v21.40.0124 - 2021-01-12 16:18
    + Tags | Tags: Added command "Update Tag List": Click it to update the tag 
      list to the tags currently used in the tags database (usually tag.dat).
      Note: The same command has been available in the right-click menu of the 
      Toolbar Tags Buttons since v14.30.0404 - 2014-08-17 17:01.
    + Toolbar | Tags Buttons: Now the number of tags in the dropdown menu is 
      tweakable. The (new) factory default is 24, but you can set it to any 
      value >= 0, for example:
        TagMaxTagsInMenu=30
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.

v21.40.0128 - 2021-01-14 18:06
    + Custom Columns: Added variable <cc_overlay>. Returns the overlay index of 
      the item's icon. 
      Within e.g. Dropbox or Google Drive folders icon overlays may be used to 
      reflect the sync state of an item. This new variable returns the index 
      number of the overlay. Useless by itself, but it allows you to *sort* the 
      list by this property, or to search items by this property.
      Usage: In a Custom Column of Type "Script" use this line in the Script 
      field:
        return <cc_overlay>;
      To find all items with a value 7 use either of these search patterns if 
      your Custom Column is #48 and called "Overlay Index":
        cc48:7
        Overlay Index:7
      Note that it also works when "Configuration | General | Refresh, Icons, 
      History | Icons | Show icon overlays" is OFF.
    + Custom Event Actions: Now you can temporarily turn off all "Changing 
      Locations" CEAs for this session (= not remembered across sessions) using 
      the scripting command tweak():
        tweak("SkipBrowseEvents", "");  //toggle
        tweak("SkipBrowseEvents", 1);   //set
        tweak("SkipBrowseEvents", 0);   //unset
        echo tweak("SkipBrowseEvents"); //get

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

Direct Download: https://www.xyplorer.com/download/xyplorer_full.zip
Download Page: https://www.xyplorer.com/download.php
Release Notes: https://www.xyplorer.com/release.php

Code: Select all

v21.50.0000 - 2021-01-15 18:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Hover Box Scrolling. Now you can keyboard-scroll and wheel-scroll the 
      Folder Contents Preview, the Zip Contents Preview, and the Text Preview. 
      You won't get this degree of interface coolness anywhere else.
  +++ Hover Box for Tabs. Now you can show a Hover Box with Folder Contents 
      Preview for any tab simply by hovering the tab header icon. Saves you a 
      click if you just want to quickly see what's in the tab, or what has 
      recently arrived in the tab. Even works for Paper Folders.
  +++ Custom Copy with Free Space Status. Now the progress dialog shows the 
      amount of used and free space on the target drive in real time, 
      graphically and in numbers. Just gives you that soothing feeling that 
      comes from knowing the consequences of your actions.
  +++ Shorten Filenames. Now you can shorten the names of a whole bunch of files 
      by cutting off a certain number of characters from the right end of the 
      base name.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of The Hi-Jivers.

v21.50.0001 - 2021-01-16 14:18
    + Catalog: Now the right-click menu command "Go to in new background tab" 
      also works with files. The containing folder will be opened as new 
      background tab and the file will be preselected in that tab.
    * Hover Box Scrolling: From now on wheel and keys are eaten by the box only 
      if it is showing text or folder contents, i.e. contents that *can* have a 
      scrollbar. Note that it does not matter if there actually *is* a scrollbar 
      because IMO that condition would be too complex to develop a reliable 
      motor memory for these situations.
    ! Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Caption lines: Since v21.40.0126 - 
      2021-01-13 17:13 the value increased by one with every OK-ing the config. 
      Fixed.

v21.50.0002 - 2021-01-16 21:44
    + Hover Box Scrolling: Now the wheel can scale images. Up = bigger, Down = 
      smaller (10 pixels per notch). Same functionality as Numpad Add and 
      Subtract. Hold SHIFT to double the impact. Cool!
    + Hover Box Scrolling: Now it honors wheel acceleration, i.e. you can scroll 
      much faster by wheeling faster. Cool!
    ! Hover Box: Since 20210105 the DEL key did not work anymore when the Hover 
      Box was up. Fixed.

v21.50.0003 - 2021-01-17 15:16
    + Rename Special | Batch Rename: Now /cut can keep a certain number of 
      characters at the right end of the base:
      Syntax: /cut [start,]length[,keep]
      Remarks:  You must state "start" as well if you want to use "keep".
      Examples:
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        /cut 1,10,4       keep the last 4 characters, take the first 10 characters
        /cut 3,10,4       keep the last 4 characters, take 10 characters beginning at pos 3
        /cut 1,-1000,4    keep the last 4 characters
        /cut 1000,0,4     keep the last 4 characters
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      The last two apply some syntactic abuse that just works well.
    ! Hover Box for Tabs: Did not work for iconized tabs. Fixed.
    ! Hover Box for Tabs: Did not work for tabs pointing to soft paths 
      (<xydata>, %temp%, etc). Fixed.
    ! Hover Box Scrolling: Could not wheel-scale PDFs. Fixed.
