v9.00.0203 - 2010-04-24 11:48

BETA versions are now only available for registered users.
Find the download link at the bottom of the License Lounge.

  • + Address Bar (and all other location ports): Now you can launch DOS commands directly through the XYplorer UI by prefixing "!" to the location term. The default startpath for the DOS commands is the current List folder. Use a double "!" to keep the DOS box visible.
      !dir  = directory listing of current list folder
              DOS box will vanish immediately, not very useful here
      !!dir = directory listing of current list folder
              DOS box stays visible
      !!    = simply open DOS box without any action
  • + Menu Tools | List Management: Added command "Recently Opened Items Locations". Here you can edit the MRU list of the Open dialog. (Already in v9.00.0202 but forgot to mention.)
  • * Menu File | Open...: Now the POM is opened "upon" the dialog. That way you see what is about to be opened, and you can cancel the POM while the Open dialog keeps open. The POM is now always opened directly below the "Open with..." button, independently of the mouse position. To avoid a stupid beep the POM now opens on key UP (instead of DOWN) when opened by Ctrl+Enter.
  • * Menu File Open...:
    - The default item after opening the Open dialog now depends on
      the current focus and selections in the app. If List, Tree,
      Catalog, or Address Bar are focused its current item will be
      used if it is selected. Otherwise the dialog opens preset to the
      last opened item.
    - The POM will not show any applications that are defined with XY
      variables (<curitem> etc.) in the arguments. Such arguments are
      resolved with reference to the current list state, and the Open
      command should be independent of the list.
    - Note that in the Home Edition, the "Open with..." button is not
      available (POM is not featured in the Home   Edition).
  • + Configuration | Startup & Exit: Added option "Don't save most-recently-used lists". Check to forget the MRU lists of Address Bar, Visual Filter, Selection Filter, Rename Special, and Open. Note that this setting already existed as a tweak (ForgetMRU).
