What's New:

  • Lister: Allow to set maximum line length for text when not using word wrap (via wincmd.ini)
  • Configure via wcx_ftp.ini whether the current directory should switch back to a re-uploaded file after editing/saving a remote file

User interface:

  • When using multiple monitors, the position and size can be stored separately for each screen (switch with Win+Shift+Cursor left/right)
  • Button bar: Button size and small icon size can now be set separately for each screen scale (dpi)
  • Icon from internal association takes precedence over internal packer icon (e.g. for *.rar)
  • wincmd.ini [Configuration] IgnoreDirErrors=1 allows to switch to inaccessible or non-existent directories, shows in file list instead

File operations:

  • Shift+F7 creates directory in target panel
  • Button bar, command line: support shell GUIDs, e.g. to go to Explorer's recent dirs, use
  • cd ::{22877a6d-37a1-461a-91b0-dbda5aaebc99}
  • Files - change attributes: Button to load attributes from file under cursor in target panel

FTP:

  • Support for client certificates for ftps (ftp over ssl/tls) from Windows certificate store. Only works with schannel library on Vista or newer, not openssl
  • Set the FTPS mode via prefix: ftpes:// = explicit (MODE TLS), ftpis:// = impicit (encrypted from the start)

Compare by content:

  • Select all with Ctrl+A

Multi-rename tool:

  • New placeholder [f] for "First of each word uppercase (English in Titles)". Certain words like ze=2 face="arial">"a", "an" and "the" are converted to lowercase

Additional Information:

Since 32-bit plugins cannot be used by 64-bit programs, they need to be converted first. Therefore there will not be many plugins available initially for 64-bit. If you use plugins extensively, you should keep using the 32-bit version. You can install both in parallel to the same directory - there is now a separate installer which will install both together.
