The recycle bin is a great thing!
I miss the robust copy and container feature from x2 as well. Thats the only thing...
That might be a pro for TC as well. I like to pause the copying or moving process or make queues.

Hi and thanks! :D
Not totally sure what you mean be the other stuff but when I look at the roadmap I guess some of it will come this year... :wink:

By container feature I might think about what you call 'drop stack'. The roadmap looks great to me :)
Thanks in advance!
Everything a power-user needs ;)

Code: Select all

v8.80.0101 - 2010-02-05 12:18
    + Added Portable Tabs. With Portable Tabs enabled the locations of
      tabs are stored relative to app path (in the pane.ini files) IF
      app path is on a removable drive.
      Portable Tabs are useful only when you run XYplorer from a USB
      drive; it renders these tabs pointing to locations on app drive
      independent from the drive letter assigned by the host system.
      Currently available only as a tweak, let's see how it works out:
        [Settings]
        PortableTabs=1


I simply love the concept, once pen drive is my home and always had problem with several folders being opened on various computers.
Thanks, Donald!
-let's see how it works out soon... :D

Code: Select all

v8.80.0103 - 2010-02-06 18:23
    + Toolbar: Added button "Find by Tag". Gives you one-click access to
      global tag-wise searches. For example, to search all local drives
      for items tagged "Blue" simply click "Blue" from the button's
      arrow menu. Should take a split second...


Code: Select all

v8.80.0102 - 2010-02-05 20:17
    % Fast Tag Search: Further speed improvements!


Code: Select all

v8.80.0101 - 2010-02-05 12:18
  %%% Fast Tag Search: New algorithm gets tag and comment search up to
      warp speed, especially searches over large areas! Now you can
      actually search whole drives or even MyComputer for "tag:blue" and
      get results almost immediately. A definite k-i-l-l-e-r feature!


Caching results? Long indexing times? Can't find your favorites???
-Two in a row, this is going to be FUN!!!
Lightning speed - like a Ballistics race over LAN!!!
Thanks much, Don! This is definitely a KILLER feature!

v8.80.0314 - 2010-02-19 14:48
    + Menu Panes: Added command "Backup to Other Pane". Does what it
      claims to do. Default KS: Ctrl+Shift+F6.
    * Backup operations: No more "Done" message box when the operation is done. The status bar message has been pimped up to make up for it.


...now, I eagerly wait for the long-time promised Time Machine feature, so I can turn back 8 years in the past and start backing up stuff in the coolest manner possible... lol

THANKS MUCH again, Don!

-No more "Done" message dialog implies easy use of "Backup" function along with (another astounding feature!) scripts. Niiiiiiiice... :mrgreen:

Yo, there you said it! This has always been my main development goal! XYplorer is a machine to reduce screen time. = )


XYplorer in fact is saving me lots of time plus aiding in reduction of stress on my injured arm when dealing with tons of files - there's still room for improvement, granted, but at least I can EXPECT that some time in the future X or Y features (sorry for the bad joke... lol) can come into play making it a valuable tool not only for computing life - but for having a better quality of Life!

So - thanks, Donald! This is not only about technology, and I believe this is what technology should be all about!

Waited a very long time (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2810&start=30#p26702) for the day I would post this message about the fix of copy operations on Windows Vista/7
So Thank You for implementing XYcopy :)

Queued File Operations

Thanks.

Absolutely stellar work, this was the sole reason I evaluated XYplorer against Servant Salamander (which I found to be too buggy).

Also named filters, brilliant. Much more intuitive, customizable, and structured than search-templates.

I'm a programmer myself, and I'm in awe of your dedication.

One thing that I'd like to briefly bring up, though:
I'd like to recommend XYplorer to people that I know, but who are not as technically skilled.
I find myself reluctant to do so, because I fear that it might be wasted on them, as they may feel overwhelmed by the options offered by XYplorer.
I would therefore suggest a "beginners" interface to XYplorer, where people can become accustomed to it, and move on to a more advanced interface.

Just my two cents. :)

This is where Config>Features might be of some use...as you can disable some of the more advanced items.
Still spending WAY TOO much time here! But it's such a pleasure helping XY be a treasure!
(XP on laptop with touchpad and thus NO mouse!) Using latest beta vers when possible.

Two recently added features that i find incredible useful:

+++ Tree: Added new special folder <User> (the actual caption depends
on the current user name). Points to the current user's profile
folder (CSIDL_PROFILE).


and
+++ Text Preview. One-click instant preview for more than 50 different
text file formats. And you can freely add extensions to the list
of supported formats.
+++ Preview. Now you can easily add any number of new extensions to
all preview types (Text, Images, Fonts, Office, Web) right in the
configuration dialog.


Thanks, Don

! Quick File View, Text Preview, Raw View: Error "The process cannot
access the file because it is being used by another process."
(ERROR_SHARING_VIOLATION) when trying to view files that are
already opened by certain other applications. Fixed.


Great!

Still using 8.80.xxxx, and I cannot miss the case to mention that I last started it March 01 this year, and it still works without a glitch, almost 5 months of uptime with heavy daily use. I have forgotten why I had to restart it back then because the computer has even longer current uptime but I think this adds to the fact XY is the best file management program to date, for Windows. And as it seems, it gets even better.
Thanks!
