v22.40.0220 - 2021-11-11 16:42
    * Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Show file icon on thumbnail: The 
      icon is now shown in the top *right* corner of the thumbnail. Before, it 
      was shown in the top left corner where it got in the way of age circle and 
      checkbox.
    % Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Cache path: Now when you change the 
      path while thumbnails are showing, the thumbnails will not be re-created 
      from scratch but the data in memory are just copied to the new path.
    % Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Resolve cache path from current 
      folder: Same as above.
    ! Toolbar: The "Save Settings" button icon was not always updated after 
      "Save Settings" when tabs or favorites had been changed. Fixed.
    ! Tools | Customize List | Checkbox Selection: This style affected the 
      calculated column width in Tiles views and thereby the number of columns 
      shown. Wrong. Fixed.
:info: To update to this BETA version from XYplorer, hold down the CTRL key while you click Help | Online Support | Check for Updates. To download it, choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: It was not 
      possible to show the File Info Tip over the icon and the Hover Box over 
      the caption. Now you can achieve it by ticking "Show info tips only when 
      hovering file icon" and unticking "Show hover box only when hovering file 
      icon".
    ! Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: Holding CTRL 
      would not always replace a Hover Box by a File Info Tip. Fixed.

    + Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: Reorganized it 
      again to have more options. Also renamed some of the old options. Now we 
      have this:
      - Show file info tips
        - When hovering the icon
          Renamed from "Show info tips only when hovering file icon".
        - When hovering the caption
          New.
        - Only while the shift key is held down
          Renamed from "Show info tips only while the shift key is held down".
        Note: To show the File Info Tips over icon AND caption, you can either 
        tick both "When hovering the icon" and "When hovering the caption" or 
        untick both, no difference.
      - Show Hover Box
        (Same as above)
      Note: When the File Info Tips and the Hover Box compete for the same 
      place, the Hover Box always wins.
    ! Favorite Live Filters: The first favorite wasn't selectable in the menu. 
      Fixed.

    + Added an experimental tweak that allows you to add Paper Folders to the 
      Mini Tree (they will end up as the last children of "This PC"):
        PFAllowInTree=1
      Then you can do, for example, this:
        loadtree("paper:Pictures", 1);
      Note: Don't start reporting bugs here! This is completely unfinished.
    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box: Minor rename, 
      now it's:
        When hovering over the icon
        When hovering over the filename
    ! List: Since v22.40.0216 This PC could inherit the Name column width from 
      other list modes. Fixed.

  *** Preview and Thumbnails: In order to avoid the annoying "Switch to / 
      Repeat" Windows dialog as much as possible, I have experimentally 
      rearranged the order of various methods of image extraction. This is a 
      radical change that affects practically anything with images. The effect 
      on the quality and speed of the image extraction is difficult to predict 
      and will vary from system to system.
    ! Configuration | Preview | Previewed Formats | Categories | Preview as 
      Thumbnail: Items that were listed here but not ticked were excluded from 
      showing a thumbnail. That was not the idea. Fixed.
    ! SC loadtree: The Network node was lost when adding or removing paths 
      (modify=1 or modify=2). Since 20211028. Fixed.
    ! Floating Preview: When panning a cropped preview with the right mouse 
      button you could get an undesired popup menu on mouse up. Fixed.

    * Toolbar: Slightly improved the context menu of the view-related buttons 
      ("views", "viewdetails", "viewlist", "viewthumbs", "dark") when thumbnails 
      are shown. Especially you now have direct access to "Refresh Thumbnails" 
      (that's all currently listed thumbnails, regardless of what's selected).
    ! List: The Name column width could still be inherited across list modes and 
      tabs. Fixed.

    * Configuration | General | Tree and List | List | Show item count with 
      folder sizes: Removed that redundant word "items" from the Size column 
      cells:
        BEFORE: [56 items]  3,290 KB
        NOW:    [56]  3,290 KB
      To compensate for this, you will find further information in the tooltip 
      when you move the mouse over such a cell:
        BEFORE:
          3,368,196 bytes
          3.21 MB
        NOW:
          3,368,196 bytes
          3.21 MB
          56 items (52 files, 4 folders)
      This information is also shown when "Show item count with folder sizes" is 
      disabled.
    * Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Show file icon on thumbnail: Now 
      the icon is placed a little outside the picture if there is space.

