v8.10.0000 - 2009-06-30 12:00

Main changes since last release:

  • +++ Thumbnails: Now you get thumbnails for non-picture files like PDF, HTML, MHT, EML, MSG, Office, and Video files.
  • +++ Thumbnails were slow in previous versions. Now they are extremely fast.
  • +++ The Full Screen Preview (F11) now works for HTML, MHT, URL, NWS, EML, and MSG files in perfect original size quality.
  • +++ Scripting command Report now supports meta properties like Title, Author, Comments etc.
  • +++ Jump To Item: An ingenious new feature that allows you to quickly spot any item in a large list, just as you know it from your web browser's Find Bar.
  • +++ Improved support for overlong filenames.
  • +++ Dual Pane related bug fixes.

v8.00.0018 - 2009-06-30 10:55

  • * Updated the help file.
  • ! Opening a new Tab and closing it right away selected the wrong Tab. Fixed.

Monday, June 29, 2009

v8.00.0017 - 2009-06-29 21:15

  • + Tweak: This can be used either to get mouse buttons 4 & 5 working (set it to 1 = factory default), or -- if you don't have those buttons (or if they work without the extra support!) -- to turn the support off (set it to 0), save some CPU cycles, a bit of memory, and the atmosphere.
  • ! Configuration | Tags: You could spoil your database by creating Tags with characters ';' or '' in the name. This is prevented now. You get a message "Characters ';' and '' are not allowed in tag names." when you try.
  • ! Mouse Down Blow Up: Images were panned that needed no panning because they were exactly the size of the screen. Fixed.
  • ! The "XY TRIAL VERSION" label printed on preview images in trial mode was moving far too many pixels through memory. Fixed.

v8.00.0016 - 2009-06-29 10:33

  • + Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up: Added option "Full screen". If checked then the blow up will use the full screen (if necessary), not only XYplorer's main window. The option "Shrink to fit window" will then apply to the screen, of course, i.e. it will work as "Shrink to fit screen". Note that these settings apply to MDBU on thumbnails as well as to MDBU on the image preview on Info Panel | Preview.
  • * Reworked the panning alogrithm for blow ups that need to be panned (because they don't fit completely into the view port).
  • * Configuration | Preview: Renamed
    S&hrink larger originals to fit window -> S&hrink to fit window
  • * Dialog "Stepping through a Script": Increased width to 600 pixels.
  • * Dialog "Stepping through a Script": Script lines larger than 1024 characters are now displayed only partly because larger strings slow down the list a bit.
  • ! Window title was not correctly updated when going from Search Results to normal browsing via Refresh File List (F5). Fixed.

v8.00.0015 - 2009-06-28 10:10

  • ! Info Panel | Preview of PDF (and other formats depending on your system): Before the List lost the focus to the preview without even telling you about it. This is over: Now the list steals the focus back!
  • ! Toolbar button "Home" was not correctly updated on pane switches, and on startup. Fixed.

Saturday, June 27, 2009

v8.00.0013 - 2009-06-27 11:54

  • ! Full Screen Preview: Would actually run media (e.g. MPGs) instead of just showing the preview image. Fixed.
  • ! Full Screen Preview of HTML etc.: Wrong positioning of preview depending on setting. Fixed.
  • ! Full Screen Preview of HTML etc.: The preview extraction was stupidly done two times for each image. Fixed. Which means the speed doubled. :)
  • ! With "Shrink larger originals to fit window" unchecked the MDBU for PDFs (etc.) was mis-aligned and too small. Fixed.
  • ! Jump To Item: Would not find item that was focused but not selected, i.e. the item that's right where we are. Fixed.

Friday, June 26, 2009

v8.00.0012 - 2009-06-26 17:25

  • + Jump To Item: Now you can jump upwards by holding Shift.
  • + Address Bar: Now you can do Shift+Enter to open the location in a new tab.
  • ! Startup on pane 2 with only two panes and IP visible would lead to complete freeze. Fixed.
  • ! Info Panel was not always reset when switching panes. Fixed.

v8.00.0010 - 2009-06-26 10:22

  • * Info Panel: Now the max size of the IP is calculated so that at least one list row is visible, even with a horizontal scrollbar.
  • ! Tabs: Fixed drawing glitches where X-buttons would stay visible when they should not, and a hover-effect was not removed after leaving the tab.
  • ! The history of a closed tab was removed even with "History per tab" OFF. Fixed. If the history is global it should not change when a tab is removed.

