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

v22.30.0000 - 2021-09-28 20:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Live Filter via Cell Context Menu. Now it's just a click to filter the 
      list for a specific property. And that's any property, including the 
      standard columns, tags, comments, extended shell properties, and even your 
      own user-defined custom columns. Unprecedented and addictive usability 
      booster. And the learning curve is a dot.
  +++ Quick Search via Cell Context Menu. Now it's just a click to search the 
      current location including its subfolders for a specific property. And 
      that's any property, including the standard columns, tags, comments, 
      extended shell properties, and even your own user-defined custom columns. 
      Just wow.
  +++ Photo Data in the Hover Box. See Camera Model, Focal Length, F-Stop, 
      Exposure Time, Exposure Bias, ISO Speed, and Date Taken, and of course an 
      image preview by simply moving the mouse over the photo file.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the groove of Charlie Watts.
To download this OFFICIAL version choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v22.30.0001 - 2021-09-29 20:32
    + Preview and Thumbnails: Added XAR to the supported factory defaults.
    * Quick Find Files: From now on the "Find Files" button in the Quick Search 
      dialog *only* affects searches triggered from this dialog. Other Quick 
      Searches are not affected and run normally.
    ! Show Character Table: It returned the wide character ordinal even if the 
      character was part of the local ANSI codepage and had a narrow ordinal. 
      Fixed. Now e.g. "‰" is shown like this in the locale of this system:
        #  char	  dec   hex   utf8   utf8hex 
        1   ‰  	  137    89   ‰    E2 80 B0
      Before, it was shown like this:
        #  char	  dec   hex   utf8   utf8hex 
        1   ‰  	 8240  2030   ‰    E2 80 B0

v22.30.0002 - 2021-09-30 14:09
    + Visual Filters and Live Filters: The verbal NOT-operator "NOT " (or "not ", 
      or "Not ", it's case-insensitive) was not yet supported. Now it is:
        Size: 529 KB or not Ext: txt
        not Size: 529 KB or Ext: txt
        not (Size: 529 KB or not Ext: txt)
        dateM:NOT dw 6-7
        dateM: NOT dw 6-7
        NOT dateM:dw 6-7
        NOT dateM: dw 6-7

        dateM:! dw 6-7      OK
        dateM: !dw 6-7      FAIL!
      Fixed. Now all work.
    + Color Filters: Now the verbal NOT-operator "NOT " (case-insensitive) is 
      supported:
        dateM:NOT dw 6-7
        dateM: NOT dw 6-7
        NOT dateM:dw 6-7
        NOT dateM: dw 6-7
    ! Color Filters: Logical inversion failed when done at the value:
        !dateM:dw 6-7       OK
        ! dateM:dw 6-7      OK
        dateM:!dw 6-7       FAIL!
        dateM:! dw 6-7      FAIL!
        dateM: !dw 6-7      FAIL!
      Fixed. Now all work.  
    ! Custom File Associations: When opening a LNK file with "Toolbar | Open 
      With | Resolve Shortcuts before Matching" enabled, any "Run Maximized" in 
      the LNK settings was ignored. Fixed.
To download this BETA version choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v22.30.0003 - 2021-10-01 13:47
    + Cell Context Menu | Live Filter / Quick Search: If you're adventurous 
      enough to call your columns "Not OK" or "Birds and Feathers" (i.e. with 
      Boolean operators in the name) they will survive Boolean parsing only with 
      escapes ("\"). Now such escapes are automatically added where necessary, 
      e.g. "\Not OK" or "Birds \and Feathers".
    ! SC get("rs"): Got stuck in endless loop since 20210924. Fixed.

