This is a preliminary, beta release. It fixes a number of issues reported since the release of Directory Opus 10.

Because this is beta version, translations may not be fully up-to-date and some English text may appear in non-English versions.

New features and minor changes:

[ul][li]Added options to Preferences / Display / Colors and Fonts / File display background to define different background colors when the quick filter is active in the file display.[/li]
[li]The Filter Bar file extension drop-down now hides extensions that are hidden by other filters (e.g. the Folder Format filters), and also shows a file count alongside each extension.[/li]
[li]The breadcrumbs field now takes a “focus” argument which, when combined with “left”, “right” or “dest”, gives focus to the file display in question.[/li]
[li]Added Set FOLDERTREESIZE command to adjust the size of the folder tree from a button or hotkey.[/li]
[li]Added Preferences / Viewer / Standalone Viewer / Show full file path in window title option.[/li]
[li]Added FOURCC column for movie files.[/li]
[li]It is now possible to assign a hotkey to a menu (to pop the menu open by pressing the key).[/li]
[li]Added Go TABLIST command to produce a dynamic list of folder tabs.[/li]
[li]Added Keep folders at top when grouped option to Folder Options. Also added Set GROUPFOLDERSATTOP command to allow this flag to be changed from a button or hotkey.[/li]
[li]Control + Mouse-wheel now zooms in/out in the viewer pane (consistent with the standalone viewer).[/li][/ul]

Bug fixes:

[ul][li]If all tabs are locked, opening an http URL (e.g. via the Favorites system) no longer results in an unnecessary tab being opened.[/li]
[li]Fixed a number of refresh/redraw issues when changing cosmetic toolbar options through the Customize dialog when sub-menus are open.[/li]
[li]Menu text color is now only inherited from the parent toolbar when the background image or background color is as well (fixes hard-to-read menu text with certain toolbar color configurations).[/li]
[li]Fixed bug where Opus would insert random characters into a command if you used a variable but did not include the closing brace (e.g. “{$test”).[/li]
[li]FTP address book entries with an ampersand (&) in their name would not connect according to the saved settings (e.g. SSH would be ignored).[/li]
[li]Copying NTFS file descriptions did not work when the source file was in a library.[/li]
[li]Fixed bug with right-dragdrop menu when dragging from a library to a normal folder.[/li]
[li]Fixed problem with the names of user-configured folders in the JumpList being incorrectly split at a : or \ character.[/li]
[li]Fixed horizontal page scrolling problem in List mode.[/li]
[li]Metadata panel date/time fields did not render their focus rectangles properly.[/li]
[li]Fixed a problem with the update checker that could potentially cause it to never finish downloading the update.[/li]
[li]Using the Clipboard COPYNAMES command on a library file that had been added to a collection (e.g. via a search) would result in the internal Opus lib:// path being copied to the clipboard instead of the real file path.[/li]
[li]Pasting a UNC file path into the location field would result in an error.[/li]
[li]An advanced filter (e.g. when used with the Find command) would incorrectly fail if it contained a regex “contains” clause that failed, even if other clauses would have matched.[/li]
[li]With the duplicate file finder, if both a folder and a child directory of that folder had been added to the list of paths to search, Opus would incorrectly return single non-matching files in the results.[/li]
[li]Dropping files onto folders in the breadcrumbs control could incorrectly run the “dropshift” or “dropctrl” actions even if those keys were not held down.[/li]
[li]Fixed a bug which prevented some metadata being displayed for movie files.[/li][/ul]

Known issue with this beta version:

[ul][li](Update: If you re-download the beta, this is fixed.) Opus will crash if you close the Customize window while a three-button is expanded for editing. We’ll fix that in the next update.[/li][/ul]
