Directory Opus 11.12.1 (Beta)

Directory Opus 11.12.1 (beta) is now available for all Opus 11 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.

Note that this is the first version issued with a unified 32/64 bit installer. Please report any installation problems you may encounter!


Changes:

  • Added an option to Preferences / File Operations / Copy Attributes to copy all NTFS alternate data streams, not just the metadata ones.
  • The FSUtil.Resolve script method can now resolve {apppath|...} style paths.
  • Added basic IPTC support for several tags to improve compatibility with Opus and Adobe Bridge (affected tags are Authors, Copyright, Subject, Description and Title, and Tags). Added a separate Image description column since Bridge has Description and Explorer has Subject and they aren't exactly the same.
  • The Bit depth column now works for audio files as well as image/video ones (note that not all audio formats have the concept of bit depth - e.g. MP3 files do not).
  • Fixed problem with erroneous ghost breadcrumb remaining if you tried to read a non-existent sub-folder.
  • Fixed issue with breadcrumbs ghost paths sometimes not displaying branches that there would be space for.
  • The SMTP TLS option now works correctly. Also added an option to the Preferences / Internet / Email page to explicitly specify SSL/TLS as well as to automatically determine it.
  • Fixed simple Find panel type drop-down not remembering when it was set to the special items at the top (All Files & Folders, etc.) if it was closed and re-open.
  • The ActiveX Viewer no longer attempts to use Internet Explorer or Generic ActiveX to display PDF files by default. Preview Handlers will still be used, if installed, but if you wish to use an old-style ActiveX PDF viewer you will need to manually add the extension to the plugin's configuration. This is to avoid unwanted behavior when a PDF is selected into the viewer and no suitable PDF viewer is installed on the system.
  • Integrated the latest DCRaw changes to fix a bug with a particular Olympus camera model.
  • The Go NEWTAB TABPOS command now works (that is, it now respects the specified position) when opening an empty tab.
  • Saved layouts should now be more consistent at remembering their z-order.
  • The FSUtil.ComparePath method no longer fails if given an empty string as one of its arguments.
  • The Network Access-based Enumeration (ABE) support now handles mapped drive letters as well as UNC paths.
  • Fixed problem in the folder tree where branches under virtual folders (like the profile folder) could stop working if files were changed within them.

Changes:

  • Fixed script commands from being run once for each selected file when they are invoked recursively (forum thread)
  • Fixed problem with Type clause in Find (Simple & Advanced) - it could fail to match filetypes that had multiple classes with the same pretty name (e.g. JPEG Image is "jpegfile" but also "pjpegfile").

  • Possibly fixed intermittent crash with script columns (forum thread).
  • Changing file labels stored in NTFS now works in folders which require UAC to modify.
