Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v19.70.0116 - 2019-03-07 17:14
    + File Attributes: Added 3 new file attributes to the attributes on the 
      Properties tab and on the Attributes tab (Find Files), and to the 
      Attributes (Attr) column in the list.
        - Pinned    = FILE_ATTRIBUTE_PINNED = 0x00080000
        - Unpinned  = FILE_ATTRIBUTE_UNPINNED = 0x00100000
        - Recall    = FILE_ATTRIBUTE_RECALL_ON_DATA_ACCESS = 0x00400000
      To reference the new attributes in Visual Filters or Color Filters use 
      these letters (note that contrary to other attributes there are no 
      alternative full words available, just single letters):
        - Pinned    = p
        - Unpinned  = u
        - Recall    = l
      For example, (Visual Filters or Color Filters):
        attr:l               = Recall attribute set
        attrlist:pul         = Pinned AND Unpinned AND Recall attribute set
    + Find Files and Quick Search: Added two Search Pattern Prefixes (aka 
      Selectors) that were curiously missing, "attr" and "attrlist", which will 
      let you search for NTFS file attributes.
      The syntax is identical to the one used in Visual Filters and Color 
      Filters. So, for example, now you can search for read-only items like 
      this:
        attr:readonly
        attr:r
      If you look for a combination of attributes, e.g. readonly AND directory, 
      you do it like this:
        attrlist:rd
    + Added tweak to enable fallback to horizontal scrolling if vertical 
      scrolling is not possible when using the mouse wheel.
        WheelFallbackToHorizontal=1
      Notes:
      - Previously it was hard-coded to ON.
      - Affects Tree and List.
      - When OFF you can still use the wheel over the horizontal scrollbar.
      - When OFF you can still hold SHIFT to force horizontal scrolling.
    ! SC self: Did not return the expected values for "file", "path", and "base" 
      when called from a user function. Fixed.
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.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v19.70.0117 - 2019-03-08 17:46
    + Find Files and Quick Search: Added switch /E by which you can force 
      Extended Pattern Matching for this particular search even if 
      "Configuration | Find and Filter | Find Files & Branch View | Find Files | 
      Enable extended pattern matching" if OFF.
      Examples for Quick Search patterns:
        !lbl:?* /n    //finds items without any label (regardless of being in tag DB, maybe), non-recursive
        !lbl:?* /nE   //finds items without any label (regardless of being in tag DB, always), non-recursive
      The first version needs "Configuration | Find and Filter | Find Files & 
      Branch View | Find Files | Enable extended pattern matching" to be ticked. 
      Not nice. The second version always works.
      BTW, the same as /E could already be achieved by the extended switch 
      "/matching=e":
        !lbl:?* /n /matching=e
      ... but the new way is just a little cooler.
    * Toolbar | Find by Label: Finding by "None" did not work as probably 
      expected. Changed that by applying a new syntax that uses the brand-new /E 
      switch. For example, with "Search Here" selected in the button's 
      right-click menu:
        OLD: lbl:"" /n       //finds items here without any label (but being in tag DB)
        NEW: !lbl:?* /nE     //finds items here without any label (regardless of being in tag DB)
      Note: If you "Search Everywhere" the "t" (= search in tags database only) 
      switch is now auto-provided to spare you from plowing through all your 
      disks.
        This PC?!lbl:?* /rEt    //finds items without any label (but being in tag DB)
    + Info Panel | Properties: The following file attributes can actually be set 
      by the user, so these checkboxes are now enabled:
      - Temporary
      - Offline
      - Not indexed
      Whether it makes sense to change those attributes is another question. 
      It's a free country, act responsibly.
    + Configuration | File Operations | File Operations | Custom Copy 
      Operations: Added option "Default to repeat action on collisions". Tick it 
      to initialize the "Do this also for the next collisions" checkbox to be 
      checked.
      Note that this setting affects Custom Copy/Move, Backup, and Sync 
      operations.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0144.
    % Toolbar: The buttons "labels" and "findlabel" now got a dark mode special 
      version. Note that these are the "None" variants of the buttons.
    ! Small Toolbars: With "XYplorer Classic Style" highlighting the hover 
      effect was wrong after switching to Dark Mode. Fixed.
    ! Tools | Customize Toolbar...: The buttons lists did not show the Dark Mode 
      variants of those buttons that have them. Fixed.
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.

v19.70.0118 - 2019-03-09 12:29
    * Info Panel: Unified the Attributes names.
      - Properties:               Folder -> Directory
      - Find Files | Attributes:  Not content indexed -> Not indexed
    + Info Panel | Find Files | Attributes: Now, just for your nerdy pleasure, 
      the attributes checkboxes show the value of each attribute in the tooltip.
    + Dark Mode: made dark versions for four Toolbar buttons (here the 
      keys for the dark graphic versions):
      - ghostdark     (hmmm, could have made a white ghost with black eyes, maybe later...)
      - hideosdark
      - icfdark       (redone)
      - paperdark
    ! View | Show Items | Show Hidden Files and Folders: Possible flicker in the 
      List when toggling this and other visibility settings. Fixed.

    + Tab Bars: Added tweak to customize the background color of the tab bars. 
      Specify the color in RRGGBB format, e.g.:
        TabBarBackColor=BFDAFE
    * Toolbar | Edit Clipboard: Improved the layout of the button tooltip.
    ! File | To Clipboard | Selected List Row(s): Did not work anymore. Fixed.
    ! File | To Clipboard | All List Rows: Did not work anymore. Fixed.

