v6.40.0032 - 2007-10-30 12:45

  • * Added loads of air to the Backup operation. App should be more responsive now. Remember, however, that this process is not running in a background thread. If your backup job is huge then simply open another instance of XYplorer, instead of trying to get something done in the same instance that is backupping right now.
  • ! Preview/Thumbnails of transparent PNGs (32-bit ARGB): Finally worked around the known, admitted, but never fixed GDI+ bug that forced me to show transparent PNGs on a black background instead of white, in order to avoid the blue tint that otherwise results from this bug. Took me two full days, yippee!!! And it's not even any slower than the buggy MS original! From the pure coding perspective this is the best code I've done since 256-level Boolean search!
  • ! CKS: User functions (UDCs) were not ordered correctly within their categories. Fixed.
