Code: Select all

v20.60.0201 - 2019-12-03 09:32
    + Address Bar: Now single-quoted paths are handled as if they were unquoted, 
      e.g. 'C:\Windows\debug'. Also leading spaces will be ignored (before, you 
      would not see the icon in that case).
    ! Dropping Messages: Error "Invalid FORMATETC structure" when 
      dragging/dropping from SAP client. Fixed.
    ! Re-added some debug logging concerning a rare network issue.
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

v20.60.0202 - 2019-12-03 18:15
    + Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | 64-bit Windows: Added option 
      "Fallback to IFilters of the other bitness". Before (since v20.40.0023 - 
      2019-10-02 17:52), this was the hard-coded behavior, but it obviously 
      slows down the search so it's a good idea to make it optional.
      If ticked then if the IFilters of the first tried bitness return nothing 
      the IFilters of the other bitness are tried as a fallback strategy.      
      Note that if ticked then the option "Use 64-bit IFilters" controls which 
      IFilters are tried first. If "Use 64-bit IFilters" is unticked then 32-bit 
      IFilters are tried first.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

Code: Select all

v20.60.0205 - 2019-12-04 21:22
    + User-defined Preview Handlers: Now you can have wildcards in the extension 
      part of an entry to match whole families of items. To mark an extension as 
      wildcarded extension prefix it with * (asterisk); this * is not part of 
      the actual pattern but just the marker.
      Fictitious examples:
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        Pattern                                         Matches
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        *ab?>{1B1E92F5-AC8E-4DAB-9804-3C01AA112F17}     "ab" plus one other character
        *??{2B1E92F5-AC8E-4DAB-9804-3C01AA112F17}       any two characters
        *###{2B1E92F5-AC8E-4DAB-9804-3C01AA112F17}      three digits
        *3##{2B1E92F5-AC8E-4DAB-9804-3C01AA112F17}      all numbers from 300 to 399
        3##{2B1E92F5-AC8E-4DAB-9804-3C01AA112F17}       3## (# not treated as wildcard)
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    + SC echo: Added alias "e" to this command because the it's often used and 
      I'm tired oy typing "echo".

    * User-defined Preview Handlers: The new wildcard extensions weren't fully
      case-insensitive. Now they are.
    ! MLS: A label in the Date Picker dialog did not work alright in Russian 
      (and probably other languages based on a codepage). Fixed.
    ! In higher DPI settings certain buttons in certain message boxes were drawn 
      not wide enough. Fixed.
    ! Locked Tree: There could be a temporary freeze when switching to a network 
      tab (UNC) whose server is not part of the locked tree. Fixed.

v20.60.0209 - 2019-12-07 15:47
    + Scripting: Now the parser recognizes the common prefix 0b for binary 
      values. Supported are up to 4 bytes per number, i.e. 32 binary digits. 
      Here for some examples:
        echo 0b0; //0
        echo 0b1; //1
        echo 0b11; //3
        echo 0b10000000; //128
        echo 0b11111111; //255
        echo 0b100000000; //256
        echo 0b00000000000000000000000000000001; //1
        echo 0b10000000000000000000000000000000; //-2147483648
        echo 0b11111111111111111111111111111111; //-1
      The following are examples for invalid binary strings; they are returned 
      unresolved:
        echo 0b2;           //0b2 (invalid value)
        echo 0b;            //0b  (no value)
        echo 0B1;           //0B1 (wrong prefix)
        echo 0b110000000000000000000000000000000; //0b110000000000000000000000000000000 (too many characters)
        echo "0b1";         //0b1 (quoted)
    + SC inputselect enhanced: Now you can use the Edit Text font in the list, 
      just pass bit 16384 (2^14 = 0b100000000000000) in the style argument.
      Syntax: inputselect(header, listdata, [separator="|"], [style=1], _
                  [cancel], [width=800], [height=400], [windowcaption], [preselect])
        style: 
         16384 = Use Edit Text font (instead of the default Buttons and Labels font).
      Examples:
        text inputselect("Test", listfolder(), , 1);          // Buttons and Labels font
        text inputselect("Test", listfolder(), , 1 + 16384);  // Edit Text font
        text inputselect("Test", listfolder(), , 0b100000000000001);  // Edit Text font (binary number)
    * Configuration | General | Safety Belts, Network | Network | Fast network 
      enumeration: Now OFF by factory default on *any* Windows version. Before, 
      it was turned ON if older than Win10.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v20.60.0210 - 2019-12-09 19:25
    + Network: Added support for WSL. Now "\\wsl$" is accepted as valid server 
      name (normally "$" is not a valid character for servers).
    * Rename in List: Now when rename fails, e.g. because the file is in use, 
      you will be brought back to the rename box after the error message is 
      OK-ed. That way you don't lose the changes you tried to make.
    + SC popupmenu / popupnested: Now you can use *.<DIR> as a pseudo extension 
      for folders in the icon slot, i.e. you can use it to show the generic 
      folder icon. Example:
        echo popupmenu("Something with Folder Icon;Now *.<DIR> shows the folder icon.;*.<DIR>");

v20.60.0211 - 2019-12-10 21:06
    + Catalog: Added tweak CatalogFlags (bit field):
        Value   Function
        1       Auto-optimize the Catalog, i.e. auto-collapse non-current categories.
                (was previously tweak AutoOptimizeCatalog)
        2       Suppress overlays for Catalog items with "Action on click" set to 
                anything other than "Go to Location".
                (was previously tweak CatalogNoActionOverlays)
        4       Resolve XY native and environment variables in the caption.
                (NEW)
      Example:
        CatalogFlags=7        //all of the above functions (1+2+4)
    - Removed tweak AutoOptimizeCatalog from v9.90.0515 - 2011-03-22 22:28.
      It's now part of the new tweak CatalogFlags.
    - Removed tweak CatalogNoActionOverlays from v10.10.0008 - 2011-07-27 14:09.
      It's now part of the new tweak CatalogFlags.
    + Open Throw Away Clone: Added a little pro trick: Hold CTRL while clicking 
      the command to open a fresh instance in the current path. So it's the same 
      as runnning the script "freshhere;".
    ! Rename in List: Yesterday's change was not perfect yet. Fixed.
