    ! The recently added "Watch the clipboard" distroyed the autoupdate of the 
      Clipboard Markers when turned off. That was not intended and is fixed now.
      The only possible fix was to always watch the clipboard, of course. Which 
      means that the Edit Clipboard button does reflect the current state of the 
      clipboard again. So the effect of unticking "Watch the clipboard" is now 
      much smaller and only affects the "Restore Previous Clipboard" function.
    * Configuration | File Operations | Undo & Action Log | Clipboard: Renamed 
      "Watch the clipboard" to "Log clipboard contents and enable restore".
      Tick it to be able to restore the previous clipboard (Edit | Paste Special 
      | Restore Previous Clipboard). Untick it if you don't care and want to 
      save that memory and CPU.
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.

    ! Tree, List: Since Shift+Wheel does horizontal scrolling (if possible), 
      added in v19.20.0018 - 2018-10-09 14:30, a mouse-triggered horizontal 
      scrolling would not work anymore without holding Shift. Fixed.
    ! Tree, List: Drag'n'drop from certain sources to XYplorer did not work 
      anymore since 2019-03-17. Fixed.

v20.20.0101 - 2019-07-07 13:07
    ! Color Filters in Dark Mode: The readability of text colors on the dark 
      background was improved in v20.10.0007 - 2019-06-09 11:36. However, the 
      results of the new formula were too extreme for some colors. Fixed.
    > Find Files | Searching for Windows Comments: Just a tip because the Help 
      file is somewhat lacking here at the moment. If you are looking for love 
      you have these options:
      
      prop:#24:love                     #24 is the index of the Comments property in Win8.1
                                        This index changes with every Windows release!
                                        You can look up the index in this list:
                                        Configuration | Information | File Info Tips | Show custom file info tips
      
      prop:System.Comment:love          This way should be stable across all Windows 
                                        releases from Win7 onwards. But you never know.
                                        The codes ("System.Comment") are found here, but bring some time:
                                        https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/windows/win32/properties/props
      
      prop:*Comments:love               Works if the Comments property is called "Comments", i.e. if your
                                        locale is English.
      
      prop:*Kommentare:love             Works if the Comments property is called "Kommentare", i.e. if your
                                        locale is German.

Code: Select all

v20.20.0102 - 2019-07-08 13:12
    + Added tweak to preview binary files as text if there is nothing better. 
      The previous hard-coded behavior was ON but now the factory default is OFF.
      To turn it on:
        PreviewBinariesAsTextIfNoneBetter=1
      Might add it to UI later.
    % Find Files: Increased the progress rate in the status bar for slow 
      searches with few returns in large folders. Before, it seemed that 
      virtually nothing was going on. Now you get to see some action.
    % Find Files: Searches for extended properties by key are now 3 times faster!
      Before, prop:#24:love was about 3 times faster than 
      prop:System.Comment:love. Now both have the same speed.
    ! Find Files: If Match Case is unticked (in Info Panel / Find Files / Name & 
      Location; in Quick Search (F3) it is internally OFF by default) a selector
      "System.Comment" was internally lower-cased to "system.comment" when found 
      in a Boolean term. But Windows does not recognize it then! It wants 
      "System.Comment". Quite unusual for Windows.
      So this would not have worked:
        :peace and prop:System.Comment:love
      Fixed.

    + SC getpathcomponent(), gpc(): Added component value "name" as an 
      alternative to "file". Makes sense since it can also refer to folders and 
      is more consistent with the variable <curname>, which returns the same. 
      And a variable <curfile> does not even exist.
        echo gpc(, "name"); //same as "file"
    * File | File Special | Swap Names: Now the Attributes column ("Attr") for 
      both files is updated right away if necessary (the Archive bit is set 
      after a rename), even when Auto-Refresh is off.

    + Breadcrumb Bars | Hamburger: Now you can append a comment to the end of

    * Breadcrumb Bars | Hamburger: From now on any comments must be separated by

      ambiguities.
    ! SC popupmenu / popupnested: Since v20.20.0105 - 2019-07-12 11:52 you could 
      not have "//" in the captions anymore since it was treated as a comment 
      separator. Fixed.
    * Trial Version: The nag screen now is shown again from trial day 25 onwards 
      so that the user knows the trial period will soon be over.
    ! SC getpathcomponent(), gpc(): When using flag 1 (Return from start) on UNC 
      paths the UNC prefix "\\" was missing in the return. Fixed.
    ! Toolbar | Edit Clipboard: Tooltip flickered when pressing Shift while 
      shown if "Configuration | File Operations | Undo & Action Log | Clipboard
