Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v20.30.0013 - 2019-09-02 12:25
  +++ Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | 64-bit Windows: Added option 
      "Use 64-bit IFilters". Tick it to make use of any installed 64-bit 
      IFilters and thus enable previewing and searching the textual contents of 
      complex document formats (e.g. Office files, PDF).
      
      Notes:
      - Notoriously Microsoft Office made it a habit to install only 64-bit 
        IFilters on a 64-bit system, even if the Office version itself is 
        32-bit. However, 64-bit IFilters are completely useless to other 32-bit 
        apps (Office itself does not need them).
      - From this version onwards XYplorer can optionally access those 64-bit 
        IFilters by way of a 64-bit helper process created by Contents64.exe, 
        which from now on is included in the distribution package.
        Contents64.exe (currently ver 1.3) has to be located in the path of 
        XYplorer.exe. The installer takes care of this.
      - In practical terms this means XYplorer can now text-preview (e.g. in the 
        Hover Box) and content-search Office and PDF files on 64-bit Windows.
      - Of course, the option is only offered under 64-bit Windows (it would be
        meaningless under 32-bit Windows).
      - The functionality is provided by the helper file Contents64.exe which 
        has to be located in the path of XYplorer.exe. The new download packages 
        contain this file.
      - Last not least, credits and a big thanks for designing and writing 
        Contents64.exe go to "Mesh" (from XY Beta Club)!
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.

Code: Select all

v20.30.0016 - 2019-09-04 21:23
    + Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up: Added option "Fit width 
      only". If ticked then the blow up is shrunk so that the full width fits in 
      the view port, only vertical panning is possible, and the panning is 
      restricted to what's necessary to show the full height of the blow up.
      Like "Shrink to fit" the setting affects all instances of MDBU in XYplorer.
    * Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up | General: Changed the order 
      of options for cosmetic reasons.
    - Removed tweak ShrinkToFitNoMove from v14.50.0102 - 2014-09-23 20:09. Now 
      it's internally hardcoded to ON. It affected MDBU on thumbnails only 
      anyway, other MDBU never moved on "Shrink to fit".

v20.30.0017 - 2019-09-05 17:40
    + Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up | Mouse Down on Thumbnails 
      and Icons: Added option "Fit popup width only". Does the same as "Fit 
      width only" (slightly different caption to avoid confusion), but only on 
      thumbnails and only on right-click. So that way you can have the full size 
      popup on left-click, and the fit width one on right-click.
    * Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up: Renamed "On left mouse down 
      (popup stays up until button is released)" to "On left mouse down". The 
      extra info is now in the tooltip.
    + Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up | Mouse Down on Thumbnails 
      and Icons: Added option "On middle mouse down". Tick it to enable Mouse 
      Down Blow Up on thumbnails/icons using the middle button.
      Note that you can enable both left and middle button at the same time. Any 
      combination works.
    * Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up: Renamed "Fit image to 
      screen" to "Fit popup to screen".
    * List: Select/Unselect was possible using the middle button. Not anymore.
    * List: Drag selection was possible using the middle button. Not anymore.
    * List: Dragging items was possible using the middle button. Not anymore.
    * Tree: Select was possible using the middle button. Not anymore.

    * Tools | List Management | Servers in Network Folder...: Now the Sort 
      button is enabled. But the list is auto-sorted on OK anyway so you don't 
      really need to bother.
    ! Tools | List Management | Servers in Network Folder...: Did not handle 
      duplicate and empty entries as they deserve: dumped. Fixed.
    ! Tools | List Management | Servers in Network Folder...: When you added a 
      trailing backslash to the servers the app did not handle that well. Fixed. 
      Now it does not matter whether there is a backslash or not.

    + Added tweak CEA_ListMiddleClickOnFile_Script to define a script that's run 
      when tweak CEA_ListMiddleClickOnFile is set to 6.
      Example:
        ; Tweak: 0=Default, 1=OpenInNewTab, 2=FloatingPreview, 3=FullScreenPreview, 6=Script
        CEA_ListMiddleClickOnFile=6
        CEA_ListMiddleClickOnFile_Script=echo <focitem>;
    * Tweak CEA_ListMiddleClickOnFile now selects a file on mousedown before 
      further action is triggered on mouseup.
    % Photo Data: Improved support for TIF/TIFF.
    - Removed all debug logging concerning a rare network issue. It's fixed.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.115.

      location while a locked tab was active, the previous FVS of the default

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

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

Code: Select all

v20.40.0000 - 2019-09-10 20:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Content Search and Preview. Now both 64-bit and 32-bit IFilters are 
      supported. This broadens the support for previewing and searching the 
      textual contents of complex document formats (e.g. Office files).
  +++ Quick Refresh List. The white space context menu of the file list now 
      features the command "Refresh List". A little gesture towards heavy mouse 
      users.
  +++ Color Filters. Now you can optionally have Color Filters fill the whole 
      column. Makes them more visible, especially with short-named files.
  +++ Previewed Audio Formats. Added DSD and DSF files (Sony's DSD Stream File) 
      to the previewed audio files. Note that this format is ID3V2 compliant and 
      thus XYplorer will show the tags in the Preview Panel and in the various 
      ID3-Tag columns. Needs a matching CODEC installed, of course.
  +++ Mouse Down Blow Up. The new "Fit width only" option is perfect for quickly 
      previewing vertical images in best resolution for vertical-only panning.
  +++ Mouse Down Blow Up on Thumbnails and Icons. Now the middle mouse button 
      can be used. Frees left and right button to perform their traditional 
      tasks.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of Sanford Clark.