Thursday, June 25, 2009

v8.00.0009 - 2009-06-25 23:10

  • + Thumbnails and Preview (Shell-made): Now also the following file types are supported: MHT, URL, NWS, EML, MSG.
  • + The Full Screen Preview (F11) now works for HTML, MHT, URL, NWS, EML, and MSG files in perfect original size quality. Even more file types might work depending on your system.
  • + Tweak to exclude certain file types (identified by extension) from the shell-made preview and thumbnails.
    This would exclude MHT and URL files:
  • * Info Panel: Now the max size of the IP is calculated more smartly and takes into account whether it's DP or SP mode, horizontal or vertical DP, and how the top bars are layouted. IOW, there's a good change that your IP can be larger again.
  • % Info Panel | Preview: Now the quality of Shell-made previews is much better, and you can zoom them by enlarging the Info Panel. Also the Mouse Down Blow Up is much larger now.
  • ! A blocked list was not refreshed when the unavailable path got available again. Fixed.

v8.00.0008 - 2009-06-25 11:50

  • * Configuration | Thumbnails: Renamed
      - S&uper-fast thumbnail creation (at slightly lesser quality)
        -> S&uper-fast thumbnails
      - Create &shell supported thumbnails as well
        -> Show thumbnails for &non-picture files
  • * Menu Go | History...: This and similar List-dialogs now got a little "Tips..." button which replaces the tooltip which was just hanging around stupidly.
  • * Going back and forward in history now will skip non-existing or non-available paths.
  • ! Fixed a refresh issue in Tree after deleting a folder.
  • ! A locked Tree was completely reset and jumped to MyComputer under certain conditions. Fixed.
  • - Removed the following feature from v5.00.0067 (2006-07-27 13:00). It's counter-intuitive and has been kind of obsolete anyway since we have Default Tabs:
      Tabs: added another anti-tab-proliferation (aka tab gun)
      measurement. If the current tab is locked and no other tab with
      exactly the targeted destination location exists, now XY looks
      for a home zoned tab where this destination would fit. Only if
      this ain't found either, a new tab is auto-opened. Looking for
      tabs is always left to right.

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

v8.00.0007 - 2009-06-24 22:54

  • + Jump To Item: Now wildcard patterns are supported. For example:
      >*op* will jump to the next List item containing "op" anywhere
            in the name (resp. in the sorted column).
      >???? will jump to the next List item that's 4 chars long.
      >*##* will jump to the next List item with at least 2
            consecutive numbers in the name.
    If no wildcards are contained matching will be from the beginning of the item, i.e. as if the pattern was "pattern*".
  • * Now when you inline-rename a folder in the List, all Favorites, Tabs (both panes), and Tags/Comments, pointing to that folder are auto-adjusted to the new name.
  • ! In a certain constellation a crash on pane switch could happen. Fixed.
  • ! SC new: List would not update when "name" argument did not have the correct capitalization. Fixed.
  • ! Tree, List: Inline rename visual glitch. Fixed.

v8.00.0006 - 2009-06-24 10:40

  • + SC Report(): Added a couple of special fields that will retrieve meta properties from all file types that support this:
      - {DocTitle}
      - {DocSubject}
      - {DocAuthor}
      - {DocCategory}
      - {DocComments}
      ::echo report("{Fullname}: Title={DocTitle}, _
        Subject={DocSubject}, written by {DocAuthor}<crlf>", 1);
  • + Font Preview: Now, when you right-click an item on the info frame you get a mini context menu "Copy Item to Clipboard".
  • * Font Preview: Now, when you de/activate a font by clicking its name on the info frame you get a feedback on the statusbar.
  • ! Menu Tools | Control Panel...: Showed a double Control Panel on x64. Fixed, part 2.
  • ! List would lose focus after right-mouse MDBU on thumbnail. Fixed.
  • ! A little history glitch could lead to consecutive duplicates. Fixed.
  • ! SC tag: did not update the list correctly when itemlist was passed.

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

v8.00.0005 - 2009-06-23 13:18

  • + Spot: Now, when you repeat the previous pattern the spot is turned off again. So it's a neat and cozy toggle now.
  • ! General display issues with font Trebuchet MS and probably other similar fonts. Very strange. Fixed.
  • ! Window Title Bar: [WOW64] was not updated correctly since v7.90.0406. Fixed.
  • ! Statusbar and Info Panel could get incorrectly updated to the inactive pane's focused file on an auto-refresh event. Fixed.
  • ! Menu Tools | Control Panel...: Showed a double Control Panel on x64. Fixed.
  • ! Tip of the Day: Fixed some typos.

