Software News   Software News : Directory Opus 4.17 pre 21 released
   posted by _Steve_ on 31-May-2003 22:05:27 (2224 reads)
A new version of the GPL'd Directory Opus 4 has been made availble from the Directory Opus 4 yahoo groups file area.

Changes in v4.17 include:

4.17 (26.05.2003):
  • few hits removed
  • Does not try to set archive bit on read-only volumes when copying.
  • All, None and Toggle ARexx commands support window parameter (0 = left lister, 1 = right lister, other = current lister)
  • DefIcons are used for adding icons under OS3.5+ (for non-defined filetype icons)
  • Iconify to buttons always open its window on Workbench instead of the default public screen.
  • ConfigOpus opens on DOpus screen if possible also when DOpus uses own screen
  • modified ANSI recognition in SmartRead function to understand CSI (0x9B) escaped codes
  • custom actions parse {} arguments for method "ARexx" too (it always worked for all other methods)
  • scrolling lister by character keys changed: now shifted keys are used to jump to a directory starting with the pressed key instead of jumping to a file
  • new tooltype BEHINDWB (and -B CLI option) to prevent DOpus to popping up its screen. This allows to start it from WBStartup ready to use by just a screen switch.
  • fixed copy progress display in one-bar mode
  • Show function will use datatypes if it fails to load IFF file (it supports 24bit IFF files only through datatypes)
  • MouseWheel can be used to scroll drive and button banks
  • separate version with debug enabled (use it with Sushi/Sashimi tools to report bugs)
  • Rename function supports multiple asterisks
  • archive support improved
  • SkipAll/ReplaceAll refers to all selected directories
  • Rename button in the Replace requester
  • MakeLink command added
  • New MMB functions do not work if MMB hotkey is enabled.
  • Singe MMB click selects source lister.
  • New filetype action: MMB double-click (needs new ConfigOpus to configure).
  • Lister is not re-readed after CLONE function
  • Files and dirs copied from a listed archive have their original comment preserved
  • support for encrypted archives
  • CLI parameters template available through ? or HELP parameter when starting from CLI
  • Files and dirs copied from a listed archive have their original datestamp and protection bits preserved
  • Filter works for selected files too
  • File viewer uses Gadtools for its GUI
  • Parent on directory tree returns to previous lister display
  • Query/Modify OutputCmd/OutputWindow Arexx commands work now
  • select pattern window allows selecting by file comment too.
  • viewer window will open even if it's coordinates do not match the screen
  • preliminary support for AmigaGuide help
  • it will quietly wait for all alien windows to close before closing its screen and terminating
  • cleaned up input handling code
  • 8SVX PAN chunk support added
  • AHI support for samples (modules are still played by inovamusic.library on audio.device). Put USEAHI tooltype in program's icon to enable it.
  • MODIFY SORTMETHOD and MODIFY SORTFLAGS perform the change without calling RESCAN (DISPLAYDIR is enough)
  • built-in function should work on double-clicked archive entries (were possible)
  • archive support added for functions: Show, IconInfo, Play, PlayST and LoopPlay
  • aborting file loading in HEX mode of the file viewer fixed.
  • QUERY/MODIFY functions fixed for some parameters
  • jumping to entry name starting with pressed key works for reverse sorted lister too
  • replaced built-in error messages with system ones

  • printing empty directory should not cause Enforcer hits anymore
  • no source file is deleted on Move(As) operation when destination disk is full
  • Sort by extension option added to lister popup menu
  • GetEntry return code changed to empty string for incorrect parameters
  • lister popup menu removed for the DeviceList because of sorting problems
  • Relabel function fixed
  • Search function works on listed archives
  • name sorting mode can be selected in lister menu
  • archives should work on all filesystems again
  • command line length in generated scripts increased to 510 chars
  • lister popup menu rearranged
  • built-in key shortcuts to tiny buttons follow keymap settings
  • horizontal scroller of directory tree fixed
  • next copy of DOpus can be started if any of prevoiusly started copies are waiting for ConfigOpus to return.
  • file viewer window should fall back to fit screen size
  • remaining lister display options added to the lister menu
  • changing lister sort order does not require directory re-reading
  • cleaned up directory read procedure
  • directory buffers use LRU algorithm for clearing now
  • can open computed fonts again
  • fixed archive parser to be fully case-insensitive
  • Modify command correctly handles passed values
  • fixed auto-calculation of datestamp width in lister
  • Screen/window is not reopened if no config changes were made in the ConfigOpus.
  • AppMenu is used together with AppIcon if iconified to AppIcon.
  • supports a new option in ConfigOpus to turn off the quit requester.
  • progress window's title for Search and Hunt functions displays search pattern too.
  • (Hex/Ansi/Smart)Read commands no longer leave DOpus in busy state when used in ARexx scripts.

Sorry, I think the original link I posted contained session data (although I did check it before posting and it was ok), and I forgot to remove it.

Thanks to MikeB for fixing it already.
