  • Fixed incorrect/inconsistent handling of {file|noext} and similar command sequences with folders and files with no extensions.

  • Fix for broken Rename Scripting in Vista SP2 x64 version.
  • Raw Digital Camera plugin:

  • Fix for problem where RAR files with comments could not be opened in the x64 version.
  • Fix for crash that could occur in the initial configuration wizard.

  • The Zip Auto-Extract function now sets the current directory of the launched file correctly to that of the extracted files (so that any associated files like DLLs will be found).
  • Shortcuts launched from Opus (e.g. by double-clicking in a Lister) now have their current directory set correctly if there is no value defined for the ‘Start In’ field (previously the CD would be that of the shortcut’s target, whereas the correct behaviour is the directory the shortcut itself is in).
  • Pressing Ctrl-X (Clipboard CUT) with nothing selected no longer clears the clipboard.
  • Improvements to Image Conversion function:
  • Added NOLOSSLESS argument to the Image CONVERT command to force recompression of JPEG files. (Lets you rotate a JPEG image and forcibly recompress it rather than rotating it losslessly.)
  • Image conversion now works for all selected font files instead of just the first.
  • Fix for JPEG-EXIF rotation offset not always being lossless when it could have been.
  • Image Converter can now reset EXIF rotation tags in JPEG files.
  • When clearing EXIF rotation, the orientation field is now set to 1. Previously the entire field was nulled-out which could potentially cause problems with some EXIF readers.

  • New JPEG2000 plugin which supports x64 and is much faster than the old one.
  • TGA plugin: Added support for alpha channels, pre-multiplied alpha, indexed color, and greyscale. Fixed problems with swapped red/blue channels in 16-bit images and small/corrupt thumbnails for some files.
  • Fix for problem when renaming files on some Samba network filesystems. (It was possible to end up with two files with the same name showing in the list.)
  • The Select Destination dialog now shows all levels of Favorites in the drop-down rather than just top-level ones. Several other minor fixes/improvements to the dialog as well.
  • Selecting a Content Type format from the drop-down list no longer applies sections of the format that are turned off.
  • FTP changes to support WindowsCE FTP server.
  • The Go /controls command could cause a duplicate tab to be opened if the right-most tab was locked when it was executed.
  • Fixed problem with unreliable “Automatically select next file when viewed image is deleted” option for Viewer Pane.
  • Fixed layout issue when Find Panel was opened and there was a toolbar beside the Viewer Panel.
  • If inline rename failed in an FTP directory, the retry dialog would reveal the full path of the FTP file including the username/password.
  • The ‘Run Opus on startup’ option now uses a shortcut in the Startup program group rather than the registry. Fixes problems a small number of people had with Opus starting too early during boot.
  • The default behaviour for single-line functions is now asynchronous again. Now, only multi-line functions default to running synchronously. Of course this behaviour can be changed using the appropriate @ modifiers.
  • The ActiveX plugin now scans the registry if it cannot find a viewer. (Workaround for programs which trash the MIME and COM settings of any file-types they take over.)

Veranderingen voor v9.1.1.7 - v9.1.1.8

  • Bugs fixed / minor changes:
  • Added @toggle command modifier. This lets you change the highlight status of buttons that can automatically highlight (e.g., Set HIDESYSTEMFILES). You can specify @toggle invert to invert the normal highlight state, or @toggle disable to prevent highlighting altogether.
  • Added new option to Preferences / Miscellaneous / Advanced called flatview_folder_filters. When set to True this will enable folder filters in FlatView mode.
  • Fixed several drag & drop issues:
  • Drag & drop to Favorites menu now shows correct cursor.

