Download the latest XYplorer BETA version (v6.30.0056, 08-oct-2007).
Choose one: (1) Install Package, (2) No-Install Package (each < 1 MB).

Code: Select all

v6.30.0056 - 2007-10-08 13:17
  +++ Added new license "Standard License". Contrary to the "Lifetime 
      License" this new license is limited to "one full major version 
      cycle". For example: When you purchase a "Standard License" for 
      version 6.40 it will be valid for all versions below version 7.40. 
      It will not be valid anymore for version 7.40 and higher.
      Based on the stats of the last years, this means you get roughly 
      one year of updates, which includes about 5-10 official releases 
      and 200 BETA releases.
      This license will be available from 2007-10-10 onwards.
    + Extended improved support for dropping from archives to Tree and 
      Catalog as drop targets.
    + Menu Tools | Customize Toolbar: added Ctrl+Shift+F9 as default KS.
    * Now, the last used INI-file (LastIni key in XYplorer.ini) is only 
      used on startup when it exists, else the default INI-file 
      (XYplorer.ini) is used.
    ! List: when resizing an X-scrolled list in view "List" from state
      maximized to normal, parts of the display were not updated depending 
      on the X-scroll position. Fixed.
    ! A user somehow managed to lose the ESC key as shortcut for "Stop". 
      No idea how he did it (unless he manually fooled around with 
      ks.dat...), but from now on the app ensures on startup that the 
      ESC key is where it should be.
    ! Hotlist could get confused by non-existing folders in history. 
      Fixed.

v6.40.0000 - 2007-10-10 11:11
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main changes since last release:
  +++ New GUI. Ux theme visual styles are now (optionally) applied to 
      all interface elements.
  +++ Major re-design of the configuration dialog.
  +++ Added a new license type, the "Standard License", which costs only 
      half of the big "Lifetime License".
  +++ Now you can drag-drop item onto *.BAT and *.CMD files. Of course, 
      this works also with Catalog items as drop targets.
  +++ Finally complete support for dropping from archives of all types.
  +++ Now you have "Tips of the day" at your finger tips (Shift+F1). And 
      more: you can easily add and manage your own tips (in your own 
      language if you want)!
  +++ Support for NTFS junctions, including configurable color coding to 
      make them visually stand out.
  +++ The Backup file operation now preserves all three dates (modified, 
      created, accessed) in copied files and folders.
  +++ The New Items interface now supports date variables, just another 
      revolutionary time-saver.
  +++ Enhanced compatibility with Kontrast#1 (etc.) color schemes for 
      visually impaired.
  +++ File Info Tips now display "Version Information" for all files 
      that have one.
  +++ Media Preview: added support for the file extension DIVX (DivX 
      Movie).

Code: Select all

v6.40.0001 - 2007-10-13 14:00
    + List: Now you can paste-file-into-file via the target file's shell 
      context menu. For example, copy some file to clipboard, then right-
      click a ZIP-archive. You should see an item "Paste" in the context 
      menu if the associated archiver can handle this. Select this "Paste" 
      and the file in the clipboard will be added to the ZIP archive. Most 
      EXE files will support this as well. What happens on paste is 
      basically the same that would happen on a drop onto these files.
    * Catalog context menu: now the "Paste" command is disabled when the 
      current item is not a folder.
    - Removed: Close tab on double click.
      (It had been added v4.20.0060 - 2005-11-23 12:01)
    + Now double click on tab header toggles its Locked state.
    + Report: Now there's the Choose Printer dialog. However, printing 
      directly from XYplorer is not recommended when you expect more 
      than 1 pages output. In that case you better send the report to 
      the clipboard and paste it into some text editor that offers you a 
      much more controlled printing experience.
    * Toolbar: button "Views" now has a right-click menu (the same that 
      is popped by left-clicking the button).
    * Toolbar: button "List Management" now has a right-click menu (the 
      same that is popped by left-clicking the button).
    + Toolbar: when opening the Customize Toolbar dialog via a toolbar 
      button right-click menu, now the clicked button is preselected in 
      the "Actual buttons" list.
    + Tree highlighting and Favorites: XY got smart. Now when a folder 
      is renamed or moved, it's Highlight, Boxed Branch, or Favorites 
      state is preserved/taken with it.
    ! Tip of the Day: internal links to other tips did not work in all 
      systems. Changed something that might fix it.
    ! Tip of the Day: did not handle ":" (colons) in term text 
      correctly. Fixed.
    + Tip of the Day: now terms with tooltips can have captions that are 
      different from the target by using the {:caption|target} syntax.
      For example {:mode|list modes} will print "mode" but show the 
      tooltip of term ":List Modes:".
    ! Little painting quirk in tree lead to darker icon shadows (huh!) 
      shortly after the vertical scrollbar appeared or disappeared.
      Reason: the icons were drawn twice. Fixed.

