File Commander/2 v. 2.40 (3/3/2010, Brian Havard) Readme/What's new
New in File Commander/2 v2.40 ============================= New Features o Support includes in user menu files. o Syntax highlighting in the viewer. o Viewer and editor support for Unicode text files. o Support for 7zip archives. o Support for bzip2 files. o File Information display (Ctrl-I) shows complete file metadata. o Ctrl-Shift-E to eject removable media & Ctrl-Shift-L to load. Minor Enhancements o Change the search match highlight colour in the viewer from "Menu Bar" to "Highlight" which is consistent with the editor and more sensible. o Preserve the case of environment variable names.  Case insensitive matching is now Unicode based so will work with all languages. o Allow re-sorting of File Find results before search has finished. o Use a separate thread to update the file copy progress box to reduce flicker and improve copy speed. o Editor: line length limit of 64kB removed. o Added new syntax highlighting directive, "statechange" which allows more flexible state transitions. o Added includes in syntax defintion file. o Add support for Unicode file names in RAR archives. o TAR file support improvements - Fix checksum calculation when there are bytes in the header >127. - Interpret file names as UTF-8. o Added field in File Find to specify the code page used when searching files for the "Containing" string. o Copy/Move: Add ability to specify overwrite mode in the initial dialog so that you don't have to wait for the first collision to occur. o Add !lf operator to provide a list of tagged files with their full path. o Add !tf (tagged file with full path). o Add ability to remove an entry from command history with Delete key. o Syntax Highlighter: Add /w flag for syntax states of "word scope" to assist with LISP keywords. o Syntax Highlighter: Enable word characters to be redefined for each state. Bug Fixes o User Menu: Make menu item hot key work if specified in lower case in the mnu file. This used to work in 2.20 but was broken while adding support for sub-menus. o Fix display of hex view when code page translation is active. Was "translating" the vertical bar separators. o Fix file copy ETA overflowing copy progress dialog & causing screen corruption when a huge file copy starts off slowly. o In Change Case, mixed mode should not capitalise the character after an apostrophe. o In viewer, fix background colour of line continuation markers (right arrow at the end of a line that's longer than the window when unwrapped). o Multi-file search/replace confirmation prompt, extend box width if necessary to fit the text values and don't overflow box if text still won't fit. o Fix !F when opposite panel is showing an archive's contents. o Fix !t behaviour in archives.
