Directory Opus
« on: November 11, 2005, 07:28:30 PM »

Directory Opus goes beyond the simple file manager metaphor, and offers you a complete replacement for Windows Explorer and many other utility programs for handling FTP, ZIP, viewing files and images, running slideshows and more. It provides you with all this within a user-friendly and fully-configurable environment within which you can access and manage your important data with a minimum of effort. Harness the power of your computer like never before! Version 8.1 is a free update available to all users of Directory Opus 8. This may be obtained from the download page. There are many new features plus many smaller changes and bug fixes in this release. Full details of the changes are available in the Opus 81 Changes PDF document available here. In summary, the major new features include: * Unicode Support Directory Opus now has full Unicode support. Unicode is only supported for the later Windows Operating systems for Windows NT/2000/XP and above. Unicode allows Directory Opus to handle files and folder names containing non-Western characters. Two versions of Directory Opus will now be offered, Unicode and ANSI. Although we have no benchmarks comparing the performance of the different versions, the ANSI version may be faster and will certainly use less memory than the Unicode version †therefore, if you have no need for Unicode, we recommend that you should use the standard ANSI version. * New Folder Tabs There is now a set of Folder Tabs attached to each file display (so in a dual-display Lister there are two sets of tabs). By default the tabs are always visible, even when there is only one tab open, but a Preferences setting lets you hide the tabs until they are needed. * Support for Google Desktop Search If you have the Google Desktop Search tool installed, this is now integrated into the Directory Opus Find tool. If GDS is present a third tab will be added to the Find dialog letting you access the Google search. The results are displayed in the Find dialog or in a Lister as a collection as normal. * New Status Bar bar graphs * FTP New Features * Added full support for setting remote date of uploaded files (MDTM) for SSH. * Added support for remote file names which are illegal under Windows, containing characters such as colon ':†(for example on Linux systems). Now, Opus will display these in the FTP Lister and copy them by replacing the illegal character(s) with a hyphen '-'. * Added support for non-routable addresses in Passive connections. Opus will now connect to servers running behind NAT firewalls which return addresses such as 192.168.0.x and other non-routable addresses by assuming connections to the actual site address.