        - Nothing
        - Toggle Locked State
        - Close Tab

    + Started implementing user-defined commands (UDCs). They have their 
      own top menu named "User". As an appetizer I hard-coded one UDC of 
      the type "Go To". You may already assign a KS to it (and only then 
      you'll see the menu caption -- work in progress).
      There will be about a dozen other types soon... plus, of course, 
      the interface to manage them yourself.
    + Configuration | Tabs: added two more options to "On dbl-click":
        - Open New Tab
        - Rename Tab
    * Configuration: had to rephrase some labels to make them shorter. 
      This was necessary to support somewhat larger fonts settings as 
      are typical for larger monitors.
      Advanced:
        - Suspend refres&h during file operations
        > No refres&h during file operations
        - Natural nu&meric sort order (XP/Vista only)
        > Natural nu&meric sort order (XP/Vista)
      Preview:
        - &Zoom smaller originals to fit Image/Video preview area
        > &Zoom smaller originals to fit preview area
    ! Tip of the Day: internal links to other tips did not work in all

v6.40.0010 - 2007-10-20 21:57
  +++ Another milestone on the long and winding road to superior 
      productivity and file management fun: User-Defined Commands (UDC)!
      
      Contrary to my original plans (then called "Scriptable Hotkeys") I 
      did not implement them key-based but menu-based. It took me half a 
      year to make up my mind about this, but it was worth every second 
      of it. What you get now is 100% full control, plus total visual 
      feedback, full mouse and key access, and the possibility to have 
      user-defined commands *without* an assigned keyboard shortcut (which 
      was one of the inherent drawbacks of the key-based approach). Of 
      course, the real power of UDCs start when you *do* assign KSs to 
      them... :)
      
      You find a new top menu called "User", containing a link to 
      the interface where you manage your commands, and three command 
      categories (I'll soon add more, don't worry...). I attempted to 
      make it as intuitive as possible. Step by step:
        - Open the Manage Commands interface
        - Select a Category
        - Press "New"
        - Enter the "Argument": that's the critical piece of data. It's 
          where you specify the object of the Action. Usually it will be 
          a file or folder, so there's a Browse button to the right of 
          the edit field.
        - Optionally enter the Caption (for the menu item). If left 
          empty, the Argument will be used for the caption.
        - Press Apply to add your edited command to the Commands list.
        - Repeat for all UDCs you need.
        - Finally press OK to apply your changes to the current session 
          of XYplorer. The new menus will be generated in a blink. Open 
          the User menu and see yourself...
        - Now you can open CKS and assign KSs to your new UDCs.
        - Of course, as always in XY, the UDCs will be saved to file on 
          exit unless otherwise wanted. This file is called udc.dat.
      
      Further remarks:
      - There's virtually no limit to the number of commands, although, 
        being menu-based and having a finite number of keys on your board 
        you will hit a usability wall at some point.
      - The files udc.dat and ks.dat are independent from each other 
        which has obvious advantages: e.g., you can easily switch and 
        share data sets between parallel XY instances or XY users.
        Just keep in mind one thing: the keyboard shortcuts in ks.dat 
        identify functions by numbers and will trigger them without 
        asking questions. So, if you throw a udc.dat together with a 
        ks.dat that origin from different XY instances, the UDC-
        referring keyboard shortcuts will, of course, trigger whatever 
        they find in that udc.dat. So, when loading a new udc.dat or a 
        new ks.dat, quickly have a look at your "User" menu and see how 
        the KS<->UDC situation has changed.
      - I took the chance to open the door to one of the next big 
        XY features: scriptability! Internally the UDCs are already 
        processed as scripts.
      
