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

  • Improved performance when browsing into an MTP device folder for the first time.
  • Synchronize now works correctly with MTP devices.
  • The FAYT Find mode now works correctly with MTP devices.
  • Copying a zero-byte file to an MTP device will now work (if the device itself allows it).
  • The Folder Formats list in Preferences no longer shows MTP formats if MTP support is disabled.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug where moving encrypted files out of a zip file would still delete the file even if extraction failed.
  • Clicking away from the folder tab rename field now accepts any changes made rather than cancelling.
  • With Navigation Lock enabled, dragging a folder to the tab bar to make a new tab would result in the two tabs opening on the same side rather than one on each side of the Lister.
  • With Navigation Lock enabled, alt-clicking the back button would open a new tab for the parent on the source side but not the destination.
  • Comments, ratings and tags set for folders were not copied correctly even though Opus was set to copy file metadata.
  • Functions like Set FOCUS=Dest that change the source/destination file displays now cause the function to reevaluate its windows/paths for subsequent commands. This means that a function like the following now works:
    Set SORTBY=date
    Set FOCUS=dest
    Set SORTBY=date
  • The file display will no longer take the focus after a directory read is complete if the focus has been specifically given to another Lister element (like a toolbar field).
