Directory Opus 12.30.2 (Beta)

Directory Opus 12.30.2 (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.


Changes since 12.30.1:

  • Removed Open Office extensions from the default ActiveX viewer extension list, as it's unlikely that kind of viewer is installed for them these days.
  • Improved viewer compatibility with FoxIt PDF preview handler. (Now works again without having to move the .PDF extension to FoxIt's other handler.)
  • Rich Text files (.rtf) with names starting "~" are no longer sent to preview handlers in the viewer pane. Microsoft Word uses this pattern for temporary files while editing documents, and Microsoft's preview handlers go wrong (freezing or opening unwanted conversion dialogs) when asked to view the files.
  • When in multi-column sort mode, the Set SORTREVERSE=Toggle command did not properly update the arrow in the sort header that indicates the overall sort direction.
  • In a dual Lister with two folder trees, clicking on an item in the inactive folder tree no longer causes it to "jump" to show the previously selected item before reading the new folder.
  • The icon size is now correct on high-DPI systems when changing view modes in a hosted virtual folder (e.g. Recycle Bin.)
  • Windows 11 context menus:
    • Fixed items for some Store apps not appearing if they used a new method to register themselves against file extensions.

    • Fixed un-labelled sub-menus for OneDrive and iCloud appearing. (These didn't appear in File Explorer, didn't work when clicked, and looked wrong due to having icons without labels. We now filter them out.)

  • Updated raw camera decoder to LibRaw 0.21.1.
