v13.0 **BETA**
« on: March 29, 2023, 12:00:48 »
Not many new things. (I been very busy and have not had much time to spend on MC)
But there is some new features, The big one is the Data Preview Panel. It is like the Hover Data Preview but instead of showing data preview in a hover window, it will be shown in a panel.
Also you can now drag and drop files on a tab header to make that tab go to that location and if dropped in empty tab area a new tab is opened.

+ 45 Changes

Thanks for the update Mathias.

Just installed b2945 & it seems to have lost many of the entries on the right-click context menu.
MC entries are intact but 3rd party entries have mostly gone.
Any way to recover these or is it necesssary to reinstall the apps?

I used autoruns to inspect the system & the reg entries etc are intact.  The context entries are also OK in Vanilla Explorer.   ::)

Nothing around that is changed.. changes are just minor fixes to the things in the previous beta
Also MC do not control external options in context menu, MC just ask windows to fill up the menu.
Can it be that you went from 32bit to 64bit ?
64bit does not show shell extensions that are only 32bit.. and the other way around

Mathias i have a widget on the desktop that shows cpu for processes. This mc beta shows between 6 and 7% cpu being idle. I never saw that before so i downgraded to latest stable and cpu use is normal again, so low it doesn't even show up anymore.
Also where is the page to download older beta's please, the previous one was working fine.

Also, while i have your ear, for me a weak point in mc, my favorite filemanager, it how it handles a network share that is gone, it does not respond for a long time, no other filemanager takes so long.

That very strange since there is no new functions that run in the background or anything like that. difference between the two beta are very low, only fixes and only major change are in Preview Panel, and if you did not even use that. everything is like before.
Can you create a dump of the process when it using CPU and upload to https://multicommander.com/support/upload

I don't think MC can take longer before responding then others, when shares are gone, unless some other program bypasses Windows Networking and do there own networking. MC is using the Windows network api. It is Windows that control how long it waits for it to timeout.

There is no revert of beta. You have to go back to 12.8

i got 'bad gateway' trying to upload, maybe because the filesize is quite big, 154mb, i've put it here https://jcremers.com/MultiCommander.DMP
The file shows nothing in nirsoft bluescreenview though.

Mc taking longer to respond is what i see on two pc's here. You've told me before it only uses windows api but i can't help seeing a big difference, sorry.

the cpu problem does not happen on the laptop.
On the desktop, if i close all panels, the cpu goes to 0, opening just one panel and it goes to 6.6.


fixed it by importing the settings from the laptop, cpu is back to normal.

Hello :D,
Mathias new update of MC Beta changes 64bit version to 32bit. Even if you check option "Upgrade 32bit version to 64bit" in MultiUpdate, it still installs 32bit version.
What's interesting, it downloads zip file with 64bit version (MultiCommander_x64_Update_(13.0.0.2945).zip), but after installation it turns out to be 32bit.

Ahhh.. Ok the new publishing script must name the files wrong. I will fix that that tonight with a new version.

Thanks for reply Mathias.
MC update being x32 not x64 must be the reason for my issue also, as I am now on 32 bit.
Will wait for your fix  :D

64bit version is now in the 64bit package

When the Upgrade tool start click on settings and check "upgrade 32bit to 64bit version" before you press start upgrade..

Thanks for letting me back onto MC x64 Mathias :D

I may have found a possible bug. 
Using 13.0 b2946 x64 when I <shift-click select> a block of files & then <ctrl-click deselect> one or more of them, the selection alters as soon as I move the mouse.
This can also reverse the selection.

I'd appreciate you having a look to see if you can replicate this behaviour.  ;)

UPDATE
 It's now doing what it's supposed to do.... so WTF happened IDK  ::)

Hmm...

Unable to reproduce here with build 2946.

Tried with just folders, just files and a mix of the two.

An archive is not being unpacked in the target folder, but rather in a subfolder of the target folder with the same name as the archive. I believe I recall this behavior being different in the past, when I could unpack the contents of the archive directly into the target folder.

When unpacking multiple files, you get them into subfolder if "unpack archive into individual folders" are checked in the unpack dlg. (and it is by default)

However, I was merely extracting a single file, and the option was unavailable as it was greyed out.
