Directory Opus 12.12.3 (Beta)

Directory Opus 12.12.3 (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.



  • Scripting: The FSUtil.Hash object can now generate three flavors of CRC32 checksums in addition to the existing MD5 and SHA variants.
  • The 64-bit version of the MultiView plugin now works, provided you have 64-bit versions of the viewer DLLs it uses. This enables an alternative set of viewers for things like Office documents and many other formats.
  • Increased compatibility with metadata shooting time fields presented in a non-EXIF compliant format.
  • Updated UnRAR.dll to 5.70.100. (n.b. Opus was not affected by the WinRAR ACE issue fixed in 5.70; we're just updating to the current version.)
  • Fixed a crash when undocking a dual display Lister (assuming docking was enabled in Preferences).
  • Fixed a couple of problems that occurred when checkbox mode and details+thumbnails mode were turned on at the same time.
  • Fixed a problem introduced in Opus 12.11 which could cause the taskbar to flash over borderless full-screen applications and games when doing certain things in Opus on multi-monitor setups.
  • Fixed cosmetic issue in the Rename dialog if the Rename Macro Builder font was taller than the rest of the line.
  • Fixed cosmetic issue with buttons to the right of labels on toolbars if you had button spacing set to zero and the Office 2003 style on or themes off.
  • If "always display the jobs bar" was on and you manually closed the jobs bar, the bar for that Lister would then go into auto-close mode if a file operation caused it to re-appear. It now goes back into "always display" mode.
  • The Jobs Bar no longer has a close button when "always display the jobs bar" is on. (You can still close it via buttons if you need to, e.g. Set JOBSBAR=off).
  • The update icon is now only displayed once in each window when using dual file displays with independent status bars.
  • Fix for "Crashes unmounting Bitlocker drive".
  • Fixed some compatibility problems with the most recent version of OneDrive that meant the online/offline status of files could be displayed incorrectly.
  • Fixed a bug that in some cases could cause OneDrive offline files to be downloaded when showing their thumbnails.
