Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v19.10.0227 - 2018-09-14 18:41
    + MUSD Menus: Re-arranged the context menu commands for files to a more 
      natural sequence:
      - Open        (Click)        [Default]
      - Go          (Ctrl+Click)
      - Go and Open
      Note that Ctrl+Click is used for "Go" in consistence with the Address Bar 
      (when "Configuration | General | Controls and More | Miscellaneous | Open 
      files from Address Bar" is ON, then Ctrl+Enter is the way to force Go over 
      Open). There is a small price for this: Bypassing CFA by holding CTRL is 
      not possible anymore.
    ! SC obfuscate: Obfuscation of the Address Bar wasn't done right. Fixed.
    ! SC obfuscate: Live Filter Box was not obfuscated. Fixed.
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.

v19.10.0228 - 2018-09-15 13:07
    % Configuration | Find and Filter | Find Files & Branch View | Find Files | 
      Show search information in list: Enhanced the context menu of this and 
      other information bars so that is shows now what you can do with a 
      double-click: Remove the search (or the filter).
    > MUSD Menus: Note these additional options for clicking on files:
      - Ctrl+Shift+Click:     Go in New Tab
      - Ctrl+Alt+Click:       Go in Other Pane
      - Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Click: Go in New Tab in Other Pane
      They are not listed among the context menu commands for files to keep that 
      menu light.
      You need to remember just 2 things:
      - Shift = New Tab
      - Alt   = Other Pane
    ! Tabsets: You could not name a tabset like a special folder (Computer, 
      Links, Desktop, Downloads, %USERNAME%, My Documents, so on). It would be 
      saved correctly but not be found at next start. Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v19.10.0229 - 2018-09-16 18:14
    + Tree Path Tracing: Added experimental tweak to match the TPT color with 
      the Breadcrumb Bars color.
        TPTMatchWithCrumb=1
      It might not only look good but even make sense in terms of user guidance, 
      especially in combination with "Match selected tab with breadcrumb bar".
    ! SC obfuscate: Obfuscation of the Address Bar wasn't done right. Fix #2. 
      The previous fix had some undesired side-effects.

    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | More Colors | Tree path tracing: Added 
      option "Match color with breadcrumb bar". Tick it have the Tree Path 
      Tracing in the same color as the breadcrumb bar of the current pane.
    * Tree Path Tracing: Now the vertical line always touches the top of the 
      tree control.
    * SC obfuscate: The window title of Configuration dialog is now obfuscated. 
      Other controls here are not obfuscated anymore.
    * SC obfuscate: Dropdown lists and similar things are not obfuscated anymore.
    ! SC obfuscate: The list in "Info Panel / Find Files / Excluded Folders" was 
      not obfuscated. Fixed.

Code: Select all

v19.10.0231 - 2018-09-18 11:10
    * Tree: The value of tweak TreePaddingLeft now factory-defaults to 23.
      It will automatically assume this value on upgrading to this version to 
      give you a taste of the new airy look.
    * Tree: Since TreePaddingLeft is now (by default at least) big enough to 
      show the expand/collapse icon at the "This PC" node I made this node 
      collapsible again (which had been stopped in v18.80.0020 - 2018-03-20 
      20:18). It's a useless thing to have, but it's also irritating to show a 
      collapse icon that does not do anything.
    * Tree Path Tracing: The vertical line does not touch the top of the 
      tree control anymore. That was rubbish.
    * Factory Defaults: Now TPT "Match color with breadcrumb bar" and Tabs 
      "Match selected tab with breadcrumb bar" are the factory defaults. Let's 
      throw this new look at the people.
    ! Configuration | Colors and Styles | More Colors | Selections in 
      non-focused controls: Color "Selection Text" was not applied in the file 
      list nor in any other small lists. Fixed.

