WhereIsIt Build 3.90 Beta 1.1009 - 09. October 2007
Last Update: October 09, 2007
Added Unicode support. This required massive changes in most of the code throughout the program, and is the main reason for this version to be released first as a beta. Chances are things broke in the process, or some details may have been missed regarding Unicode support, therefore a period of testing is required.
While WhereIsIt now supports Unicode, it does not require Unicode capable operating system to run, it still works on Windows 9x/ME with the same executable. Of course, Unicode functionality is not available on non- Unicode operating systems.
All user editable data in WhereIsIt is now Unicode capable. This includes cataloging, opening and saving files with Unicode names, using Unicode descriptions, item names, categories, flags, search expressions, etc. All visual controls in the program are capable of showing Unicode text.
Catalog files now support Unicode text as well, encoded as UTF-8. Catalog files from older versions can be used normally and are fully compatible. Vice versa works, too, however older versions of WhereIsIt are not able to detect, decode and display UTF-8 encoded text in catalogs created with the latest version (it would be shown as UTF-8 encoded).
DescAPI interface now allows for UTF-8 encoded file names, alias names, and descriptions. All standard main plugins have been adjusted to support handling files with Unicode file names, and description plugins are able to return Unicode descriptions. Several plugins do in fact support and generate Unicode descriptions when encountered, for example MP3 description plugin.
FreeDB/CDDB support was updated to protocol level 6, supporting Unicode.
Archive files support handling Unicode file names as well. Some archive file formats that are Unicode capable (RAR, 7-Zip) also support listing and extracting Unicode-named compressed files.
Drag&drop support in the program was completely rewritten and is now OLE based. Moving and reordering items in catalog is now much easier with insertion point showing in catalog tree, and allowing insertion before or after targeted item. Compare window showing actual files on disk now supports dragging listed files to other applications.
Enhanced "Insert Media" dialog, now with detailed disk description.
Search window now shows in the status bar the total search time needed for the last search operation.
Added new simple description plugin, extracting URL shortcut information from *.URL files.
Added new thumbnails plugin, Folder Thumbnails, extracting files like Folder.jpg as a thumbnail for the folder, in a similar manner to what Explorer does. There may be multiple files set as folder thumbnails, and are user-definable.
Fixed a third-party problem in the PNG library that prevented the program from starting correctly on some Windows 9x/ME systems.
Addressed some anomalies when comparing cataloged data.
Thumbnails sharpening algorithm now works once again.
Lots and lots of other minor changes, improvements, and optimizations.
