Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v19.10.0104 - 2018-08-11 17:37
    * Size Graphics: The colored bars did not cut it. So here's a new solution
      to the problem (the problem: graphically represent a scale from 0 bytes to
      1000 billion bytes within 50 pixels in an intuitive way -- not easy). The
      new approach could be called "Leveled Bars". There is one bar of 12x12
      pixels for each size level (if 5 bars are necessary the bars are 9x12
      pixels to fit within space):
        Bar 1: < 1KB
        Bar 2: < 1MB
        Bar 3: < 1GB
        Bar 4: < 1TB
        Bar 5: < 1PB
      So a file of 500 bytes would have just one bar and it would be about
      50% filled. A file of 250 KB would have 2 bars, the first one fully
      filled, the 2nd one about 25% filled (= 3 pixels of 12). And so on.
      You immediately grasp the magnitude of the file size (the number of bars)
      and within that magnitude you get a linear graphic representation of the
      relative size within that magnitude (the size/filling of the last bar).

To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

:!: 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.

v19.10.0105 - 2018-08-12 17:20
    * Size Graphics: Minor adjustments with rounding. Empty files now get an
      empty bar. Reduced the height from 12 to 10 pixels (values at default font
      size).
    * Tree: Too many unnecessary radical refresh events (e.g. when USB printer
      was turned on/off). Reduced that to a reasonable amount.
    ! Links Folder: In a Locked Tree clicking a Links Folder link will not beam
      you to the target location but lets you dwell where you are (since
      v16.40.0005 - 2016-03-14). If you now deleted a folder in the list, the
      Links Folder was emptied and needed a manual refresh to fill again. Fixed.

v19.10.0106 - 2018-08-12 19:15
    * Size Graphics: Changed from linear to logarithmic representation. Each
      horizontal pixel doubles the size. Works surprisingly well.
    * Size Graphics: Instead of light blue the empty parts are now surrounded by
      a border.

    * Size Graphics: Now the upper half of the bar is linear, the lower half is
      logarithmic. Both scales nicely complement each other and you get a pretty
      well spread resolution.
    * Updated the help file.
