Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v25.20.0107 - 2023-11-30 19:47
    + Labels: Now you can create "soft labels". Two new label-specific variables allow you 
      to display all or the first tag of an item in the label column. This means you can 
      have a virtually infinite number of label captions in one (or more) of your 31 
      possible label definitions.
      These are the variables. You can use them right in the list below "Configuration | 
      Information | Tags | Customize up to 31 Label captions and colors", also in 
      combination with literal strings:
        <tags>  = Resolved to all tags (comma-separated list) of an item.
        <tag>   = Resolved to the (alphabetically) first tag of an item.
      Of course, since this is mainly about label captions, it makes the most sense when 
      Configuration | Information | Tags | Label style is set to "Label column (caption)".
      Notes:
      - Visual Filters and Live Filters are supported.
      - Find Files and Quick Search are supported.
      - Why would you use these Soft Labels instead of the Tags column? It looks better!
    * List | Label Column: This change was implemented in v17.30.0005 - 2016-11-05 12:52:
        Before, the sorting of this column was by caption of the label. Now it's by index 
        as defined in Configuration | Tags. First label comes first, no matter how it's 
        called.
      Now that there are soft labels, it seems more appropriate to sort the labels by 
      caption, as most other columns do, and as most users probably expect.
    % Tag Search: Faster. Hardly noticeable, because it was already lightning fast. But 
      the larger your tag DB, the more noticeable it becomes.
    ! Live Filter Box | Highlight matches: Highlighting came out crooked with the new 
      centered labels. Fixed. Now a filter "Label:*Paso" will placed the highlight 
      correctly in a label "El Paso".
    ! Tag List: As of v25.20.0104 - 2023-11-28 21:10 the tag list was no longer saved 
      between sessions. Fixed.
:info: To easily upgrade to this BETA version from XYplorer, hold down the CTRL key while you click Help | Online Support | Check for Updates. If you prefer to download the BETA version, choose one of these packages:
(1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package (for manual unpacking).

:!!: 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.

v25.20.0108 - 2023-12-01 10:56
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0240.
    ! Custom Copy: Processing more than 100,000 items could cause error 9 in 
      the final "Filename capitalization is synchronized..." phase. Fixed.
      BTW, before v25.20.0101 - 2023-11-26 13:10, when using a background process, the 
      background copy handler XYcopy.exe would crash silently when the above happened.
    ! Custom Copy: Error message layout broken in background process. Fixed.
    ! SC tag: The new toggling for labels did not work with numeric references. Fixed.
      Example:
        tag 1, 3:=1; //toggle label 1

v25.20.0109 - 2023-12-01 15:55
    + Tags: Tweak added to apply tags (Labels, Tags, Comments) to the currently 
      hover-boxed item. Very handy together with the Mobile Hover Box.
        TagsApplyToHoverBox=1
      Now, when the hover box is open, any tags command triggered from the keyboard will 
      be applied to the item displayed in the box.
    * Configuration | Information | Tags | Label: Now this toggle option also applies to 
      the Label column's context menu, and to all commands under Tags | Labels. Allows you 
      to switch the labels on and off in ballpoint pen style (apply same label again to 
      turn it off).
    * Miscellaneous | Focus Functions | Focus Address Bar: Added Ctrl+L as another default 
      keyboard shortcut here (in addition to Alt+D and Ctrl+Alt+A). It's the default for 
      this function in many file managers and browsers.
    * View | Tab | Lock Location: Changed the default keyboard shortcut from Ctrl+L to 
      Ctrl+Shift+L.
    * Go | Go to Line...: Changed the default keyboard shortcut from  Ctrl+Shift+L to 
      Ctrl+Shift+Alt+L.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0242.
    ! Color Filters: Fixed some glitches related to the recent enhancements.
    ! Labels: Fixed some glitches related to the recent enhancements.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v25.20.0111 - 2023-12-02 15:17
    + Soft Labels: Added more variables:
        <cmt>   = Resolves to the comment of an item.
        <ex 1>  = Resolves to the Extra 1 field of an item.
        ...
        <ex 16> = Resolves to the Extra 16 field of an item.
      So now you can also (ab)use the Comment column and the 16 Extra columns as 
      reservoirs for an infinite number of labels.
      Note that not all types of extra fields are displayed in the same format as in the 
      Extra column. For example, you won't see pictures in the label. But rating stars 
      work, so you can now use a label to show your rating stars in full color in the 
      Label column.
    * Labels: Searching (Find Files, Quick Search) and filtering (Visual, Live, Color) by 
      Label now supports partial matches by default (no need to add wildcards). To force an 
      exact match, enclose the pattern in quotes.
        lbl:Red         -> match items where the Label field contains "Red" (or "red", A==a)
        lbl:"Red"       -> match items where the Label field is "Red" (or "red", A==a)
    + Floating Preview: The tag bar (right-click the FP's status bar to enable it) now 
      shows the label with caption. A longer caption will be cropped but all or more of it 
      is found in the tooltip.
    * Configuration | Information | Tags | Label style: Style "Name column" now also 
      colors the Label column; there is no point in not doing it. Unless explicitly 
      desired (style "No coloring") the Label should show the labels as they are defined.
    ! Configuration | Information | Tags | Label style: The text color was not applied to 
      all cells in style "Whole row". Fixed.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.175.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.175.lng is uploaded.

v25.20.0116 - 2023-12-04 11:24
    + Scripting got a new function.
      Name: HotKeyShowApp
      Action: Sets or gets the hotkey to show/minimize the application.
      Syntax: HotKeyShowApp([key])
        key: The hotkey to show/minimize the application.
             The hotkey consists of an optional modifier (combination of Win, Ctrl, 
             Shift, Alt) and a key.
        return: The current/previous hotkey.
      Remarks:
        - The hotkey is used to show (restore, foreground) the application when it's in 
          the background, minimized to the taskbar, or minimized to the tray.
        - If the application is already showing, the key will minimize it.
        - The command takes effect immediately, no restart required.
      Examples:
        echo HotKeyShowApp();             //show the current hotkey
        HotKeyShowApp("Ctrl+Shift+O");    //set Ctrl+Shift+O as new hotkey
        HotKeyShowApp("Win+Alt+Y");       //set Win+Alt+Y as new hotkey
        HotKeyShowApp("");                //unset current hotkey
