Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v19.90.0112 - 2019-05-16 13:14
    + SC tab enhanced: New operation "textcolor" sets the Custom Text Color of a 
      tab. The "data" parameter holds the color in RRGGBB format. Example:
        tab("textcolor", "CCCCCC"); // make the text of the current tab grey
    + SC tab enhanced: New operation "backcolor" sets the Custom Text Color of a 
      tab. The "data" parameter holds the color in RRGGBB format. Example:
        tab("backcolor", "008000"); // make the background of the current tab green        
    + SC tab enhanced: The operation "get" got a new data parameter "textcolor":
        echo tab("get", "textcolor", [index]);
      Returns the Custom Text Color (if any) of the tab referred to by index in 
      RRGGBB format. Example:
        echo tab("get", "textcolor"); //text color of the current tab
    + SC tab enhanced: The operation "get" got a new data parameter "backcolor":
        echo tab("get", "backcolor", [index]);
      Returns the Custom Back Color (if any) of the tab referred to by index in 
      RRGGBB format. Example:
        echo tab("get", "backcolor"); //background color of the current tab
    + Tweak to prioritize "Configuration | Colors and Styles | Colors | Match 
      selected tab with breadcrumb bar" over Custom Colored Tabs:
        TabMatchSelectedWithCrumbPrio=1
    + Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Usability: Added option 
      "Wheel scroll lines (0 = use system value)". Use it to set the number of 
      lines that are scrolled for each notch that the mouse wheel is rotated. 
      Notes:
      - Set it to 0 to use the global system value.
      - The actually scrolled lines will never exceed a whole page. So you can 
        set it to a high value (eg 1000) to always scroll the whole page.
      - The value -1 is reserved by Windows for "whole page", so that's another 
        way to always scroll the whole page.
      - Values -2 and less will scroll in reversed direction.
    * Trial Version: From now on the nag screen is only shown on first run (for 
      information) and on the last day of the trial period (day #30). The 
      current day of the trial period is shown in the title bar instead. 
      Friendly rules.
    ! Recent Location Pins: Pins still bled into the corners of the TPT snake. 
      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.

      node pointing to a real path the jump would go to a real path as well, 
      instead of to a subfolder of that special path. Fixed.

      Panel | Find Files | Name & Location.
      Examples:

v20.00.0002 - 2019-05-23 12:31
    * Autosize Columns: In v19.40.0106 - 2018-12-03 20:22 I decided that columns 
      should never be autosized on startup since the app should be opened 
      exactly as it was closed.
      But, of course, if the startup folder is different from the shutdown 
      folder (e.g. via "Configuration | General | Startup & Exit | Permanent 
      startup path" or via command line) then Autosize Columns should set in. 
      And does now.
    ! Drag and Drop Context Menu: The wonderful "Go To Dragged Item" command was 
      not shown anymore on drops from the outside. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | File Operations | File Operations | Custom Copy Operations 
      | Configure...: The checkbox caption "Log to default location" was 
      rendered in an ugly way when disabled AND Dark Mode was enabled. Fixed.

Code: Select all

v20.00.0004 - 2019-05-24 13:49
    + Tab Switching by Mouse Wheel: Now you can en/disable switching Tabs by 
      wheel. Factory default is ON, but now you can turn it OFF. This is the key 
      if you are into tweaking:
        TabWheel=0
      But there is a comfy way too: Right-click the empty part of the Tab Bar, or 
      the "New Tab" or "Tab List" button, and you can toggle the setting via the 
      new menu item "Tab Switching by Mouse Wheel".
    + Miscellaneous | Layout: Added command "Reset Zoom" (#1081) with default 
      keyboard shortcut Ctrl+0. Use it to reset the main controls font zoom 
      level to the startup values of the current session. Affects all controls 
      ticked under Configuration | Colors and Styles | Fonts | Main Contents | 
      Apply to...
    + Toolbar | Zoom In / Zoom Out: Added a right-click menu to those buttons 
      featuring the new "Reset Zoom" command.
    * Configuration | Information | File Info Tips | For junctions as well: From 
      now on if this option is ticked then a Hover Box is shown for a junction 
      even if "Configuration | General | Controls and More | Miscellaneous | 
      Resolve junctions" is OFF.
    ! Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | Default File Manager | 
      XYplorer is default file manager: The checkbox caption "Log to default 
      location" was rendered in an ugly way when disabled AND Dark Mode was 
      enabled. Fixed.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0145.

