  • * Configuration | File Operations: Renamed "Process file operations in the background" to "Background processing".
  • * XYcopy: Now, when "Background processing" is ON and "Queue file operations" is OFF, new file operations are immediately triggered in their own fresh process.
    - This option is applied on a per-job basis in the moment the jobs
      are initiated by the user, so while one or more jobs are running
      in the background you can change the setting of "Queue file
      operations" to control how the *next* job is handled; running
      or pending jobs are not affected.
    - There's no explicit limit applied to the number of parallel
      processes, but I assume Windows will let you know before your
      computer explodes.
  • * XYcopy: Now also the various commands in the drag'n'drop context menu (Move/Copy Here with Suffix...) support background processing.
  • * Menu Go | Go to Application Data Folder: This item is now always shown. Before it had been hidden when the Application Data Folder was identical to the Application Folder, but this made support unnecessarily hard ("If you see an item ... then click else ...").
  • * Upgrading Application Data from a pre-8.90 version: Now also data that hang out in Vista/W7's VirtualStore are correctly auto-upgraded to a UAC conforming app data path.
  • + Menu Tools | List Management: Added command "Recent Locations".
    Here you can edit the data which feed Recent Locations, Hotlist, Mini Tree From Recent, Breadcrumb, and Down (menu Go).
  • ! Environment Variables: Worked around a Windows (!) bug where %appdata% is not resolved when XYplorer is started via 'Run As...' for <admin> privileges.