Veranderingen voor v9.1.1.1 - v9.1.1.2

Veranderingen voor v9.1.1.0 - v9.1.1.1

  • Bugs fixed / minor changes:
  • The Properties command did not correctly display a multi-file Properties dialog if multiple files were selected.
  • The Remove All function in the Find panel did not correctly clear the list of locations.
  • When viewing fonts in thumbnails mode, an incorrect font could sometimes be used (eg, a Serif found would sometimes be shown instead of a Sans-Serif font)
  • A line in an InfoTip definition can now be completely suppressed even if it doesn’t actually display any fields itself. For example, {!coords}Location:{!} will display a line saying Location: if the image contains GPS EXIF tags, and will be completely hidden if it doesn’t.

  • Fixed a problem where Opus could get confused about the shift-select start/end position when pressing Home/End followed by Shift-Home/End
  • The Capitalize All Words Rename function now correctly handles accented / non-Latin characters
  • Several problems have been fixed to do with image handling:
  • Scaling greyscale RLE8 bitmaps resulted in garbage.
  • The viewer now allows cropping of RLE4 and RLE8 bitmaps.
  • Scaling 1-bpp bitmaps forced the colour palette to black & white.
  • Fixed problems cropping 1-bpp, 4-bpp and "565" 16-bpp bitmaps.
  • Higher quality scaling of some indexed-color image types.
  • Fixed indexed color bitmaps having their palettes quantized to 16-bpc after some operations (e.g. rotation of RLE4 / RLE8 compressed images).
  • The viewer's Save As dialog now remembers the type you last used even after you close the viewer. The Save As dialog also now sets the initial file extension to match the initial type.
  • Fixed invalid bitmaps being saved if the input was RLE compressed. For example, some bitmaps could not be set as the Desktop wallpaper using Opus.
  • Fixed clipboard image copy not working if the viewer was set to Tile mode and was exactly the right size for the image.
  • Fixed problem that could cause some TIFFs to not be read.
  • Reject BMP files with invalid compression/bitcount combinations.

Veranderingen voor v9.1.0.6 - v9.1.1.0

  • User Interface:
  • The Find panel's multiple folder selection system is now easier to understand. The Remove Folder button now only removes the selected item from the list and does not clear the path field as well. The Remove All Folders drop-down command now clears the entire path list and resets the path field to the Lister's source path.
  • The Select Icon dialog’s drop-down MRU list is now limited to 10 items instead of growing indefinitely.
  • The path field at the bottom of the Select Destination dialog now updates when an item is selected from the Recent or Favorites drop-downs.
  • It was possible to select text in the Output Window (Script or FTP) and delete it by pressing the delete key – this has been fixed.
  • The Output Window can now be closed by pressing Escape.
  • Fix for files larger than 2 gigabytes sorting incorrectly in the Find Window.
  • Listers & Display Modes:
  • Fix for incorrect alpha-blending of some toolbar/menu icons (e.g. Favorites).
  • Fix for crash which could occur when double-clicking an already selected folder in Thumbnails and Icon modes.
  • Fix for incorrect item spacing with some fonts in List and Icon modes.
  • The Rename INLINE=ext (and other parameters) command now works in Thumbnails, List and Icon modes.
  • Listers showing collections which are deleted will now notice and go to the collection root.

