3.0 Changes

Post by pl5bnsf » 03 Dec 2012, 22:31

Hi,

Is there a full list of what has changed for 3.0? Ok, maybe not a full list, just a list of what a user should expect to see compared with 2.54.

The only thing I have seen so far is the 64-bit menus. Other than that it seems to be the same. Which is a very good thing! But the early alpha's had issues with some 3rd party software such as Beyond Compare and Actual Window Manager. I use both and have no issues now. Before, I saw it was a problem with the 3rd party software. Did you find a way around that?

Thanks,

Bob

There are many small bug fixes we didn't included to the readme. We plan to include UAC support to 3.1 version and also look at speed of copy operations.

Regarding faulty Beyond Compare shell extension: it should not crash 3.0 beta 1 because we turned off the "stress test mode" (was turned on for EAP versions). The bug is still there in Beyond Compare shell extension library, unfortunately they don't seem to bother to fix it.

AS 3.0 beta 1 looks rock stable from small number of bug reports we are receiving.

Thanks. Looking forward to continue to use Salamander for a long time. Have been frustrated in the past with 'upgrades' of various software packages that change things when they did need changing. Salamander's UI and general operation is perfect and am happy to know it's staying that way.

3.1? Your own updated roadmap says "Final version of Altap Salamander 3.0". Could you please make up your mind?

. Seems stable to me to. Only issue is in a Citrix-session where the shortcut for right panel drive list <alt-f2> is snatched by something in the session.
Go home Total Commander!
