  • * XYcopy: Still in experimental stage but improving. You should get
    pretty good refreshing (means almost as good as it always was) now for most file operations. Also the Action Log should be fed again.
    - The new asynchronous handling of file operations made
      necessary a drastic rewrite of the internal refresh routines.
      The best case scenario is that you note nothing of it. But it
      might be that some folder or list is not refreshed as it should
      be after completion of a file operation. Let me know...
    - When you (are so crazy to) terminate XYplorer while XYcopy is
      still working, the job in progress will be finished, but any
      jobs still waiting in queue will not be triggered.
    - Any file operations triggered by Undo/Redo are not spawned to
  • * Tag Find: Now MyComputer (or alias "*") as searched location will return matches from all locations. Before it was restricted to all local drives but excluded floppy, CD, and other removable drives, and network shares.
  • * SC filetype: Now it returns "UTF-16LE" resp. "UTF-16BE" for such files. Before it returned "Unicode" for both.
  • * Raw View: Now UTF-16BE (Big Endian) files are supported when they have the UTF-16BE BOM.
  • % Raw View: Improved the exactness of the load timing.
  • * Installer Package: Removed the "Run XYplorer" checkbox on the finish page. Too much trouble with unwanted elevation when the XYplorer process apparently inherited the admin level from the installer process.
  • * Installer Package: Improved Uninstall. Now it resets resp. removes any registry keys that might have been set to XYplorer using Shell Integration.
  • ! Tree: Inline-renaming a drive via Enter or focus loss would happen but the rename box stayed visible. Fixed.
  • ! Emptying the Recycle Bin would lead to trouble when done while an item in the Recycle Bin was being previewed. Fixed: Now any preview is stopped before empyting.
