V9.0 IS FINALLY OUT
« on: July 29, 2019, 18:43:01 »
Version v9.0 is now finally out !!!

The workaround for the window focus bug in Windows 10 (1803) took longer then planned and also the virtual device thing took a lot longer then planned.

Next Release will not contain any major feature like that. It will be a fix up release for bugs that are found and minor changes and minor new features.
And will be released a lot faster.

So if you got any requests that you would like to see in the next version. Let me know now! (Even if you asked before)
Since I'm currently planning what to include in the next release.

There more information you can provide around a feature idea the bigger the chance is that it will be added.
However.. If it is a major addition. I will put in the the backlog for major ides for future release. For the next release I'm look for smaller quality of life fixes/addition.

It still shows [Release Candidate] in the window caption.

I would like to have a "files before folders option" in the sorting settings.

Another FR.

There're 2 folders: folder1 and folder2. If I rename folder2 to folder1 I'd like contents of folder2 to be moved (asked) to folder1, like Windows does.

Please implement External Packers support in packer profiles.

P.S. There's minor issue with packer profiles.

1. Add new profile and
2. Immediately remove it

Result: Profile is removed, the first existing is loaded, but its name remains from the removed one, so MC asks to save chaged profile.

Interesting feature. I think this can be added without major problems. I will check.

When can we expect to see it?

Hiya,

Thank you Mathias for the new release :)

As mentioned by some users -including myself- on many occasions -including in this thread-,
an option "Sort files and folders separately, Folders *last*" is really necessary
for obvious usability reasons. If you could put it at the top of your priority list and
release it in the next version of Multi Commander that would be really appreciated
by many of your users -including myself- :)
Thanks a lot to you in advance and all the best :)

PS: for reference this option has been requested in the following previous messages:
(and maybe in others that I haven't stumbled upon yet):
Explorer panel sorting with files first
Sort files and folders separately, Folders *last*

already added. There is already an option for that if you check the Beta/RC release

Hi Mathias,

Thanks a lot for that, now using this new option which seems to work perfectly,
this is really a huge usability improvement (at least imho!), you are a star,
thank you so much :)

PS: I'll quickly tell my little (success) story on how I was able to find and enable that option,
maybe it will help other users:
* I was using version 9.0.0 build 2532 which is found on the download page (at time of writing).
* I couldn't find that new option in this version so I started to look around for a newer version.
* I stumbled upon this post in the "Beta Releases" forum: How to get beta releases
* For users following these steps, keep in mind Mathias'warning:
"Beta release are to be considered unsafe. They contain feature and fixes that are not yet fully tested. So test them at your own risk"
* Then I launched "MultiUpdate.exe" (located in the Multi Commander directory).
* In the MultiUpdate app, I checked the following options "Show detailed information", "Download beta if exi(s)ts",
"Backup existing version before updating" and I unchecked all other options.
* I hit the "Start" button (on the MultiUpdate GUI).
* After configuring my firewall to allow MultiUpdate to do its magic, MultiUpdate successfully upgraded Multi Commander
to version 9.1 build 2554 (at time of writing).
* In the new Multi Commander version I found and checked the new option "Show files above folder" (In menu "Configuration"
-> "Explorer Panel settings..." -> tab "Display" -> section "Sorting and Columns")

Many thanks again Mathias :)