v22.40.0231 - 2021-11-16 17:05
    + Status Bar: Now when you hold CTRL and right-click a section you get a 
      mini menu with one command "Copy Status to Clipboard". Lets you collect 
      this data.
      It's an easy alternative to Configuration | General | Custom Event Actions | 
      Clicking on Status Bar | Double-click on status bar | Copy section to 
      clipboard.
    + SC get got a new named argument "thumbs_cache". Returns the full path of 
      the currently used thumbnails cache file if any.
      Syntax: get("thumbs_cache")
      Example:
        echo get("thumbs_cache"); //e.g. "E:\XYThumbs\00aa5de8b596e9448481100523751227.dbits"
    ! Batch Rename: The progress feedback in the Status Bar (v22.20.0213 - 
      2021-09-19 17:44) came too early, during the preparation instead of during 
      the rename. Fixed.
    ! Tools | Customize List | Size Column Format | KB (Rounded Up): The value 
      was not uprounded for sizes > 2 GB. So a file with 4,294,967,300 bytes was 
      wrongly shown as "4,194,304 KB" in XYplorer whereas it's shown as 
      "4,194,305 KB" in File Explorer. Fixed.
    ! Visual Filters / Live Filters: When passing a size unit to the filter, eg 
      "Size: < 1 gb", the sizes of the files were internally *uprounded* before 
      the matching happened, so all files > 0 and < 1 GB would come out as 
      having "1 GB" and not match that filter. Fixed.
    ! Visual Filters / Live Filters: A filter "Size: 4.00 GB" would not match 
      files that show "4.00 GB" in the Size column on Size Column Format "GB". 
      Fixed.
  !!! Cell Context Menu | Live Filter / Quick Search: Holy Moly, this returned the localized 
      column name (e.g. "Taille") instead of the canonic column name ("Size"), 
      and localized units (e.g. "Ko" or "KB"). So it never worked for 
      non-English language setups. Never. Nobody noticed that yet?! Do you 
      MLS-users even use these nice features??? Fixed!
      BTW, this also means that filter and search patterns can now be shared 
      across language barriers. Not bad.
    - The Klingon language files are no longer updated. Not a single Klingon has 
      ever thanked me for this extra work. That's how they are, I know. Now is 
      the time for them to see who they are dealing with.
    ! Show Character Table: The change from v22.30.0001 - 2021-09-29 20:32 
      wasn't so clever. It can lead to mergers (depending on your active code 
      page) where two Unicode chars map to the same ANSI char, which 
      unfortunately happens e.g. with Turkish dotless i which is mapped to the 
      Latin dotted i.
      From v22.30.0001 till now (in German Windows):
        #  char	  dec   hex   utf8   utf8hex 
        1   ‰  	  137    89   ‰    E2 80 B0
      Before v22.30.0001 and from now onwards (in any Windows):
        #  char	  dec   hex   utf8   utf8hex 
        1   ‰  	 8240  2030   ‰    E2 80 B0

v22.40.0232 - 2021-11-17 12:16
    + Quick Search and Visual Filters / Live Filters: Better support for local 
      column names (aka field selectors). These kind of patterns should work now:
        Création: 2021-11-16 16:11:50
        Tipo: TXT File
        Tamaño: 1 KB
        Taille: 1 KB
        サイズ: 1 KB
      Even local size units are now supported (I haven't tested all languages, 
      though; it is assumed that the unit is appended to the number separated 
      by a space):
        Taille: 1 Ko
      BTW, to show the Japanese example above I had to convert this file to 
      UTF-16L, which doubled its size.
    + Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability: New section "Cell 
      Context Menu" with a new option "Use localized search and filter 
      patterns". Tick it to use localized terms (eg "Taille: 1 Ko" instead of 
      "Size: 1 KB") when triggering a Live Filter or Quick Search from the cell 
      context menu. The above enhancements make it possible.
      Of course, you only need to worry about localized terms if you are using a 
      non-English setup for XYplorer.
      Factory default is "on". This feature could actually be seen as a bug fix 
      since it was supposed to work like this at least since v22.20.0209.

v22.40.0233 - 2021-11-17 19:46
    + Save Settings: Now there is a check of the free space. If there is not 
      enough free space on the drive where the add data are stored, you will 
      receive a warning. This is a very good idea as your data is likely to be 
      corrupted and lost forever if saving data breaks down in the middle of the 
      process. If you see this new message, you can cancel saving settings, then 
      create the required free space on the drive, and then try to save the 
      settings again.
      What is enough free space? Currently it's defined by this formula: 10 MB + 
      the size of tags.dat. The will probably be refined later.
    * Configuration | File Operations | File Operations | Custom Copy Operations 
      | No progress dialog on duplications: Today one year ago (v21.20.0222 - 
      2020-11-17 13:58) I added a tweak to define a bytes threshold for showing 
      a progress dialog that would not be shown for smaller byte counts. This, 
      for example, would set the threshold to 100 MB:
        CustomCopyForceProgressFromBytes=104857600
      From now on, when this tweak is NOT set, there is a hard internal 
      threshold of 10 MB from which onwards a progress dialog is shown 
      regardless of the setting of "No progress dialog on duplications".
    ! Custom Copy Progress: The "Used space" bar and data were not updated while 
      a large file was being copied. Fixed.
    * Thumbnails: Now you get an error message when the temporary thumbnails 
      stream file (which is always created, even without Thumbnails caching) 
      cannot be created for whatever reason (the reason will be shown in the 
      message). This failure can be the cause for white thumbnails.
    ! Thumbnails cache: On exit without saving, the thumbnails cache was written 
      when there were unsaved thumbnails in memory. Not anymore.
    * List | Drives Listing: Now the Free Space is displayed with flexible size 
      units, regardless of the setting of "Tools | Customize List | Size Column 
      Format", so that you see meaningful information, eg "2.34 MB" instead of 
      "0.00 GB".
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0177.

    + SC setthumb enhanced: Now you can use it this way to reset a previously 
      set thumbnail:
        setthumb , "";  //reset to original thumbnail
    * Favorite Live Filters: Now only the captions are shown in the menu for 
      Live Filters that have one, not the whole definition, e.g.:
        "Text|Text Files" {:Text}     --->  Text Files
      FYI, the general syntax here gives you two options (short caption for 
      tabs, long caption for menus):
        "caption" pattern
        "shortcaption|longcaption" pattern
     * Favorite Live Filters: When adding a new one (Toggle Favorite Live 
       Filter) it's now added to the top of the list, like in an MRU list. 
       Before, the list was auto-sorted.
     % Configuration | General | Refresh, Icons, History | Icons | In tree as 
       well: If ticked startup will be faster now than before.
     + Icon Overlays: Added a tweak to limit the amount of items that are 
       checked for having an icon overlay (which takes a while). This, for 
       example, would limit icon overlays to drive C:
        ShowIconOverlayFilter=C:\*

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.
