Download the latest XYplorer BETA version (v7.90.0400, 29-may-2009).
Choose one: (1) Install Package, (2) No-Install Package (each about 1 MB).

Code: Select all

v7.90.0400 - 2009-05-29 16:08
  +++ Dual Pane. Find the toggle in menu Window (default KS: F10).
      There's also a new toolbar button with a little context menu where
      you have some further layout/behavior options that are currently
      not available elsewhere.
      Things yet to add: Breadcrumbs (also providing a better way to
      mark the active pane), and a couple of useful DP commands ("Copy
      from A to B" etc)...
    + Tip: Dbl-click the splitter between the panes to center it.
    * Window Resizing: Now, you can shrink the window to the absolute
      minimum allowed under Windows. Before, the height was limited so
      that the Info Panel was always fully visible.
    % Despite adding a second list pane startup faster got faster once
      more. Did some cleaning and learned a new trick.
    * Splitters: New more-standard cursor when hovering them.
    * Tweak to increase the width of the various splitters. Many apps
      use 4 pixel wide splitters whereas XYplorer always had only 3
      pixels...
        [General]
        SplitterWidth=[3-6] (default=3)
    * Catalog: Now the mouse cursor changes to "minus" when you drag-
      move a Catalog item to a new position, and to "plus" when you
      drag- copy an item (by holding CTRL).
    * Save Settings operation now with hourglass cursor and Statusbar
      message.
    + Drag'n'Drop now supports the new *.zipx extension.
      See http://www.winzip.com/whatsnew121.htm
    * List | Tags: Now in non-Details views always the "Name column" tag
      coloring style is applied (unless user opted for "No Coloring".
      Before, you could see your tags in "List" view only if you
      selected the "Whole Row" style.
    * History: From now on, if "Don't save history" is ticked then also
      the Mini Tree is not saved. On next startup, the Mini Tree
      defaults to the Favorite MiniTree (if there is any defined).
    * Catalog: Now, the setting for "Use generic icons for superfast
      browsing" (Configuration | Advanced) also applies to the Catalog
      icons.
    ! Thumbnails from PSD files were not retrieved reliably. Fixed.
    ! Tabs: Captions with just a drive (e.g. C:\) would not be displayed
      when the tab header was below a certain width. This was due to some
      weird smartness (aka bug) of the used drawing API. Fixed.
    ! Info Panel: With a bit of luck you could use the drop-down lists
      even when the panel was closed. Fixed.
    ! List: Serial Rename did not work when only List controls are
      visible. Fixed.
    - Removed this tweak (from v7.90.0255 - 2009-05-08 08:50):
        [Settings]
        NSE101=1
      Reason: Didn't bring any improvement.
    - Removed this tweak:
        [Settings]
        NoFindOnStartup=1
      Now search on startup will not happen by default. But contrary to
      the earlier way, now you don't lose your find settings but can
      start the last search with a single click (also: Dbl-click
      anywhere the message field, or press F3 (Find Now)).

Download the latest XYplorer BETA version (v7.90.0403, 02-jun-2009).
Choose one: (1) Install Package, (2) No-Install Package (each about 1 MB).

Code: Select all

v7.90.0403 - 2009-06-02 15:32
    + DP: Now the second pane can be the only pane. And now, if you turn
      off DP, the currently active pane will become the only pane (before,
      always the first pane was auto-activated).
    + Menu Window: Added command "Toggle Active Pane" (Ctrl+Alt+F10).
      Together with the enhancement described here above, this offers a
      very nice option even for single paners: You can easily switch back
      and forth between two completely independent sets of tabs!
    + Toolbar: Added button "Toggle Active Pane". It not only toggles the
      active pane, but also shows which pane is currently active -- even
      if only one pane is visible.
    + Additional means to mark the active pane: shading the background
      of the inactive pane.
      Not yet configurable via UI, but tweakable:
        [General]
        ShadeInactivePane=1
        ClrInactivePane=15266548  (decimal of 0xE8F2F4; 0xBBGGRR)
    ! DP: Fixed a glitch with splitter positioning.
    % Due to faster icon retrieval the Catalog and some other lists
      paint faster.
    * Network browsing: Experimentally removed server comments polling.

Choose one: (1) Install Package, (2) No-Install Package (each about 1 MB).

Code: Select all

v7.90.0406 - 2009-06-03 15:30
    + Configuration dialog: Added new section "Dual Pane" and a few
      options that you might find useful.
    + Configuration | Interface Colors: Added a field to configure the
      inactive pane background color.
    + Main Menu: Added top menu "Dual Pane", and moved to it all DP
      commands from menu Window. You know, there's nothing like perfect
      categorization in this part of the universe, and this way it's
      utmost easy and noob-friendly.
      Note: You have to reassign your keyboard shortcuts for these
      commands!
      If you think all this just spoils your menu bar because you never
      use DP anyway: Soon I will add a way to configure which menus and
      menu items are shown at all -- back to simplicity...!
    * TitlebarTemplate: Added new field <wow64> which is set to
      "[WOW64]" in 64-bit systems when WOW64-Redirection is enabled.
    ! DP glitch fixes:
      - Lock Tree was not honoured on pane switch.
      - Mouse wheel did not work on pane 2 if it was the only pane.
      - Wrong startpath when closing on a path that was not contained in
        a locked tree.
      - Font size changes would not affect the inactive pane.
    ! Fixed a glitch with wrong tab icons and a locked tree.
    ! When maximizing XYplorer by double-clicking the window title bar
      and a toolbar button landed under the cursor it got pushed. Fixed.