v22.30.0004 - 2021-10-02 12:01
    + Live Filter Box: Now you can adjust the width of the box in a snap by 
      hitting Shift+Alt+Wheel over the box. The width is increased or decreased 
      in steps of 10 pixels. Minimum is 40 pixels, maximum is screen width.
      In case you don't have a mouse with a wheel, you can tweak the value here:
        LiveFilterBoxWidth=200
    * Live Filter Box: Now the factory default width depends on the screen width 
      and is defined as Max(140, screenWidth / 12). Before it was hard-coded to 
      140. So with screens wider than 1680 the box will be wider than before.
      Once you set the width by Shift+Alt+Wheel the factory default is 
      irrelevant, of course.
To download this BETA version choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v22.30.0005 - 2021-10-03 16:58
    + Cell Context Menu | Live Filter / Quick Search: Now if the pattern
      contains any Boolean characters or backslashes the pattern is 
      automatically quoted to avoid any parsing ambiguities. Examples:
        Owner: "Vega\Donald"
        Comment: "cat & dog"
        Tags: "!Okay!"
    > FYI, alternatively to quoting you can escape such operators (since this 
      feature is fixed, see below):
        Owner: Vega\\Donald
        Comment: cat \& dog
        Tags: \!Okay!
    ! Find Files and Quick Search: Escaping boolean operators with "\" did not 
      work anymore since 20210312. Fixed. Examples:
        Pattern                 Match
        cat \& dog              "cat & dog"
        cat \and dog            "cat and dog"
        \!cat                   "!cat"
        !\!cat                  NOT "!cat"
    * Thumbnails: New factory defaults for the sizes offered in "Configuration | 
      Preview | Thumbnails | Thumbnail widths and heights". Rounder and larger 
      numbers:
        OLD: 16,32,64,96,128,192,200,300,450,512,675
        NEW: 16,32,64,96,128,192,200,300,400,600,800,1200,1600
      Nothing changes for upgraders. You can always tweak the "ThumbSizes" key.
To download this BETA version choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v22.30.0006 - 2021-10-04 13:00
    + Live Filter Box: You could already use the Backspace key to remove the 
      last character in the LFB when the focus was in the file list and the LFB 
      contained anything. Now you can use Ctrl+Backspace to remove the last 
      *word* in the LFB.
    * Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Show folder thumbnails: Slightly 
      changed the order of precedence when asked which file is used for the 
      folder's thumbnail:
        1.  desktop.ini
              [ViewState]
              Logo=[this file]
        2.  folder.jpg, folder.jpeg, folder.png, or folder.gif (in that order)
        3.  The first image file among the alphabetically first 50 files.
        4.  The first video file among the alphabetically first 50 files.
      The limitation of only checking 50 files is due to performance reasons 
      (imagine a folder of 50,000 TXT files, we don't want to waste too much 
      time on this).
    ! Live Filter: Exact match via quotes did not work with the Name selector. 
      Fixed. Example:
        Name: "Beanie or Cap.txt"
    ! Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs | Minimum / Maximum tab width in 
      pixels: Since 20210628 the maximum could not go below 250. Fix #2. The 
      v22.10.0206 - 2021-08-28 16:08 fix was not complete.
To download this BETA version choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

    ! Color Filters: Since 20210930 Color Filters support Boolean NOT operators

    + Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: Added option 
      "Show hover box only while the shift key is held down". Before, this 
      functionality was covered by "Show info tips only while the shift key is 
      held down". Now the settings are separate, which gives you more setting 
      options.
    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: Reorganized the 
      whole page. Settings that apply to both File Info Tips and Hover Box are 
      now listed in a separate section named "File Info Tips and Hover Box".
    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box | Show tips for 
      clipped tree and list items: Those tips are not shown anymore when the 
      mouse is over a thumbnail.
    ! Configuration | General | Startup & Exit | Open command line start path in 
      new tab: The unticked state was not completely honored. Fixed. Now when 
      unticked the current tab is overwritten by the command line start path 
      unless the tab is locked.
    ! SC quicksearch: Lost its ability to search Paper Folders when "Explicit 
      Save Only" was introduced in v21.50.0133 - 2021-03-08 16:23. Fixed. Now 
      you can do things like this again (no need to load that Paper Folder into 
      the list):
        text quicksearch("egg*.txt /n", "paper:chicken");

Code: Select all

v22.30.0104 - 2021-10-08 20:50
    + Added SC get("find_queryparsed_last"): The old SC get("find_queryparsed") 
      always returns the last-used query in a friendly way, but that's the 
      last-used query of the current list pane. This does not include any 
      searches via SC quicksearch() which bypass the GUI and hence the list 
      panes.
      To look at a friendly version of the very last search query including any 
      quicksearch() you can now use this argument:
        text get("find_queryparsed_last");
        text <get find_queryparsed_last>; //alternate syntax for SC get
    ! Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: More glitches 
      fixed.
    ! Worked on the "Location currently not available" issue. Tried a fix.
    ! Tab Bars | 'Tab List' button: The menu did not show all sorts of custom 
      tab icons correctly in all resolutions. Fixed.