Monday, June 22, 2009

v8.00.0004 - 2009-06-22 21:37

  • ! Closing a tab could crash v8.00.0003. Fixed.
  • * Spot: Now it has its own icon (a yellow marker). Credits go to http://led24.de/iconset/ for providing this nice free icon!! Jump To Item now uses the previous Spot icon.

v8.00.0003 - 2009-06-22 15:42

Publication of this update was unfortunately delayed due to complex editing required, and workload of your blog author.

  • +++ Jump To Item: Type ">" plus the beginning of an item into the Address Bar and press Enter, and the focus will jump to it in the List. It's like Type-Ahead Find but done through the Address Bar or whatever location port (Catalog, Favorites, Go To, Scripts, etc.).
    For example:
      >xy = jump to the next item (from current position in list!)
            beginning with "xy"
    Note that, just like Type-ahead find, Jump To Item will use the sorted column (if it is Name, Ext, Type, or Path), when "Type-ahead find uses sorted column" in Configuration General is checked.
  • * Spot: The Jump To Item syntax (see above) was previously used for the "Spot" functionality. The latter is still available but the syntax has been slightly changed: Jump To Item will only happen when the pattern contains no "", which separates multiple strings in a Spot pattern. So to trigger the Spot functionality *with a single string* you have to simply append an "" to the string. Examples:
      >xy   = jump to the next "xy" item
      >xy   = highlight all "xy" sequences in the list
      >xyab = highlight all "xy" and "ab" sequences in the list
  • + Full Screen Preview: Now it works for PDFs, DOCs, and some video formats (MPG, AVI, WMV), using the Shell-made preview images. Note that the shown size is not the "original size" but usually smaller. This is because the shell image extraction seems to have an upper size limit beyond which it simply fails to work (at least under XP).
    Tip: If you rather want to see the raw bytes use Ctrl+Shift+Q (Quick File View).
  • + Overlong filenames: Now calculating folder size works for folders with overlong filenames.
  • + Overlong filenames: Now autp-refresh works for folders with overlong filenames.
  • * Menu View | Caches | Refresh Thumbs Cache: This command is now always enabled (in thumbnails views) to allow refreshing the thumbnails currently cached in memory. Before, it was only enabled when disk caching thumbnails was enabled.
  • * Configuration | Thumbnails: Now, when you toggle "Cache thumbnails [to disk]" the list is not reloaded anymore. It's simply not necessary. All thumbnails currently in memory are kept alive and the visible part of the list will not change. To refresh the visible thumbnails (and the disk cache if disk caching is on) select menu View | Caches | Refresh Thumbs Cache.
  • * Menu View | Caches: Renamed menu items
      Refresh Th&umbs Cache -> Refresh &Thumbnails
      Refresh &List Icons Cache -> Refresh &List Icons
      Refresh &Catalog Icons Cache -> Refresh &Catalog Icons
      Refresh &Environment Cache -> Refresh &Environment Variables
  • * Configuration Thumbnails: Renamed
      &Cache thumbnails in this folder -> &Cache thumbnails on disk
  • * Menu View | Caches | Refresh Thumbnails: Now it's done much smarter, without rebrowsing the folder, and keeping scroll position and selections.
  • + List: Type-Ahead Find (aka Find-As-You-Type) now delays the actual find while the list is still loading, and jumps to the matching item once the load is complete. This means you can happily type in your pattern while the desired item is not yet contained in the list and it still will be found. Of course, you'll notice any difference to before only in extremely huge lists.
  • + Toolbar buttons "Views", "Toggle Details/List View", "Toggle Details/Thumbnails #1 View" Context Menu: Added two useful items:
      - Cache Thumbnails on Disk: Identical to the option in
        Configuration | Thumbnails. As a toggle (checkmarked) it
        quickly shows you whether disk caching is on or off.
      - Refresh Thumbnails: Identical to Menu View | Caches | Refresh
  • % Thumbnails: Smoother scrolling for non-cached lists.
  • ! Thumbnails: Disk cache was not written when thumbnails view (Thumbnails #1, #2, #3) was switched. Fixed.
  • ! Dual Pane: Toolbar button "Folder View Settings" was not correctly updated on pane switch. Fixed.
  • ! History: The wrong tab was selected after opening a new tab and closing it again and with "Cycle tabs in recently used order" enabled. Fixed
  • ! History: With "History per tab" enabled, on tab change the new location was added to the history, which should not happen, of course. Fixed.
  • ! History: After removing a tab, its history remained in memory. Not necessarily a bug, and could be even useful, but it was confusing users so I removed it.
  • ! Mini Tree: There was too much refreshing going on in various situations making the Mini Tree larger than expected. Fixed.

