Directory Opus 11.10.3 (Beta)

Directory Opus 11.10.3 (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.

32-bit version:    Universal    Deutsch
64-bit version:    Universal    Deutsch

Changes:

  • Added an option to Preferences / Internet / Email to use an SSL/TLS connection (enforced for gmail).
  • The Zip Self-Extracting Archive maker now lets you select files other than executables as the file to be auto-run after extraction.
  • When extracting self-extracting archives made with Opus, you can now specify a destination folder where multiple folder levels need to be created. Previously, at most one destination folder level would be created (in addition to any folders inside the archive itself).
  • Fixed some folder tree notification issues to do with folders that appear twice in the tree (e.g. virtual Documents under Computer, and the real Documents folder). Previously it was possible for notifications to only be processed for the first instance. Also fixed bug with notifications on the desktop not working if the desktop had been moved to a child of a junction point (e.g. junction from a->b, desktop moved to b\Desktop rather than a\Desktop).
  • Added format_explain property to the Format scripting object.
  • The script Format.columns collection now returns the proper names for script columns rather than internal IDs.

32-bit version:    Universal    Deutsch

Changes:

  • The Go TABPOS argument can now be used together with NEWTAB to control where the newly-opened tab is positioned.
  • Added support for PSD (Photoshop) images containing 1-bit-per-pixel bitmaps.
  • Empty elements of Vector objects in persistent script variables are now saved.
  • Fixed a problem where having MTP devices shown on the Drives toolbar could cause issues like crashes or duplicated buttons.

  • Fixed errors when trying to add files or folders directly below the root of a drive to a RAR archive.
  • Non-system global hotkeys can now be assigned to the Launch App 1, Launch App 2 and Launch Media Select keys, on keyboards that have them, provided the keyboard drivers give applications a chance to intercept them (not all drivers do with those keys).

Directory Opus 11.8.4 (Beta)

Directory Opus 11.8.4 (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.

32-bit version:    Universal    Deutsch

Changes:

  • If you paste multiple lines into the Create Folder dialog, and it's in single-line mode, it now automatically switches to multi-line mode.
  • Fix for image file metadata showing the Subject value for Title as well, if no Title value was set. (This was due to behavior in Windows itself, which you can still see in Explorer.)
  • Label/wildcard filters added to a tab's format in the Preferences Tab Groups page weren't being saved.
  • DOpus.Listers.LastActive is now a method that always returns the most recent last active Lister rather than a property that's initialised once and then never updated.
  • Improved Explorer Replacement to work with Everything's Open Path context menu command.

Directory Opus 11.8.3 (Beta)

Directory Opus 11.8.3 (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.

32-bit version:    Universal    Deutsch
64-bit version:    Universal    Deutsch

Changes:

  • The support added in 11.7 for Access Based Enumeration on network shares caused delays for some users; the check Opus performs for this has been moved to a background thread which should eliminate this problem.
  • In a script, calling DOpus.Listers.count now works (and returns 0) if there are no Listers open.
  • Persistent script variables are now properly saved if they contain vectors and the vectors are modified without any other variables being changed.
  • Path completion pop-up no longer adds a backslash to the end of the path if you click a file. (Only affects a handful of cases, since usually only folders are listed.)
  • Find / Advanced path clauses now disable path completion when in regular expression mode, since it got in the way of typing expressions.
  • Fixed the File Type editor's handling of pasted commands where the program path was quoted and had arguments after it.
  • Fixed problem with Filters that use script columns not correctly remembering the specified column.
  • The Go TABSELECT=prev command should now work in all cases.

Directory Opus 11.8.2 (Beta)

Directory Opus 11.8.2 (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.

32-bit version:    Universal    Deutsch
64-bit version:    Universal    Deutsch

Changes:

  • The ScriptInitData object now has a new log_prefix property that lets a script configure the prefix for its log output.
  • Persistent script variables can now save and load things like Vector objects used as members of other Vector objects.
  • The default File Display Border toolbar now includes the USEQUALKEYS argument on the Go up/back/forward buttons, so that you can e.g. Ctrl+Click on the Up button to open the parent folder in the other file display (the same behaviour as the static file display border buttons has always had).
  • The inline rename feature to copy the name from the previous and next items in the list is now accessed from Ctrl+Shift+Up and Ctrl+Shift+Down instead of the old Ctrl-' and Ctrl-; keys, to avoid problems with non-English keyboards.
  • Added the %headeritem% environment variable which is set for functions that are run from the column header context menu. This lets them identify the index of the column header. The command Set COLUMNSTOGGLE=columnlist,insert on the column header context menu makes use of this to auto-generate Set COLUMNSTOGGLE commands that use %headeritem% to position the new column after the clicked item rather than at the end.
  • Fixed window going unresponsive if Chinese language was used and the Prevent automatic loading banner was triggered for an inactive folder tab.
  • Fixed a bug in the Duplicate Files tool where, if the folders to search were chosen in a particular way, it would not do the search. (The progress dialog could display "yes" or a collection path instead of the path to be searched.)
  • Setting the registry value HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\ (DWORD) NetworkABE = 0 disables the network Access Based Enumeration support that was added in the previous version (this is to allow testing for a potential problem - if it does turn out that the ABE support causes issues this will move to a proper configuration option in the future).
