Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v19.50.0248 - 2019-01-28 14:33
    + Hover Box: Now it supports hovering Symlinks to files, i.e. it shows the 
      targets of those beasts. You need to tick something though, read on ...
    + Configuration | Information | File Info Tips: Added option "On junctions 
      as well" under "Show Hover Box". Untick it to disable the Hover Box when 
      hovering Junctions and Symlinks. This is useful for online-only files 
      stored in the cloud. Showing the Hover Box for those files can trigger an 
      undesired download of the hovered file to local storage.
      The factory default is OFF since we are in cloudy times.
    + Scripting: The following commands/functions now can handle relative paths 
      and virtual paths. Relative paths are resolved relative to the current 
      path. Virtual paths are resolved to the corresponding real path.
      - attrstamp()
      - copy
      - copyto
      - moveto
      - backupto
      - pasteto
      - filesequal()
      - flattenfolder()
      - get("CountIcons")
      - hash()
      - hashlist
      - open
      - rename
      - run
      - runq
      - runret()
      - showhash
      - box
      - highlight
      - sync
      - copyas
      - moveas
      - editconf
      - quicksearch()
    ! SC resolvepath: The new flags value (v19.50.0247) had overwritten the 
      "base" parameter. But, of course, the flag should only affect the defaults 
      when the "base" parameter is not set! Fixed.
      Syntax: resolvepath([path], [base=<xypath>], [flags])
        flags:  2 = the default for "base" is <curpath> (else it's <xypath>)
    ! Hover Box: Did not catch switching monitors while running. Fixed.
    ! Menu Favorites: Too much saving going on when "Configuration | General | 
      Startup & Exit | Save Settings | Save changes to disk immediately" was 
      ticked. 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.

    * SC resolvepath: Now it ensures that the base has a trailing backslash. You 
      don't need to provide one yourself (but it does no harm). So this works 
      now as expected:
        echo resolvepath("test.txt", <curpath>);
    ! Hover Box: Did not catch switching monitors while running. Fix #2.

Code: Select all

v19.50.0250 - 2019-01-29 17:54
    + Scripting: Also the following commands/functions now can handle relative 
      paths and virtual paths:
      - exist
      - exists()
    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips | On junctions as well: 
      Renamed it to "For junctions as well" and moved it upwards to under 
      "Configuration | Information | File Info Tips | Show file info tips".
      Here it controls both File Info Tips and Hover Box.
      If unticked then hovering a Junction or a Symlinks will not show any 
      HoverBox or extended File Info Tip but just the small default File Info 
      Tip (like Windows Explorer) as this doesn't need access to the junction 
      target, so no download is triggered from the cloud. The settings under 
      "Show custom file info tips" and "Extra fields" are ignored in that case.
      This fixes the first attempt in v19.50.0248. Only now any undesired 
      downloads from the cloud are prevented. The factory default is OFF since 
      we are in cloudy times.
    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips: Converted the label "Add the 
      following extra fields if applicable:" to a checkbox and renamed it to 
      "Extra fields:". So now you can turn this on/off with one click.
    + List: Added some extra protection-from-delete for critical system items. 
      It's the same safety belt that has been added to the Tree in v19.50.0235 - 
      2019-01-21 16:49. With one necessary limitation (performance reasons): Not 
      all selected items are tested, but only the first. So the protection is 
      only fully there when just one item is selected. Better than nothing. It's 
      much harder for a cat walking over the keyboard to do a multi-selection 
      than to just hit an arrow key and then the DEL key...

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

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

Code: Select all

v19.60.0000 - 2019-01-30 20:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Maintenance. This is primarily a maintenance release with lots of bug 
      fixes and small improvements, especially concerning the new Dark Mode.
  +++ Disallow Delete By Key. Now you can prevent accidental deletions-by-key in 
      the folder tree.
  +++ Confirm Delete. The Confirm Delete prompt has been much improved.
  +++ Selection Stats. The Selection Stats dialog prompt has been much improved.
  +++ Random Rename. For what it's worth, now you can rename any number of files 
      to random strings. Might come in handy if you make your money as a spy.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of Larkin Poe.

v19.60.0002 - 2019-01-31 16:22
    * View | Calculate Folder Sizes: Now the Size column is always autosized 
      after the calculation is done and shown.
    % Custom Copy: In v12.00.0004 - 2013-01-30 20:53 this was done:
        Generally no per-file progress is given for files smaller 10 MB. Now on 
        slow target media (Removable drives, Network drives) per-file progress 
        is given for every file.
      But now I observed that it slows down the copy process notably, especially 
      when many small files are involved. So I removed it. So now you should get 
      a notable speed up when copying to removable or network drives.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0138.
    ! SC sync: The filter was not applied anymore (since 20180818) for filters 
      that were defined as subfolder names (eg: 7:="-appdata\"). Fixed.

      now features the command "Open in New Tab". Does what it says: Open the 
      right-clicked path in a new tab.
    ! Configuration | Information | Tags | Storage: On "Relative to tags 
      database" when a tags DB was shared (via Admin.ini) by two or more systems 
      with different network drive mappings (same physical drive, different 
      drive letter), tags were not always shown on those system that opened the 
      DB when it was last saved by another system. Reason: The DB was not 
      correctly sorted after resolving the relative paths with the differing 
      drive letters. Fixed.

      time-stamping could get confused about what's a day and what's a month. 
      Fixed.
    ! SC exists: Since a few days ago it returned the current path when nothing

    + Custom Toolbar Button Backgrounds: Now you can limit the drawing of the 
      background to the Dark Mode by appending "d" separated by a comma.
      For example, this defines a rectangular shape that's only drawn in Dark 
      Mode ("rd" or "dr", the sequence does not matter):
        Name: Dark Cloud
        Icon: c4.ico*#F6F6F6,rd
    ! Custom Copy: After copying in the background (via XYcopy) in Dark Mode, 
      showing a report would crash XYcopy with Error 91. Probably since 
      v19.50.0229 - 2019-01-17 11:36. Fixed.

      results to some destination. Fixed.

    * Command Line: In v11.40.0003 - 2012-06-28 10:29 this was added:
        Now real paths that correspond to special paths are auto-converted to 
        special paths. E.g. this command line
          XYplorer "C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Donald\Desktop\Blah\"
        will open XYplorer pointing to "Desktop\Blah" if this is a valid 
        special path.
