CHANGELOG

What's New in version 4.44:

Enhancements and improvements:

  • If the 'Thumbnail' or 'Tile' view was selected for the file list, all images to be displayed with their thumbnails were loaded before a user input was accepted. Especially with RAW images this could take a long time. Now the images are listed with their filenames first and user input is accepted faster. The thumbnails are loaded in the background.
  • Display of RAW images from some Nikon models accelerated.
  • New version 0.27.4 of exiv2 library integrated, supports DNG 1.6 and Exif 2.32 (about 150 new tags).
  • Placeholder: for date/time properties the format can be selected. New date/time format: Exif.

Following error is corrected:

  • Program crash with exception 'System.NullReferenceException: Referencia a objeto no establecida como instancia de un objeto.'. Reported via AppCenter.

Hint:

  • For those who modified the general configuration file: the (undocumented) parameter DisplayFullSizeImageCacheContent has been removed.

What's New in version 4.43:

Enhancements and improvements:

  • The user defined settings saved by name in mask 'Adjust View' screen can be selected directly from the menu 'View'.
  • Recording location on map: the entries of the last used positions can be renamed. This allows saved locations that are initially listed only with coordinates to be given a descriptive name. Entries that are no longer needed can be deleted.

Following error is corrected:

  • Program crash when the last file in a folder was deleted.

Hint:

  • The general configuration file as well as other configuration files are no longer located in the program directory itself but in a subfolder 'config'. The name of the general configuration file for 32-bit and 64-bit is now identical. This hint is only important if you want to customize these files yourself.

What's New in version 4.41:

Enhancements and improvements:

  • Search via properties: data can be stored into XML-file and loaded at next start of program. This can save much time for preparing search.
  • Instead of just one image/video, several images/videos can now be handed over at the same time via drag-and-drop.
  • New menu entry 'Help ? GitHub': Direct access to the new created GitHub repository with source code, issues (errors, feature requests) and discussions.
  • If a mask-related help is available, it can be opened with F1.
  • F11 is assigned to the function 'Save image and switch to previous image'. If this assignment is deleted (see mask 'Customize mask', keyboard shortcut), F11 now toggles the view mode between normal and maximized.
  • No direct impact for users, but mentioned to ensure transparency: To facilitate the analysis of crashes reported via Appcenter.ms, the events 'Initialization finished', 'Start closing program = Save configuration' and 'End closing program' are logged in Appcenter.ms.

Following errors are corrected:

  • Program crash if a file was deleted between filling file list from search mask and double clicking on that item.
  • Program crash when starting program in English with Command strip set to 'Hide - symbols in menu'.
  • Program crash with exception 'System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: InvalidArgument=El valor de '-1' no es v?lido para 'startIndex'. Nombre del par?metro: startIndex'. Reported via AppCenter; similar to an error fixed in 4.40; the real cause has hopefully been found this time.
  • Images loaded with Nikon NEF Codec 1.31.1 were displayed with wrong colors.

What's New in version 4.40:

Following errors are corrected:

  • Program crash with exception 'System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Reported via AppCenter; unclear which activities caused this.
  • Program crash with exception 'NotImplementedException: Reported via AppCenter. Reason must have been a notification of change in file system which was not relevant for QuickImageComment and thus this type of notification will be ignored in the future.
  • Program crash when program was minimized and then terminated.
  • Program crash with exception 'IO.FileNotFoundException: Reported via AppCenter. The cause is probably that a file was deleted between filling the file list in the main screen and selecting it.

What's New in version 4.38:

Enhancements and improvements:

  • Program starts faster.
  • Export files and user configuration are written with encoding UTF-8 (including Byte Order Mark). Old configuration files still can be read.
  • New menu entry in main mask: Help - Webpage - Change history.
  • Date in mask 'Check for new version' is displayed in the format defined in the Windows system settings. In addition, the days since the last check are displayed.

Following errors are corrected:

  • The error reports submitted using Microsoft AppCenter did not contain the complete call hierarchy (stack trace). Therefore, reported errors could not be eliminated.

What's New in version 4.36:

Enhancements and improvements:

  • New version 0.27.2 of library exiv2 integrated with error fixes, additional lens data, Nikon/AutoFocus and sony/FocusPosition metadata.
  • The tags Exif.Image.XPAuthor, Exif.Image.XPComment, Exif.Image.XPKeywords, Exif.Image.XPSubject and Exif.Image.XPTitle can be now edited as strings. As their type is Byte previously they could be edited only as byte array.
  • Exif.Image.XPComment and Exif.Image.XPTitle can be chosen as tags to store input in text field for comment in the center of main mask, Exif.Image.XPAuthor as tag for input in combo box for the name of the artist (author).
  • Following errors are corrected:
  • Sometimes files were displayed not sorted in the list.
