Total Commander 9.0 beta 1 is available now!

You can download it from www.ghisler.com

This is a public pre-release version! Please be careful!

Please report bugs here in the TC 9.0 beta bug report forum, ONE BUG PER MESSAGE!

IMPORTANT: Currently the new functions are available only in English and German. More languages will be added soon.

Here is a list of the most important additions:

User interface:
  • View modes, can be switched manually via menu "Show", or automatically by rules
  • Show icons on folder tabs depending on the displayed folder
  • Vertical button bar (can be disabled via Configuration - Options - Layout)
  • Rubber band selection mode when using left mouse button selection, disable via settings
  • Show up to 3 external devices without drive letter (e.g. Android or Windows Phone) in Alt+F1/F2 drive dropdown list
  • Background transfer manager (F5-F2): Show second progress bar with overall progress if available
  • Themed text cursor, enable/disable in Configuration - Options - Colors
  • Use system drive and folder icons (dynamically loaded) instead of internal
  • Dimmed icons for hidden files/folders
  • Show small green arrow as overlay icon when a folder is open, e.g. in tree or when opening very large folder
  • Click on tab header with "locked but directory changed allowed" returns to base directory of that tab
  • Better support for high resolution screens
  • Set scaling of dialog boxes (OverrideDPI) via main settings - fonts
  • Option to show sizes with 1k=1000bytes instead of 1k=1024bytes
  • Option to show numbers in TBytes, with 1 or 2 decimal digits


File operations:
  • Unicode support for descript.ion files
  • Inplace rename: Use up/down arrow to jump to previous/next file (configurable)
  • F5 Copy/F6 Move: Show combobox with all open tabs and all subdirectories in the target panel (Shift: Source panel)
  • F5 copy: Skip empty dirs by appending |**\ to line "only files of this type"
  • Create and verify additional checksum types: SHA224, SHA384, SHA3_224, SHA3_256, SHA3_384, SHA3_512
  • Delete files directly (not to recycle bin): In case of errors, ask at the end of the entire operation
  • Delete files directly: Also offer "Skip all" when a file is missing
  • Re-use threads for delete, loading hints and ID-lists
  • Disable overwrite confirmation in sync: wincmd.ini [Confirmation] SyncConfirmOverwrite=0


FTPS, HTTPS:
  • Support TLS 1.1 and 1.2 with new openssl dlls
  • Use Windows certificate stores "ROOT" and "CA" to verify purchased server certificates


Packer:
  • ZIP unpacker: Support new compression method XZ (method 95) with updated tcmdlzma.dll and tclzma64.dll
  • Support invalid ZIP archives with no CRC in the local header and behind the zip file, e.g. created by owncloud
  • Support invalid ZIP archives with UTF-8-encoded names but missing UTF-8 flag (created by Dropbox)


Search function:
  • Use "Everything" tool for much faster search on NTFS drives, also on network shares if possible
  • Search with content plugins for text on main search page
  • Regular expressions supported in more types: Unicode UTF-8+UTF-16, Office XML
  • New option "Older than" working just like "Not older than"
  • Standalone search: Allow to search in search results (after feed to listbox) and selected files


Compare by content:
  • Show only differences, with additional lines above/below the differences, including editing
  • Edit mode: triple click now selects entire line


Multi-rename tool:
  • New buttons to insert other fields
  • Improved range selection dialog
  • If there are duplicate names, or names that already exist, offer to auto-rename to "name (2).ext", "name (3).ext" etc.


Lister:
  • Ctrl+Shift+Q: Opens Quick View in separate Lister window, updates contents when going to other file
  • View files of type RTF, BMP, JPG, PNG, GIF, ICO, HTML with internal viewers also in read-protected folders (via DuplicateHandle)
  • Use larger buffer sizes to handle longer blocks of text without line breaks


Other operations:
  • Double click/ENTER: Follow .url files pointing to directrories within Total Commander. Disable via wincmd.ini
  • Manual update check via menu Help - Check for updates now, using DNS lookup
  • Automatic update check (experimental): wincmd.ini [Configuration] AutoUpdateCheck= (1: all updates, or 2: no beta versions)
  • Ctrl+B in search result = Go to directory of file under cursor
  • Read virtual folders like the Network Neighborhood asynchronously (faster initial response) and in a background thread
  • Directory history: Remember name under cursor and position in list when entering a subdir via double click/Enter
  • Content plugins: new content field chooser dialog instead of menu. Also show field preview for file/dir under cursor
  • Synchronize dirs: Compare with multi-part ZIP, supports compare by content and view
  • Buttonbar, Startmenü: New Parameter %C1..%C9, %c1..%c9


Internal commands:
  • to focus specific panels, including tree: cm_FocusSrc, cm_FocusTrg, cm_FocusLeftTree etc.
  • to select/unselect one or more files: cm_Select, cm_Unselect, cm_Reverse
  • to open lister: cm_ListOnly, cm_ListMulti, cm_ListInternalMulti, cm_SeparateQuickView, cm_SeparateQuickInternalOnly
  • to save tabs to a specified file: SAVETABS, SAVETABSL, SAVETABSR, SAVETABS2, SAVETABS2L, SAVETABS2R
  • cm_wait, accepting wait time in milliseconds, e.g. cm_wait 1000. Can be combined, e.g. em_cmd1,cm_wait 1000,em_cmd2


A list of all corrections, also for previous versions, can be found in the history file.

As usual, the update is free for all registered users.