Code: Select all

v19.70.0120 - 2019-03-10 16:02
    + List: Added tweak to customize the colors of the column headers. Specify 
      the color in RRGGBB|RRGGBB format (backcolor|textcolor), e.g.:
        ListColumnHeaderColors=BFDAFE|223344
      You can omit the text color to have it auto-generated by artificial 
      intelligence:
        ListColumnHeaderColors=BFDAFE
      FYI, now you can also have completely white column headers, e.g.:
        ListColumnHeaderColors=FFFFFF|555555
      Note that in Dark Mode your colors will be smart-darkened.

      decoded correctly in all places of the interface. Fixed. Note that the bug 
      here is actually in the storage. Now XY works around it. Explorer does

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

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

Code: Select all

v19.80.0000 - 2019-03-12 14:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Multi-User-Tagging. The concept of Multi-User-Tagging, i.e. sharing file 
      tags within a networked team, is around for quite a while in XYplorer, but 
      the first implementation lacked power, comfort, and elegance. Not anymore.
      If you are looking for a way to implement a shared tagging system, you 
      found it. Easy setup, fast automatic real-time synchronization, access 
      control, and a large number of independent fields (Label, Tags, Comment, 
      and 16 freely definable Extra Tags) for each file.
      Give it a try, annotate a file and have all your team members see your 
      notes in real-time in their file manager. And see their comments in your 
      file manager. Your team is fully connected.
  +++ Status Log. Now the last 1000 changes in the Status Bar are permanently 
      logged. It might be interesting to see what those rapidly changing Status 
      Bar messages actually said, or what exactly you were doing 15 minutes ago. 
      Now you can find out.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of Fanny, "The Godmothers of 
      Chick Rock."

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v19.80.0102 - 2019-03-14 18:21
    + Edit | Paste Special: Added command "Paste Text As Item(s)" by which you 
      can paste a copy of the item(s) referred to by textual clipboard contents.
      - More than one item is possible, separated by | or by line feed (CRLF). 
        Both separators can be mixed. Empty lines/elements are auto-removed.
      - XYplorer native and environment variables are allowed.
      - Relative paths are resolved relative to the current path.
      - Leading and trailing spaces are trimmed on each item.
      - Folders are copied with their contents (of course).
      - URLs are supported as well. But only one at a time.
      Examples:
        Text on clipboard       Action
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        C:\Program Files (x86)\XYplorer\XYplorer Website.url
                                Pastes a copy of this file into the current location.
                                
        <xy>                    Pastes a copy of the current XYplorer.exe into the current location.
        
        <xydata>\ks.dat         Pastes a copy of these 2 files into the current location.
        <xydata>\pv.dat
        
        <xydata>\ks.dat|<xydata>\pv.dat   Pastes a copy of these 3 files into the current location.
        <xydata>\servers.dat
        
        https://www.xyplorer.com/download/xyplorer_full.zip
                                Pastes (downloads) a copy of this file into the current location.
                                
      Usage Examples:
      - A colleague mails you a path to some file on the intranet. You copy the 
        path from the email to the clipboard, then use "Paste Text As Item(s)" 
        to create a copy of that file in your current folder.
      - A colleague mails you the URL to some package in the web. You copy the 
        URL from the email to the clipboard, then use "Paste Text As Item(s)" 
        to download that file into your current folder.
      - Equally you can fetch download links on the web via clipboard and grab 
        those items by "Paste Text As Item(s)" without going via the Browser 
        Download to the Download folder.
      Tips:
      - Note that multiple source items can even be in totally different 
        locations. You are prompted whether to Rich Copy or not in that case.
      - Have the Edit Clipboard button in the Toolbar. Hover it to see what's in 
        the clipboard, right-click it to quickly access all the interesting 
        commands.
        
    * Toolbar | Recent File Operations: Replaced the old icon by a new one: A 
      green right arrow.
    * Installer: From now on when updating an installation (portable or not) the 
      file Startup.ini is not overwritten nor created if missing. That way a 
      portable installation (by way of a missing Startup.ini) remains portable.
    ! Miscellaneous | Focus Functions | Next/Previous Type Ahead Match: always 
      used "Match anywhere" regardless of the setting under "Configuration | 
      Find and Filter | Filters & Type Ahead Find | Type Ahead Find | Enable 
      type ahead find". Fixed.
    ! Dark Mode: When started in light mode the scrollbars were not darkened 
      after switching to dark mode. Fixed.
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.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v19.80.0103 - 2019-03-15 13:16
    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | Templates: Added option "Maximum 
      length of generated filenames (0 = unlimited)" where you can set a length 
      limit in number of characters.
      The <subject> field is cut down first, then if still needed the end of the 
      name is cut off.
    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | Templates | Dropped Messages: Now also 
      emails dropped from Thunderbird are processed along the user settings in 
      this section.
    ! Dropping Messages: The extra temp folder used for this job was not removed 
      after dropping. Fixed.
    ! Dropping Messages: Unicode From / To names were not always decoded 
      correctly from UTF-8. Fixed.
    + Drag Status Box: Now it shows the count of the dragged items also when 
      dragging from other apps into XYplorer.
    + SC pasteto enhanced: Now it can handle textual clipboard contents just 
      like "Paste Text As Item(s)". Set bit 1 flags to enable it.

      Syntax: pasteto [destination], [flags]