    + Now both panes are auto-refreshed. This is probably still a bit
      buggy but the basic functionality is there.
    * Now the normal TAB key also goes to the inactive pane.
    ! TAB key pane swapping (Commander style)...
      - ... did not work when there was no other focussable element apart
        from the panes. Fixed.
      - ... did not work as expected when the focus was on a non-pane.
        Now the active pane is focussed when TABbing from Address Bar,
        Tree, or Catalog.
      - Short focus flashes on other controls. Fixed.
      - Focus could break out to other controls. Fixed.
    ! Toolbar | Open Command Prompt Here: Failed on special paths
      (Desktop, etc.). Fixed.

    * Menu Panes: Added the basic DP commands, "Move/Copy to Other
      Pane".
    * Configuration | Dual Pane: Redesigned the section, added another
      option to Tab key behavior.
    ! TAB key pane swapping and focus cycling. More glitches fixed.
    + SC getinfo got a new named argument "FocusedControl".
      Syntax: getinfo("FocusedControl")
        return:       "A" for AddressBar
                      "T" for Tree
                      "C" for Catalog

    + SC focus got new parameters:

        Action: focus one of the main controls
        Syntax: focus [L|A|T|C|P1|P2|PI]
        Examples:
          ::focus       = focus List (active pane)
          ::focus "L"   = focus List (active pane)

          ::focus "A"   = focus Address Bar

          ::focus "P2"  = focus Pane 2 (right/bottom pane)
          ::focus "PI"  = focus Inactive Pane
    ! Internal Refresh was partly broken. Partly fixed. ;)

Code: Select all

v7.90.0410 - 2009-06-05 17:28
    + Menu Panes: Now you can assign KSs to "Move/Copy to Other Pane".
    * Configuration | Startup & Exit: Now, when you opt to "Keep pane
      data private", your are prompted (after OK-ing the Configuration
      dialog) "Do you want to copy the current shared data to the
      private data store now?". This way you can take the current tabs
      and history along; otherwise, on next restart, you would
      experience either a fresh start (default tabs, no history) or, if
      this INI had private data anytime before, you would start with
      these old data, of course.
    ! History: With "History without duplicates" ON, the strategy when
      going to a new place while being somewhere in the middle of history
      (= in the past) was to *somehow* preserve the old future (by
      shifting blocks of history to new positions) -- the results were
      not satisfying. Now, the future is simply purged -- the common
      practice in history management.
    ! Improved auto-refreshing the inactive pane.
    ! Views menu could be out of sync. Fixed.

    + CKS | Miscellaneous | List: Added command "Go to Other Location".
      Goes to the inactive pane's location.
    + CKS | Miscellaneous | List: Added command "Copy List Settings from
      Other Pane". Copies the inactive pane's list settings to the
      current list, incl. column order, width, and visibility, sort
      order, list style, date and size formats, and view.
      If necessary thumbnails are created.
      The function also works when the other pane is hidden, which means
      that you can (ab)use the other pane as a backup store for list
      settings.
      Of course, this function is only applicable when both lists have
      the same mode (Browse, Find, Drives, Network).
    ! Fixed various refresh issues conc. the inactive pane.
    ! Fixed a refresh problem in MiniTree when unpackibg an archive
      created folders.
    ! File Info Tips did not reset as expected. Fixed.
    ! List: The column headers text color was not theme aware. Fixed.
    ! Creating thumbnails would not stop after change of list view since
      a couple of versions ago. Fixed.
    ! Refreshing the inactive pane applied Visual Filters of the active
      pane. Fixed.
    ! Toggling generic/specific icons in Configuration | Advanced would
      not reset special folder icons (My Pictures, etc.) to specific.
      Fixed.
    ! Mini Tree would not show specific special folder icons (My
      Pictures, etc.). Fixed.

    + Tree: Alt+Click will open the folder in the inactive pane.
      Shift+Alt+Click will open it in a new tab in the inactive pane.
    + List: Now you can open a folder in a new tab by MiddleClicking it;
      equivalent to Shift+DblClick.   
    + List: Now in Thumbnails views, when you change the width of the
      list (and thereby the number of thumbnails per row), the list will
      attempt to keep the top-left thumbnail fixed in the top row.
      Before the currently visible thumbnails would have moved out of
      sight.
    + Now shared drives also show the "shared" icon overlays (in XP a
      "hand") that are already shown with shared folders (unless you
      apply the NoSharedFolderOverlays=1 tweak).
    * History: Took back the changes from v7.90.0410 - 2009-06-05 17:28.
      Too much useful information was lost by discarding the future.
    * Network: New way to retrieve the display name for servers might
      solve an issue on certains systems.
    ! Rename Special did not set the Name column to "dirty" state (which
      will trigger a resort instead of a reverse sort on next sort).
    ! Improved auto-refresh of tree.
    ! Statusbar did not refresh correctly on pane swap.

    + Splitters: Now you can freely change the global splitter width
      (applies to all splitters) using Shift+MouseWheel over the
      Tree-List splitter or the Dual Pane splitter.
      Possible values range from 3 to 6 pixels.
    + Splitters: Another way (for folks w/out a wheel) to achieve the
      same as above is a new context menu for splitters, again available
      for the Tree-List splitter and the Dual Pane splitter.
    * New factory default for splitter width is 4 pixels.
    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name:   SaveSettings
      Action: Saves all current settings.
      Syntax: savesettings
      Remark: The command is equivalent to #182 and saves the current
              *.ini and *.dat files, including the pane data.
    ! Tree: Alt+Click would have the inactive pane "half-focused".
      Fixed.