v8.00.0002 - 2009-06-20 14:25

  • *** Thumbnails: Completely rewrote thumbnails handling. No more "creating thumb..." in the statusbar, no more waiting for it to finish. Now thumbnails are created on the fly in the moment they are to be shown. This means, with thumbnails caching off, much faster opening of folders with many images (and other thumbable items). Of course, with thumbnails caching on, everything has
    always been very fast and now it's even a bit faster. There's a price to this (only with thumbnails caching off): Scrolling thru long lists of thumbable items will be somewhat unsmooth because of the thumbnail creation.
  • * Thumbnails: Now the disk cache fully supports Unicode. Before, thumbnails of files with Unicode names or within Unicode paths were not cached correctly to disk and had to be created afresh on each show.
  • + Overlong filenames: Now you can browse and search folders with overlong names.
  • + Overlong filenames: Now you can drag'n'drop overlong files, and cut/copy/paste them via clipboard. Note that currently the move/copy/delete support for overlong filenames is limited to operations on single items.
  • + Overlong filenames: Now you can create new folders within folders with overlong names.
  • * Since v4.50.0015 (2006-02-26 12:40) only up to 256 individual selections were retained between tab switches. This limit is now lifted: any number of individual selections are retained.
  • ! Scripting: A stepped script would raise an error and terminate when you unset the only used variable. Fixed.
  • ! Scripting: Initial empty lines in a HereDoc block did not survive. Fixed.

v8.00.0001 - 2009-06-18 14:30

  • +++ The Shell provides a way to obtain preview images (aka thumbnails) for any file which has a Shell extension that supports this: typically images, videos, web and Office documents, and folders. Windows Explorer's thumbnails are created using this way. Now XYplorer learned to do it, too, which means you will get
    thumbnails and a preview (Info Panel) for PDF, HTML, various Office and video formats, and, of course, all sorts of image formats (many of which are already done by XY's internal thumbnails/preview, of course).

    - The Shell's thumbnail extraction from PDF, HTML, Office, and
      videos is usually quite slow since a LOT of work is being done
      here. Tip: Caching the thumbs is a good idea...
    - The Shell can even extract thumbnails from online content in URL
      and MHT files. However this is (or can be) so slow that I hard-
      coded it away for the time being.
    - Because of the slowness the whole new thing is optional. See
      next paragraphs for how to turn it on.
    - Before you ask: I will later probably adopt the Explorer way of
      processing thumbnails only on demand (when they are shown in the
  • + Configuration | Thumbnails: Added option "Create shell supported thumbnails as well (quite slow)" (see above).
  • + Configuration | Previewed Formats: Added option "Automatically show non-previewed file types using the shell" (see above). For example, if you want to use the Shell preview for PDFs instead of Internet Explorer/ActiveX:
    (1) Uncheck *.pdf in the "Web & Office" list in Previewed Formats.
    (2) Check "Automatically show non-previewed file types using the shell".
  • + Toolbar: Added context menus to "Favorite Folders" and "Favorite Files" buttons.
  • + Menu View | Tree Style: Added new style setting "Apply Highlighting". Turn it ON to apply Highlights and Box Colors. The factory default is ON. I added this option because I sometimes don't want to see all those colors (but keep the definitions).
  • * Menu View | Refresh Tree: Now, when in Mini Tree mode, Refresh Tree (F4) will not show all existing childs of the expanded branches anymore. Instead, it will just take care that all available drives are shown and it removes all non-existing childs.
  • ! Tree: Alt+Click would keep the clicked node as selection although it refers to the inactive pane. Stupid bug. Fixed.
  • ! SC continue: Would raise error when used outside of any loop. Fixed.

v8.00.0000 - 2009-06-15 12:00

Main changes since last release

  • +++ Dual Pane. Look at the contents of two folders side by side. Both panes are multi-tabbed and can be arranged vertically or horizontally
  • +++ Overlong filenames supported. All fundamental file operations now work with extremely long filenames (longer than 260 characters).

