Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v20.10.0014 - 2019-06-13 19:00
    + Edit | Paste Special: Added command "Restore Previous Clipboard". The 
      previous state of the clipboard is now automatically stored whenever the 
      clipboard changes, and you can toggle the current and the previous state 
      by using the new command.
      Note that when the clipboard is empty then "Restore Previous Clipboard" 
      will toggle the two previous non-empty states.
    * SC ClipStore:
      - Now there are only 2 states, now and before. KISS. Before, there were 4 
        states.
      - Now "0" works as an alternative to "r".
        Note: Since "Restore Previous Clipboard" with auto-storage is 
        implemented it's pretty pointless to use this argument while something 
        is in the clipboard (since it would just restore clipboard to itself). 
        It only makes sense if clipboard is empty.
      - Well, the whole command is not that useful anymore since we have 
        "Restore Previous Clipboard". Might just as well remove it...
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

v20.10.0017 - 2019-06-14 20:10
    * Edit | Paste Special | Restore Previous Clipboard: Now new clipboard 
      contents are only auto-stored while XYplorer's main window is in the 
      foreground. Advantages:
      - Things that were put to the clipboard by XYplorer are protected and can 
        be restored, regardless what other apps might do when XYplorer is in the 
        background.
      - XYplorer is not busy eating CPU cycles only because other apps shuffle 
        stuff through the clipboard.
    + Custom File Icons: Now you can append a comment to a definition, separated 
      by //. Any spaces before the comment separator are trimmed off.
      Example:
        *.txt>Houellebecq.ico //comment
    + Custom File Icons: Now you can define custom icons that are used only if 
      there is no embedded specific icon.
      Simply use the switch /d (think "default"), for example:
        *.exe /d>NiceGenericExe.ico //only for EXEs without embedded specific icon

    + Toolbar | Edit Clipboard, Paste: Now you can peek into the previous 
      clipboard contents by holding SHIFT while you hover the button.
      You can even toggle past and present while the tooltip it shown. Don't do 
      it too often too fast or Windows may ask you if you want to enable a 
      Sticky Keys feature.

    + Dark Mode: Now the tweak "DarkAdaptive" also controls the Highlight colors 
      in the Tree (Favorites | Set Highlight Color...).
    * Address Bar: The (later hard-coded) tweak ABAutoWildcards was not a good 
      idea and has been removed. Now if you want wildcard matching of locations 
      you have to pass at least one * (asterisk) in the path.
    ! SC obfuscate: Popup text boxes were obfuscated on obfuscation level 1. 
      That should not be the case. Fixed.
    ! Name Collision on Rename: The suffix option treated folders with dots in 
      the name as if they had extensions (which folders by definition never 
      have). Fixed.

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

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

Code: Select all

v20.20.0000 - 2019-06-18 18:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Append to Clipboard. The new Append command allows you to append files to 
      the files that are currently in the clipboard. Hunt and collect.
  +++ Clipboard Peek. Now the "Edit Clipboard" button provides a real-time 
      indication of the current clipboard contents, so you always know whether 
      there is something in the clipboard and of what kind it (text, image, 
      files). The clipboard is no black box anymore.
  +++ Restore Previous Clipboard. Ever accidentally lost some valuable clipboard 
      contents? Argh! Relax. The previous state of the clipboard is now 
      automatically stored whenever the clipboard changes, and you can toggle 
      the current and the previous state by using the new Restore Previous 
      Clipboard command.
  +++ Nested Hamburger. Now the Hamburger menu in the Breadcrumb Bar ("Recently 
      in the Breadcrumb Bar I asked for the Hamburger menu...") supports submenus.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of The Last Internationale.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v20.20.0001 - 2019-06-19 21:06
    + SC get got a new named argument "list_history" to return the history of 
      the current pane, or of a particular tab of the current pane.
      Syntax: get("list_history", [separator=CRLF], [tab_index])
        separator:    String to place between items.
                      Defaults to CRLF (line feed).
        tab_index:    Tab index (first tab = 0) for a tab-specific history.
                      If missing then the global history of the pane is returned.                   
        return:       List of historical locations (identical to menu Go | History), 
                      ordered in backward chronology from latest to earliest.
                      The current position in history is ignored.
      Examples:
        text get("list_history");       //global history of the current pane
        text get("list_history", , 1);  //history of the 2nd tab of the current pane
    * Restore Previous Clipboard: When you restore the previous clipboard and 
      the current clipboard had not been stored because XYplorer was not in the 
      foreground then the current clipboard is stored now, right before the 
      previous clipboard is restored. That way you can go back to it on the next 
      Restore Previous Clipboard. Sounds complicated but is useful.
    ! Previous Clipboard Peek: If there were files the number was falsely shown 
      as "0" (zero) in the tooltip although the files were correctly listed. 
      Fixed.

    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: Wait
      Action: Yields execution for a specified time so that the operating system 
              can process other events.
      Syntax: wait [msecs]
        msecs:  Number of milliseconds to wait.
                Allowed values: 0 to 2147483647 (= 0x7fffffff = ~ 25 days)
      Examples:
        wait;       //minimum yield: let the OS do one thing
        wait 2000;  //let the OS do its things for 2 seconds (2000 ms)
        wait 60000; //wait a minute
        wait 1000; echo "Hi!"; //show message after 1 second
      Remark:
        This command exists for a long time but had not been officially 
        documented yet. I waited about 315569260000 ms.
    * Tabs: The tooltip of named tabs now shows the path first, and then the 
      name in the 2nd line. That way you get the interesting info first.
