Changes in this release:

  • Added Preferences / Folders / Virtual Folders / This PC / Drive size units option. Lets you select a specific size unit (KB/MB/GB) for drive sizes shown in the native This PC folder.

  • The Set AUTOSIZECOLUMNS command can now autosize columns selectively rather than only being able to autosize all of them. For example, Set AUTOSIZECOLUMNS=col:name,col:desc to resize just the name and description columns.

  • Added Set THUMBNAILBORDERS command. Allows the thumbnail border flags under Preferences / Colors and Fonts / Directory Opus Colors / Borders to be toggled via a command.

  • Evaluator code in the status bar is now given a variable called dual which indicates which side of a dual Lister the clause is being run for (0 = single display, 1 = left/top, 2 = right/bottom).

  • Evaluator code in button tooltips now automatically runs any @evalalways: line in the function itself before generating the tooltip.

  • Evaluator variables with the name of a function followed by a number now work (e.g. "age1")

  • Added script object HTTPRequest. Provides a simple object for sending asynchronous HTTP requests and retrieving the results. Use the Dlg.NewHTTPReq method to create the object.

  • In script dialogs, button controls can now show icons instead of or as well as labels. The dialog editor has new image and label properties - image specifies the icon name (e.g. #about for the internal about icon), and label controls whether the button's title is also shown. The Control object has a new image property which lets a button's image be updated dynamically.

  • Script dialog buttons can now have their borders turned off (for a "flat" appearance)

  • The Dialog.AddHotkey and Dialog.DelHotkey script methods no longer throw a script error if called to add a key that already exists, or remove one that doesn't. Instead they return true or false to indicate success.

  • Updated DLLs for 7z (24.5) and RAR (7.1).

  • Defining a script dialog with multiple buttons that have Close=true and the same Return Value as each other will no longer causes all but the first button to ignore its resizing parameters.

  • Fixed folder tree content preferences (and a few other things) not immediately reacting to loading or resetting the config via the Backup & Restore dialog.

  • Drag & drop on to background image Preferences now works for images from libraries.

  • Change to how folder tree calculates scroll wheel distances, related to high-precision scrolling.

  • Possible workaround for issue causing Chrome crashes for Chinese users with certain IMEs

  • Fixed for YCCK-encoded JPEG without embedded color profile not decoding properly

  • WebP files are now recognised by file content, allowing WebP files with incorrect extensions (e.g. .JPG) to be displayed.

  • Added support for EXIF orientations (2, 4, 5, 7) that involve reflections (for example, when the viewer automatically rotates an image to compensate for the orientation, it will also perform a horizontal flip if necessary).

  • Viewer status bar no longer flickers while drag-selecting part of the image.

  • Improved menu layout code in certain situations.

  • Improved the look of tall menus when their scrollbars are dragged.

  • Fixed pop-up menu tall enough to need a scrollbar having the scrollbar itself start moving with the menu if certain events happened while it was open (e.g. Jobs Bar toggling because a file copy finished).

  • Fixed folder tree's vertical scrollbar appearing in some situations where it wasn't needed.

  • The tooltip bubble in the Rename dialog that draws attention to the macro builder no longer steals focus from the old or new name field.

  • Fixed duplicate cloud-related menu items showing for shortcuts in cloud storage

  • Fixed some Preferences page titles having (X) type letters displayed at the end of them in the page list when running in Chinese

  • Fix for crash applying custom Evaluator grouping to This PC folder and changing display modes (ID 276).

  • Fixed F1 context-sensitive help going to the wrong pages for the Go and Help commands.

  • Possible fix for crash ID 281 (and others)

  • Fix for scripts running commands against collections. (Also fixes crash 284, 285.)
