    + Tags | Tags: Added command "Update Tag List": Click it to update the tag 
      list to the tags currently used in the tags database (usually tag.dat).
      Note: The same command has been available in the right-click menu of the 
      Toolbar Tags Buttons since v14.30.0404 - 2014-08-17 17:01.
    + Toolbar | Tags Buttons: Now the number of tags in the dropdown menu is 
      tweakable. The (new) factory default is 24, but you can set it to any 
      value >= 0, for example:
        TagMaxTagsInMenu=30
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

Code: Select all

v21.40.0128 - 2021-01-14 18:06
    + Custom Columns: Added variable <cc_overlay>. Returns the overlay index of 
      the item's icon. 
      Within e.g. Dropbox or Google Drive folders icon overlays may be used to 
      reflect the sync state of an item. This new variable returns the index 
      number of the overlay. Useless by itself, but it allows you to *sort* the 
      list by this property, or to search items by this property.
      Usage: In a Custom Column of Type "Script" use this line in the Script 
      field:
        return <cc_overlay>;
      To find all items with a value 7 use either of these search patterns if 
      your Custom Column is #48 and called "Overlay Index":
        cc48:7
        Overlay Index:7
      Note that it also works when "Configuration | General | Refresh, Icons, 
      History | Icons | Show icon overlays" is OFF.
    + Custom Event Actions: Now you can temporarily turn off all "Changing 
      Locations" CEAs for this session (= not remembered across sessions) using 
      the scripting command tweak():
        tweak("SkipBrowseEvents", "");  //toggle
        tweak("SkipBrowseEvents", 1);   //set
        tweak("SkipBrowseEvents", 0);   //unset
        echo tweak("SkipBrowseEvents"); //get

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

Direct Download: https://www.xyplorer.com/download/xyplorer_full.zip
Download Page: https://www.xyplorer.com/download.php
Release Notes: https://www.xyplorer.com/release.php

Code: Select all

v21.50.0000 - 2021-01-15 18:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Hover Box Scrolling. Now you can keyboard-scroll and wheel-scroll the 
      Folder Contents Preview, the Zip Contents Preview, and the Text Preview. 
      You won't get this degree of interface coolness anywhere else.
  +++ Hover Box for Tabs. Now you can show a Hover Box with Folder Contents 
      Preview for any tab simply by hovering the tab header icon. Saves you a 
      click if you just want to quickly see what's in the tab, or what has 
      recently arrived in the tab. Even works for Paper Folders.
  +++ Custom Copy with Free Space Status. Now the progress dialog shows the 
      amount of used and free space on the target drive in real time, 
      graphically and in numbers. Just gives you that soothing feeling that 
      comes from knowing the consequences of your actions.
  +++ Shorten Filenames. Now you can shorten the names of a whole bunch of files 
      by cutting off a certain number of characters from the right end of the 
      base name.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of The Hi-Jivers.

v21.50.0001 - 2021-01-16 14:18
    + Catalog: Now the right-click menu command "Go to in new background tab" 
      also works with files. The containing folder will be opened as new 
      background tab and the file will be preselected in that tab.
    * Hover Box Scrolling: From now on wheel and keys are eaten by the box only 
      if it is showing text or folder contents, i.e. contents that *can* have a 
      scrollbar. Note that it does not matter if there actually *is* a scrollbar 
      because IMO that condition would be too complex to develop a reliable 
      motor memory for these situations.
    ! Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Caption lines: Since v21.40.0126 - 
      2021-01-13 17:13 the value increased by one with every OK-ing the config. 
      Fixed.

    + Hover Box Scrolling: Now the wheel can scale images. Up = bigger, Down = 
      smaller (10 pixels per notch). Same functionality as Numpad Add and 
      Subtract. Hold SHIFT to double the impact. Cool!
    + Hover Box Scrolling: Now it honors wheel acceleration, i.e. you can scroll 
      much faster by wheeling faster. Cool!
    ! Hover Box: Since 20210105 the DEL key did not work anymore when the Hover 
      Box was up. Fixed.

