Directory Opus 12.33

Directory Opus 12.33 is now available as a free update for all Directory Opus 12 users.

New versions are often made available several days before they will be detected by the update checker. You can download Opus using the links below if you don't want to wait.


The following changes were part of the 12.32.1 beta update:

  • Drag & drops from XNViewMP should now work.

  • Fixed PDF metadata not roundtripping correctly for strings containing certain characters.
  • Fixed PDF metadata not handling UTF-16 encoded as ASCII hex bytes.
  • Fixed problem decoding some JPEG images which could leave pink dots on the left-hand column.
  • If a blocked preview handler (e.g. PowerToys PDF) is encountered, Opus will now check for common alternatives to use instead, rather than failing to show the file. (The same as it does if no preview handler is found at all. So enabling the PDF preview handler within PowerToys will no longer prevent Opus from viewing PDFs, as long as one of the known alternatives is available.)
  • Updated RAR and 7Z DLLs.
  • Fixed crash when using FAYT to trigger Windows Search from a locked folder tab.


The following change is new for 12.33:

  • Updated LibWebP to fix security vulnerability.