Sunday, June 14, 2009

v7.90.0421 - 2009-06-14 19:54

  • - Moved these settings from config to tweak level:
      - Configuration | Preview Don't preview larger images.
        Now here in XYplorer.ini:
      - Configuration | Thumb | No thumbnails of images larger than
        Now here in XYplorer.ini:
      our current settings are retained.
  • - Removed because it does not work with LogiTech mice:
    v7.90.0413 - 2009-06-08 15:53
    List: Now you can open a folder in a new tab by MiddleClicking it; equivalent to Shift+DblClick.

v7.90.0420 - 2009-06-14 15:06

  • ! SC goto could raise a wrong "... could not be accessed" message in find mode. Fixed.
  • * Configuration | Preview | Don't preview larger images: Now the setting "0" (zero) stands for "unlimited".
  • * Configuration | Thumb | No thumbnails of images larger than this: Now the setting "0" (zero) stands for "unlimited".

v7.90.0419 - 2009-06-14 10:11

  • * Menu Panes | Move to Other Pane: Now with default KS Shift+F6.
  • * Menu Panes | Copy to Other Pane: Now with default KS Ctrl+F6.
  • + Size format "Flexible" learned to handle TB. For example 2,048 GB will now be displayed as "2.00 TB".

Friday, June 12, 2009

v7.90.0418 - 2009-06-12 13:43

  • * Updated the help file.

Thursday, June 11, 2009

v7.90.0417 - 2009-06-11 08:42

  • ! Fixed various minor drawing glitches with tag coloring.

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

v7.90.0416 - 2009-06-10 15:28

  • ! Fixed a refresh problem in Tree when unpacking an archive created folders. Part 3.

Tuesday, June 9, 2009

v7.90.0415 - 2009-06-09 22:54

  • * SC CopyItem now sets last target (used by menu View | Go to Last Target).
  • ! Refresh issue when a folder was deleted in one pane that was at the same time watched in the other pane. Fixed.
  • ! Fixed a refresh problem in Tree when unpacking an archive created folders. Part 2.
  • * New factory default for splitter width is 3 pixels. :)

v7.90.0414 - 2009-06-09 11:56

  • + Splitters: Now you can freely change the global splitter width (applies to all splitters) using Shift+MouseWheel over the Tree-List splitter or the Dual Pane splitter. Possible values range from 3 to 6 pixels.
  • + Splitters: Another way (for folks w/out a wheel) to achieve the same as above is a new context menu for splitters, again available for the Tree-List splitter and the Dual Pane splitter.
  • * New factory default for splitter width is 4 pixels.
  • + Scripting got a new command.
      Name:   SaveSettings
      Action: Saves all current settings.
      Syntax: savesettings
      Remark: The command is equivalent to #182 and saves the current
              *.ini and *.dat files, including the pane data.
  • ! Tree: Alt+Click would have the inactive pane "half-focused". Fixed.

Monday, June 8, 2009

v7.90.0413 - 2009-06-08 15:53

  • + Tree: Alt+Click will open the folder in the inactive pane. Shift+Alt+Click will open it in a new tab in the inactive pane.
  • + List: Now you can open a folder in a new tab by MiddleClicking it; equivalent to Shift+DblClick.
  • + List: Now in Thumbnails views, when you change the width of the list (and thereby the number of thumbnails per row), the list will attempt to keep the top-left thumbnail fixed in the top row. Before the currently visible thumbnails would have moved out of sight.
  • + Now shared drives also show the "shared" icon overlays (in XP a "hand") that are already shown with shared folders (unless you apply the NoSharedFolderOverlays=1 tweak).
  • * History: Took back the changes from v7.90.0410 - 2009-06-05 17:28. Too much useful information was lost by discarding the future.
  • * Network: New way to retrieve the display name for servers might solve an issue on certains systems.
  • ! Rename Special did not set the Name column to "dirty" state (which will trigger a resort instead of a reverse sort on next sort).
  • ! Improved auto-refresh of tree.
  • ! Statusbar did not refresh correctly on pane swap.

Saturday, June 6, 2009

v7.90.0412 - 2009-06-06 20:31

  • + CKS | Miscellaneous | List: Added command "Go to Other Location". Goes to the inactive pane's location.
  • + CKS | Miscellaneous | List: Added command "Copy List Settings from Other Pane". Copies the inactive pane's list settings to the current list, incl. column order, width, and visibility, sort order, list style, date and size formats, and view. If necessary thumbnails are created.
    The function also works when the other pane is hidden, which means that you can (ab)use the other pane as a backup store for list settings.
    Of course, this function is only applicable when both lists have
    the same mode (Browse, Find, Drives, Network).
  • ! Fixed various refresh issues conc. the inactive pane.
  • ! Fixed a refresh problem in MiniTree when unpacking an archive created folders.
  • ! File Info Tips did not reset as expected. Fixed.
  • ! List: The column headers text color was not theme aware. Fixed.
  • ! Creating thumbnails would not stop after change of list view since a couple of versions ago. Fixed.
  • ! Refreshing the inactive pane applied Visual Filters of the active pane. Fixed.
  • ! Toggling generic/specific icons in Configuration | Advanced would not reset special folder icons (My Pictures, etc.) to specific. Fixed.
  • ! Mini Tree would not show specific special folder icons (My Pictures, etc.). Fixed.