    % Number formatting faster. You won't note it with today's hardware 
      speed but believe me, it is faster. :)
    + Added accelerators to menus that are listing tabs. Here's an 
      example ("&" marks next char as accelerators; "&&" stands for "&" 
      char that's not marking an accelerator):
        0&1 - Desktop
        0&2 - Desktop\getclipboard && files
        0&3 - C:\
        0&4 - D:\Download

v6.40.0012 - 2007-10-21 14:44
    + Toolbar: added button "Save Settings". Saves all settings (*.ini 
      and *.dat files), and has a context menu that's identical to the 
      menu File | Settings. 
    + Forgot to mention: User | Manage Commands has a default KS: 
      Ctrl+Alt+F9. As always with new KS, it has to be manually 
      assigned: open CKS, go to the command in question, press 
      "Default" and then "Assign".
    * Menu File: Reorganized and enlarged the "Configuration File" 
      submenu. I decided that the term "Configuration (file)" from now 
      on applies to the current *.ini file proper, whereas the term 
      "Settings (files)" applies to all other configurable data, as are 
      Catalog, UDC, KS, and Cached Servers -- (which are all saved in 
      *.dat files). Accordingly I renamed the menu "Configuration File" 
      to "Settings". Within the now called Settings menu, I added 
      commands to individually save all types of settings to the 
      respective *.dat files.      
    * Changed main menu order: moved User to the left of Tools.
    ! Would lose any fresh Catalog/UDC/KS/Server settings, when loading 
      a new configuration without manually saving the current settings 
      before. Fixed. Now it's auto-saved *IF* "Save Settings on Exit" is 
      true.
    ! KSs containing Ctrl+Alt-combinations did not trigger an assigned 
      function when pressed inside Edit boxes. And for a reason: some 
      Ctrl+Alt+[Key] yield a printable character, so I wanted to ensure 
      that these characters get printed to the edit field. However, I 
      did this too generously. Now, most such KS, e.g. Ctrl+Alt+C 
      (Focus Catalog), *will* work (= trigger functions if assigned) in 
      edit boxes, because (at least on my keyboard) they do not yield a 
      printable character. Alles klar?
    ! If a non-empty previewed file was auto-raw-viewed, and the next to 
      be previewed file was empty, the previous raw view would stick 
      visible instead of showing the "File is empty" message. Fixed.
    ! Crash on startup minimized to tray with Raw View active and 
      certain other circumstances. Fixed.

    + Toolbar: added button "Manage Commands". Opens the Manage UDC 
      dialog, and has a context menu that allows you to directly jump to 
      managing a particular command category (analog to the 
      Configuration button's context menu).
      I chose an icon that suggests the Zen-ness of the feature ...:)
    % Because the way UDC are done now (namely not as "Scriptable 
      Hotkeys"), I could reorganize the way KS are done (which had been 
      designed with "Scriptable Hotkeys" already in mind). Effects: 
      Faster processing, less memory usage, 75% smaller ks.dat file.
      Don't worry, I wrote backward code to keep your custom key 
      assigments alive.
    ! Fixed various glitches with UDCs.

:!: This UDC thing is still just in the play-around-state! So do not put too much effort in it now. This new version will (again!) reset your udc.dat to nothing, because I had to change the internal structure a little..

Code: Select all

v6.40.0016 - 2007-10-24 12:41
    + UDC: added three more command categories:
      - Move To
      - Copy To
      - Backup To
      Note that relative paths and date variables are supported. For 
      example, set the Argument of Copy To to "<dyyyy-mm-dd>" to copy 
      the selected files to a subfolder of the current path named 
      according to the current date (today: "2007-10-24"), and auto-
      created if not yet existing. Quite handy...
    + UDC | Open With: added total portability to the Application 
      argument. Now you can specify relative paths: they will be resolved 
      relative to XYplorer's path.
      The same is true for Catalog | Open Selected List Item(s): also 
      here the application can now be specified relative to XYplorer's 
      path.
    + UDC dialog: added the capability to handle options/parameters 
      modifying the Action. As a first example, the Open With commands 
      now give you the following choice:
      - Pass all the items to the same instance of the application.
      - Pass each of the items to its own instance of the application.
      The first option (same instance) has never been before in XY, so 
      this is also a new feature. Of course, the receiving application 
      must be able to handle multiple arguments in the command string. 
      Only you can find out.
      NOTE: to handle this new capability, the structure of udc.dat had 
      to be changed once again, so your old UDC data will be lost after 
      this upgrade!
    + UDC dialog: added path name auto-completion (aka "autosuggest 
      list") to the Argument edit field.
    + UDC dialog: now the KS (if any) are displayed in the Commands list.
    + UDC dialog: press INS to add new command.
    * Toolbar: new icon for button "Manage Commands". I did not want to 
      make XY look like an esoteric bookshop... ;)

