- Lister now supports a text cursor, allows to center images, and resize only larger
- Change attributes allows to use/change content plugin values
- File operation logging
- Show drive letter in folder tabs
- File system plugins can now support custom columns and thumbnails
- Multi-rename-tool: Allow to edit target names directly
- More options in copy overwrite dialog: Compare by content, Rename target, automatic rename, copy all smaller or all larger
- Exclude directories in "Show"-"Custom...", e.g. with *.* | .cvs\
- Increased maximum command line length to 8191 (XP) and 2047 characters (Windows 2000), respectively
- Sort by additional columns, e.g. by size, then by date/time: Ctrl+click on additional columns
- Auto-complete path in command line, current directory, copy dialog etc.
- Use Shift+Del to remove unwanted entries from various comboboxes: Command line, search function, multi-rename-tool etc.

Just tested it, and like what I'm seeing. No longer is Total Commander one of the ugliest file-managers available, although I'd still prefer it if it would use my Windows icons for files/folders instead of bundling its own custom ones. Whether or not I'm buying the application depends on how the final version turns out, but as I just bought Dopus a couple of days ago, I can't see myself switching back to TC anytime soon.

I wonder whether this new ver sort subfolders.
I remember my previous test on TC 6.xx, when I click on [Date] column, only files are sorted by date, the subfolders are not.
