1.1!
      Unfortunately there is still a little drawback: Patched images are lost 
      when zoomed. You only see them in the original size. I'm working on it...

v19.80.0118 - 2019-03-23 17:48
    * Patching Internal Images: Totally rewrote it again. Now the source image 
      is used in its original size for all sizes desired in the interface (e.g. 
      in the toolbar). Before, it was shrunk down to 24x24 and then stretched up 
      again if needed.
      - Note that now you can use a source image of any size you want (it's your 
        memory) and achieve high resolutions on large toolbar zooms, higher than 
        with the native images coming with the app (as embedded resource) which 
        are only 24x24 for the toolbar. Cool!
      - Note that due to the new internal handling all valid patch files are locked 
        as long as the patches are active. You cannot rename, move, or delete them.
    * SC PatchImage: Totally rewrote it. Removed the "size" argument. Changed 
      the "flags" argument to "switches". And now you can remove the patch by 
      passing "" as file.
      Syntax: patchimage(key, [file], [switches="r"])
        key:    Image key.
        file:   Image file.
                Defaults to the selected/focused file.
                If empty ("") the patch is removed and the original icon is used again.
        switches: lower case letters in any order
          r = Refresh the Toolbar when the replacement is done. [Default]
          s = Use this image for the small size (16x16).
      Remarks:
        - The file can be larger than the image in which case it is
          automatically shrunk.
        - A non-small patch is used for all sizes, unless there is a small patch 
          (which is then used for the small size). If there is only a small 
          patch then the original image is used for all non-small sizes.
        - These changes are not permanent but last as long as the session.
        - By passing "" as file you can as well remove patches that were loaded 
          via PatchImagesPath on startup.
      Examples:
        patchimage "flatview"; //replace "flatview" image with the selected image file, small and large
        patchimage "flatview", , "rs"; //replace "flatview" image with the selected image file, small only
        patchimage "flatview", "C:\Cactus.png";  //replace "flatview" image with "Cactus.png", small and large
        patchimage "flatview", "";  //remove patch
        patchimage "flatview", "", "rs";  //remove small patch
    * Tweak PatchImagesPath: Changed the syntax.
      The separator between key and the rest of the filename is now ".", not "-" 
      anymore. Examples:
        flatview.Cherries-24 x 24.png
        flatview,s.SmallCherries-16 x 16.png  (= special version for 16x16)
        flatview.png
        redo-.png                             (= disabled Redo button)    
      - Note that due to the new internal handling all valid patch files are locked 
        as long as the patches are active. You cannot rename, move, or delete them.
    ! Toolbar: Patches got lost when zooming. Fixed.
    ! Toolbar: Various small arrows were not correctly drawn at all zooms. Fixed.
    ! Toolbar: On higher zooms there were artifacts (pixel dirt) at the borders 
      of the images. These could be much reduced, though not totally. A complete 
      fix is possible but needs more work.
    ! Toolbar: Scrolling a zoomed toolbar quickly could leave pixel dirt at the 
      bottom part. Fixed.

    * SC PatchImage enhanced: Now the "switches" argument allows you to set the 
      large image only.
      Syntax: patchimage(key, [file], [switches="r"])
        key:    Image key.
        file:   Image file.
                Defaults to the selected/focused file.
                If empty ("") the patch is removed and the original icon is used again.
        switches: lower case letters in any order
          r = Refresh the Toolbar when the replacement is done. [Default]
          s = Use this image for the small size (16x16).
          l = Use this image for the larger sizes (24x24 and higher).
          Note: If both "s" and "l" are missing then then both small and large 
                size are set.
      Examples (all using the selected image file):
        patchimage "flatview";            //set small and large patch
        patchimage "flatview", , "rsl";   //set small and large patch
        patchimage "flatview", , "rs";    //set small patch only
        patchimage "flatview", , "rl";    //set large patch only
        patchimage "flatview", "";        //remove small and large patch
        patchimage "flatview", "", "rsl"; //remove small and large patch
        patchimage "flatview", "", "rs";  //remove small patch only
        patchimage "flatview", "", "rl";  //remove large patch only
    * Tweak PatchImagesPath: The changes above also affect the file name syntax 
      relevant for the tweak:
        flatview.Cherries-24 x 24.png     //set small and large patch
        flatview,sl.Cherries-24 x 24.png  //set small and large patch
        flatview,s.Cherries-24 x 24.png   //set small patch only
        flatview,l.Cherries-24 x 24.png   //set large patch only

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.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v19.80.0120 - 2019-03-25 18:44
    + Flexible Status Bar: The right-most section of the Status Bar now 
      auto-adjusts its left position to show as much as possible of its 
      contents. Pretty cool if you have a smaller screen.
      Nothing to do for you, it just works.
    ! Dropping Messages: The sent date of sent Outlook messages was not 
      correctly determined. Fixed.
