Directory Opus 12.19.4 (Beta)

Directory Opus 12.19.4 (beta) is now available for all Opus 12 users.

This is a preliminary, beta release. Translations may not be fully up-to-date and some English text may appear in non-English versions.

This is an Opus 12 update. If you are using Opus 11 or earlier then you should not install this beta unless you want to upgrade to Opus 12.


Changes since 12.19.3:

  • NOTE: This beta is being packaged solely with the new installer. Please report any issues you have with it.
  • Change processing in background folder tabs (if enabled) will no longer cancel scrolling and lassoing in the active tab.
  • Fix for crash if you selected a MixMeister .MXM file with the viewer pane open.
  • You can now clear the SmartFavorites™ list via Favorites SMART=clear as an alternative to the usual method via the Preferences dialog.
  • When in coll://, the {sourcepath} code now returns the path as-is instead of coll://\.
  • Improved the way the filter's movie Bit Rate field works, similar to 12.19.3 changes to the Data Rate field.
  • Fixed an issue where the Run a command fields under Preferences / Launching Opus could be cleared if you searched Preferences, and where unapplied changes to the commands were reverted if you switched to another page and back again.
  • Similar to in File Explorer, file infotip text from the shell is now truncated to 1024 characters to avoid problems caused by a combination of the Windows tooltip control not handling large amounts of text properly and shell extensions that add ridiculous amounts of text to infotips (e.g. dbPowerAmp adding complete song lyrics).
  • The Uncompressed Size column now sorts largest to smallest by default, consistent with the other size columns.
  • Added a kludge to get better OneDrive status reporting (i.e. so the status icons can show when a file is being synced). Currently must be enabled by setting bit 3 of the OneDriveBugMitigation registry variable (and bit 0 must also be set, e.g. set to 0x0000000f to enable all the mitigations + the kludge). See the documentation on the 1903 OneDrive Bug Mitigations for more details.