  • Fix for problem with url/lnk targets not being displayed in the Description column on folder read.
  • Copying file paths to the clipboard is much faster, especially with large numbers of files.
  • If you select multiple files and push Enter the files are now launched in series instead of in parallel. (In particular, this works around a bug in Microsoft Word where it would open several empty windows if it was not already running and you launched multiple .doc files in this way.)
  • Flat View:
  • If the "Automatically sort new files" option was disabled, in FlatView (Grouped) mode items would appear at the bottom of the list making them appear to be in the wrong location. They are now correctly positioned at the end of the appropriate branch.
  • Directory Opus 9.1 Release Notes.
  • 3.
  • Fixed a problem with FlatView Listers viewing a junction folder not correctly noticing file changes within that junction.
  • Fixed a problem when attempting to drag folders to their own parents in FlatView.
  • Folder Tree:
  • The Folder Tree now correctly detects changes to the Public (All Users) Desktop folder.
  • Newly created zip files are now sorted correctly in the Folder Tree (if Zip files are displayed in the tree).
  • Fix for zip and folder icons at the Desktop level sometimes disappearing when their corresponding items were modified.
  • Fix for painting artefacts in the Folder Tree when horizontally scrolling a full-row selection tree.
  • Fix for painting artefacts in the Folder Tree if folder tree has both colour and image set.
  • Fix for painting artefacts in Folder Tree if background image is set and new items are added to an open branch of the tree.
  • Context Menus:
  • Fix for TortoiseSVN 1.5 icons not appearing on the context menu under Windows XP.
  • Fix for only some files being added to the zip if the Add-to-Zip context menu item was used from Explorer's Search Results and the files were not all in the same folder.
  • Compatibility fix for certain context menu items (convertXtoDVD and HHD Hex Editor Neo) which pass 0 index to GetData instead of -1 as per the API documentation. Explorer allows/ignores 0 so Opus does as well now.
  • The "working directory" is now supplied to context menu extensions, where possible. (i.e. When it's a real directory and all selected items have the same parent.)
  • Fix for some context menu handlers when files are right-clicked in Flat-View or Collections.
  • Slight speed-up for context menu generation.
  • Fixed generic context menus being used instead of Opus's custom ones when folders or zips that were direct children of Desktop were right-clicked in the folder tree.
  • The Desktop folder now has a context menu when right-clicking on a folder tab.
  • Fixed potential crash with some context menu extensions when certain Filetype ContextMenu commands were placed on toolbars. (Some context menu extensions don't cope with being initialised without a file list. Opus now avoids this.)
  • The ContextMenu command can now work on folders as well as files.
  • Fix for CryptoForge context menu not working correctly.
  • Status bars:
  • Status bars with customized background images or colours are now drawn using the current Windows theme (visual style) instead of the old Win95-style borders and grip.
  • When the resize grip overlaps part of the status bar (due to a thin window and/or wide status bar) the status bar elements now fade out towards the grip instead of being cut off abruptly.
  • On Vista, glass status bars (when enabled) have a themed resize grip instead of the old Win95-style grip.
  • Fix for incorrect alpha-blending of icons on Vista glass status bars (when enabled).
  • Directory Opus 9.1 Release Notes.
  • 4.
  • Glass status bar are now turned off for maximized windows. This is for aesthetic reasons and to avoid the difficulty of choosing Custom text colors that are visible on both light and dark backgrounds (since glass goes very dark when maximized).
  • Glass status bars are now slightly "frosted" for better readability and to make the glow around text more subtle.
  • Text on glass status bars is now more similar to titlebar text in terms of default color & glow.
  • Bar graph frames on glass with f=2 are now solid white instead of black. New arguments f=4 and f=5 force solid black and white frames, respectively, regardless of glass.
  • New bar graph frame argument f=6 produces an indented border, the opposite of f=1.
  • Vista:
  • Fix for left-hand, "themed" toolbars on Vista not adjusting their background when the status bar was toggled.
  • Fixed Vista rendering problem with truncated toolbar chevrons.
  • Under Vista, the "View Help" in the Help menu when on the desktop did not work.
  • Under Vista, RMB drag no longer incorrectly shows the no-drag cursor.
  • Under Vista, the Go /Desktop User XXX command now works correctly.
  • x64:
  • Fix for Explorer Replacement mode in x64 version – previously Opus was not trapping calls to Explorer made from 32 bit applications (e.g. Firefox).
