Directory Opus 12.19.4 (Beta)

Directory Opus 12.19.4 (beta) is now available for all Opus 12 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 since 12.19.3:

  • NOTE: This beta is being packaged solely with the new installer. Please report any issues you have with it.
  • Change processing in background folder tabs (if enabled) will no longer cancel scrolling and lassoing in the active tab.
  • Fix for crash if you selected a MixMeister .MXM file with the viewer pane open.
  • You can now clear the SmartFavorites™ list via Favorites SMART=clear as an alternative to the usual method via the Preferences dialog.
  • When in coll://, the {sourcepath} code now returns the path as-is instead of coll://\.
  • Improved the way the filter's movie Bit Rate field works, similar to 12.19.3 changes to the Data Rate field.
  • Fixed an issue where the Run a command fields under Preferences / Launching Opus could be cleared if you searched Preferences, and where unapplied changes to the commands were reverted if you switched to another page and back again.
  • Similar to in File Explorer, file infotip text from the shell is now truncated to 1024 characters to avoid problems caused by a combination of the Windows tooltip control not handling large amounts of text properly and shell extensions that add ridiculous amounts of text to infotips (e.g. dbPowerAmp adding complete song lyrics).
  • The Uncompressed Size column now sorts largest to smallest by default, consistent with the other size columns.
  • Added a kludge to get better OneDrive status reporting (i.e. so the status icons can show when a file is being synced). Currently must be enabled by setting bit 3 of the OneDriveBugMitigation registry variable (and bit 0 must also be set, e.g. set to 0x0000000f to enable all the mitigations + the kludge). See the documentation on the 1903 OneDrive Bug Mitigations for more details.
