:off: 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

v24.00.0000 - 2023-01-23 18:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Virtual Folders. Virtual Folders are folders where you define the content directly 
      in the folder name. You can directly "create" such a folder by typing it into the 
      Address Bar. Nothing is created on disk, it's all in the name. And it's super fast 
      because almost no file system browsing is involved. A revolutionary new concept that 
      adds a number of interesting possibilities to your file management.
  +++ Drop Menu on Hover. Now the menus optionally auto-drop on hovering a component 
      separator. No more clicking. Smooth and comfortable.
  +++ Many Other Improvements. See change log.
:info: To easily upgrade to this new version from XYplorer, click Help | Online Support | Check for Updates. If you prefer to download this new version, choose one of these packages: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package (for manual unpacking).

    % Breadcrumb Bars | Drop Menu on Hover: Now the undrop is timer-controlled as well 
      (delay again defined by "Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box | 
      Initial delay in milliseconds"), feels more natural.
    * Breadcrumb Bars | Drop Menu on Hover: If the mouse leaves the bar northbound any 
      dropdown is now immediately undropped.

Code: Select all

v24.00.0006 - 2023-01-26 12:03
    + SC get pick: The "pick" argument got two cousins, "pickall" and "pickdirs". I also 
      added "pickfiles" as an alternative to "pick" for symmetry and completeness.
        pick:       pick all files
        pickfiles:  pick all files
        pickdirs:   pick all folders
        pickall:    pick all files and folders
      Examples (using the short form without get):
        text <pickall>;     //all items, one per line
        text <pickall a*>;  //all items starting with a*, one per line
        vi:<pickall 12.m>   //VFO listing the newest 12 items from the current folder
    + SC selectitems enhanced. Now you can push the focused and selected item.
      Syntax: selectitems itemlist, [flags], [focus=1], [mode], [pane]
        focus: (bit field)
          0: Keep the focus where it is.
          1: [Default] Auto-move the focus to the first selected file.
          2: Push the focused and selected item.
      Remarks:
        Push here means that the focused and selected item is treated as if it had been 
        actively clicked on by the user. It becomes the "current item" internally, which 
        means the Info Panel is filled with its properties, and the Preview is triggered.
        Push only works on items that are focused *and* selected.
      Examples:
        selectitems "Test.jpg", , 3;  //select, focus, push
        selectitems "Test.jpg",2:=3;  //(same)

    + Virtual Folders: Now they optionally support Auto-Refresh, *if* the common path or 
      branch of the contained items supports it. That path is displayed in the Turkish Rose 
      colored Information Bar; if no path is displayed then you get no Auto-Refresh.
      For now the option is only implemented as a tweak:
        WatchVirtual=1

    * SC obfuscate: Some more special characters are now excluded from obfuscation:
        .\|/<>"".,;:()[]{}+-*%^$@?! and Space and CR and LF
      Before it was only:
        .\: and Space and CR and LF
      These excluded characters help to understand the structure without revealing private 
      information.
    ! SC obfuscate: Did not yet obfuscate the Information Bars. Fixed.

v24.00.0101 - 2023-01-27 13:29
    + SC get pick: Added "*_list" variants to pick items from the current list instead 
      of the current folder. This makes picking work in Search Results, Branch View, 
      Visual or Live Filtered lists, or Virtual Folders (one VFO can pick from another!).
        pick_list:       pick all files from the current list
        pickfiles_list:  pick all files from the current list
        pickdirs_list:   pick all folders from the current list
        pickall_list:    pick all files and folders from the current list
      Examples (using the short form without get):
        text <pick_list>;     //all items from the current list, one per line
        text <pick_list a*>;  //all items starting with a* from the current list, one per line
        vi:<pick_list 12.m>   //VFO listing the newest 12 items from the current list
    + SC get pick: Added sort options .s (sort alphabetically) and .x (no sorting).
      Examples (using the short form without get):
        vi:<pick_list 12.s>   //VFO listing the top 12 items from the current list (sorted alphabetically)
        vi:<pick_list 12.x>   //VFO listing the top 12 items from the current list (no sorting)
        vi:<pick_list 12.xr>  //VFO listing the bottom 12 items from the current list (no sorting)
    * Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs | Open new tab: When set to "Next to current 
      tab" doing "New Tab" or "Clone Tab" via right-click from a background tab created 
      the new tab to the right of the current tab. Although it sounds right, I think it is 
      unexpected. It will now open the new tab to the right of the right-clicked tab.
    ! Tabs: Doing "Clone Tab" via right-click menu from a background tab resulted in a new 
      foreground tab with the contents of the previous foreground tab. Complete mess. 
      Fixed. Now the clone remains in the background.

    + Configuration | General | Refresh, Icons, History | Auto-Refresh: Added option 
      "Include virtual folders". Factory default is OFF.
      Note: Auto-Refresh in Virtual Folders works only *if* the common path or branch of 
      the contained items supports it. That path is displayed in the Turkish Rose colored 
      Information Bar; if no path is displayed then you get no Auto-Refresh.
      FYI, this setting raises tweak WatchVirtual to UI.
    ! Portable Devices: When the list was showing a Portable Device path, right-clicking 
      any tree folder popped a reduced menu as if that folder was on a Portable Device. 
      Fixed.
    ! Native Context Menu | Metadata: Didn't work with items on Portable Devices. Fixed.

    * SC get pick: Renamed switch "s" (*s*ort alphabetically) to "n" (sort by *n*ame).
      Examples (using the short form without get):
        vi:<pick 12.n>   //VFO listing the first (ABC) 12 files from the current folder
        vi:<pick 12.nr>  //VFO listing the last (ABC) 12 files from the current folder
    ! Network: Since 20230108, network browsing via the List failed on systems without a 
      Links or OneDrive folder. Fixed.
    ! Custom File Icons: This and various other contexts could not handle drive-less paths 
      anymore (eg "\Windows\") on systems without a Links or OneDrive folder. Fixed.
    > Concerning the above seemingly bizarre bugs: A certain fundamental routine did not expect 
      that the variable pointing to the Links or OneDrive folder could ever be completely 
      empty. This failure could surface in surprising places. It's fixed now.
