Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v21.40.0103 - 2021-01-03 12:47
    + Find Files and Quick Search: Added switch /i by which the search results 
      are inverted, i.e. all items are shown that do NOT match the pattern. It 
      corresponds to the Invert checkbox on Info Panel | Find Files | Name & 
      Location.
      Examples:
        sweet     match anything sweet
        sweet /i  match anything not sweet
      Remark:
        The /types switch cannot be inverted by /i or by the Invert checkbox. 
        For this use the new switch /itypes (see below).
    + Find Files and Quick Search: Added switch /itypes by which you define a 
      list of file types (via extension) that shall NOT be returned by the 
      search. In other words, it's the inverted version of the /types switch.
      - Syntax and options are identical to the /types switch.
      - If you use /types and /itypes in the same search the right-most one will 
        win so there is no point in doing this.
      Example:  
        b* /itypes=zip;rar    return all items starting with "b" but not of those types
    + Configuration | Find and Filter | Filters & Type Ahead Find | Visual 
      Filters: Added option "Enable extended pattern matching". Tick it to allow 
      ! for Boolean Not, and # for digits in Visual Filters.
      You can escape the ! by putting a \ before it.
      Examples:
        sweet     match anything sweet
        !sweet    match anything not sweet
        \!sweet   match anything !sweet
        !\!sweet  match anything not !sweet
      Remarks:
        - This setting raises the tweak VFExtendedPatternMatching (v20.70.0018 - 
          2020-02-10 14:24) to the GUI.
        - But other than the previous tweak now it only applies to Visual 
          Filters, not to Live Filters (it gets its setting, see below).
        - The setting is also found in the right-click menu of the Visual Filter 
          toolbar buttons.
        - The factory default (and previously hard-coded behavior) is ON.
    + Configuration | Find and Filter | Filters & Type Ahead Find | Live Filter 
      Box: Added option "Enable extended pattern matching". Tick it to allow 
      ! for Boolean Not, and # for digits in Live Filters.
      You can escape the ! by putting a \ before it.
      Examples:
        sweet     match anything sweet
        !sweet    match anything not sweet
        \!sweet   match anything !sweet
        !\!sweet  match anything not !sweet
      Remarks:
        - This setting replaces the tweak VFExtendedPatternMatching (v20.70.0018 - 
          2020-02-10 14:24) which previously applied to Live Filters only. Now 
          Visual Filters and Live Filters have separate settings here.
        - The setting is also found in the right-click menu of the Live Filter 
          Box icon.
        - The factory default is OFF.      
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.127.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.127.lng is uploaded.
        You will be notified if you have subscribed to this thread:
        https://www.xyplorer.com/xyfc/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=9648
    * Custom Copy: The Used Space bar tooltip now shows the path of the actually 
      polled drive. In some contexts (junctions, mounted drives, network drives) 
      this can be interesting.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0162.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

    ! Custom Copy: Progress dialog did not support font size 11.25 very well. 
      Fixed. Higher sizes will begin to break it. If you need higher sizes you 
      should use the Windows display settings.

v21.40.0105 - 2021-01-05 21:22
    * Shell Context Menu: Since v21.30.0050 - 2020-12-20 15:57 it's not shown 
      anymore for the targets of links (shortcuts) to network locations. From 
      now on, this is only in effect if the tweak NetworkPrecheckServers is set 
      to 1.
    * Hover Box: Since v21.30.0050 - 2020-12-20 15:57 it's not shown anymore for 
      the targets of links (shortcuts) to network locations. From now on, this 
      is only in effect if the tweak NetworkPrecheckServers is set to 1.
    + SC getpathcomponent(), gpc(): Added component value "lext" to return the 
      extension in lower case.
      For example, to toggle webp/jpg extensions, this script works with *.JPG 
      and *.jpg files, and with *.WEBP and *.webp files:
        if (gpc(,"lext")=="webp") {renameitem("*.jpg")} elseif (gpc(,"lext")=="jpg") {renameitem("*.webp")};
    * SC get(): Now get("curitem", "lext") can be used to return the extension 
      in lower case.
        echo get("curitem", "ext");   //original case
        echo get("curitem", "lext");  //lower case

v21.40.0106 - 2021-01-06 13:32
  +++ Hover Box | Text Files: Now you can keyboard-scroll the text within a 
      Hover Box if there is more text than fits in the box.
      - Supported keys: Down, Up, PageDown, PageUp, End, Home.
      - PageDown/PageUp scroll by 12 lines.
      - If the file is larger than 200 KB you can scroll through the first 100 
        KB and the last 100 KB only (use End and Home to jump between those 
        chunks). I think that's more than enough, after all Hover Box is just 
        about a quick visual check.
      Notes:
      - There is still an issue when the file has long lines that wrap. In that 
        case you currently cannot scroll down enough to see the bottom of the 
        file. Still thinking about this...
      - Key input into the Hover Box does not work when the focus is in an edit 
        box (it grabs all keys), eg in the Address Bar. However, you can use TAB 
        while the Hover Box is open to escape the edit box, and then scroll.

    * Hover Box | Text Scrolling: Decreased the chunk size to 32 KB. It's enough 
      and speed matters as well.
    ! Hover Box | Text Scrolling: There was an issue with files that had long 
      lines that would wrap. Fixed. This fix also makes scrolling faster.

v21.40.0108 - 2021-01-07 13:10
    + Hover Box | Text Scrolling: Now it supports the mouse wheel. Works like 
      pageUp/pageDown in the Hover Box: 12 lines up or down. Note that it also 
      wheels the box when the mouse pointer is not over the box. Cool!
    + Hover Box | Text Scrolling: Now a subtle visual scrollbar at the right 
      margin of the box tells you where about in the file you currently are.

v21.40.0110 - 2021-01-07 19:37
    + Hover Box | Text Scrolling: Now it also works for Office files and Web 
      files if the Hover Box shows the extracted text.
    + Hover Box | Text: While the Hover Box is showing text you now can toggle 
      word wrap by pressing the "W" key. Remembered across sessions.
      - If word wrap is enabled (factory default) the maximum width of the box is 
        about half the width of the screen.
      - If word wrap is disabled (factory default) the maximum width of the box is 
        about 2/3 the width of the screen.
      - If word wrap is disabled longer lines will simply disappear at the right 
        edge, without any ellipsis dots.
      - On toggling word wrap the scroll position will jump back to top.
    ! Hover Box | Text Scrolling: Fixed countless little bugs.

      In the latter case Down, Up, PageDown, and PageUp can now cross the border

v21.40.0123 - 2021-01-11 22:01
    + Open Throw Away Clone: Added another little pro trick: Hold CTRL+SHIFT 
      while clicking the command to open a fully enabled (non-throw-away) clone 
      of the current window. This means it's identical to a Throw Away Clone, 
      but without READ-ONLY.
      You can achieve the same as above using the following new scripting 
      command:
    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: NewWindow
      Action: Opens a path in a new window.
      Syntax: newwindow [path]
        path    path to open a new window (clone of the current window)
                defaults to current path
