Directory Opus 11.12.5 (Beta)

Directory Opus 11.12.5 (beta) is now available for all Opus 11 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.

Note that this uses the new unified 32/64 bit installer. Please report any installation problems you may encounter!


  • Fixed issues with UTF-8 in image metadata introduced in the previous betas (fundamentally UTF-8 encoding wasn't being handled properly for IPTC tags, which now take precedence over Exif/Xmp for some fields).
  • Replaced the Dialog script object's "default" property with "defvalue", and the Toolbar object's "default" property with "deftoolbar", to avoid clashes with JScript reserved keywords. The old property names are still supported for backwards compatibility in other languages.
  • Dialogs displayed with the {dlgfolder} code are now centered over the Lister that launches them.
  • The copy buffer file size is now 512KB by default, since it seems that gives much better results on most modern devices.
  • The Standard Toolbar Highlight and Shadow colors (in Preferences / Display / Colors and Fonts) can now be set as transparent to stop separators being drawn.
  • Updated to version 1.0.2a of the openssl libraries (security fixes).