  • The Windows Messenger ‘Send File’ function (Copy WINMSGR) did not work correctly under x64.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when reading Amiga icons on an x64-based system.
  • Preferences:
  • The Explorer Replacement exclusion list is now correctly checked even when Opus isn’t already running.
  • Fix for Image Preferences where changing the "When Shared" setting to "Tiled" did not take effect until Opus was restarted (except for the "Standard" images where it worked immediately).
  • Fix for the Display - Images page in Preferences affecting some Color settings when reset to defaults.
  • Fix for the Folder Tabs background colour always coming from Preferences, whether or not "use system color" was set, if an image was used for the Folder Tabs background. (The background colour could have been wrong for images that didn't fill the Folder Tab strip or for images that were alpha blended with the background colour.)
  • Fix for Office2003-style toolbar "custom" colour gradient boxes being the wrong way around in Preferences.
  • Fix for Office2003-style toolbar non-"custom" colours overriding the "custom" colour choices if the non-"custom" colours had ever been changed from the defaults.
  • Toolbars, Customization & Commands:
  • Fix for buttons imported from .DCF files always having their icons turned off if they used named internal icons.
  • Directory Opus 9.1 Release Notes.
  • 5.
  • It is now possible to display \t in a button label by escaping the slash – i.e. \\t.
  • Having the Copy WINMSGR=list command on a toolbar or menu now works even if the contact list has not been opened.
  • Dropping a drive from My Computer on to a toolbar in Customize mode now correctly creates a Go button.
  • Fixed a problem with commands that tried to set a variable using @set with the value {sourcepath$}
  • The Set FULLROWSELECT command now allows you to toggle between ‘select’ and ‘display’ mode by specifying both options (e.g. Set FULLROWSELECT=Toggle,Select,Display).
  • Fixed a problem where a function with multiple CreateFolder commands with the READAUTO flag set could cause a dummy file entry to be displayed in the list.
  • Fix for label position being ignored with several types of generated buttons when used outside of context menus (i.e. on toolbars/menus):
  • Open-With menu
  • Sent-To menu
  • Shell-New menu
  • Context Menu (i.e. Filetype CONTEXTMENU on a toolbar)
  • Namespace Menus
  • Copy-to-Collection menu
  • Windows Messenger contacts menu
  • History, Back and Forward lists
  • TabGroup list
  • FTP site list
  • Copy COLLLIST now takes its icon from the button or menu item rather than forcing a particular icon to be used.
  • Media Files & Viewers:
  • Fix for Play window not auto-closing after playing MP3 files.
  • Play window now displays basic information for MP3 files.
  • Movie & GIF thumbnail borders now match the aspect of the video/image, instead of being padded to the full thumbnail size, when film sprockets are enabled. (This was already the case when sprockets were disabled.)
  • Fix for resource leak when generating movie thumbnails.
  • Fix for problem getting EXIF data from Fuji photos with corrupt GPS tag.
  • Fix for incorrect bitrate & datarate reports for some AVI and WMV files.
  • Fix for incorrect track number (+1) shown for WMA tracks from Napster.
  • Fix for garbled output when converting 16-bit images to GIF.
  • Fix for bug that caused Amiga icons (and possibly other low colour-depth images) to be jumbled when reduced in size (e.g. when displaying very small thumbnails).
  • The MultiView plugin now re-opens almost instantly if it has been used recently.
  • The MultiView plugin now ignores XML files as it did an awful job of displaying them.
  • FTP:
  • Small change to enforce directory listings as ASCII with TYPE A for rogue Compaq servers.



Veranderingen voor v9.1.0.5 - v9.1.0.6

Veranderingen voor v9.1.0.4 - v9.1.0.5

  • Bugs fixed / minor changes:
  • The new grp:XXX syntax in wildcard pattern matching did not properly resolve the name of the Filetype group (with the result that only the default groups Images/Documents/etc would work.)
  • Right-click / Rename on the Folder Tree incorrectly displayed the full Rename dialog (with an incorrect filename) rather than entering inline rename mode as intended
  • The ADD argument can now be used with the Clipboard SET command to add text to the existing clipboard contents.
  • There is a new ext2 modifier for file command codes (e.g. {file|ext2}). This is basically the same as the existing ext modifier except the period is omitted (so, for example, {file|ext2} might return txt whereas {file|ext} would return .txt)
  • Fixed a problem where Copy UPDATEALL and UPDATEEXISTING would incorrectly delete pre-existing empty folders in the target directory.
  • Swapped the key shortcuts for Delete and Edit in the Folder Aliases Preferences dialog to be more logical.
