  • (07.11.06) Added: Instead of granting the user full read access to a folder via admin functions, just call FindFirstFile etc. inside of tcmadmin. This limits a lot what can be done in such directories.

  • (07.11.06) Fixed: FTP: When duplicating a connection, e.g. by opening the same connection also in the opposite window, also duplicate any used templates (for custom server types)

  • (07.11.06) Added: Special handling of Alt+Letter user-defined hotkeys: catch them before they can get to the menu handler, so Alt+S doesn't invoke both the internal command and open the Start menu

  • (07.11.06) Added: When both files wciconex.dll and wciconex.inc exist in the Total Commander directory, TC will use these for new buttons instead of wcmicons.dll
  • (07.11.06) Fixed: Overwrite dialog, Option "Rename target file": If user cancelled the new name request dialog, the entire copy operation was cancelled
  • (07.11.06) Fixed: Two separate trees: Tree not updated for Ctrl+Cursor left/right when using two separate trees, and the directory was transferred to the inactive panel
  • (05.11.06) Fixed: Synchronize dirs: Access violation when choosing "Delete on both sides" in empty results list

  • (05.11.06) Fixed: Control distance in configuration - options - display - help texts
  • (05.11.06) Added: wincmd.ini [Configuration] TabSeparator=: sets different separator between drive letter and current directory name in tabs (default is a ":"). Only a single byte character is allowed!

  • (03.11.06) Fixed: When changing tabs while separate tree is active, switch cursor to active file panel
