v19.00.0313 - 2018-07-07 19:43
    + SC urlencode enhanced: Now you can URL-encode (aka "percent-encode") all 
      non-ASCII characters as their UTF-8 equivalents.
      Syntax: urlencode(string, flags)
        flags: (bit field)
          1 = URL-encode according to RFC 1738 (space => %20)
              Else (no 1):
                  URL-encode according to RFC 1738, except space => +
          2 = URL-encode all non-ASCII characters as their UTF-8 equivalents 
      Remarks:
        Acc. to MS docs this flag (URL_ESCAPE_AS_UTF8) is Win7 (sic!) or later.
      Example:
        text urlencode(<clp>, 2); //encode some non-ASCII characters in the clipboard
    + SC urldecode enhanced: Now you can decode strings that were encoded by 
      using the URL_ESCAPE_AS_UTF8 flag.
      Syntax: urldecode(string, flags)
        flags: (bit field)
          1 = URL-decode according to RFC 1738 (%20 => space)
              It will NOT convert + => space
              Else (no 1):
                URL-decode according to RFC 1738, except + => space
                But it also converts %20 => space
          2 = URL-decode strings that were encoded by using the 
              URL_ESCAPE_AS_UTF8 flag.
      Remarks:
        Acc. to MS docs this flag (URL_UNESCAPE_AS_UTF8) is Win8 (sic!) or later.
      Example:
        text urldecode("%E5%8C%97%E4%BA%AC", 2);  //returns "Beijing" in Chinese characters

    ! Toolbar | Paper Folders | Allow Zombies: Certain file data were not 
      internally reset anymore since about 20180611, leading to wrong column 
      data in the listing of zombies (in fact data copies from the last 
      non-zombie item). Fixed.

v19.10.0001 - 2018-07-12 16:55
    + SC inputselect enhanced: Now you can show line numbers in the list, just 
      pass bit 4096.
      Syntax: inputselect(header, listdata, [separator="|"], [style=1], _
                  [cancel], [width=800], [height=400], [windowcaption], [preselect])
        style: 
         4096 = Show line numbers in the list.
      Examples:
        text inputselect("Test", listfolder(), , 1 + 2048); //no line numbers
        text inputselect("Test", listfolder(), , 1 + 2048 + 4096); //line numbers
      Remarks:
        Before, showing line numbers had been hard-coded to YES. Now it's NO by 
        default, but you can turn it on if you want it.
    ! SC inputselect: Style 256 had no effect when the icons where internal 
      graphics (toolbar icons) referred to by keys. Fixed.
      Syntax: inputselect(header, listdata, [separator="|"], [style=1], _
                  [cancel], [width=800], [height=400], [windowcaption], [preselect])
        style: 
          256 = Show large (32x32) icons. In case of internal graphics: 24x24.
      Example:
        text inputselect("Test", "Delete||:del<crlf>Ghost||:ghost", <crlf>, 1 + 256 + 1024);
    ! Scripting: Some toolbar button keys could not be used to refer to toolbar 
      graphics. This issue concerned buttons with various graphical states 
      (on/off, vertical/horizontal, and the like). Not exactly a bug, but fixed 
      anyway. Now all toolbar button keys refer to a button or a state of a 
      button.
      Note that you can also explicitly show the icon for a particular state of 
      such buttons. These keys are no documented AFAIK, so ask me if you need one.

v19.10.0004 - 2018-07-13 14:53
    + Portable Devices: Added tweak WatchDevices, factory default is 1 (= ON). 
      It controls whether XYplorer reacts on messages sent out by Windows when 
      USB devices or Portable Devices are plugged in or out. On some Windows 10 
      systems there seems to be an abundance of such messages leading to 
      frequent (mostly unnecessary) refreshes of the tree. You can stop this now 
      by tweaking:
        WatchDevices=0
    ! Preview Pane: Since v19.00.0007 audio and video files with no associated 
      preview handler are still previewable using DirectShow/quartz.dll. 
      However, such videos would not resize on the fly on resizing the Preview 
      Pane. Fixed.
    ! Portable Devices | List: Since v19.00.0208 the Ext column shows the 
      extension in the original case. Did not work yet on Portable Devices. 
      Fixed.
    ! Portable Devices: Renaming items did not work. Fixed.
    > FYI, the ellipsis (...) of cropped texts in the list columns does not 
      work correctly in Win10 anymore: The ellipsis sets in too late. This is 
      not an XYplorer bug but a Win10 bug. File Explorer has exactly the issue.

    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: DLog
      Action: Pops a dialog showing the current debug log.
      Syntax: dlog
      Remarks:
        - It's basically a shorthand for:
            text get("debuglog");
          but with a little more information in the header.
        - The debug log does not grow forever but auto-purges
          IF ((15 minutes since last logged event AND > 256 lines) OR > 1024 lines)
      Example:
        dlog;
    * Breadcrumb Bars: The "Windows Theme Style" (in "Configuration | Colors and 
      Styles | More Colors | Selections") did not work well with the colored 
      dropdown menus. From now on these menus always use the "XYplorer Classic 
      Style".

    * Floating Preview | Previews of type Text, Office, Web, and Font: You 
      now have to use Ctrl+Wheel (instead of just Wheel) to switch to the next 
      file. What actually happens when wheeling inside the preview area depends 
      on the viewing preview handler and the input focus. Ctrl+Wheel will in any 
      case switch to the next when used over the title bar or the status bar of 
      the Floating Preview.
    ! Editable Small Lists: Font went small in inline rename since 20180709. 
      Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v19.10.0102 - 2018-08-05 14:28
    + Added tweak to remove all accelerator keys from the main window.
        StripAccelerators=1
      Using this tweak allows you, for example, to define Alt+D as keyboard 
      shortcut for "Focus Address Bar" without conflicting with the "Find 
      Hidden" checkbox (accelerator key = Alt+D) on the Find File tab.
      Note that this still won't work e.g. in the German version where the word 
      for "File" is "Datei" so it starts with a D. In absence of accelerator 
      keys Windows will use the first letters of the main menu captions to 
      accelerate access to them. So, no Alt+D for Germans. :) (There is a 
      political pun in this I won't explain here.)
    ! MLS: Certain strings (e.g. "FRESH") in the main window title bar were not 
      translated right away when switching the interface language. Fixed.
    ! Tabs: Visual artifact when toggling Touchscreen Mode in single pane mode 
      and then switching to Dual Pane. Fixed.
    ! Recycle Bin: Recently there were some problems with the auto-refresh on 
      delete, restore, and empty. Fixed.