    * List | Wheel Scroll Lines: From now on in Thumbnails and Tiles views the 
      wheel does exactly one line per notch. No matter the system value or your 
      custom value in Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Usability 
      | Wheel scroll lines.
    ! MLS: The button "Select Color..." in menu "View | Tab | Background 
      Color..." was not translated yet. Fixed. Of course, you will see the 
      translation only in the next language file release.
    ! Thumbnails: Unrendered thumbs could happen on fast wheeling. Fixed.
    ! Tab Switching by Mouse Wheel: Did not work yet on the 2nd pane. Fixed.

v20.00.0006 - 2019-05-26 11:43
    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | Highlights & Dark Mode: Added section 
      "Recent location pins". Here you can customize the color of the pins.
      Note that color #000000 (pitch black) counts as "use default" and will be 
      reset to the default color #E956B6 on next start.
    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | Highlights & Dark Mode | Recent 
      location pins: Added option "Match color with tree path tracing". Tick to 
      match the pins color to the current Tree Path Tracing color.
    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | Highlights & Dark Mode | Recent 
      location pins: Added dropdown "Maximum number of pins". Here you can 
      define the maximum number of pins to be shown in the tree.
      Note that the actually shown number depends on the number of stored recent 
      locations and how of them are currently visible in the tree.
    * Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Usability | Wheel scroll 
      lines: Now you can specify the number of lines used for thumbs and tiles 
      views. Simply append it to the current number, separated by ; (semicolon). 
      The default value for the second number is 1.
      Examples:
        0     system value for all, but 1 for thumbs/tiles
        3     3 for all, but 1 for thumbs/tiles
        0;0   system value for all
        5;2   5 for all, but 2 for thumbs/tiles
        5;0   5 for all, but system value for thumbs/tiles
    * Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Usability: Renamed "Wheel 
      scroll lines (0 = use system value)" to "Wheel scroll lines". Now you can 
      simply leave it empty to use the system default.
    ! Icons not correctly centered in large thumbnails views. Fixed.
    + Re-added tweak ShellIncludeSpecialFolders (originally added v15.00.0106 - 
      2015-03-15 19:41, then removed v15.00.0109 - 2015-03-16 11:10).
      Set it to 1 to widen the range of "Configuration | Other | Shell 
      Integration | Default File Manager | XYplorer in shell context menu" and 
      "XYplorer is default file manager":
        ShellIncludeSpecialFolders=1
      Technically, if ShellIncludeSpecialFolders=1 then XYplorer is registered 
      in the "Folder" branch (in Windows registry), otherwise XYplorer is 
      registered in the "Directory" branch and the "Drive" branch.
      NOTE: If you want to try this tweak you should first disable XYplorer's 
      shell integration. So you do it in this order:
        1) Untick "XYplorer is default file manager" and "XYplorer in shell context menu".
        2) Turn ON or OFF the tweak.
        3) Retick "XYplorer is default file manager" and "XYplorer in shell context menu".

    % List: Improved the marking of cut items (Ctrl+X) by a dimmed icon. Now 
      it's done on both panes, on tab switch, and on startup. It also reacts on 
      "Edit | Paste Special | Mark Files in Clipboard as 'Cut'" and "Edit | 
      Paste Special | Mark Files in Clipboard as 'Copied'".
    ! Recent Location Pins: Pins were misaligned on higher DPI settings (125% 
      etc), larger font sizes, and in a Narrow Tree (Tools | Customize Tree | 
      Narrow Tree). Fixed.

    % List: Improved the marking of cut items (Ctrl+X) by a dimmed icon. Now the 
      app is constantly watching the clipboard for any changes, so the marks 
      should always be in sync with the state of the clipboard even if it is 
      changed by other processes.
      Note: This works in Vista and later only.
    + Tree: Now the marking of cut items (Ctrl+X) by a dimmed icon works in the 
      Tree just as nicely as in the List. In particular the Tree has learned to 
      show more than one folder dimmed at the same time.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v20.00.0009 - 2019-05-29 15:53
  +++ Clipboard Markers: Totally revolutionized how items are marked that are 
      currently in the clipboard.
      - Before, like in Windows Explorer ever since and still today, cut items 
        (Ctrl+X) were marked by a dimmed icon. However, the same effect is used 
        to mark HIDDEN items. So we have a semiotic clash (Is it cut? Is it 
        hidden? Is it cut and hidden?). Not nice.
      - In Windows Explorer (and until recently in XYplorer) these marks are 
        not stable but silently disappear on location change or restart. They 
        also do not auto-react on changes in the clipboard triggered by other 
        processes.
      - Copied items (Ctrl+C) were not marked at all!
      XYplorer now gets rid of all those issues:
      - Cut and copied items are marked in folder tree and file list.
      - The markers are stable, and they are always in sync with the clipboard.
      - They don't use an effect that's already used for something else but 
        employ a totally new way of marking: The items are shifted some pixels 
        to the right and a vertical fat colored line on the left marks their 
        state in the clipboard:
        - Blue = Copied
        - Orange = Cut
      These are the factory default colors. The actual colors are taken from the
      INI key DragStatusClasses (sections Copy and Move), so they are tweakable.
      Note: Tiles and Thumbnails views don't look good yet. Work in progress...
    % Undo, Redo, Action Log: New versions of the icons for various file 
      operations: New, Copy, Move, Rename, Delete.
    * Undo, Redo, Action Log: The "Move" icon is now orange. Before it had the 
      same green as the "Rename" icon.
    * Undo, Redo, Action Log: The "New" icon is now purple. Before it had the 
      same blue as the "Copy" icon.
    ! Clipboard Markers: Did not update on rename. Fixed.
