This page contains a list of changes to Total Commander during it's development. The list starts at the latest change and goes back in time.

The latest changes to Total Commander can also be found in the file HISTORY.TXT. There is also a full list of changes maintained by Panos Davitidis (user pdavit).

Some versions of Total Commander were developed in parallel. Because the history of all these versions are included, this list is not completely chronological and contains duplicate changes.

After the release of version 7.0 two branches were being developed. Besides the further development of version 7.0, version 6.56 was also further developed for people that did not want to or could not upgrade to version 7.0. Thus, version 6.57 and 6.58 were released at the same time version 7.02 and 7.03 were released. [1] [2]

Version 8.0, the first 64-bit version of Total Commander, was developed in parallel with versions 7.57 and 7.57a.

  • (07.10.10) Fixed: Various crashes
  • (06.10.10) Fixed: User-defined hotkeys with Alt+Windows key were not working correctly

  • (05.10.10) Fixed: Directory hotlist: cd ftp://user:pass@server.com/path/ didn't work if the user name or password contained an asterisk (*) character (make sure the path ends with a slash to make it work)
  • (05.10.10) Fixed: Regular expressions, Unicode (e.g. in multi-rename tool): Disallow pattern ^?? because it causes a crash (replace by ^? as for ANSI regex searches)
  • (01.10.10) Fixed: Drag&Drop from search->feed to listbox not working on network shares. Now it should work when all selected files are on the same share (\\server\share)

  • (30.09.10) Fixed: Start editing comment (Ctrl+Z) while background packing of TGZ archive active, save comment (F2) -> access violation (only occurs when 'watch directory changes' is off)
  • (30.09.10) Fixed: Archive with encrypted file names (e.g. RAR): Pressed F3 on <Encrypted -> F5> text -> error message was shown, but cursor remained an hourglass

  • (28.09.10) Fixed: Windows Vista/7: Do not follow junctions (reparse points) located on network drives when the target drive differs, because the stored target is an absolute path, so the redirection would go to a local directory
  • (28.09.10) Fixed: RAR packer: -sfx was passed twice to the packer when creating self-extracting archives
  • (28.09.10) Fixed: Verify CRC checksums: Could not abort verification while no files were found to be checked, e.g. because the crc file was moved to a different directory

  • (27.09.10) Fixed: Delete directories, one of them is locked because it's the current dir in another program -> user closes program, clicks "retry" -> only that directory is deleted, but the delete operation stops
  • (27.09.10) Fixed: Also ignore trailing spaces in XXE-Encoded files
  • (27.09.10) Fixed: Select files (Num+"+"): Function couldn't handle selection by size properly for files > 2GB

  • (26.09.10) Fixed: When using "watch directory changes" and closing Word, some temporary files didn't disappear from the list (because watching for list changes was temporarily suspended) -> do not suspend it when staying in same dir

  • (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)

  • (11.04.10) Fixed: FTP: Crash when starting transfer in background, only after connection via "FTP New Connection" (Ctrl+N)
  • (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 ?
  • (11.04.10) Fixed: Explorer would open if "Use Irfanview" was checked in Lister configuration, but no program name was given