Code: Select all

v19.10.0232 - 2018-09-18 20:55
    + SC obfuscate enhanced: Now you can set a higher obfuscation level.
      Syntax: obfuscate [mode], [bullet], [list]
        mode: (bit field)
          0 = No obfuscation.
          1 = Obfuscation of all path/file names visible on the surface.
          2 = Obfuscation of all tooltips and dropdowns.
          empty: [Default] toggle 0 > 1, or !0 > 0
      Examples:
        obfuscate 3; //thorough obfuscation of everything
        obfuscate 3, , "Donald|XYplorer"; //thorough obfuscation of the words 
                                            "Donald" and "XYplorer"
    * Breadcrumb Bars: Slightly changed the default colors to have them a little   
      less in your face.
      Tip: Right-click the labels to reset to default colors.
    ! SC obfuscate: When the "bullet" argument was a character list the last 
      character was never used. Fixed.

    * Tree: Changed the algorithm of customizing the tree node indent 
      (Shift+Wheel over Tree). Before, it was a bit strange (it made sense 
      though in previous versions where the expansion icon of This PC was not 
      shown): On increasing the indent some things moved to the left and some to 
      the right. Now everything moves to the right.
    * Tree: The value of tweak TreePaddingLeft now factory-defaults to 4.
      It will automatically assume this value on upgrading to this version
    * Tree Path Tracing: Restyled the snake a bit again.
    ! Tree Path Tracing: Various glitches fixed.

    + Tree: New keyboard trick:
        Ctrl+Shift+DblClick on the white space: Scroll to Top.
      Note that the List does it since v12.90.0012 - 2013-09-20 09:38.
      FYI, this one works already for a long time (20050912):
        Ctrl+DblClick on the white space: Move focused item into view.
    + SC obfuscate enhanced: Now you can pass a flag to toggle obfuscation when 
      the same "mode" is passed again.
      Syntax: obfuscate [mode], [bullet], [list], [flags]
        flags: (bit field)
          1 = Toggle obfuscation when the same "mode" is passed again.
      Example:
        obfuscate 3, , , 1; //toggle thorough obfuscation of everything
    * Tree: The left side of the tree now keeps a stable position when toggling 
      Narrow Tree.

      started to get cut at 128 characters. Not such a good idea. Now (if 
      necessary) they are folded into a block of a maximum line length of 128 
      characters.
    * Tree: The value of tweak TreePaddingLeft now factory-defaults to 0.

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

Download: https://www.xyplorer.com/download.php

Code: Select all

v19.20.0000 - 2018-09-24 15:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Mouse Up Show Down. What about a mouse-driven instant non-invasive Folder 
      Contents Preview that lets you look into a folder without opening it? You 
      can jump into subfolders or open files right from the preview. You will 
      get hooked to this amazing speed booster in a second and never look back.
  +++ Tab Colors. Now you can have the selected tab auto-match the color of the 
      breadcrumb bar of each pane. So what? Well, try it. It makes a lot of 
      sense in terms of user guidance and interface balance.
  +++ Tree Path Colors. Just like with tabs you now can also have the "Tree Path 
      Tracing" auto-match the color of the breadcrumb bar of each pane. It's a 
      small thing but it makes everything look better.
  +++ Drag and Clone. In all small lists where you can drag items to a new 
      position you now can drag-and-clone an item by Ctrl+Drag.
  +++ Remove Search and Filters. The context menu of the Search Information Bar 
      and Filter Information Bar now tells you what you can do with a double 
      click: Remove the search, or the filter. You always could, but now you 
      know.

v19.20.0001 - 2018-09-25 14:12
    % Speed improvements when drawing XYplorer native graphics due to the

      the "script" icon (and some other icons) is shown, and wherever you show 
      XYplorer native graphics using the ":[imagekey]" syntax.
    ! List: Focus always moved to the list when swapping panes (since 20180920). 
      Fixed.
    ! SC obfuscate: The path in the "Location currently not available." message 
      was not obfuscated. Fixed.
