List of changes (version 7.55 - 7.50a)

(17.06.10) Release Total Commander 7.55 final

  • (16.06.10) Fixed: Internal unpack function didn't ask to overwrite target if the target directory allowed to write, but not to list the directory contents
  • (16.06.10) Fixed: Do not use CONNECT_PROMPT option for UNC servers in the form \\server, only for shares
  • (16.06.10) Fixed: If PromptForUser=1, do not call connect function if already connected (check via WNetGetUser)

(15.06.10) Release Total Commander 7.55 final (pre2)

  • (15.06.10) Added: Call network connect function with CONNECT_PROMPT option to prompt for user name: wincmd.ini [Configuration] PromptForUser=1

  • (14.06.10) Fixed: Problems with tabs when an ftp connection was saved with "@" character in its name (TC tries to reconnect on each tab change)
  • (13.06.10) Added: "cd" command in button bar and user menu: When parameter /user: is added without giving a user name, call connect function with CONNECT_PROMPT option to prompt for user name
  • (13.06.10) Fixed: Look for key file also under %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore on Windows Vista/7 if TC is installed in "Program files" dir (reason: some older mail programs may store the key there!)

  • (08.06.10) Fixed: FTP: Support HASH command also when neither SHA-1 nor MD5 is the default -> use OPTS HASH command to set used method

  • (01.06.10) Added: HTML Help: All links to external web pages now open separately in the default browser
  • (01.06.10) Fixed: Tree view in one of the two main panels: F7 created dir on Desktop instead of in the directory under the cursor (only works in real directories)
  • (01.06.10) Fixed: Play just a default beep in Lister when user presses Ctrl+C and nothing is selected (Reason: Some translation programs seem to send Ctrl+C to Lister!)

  • (30.05.10) Added: Support HASH command (MD5 and SHA-1 only) if announced via FEAT command
  • (30.05.10) Fixed: Call Application.Terminate instead of Halt when user clicks on "No" in plugin exception dialog to avoid double error
  • (30.05.10) Fixed: FTP: Make sure the reconnected path is the same as before when continuing a transfer
  • (30.05.10) Fixed: Compare by contents: Could not abort the comparison for the interactive display (only the initial comparison with progress dialog)
  • (28.05.10) Added: Synchronize dirs: Allow to open "compare by content" via right click menu or Ctrl+F3 even when file exits on only one side (was requested to compare file with user-chosen other)

  • (23.05.10) Fixed: Switch from a tab with fs plugin custom columns view to tab with thumbs view, turn off thumbs view -> plugin custom columns were enabled also on local drive
  • (23.05.10) Fixed: Could not abort reading of extremely long directory via port connection (when server sends WAIT commands)
  • (23.05.10) Fixed: TC hangs when trying to unpack 0 byte file created by packer izarcc (reason: compression is set to bzip2, but no data present)
  • (21.05.10) Fixed: TcUsbRun.exe not adding menu items to insert notification dialog on Vista x64 -> need to write to 64-bit registry branch
  • (21.05.10) Fixed: Synchronize dirs: Main window could become accessible when synchronizing via port connection

  • (16.04.10) Fixed: Quick search with Ctrl+Alt: If user pressed e.g. AltGr+e, both 'e' and 'Euro' were added to quick search. Now try to prefer 'Euro' if there is a match, otherwise 'e'. Cursor position can still be wrong in Ctrl+S mode

  • (11.04.10) Fixed: Custom columns view: In search results view (after 'feed to listbox'), TC did not pass the DOS 8.3 names to non-Unicode plugins even if the files had Unicode names where Windows converted the accented chars to unaccented instead of ?
