Workbench Explorer v2.3 build 9400 has been released!

Use "Check Latest Version" from the menu, AmiUpdate, OS4Depot, or Aminet, to upgrade.


###### [2.3 build 9400] - 2019-5-13 5 Year Anniversary
### Added
- Downloads from Aminet and OS4Depot now have the path set in the filenote.
- Version column. On by default, disable in Preferences->Columns.
- Version is shown in search results if applicable.
- Preferences->Window->Toolbar image size.
For normal (24x24) or more compact (16x16) toolbar.
- Preferences->Operation->Use internal Information system.
Not using this will use the default program, usually RAWBInfo, to display
information about the selected item. Not using WEx's internal Information will
limit some extra useful data. Use Menu->Tools->Tool type editor
to edit icon tooltypes.
- The version or picture details, if applicable, is shown in the paste exists
box for each file. The "Get version" button still shows the complete version
information.

### Fixed
- Blank menu images now done internally.
- Cleaned up context menu alignments.
- Sort arrow was put on wrong listbrowser column when columns were re-arranged.
- Content view style was not showing the correct data.
- Changing drawers order was not refreshing.
- Improved sorting routines.
- Small bug in SAK_GetVersion().
- Rare bug when close Preferences dealing with using own screen or not.
- Bug that would crash WEx if the Preview pane is open and then open a new tab
at Computer.

### Changed
- The paste exists requesters are much smaller allowing for future expansion.
- The StatusBar now uses my InfoData.class.

Thanks !

But is there a reason why it takes so loooong to display the root of a 500GB partition (and using HDD and a lot of CPU power during many minutes)?

The root? No reason it should be slow there. It would only slow down noticeably if there are a lot of images/MP3s/etc that get scanned for meta data. Or if you have the new Version column still turned on by default, and there are a lot of executables/binary files.

Preferences->Columns->Version

Uncheck it to disable it.

Let me know if that doesn't speed things back up for you.

Thanks for this excellent program!

I had given up on it as too slow until I saw this thread about the version column.
Would it not be sensible to have the version column set to off as default?

That came up on Amigans.net. I have it turned on because a lot of people don't read the ChangeLog and would never know about it. And, on my X5000 is it fast so I didn't notice the slow down as much.

Glad you like, though.
