  • * Now, when you attempt to go to a non-existing location you are prompted to create it on the fly. Will also create whole new paths (as long as the drive exists and is writable).
    This means you can now use the Address Bar as a quick and easy interface to create new folders or paths, and go there right away after creation. Nice!
    Note: Since the Address Bar also supports entering files (not only folders) the above service only is delivered when the item in question ends with a backslash to show it's meant to be a path.
  • * Locations: Now you can pass locations in URL style and they are silently converted to Windows style.
    For example, this
    will be converted to
      D:\www\\code\removed bits\
    The prefix file:/// however will pass the item directly to the OS-default opening application.
  • * New style for "Not Found" message.
  • * New style and wording fo "Upgrade Note" message.
  • * Backup operations: Statusbar after completed operation now uses "new" instead of "copied". It's a bit clearer IMO because also "updated" files have been copied. So now we have:
    - new:     files of that name did not exist in target
    - updated: files of the same name were overwritten
    - skipped: files were not copied, e.g. because they were older
               than files of same name in target
    BTW, note that any created folders are not counted in these stats.