Code: Select all

v6.40.0019 - 2007-10-25 13:00
  +++ Menu Edit | Move/Copy/Backup To now work from Catalog! Also the 
      relevant KS are now active if the focus is on Catalog, i.e. the KS 
      scope has been enlarged.
      The smart part: If a Catalog Item is selected the item is taken, 
      if a Catalog Category is selected, *all* items (that are pointing 
      to copyable file system units) inside the Category are taken. 
      NOTE: !!! Try with care, it's still *very* fresh !!!
      Note that the combination Backup-To-from-Catalog does not work yet 
      (you'll get a message box), because I don't know yet how to handle 
      the completely distributed source locations that are possible 
      within a Catalog Category. How much of the source path should I 
      recreate in the destination...?
      Note further that the combination Move-To-from-Catalog is probably 
      not very useful since after it the Catalog items will point into 
      nothingness... I'll probably take that out... what do you think?
    * UDC | Open With. Now handling of items is done smarter so that 
      more items can be passed to a single instance of the opening 
      application before the 2KB limit for command lines is reached.    
      This new way, however, works only in Browse mode, where it is 
      guaranteed that all files reside in the same location (which then 
      is passed as the default look up path.
    + Configuration: added new section called "Startup & Exit".
    + Configuration: added new option "Open new instance always" that 
      lets you control whether the app always creates a new instance or 
      re-uses an already running previous instance. The latter had been 
      the hard-coded default up to now.
    * When renaming a file that's being previewed, the preview has to be 
      closed before the rename can take place (else the file would be 
      locked). Now, I allow 100 msec extra time for the closing of the 
      preview. That should fix issues some users had with renaming 
      previewed DOC and PDF files.
    * Before, I slashed (put a backslash to the end) environment paths. 
      So, e.g.
        %programfiles%\XYplorer\
          was resolved to
        C:\Program Files\\XYplorer\
      The double slash, of course, creates a problem. Now, I changed 
      this (no more slashing). So %programfiles%\XYplorer\ now will work 
      in the address bar as expected.
    + Preview: added "Preview Now" button to the Preview tab, visible if 
      "File type excluded from preview in configuration." Click it to 
      immediately preview the focused file.
    * Preview: now, if "File type excluded from preview in 
      configuration.", a single call of menu File | Preview 
      (Ctrl+Q) or a single press of the "Preview" TB button (although it 
      is in pressed state!) will suffice to actually preview the focused 
      file. Before you needed two calls/presses.
      Of course, you can as well press the new "Preview Now" button.
    ! List: Scrolling by wheel did 6 lines (dep on your mouse settings) 
      even if only 3 lines were visible per page (view port), for example 
      in a Thumbnails view. Now scrolling by wheel does maximally one 
      page, so that no lines are skipped.

Re: Here's the new BETA

Post by admin » 26 Oct 2007 13:17

Download the latest XYplorer BETA version (v6.40.0020, 26-oct-2007).
Choose one: (1) Install Package, (2) No-Install Package (each < 1 MB).

