    % Tabs: Now you don't get a superfluous annoying tooltip anymore on 
      releasing the mouse on a tab that you just selected. Ahh, what a relief!

    + Address Bar: Experimentally extended the LiveFilterShotgunPrefix and 
      LiveFilterIsShotgun tweaks to include Address Bar (and other Dropdowns 
      with dropdown match list).
      - The LiveFilterShotgunPrefix now just work in those Dropdowns, too.
      - The LiveFilterIsShotgun (bit field) got a new value:
        LiveFilterIsShotgun=1     'shotgun in the main LFB
        LiveFilterIsShotgun=2     'shotgun in the small LFBs in dialogs
        LiveFilterIsShotgun=4     'shotgun in dropdowns with dropdown match list (NEW)
    ! Patching Internal Images: Image were distorted if the source had a 
      different aspect ratio from the target. Fixed. Now you can use a narrow 
      (portrait) or flat (landscape) image and it will be horizontally or 
      vertically centered in the toolbar button without distortion.

    + Toolbar: Hold CTRL while hovering a button and the tooltip will show the 
      button key and the current image key or image path (if different from 
      button key). If you are into patching toolbar images you will like this.
    * Toolbar: Now non-toolbar images can (if you happen to know the image key, 
      for which you need to be a hacker, or know one well) be used on the 
      toolbar, e.g. in Custom Toolbar Buttons, and should look alright in all 
      toolbar sizes.

    + Toolbar | Edit Clipboard: Now hovering the button will preview any image 
      currently in the clipboard, in a Hover Box. If you work with images you'll 
      LOVE it!
      Note that the Hover Box keyboard shortcuts work here, of course, so you 
      can e.g. use Numpad Add/Subtract to size the box.

      of images.

Code: Select all

v19.80.0131 - 2019-03-30 13:55
    * Tabsets: Before, tabsets were revertible across sessions. If you did not 
      explicitly save a tabset you could always go back to the last-saved state 
      by clicking "Revert to Saved", and that worked across sessions. There was 
      a "temporary-saved state" in a folder called "t" (saved when doing a "File 
      | Save Settings") and a "final-saved state" in the folder above "t" (saved 
      when doing a "Tabsets | Save").
      Now this behavior is a bit crazy since all other settings in XYplorer are 
      handled differently. Therefore I changed it: From now on tabsets are NOT 
      revertible anymore across sessions, but only within the session. If you 
      save settings, or exit the app with "Save settings on exit" enabled, then 
      the current tabsets (one in each pane) are *finally* saved to disk. 
      Clicking "Revert to Saved" will go back to that saved state.
      Since this is an important change I cared for a soft transition:
      - I added a tweak that allows you to stay with the old behavior:
          TabsetsCanRevertAcrossSessions=1
      - On upgrading to this version this tweak is automatically set to 1, so 
        nothing will change for you unless you explicitly change that tweak to 0:
          TabsetsCanRevertAcrossSessions=0
      - In a fresh installation, of course, that tweak is now set to 0 to enable 
        the new behavior.
      - Note that, if TabsetsCanRevertAcrossSessions=0, any still existing 
        temporary states (in "t"-folders) are still *read*, otherwise you would 
        lose the last temporary-saved states of your tabsets and fall back hard 
        to the last final-saved states. After the next "Save Settings" these 
        folders will just disappear and never come back again.
    ! Toolbar | Edit Clipboard | Image Preview: Fixed some glitches. E.g. ESC 
      can close it now.

    % Find Files | Tag Search: Removed some internal caching that had been 
      applied to searching tags since 20120214. Now I found that in real world 
      this caching was very rarely efficient (the cache was always written but 
      hardly ever read). So I removed it. This should make most tag searches 
      faster and memory-slimmer.
    ! Hover Box: Did not work for LNKs to network locations. Fixed.

    + Scripting got a new function.
      Name: Lax
      Action: Allows to define a string in a lax way.
      Syntax: lax(string)
        string: String expression treated in a lax way. Variables are resolved. 
                Everything else is just left as it is. All single and double 
                quotes are preserved. No "Dubious Syntax" warnings.
      Use:
        Makes it easier to define complex arguments with lots of quotes.
      Examples:
        echo lax(hi...          there!);  //no quotes necessary, spaces are preserved
        echo lax('<curitem>');  //<curitem> is resolved, quotes are preserved
        run lax("C:\Program Files (x86)\WinRAR\WinRAR.exe" x "<curitem>");
    + Info Panel | Preview: Now undefined file types (absent in Configuration | 
      Preview | Previewed Formats), e.g. "*.tmp", are previewed as text files if 
      their content looks like text.
      Note that this was already happening in Floating Preview, Hover Box, and 
      Mouse Down Blow Up.

    + Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs | Show 'New Tab' button: Now this

        TabShowListButtonPos=0    flexible  (default)
        TabShowListButtonPos=1    left
        TabShowListButtonPos=2    right
    * Tabs: Slightly changed the algorithm that controls the flexible position 
      of the 'New Tab' and the 'Tab List' button. Now there is no 
      rounding-induced flicker anymore near the point where the position flips 
      from right to left.
