Directory Opus 11.13.2 (Beta)

Directory Opus 11.13.2 (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.

Download:


Changes:

  • Scripting: Added winver object to the DOpus.version object which makes it easy to get Windows version information from a script.
  • New option Preferences / File Operations / Metadata / Update last modified file dates when setting metadata in NTFS ADS which bumps modified timestamps when you change metadata (e.g. labels, ratings, descriptions, tags) which is written into NTFS ADS (alternate data streams) rather than the main file data itself.
  • Added the Set LISTERCMD=ToFront command so scripts can bring an arbitrary Lister to the front.
  • Updated the default Movies filetype group with some common file extensions which were missing.
  • In the Startup preferences, selecting Shutdown Directory Opus when the last Lister closes now disables Don't open any Listers and automatically selects Open the Default Lister to reflect what will happen. (A Lister must be opened when Opus is run in this mode, since it tells Opus to exit if no Lister is open.)
  • Fixed Windows+E key not being trapped on Windows 10 preview.
  • The Archives plugin now reports copy speed during batch extract.
  • The Archives plugin now suppresses thumbnails and most metadata for video files, to avoid typically large files being extracted to temp for the data.
  • Fixed non-recycle delete not removing the parent folder if deletion of a child item failed once but then succeeded on a retry.
  • Fixed script/function edit control using too small a font on high DPI monitors.
  • Fixed memory leak related to system-wide environment variable changes, triggered for some users at the start or end of Remote Desktop sessions.
  • Fixed location field and grouping of new files added to library folders. Previously, they could show the library itself as their locations until a refresh.

How to toggle display of Hidden / System files

Commands to toggle system and hidden items can be found in the default toolbars:



Or under Preferences / Folders / Global Filters:



(These options affect all windows and folders at once. You can also use folder formats to hide files with certain attributes in certain folders.)

Directory Opus 11.13.1 (Beta)

Directory Opus 11.13.1 (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.

Changes:

  • When using the Folder Options dialog to save a new default folder format for all folders, the formats for Collections, Flat View, and similar special folder types will now be turned on and derived from your new default format, along with additional settings specific to those folders. For example, Collections have the Location column added. This process will also be applied the first time you run this update, but only for formats types which are currently turned off, repairing the problem a lot of people see where they're missing the Location column in their Find Results, and similar.
  • Added focus keyword to the Set UTILITY command, which can be used to give focus to the Utility panel. When used in conjunction with toggle (e.g. Set UTILITY=find,toggle,focus), it will only turn the utility panel off if it currently has focus. Otherwise, it will be given focus first.
  • Added Set LISTERCMD=OnTopOn and OnTopOff commands, to allow the "on top" state of a Lister to be modified by a command.
  • The DOpus.Output script command can now be used to print an error message as well as a regular message (which causes the error icon to flash in the status bar if no log window is open). e.g. DOpus.Output("Oh no!", true);
  • Ctrl-A now selects all in metadata tag (and similar) fields.
  • Fixed checkbox next to a disabled folder format in Preferences not becoming checked if the format was edited, until Preferences was re-opened.
  • The Print Folder dialog ignored changes typed into the output file field if you pushed return while still in the field. (Tabbing or clicking to another control, or clicking OK both worked.)
  • The Archives plugin now supports .xz and .tar.xz / .txz archives.
  • The internal viewer now preserves the selection rectangle through flips (as it already did for rotations).
  • Relative Date graphs were broken in the Desktop folder.
  • Experimental changes for UTF-8 support in SSH.

Directory Opus 11.12.5 (Beta)

Directory Opus 11.12.5 (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 uses the new unified 32/64 bit installer. Please report any installation problems you may encounter!


Changes:

  • Fixed issues with UTF-8 in image metadata introduced in the previous betas (fundamentally UTF-8 encoding wasn't being handled properly for IPTC tags, which now take precedence over Exif/Xmp for some fields).
  • Replaced the Dialog script object's "default" property with "defvalue", and the Toolbar object's "default" property with "deftoolbar", to avoid clashes with JScript reserved keywords. The old property names are still supported for backwards compatibility in other languages.
  • Dialogs displayed with the {dlgfolder} code are now centered over the Lister that launches them.
  • The copy buffer file size is now 512KB by default, since it seems that gives much better results on most modern devices.
  • The Standard Toolbar Highlight and Shadow colors (in Preferences / Display / Colors and Fonts) can now be set as transparent to stop separators being drawn.
  • Updated to version 1.0.2a of the openssl libraries (security fixes).
