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:

Bug fixes

  • Fixed problem with Go BACK not properly setting the start of the range selection with some combination of settings.
  • Dragging a linked tab out to the desktop (or selecting Split as New Lister from the context menu) now clears the link state of the tab when it opens in the new Lister.
  • Fixed problem that could prevent control-hover from selecting files (with single click mode enabled) if certain toolbar commands were present.
  • Improved performance of path completion (particularly on network paths).
  • Fixed problem with the breadcrumbs drop-down not correctly showing all drives (if the hideempty option was set) on program startup.
  • Fixed USB export failing with "access denied" error if certain files on the USB export had been set hidden or read-only.
  • The fix for drag-and-drop from Gmail to Opus, added in the previous beta for the file display, has now been implemented everywhere else (folder tree, folder tabs, breadcrumbs, FDB hot-paths, toolbar go-buttons).
  • Menus opened from the keyboard (e.g. the context menu key) now display accelerator keys.
  • Fixed a problem when adding files to a zip file created using the OEM code page rather than UTF-8 (e.g. with Chinese filenames) - new filenames would be added using UTF8 which seems to cause the names of existing files in the archive to be garbled. It seems that mixing UTF8 and OEM filenames in the one zip file doesn't work properly.
  • Fixed a problem when opening zip files created using OEM code page rather than UTF8 - filenames containing e.g. Chinese characters could end up with garbage on the end of them.
  • Functions which didn't specify a source directory, and which ran without a source lister (e.g. from a floating toolbar or global hotkey) had their current directory set to the Opus program files directory (or whatever the Opus process' CD was). They now have it set to system32, which is more consistent with other situations, and potentially safer for USB installs.
  • In the Unattended Errors dialog, placement of the Export Error List link was incorrect when the window was resized.
  • Fixed crash if you used Ctrl+MouseWheel in the standalone viewer with some viewer plugins which do not support zooming using the wheel.