Friday, June 5, 2009

v7.90.0410 - 2009-06-05 17:28

  • + Menu Panes: Now you can assign KSs to "Move/Copy to Other Pane".
  • * Configuration | Startup & Exit: Now, when you opt to "Keep pane data private", your are prompted (after OK-ing the Configuration dialog) "Do you want to copy the current shared data to the private data store now?". This way you can take the current tabs and history along; otherwise, on next restart, you would experience either a fresh start (default tabs, no history) or, if this INI had private data anytime before, you would start with these old data, of course.
  • ! History: With "History without duplicates" ON, the strategy when going to a new place while being somewhere in the middle of history (= in the past) was to *somehow* preserve the old future (by shifting blocks of history to new positions) -- the results were not satisfying. Now, the future is simply purged -- the common practice in history management.
  • ! Improved auto-refreshing the inactive pane.
  • ! Views menu could be out of sync. Fixed.

Thursday, June 4, 2009

v7.90.0407 - 2009-06-04 15:07

  • + Now both panes are auto-refreshed. This is probably still a bit buggy but the basic functionality is there.
  • * Now the normal TAB key also goes to the inactive pane.
  • ! TAB key pane swapping (Commander style)...
      - ... did not work when there was no other focussable element
        apart from the panes. Fixed.
      - ... did not work as expected when the focus was on a non-pane.
        Now the active pane is focussed when TABbing from Address Bar,
        Tree, or Catalog.
      - Short focus flashes on other controls. Fixed.
      - Focus could break out to other controls. Fixed.
  • ! Toolbar | Open Command Prompt Here: Failed on special paths (Desktop, etc.). Fixed.

Wednesday, June 3, 2009

v7.90.0406 - 2009-06-03 15:30

  • + Configuration dialog: Added new section "Dual Pane" and a few options that you might find useful.
  • + Configuration | Interface Colors: Added a field to configure the inactive pane background color.
  • + Main Menu: Added top menu "Dual Pane", and moved to it all DP commands from menu Window. You know, there's nothing like perfect categorization in this part of the universe, and this way it's utmost easy and noob-friendly. Note: You have to reassign your keyboard shortcuts for these commands! If you think all this just spoils your menu bar because you never use DP anyway: Soon I will add a way to configure which menus and menu items are shown at all -- back to simplicity...!
  • * TitlebarTemplate: Added new field which is set to "[WOW64]" in 64-bit systems when WOW64-Redirection is enabled.
  • ! DP glitch fixes:
      - Lock Tree was not honoured on pane switch.
      - Mouse wheel did not work on pane 2 if it was the only pane.
      - Wrong startpath when closing on a path that was not contained in
        a locked tree.
      - Font size changes would not affect the inactive pane.
  • ! Fixed a glitch with wrong tab icons and a locked tree.
  • ! When maximizing XYplorer by double-clicking the window title bar and a toolbar button landed under the cursor it got pushed. Fixed.

Tuesday, June 2, 2009

  • ! Multi glitch fix.

  • + DP: Now the second pane can be the only pane. And now, if you turn off DP, the currently active pane will become the only pane (before, always the first pane was auto-activated).
  • + Menu Window: Added command "Toggle Active Pane" (Ctrl+Alt+F10). Together with the enhancement described here above, this offers a very nice option even for single paners: You can easily switch back and forth between two completely independent sets of tabs!
  • + Toolbar: Added button "Toggle Active Pane". It not only toggles the active pane, but also shows which pane is currently active -- even if only one pane is visible.
  • + Additional means to mark the active pane: shading the background of the inactive pane. Not yet configurable via UI, but tweakable:
      ClrInactivePane=15266548 (decimal of 0xE8F2F4; 0xBBGGRR)
  • ! DP: Fixed a glitch with splitter positioning.
  • % Due to faster icon retrieval the Catalog and some other lists paint faster.
  • * Network browsing: Experimentally removed server comments polling.
