v9.20.0002 - 2010-06-15 14:59

Note: BETA versions are a work in progress and might contain fresh bugs.
You have been warned.

  • + Menu Window: Added toggle "Show Statusbar". So, finally, you can hide the Statusbar. Note that if the Statusbar is hidden then also the Background Bar goes away.
  • * Background Processing: Shell-owned replace prompts would pop in the background (likely covered by XY's main window) when the CTRL key was down when the file operation was initiated (e.g. CTRL+Drag to force a Copy). Fixed partly. Still Windows may take control unpredictably and pop the prompt in the background. The animated icon on the Background Bar will tell you whether a background process is in progress or waiting for input. Under XP you also get a flashing taskbar icon, not in Win7 though.
    The better and 100% safe strategy is to use the right mouse button for such drag operations and then choose Copy from the context menu.
  • ! Running an EXE by dbl-click did not always produce the same behavior as running it via Shell context menu Open. For example, trying to run a 16-bit EXE under Win64 should generate an error message. Fixed.
