Directory Opus (Beta)

Directory Opus beta is now available for all Opus 10 users.

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

This is a preliminary, beta release. Translations may not be fully up-to-date and some English text may appear in non-English versions.

The following is a guide to the changes in the Directory Opus beta:

MTP changes

  • The folder tree now fully supports MTP devices.
  • Context menus now work for files on MTP devices.
  • Drag & drop (and copy & paste) from an MTP device in Opus to Explorer now works.
  • The Properties command now works on MTP items.
  • The mtp:// root folder, and mtp://device folder now provide columns to show free and used space, and a default folder format has been added to turn these on by default.
  • The SetAttr command can now modify timestamps on MTP files although this is dependent on the device supporting the action.
  • The status bar will now show free/used disk space for MTP devices.
  • A function like Copy {file$} TO ... will now copy the file with its real name when copying from an MTP device.
  • Fixed problems with incorrect filenames being used in recursive copy/moves from MTP devices.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug that could cause the Prefs.oxc config file to not be saved to disk immediately after a brand new install of the software - instead, the file would not be saved until you actually edited Preferences for the first time. This meant Explorer Replacement wouldn't work properly when Opus wasn't running.
  • Shift-right clicking the Computer entry in the tree and choosing the Root Tree Here command now works correctly.
  • If the folder tree is set to start at Computer (or anywhere other than the Desktop), and the Collections and Libraries folders are configured to display under the Desktop item, the tree did not correctly re-root itself to show these folders when navigating to them in the file display.
  • The Preferences Backup & Restore dialog no longer locks the Lister it is launched from.
  • Running a duplicates file search with the Automatically add group column option turned on in Preferences could in some cases end up with the file display's column header being out of alignment with the columns themselves.
  • Fixed display in the Customize / Keys list of Ctrl-A and similar hotkeys when the input language is set to Russian (or presumably to any language that doesn't have those keys on the keyboard).
  • Added exception handling around calls to third-party IFilters, which are called by the Find function to search for text in non-plain text files. This should stop the crash reported in http://resource.dopus.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=18082.
  • Fixed a bug where moving a .zip file (or other supported archive file) into a library would copy+delete the file instead of moving via rename.
