Directory Opus version (Beta)

This is an Opus Beta release only. If you aren't comfortable running the very latest version of Opus then you may like to wait for the next stable/public release.

Directory Opus is available now for all Opus 10 users:

This is a preliminary, beta release. It fixes a number of issues reported since the release of Directory Opus 10:
  • Back by popular demand - the "don't sort new files" option has been reintroduced. It is now found in Prefs -> Misc -> Advanced, called "no_sort_new_files". Note that if you had the old option turned on in your config them the new option should be set automatically.
  • Reinstated the 'File display border Up button does "Up Back"' option.
  • Color Picker lets you type color numbers, and has buttons to copy/paste colours, as well as toggle between hex and decimal.
  • Complete jumbo icon support in thumbnails mode. (256x256 icons on vista above)
  • New camera raw plugin with support for new cameras and improved support for some existing cameras.
  • Fixed some issues with raw photos being rotated incorrectly.
  • FIX: Tree sorting with localized names disabled now correctly sorts uses the "real" names
  • FIX: Toolbar buttons now enabled when files are selected in virtual folders (e.g. recycle bin)
  • FIX: Resource leak in Copy progress dialog
  • FIX: Libraries don't support delete to Recycle Bin
  • FIX: It was possible to cause a crash by holding down the F5 key to generate multiple refreshes simultaneously
  • FIX: Windows XP - Virtual folders don't repaint properly when tree is resized
  • FIX: Prefs up/down page button state (enable/disable) was not updated after changing pages with the buttons themselves or with the back/forward media keys.
  • FIX: Cursor key scrolling goes wrong in List mode with thin window.
  • FIX: Left/Right cursor keys jump incorrect number of files in list (and vertical tile) view mode
  • FIX: When a sub-collection is renamed and the parent collection refreshed, the renamed sub-collection disappears from the display
  • FIX: Fixed a crash that could occur when generating thumbnails or extracting metadata from images with XMP tags
  • FIX: CD case coverart image can now scale to full thumbnail size if user has increased maximum thumbnail size above 256
  • FIX: In details/power mode, with 1 pixel of extra line spacing, gridlines turned on and a colour set for the sort column, the gridlines were not displayed in the sort column
  • FIX: Problems with the "Select Folder" dialog and libraries (would show an internal library path in the text field, rather than a "user-friendly" path, if you selected a library folder from the tree it would always ask you to create a new folder, and create new folder didn't work)
  • FIX: AudioTags plugin now recognises more non-iTunes AAC format variations.
  • FIX: 100% CPU usage caused by entering folder with malformed EXE (DivxInstaller.exe).
  • FIX: Power mode inline rename via long-click was broken
  • FIX: Rename from the folder tree context menu did not activate inline rename, but instead opened the rename dialog
  • FIX: A context menu command like 'Open in New folder tab' did not work properly from the tree
  • FIX: If the system "short date" format had spaces in it, date/time column rendering was jumbled.
  • FIX: Date/time columns now display ... at the left if the string is too wide for the column
  • FIX: With a certain combination of tree options, accessing a user folder like My Pictures that had been moved from its default location could sometimes result in the tree entering an endless rebuild loop
  • FIX: Workaround for crash caused by UltraCompare illegally broadcasting messages in the WM_APP range when started.
  • FIX: Windows Search integration sometimes didn't work on Vista
  • FIX: Go "@site//path/to/subdir" didn't respect SSL/SSH settings for FTP addressbook entry
  • FIX: Icon modes sometimes tracked the wrong item under the mouse.
  • FIX: Viewer Next/Prev list didn't work in libraries.
  • FIX: Could no longer paste clipboard images directly into FTP sites.
  • FIX: Disconnected network drives were not shown in My Computer or drive toolbars
  • FIX: Fixed two rendering issues with full row, themes + extra line spacing
  • FIX: Fix crash with particular exe being misidentified as a zip file
  • FIX: Folder Tabs now draw unthemed if their colors are overridden. No longer blended with the theme.
  • FIX: Fixed shell folder thumbnails within libraries.
  • FIX: Folder Tree selection colour was blended to the standard window color, rather than the tree's actual background which may be different.
