  • +++ Preview for text files. By factory default the following extensions are seen as text files:
      ahk, asc, asp, aspx, bas, bat, c, cfg, cmd, cls, ctl, cpp, cs,
      css, cue, dat, eml, eps, frm, h, hpp, htm, html, inf, ini, java,
      js, log, lst, m3u, m3u8, man, mht, msg, nfo, nsi, nws, opml,
      php, pl, py, reg, sh, sql, svg, txt, url, vb, vbs, vcf, wpl,
      xml, xys

    - The order of precedence of the various previews is:
      Text > Html > Font > Icon > Image > Media
      So, to preview HTML using the Browser (embedded IE), simply go
      to Configuration Previewed Formats and uncheck HTML under
      "Text" and check it under "Web & Office".
    - For huge text files only the first 5 MB are shown for
      performance reasons.
  • + Configuration | Previewed Formats: Now you can add any number of additional file types as comma-separated extension lists. E.g. to add "*.zig" and "*.zag" files to the previewed text files, add "zig, zag" (w/out quotes; spaces optional) into the editbox below the "Text" list.
    This replaces tweaks that previously had to be used to add custom formats to the preview.
  • * Info Panel: Added shadow effect to the tab headers.
  • * Background Jobs: Improved and fixed a thousand little things. Among others:
    - Pause overlays in the BJ listing
    - Removed Auto-update checkbox (it's now hardcoded to ON)
    - Hide completed now also hides skipped
  • + Background Jobs | Pause queue: Pausing now only affects *queued* pending and new jobs. If "Queue file operations" is off then new background jobs will be started immediately regardless of the state of "Pause queue".

    Further remarks on Pausing the queue
    - While the queue is paused you can still add new jobs to the
      queue. Once the queue is to your liking you can release the
      Pause and go have a coffee while your machine is working the
    - In a paused queue with a couple of pending jobs you can use the
      following trick to manipulate the order of jobs: Choose the next
      job you want to start, and check "Skip Job" from its context
      menu. Then uncheck "Skip Job" and you are prompted whether to
      start the job now. OK the prompt and only this job will be
  • * Background Jobs | Details...: Now position and size are remembered between calls and sessions.
  • * Background Jobs: "Auto-update" and "Hide completed" are now remembered between calls and sessions.
  • * Background Jobs: More feedback on the statusbar when adding jobs and when all jobs are completed. This might later be moved to a self-destructing thing (SDT).
  • * Unified the context menu of TB "Queue" and BB. And fixed a couple of other little things.
  • ! Dropping images from Firefox 3.* was supported by the List but not by the Tree. Fixed.