v21.50.0003 - 2021-01-17 15:16
    + Rename Special | Batch Rename: Now /cut can keep a certain number of 
      characters at the right end of the base:
      Syntax: /cut [start,]length[,keep]
      Remarks:  You must state "start" as well if you want to use "keep".
      Examples:
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        /cut 1,10,4       keep the last 4 characters, take the first 10 characters
        /cut 3,10,4       keep the last 4 characters, take 10 characters beginning at pos 3
        /cut 1,-1000,4    keep the last 4 characters
        /cut 1000,0,4     keep the last 4 characters
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      The last two apply some syntactic abuse that just works well.
    ! Hover Box for Tabs: Did not work for iconized tabs. Fixed.
    ! Hover Box for Tabs: Did not work for tabs pointing to soft paths 
      (<xydata>, %temp%, etc). Fixed.
    ! Hover Box Scrolling: Could not wheel-scale PDFs. Fixed.

v21.50.0004 - 2021-01-18 10:42
    + Hover Box | Text: While the Hover Box is showing a text or an image, ie 
      contents that are generally scrollable or scalable, you now can cycle the 
      scrollability/scalability by pressing the "R" key (think "roll").
        Internal value    Function
          0               Scrolling and scaling disabled
          1               Scrolling texts enabled
          2               Scaling images enabled
          3               Scrolling texts and scaling images enabled
      - Remembered across sessions. Factory default is 3 (= all enabled).
      - If the scrollability/scalability is disabled then the navigation keys 
        (Up, Down, PageUp, PageDown, Home, End) and the mouse wheel are not 
        eaten by the box but passed through to the focused control.
      - Scalability means scalability by wheel. If the scalability is OFF then 
        images still can be scaled by Numpad Add and Numpad Subtract.
    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box | Show Hover Box 
      | Select Context...: Now it pops for "Tabs" even if "Folders" is off in 
      "Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box | Show Hover Box 
      | Select Item Types...".

    + SC popupcontextmenu enhanced. Now you can pop a basic menu without any shell 
      extensions (which is usually much faster).
      Syntax: popupcontextmenu [item], [bitness], [flags]
        flags: (bit field)
          1 = Hide shell extensions.
      Remarks:
        - The effect is identical to ticking "Configuration | General | Menus, 
          Mouse, Usability | Context Menus | Hide shell extensions from shell 
          context menu".
      Examples:
        popupcontextmenu , , 1; //pop a basic menu for selected items
        popupcontextmenu 2:=1;  //the same, using the "numbered arguments" syntax
      This script in CEA "Left-click on status bar" will pop a basic menu on 
      left-clicking the first section of the status bar:
        if (<CEA_ClickedItem> == 1) {popupcontextmenu 2:=1;}

v21.50.0102 - 2021-01-20 21:03
  +++ Custom Event Actions: Added a new section "Clicking on Line Numbers" with 
      four events (D/L/M/R-click) and a number of interesting actions. 
      Obviously, these events are only available in the Details View (and 
      Details with Thumbnails), which is the only view with line numbers.
      Remarks:
      - "Line Numbers column" here means the area where there are numbers (= 
        items). In shorter lists you will have a numberless area at the bottom 
        which is just treated as white space here.
      - The variables <CEA_ClickedItem> and <CEA_ClickedItems> are available to 
        scripts triggered by "Run script".
      Remarks on the events:
      - Left-click: Note that you get a 200ms delay before the action is 
        triggered because we have to wait for a possible double-click before 
        firing the left-click event.
      Remarks on the actions:
      - None: Don't do anything.
      - Like white: Handle as just click on white.
      - Sticky selection: Click on line number toggles list item selection.
        With "Sticky selection" activated you cannot start a lasso selection 
        from the Line Numbers column anymore with that button.
      - Clicked item context menu: Show a *basic* (= no shell extensions) shell 
        context menu for the clicked item. That menu pops faster than the normal 
        shell context menu.
        Note that the clicked item is not selected, and any other selections are 
        not removed.
      - Selected item(s) context menu: Show a *basic* (= no shell extensions) shell 
        context menu for the currently selected items (no matter where you 
        click). That menu pops faster than the normal shell context menu.
    - Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability | Mouse | Line number 
      selection: Removed that option. It's fully replaced by CEA "Clicking on 
      Line Numbers > L/M/R-click > Sticky selection".
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

        like when right-clicking the names directly).
        On the other clicks only the clicked item is selected (any other 
        selections are removed) and the menu is shown for that item.

        shell context menu for the currently selected items (no matter where you 
        click). That menu pops faster than the normal shell context menu.
        No selections are added or removed no matter where you click.
