Raw Digital Camera plugin update

I've posted a "preview" version of the new Raw Digital Camera plugin which adds support for 64-bit Windows, more camera formats and USB mode.

See my post about it over at the Resource Centre for more details and download links.

The plugin is currently in an early stage. In particular, everything is hardcoded (no configuration) and it always extracts the quick embedded preview images rather than doing a full (slow) high-quality decode. Those things will be improved later.

I figure a lot of people have been waiting patiently for this version, with many unable to use the old version at all, so it's worth mentioning now even though it's a work-in-progress.

I probably won't mention the new Raw plugin again on this blog until a proper release is ready. I'll post more frequent updates and preview builds in the forum thread, so keep an eye on that if you want to be on the cutting edge. Otherwise just wait and you'll find a nice new Raw plugin in a future Opus release in the not-too-distant future.

Directory Opus version

Directory Opus version - March 5th 2009

A free update for all Directory Opus 9 users is now available for download from GP Software.

Bugs fixed / minor changes:

  • Added @toggle command modifier. This lets you change the highlight status of buttons that can automatically highlight (e.g. Set HIDESYSTEMFILES). You can specify @toggle invert to invert the normal highlight state or @toggle disable to prevent highlighting altogether.
  • Added new option to Preferences / Miscellaneous / Advanced called flatview_folder_filters. When set to True this will enable folder filters in FlatView mode.
  • Fixed several drag & drop issues:
    • Drag & drop to Favorites menu now shows correct cursor.
    • Drag & drop to the Folder Tree no longer results in the Lister being locked until the copy is finished.
    • Fixed problem where drag & drop would do nothing if the action was Copy MOVEWHENSAME and the dropshift event was empty.
    • Fixed problem where D&D from a RAR file to the file display border hot paths of parent folders did not work.
  • Fixed problem where key presses were ignored when the mouse was over a toolbar button.
  • Added checks to prevent crashes when using some viewer plugins written in Delphi.
  • Improved support for Gmail Drive namespace extension.
  • Having the {smp3} or {tmp3} codes on the status bar will now trigger a read of extended file information even if no extended columns are displayed in the Lister.
  • Improved handling of drive removal / disk change – Folder Tree should now refresh correctly, and file change notification should no longer be broken by removing and reinserting a drive.
  • Fixed double progress bar when using Clipboard Paste via folder context menu.
  • Ctrl-Z to undo in inline rename mode no longer results in filename being scrolled out of view.
  • Fixed crash caused by inline renaming a file to a file extension that was filtered out by current filters.
  • Fixed "same drive" detection when moving files between two junctions on the same physical drive.
  • Fixed infinite loop if FileType ACTION=dblclk was set as the double-click action for a file type.
  • Fixed extraction of RAR files with encrypted filenames.
  • When defining Folder Colors, selecting folders from the Profile branch of the tree now works correctly.
  • The Owner column now works correctly in the x64 version.
  • Fixed crash in Plugin About dialog if plugin did not specify a URL.
  • Fixed problem with text-extraction plugins not working if they did not specify DVPFIF_CanReturnViewer, or did not export both DVP_LoadTextA and DVP_LoadTextW.
  • In some cases viewer plugins did not receive a DVPLUGINMSG_CLEAR message before their window was destroyed.
  • FTP changes:
    • Fix for SSH/SSL reconnect problems.
    • Fix for invalid initial folder and drop connection if parent also not available.
    • Fix for folders containing % characters in the folder name.
    • Secure FTP descriptions changed after user feedback.