Code: Select all

v6.40.0020 - 2007-10-26 13:16
    + Menu Edit | Backup To: Now the Catalog (Items and Categories) is 
      supported as source for backup operations.
      To cope with distributed source items, the paths of the items are 
      *fully* recreated in the target folder, including the drive letter 
      (resp. server name). For example, if the selected Catalog Category 
      contains these items...
        - C:\project\code\
        - D:\www\project\code\
        - \\cary\grant\hat\black.ico
        - \\cary\grant\suit\black.ico
      ... and you backup them today to E:\Backup\<dyyyy-mm-dd>, then the 
      resulting copies will be:
        - E:\Backup\2007-10-26\C\project\code\
        - E:\Backup\2007-10-26\D\www\project\code\
        - E:\Backup\2007-10-26\cary\grant\hat\black.ico
        - E:\Backup\2007-10-26\cary\grant\suit\black.ico
      This is the only way to guarantee that no merging/overwriting of 
      homonymous items happens. And by the way, it's also a nice way to 
      tell you quickly and exactly where a backup came from.
      Of course, you have to take care with huge path names, else you 
      will hit the 260 char limit sooner than you think.
      The Backup Report will state as source: "[multiple source 
      locations, fully recreated in target]".
    * Backing up search results: now, if the search has been done over 
      multiple locations (> 1 location in Location field) then the same 
      method as described above (Backup from Catalog) is applied to 
      avoid any collisions. This has not been handled before, so this 
      point could also be filed under bug fixes.
    * Menu Edit | Move To is not allowed from Catalog anymore. It would 
      render the Catalog useless.
    ! Fixed a glitch with the "Preview Now" button.

    + Configuration | Color Filters: I finally made up my mind about 
      color coding the Tree. Now it can be done.
    + UDC: added new command category "Rename". It comes in four 
      flavours:
        - It's a Batch Rename pattern. Show preview.
        - It's a Batch Rename pattern. No preview.
        - It's a Regular Expression. Show preview.
        - It's a Regular Expression. No preview.
      Might feel a bit unusual to append the binary choice "Show/No 
      Preview" like this, but it keeps the interface lighter which 
      otherwise would need a hideable checkbox which is not worth the 
      pain for now.
      The rules for the patterns are, of course, identical to the ones 
      in Rename Special | Batch Rename and Rename Special | RegExp 
      Rename.
      This is the last UDC command category for now. Later, in v6.60 I 
      will add a very powerful one called "Free Script" (or so) and 
      which will finally add my vision of a very simple user-friendly 
      scripting to XY!
    ! List: scrolling by keys (Home, End...) did not work as expected 
      when the focused item was out of view. Fixed.
    ! List: Renaming via edit box failed when triggering the rename (and 
      closing the box) by clicking the list. Fixed.
    ! Breadcrumb: "MyComputer" command was broken since 3 days. Fixed.

Download the latest XYplorer BETA version (v6.40.0025, 28-oct-2007).
Choose one: (1) Install Package, (2) No-Install Package (each < 1 MB).

Code: Select all

v6.40.0025 - 2007-10-28 14:30
    + Info Panel | Find Files | Contained Text: added checkbox "Invert". 
      Check it to find all files NOT containing the given text string.
      Note that the Contained Text filter never returns folders 
      (although they naturally do NOT contain any given text string).
    + Configuration | Startup & Exit: added "Permanent startup path". 
      Here you can set a path that will always be the startup path, even 
      if you closed the app on another path and saved this other path to 
      the INI file. If "Permanent startup path" is empty then everything 
      is as it has always been: XYplorer starts where it was closed last 
      time (if "Save settings on exit" is enabled).
      Note: If XY was closed in Find mode, then the "Permanent startup 
      path" will auto-set the mode to browse on next startup.
    + Configuration | Startup & Exit: added option "Startup minimized". 
      Check it to always startup minimized. Useful when XYplorer is 
      auto-launched upon boot. 
    + New Tweak: now you can disallow a find operation on startup (which 
      otherwise is triggered when you closed the app in Find mode). In the 
      INI you'll find a new key:
        [Settings]
        NoFindOnStartup=0
      Set it to 1 to always startup in Browse mode.
    * Configuration | Color Filters: the typical pattern-based color 
      coding (e.g. *.png;*.jpg;*.gif) is, of course, not meaningful for 
      the Tree folders, so from now on, these patterns will only be 
      applied to the list. In other words: the Tree color coding is 
      constricted to attribute patterns, e.g. /s, /c, /e (= /system, 
      /compressed, /encrypted), etc.
    ! Going Up and Breadcrumb did not work/look as expected when the 
      current List was blocked/grey because the tab's path is not 
      available anymore. Fixed.
